End of Part One [30 Nov 2005|11:29pm]

I've been thinking about it the last couple of days, and at first, what I was going to do was continue to write and post the story here. However, after brainstorming and outlining the remainder of the chapters, I realized that there isn't really that much left for me to write.

So, the new plan is, I'm going to post this final segment, and it'll be the end of "part one." I'm not going to leave it as a cliffhanger, or anything that really makes you question where they are in their relationship. Over the next two weeks I'm going to finish the story off, and begin posting the proper, edited chapters to queerasfandom. I'm just estimating, but if I post a chapter every few days, you guys will get the beginning of part to just before the Christmas holidays.

Okay, so that's it for Nanowrimo 2005. Thank you to everyone who commented/left me feedback along the way -- I appreciated every single one, even if I didn't reply. So unless I explode or something, I'll see you all back here for 2006!

References/etc. will be contained in the final final post, which I'll make public after this part.

And like always, enjoy!

I uh, can't believe it. Finished.

Thank you to everyone who reviewed each part as I posted it, honestly, the comments and feedback were part of what kept me writing at such a quick speed, especially after I slowed down after the first week. I read every single one, even though I didn't reply because of time constraint.

And for those who are wondering, I will continue to post the story here until it's finished. Once it's 100% done, I'll edit it to pieces and post it in queerasfandom. Hopefully, if you're interested, you'll reread it.

Okay. Here's the final part of Nanowrimo 2005.

I have become oddly addicted to a free copy of Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 that came from a box of cereal. This is not good for my writing health.

I can't believe I'm almost done with the 50,000 words -- even though the story is only just over half completed. How do I get myself into these things. Anyways, here's the next part. Like usual, you guys fucking rule for all your comments. I'll reply to them when I'm not suckering every spare moment into writing time, I promise.

Edit: Once again, forgot the translations.

I'm not going to ramble cause I want to write some more, but here it is - only 10000 left. And I forgot to add the translations to the last chapter, but those are there now in case you were wondering. Okay. Thank you for the feedback last time, here's another.

Shit, I totally meant to update this yesterday. I wanted to get to 40,000 tonight, but I'm way too tired. Expect more tomorrow, though! Thank you to everyone who's reviewed/replied -- seriously, I know I can't thank each and every one of you, since every spare second goes to writing, but I appreciate your comments like nothing else. So thank you for those, and enjoy this. I promise another update will come sooner.

Edit: I completely forgot to add the translations, so those are included now.

Man, I am sucking with this posting thing. I'm about to write a bit more before I go to bed, though, so I won't ramble. And, just to reinforce it -- this is unedited. 99% of it sucks, and will be tweaked/rewritten in most ways before it's reposted in queerasfandom... squint hard, and try not to notice.

Edit: If I mess up the italic tag again, I uh... hope I notice before an hour passes.

This is what I was going to do originally - update the fic as I wrote it. So better to start late than never, right? Anyway, here's the next part, I figured I'd post it before I go to work. If you haven't read the other thing I posted this morning, make sure you do that now, else this won't make sense. Okay. This also includes the very first flashback, gasp. Enjoy it.

This shouldn't even be counted as a real update, but I wrote this the other day and wanted to post it before I started on today's. I've been so busy I haven't been able to write as much as I want to, so I'm very glad I got myself ahead in those first few days. I'm kind of hesitant to post this next part because it's only a few pages long, and when I post the entire edited story in queerasfandom it'll probably end up as the final scene in a proper chapter, but alas. Here I go.

This is kind of half of tonight's update. The other part I still have to add a little bit more onto. I know I haven't updated the last two days, but I have been writing a little here and there. I'm glad I got the 10.000 on the first day, else I'd be way behind now. Anyways. Enjoy this, and like always, to everyone who leaves comments and feedback - you fucking rule.

EDIT: I lied, I added the part I was going to post later to the end of this part.

Ah, I finally got to my goal for today. I'm officially now forty one words over being halfway finished. I'm not going to ramble, so thank you again for your feedback on the last post, it made my night, and for now, here's the next twenty or so pages.

So this is around the time where I just think to myself, "you can still edit it, you can still edit it." I apolgize for the rougher parts of this section, but hey. That's what December's for, right? Also, I added an extra part at the end, the German/English translations for what words were used in the story. If you're not sure what something means, just scroll down, and if I missed one, just comment and let me know.

And I appreciate every comment/feedback I recieve to a ridiculous amount. When this is over and I'm not writing every spare second of the day, I plan to respond to every one. So thank you, again. Hope you enjoy this part.

5,000 more and I hit the halfway mark, thank god.

You guys are fucking fantastic. Seriously, you don't even realize how much your comments are inspiring me to write more. At first I wasn't so psyched at what I was writing, and I don't particuarly like some parts of the fic, but after writing the last half of this I'm a little happier with what has been happening. I'm excited about what comes next, which is probably good. Anyway. Enjoy it in all it's un-edited glory.

Okay, I've come to end at the word count that I wanted today, since it was my day off and I wanted to use that as an opportunity. Hope you all like it. I won't ramble any more as I'm sure once I start I won't be able to stop, so - enjoy.

First of all - holy shit. Thank you for all of your comments on the first post, they seriously surprised me, and also got me back into writing some more today. I'm just going to take a break and then try for at least another couple thousand words, because I know once the initial high wears off, it isn't going to be as easy as it is now to write.

Second, I forgot to clarify before the first post, but this is obviously set in Germany. I didn't write everyone speaking German, because obviously there are probably very few people who are reading this that would understand it, but the only people (so far) who are NOT speaking German, are Justin and the social worker. Brian obviously speaks both English and German, but only speaks English when talking to Justin or, again, the social worker. I just wanted to clear that up before it drove me crazy.

Okay. Enough time wasted on that. This is more character development, but I promise Justin will say something more soon. Enjoy!

Alright, just one little reminder - it's unedited. Don't be surprised if some sentences are only bordering coherancy. Enjoy.

Edit: I fucked up already. Haha I fixed the broken code that made the last half italic. Sorry about that.
