Writing and Seven Seas

apollymi: Faraday at the card table, gun in hand, no text (Mag7**Faraday: Gambler)
[personal profile] katsuko and I finished a thing. It's only on AO3 right now, but it's cute and sweet and funny and needs to be read by all the people!

What I need to be working on is Wicked Ones. I'm fast catching up to where I am in writing, and neither [personal profile] katsuko nor I are currently working on it. I'm trying to, but Mean Faraday has a lot less to say when he's feeling less mean and more at peace. I'm pretty much stopped working on the AUs for Wicked Ones (Letter 'verse, Wild Horses, and Wandering Boys) until I get more done on the main verse, which doesn't seem to be happening very quickly.

What I have been working on is Monstrous: After Midnight and Resurrectionist. Because in Monstrous: After Midnight, I realized I needed to actually write some follow up to the mining camp scene, and because I felt like I needed to help out more with the story itself. And Resurrectionist is just fun and completely irreverent of actual canon: no one is meeting in the right order, everything has gone to shit, we're doing completely wrong pairings, and I want to see people collectively start losing their shit because it's going to take most/all of the story to get them to "right" pairings.

I'm working on editing a "light novel" for Seven Seas. It's long, and it's boring, and it's sorta meh... but it's still better than the Steampunk Dracula thing. I was sent the first roughly 100 pages to turn in by the 27th. I'm on page 52, so I'm doing okay, as far as I'm concerned. I don't actually know how long the novel itself is. I do know that I get paid $225 for the work, which is nothing to sneeze at. It won't pay this month's rent, but it might pay May's or June's.

And that's where I'm at for today. Later, all.
