So for those of you following Fangbangers Anonymous: the TB/SVM Writers Directory may have already seen the little diddle I’ve been posting but for those of you who haven’t, I wrote something
despite claiming I no longer would as part of the annual Advent Calendar. Go check that out here because reblogging something on WordPress seems to result in nothing and be sure to read the other lovely bits and stories that make up the calendar!
Apologies if this has now shown up twice in your inbox.
The final chapter of At First Sight is up and makes this story now complete. Click below for the link and leave the following text for what it is, or later, if you’re the impatient sort.
As you will notice all stories on my site are now marked as complete, which can only mean…
Yes, I’m sorry but this will be my final story. It’s a decision I made a long time ago, I wrote this story knowing it would be the last thing to finish even though it was only ever intended to be a short side project. There’s no real special reason why I’ve chosen to stop, I’ve simply found the limits of what is possible with fan fiction and it’s no longer as exciting and new as it once was, and I don’t see that changing. It’s not a case of a waning muse or anything specific, inspiration might strike at some point and demand itself to be written, but I sincerely doubt it. I know an ending when I see it, and it’s now. It really is as simple as that.
I ‘ll still be around, working behind the scenes for the FA blog so I’m not completely gone and Beehl and his constipated feline woes might still rear his ugly head now and then. Writing, it’s been fun and never something I really considered doing until I just started typing away at something and I’d like to think I’ll continue doing it somehow but I might just as easily be distracted by something completely different, we’ll see, it’s the fun bit about the unknown.
Thank you all for your wonderful interaction, support, and encouragement all this time. It feels like yesterday that I entered Sephrenia’s contest as a complete unknown and I’m still taken aback that I ended up winning. It didn’t take long for msbuffy to enter my life and assist me with the insane workload I’d taken on trying to get my stories out that I’d previously quietly been penning away at. I will forever be grateful for the work she put in right alongside me but I’m more in awe of her wonderful personality, her giving spirit, and listening ear throughout this journey.
Much thanks to you all.
*I have yet to decide whether to take this site down or not but there might be a possibility of it and I will give advanced warning of this if this is the case. I will be removing my stories from story hosting sites by the end of the month.
Well, mostly Eric was waiting on an answer. Second to last chapter…
… and apparently you’re all dying to know about it. Well the next chapter happens to be aptly titled, enjoy!
(For admin purposes, this is the third update on this story since rebooting it to life, Ch. 23 and Ch 24 preceded it)
I don’t know if everyone’s caught up yet but I figured let’s keep the momentum going 😀 Next chapter is here!
I’m aware the absence was looooooooooong… without going into it too much there were good reasons, bad reasons, and everything in between and then suddenly it was vacation time. Good news is that after all that I managed to finish up this story over the last month and msbuffy had the new chapters back to me super quick so I’m ready to start posting and see this baby to its end <cracks hands>. I don’t have a posting schedule set out yet, will depend on response and how quickly people are keeping up with it and I don’t want to be that daily inbox spammer either…
So for those who need a refresher or are new to the story, prologue can be found here, chapters are generally short so not much of a task to catch up. Description is as follows:
Take one ill fit bride and add one clueless groom and watch experts arrange what they deem the ‘perfect’ marriage that proves to be inconvenient to everyone involved but the happy couple. Mix in a healthy dose of scepticism, resentment, and rivalry along with some disturbing ‘senior’ moments and you might come close to getting what this story is about.
This is me needing to write something fun and light while the angst continues elsewhere… E/S and any other disturbing coupling you can think of (nothing graphic I swear! I need to retain some sanity through it all…)
E/S – Wildly AU and OOC – Rated M
For those who need to refresh where this last left off, previous chapter is here.
New chapter click below ∇. Obligatory words of warning, I had left this story for a bit so there is a change in tone which in part had to do with some of the reasons for my absence (see above) but it’s also the way I roll so as ever prepare thyself accordingly 😉 It’s good to be back and I hope you’re all still out there and will embrace these two bickering fools again!
It took me forever to get this up and running, damn you WP and your slow ass dashboard! Anyhow, it’s up, enjoy it! It’s short but sweet.
Eric shaped cookies for those who got ‘the darling buds of May’ reference! I’m sick of staring at this chapter, msbuffy giggle snorted her way through it while editing so I am unleashing it on the world and stuff… As usual click on the links below or reread Chapter 20 first if you’re catching up.
So my temporary hiatus lasted a little longer than I expected, but hopefully I’ll be able to pick this story up where it left off in the same spirit. Saying that the next chapter is slightly different than what went before it, but I’m pretty sure no one will mind the turn this story is taking. Click on the banner or link below. If you want to refresh a bit first; Chapter 19.
In case it has somehow escaped your notice, the Fanatic Fanfiction Awards are now taking votes and the You Want Blood Awards are asking you to submit your nominations by the 22nd of April. You certainly don’t need to do it on my account but if you are going to fill in the nomination form and you’re unsure whether a story qualifies due to the dates I’d like to direct you to the Fangbangers Anonymous’ Recently Completed Stories Archive to help you out. With the exception of my current and only WIP “At First Sight” all my active works of the past year are listed there by date of completion along with the (completed) works of many other writers in this fandom you might want to nominate.
Right, next chapter is up now, click below on the banner or link. There won’t be an update next week, it’s Easter, terrorists have been messing around ‘next door’ and while I think laughter is a great remedy to many a thing I’m not feeling the funny that this story requires right now. I’ll try for the week after but no guarantees.
