So, I actually did take that break - really needed it. But it's over, now! I just finished another chapter - a smutty one, at that. It's over 10,000 words long (making it the longest chapter so far) and it'll be released to the public on 2/26/2021
That means there will be chapters on 2/18, 2/20, and 2/26 - though feel free to join my Patreon if you want to read them all now. <3
I love it when Devilla delivers lines like "You haven't seen the last of me," but she actually just means that she likes you and you'll see her again. It's just. Very amusing to me. Like. "Yes, good, you drama queen."
So the good news is that I can absolutely promise a chapter on the 18th when it migrates off Patreon - I just finished it. The bad news is I'm not sure that I'll be able to post much of anything between now and the 18th. ;;
Gonna start working on that backlog... Probably tomorrow? For tonight, gonna relax a bit and maybe even write some for one of the games I'm making.
I sincerely love it when Village Girl B decides not only that she will have a name, but that she is going to steal someone else's role in the plot. I mean, I do. It's honestly wonderful when the script comes alive and surprises me, just because characters are doing what they want to do.
...That doesn't stop it from being a "Throw your hands up and sigh" moment, though, when I realize that I need to rewrite around them.
....Well, I'm back to writing more Demon Queened. I've spent the last few weeks trying desperately to make myself write any of the other things I owe my patrons, but it seems I really can't force these things. For two and a half weeks, I barely manage any content. Then I start on Demon Queened again and bam - content.
Even still, the original storyline of Lucy either killing or enslaving Devilla could be interpreted as something along the lines of "If I can't have you, no one will". Considering all the dialogue that Jacob was skipping through, it seems reasonable that he might have missed Lucy developing an obsession towards Devilla.
It's certainly a valid interpretation! I don't want to spoil the direction I intend to go - beyond what's already in spoilers above - but even beyond that, readers are encouraged to look at things their own way~
