100indecisions: my chains are broken (alice | so beautiful when the boy smiles)
[personal profile] 100indecisions
You know, for Yuletide? And so far the only person who's commented is still the recipient? Even though a couple other people gave it kudos and it's somehow had 100+ hits? And I said I was going to write more and then I did because it's what I was working on for my "okay, my New Year's resolution is that I'll work on some fiction that I actually enjoy, at least in theory, for 10 minutes a day"?

Today I finally finished typing it all up and posted the additions, which ended up being two additional chapters on AO3 (and ff.net, when I cross-posted there) or 6,000+ words. That's a lot of writing, you guys. Especially considering it's been ages since I've, you know, actually finished something, let alone finished something that attempted to have a plot. (Funny thing--I think this is the longest fic I've actually finished, and it's...for a fandom I've never written before.) Cross-posting at [livejournal.com profile] theturningworld also took approximately forever, mostly because those also had to be in multiple parts.

OKAY LOOK WHAT I AM SAYING IS this fic took a long time (well, a lot of actual writing-time--as "total time from beginning to end on a fic" goes, this was...probably one of my shortest? Even though it has the longest word count? That's...embarrassing) and I put a decent amount of work/effort into it and, you know, Baldur's Gate has a very active modding community but not much in the way of an active fandom that I can tell--there are four whole communities for it here on LJ, two of which are Russian and one of which hasn't had a post since 2004 (the remaining one was Feb. 2010), and there are probably other places I can post it but I'm not totally sure where yet since I've never done a fic for a game fandom before...so basically it's not really being read or at the very least pretty much no one's commenting. Which is sad.

So...it would be really really nice if some of you guys could check it out? Obviously it helps if you've played either of the games, because I do use a lot of characters, items, and places from canon, but honestly you'll be pretty good with just what you can learn from Wikipedia about the first game or even just basic knowledge of how adventuring-party fantasy-RPG works. Or just take it as straight fantasy, for that matter, most of the canon stuff I refer to is fairly self-explanatory in context. Probably. There are girls being awesome! And angst! And sisterly family-that-you-make cuteness! And okay, I'm finding a number of communities that would probably be okay for cross-posting so I'll maybe get just a few more comments, but...BUT STILL. I WANT YOU GUYS TO READ THE STUFF I WRITE. PRETTY PLEASE? YOU CAN READ IT ON AO3 OR [livejournal.com profile] theturningworld OR FF.NET, WHICHEVER YOU LIKE BEST. Okay I am turning off the capslock now.
