Good News, Bad News, and Updates

December of 2018 turned out to be absolutely terrible. I got sick twice–the first time with the flu, which knocked me on my rear for a week despite having had a flu shot earlier this year. Sadly, this can happen, not only because I have been blessed with the wonderful gift of Diabetes melitus, but because vaccinations only cover the strain expected to spread the most, and well, viruses love to mutate like mad. But the worst part is, after a week of feeling well, I managed to catch a cold that quickly turned into a sinus infection and then into what I suspect is pneumonia–another gift from Diabetes–that I am still not completely recovered from. Said cold/sinus infection/major sickness hit its peak a week in, then slowly subsided for the next week, and is still subsiding. As of now, I can move around the house, but stepping in front of an open door or window is pretty much an invitation to a major coughing fit.

Fun on a bun, right?

November wasn’t much better, as despite not being sick I had some major problems with mania throughout the month. This led to a pervasive lack of sleep (likely further leading to a bad December) and our first real bit of bad news: The return of The Revelation, and rehashing of Part I, has suffered a major delay. Most of Chapter I has been rewritten, but otherwise? Nothing. Either too tired, too manic (which really affects writing quality) or too sick. Ugh. The lack of writing will likely continue for a few more weeks too, as other (more minor but no less distracting) health issues have popped up since all of this.

So what’s the good news? Well, I haven’t given up on the site, and before the now-undetermined-return of The Revelation, the site will have some very nice new pages of background material. You know, world building stuff. This stuff will only be the tip of the iceberg, too–almost all of it will involve The Revelation only, and none of it will be spoilers. You’ll get to know what’s in the footlockers Carlton brought. You’ll find out a lot more about the history of Hybrids, and the background of the world. You’ll find out how the Carters are all related to each other–which will bring out some interesting facts regarding some characters that may surprise you. You may even find a hint at how a Cosmos story is connected with The Revelation….

So until the time The Revelation returns, expect there to be some nice content to tide you over. Do expect further delays on the Cosmos stories I promised last year though–the Cosmos takes a secondary seat to the Mythos, so if the Mythos entries are on hold, so too are the Cosmos.

The Revelation to Return in Mid January

Sorry for the delays everyone. There has been some issues with my illness, some medication reshuffling and a bout with the flu keeping me from doing the revisions I need to do, and making matters worse is a family member who was injured, increasing the workload I have around the house. Because of this, I was unable to finish the final chapter before my break, and was forced to take it early.

I’m currently in the process of doing revisions, but they will not be uploaded until they are finished. At this time, I’m only planning on revising Part I; Part II will be revised at a later date. However, due to continuing issues and the upcoming holidays, I will probably not be releasing any more chapters/updates until mid-January. However, I do expect to have the next Cosmos story up well before then–expect a tentative release date for Inheritance soon.

Chapter XLIII is out!

Sorry about the delay! Chapter XLIII is out! Well, now we know how the red-haired young man made the lighter work. And Tri-Ball sure makes a mess, doesn’t it?

Also, what could possibly have made that scream?

Bit of a heads up, by the way: next week will be the last chapter for a few weeks. After that chapter is published, I’ll be rewriting existing chapters for quality. Don’t worry, you’ll get new content as well–during that time, I’ll also be working on Inheritance for the Cosmos subdomain. Graphic content advisory for that story–the climax will not be pretty.

Chapter XLII is Out!

We passed inspection! It was pretty painless. In all honesty, it almost always is, but considering keeping our home depends on us passing once a year, we tend to go overboard and stress about it far more than we should.

More importantly, The Revelation Chapter XLII is out! It appears that Ash is ditching the diet he was raised on, and Steven doesn’t seem to like it. Meanwhile, Carlton’s having another coughing fit. Maybe he should lay off his smokes?

And who, may I ask, is this red haired kid?

The Revelation Delayed–Only One Week

As you might have noticed, there was no chapter on Sunday. That’s because on Friday, we received notice of an upcoming inspection at home. These things are an annoyance, and different inspectors have different ideas of what constitutes “clean,” so no matter how spotless our apartment is, we always spend about a week making sure it’s outright sterile. This can be a bit difficult when one of the two people who lives there suffers from chronic, extreme pain and the other throws out his back early on, so we’ve been extra focused. Things should return to normal Sunday, and a new chapter should be out by then. If I’m able to, I’ll do a second chapter Wednesday or Thursday as well.
