Status for #8 · 6:59pm Aug 14th, 2015

I'm quite happy with the response with #7 so far. Seems the vast majority of you loved it, and I'm tickled pink about that since so much important stuff finally paid off this time around. A few tweaks from the sound of it needed, but nowhere near the rewrites that #5 needed or that #6 is, sadly, still in need of. :twilightsmile:

Sadly, I haven't quite had time this week for diving into that type of editing. :ajsleepy:

Because I'm nearly done with #8. :ajsmug:

11664 words and about 80-85% done at the moment, so a bit 'shorter' but its basically the scene and note I wanted #7 to originally end on so hopefully you guys like it.

It's one of those rather delicate scenes that need so be done just right as to not fall flat on its face, so no ETA since I might need to tweak things quite a lot. Couple of thousand words, no exaggeration, have already hit the cutting-room floor.

Again.

Yeah... Don't even think bonus chapters is a possible thing anymore. I think its less clutter inducing to just put the entire Google-drive folder into 'Anybody Can Comment' at the end of the story, and call it a day by now.

(And yeah, I'm s~o good at placeholder names. :ajbemused:)

I'm happy that the next chapter will come soon. BTW, what you meant about the bonus chapters not appearing and the Anybody can Comment section? I'm not judging, I'm just a little confused about that comment.

Calling it now: The next update will be all about Battyshy taking control of Dresden, mistaking Rainbow for a giant blueberry and accidentally causing the creation of the Awesome Court of shampires. They will turn out to be able to subsist entirely on a diet of hot air and sour grapes.

I meant there's so much cut content by now that a single bonus chapter with it would be unreasonably long, and a whole series of them would bloat the story too much.

Gdocs however has this function were you can share documents and even whole folders, meaning I can just leave a link at the end to anybody that actually cares about bonus stuff like this.

Hope that explained it. :twilightsmile:

Although I'm sure Nemo would love an excuse to dump body-glitter all over Dresden while she's asleep, and snicker at the screams of horror. :rainbowlaugh: :flutterrage:

A very nice little update, and woohoo to being mostly done! Still, i hope your muse doesn't decide on taking a vacation across the borders of never when and the block descends from the heavens to crush inspiration.

During the day, Harry Dresden is a nerdy PI with a questionable taste in accessories and a love life even a Cardinal would pity. At night... he is exactly the same thing. He is vengeance. He is arson. He is usually not the night. He is Fruitbatmare and he is the wizard not even this city could have done anything to deserve.

Don't you dare complain, with a screenshot like that you were asking for it.

My parents are deeeeeeeead!

WooHoo! Woo!

New season of Doctor who to watch on Netflix and now this? Woo!

Probably a decent way to do it, either that or make a separate story called 'Dark Horse_What Could Have Been'

I have been considering the later, actually, but those type of 'sub' stories tend to have a really hard time passing moderation.

That, and since I'm planning at least a spin off and a sequel down the line I'm worried that might muddy the waters in a way that simply leaving a link in the post mortem won't.

In his defense, he's really putting in a lot of effort. He already has the day job aspect down pat - guy's a natural at the whole "mid-30s bachelor who has never had a real job" thing. Managed to find himself a little private island with a roomy underground fruit-Batcave to lair in and all, even. The wiring is kind of budget, but it came pre-furnished with a pretty nice vintage Rogues' Gallery. The "billionaire playboy" part is still a bit of a work in progress, though.

He did manage to find himself a butler somehow, though. No, I don't have any idea, either.
