I'd just like you all to know

I finished the third and final draft of Part 4 of "End-Game" today.

(Seriously. I normally don't count drafts because I'm always revising, but when I end up having to go back to the beginning and start all over again twice, then I think I get to count.)

So. I swear: obviously I have a nightmare week at work ahead of me and I don't know how much writing I'm going to be able to get done, but I think I ought to be able to get it finished off wrapped up and start posting it by a week today.

I solemnly swear. A week. I promise.

Hooray!

I have posted my yuletide story!

I have my usual worries about how the recipient Won't Like It now, but at least it is DONE. (3500 words. I hadn't thought I could get it to be that long.)

Oh how I hate archives which force you to rate stories according to the system used by US movie censors. I mean really.

Still. Yay for yuletide! Now I can look forward with a clear conscience to finding out what my yuletide treasure is... and to writing the next part of the Games story

(Er - part 1 of The Pieces is already written. I just had to. So, once part 2 is written, I can post part 1 right away...)

The Games - Part Six

This story is fanfic written in [info]poisontaster's Keptverse. Further explanation and links here, as well as Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four and Part Five. There is the beginnings of a cast list here.

Okay. *whew*.

Pay attention! Get down on your knees! )

This concludes the first section of this story. The second section, "The Players", should begin tomorrow or Monday: Part one is finished, I'll post it as soon as I've finished part two.

The Games - Part Five

This story is fanfic written in [info]poisontaster's Keptverse. Further explanation and links here, as well as Part One, Part Two, Part Three, and Part Four. There is the beginnings of a cast list here.

This is part 5 of a six-episode Arc 1: the closing episode of Arc 1 will be posted whenever I get the first episode of Arc 2, "The Players", written. *plotz* I think there's going to be four Arcs, and Arc 2 is going to be about the same length as Arc 1, but I don't have a clear picture yet of how many episodes it's going to take to get me through the plot of Arcs 3 and 4. Also I have disturbing thoughts about doing Nanowrimo this year.

where the hell is he going )

The Games - Part Four

This story is fanfic written in [info]poisontaster's Keptverse. Further explanation and links here, as well as Part One, Part Two, and Part Three. There is the beginnings of a cast list here.

By the way, [info]poisontaster has now definitely communicated that if it's not RPS, it's not really part of the Keptverse, so, well. I suggested to the author of the other FPS story (who tried to post a link on the Keptverse community on Livejournal) that she and I could start an AU Keptverse community for FPS which are fanficcing on the Keptverse (kind of meta on meta) but haven't heard back. Will let you know. Let me know if you're interested, if I am speaking to anyone: it's kind of pointless starting a community for a fandom of one.

All right, I want to start right there. )

I've never collected photos of characters/actors, so most of these are pretty crummy - just what I found on googlesearch. I'll add the others as we come to them...

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.

Go get him )
