Dear Readership, Followers, Brother and Other Cretins,
You may have noticed over the year or so Night's Favoured Child has been in progress, I update very infrequently. That is due to many factors, including my appalling natural attention span, the access to internet serving as a source of procrastination, numerous other commitments - both online and in real life - and, of course, work. Exams and studying and the need to do homework etcetera is a constant plague, as it is for many of us, and I am very prone to procrastination and mind-wandering even. So, naturally, I will work very slowly. Sometimes it is also to do with my mood; that I just don't feel like writing for a while or I'll only write a little bit.
My answer to the flood of questions regarding the status of the story and my work progress is the blog title. Also, if you would all kindly stop saying "MOAR!" (or a variation thereof) or any other cutesy memetic internet-speak implicitly (or otherwise) demanding me to hurry the fuck up and entertain you already, it would be much appreciated. After all, it isn't as endearing/funny/adorable as you think it is. You will all know this is dead if and when I make a blog post saying that I hate the story and the fandom and therefore will not waste my time on it anymore and instead focus on writing fanfic of other fandoms and hanging out in Alternatehistory.com.
The reasons for recent gaps have been all of the above, with the added stress of Christmas, January exams and spontaneous family tragedies. I would recommend ignoring my story in between updates, so you won't really notice how long its been and you won't be overcome with the urge to add your questions or demands regarding the status of the story and its progress to the many dozens of others.
PS: Also, if you could impose a limit of none to three (depending on how you space them out) emoticons in your posts, I would be much obliged. Spamming faces of a pony crying or whatever is not needed to get the point across. On the other hand, using multiple emoticons as rating scales (e.g. five Spike Staches out of five) is fine and dandy.
With Bitter Love,
