Delays in “And Then There Were None”

Since some of you have been asking …right now, the next chapter is still in review by my co-author.

Nothing in ATTWN goes out until he has a chance to tell me why it sucks. So far, nine times out of ten the shitfuckery I had written before was nothing compared to how good it was after his input.

I will be updating the Cerberus Files : Aliens, the Cerberus Files : Humanity and maybe Lions and Blue and Silver later on today or definitely by Tuesday. Right now, ETA on the next chapter of ATTWN is Tuesday – Wednesday — Progman has a lot of shit on his plate more important than fanfiction.

 

New Content to Older Works

I’ll be doing the following:

  • Slowly re-writing several chapters to provide more details in OSABC including “Wrex”, “Liara”, and “Cole”.
  • A series of interviews and short stories in the Biotic Encyclopedia with various biotics from various races
  • Cleaning up “The Best Father” a bit, to make it easier to read.
  • Going over some unclear things in the Cerberus Files: Aliens in regards to asari.

This won’t all get done at once or even quickly, but it will be happening as I find the time and energy to do it.

Some redesigns

I’ve cleaned up the menus to properly organize my various works. I’ll also be putting up download links to the full (not broken up by chapter) versions here soon.

I plan to get more art done (the Kazan needs a painting, so do my new OC’s and Liara in an Alliance Uniform.) I also plan to do a series on how I’ve developed the series, and the highlight some conversations in PM between myself and Progman that go over some of the subtle nature of OSABC.

I’ll also be putting up some ideas about the batarians and would appreciate feedback on those.

Some moar updates

Updates to both Cerberus Files.

The turian sections are taking longer than expected, simply because when I fix one potential problem or issue, three more pop up. Once I get past the history and culture part, the rest is downhill, though. The military section will be fun to write.

Not sure if I should do elcor, volus, or hanar after the turians. Or batarians. I’ll put that as a poll, I think.

The Holidays approach…

Reposting from what was chapter 112….fucking nazi FFNet…

In the insurance industry, this is open-enrollment season, where people have to get their coverage for the year finalized. That means from now until New Years will be utterly crazy. I’m not sure how much updating will get done between here and there, aside from the next STG Investigative Report which will come out Christmas Eve as a present to my readers.

There will probably be one update to the Cerberus Files: Humanity and maybe one to the Cerberus Files : Aliens for the Turian intro. Not sure yet. OSABC will probably not see an update until after Christmas.

So, since I’m wasting an entire chapter on an author’s note, I’d like to take time to give thanks to the people who gave me the inspiration to write this much. Without them I would have stopped writing this train-wreck a long time ago. All have encouraged me to continue this effort through messages, PM’s, and ideas. Especially after the loss of my job and my mother’s illness, as well as certain people who dislike AU’s, your words were very important to me.

I appreciate EACH and EVERY review I get, so please, if your name isn’t on this list don’t be offended, it just means I haven’t used an idea you’ve given me.


Above all else, my personal heroes:

Jay8008 ,who says I inspired him to write, good god

Setrus, the Maestro of settings, and who changed my opinion on Tali

Melaradark, which started me thinking about a ‘dark’ Shepard in the first place.


Progman (should get a co-authors credit at this point)

Michael1110 (without which neither this story nor the documentation would have been finished)

SherryE (One of my oldest fans. Totally getting a cameo somewhere)

nimiraj12 and Sollus (The official fan-girls of the Premiseverse. I accept no others!)

Hewhoislost (You simply MUST read Two to Tango)

S058 (who left much encouragement)
NarwhalWarlord (Still not on your favorite author’s list , I see :/ )

Yoholic (is Admiral Yonis Chu!)

wyval

AlexN7 (says the nicest things!)

NonSolus (always interesting questions)

AllisterH

littlesquiggle

rjohanek (Army lifer, mad respect)

metaladdict

sepoveda

Shigan (reviews are always insightful :D)

Octoberskys (Navy for LIFE)

Seven Seven

RED78910

KeithFraser (If you go in for Code Geass, btw, an EXCELLENT author)

RWBYWolf

NPC200

GalacticAlien

Coltsbro

Druzhnik (Very interesting works)

And of course,my muses, Owelpost, Wordrkrush, and Bebus.


As for OSABC…

There will be two or three chapters prior to Ilos, then Ilos takes up at least two. The fight at the Citadel is likely to be five or six chapters long, the aftermath two or three. Then there is the post-story and Bring Down the Sky (which is utterly changed), culminating in an epilogue.

If all goes well, OSABC II: Downfell (may change that title, ideas are welcome) should see revision outlining completed by late January and the prologue chapters as early as February. Estimated length is 140 plus chapters clocking in at around around 800,000 words.

The Cerberus Files will be worked on as I get research done (I’m about a quarter of the way through the turian research. Studying birds, Roman military stances, stoicism, Romanian and Balinese history, postmodern super-flat art, and the effects of cosmic radiation on amino acid chains…it may be a while).

The next two works will come out around May/June 2014. I will also (finally) update the Reaper doc (Fear Unrelenting, Seen Darkly) after ME 1 is complete.
