    Time Event
    The Games: Part One
    The sections in this multipart story (my Keptverse) begin with The Games (six parts) and continued with The Network (one part), The Players (seven parts), The Gambler (seven parts), The Cripple (one part), The Pieces (seven parts), End-Game (5 parts), and the concluding and completed section In the Mouth of the Wolf (nine parts).

    This is sort of a story in the Keptverse. The Keptverse was invented by [info]poisontaster, named for her story A Kept boy, though I found out about it via the incomparable [info]darkrose, who started writing her own Keptverse fanfic, in particular A Question of Compromise, which is an episodic fanfic (and the individual episodes are quite worth reading for themselves - I especially recommend My Sight Grows Stronger, which is:
    "This is the text of the standard talk that Dylan Neal, Joe's former owner, gives to pro-abolition groups. I originally wrote it for myself, as a way to get down the backstory between Dylan and Joe, but it also shows a little about the world, and about one of the possible ways that a slave can be trained."

    As far as I know, the only other fanfic in the Keptverse on IJ is [info]telesilla's Lock and Key.

    The main reason why this is only sort of a story in the Keptverse is that everyone else writing in the Keptverse seems to be writing RPS, which makes me neurotic, even though I accept that given that these RPS are taking place in an alternate universe, it's not as if even the RP themselves could possibly take this seriously. (The other reason is that my motto is Does Not Play Well With Others, so I'll feel free to modify any aspect of the Keptverse as I go along, tra la la...)

    This story may be regarded as fanfic written in the Keptverse, if you like. There is the beginnings of a cast list here.
