God damn, [info]daggomus_prime has gone and done it AGAIN. She surprised me this morning with the second piece of artwork for When Play Turns Bitter, and even though I knew what was coming, I didn't know what was coming, yaknowwhatimean? Anyway, nothing I say here will do it or my appreciation justice, so just take a look-see for yerself.

Hey y'all,

Just a quick note to confirm that I am indeed still working on When Play Turns Bitter. No real excuse for the hiatus this time except that I've been trying to concentrate on
[info]spn_j2_bigbang on account of the looming draft deadline, as well as the side projects I've been doing with [info]fossarian, but I've got ~3000 words of the new chapter hammered out so far. With any luck it'll get posted soon, so - worry not!

I said I wouldn't leave you hanging, and a promise is a promise. So... promise. /o\
For a little while now I've been pestering [livejournal.com profile] fossarian about the idea of adapting When Play Turns Bitter into an actual novel, and thought I'd consult with my lovely flisties about the relative insanity of this latest brainwave.

Those interested in my idea, carry on. )

SUMMARY: “You’re happy with your world/ But there is something small in the back of your head/ Your concerns are still free/ You fall into the trap/ Without knowing what you want/ And there’s nothing left but a foolish idea/ Everything goes back into place.” Remember that play turns sour when playing with a fire; but Dean is as tired of pretending like his life hasn’t begun, as he is waiting for Castiel to notice.More, after the cut! )

So... Just finished Chapter Twelve of When Play Turns Bitter. With the beta now, post soon hopefully.

11, 078 words, WHAT THE HELL.

I am truly all written-out for the day, so I'll leave you with some Daniel Faraday to describe my current state.

So, this is sort of apropos of nothing, but I wanted to make a post regarding When Play Turns Bitter. I know I have been awful about updating - I probably spoiled everyone with the once-a-week thing, heh - but I am still working on Chapter Twelve, albeit slowly. Ironically, it's pretty much all finished except for that one damn chapter (hell, even the chapter is almost done - I have over 7000 words of it written, and there's just this wee hump at the end that's giving me grief), and I have no other reason for stalling than, well... it's sad. And I've had a lot of bad news lately in my personal circle, including my best friend having cancer, so it's been a) difficult to concentrate on something so emotionally wrenching and b) beneficial to my mood to take a break with writing happy things. We like happy things, right?

Anyway, I know it's only been a few weeks, but that's the story with my WIP. I will finish, I promise, and thanks so much to the regular readers for being so patient and supportive of the process. I've been having an overactive Catholic guilt thing happening with how long I've been keeping you waiting, especially after I established the expectation of weekly updates, but rest assured I haven't given up. I just need to get my shit together a bit more before I can do it justice, since I can't justify posting something that feels sloppy or rushed, just for the sake of hitting the finish line a bit faster.

So, yeah. Sorry, I guess? It'll be a little while longer, but don't give up on me yet. And while it might not be Kurt, my [livejournal.com profile] d_hearts_c entry is due this week, and after [livejournal.com profile] fossarian and [livejournal.com profile] tracy_loo_who helped me pretty it up real nice, I'm really excited to post it. There is lots of AU cuteness and food porn. :)

In the meantime, you should go listen to the new Radiohead album, okay? It'll make everything better.
I have to do some reccing that may seem, inadvertently, like self-reccing, but trust me, I only have eyes for [info]daggomus_prime.

Her Awesomeness and I have been in discussion about artwork for When Play Turns Bitter over the past little while, and last night the first piece got posted. The scene depicts Dean and Kurt's first meeting at the bar, and... whoa. I had to get up at 5am just to go look at it, because I was that excited, and now I just can't stop staring at it for all its awesomeness. This is the best feeling ever, because I am a) way overattached to this story and b) way overattached to my OMC, but I couldn't have translated this scene more perfectly if I were an artist myself, she just nailed it so hard.

So, gushing aside (though there'll probably be more), please go check out the artwork. And then read the fic. If you want. (XD) But mostly go look at the artwork.

Love a duck, I just finished writing Chapter 10 of When Play Turns Bitter after nearly two weeks of obsessing/struggling with it, harassing [info]sansday, [info]cautionzombies, [info]bauble, and [info]shane_mayhem in one form or another for help (ah, the internet - for when you need to inflict yourself upon your friends and betas in as many ways as possible), and almost feeling like it might not get done at all.

In short:



Just felt the need to share. I was literally in tears writing it and now I think I have a date with some ice cream.
