Growth Spurts Chapter 7 (finally) · 11:04pm
After a couple of months too long, chapter seven of Growth Spurts is finally finished and live.
Be warned, it's about 17,000 words of the most gratuitous, self-indulgent, and downright filthy porn I've ever written.
Apologies again for the long wait. The sheer length that the thing ballooned into was obviously was a factor, but so was real life. Numerous bouts of writer's block, long periods of being hooked on XCOM 2 and Darkest Dungeon and Marvel Puzzle Quest, a naturally slow writing pace, and the occasional stretch of heavy workload at my job all played a part in the delay. But these are simply excuses. As always, I will continue striving to do better.
I'd like to give huge extra special thanks this time to a couple of fellow writers. Firstly Ariamaki, for going above and beyond his usual role as sounding board and brainstorming partner and actively helping write the really kinky bits. It's way better now than anything I would've written solo. And secondly ChuckFinley for some truly hardcore editing skills that kept this monster from being even wordier than it already is. Both of these guys are awesome and y'all should read their stuff if you're not already.
I'd also like to thank everyone who added this fic to libraries with names like "on hiatus," "abandoned," and "deadfics." I got a string of them in fairly quick succession not long ago, and it did an unbelievably good job of kicking my ass out of the depths of writer's block. So thank you, whoever you are, for motivating me to get my fic off those libraries!
Anyway, on to the next one. I'll try my damnedest not to take nine months to write it this time.
(PS: It should go without saying, but it's worth noting that this fic obviously kinda has to ignore Crusaders of the Lost Mark. Not so much for the cutie mark bits, but more the dramatic character shifts in Diamond and Silver. Just thought I'd make a note of it.)
