I was only gone tuesday and wednesday, and did post stuff on thursday and friday. I didn't post anything on the weekend, but haven't been doing that for several weeks now -- did you just notice now?

Next chapter is going up now...

No, I had noticed that you haven't been posting on the weekends, I just needed my fix, and work was really dragging today. I don't mean to come across as a punk, but this story's really good! :twisted:

I'm glad you're still enjoying it


Depending when i get home from work, I can't always get it posted during the day, but I usually try to get it up by 5:00pm (central time) - if it's not up by then, it means i'm either busy, or not at home, so you'll just have to wait :)

Happy Holidays!

Post by Fnork » Tue Dec 23, 2003 10:47 pm

In the spirit of the Holidays, you're all going to get a big Christmas bonus!


I posted the next chapter early, and tomorrow night (Wed. the 24th), sometime between 11pm and midnight (central time) i will be posting the entire next scene, rather than just the next chapter.



Also note that there will not be any updates for a few days following that, due to the fact that I probably won't be around to post any.

Fnork, I need you to get a hold of me over ICQ this week. There are some important aspects of the story I want to discuss with you and the time I have to write it.

Happy New Year!

Post by Fnork » Wed Dec 31, 2003 10:41 pm

Bonus time again!

In celebration of the new year, I've posted up the next entire scene again for your enjoyment.



Also note, I will be out of state for most of next week with little to no computer access, so there will be no updates until Jan 12th.

I'm back now, so regular postings will resume. We're rapidly approaching the end now, so it should be pretty fast-paced from here on out.

enjoy.

Whoa...deja vu, or something to that effect. I just read chapter 69 twice. I like it, but I thought I was losing my mind for a second there. I must need a nap...


(hehehe, he said 69)

Here's the (almost) final tally, not counting the Epilogue which we're still working on:

88 Chapters
175 Pages (MS Word, size 12 font, single spaced)
578 KB (.doc file)



Just for comparison, the old joint story from the GUN board (now called "High Stakes) was around 65 pages in size 12 font. The chapters weren't numbered, but I doubt it even comes close.

Here are the final stats, according to the Word Count tool in MS Word:

181 -- Pages
89,921 -- Words
407,456 -- Characters(no spaces)
497,964 -- Characters(with spaces)
2,160 -- Paragraphs
9,770 -- Lines


But don't worry, we aren't done yet -- that's just the theatrical release. The DVD version will have all sorts of extras :)
