But seriously. I'm done.
With the first chapter of volume 5 of affliction.
Still no response on giving out links to adult-rated stories... so blech. Anywhore, it'll be up sooner or later! I'm submitting them both now!
RIP my message inbox.

I can't post it just yet, however. I've gotta finish the first chapter of Affliction: Volume 5, first!
That being said, the link to said juicy goodness (rated R for clop!) is on my patreon feed. I left it public, because I'm not evil You can find a link to that in my bio.
I'm still waiting on a reply email from one of the mods telling me if I can post the link to it in a blog post... I seem to remember seeing something like that: That it would be okay to post a link to an adult story, so long as it was on fimfiction, because then you have to have adult content enabled to even view the thing. Buuut I can't find anything like that in the FAQ. So...
I don't want to break any rules! So I'm giving you all the information you need to find it yourself!
So, go, find it yourself!
Hopefully, I'll have volume 5 chapter 1 done soon, and I can destroy my poor, poor message inbox with two affliction stories at once!

I dunno how to do it all!
Should I go with concurrent uploads, or staggered/as-I-write-them uploads?
The reason for this is, the two stories will be having a good deal of their plot-points happening concurrently! For instance, in the spoiler so that people can't complain:
In Affliction 5, chapter 1, we see Kuno instructing changelings to 'become more independent' and 'find something unique to wear'. They all come back with collars with bells on them. Except Chitin, who comes back with a golden Ankh in her ear.
In Chitin's story, chapter 1, we see Chitin erm... 'bribing' the jeweler to give her said piece of jewellery. While walking home, she walks past the pet shop, with has an entirely new room built onto it, has been repainted, and completely cleaned top-to-bottom just that morning.
So if you read any one of them, it could spoil various parts of the partner story.... So staggering them to be released as I finished them like I usually do, might end up spoiling some of the partner plots before that chapter is even released!
The alternative is to release chapter at a 1-for-1 ratio. One chapter of Affliction, one chapter of Chitin's. Problem with that is that there could then be a longer wait between each pair of chapters being released...
So I dunno what to do!
I think I will stagger the release of the stories, submission-wise. They're both Affliction. When I posted volume 4 it was at the top of the box in like an hour. I don't want to spam the feature box. So I'll likely post Affliction 5, and then Chitin's story a few days after, when the heat on the previous posting has gone down a bit. You guys will have to wait an extra few days or so before getting tasty Chitin story start, but what can I do?
My patreon people will have access to Chitin's story early, I guess I can't give links to anyone else because NSFW blog posts aren't allowed and are never coming back. Sigh. And Chitin's story is really, really NSFW. Right out of the gates!
Though, I will add: You could totally go to my patreon page, hit the 'activity' button and look at the posts there that are for everyone, not just paid patreons. No sign-up required!
So... whatcha all think? Concurrent release? Or give-no-fucks-just-post-what-ya-got? I kinda wanna do concurrent releases, but I wonder if the effort would even be worth the meagre payoff of keeping the two stories in line...

Affliction 4 is over. Done. Finito.
Time to start on volume 5.
Which will run concurrently with 'Chitin's Story', so you'll see a fair bit of crossover in the story arcs of those two.
Sorry if I've been slow to the whole writing thing lately. I've been sick. And it's been really bad the last few weeks. My mother thinks Ross River fever or glandular fever. I think meh. I'll know when the blood results get back. Either way, it makes writing a chore. I can't think of words. Sentences don't work. Plot points stop making sense to me, etc etc etc.
But I'm gonna keep trying!
P.S. Chitin is gonna be sexy! I already have her all figured out! Shorter mane than Kuno, more punkish, and a single gold hoop, and a single gold ankh on said hoop. Because it represents 'life'. And she's totes deep like that.
Keep an eye out for all new affliction shenanigans.
And join the Affliction-verse group! You can ask me things in the threads area!
Anyhow, be cool!
8w, 5dUpcoming Affliction story!18 comments · 355 views
I'm planning a new thing! Based in the Affliction-verse.
Now, if you've been following affliction 4, you'll know how this is possible in the universe of it. And I'm intending it to be 'An Affliction of the Heart: Chitin's Tale(/story)'. Chitin being the changeling currently known as 'Speaker'.
And the reason I say this now instead of just working on it quietly and posting it sometime is a few things:
First off, no, I'm not stopping work on Kuno/Warden. Not yet. Don't be stupid. They need another entire volume just to disentangle the absolutely nutty web of plot lines holding them all together.
And the second, main point... I'm kinda leaning heavily towards making Chitin's story adult rated. Clop and whatnot.
It'll still be mostly story-based, with clop for flavour. But it will also enable a lot more fun changeling things without having to shy away from certain points because of the rating! I have to do that with the current Affliction series. I can't make the descriptions too adult. Because the children might see!
The main reason that I bring this up now is that I am capable of being reasoned with. If enough people complain about the upcoming story being adult, I could maybe make it cleanish rated like the current Affliction series.
So, would it be terribly problematic for the majority of you if the new series was rated adult?
P.S. I am most definitely back, bitches! Four story updates in a week! Aww yeah!
