Niki Frost is an amazing artist.
First off, the traditional Cthulhu-themed Christmas Carol!
As for updates to the fanfic, I’m afraid I have some bad news.
No, not I’m not quitting.
But my team at work is in a death-march of patches for our client, and I am pretty exhausted and very unlikely to get anything out before the New Year. I *might* get out an STG report tomorrow, but we’re having to work today and tomorrow so no promises.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season (regardless of your religion or lack thereof) and that you please remember those less fortunate than you and donate something to a charity that isn’t full of shit.
I’m unfortunately traveling on business, and in an area that’s from the 1950’s or fucking something because internet is beyond shitty.
Aside from that, I’ll be back on Friday, but Monday morning I’m going to be in court due to some family complications. I haven’t had a chance to do anything with the fic, but (so far) my health is stable and I should have a chance to work on it when I get back.
There’s no telling what the Editing Gang or the Discord Group have gotten up to in my absence. If another crackfic chapter is produced I cannot be held accountable.
Here you go:
In case you didn’t know, the Editing Gang has slowly and carefully been
helping me fix my abuse of punctuation and eliminate derp assisting me in rewriting the original OSABC.
We’re up to chapter 38 now (32: Shepard and Liara). There is a thread on the forums that will usually cover any major structural changes.
TWCD still being worked on by the Editing Gang as well, with a planned ETA of late Sunday evening for publication. The chapter after that will probably be out before the heat death of the universe.
ETA to publication is probably sometime this weekend.
In the past forty eight hours I have had a staggering four thousand DDOS and SQL injection attack attempts on this site from IPs resolving to the Ukraine and the Russian Federation, specifically wide attack ranges in Kiev, Moscow and Donetska (?)
If any of the readers of this site are from the above countries, please reply here or (if you are not a registered reader) reply to firstname.lastname@example.org. I need to see how many of my legit readers are from the affected sites before I decide how to deal with this mess.
While I haven’t updated the main story yet, I do have a pair of new STG files up : Trellani and the Illusive Man.
More updates to come in the near future.
I rarely recommend stories unless they are really good.
This series is really good.
The section of the XCOM files in the internet is hilarious.
