Read this now: "Collaborators" · 2:41am
Baal Bunny's "Collaborators" won second place in this month's Writeoff Association contest (topping a crowded field and only barely losing to Cold in Gardez), and the dark lapine lord has been hard at work over the past week making the story even better based on feedback from a dozen other top authors. It was posted to FIMFiction today, and given that the author is barely in double-digit followers, this both needs and deserves the extra attention to push it into the featurebox. Having read the new version myself, I'm awed at how rich and smooth the finished product is.
It's a story of Ahuizotl striking at Daring Do in a way she never expected: through A.K. Yearling. Except his motives aren't quite what they seem … and maybe, as circumstances push them into working together on the next Daring Do book, she'll find that neither are hers.
I should note that there's no Romance tag, but there are some shipping overtones. There's also some gripping tension, marvelous introspection, and in general just stop what you're doing and click, this is good stuff.
 According to Google's thesaurus, "overtone" and "undercurrent" are synonyms. Huh. I wasn't expecting that.
I'm keeping myself more honest about writing regularly by tracking how much I get done each night. See my recent writing progress.
