While I’m trying to come up with new stuff to put on this site, I have got a few things already here that people might be interested in. Firstly, the Short Pieces section. I’ve got a few short stories and such there, which might be worth the read if you have both time and patience. 🙂 It’s probably a bit weird recommending things, when I wrote them, but my personal favourites are “Untitled” and “An Undiscovered Paradise”.
On a side note, I’ve now uploaded both Figment and Whirlwind and they’re also available to read in this section. They’re there, not because they are amazing, awe-inspiring reads (they aren’t), but because I don’t want to lose them completely with the TS2 site being on its last legs. [Again EA: give us a progress update already or just let us know that you’re not going to fix it, if that’s the case. Pretending that the site and the TS2 community don’t exist isn’t doing anything for your standing amongst the franchise’s fans.]
Finally, a little news (not about the story that must not be named – but hopefully I’ll get going on that soon). Story fans will have to settle for my short stories, but legacy fans might be interested. 😀 Does anyone remember The Belle Metamorphosis? I got as far as the eleventh chapter (which was really the thirteenth, but I digress), where the third generation was heading to college. Anyway, with the site down indefinitely :P, I’ve decided to boot up my second (actually, my first) WordPress blog, which has been lying dormant and in private mode for the last year or so while this one hogged the limelight.
Now I had thought I’d lost all my old screenshots when the family desktop threw a wobbly and deleted them on me. Turns out, yes, they’re gone off the computer… but at some stage I’d backed them up on an old SD card, which I just found this morning. It means that I can do for TBM what I’ve done for Figment and Whirlwind – host the chapters externally on WordPress, so they can be read even with the Exchange being down.
And that’s the plan, really. I’ll be gradually be uploading chapters there, as well as doing up that site (one of the default themes will have to do for the moment). So if you haven’t read my somewhat warped Prettacy (and you’re into reading legacies), keep an eye out for the chapters as I upload them. It shouldn’t take me heaps of time (considering everything’s already written/played/done basically), but it does take a while to upload all the pictures (I host them on Photobucket, just out of interest) and format the chapter pages. Plus, we all know that me and Procrastination are married and expecting our first child, so what shouldn’t take a massive amount of time might be a while in the coming.
Other than that… happy… belated… Arthur’s Day? 😛
