The Pieces: George

This is the final part of a 7-part sequence. (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6).

Oh God. I just finished part 1 of "End Game". Okay. Tuesday for that. *insane giggles*

The previous stories in this series (my Keptverse) began with The Games (six parts) and continued with The Network (one part), The Players (seven parts), and The Gambler (seven parts). The whole series will terminate with the next sequence, "End Game". Which, at the moment, I know what happens, have the first part written, have a clear idea of where it's going, and need to rough out the arc so I can tell you how many chapters. Yes I do. *more insane giggles* Really, it feels so weird to be almost done. This is 56 000 words of fiction done already, and at least 10 000 words to go...

The story may be regarded as fanfic set in [info]poisontaster's Keptverse. There is a species of cast list here.

An error of judgement on your part, then? )

To the final part of The Games, End Game.

The Pieces: Giles

This is part 6 of a 7-part sequence. (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5).

I apologise for the long delay! Part of this was a bit of a discussion I had with Poisontaster (which worked out all right in the end, but we hadn't ever actually talked about my writing FPF in the Keptverse: cleared the air/clarified things, basically, this is definitely not-official not-supported fanfic, but it's cool.) But that was last week. Most of the delay was I've had this hideously awful cold and it's eaten my brain and I was fighting to get part 6 and part 7 written and get at least 300 words into "End Game" before I posted part 6. But I did and I have and here you are. I am so sorry.

The previous stories in this series (my Keptverse) began with The Games (six parts) and continued with The Network (one part), The Players (seven parts), and The Gambler (seven parts). The whole series will terminate with the next sequence, "End Game", which is being written! Yay.

I am retired. I was Ripper. And then I was Giles. And now I'm... someone else I don't even know. )

to Part 7

*tired yay*

I finished writing Part 6, at last, despite many distractions.

Also, my ankle is better.

Part 6 will be posted when Part 7 is written. And then I finally get to start on "End-Game". *hums merrily*

The Pieces: Adam

This is part 5 of a 7-part sequence. (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4).

Okay, I meant to put this up earlier in the day, but this morning at about 10am I stepped off a bus, on to the edge of a pothole, and I twisted my ankle. It was no fun. I am, however, now sitting in a friend's house (ground-level, no steps) with laptop and wifi. If I tell Ajay I have two sections of a story to write, she may even nag me on your behalf till I do. And as I can't go anywhere...

The previous stories in this series (my Keptverse) began with The Games (six parts) and continued with The Network (one part), The Players (seven parts), and The Gambler (seven parts). The whole series will terminate with the next sequence, "End Game", which is planned but not yet written.

This is part 4 of a 7-part sequence. (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). Hooray, I have part 5 also written, which will be posted Friday, and hopefully I can get 6 and 7 written by the weekend.

I suck at icons

Anyone want to do an AU Keptverse icon for the community?

(Which has nothing there. When I'm done with or stuck on The Pieces", I should add stuff to it.)

On the AU Keptverse

Okay.

As far as I know, I'm the only person writing AU Keptverse fanfic.

The Keptverse, if you've missed this so far, is an AU North American Empire (United States of North America) including Canada and Mexico, inhabited pretty much entirely by the cast of prime time TV series, directors, script writers, and extras, in which debt slavery is real.

My AU Keptverse is exactly like the original Keptverse except that all the TV series are real: characters, not cast, inhabit the United States of North America. Oh, and I threw in movies, too.

If you'd join/participate in a community for the AU Keptverse (FPS stories only) here on IJ, please comment on this post, and if you have any ideas about what to call it, please say... I'd be happy to create/mod such a community, and leave it open for stories, meta, anything connected to AU Keptverse that people want, but I don't particularly want to set a community up unless people are going to use it.

Other news:

I'm on to part 5 of "The Pieces". Part 6 and 7 to go. But, it's shaping up to be a fairly brisk story - and tomorrow I go back to work. :-( So, I'm thinking I shouldn't post till I can tell you definitely I'll be doing so in sequence, one post a day till I'm done - and I won't be sure I can do that till I'm moving down to the finish line on part 7.

("End Game" is taking place in the back of my head at the moment, but it is definitely brewing up.)

On the other hand, if you want 3 and 4 today and tomorrow, I can do that, but there might be a wait then for part 5...

The Pieces: Willow

This is part 1 of a 7-part sequence following on immediately from the last part of The Gambler. Part 2 is written and will be posted when I'm done with Part 3, as usual....

Sorry for the long gap - partly Yuletide, partly family stuff, partly computer woes, partly a nasty cold that Santa gave me for Christmas. (He's a git, by the way.) I want to thank Dusk Peterson, whose lovely and thoughtful review of my Keptverse series to date really gave me the emotional kickstart I needed to sit down and finish part 2, despite all difficulties.

Yeah, I'm fine. The shaking is a side-effect of the fear. )

The Gambler - Part Seven

This is the last part of the third story (first part, second part, third part, fourth part, fifth part, sixth part) that began with The Games (six parts) and continued with The Network (one part), and The Players (seven parts)

The story may be regarded as fanfic set in [info]poisontaster's Keptverse. There are at least two more sections to go: "The Pieces" and "End Game" (I have a couple of ideas for stand-alone stories, too).

There'll be time enough for counting when the dealing's done )

The next section begins once I’m finished writing for Yuletide. *tears hair* Send good thoughts!

Update: the next section is posted now. The Pieces: Willow

(There's a one-part story The Cripple which thematically falls between "The Gambler" and "The Pieces".)

The Gambler - Part Six

This is the sixth part of the third story (first part, second part, third part, fourth part, fifth part) that began with The Games (six parts) and continued with The Network (one part), and The Players (seven parts)

The story may be regarded as fanfic set in [info]poisontaster's Keptverse. I also updated the cast list here.

Part Seven, the last part of "The Gambler", is now complete and will be posted tomorrow. The next story is "The Pieces", another ensemble section, and the last story is "End Game", plus a couple of possible stand-alones in which neither Richard Kimble nor Sam Gerard appear. But I really need to stop writing this in order to write my Yuletide story, so I'm resolved: I won't start on "The Pieces" till I'm done with Yuletide, at least to first draft.


And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even )

The Gambler – Part Five

This is the fifth part of the third story (first part, second part, third part, fourth part) that began with The Games (six parts) and continued with The Network (one part), and The Players (seven parts)

The story may be regarded as fanfic set in [info]poisontaster's Keptverse. I also updated the cast list here.

By the way, according to my current plans: Part Seven is the last part of "The Gambler", and the next story is "The Pieces", another ensemble section, and the last story is "End Game". There may or may not be another short stand-alone called "The Runaways". On the other hand, I really need to stop writing this in order to write my Yuletide story. And the best time to do this may be when I finish "The Gambler".

And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep )

Meme: Watching The Show In Your Head

Invented from [info]the_willow's post of the same name:

Give me a show you know I write fanfic for, even just once, and I'll tell you the difference between the show I think they intended us to watch and the show I see in my head.

In laptop news, my laptop is with a cheery and confident repairperson, who appears to think that I can have it back tomorrow.

I've been sort of writing snippets of "The Gambler".

The Players: Giles

This is part seven (the last part) of the second section of the story (part one, part two, part three, part four, part five. part six) that began with The Games (six parts) and continued with The Network (one part).

Yes, it's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after. )

The first section of the next part, The Gambler begins here.
