The Games: The Cripple

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).

This one-off story, like "The Network", takes place before the first part of "The Games" - about 14 years before - but thematically should be read between "The Gambler" and "The Pieces".

In The Mouth Of The Wolf: Part 6

It's 1.35 in the morning, my time, though in Montreal (where I am right now) it's 8:35 in the evening. I am beyond exhausted, but I'm posting, because I am too tired to think of a good reason for breaking my word. (Written in Edinburgh, revised transAtlantic, revisions reviewed in Shoshanna's living room, posted via her Internet.)

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), The Gambler (seven parts), The Pieces (seven parts), and End-Game (5 parts).

There are parts one two, three, four, and five of "In the Mouth of the Wolf", the sixth and final section of this story.

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

The Network

I linked to this story by [info]darkrose, My Sight Grows Stronger, in the introductory notes to The Games. Partly because this really impressed me, and partly because I felt it was a good introductory stand-alone piece to read about how the Keptverse works. This story is my effort to do something similiar, and was inspired by a discussion that I had with [info]darkrose here.

In summary: the Keptverse is set in an America in which debt slavery exists. In the real Keptverse (which is mostly on livejournal), the stories are all RPF. What I am writing here is fanfic on the Keptverse: fictional characters living in the universe of [info]poisontaster's creation.
