Hey everyone, after some talking with my discord I decided to post my series to RoyalRoad as well. I'm doing them a bit differently there (mostly with no author's notes), but if you prefer to read there, then it's an option now. Here are the links if you want them:
So...I ended up doing a lot of "turning my brain off" writing and cranked out enough chapters of my third series that there's now enough to post here on SH! One chapter will be coming out every day until we reach chapter 10, at which point the schedule is a strict "when it comes out it comes out".
Hey everyone, I'm really sorry, but I won't be able to get any chapters out this week. My car finally breathed its last (it was well overdue for that, though, it's super old) and I've been having to deal with getting a new one, and I just...don't have it in me to get either The New Chimera or The Outlands done right now. Sorry again, and thanks for your understanding!
Alright I lied, this should be my last profile post for a hot minute. I have a new series up on Patreon that's strictly a side thing. It'll come to SH eventually, but not for a bit. Here's a public post with more info and a short synopsis: https://www.patreon.com/posts/50097590 And some tags so you can see if you'd be interested: Girls' Love, Gender Bender (Not the MC), Brainwashing (Mostly not the MC), Comedic Undertones, Evolution, Swarm/Hive/Whatever, Yandere, LitRPG
Sounds interesting. Is it still part of the same Multiverse as the other two series?
The description has me thinking of a Kerrigan like Swarm Queen as opposed to the Overmind (though neither of them is a major part of the reproductive cycle of the Zerg). I don't think I know a good comparison for people not at least passingly familiar with Starcraft.
So, I haven't fully pinned anything down yet, and don't really plan to for...probably a while, but the tentative idea I have is (minor spoilers for TNC):
Yes it's in the same multiverse, specifically it's in the universe of the Administrator who made Levi. The only reason he's letting the blatant wrecking of...everything happen is because he's an experimenter and he's got those planes separate from his others so he wants to see how it pans out.
Hey folks, just a heads-up: I've been called in to babysit my siblings on rather short notice, and between that, midterms, and the fact that I've spent most of my writing time getting the rewrite of The New Chimera finished (I've been averaging about 5 chapters a day now that I'm not rewriting them all from scratch, I've got ~20 left!), there won't be a chapter of The Outlands this week. It'd pushing it just a bit too much to get done, sorry.
Heya, I just had a quick question. I'm interested in reading your story "The New Chimera" but I understand that a rewrite is potentially coming out in a couple of months (by looking at comments and whatnot). Is the rewrite going to be an entirely different story with slight alterations from the original, or is it more just quality improvements/chapter cleanups? Asking because if it's the former, I think I'm better off just waiting a couple of months.
A good question. It's...a bit murky, to tell the truth. The end result is going to be (almost) the same, but the ride there is going to change a fair bit. The first 1/3-ish of the story was just especially weak. I tend to ramble long and profile comments have a character limit, so here's a pastebin with the details (technically spoilers but it's all non-specific) so you can decide for yourself: https://pastebin.com/uHpu9e4d
Update: Ended up having a bunch of motivation and finished the chapters I have left before I start doing less major editing and more scanning through and changing what needs to be changed. Bumping up my estimate from a month to...two weeks or less, I'm hoping!
Good question! Currently, I'm mostly done, there's probably three-four more chapters that have major rewriting to do, and then the rest of it needs a quick pass-over to account for changes I made in the rewrite, and then I'll begin the process of posting it here.
So, I'm tentatively saying two months from full completion. Could be more, will likely be less, hard to tell. The only potential hangup is school, but I don't foresee any issues from that front right now.
Hey folks, I've been pretty sick all week (most likely nothing serious, my roommate just got tested for Covid and he's clean, so probably just a cold then. I'm testing on Monday but I don't imagine I'll have it either) and, as such, haven't been able to get a chapter done. Sorry for the trouble, I'll definitely have one done next week!
Uh, hey guys, it's me again. I've decided I'm going to need to take a break this week; I just moved out into a new apartment yesterday and we've been having some teething troubles getting everything in working order. Furthermore, that's on top of school starting this week too. As a result, progress has been slow and I've been much more stressed than I would really like to be, and I just don't think I put out a chapter that's of a quality I'm happy with. Sorry!
The TL;DR is that after this arc The New Chimera is going on a sort of hiatus for a while, but I highly recommend reading the paste for more information because it's not as cut and dry as a simple hiatus.
