cuckoo's egg, chapter fourteen
well this is boring, zzzz
tsukikoushi
This chapter is FULL OF LIES.

For one thing, it's a day or so late. Horrible, terrible, etc. For another, I got a bit over-captivated with wrapping up the loose ends from chapter 13, so I decided to spin those off into chapter 14 instead of ending the story here; Cuckoo's Egg will be fifteen chapters long, not fourteen, and thus this is not the end of the story, but rather just another knot of blather.

Hopefully next month will see the story done, unless I think of something else to wedge in. We shall see.

I WAS NEVER HERE, ninja cow

Wow, I got it out in time! I am amazed.

Anyway! Stuff happens for once! But not that kind of stuff. In case you were wondering.

One more chapter to go. Fingers crossed that I'll get it done on time.

cuckoo's egg, chapter twelve
that am dumb!, derr, I sense inbreeding
tsukikoushi
A day late--I'd blame the holiday, but in truth I just got confused and thought it was a day earlier than it actually was. My bad.

Anyway! Some bits of this may look familiar! Some bits may also look promising, and a sentence or two may look a little NSFW. Not very, though. Best not to get your hopes up. We're not that far along in the story.

Gosh, the chapters are getting enormous.

Chapter 13 is underway. It's possible that it may even be done on time. I suppose we'll see!

well I've got nothing to say to that, tongue-tied

Chapter 12 is mostly done. Somewhat close to done. Not entirely undone. Something like that. While I have a hectic month coming up, I do hold out some hope that I'll manage to scrape some words together in time for the July 5th posting date. If not, I'll post 12 when it's done, and 13 and 14 whenever I can.

As always, thanks for reading!

cuckoo's egg, chapter ten
whatever, whew!, siiiiigh
tsukikoushi
Longish chapter this time around! I don't like it quite as much as I liked chapter nine, but chapter ten does what's needed, more or less. And by 'does what's needed' I apparently mean 'runs around in introspective little circles'.

A quick 'state of the story' update:
- Chapter 11 is written and ready for June's update, and the next chapter is underway. I don't know if I'll have Chapter 12 ready to go by July 5th-ish, but I'll do my best to make that happen.
- That being said, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Cuckoo's Egg will be fourteen chapters long (barring unforeseen explosions of IDEA) and just knowing that fact gives me a bit more impetus to lady up and finish this monstrous thing.

I've always been fond of this particular chapter.

Happy April!

do you trust this cow?, big grin
tsukikoushi
All along I've been laughing to myself that Cuckoo's Egg might wind up being almost as long as The Morning Star, despite one being a 'story' and the other being a 'novel'. Turns out the joke is on me: complete, The Morning Star is 353kb of text, and Cuckoo's Egg is already sitting at 478kb, only three-quarters done.

Whoops.

Guess I can't really call it a 'story' any more, huh? I'm going to start calling them both 'novellas'. That's fair.

In other news, whining and blithering!Collapse )

As ever, thank you for sticking with me, and with Bran!

Because I'm so happy about the new Chapter (and because I have a terrible cold and nothing better to do) I decided to stop lurking and try to post something.

Back to this! Plugging onwards--I've still got a few chapters up my sleeve but my backlog is shrinking, and that's terrifying. MUST WORK HARDER. AIEE.

Since the release schedule for these chapters has dovetailed so neatly with the real calendar, I thought I'd go ahead and post the chapter concerning Christmas early, in time for the holidays. Seems appropriate to mark the occasion.

Chapter 7 will be posted in early February, back on the usual schedule. Happy holidays, and thank you for reading!
