The Nature of the Beast and IWRY
Oct. 31st, 2013 @ 04:54 pm
I’ve been hiding under a rock, I know, so I hope someone is still there... *Waves to everyone listening*
You might have seen on the IWRY LJ that Dark Star has dragged me out from under said rock to host the 2013 IWRY Fic Marathon, so I hope to see you all there, at least.
As you know, IWRY is for standalone stories, so the real piece of news, for anyone who’s interested, is that Dark Star has been incredibly generous, and allowed me to use the event for the very final story in The Nature of the Beast series.
Yes, Schism is written and done, all 55,000 words of it, bringing our story cycle to a close. I hope you will all enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I’m remarkably sorry to have reached the end. There are so many untold stories in it, but then, there are so many other untold stories that I want to write, and I’m definitely not getting any younger!
Stop looking for a link for Schism! You know I can’t post it until it’s up at IWRY. And don’t ask me when it will be up there, because Dark Star hasn’t told me yet. You’ll just have to check in each day... Such a hardship, to read all those new stories.
I do have another, very short story that I’ve written for the event, and I hope you’ll enjoy that, too.
I have been waiting for this for years. Best fandom news I've heard in LONG time. I can't wait to read it!
I really hope you enjoy it after such a long wait!
There is simply no way that I'm not going to love it. I've never found a story of yours that I didn't love.
Congrats! And I don't think I've read The Nature Of The Beast series? Maybe I'll recognize some of the stories when I go looking :-) I love all your stuff I've read, too, so yayz! New reading :-)
Hey!!!! How are you??? I am so excited to see you back here!
Yes, I am participating again this year too (and it's all your fault).
There are no words for how eager I am to read your latest works!!!!!
Hey, Gabrielle! Actually, it feels nice to have crawled back out from under the rock... :~))))
How are you doing?
And it's fantastic you're still doing IWRY. I'm happy to be to blame for that... *G*
You might need a soft cusion and copious amounts of tea for Schism... *Tee hee*
I have missed you very much, I hope you know.
As for me, I have been writing up a storm. EEK!
I love stretching my wings into Bangel skies. Thanks again!
Oh how I look forward to lengthy work from you!
Then let's talk!
Write me and tell me what you've been up to.
Writing up a storm? Fantastic!
A Bangel convert! (Although I know you'll never abandon your first love...) Wheee!
I just emailed you. Hopefully I sent the email to the correct address.
Yes, you've won me over, at least a little bit.
I'll go check my emails...
Yep, I can be persistent...

Whee! I'm looking forward to it and the entire marathon.
Sadly, I won't have anything of my own in it. I'm almost done with a really long story but I knew there was no way I'd finish in time.
Almost done? Like you could be finished by the end of the month?
I know. I'm a pest...

It's possible. I'd love to get it betaed but I guess that could happen after the fact if need be.
Have you got a beta arranged?
Not that I'm pushy or anything. As you know, I'm a shy, retiring soul....

I haven't looked for a beta yet. I'd prefer to wait until it's all written because I'd like the beta to make sure the plot all hangs to gether, suggest of some parts need to be added to, etc. I think that's harder if they're reading it piecemeal.
You are so right.
Look forward to it being done! (And maybe in IWRY..... *G*)
Um. Is this the reason I haven't heard from you in, like, forever? Not that I have been super-fantastic about being in touch either...but still!!!!

Finally found Schism and just finished it. This has been the most magnificent of series! The complexity of it simply staggers me. Not just the complexity of the plot, but the emotional complexity of the characters. I feel privileged to have gotten to read all of it and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing it.
