Putting it all together!

As I've mentioned before, I'll be putting Tai's Story into a single document for upload here - just in case anyone wants it as a single "novel."

I've been, naturally, going over the story again as I do this, hoping to catch whatever errors I've missed up to this point (and there are quite a few). Comparing the earlier chapters to the later ones is very embarrassing... it's very clear that there's been quite some time between then and now.

The simple fact is that much of TS is just not up to the standard I have today. Ugh.

You know, self-editing is the most masochistic activity ever to curse humanity.

"self-editing is the most masochistic activity ever to curse humanity"
soo true... I have just erased and rewritten this comment a couple times by now xD
I haven't read all of TS, but what I've read until now, I've really enjoyed.
I look forward to reading the complete version. =)

Well, made a few changes to the earlier chapters - like I said, they're just not good enough for me today. I'm almost ashamed to admit how long I've been writing Tai's Story. Hopefully the final, complete version won't be as embarrassing.

Oh, and don't worry! Your comment was perfectly comprehensible. =3

Well, for fan service, can you think about throwing up a tiny bit of what you have for SdY?  I've been patient for a long time.  Even if I feel like the only fan, it's some really awesome stuff....

As far as Tai's Story, I totally love everything, as you posted it.  Mistakes and all!

Don't worry about your standards....  the thoughts you put into it when thinking it up is what REALLY matters...

Well, I'd need to figure out what to put online of SdY. Much of the "unpublished" material is bits and pieces of unfinished scenes, some of them quite a bit further in the story than I have actually gotten up to: a practice I completely have foresworn.

That's basically the problem. I don't know what to do with SdY, or even what I want to do with it. Still are bits and pieces I'm proud of, and for a long time was looking forwards to doing a trio of unusual scenes in particular. I refuse to consider it "cancelled" but at this point the other novels have priority. TS is 99.9% finished and Astray isn't that far behind, so yeah.

Don't worry, I won't be completely wiping out and re-writing sections of Tai's Story or anything. It's just my final editing process, targeting any error or problem I see on the way - It should be done by now, but I have other hobbies and tend to be easily distracted.
If you enjoyed the versions of the chapters uploaded so far, you should enjoy what's coming next, because it's pretty much the same only with a few corrections, hopefully more mature narration and a little better foreshadowing. Because that was one major issue with the story.

I'm honored and even a little abashed that so many people loved the story in its original, imperfect forms. I have always prioritized the characters, and seeing people fall for them despite the poor narrative (especially earlier!) makes me a happy author! :3

Well, you should be a happy author.  If the story is loved, then that means the characters, plotline, etc are excellent (in my opinion).  

I'm looking forward to whatever you are willing to post, although I became attached to the characters in SdY far more than your other stories, so whenever you get to "fleshing out" more of that..  I'll work on being more patient...  =D
