This Means War
An e-mail from Tim Joy, the author of This Means War:

Has been abandoned...

I jest ;)

Seriously, as of 6pm (GMT) on the 10th of December, 2006, This Means War 10 has been completed. Clocking in at 255 pages (not including Mmail signatures) or 71,000 words, this is the longest single chapter I've ever written, and has taken over 2 months to do.

It has close to 200 Mmails, and draws to a close every plot point that the previous chapters had opened.

Of course, some people will not like it - it's not as funny as chapters 1-8, but then, I'm not the same person I was when I was first writing this story, and this needed to be more serious.

I'm thinking of calling the chapter "Dragons, Werewolves and Goblins, Oh My".

I'm going to split it into smaller chunks and post them, because really, this is a completely ridiculous size for a chapter, and it isn't fair to my betas.

The betaing itself is no doubt going to take a while, so don't expect it anytime soon - just know that they will be working as hard as they can to get this story to you, in the pristine state you desire, as soon as is possible. Before they even get it, I want to take a day or so away from it and reread it to check I've not missed anything.

So, yay, it's been completed. Here's to hoping the people doing beta won't take too long.

dude! when you post something like this, link to the story :D I'm a lazy bum and don't want to have to whip out google... haha... I'm excited about this... So is the last chapter numbered 9?

The most recent released chapter is chapter 9... chapter 10 (which is undergoing beta now/soon, will be the last chapter.)

(It's a Harry Potter fanfic thou... I didn't know you were into Harry Potter..? Or rather, I suppose I should say I didn't think most people on my friends list read Harry Potter fanfiction, so I didn't bother posting a link~)

haha, when you last posted your links to the two, I read them both, it really frustrated me that chapter 10 was missing. I guess I don't actively search out fanfic but, I definitely liked what you linked... and I remember thinking to myself that I didn't even need to bookmark since you would post a link when chapter 10 was complete. haha

Heh, ok. Yeah, I'll post when chapter 10 finally gets released. (It's been 3 years since chapter 9 was first published, ya know~ Be glad you didn't find out about the story then :D)
