#55: The Following
« on: July 24, 2014, 01:41:28 AM »
Still very much a WIP, so title and content are subject to change at my every slightest whim.  Let me know if anything seems off, dialogue/character-wise.  The beginning infodump is kinda cursory because I'm still not sure whether I even want to include it or not.

EDIT: I'm removing the chapters from here and linking to the Google Doc so that y'all can read it the way I wrote it.  To find chapters, just ctrl+F/cmd+F the word "chapter" followed by whatever number you're looking for.

EDIT 2: Adding a PDF version.  Download below.

EDIT 3: FINISHED!  Or at least, the first draft is in a fully continuous state as of now. 

YAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY

You may like the next chapter somewhat less, once I get it edited and posted.  Things get bad.   :P

Thanks!   :D

I'm a tiny bit stalled at the moment, because dream-like sequences are tricky to get right.   Should be smooth(er) sailing after that.

((Gah.  I have a hard time writing Marco.  Still not happy with this chapter, but whatever.  This is first draft, and I just want to get it out.))

This is great so far! I wonder what your take on The One is.  I hope Jake and Tobias eventually reconcile.  Also, I hope Ax can come back some how.  He's one of my favorites.  Update soon!  Have you thought about putting this up on fanfiction.net?

Gah, had issues posting this one.  Stupid formatting.

Never used fanfiction.net (and I've heard it causes issues with formatting in Animorphs fics), but I have been looking into alternatives that would allow easier editing.  I have a friend on dA who favors PDFs, so I might try that.  I dunno.

Took me two gosh darn years... 

Well, I guess that's a bar I've set now.  Maybe it's low enough for even me to beat.  :D
