Because this fic is running on 2 different story lines for now, I was thinking maybe it would be best for me to just go ahead and finish the rest of the mane six chapters and publish them without waiting for the CMC chapters. The stories do not converge until near the end, and technically I would be able to write the conclusion without spoiling any of the CMC's remaining captures. So, I figured I'd put it to a vote: Should I go ahead and write/post the remaining non-CMC exclusive chapters without waiting for the rest of the CMC chapters?
If I do this, the remaining CMC chapters will be treated as "lost episodes" that get added later on as they get completed.

After speaking with JXWheeler , we've decided it would be best for the project if we get a second co-author. The newest chapter has been delayed due to a series of events in JXWheeler's life, and the fact that it's not my turn has made me feel more inclined to slack off on preparing my own next chapter (although now that I'm coming into Summer vacation, I may end up being more inclined to work on it). With that in mind, we've decided that the best way to move the project along would be if JXWheeler had some assistance on the chapters he's in charge of writing. That way, the CMC chapters would be finished sooner because there would be 2 people working on them, and the mane six chapters would be finished sooner because my turn would arrive sooner each time. If you're interested, feel free to comment, or contact me on my Tumblr (http://rainbowdashtheawesome.tumblr.com/); I'm on my Tumblr much more than Fimfiction.

As I mentioned before, I do my best writing in the Spring, but the Spring quarter doesn't start for about 6 weeks, so I've come up with a way to set it up so I'll be able to easily cover all of my chapters in no time flat by doing what I do best: Outlining. Often, when planning for an essay in school, I'll make the outline so detailed that it becomes longer than the final product, because outlining is much easier to handle than just writing from start to finish. Because of that, I've decided that what I'm going to do is write all of my remaining chapters simultaneously by doing them in layers. First, I'll make a Google doc for each one. Next, I'll give each one a very basic outline listing the basic ideas of the chapter, then I'll keep going through them and expanding on them until the outlines are big enough to be quickly converted to narrative format. Once all of them are ready, I'll finish them off. Of course, writing about a dozen chapters at the same time won't be a quick process, but the payoff will be well worth the wait.

About a month ago, I realized that there's a pattern with my writing: it seems to peak in the Spring. I can't explain why, but for the last 2 school years in a row I could barely think about writing fics during the Fall and Winter quarters, but as soon as the Spring quarter started my desire to write greatly intensified and I ended up being able to write far more rapidly and enthusiastically than during the rest of the year. After all, before I wrote Gotta Dash 'em All, I hadn't written anything since the previous Spring Quarter, and suddenly I wrote that entire fic in the course of Spring Break. Also, thanks to the 4 streetpass games I downloaded to my 3Ds's last week, the hypnotic spell Pokemon X & Y had had over me has been broken, so I can easily stop playing for several days at a time. With all that in mind, I think it's safe to say I'll be able to finish pretty much all of my chapters for the Pokemon Crusaders during the Spring quarter, although I'll only end up being able to publish them as my co-author fills in the blanks with his chapters.

I think I owe you all an explanation about why my next chapter is taking so long. Basically, it's because of 2 things:
1) Pokemon X & Y. They've been taking up a lot of my free time outside of school.
2) Chemistry. I'm taking 3 courses this quarter, and while I'm excelling at 2 of them, my chemistry class is killing me. This is the last level of chemistry I need to take, but I had to take the penultimate level of chemistry twice, so I'm worried I'll have to do the same with this one. The combination of stress at the difficulty of the class and the amount of studying I've been doing has made me lose much of my muse. Of all the courses required for my major, this chemistry class is the last one that doesn't seem like it'll be fairly simple for me to pass, and even if I do retake it I have no doubt the second attempt will be a success.
As soon as this quarter is over (about halfway through December), I should be able to concentrate much more on my fic. However, there may be a small 1-2 week delay at the start of Winter Break, because just yesterday I got a summons for jury duty scheduled for the middle of Finals week.
