Been Thinking

With the gutwrenching double punch of loosing two Video Hosting Websites in succession (ZippCast, then Vid.Me), and then facing the possibility that I might never be able to get back to filming entirely given some concerning computer issues I’ve had recently, I’ve been left with the dilemma of a choice.

Do I:

  • A: Leave Dovah’s Mind to fade away and never be finished?
  • B: Return to Youtube and all the frustrating politics there?
  • C: End the Video Series at Disk 2’s end, and finish the story off as a Text Based Story?

Now, I’ve come to the decision to lean heavily into the later category, considering the push of writing I’ve been doing over on AO3 for a bit of stress relief. (A Crossover story between Homestuck and Stargate, heh!)

I’m nearing the end of an Arc there, and I think, with some off and on alternating, I could probably pull off delivering the final story beats for Dovah’s Mind, and the other crossover elements with Callie’s story, and some of the ESO story fragments. Keep your eyes peeled for that, sometime soonish.

Meanwhile, what about MYSTRYAL?  Book 6 has about two more updates left in it before it wraps up, and at that point, I’m going to be sort of leaving the web-novel version hanging for a bit. As I finish off the Dovah’s Mind stuff, and get some other gears in alignment story wise, I’ll be finally getting those six novels rewritten for proper publishing.

IDK who even still follows this blog at this point, but if you’re still here and reading, then thanks for sticking around and being so patient.

Upd8s on Things

Gosh has it been a busy couple of months! >_> Short post because things are taking time.

Mystryal Book 1 finished uploading two weeks ago, and Book 2 just posted its second batch of updates today. There have been a few site updates to the Mystryal Blog in the mean time as well! Check them out. More consistently, I’ll be updating my progress on Tumblr via the Mystryal Tag than I have been here. Sorry. Will try to stop that and post here more often!

Dovah’s Mind is in the process of reuploading to, we’re now starting into Disk 2 of that.

XWAU02 Rewrite final stretch

Since we have 12 chapters remaining, Starting Monday the schedule will be: 2 X0VA chapters a week for 6 Weeks. Probably Tuesdays and Thursdays as the upload day of choice.

And then that’ll be that. The rewrite will be FINISHED. 0_0 There’ll still be a few bits of Vamola! to tweak into alignment, but otherwise, rewrite work on fanfiction related stuff will be done! That means you’ll start to see some new stuff flow through! Wheeee….

EDIT: Oh, also, I’m considering uploading the old Calliope journals from Entering Skyrim onto AO3, just for the sake of it. It’s years old content by now, but it’s also deserving a final end… it’s kinda been dangling for a little while, so… yeah. New stuff! Ish.
