Okay okay okay. I've had, well, frankly rather a lot of comments asking about Sick of Shadows. And these comments are awesome and really flattering, but also, um, kind of stressful. Because I'd like to write because I want to, not because others want me to, and recently I haven't wanted to work on this as much as I've been completely consumed by Chuck Writes, this HP fic I'm writing, and this awesome HP fic I'm beta'ing. I could make myself work on Sick of Shadows, but that feels less fun than well, the intentions with which I started it.

So, I was busy being stressed out about this, because I do have large portions of the next chapter of SOS done, but it's not done done, and I want it to be the fic I want. Then I realized: part of what I like about this style of posting and fic writing is getting to see authors' processes, watching them talk through ideas and develop something through all the steps. Now, I know some people have strong opinions about this: they think that fanfics should be finished products, like any other story, fully formed. I totally respect this opinion and think it's completely valid; I just don't happen to agree.

So, what I decided to do was show you what was happening with the fic—by which I mean, give you lots and lots of porn, only pieces of which will appear in the final product. Some of you would be satisfied because you're getting porn. Some of you will be satisfied because it's sort of Sick of Shadows, even though it's not. Some of you will be satisfied because you're like me, and enjoy authors' processes. Those of you who are not satisfied, I apologize! There are plenty of other things to read. Go read them.

Oh, I should add, if you're interested in Victorian porn, it probably isn't necessary to have read the rest of this fic to read this.Author's Note, sort of, plus Victorian porn. Lots of it. Like, a whole lot, because there are all those CLOTHES. )
