A few announcements (Astray/SdY)!

Hello, folks!

Just wanted to point out that I am still alive and still writing. Astray's final chapter is sitting at about 16,000 words, and I'm still working on it. I have a few things to say about it though.

First of all, this story means a lot to me. It isn't perfect, but it means a shitload to me, and I'm not just writing it for myself, either. The final chapter is going to be big, and I'm working on it as fast as I can. At the moment, I do not have much in my life to distract me, so I'm writing as much as possible. That is good, because...

Second. I don't know for a fact if this is going to happen, but: in roughly 2 months time, I might find myself indisposed for 3 months or more.
It might not happen at all, but it does mean that I have to finish the most important story I've ever written with this time-limit on my head, other things to do in those 2 months, and a lot of pressure.
Don't ask what it is, because it might not happen. I'll hopefully know pretty soon.

Thirdly, I've gotta be honest about something here.
Some of you are aware I have a third major story that (hilariously) is still online on other websites. I've already explained one reason why I don't maintain it at the moment on SoFurry and InkBunny. Basically, it doesn't reflect my current abilities as an author - Tai's Story doesn't either, but it is still much more recent and I made the effort to upgrade the earlier chapters. "SdY" hasn't gone through that process, so I basically think it's kinda crap.

But there's another reason, I admit. To be blunt about it, I don't want to keep writing about child abuse. With Nick from Astray, I'm trying to get into the mind of a child who experienced it long ago. Jeremy from SdY is even more disturbing to write.

I still flick through it occasionally, so I don't think I'm ready to abandon it yet, but if I'm going to make myself write about these sorts of things, I'm going to take it one story at a time, I think.

I just felt that I owed fans of that story, the whole four or five of ya, the truth about it.

I recall seeing SdY back on your older accounts. I can imagine how hard it must be to write something even more disturbing that what happens in Astray. :s

I didn't even REALIZE that there was another major story, I'll have to check out "SdY".  But I must say that I am somewhat unnerved by your usage of the word "indisposed"....has something gone awry? Or are you simply taking a break? I'll understand if for one reason or another you are disinclined to answer. All the same, I wish you the best.

Doubt he'll want me commenting on it but it's nothing 'serious,' he's not in trouble at least, just thinking of taking the next step in his life.  *Nods*

I doubt it'll be anything less than 50-60k words.  But I do have to agree, challenge to read it all in one sittin' is totally accepted.

You know, I miss 'SdY' but I'm not really interested in reading more quite yet.  Little Nick is going through enough for me right now.  *Snugs a Nick*  

As a side note: Tai's Story may not reflect your "current" abilities as a writer since you've grown and matured quite a bit since you started it all those years ago.  (Still the first furry story I fell in love with, always will be.)  But it's still a great piece of work and you shouldn't look down upon it as anything less than greatness.

Holy shit your alive! That's Fucking amazing. And man you work fast. I can't believe you already are that far. Also I didn't know there was another story. Where can I find sdy and what's the plot.

I'd say check out cubcentral.  I think he still has it up there.  Basically, it's a bunch of cubs that like being tortured... but with a bit of yiff added to it.  It's a good read as long as you don't mind the little darker section.

Ya I think I'll pass. I was thinking it was something simular to astray or tais story. Doesn't sound like something I want to read at all. No offense Kitsune or anyone else.

Daaaamn, Mister Eclipse reaaaally misrepresented it there. *blinks* That's not what the story is about.
It probably ISN'T your cup of tea, but it's not... quite the way he just made it out to be.

Here's a super-fast rundown. It's set in an alternative future where, yes, there's a BDSM "dungeon" that specifically caters to furry kits. It is fairly heavy on the naughty stuff, but by "darker section" Eclipse was not referring to torture-porn or anything. I can only think of one scene that approaches that sort of thing (but still falls short by a LONG shot), most of it is like what happens in Tai's Story.
The darker section is the actual plot. One of the boys that goes to the place is abused by his mother.

The story follows the owner of the dungeon, the three sons of the abusive mother, and three other kids who befriend them, but have their own troubles and trials. Like I said, might not be your cup of tea, but it's not about a bunch of cubs that like being tortured. ONE does, because of what his mother does to him.

((It's an old story, kind of silly. But I did want to step in here and clarify what AE said.))

Ok that's good to know. And I don't think it is for me but at least now I know it actually has a plot and it's not just about kids willingly being tortured
