    Back to work...

    At the office following vacation, where I continue to man the fort pretty much alone while everyone else works from home, and on Feathered Hearts, where I have decided to do one more all-new transition chapter before resuming work on editing the original chapters. The objective is to merge the new storyline back into the original and smooth the way forward. As for why, when I thought about

    New M-rated Story by AJ_Aficionado...

    For the Summer Sin Celebration. For those of you unfamiliar with it, participating in it means you’re basically part of a story exchange; given an assignment to write someone else’s story request and keep it of limited length. This was the result of AJA’s assignment:

    Book 3, Chapter 6 of Into the Storm launches tonight...

    It’s amazing what a little time off can do for your creative juices. I have a couple rounds of editing and need to make two or three minor maps in Photoshop before it’s fully ready, but ready it will be for launch this evening. Hopefully that will be a good way for readers to start their weekends.

    Next Firefly chapter underway

    After a work-enforced two weeks away from writing, I’m finally on a weeklong vacation, and the result has been rapid progress on the next Firefly chapter, now at 6500 words and growing quickly. Though I’m uncertain of its final length, there’s a very good chance you’re going to see it launched on or before the weekend. Prereaders, stand by.

    At long last...

    I have an actual vacation on the way after a full month of extra hours. It’s been approved for next week, and I plan to do little but decompress and catch up on chores. Actual travel will be limited to maybe a day at the beach.

There are no brakes on the Feathered Hearts: Eros train · 5:09pm May 1st

With now three full chapters written and a fourth starting production shortly, 20k words are already down on the side story in under two weeks. My muse has grabbed hold of this thing and will not let go. What sucks is that I have to wait to release the ready chapters until I've got the entire story arc written (6-8 chapters?) and then write the next chapter of the regular Feathered Hearts story to link to it.

Okay, I don't have to, but I will, simply because when this thing goes live, I want to be able to release a series of early chapters immediately and the rest every one or two days to hopefully keep the heat on, coinciding it with a Feathered Hearts update to guide both new and returning readers to it.

It's looking good. My prereaders thus far--AJ_Aficionado, Silentwoodfire and Silverblade5 (aka the new Denim_Blue; he's slipped into the role so perfectly that he's even picked up Denim's habit of suggesting stuff that appears in the very next paragraph!)--have really taken to this thing, and have had no end of comments and suggestions for it. It's worth noting again that Fortrakt's surprise boner scene was originally SWF's idea, and he's come up with another couple interesting and tempting suggestions as well that I'm actually going to incorporate.

Without spoiling too much, to this point of what I have written, five humans and four griffons have drunk the "special reserve" cider. It's taking effect in some more quickly than others, but all are gradually but unknowingly falling under its influence, which you may recall from my Nightmare Night and The Lawyer and The Unicorn stories has the effect of slowly but surely evaporating inhibitions and accenting the feel/flavor of everything, including the cider itself, making it so you keep wanting more.

So it's addictive and potentially dangerous; even Applejack would tell you not to have more than a mug or two of it at a time. This is why the Kingdom considers zap apples a controlled substance and wouldn't normally let the cider through customs. How it got through is a surprise to be revealed, but as I said in an earlier blog, there's some intrigue at play here due to a third party, which will be revealed in the first regular story chapter following the side story arc.

That party and their not-at-all-nice intent will become clear in the first regular Feathered Hearts chapter after this one, which will deal with the aftermath, and how they determine what happened/who the culprits are. You may also recall from my other stories that too much zap apple causes short term memory loss as well, so that's how these events will (mostly) not be recalled afterwards and the regular story can resume. Nevertheless, it does happen, and you can expect some wild times and some surprising pairings ahead--yes, even other than the obvious ones. The key is that it's not all done willy-nilly; the characters have to gradually fall into it while still being themselves.

Want at least one hint? Fine. There's one type of interspecies action I've never seen on site that this story will fill. For now, that's all you get. :raritywink:

I'm going to keep writing this for as long as my muse remains engaged, and I'm still enjoying the hell out of it. So far, that doesn't show signs of changing, so we are still full speed ahead. There are no brakes on this train, folks, and when the times comes, I hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I am writing it!

You're moving fast on it. And somehow, it's given me a craving for fried chicken.

Sorry to make you wait! We'll be aiming for a release at month's end, round about Memorial Day here in the U.S. I want to have at least six chapters finished and ready before launching.

edit: is somebody going to become a real cowboy??!

Well, I'd simply say that the cowgirl position will figure prominently in due course! :rainbowwild:
