Welp, we’ve got one of the stories edited and ready to go, and I’m working to finish editing the second so we can pop them both in the poll the next time around! We’ll see who wants to see what half of the story 😉
Aww, thanks so much! It’s really been a ton of fun creating and building up the universe we have rolling over here.
Sorry about the mix up with the asks, it happens to the best of us.
We’re not sure quite when the story will be posting, we still have to edit the first one, and then we let everyone vote in the stories to keep things fresh!
Stan has certainly graduated from brief side character to full fledged main character in the stories, much like Jacob, so expect to see him cropping up often! He and Dean have some of the most entertaining parts together in BC, and Sherlock’s been a bit of pout at how the little red wolf snuck his way in.
Direct from the FAQ:
When does (insert story) start posting?
We’re not sure when each story goes up, we only have a timeline for the days stuff will post. To prevent any stories from gaining favoritism over others, we started running a poll. During the last week or two of a story, there will be a poll with (2) to (6) options offered, and the winner will be the story that starts next!
Keep in mind that the stories that appear in the poll will be fully written/edited and beta’d by our wonderful beta readers, any stories that are incomplete in any fashion will not be included.
The poll is run through SurveyMonkey, and each person gets only (1) vote! Duplicate votes WILL BE REMOVED.
That depends on how work goes, and currently things haven’t changed since when we switched over to two! Two of the main writers have full time jobs and lives outside of the stories, the third writer goes to school full time. We will continue to write and do what we can, but posting chapters is time consuming and done between other things.
It won’t be posted quiet yet, but we are definitely working on editing it right now! :3
To decide the next story that posts (since there’s a bunch of them waiting), we run a poll near the end of the current story. Whatever gets voted in gets posted. BC can’t be put in the poll just yet because we haven’t edited it or had one of our beta readers check it out, but you can be assured we’re as excited as everyone else to post it! The crossover fanfiction is a ride from start to finish!
Alright, I shoulda known it’s been too long since this question came up. Time to clear a few things in the air again.
First off, the other AUs are not to be confused with ‘side projects.’ I might consider a prompt a side project, or these asks. But the AUs are fully fledged stories that we put a lot of time and effort into and I will not accept them being sidelined.
For example, BA is at its tenth story.
We are currently writing the sixth part of BL with plans for plenty more.
These stories are actually going to be longer than the majority of stories in BA, since I have fantastic support and a great writing partner now. The ideas continue to flow and haven’t stopped.
On the subject of BA, since this one is a little more tender for myself.
During the fall, I had a falling out with my editor. I don’t like to spread anything, so the full story won’t be told. It boils down to the fact that they wanted to tell me what to write for stories I had already envisioned and they helped find a monster to fit the part. When they started to poke and prod for information on what I was writing constantly, not to mention wanting to tell me what to write, I had to tell them to stop, and later broke things off completely from what was becoming a toxic friendship.
Because of this, I hit the dreaded wall of writer’s block.
I’ve since recovered (mostly) from it, but BA is not being written as fast anymore. So though I do continue on with my planned storyline, I will not be able to support a chapter a week.
Also, I work a high-stress, full time job. Having more than one story posting at a time was a drain for me. Which is why after LoS is complete, we will not be switching back. The entire point of me switching to one story at a time was to reduce the amount of stress I have at home while I’m doing what I love. Don’t expect this to change.
The poll goes up tomorrow, so know that the story that is voted in will be what is posting next. Choose wisely, and know that many weeks of love and work went into them, just like for BA!
—Also, if anyone knocks @neonthewrite‘s efforts for these stories, please remember that she puts just as much work into them as I do, and her characters were invited in by yours truly.
Doing two stories at a time is actually pretty exhausting, especially with work in the way during the week. And the first option has the exact same number of story updates a week, not to mention you’ll get to discover what’s up with the AU’s.
Plus, it gives me time to actually write the next BA story, which is harder than it sounds because of certain things that happened during the fall.
So the option to post BA along with one of the AU’s is in the lead for the most popular choice, but I’m not sure if I’ll end up going with that. It would actually be easier to have one story posting
at a time, that way it’s easier to organize uploads and notes. Doing two at once is actually more draining than I thought it would be. I’ll have to think on it more, but at the very least, three updates a week will be guaranteed.
Drop an ask if you have any thoughts!
