4th Saturday

Is it that time, already? With the waning of the month, I *did* set aside my other writing for a day in order to prepare for August’s Fandom Foray. While I can’t goof off in fandom as much as I used to (hey, it takes just as much work to write fanfiction as it does the stuff I get paid for), I’ve set aside one day a month for indulging my whim … and finishing the handful of fanfics that are awaiting resolution. Today, I’ll be adding chapters to Vassal (Mir&Sess, canon divergence) and updating Unexpected (Inu/Kag, janitor AU). Drop by my Ko-fi account if you want to receive updates, suggest prompts, and/or tip the author. ::twinkle::

Jacques All June

Lord Mettlebright’s Man. I hope you’ve been enjoying the (mostly) daily updates to LMM all month. As we’re nearing the last handful of days, I’ve decided to open up an offer for MOAR Jacques, this time in your mailbox. This is the sort of thing I send to patrons who support me over on my Patreon account. (Incentives abound!) However, I printed extras, and Jacques is generous. (Well, sort of.) So on this Fandom Foray day, when I’ll already be hanging out on my Ko-fi account, I invite you to buy Jacques a coffee. Your $4 will help cover printing & postage … and give you something nice in the mail.

4th Saturday

Fandom Foray. I set aside today for a bit of fandom frittering. I’m dusting off Vassal after a 2-month lull, and I’ll have an update to Unexpected ready to crown the day. If you have time to drop by my Ko-fi account, be sure to add a few prompts to my options for drabbling. I love variety.

11am – 5pm (pacific)

Unexpected

Fandom Foray. Every month, I’m hosting a foray into fandom on my Ko-Fi account. Usually, I’d be working up a handful of Vassal chapters for you, but because of Travis Baldree’s narration of Governed by Whimsy: The Anthology, I’m doing things a bit differently for May’s updates. No Vassal (boo), but I’ve prepared TWO new chapters of Unexpected. One just posted, and you’ll have another later this afternoon. Enjoy!

Ko-fi Event

Starting Now. If you’re into my InuYasha stuff, I’m officially starting my fandom foray over on Ko-fi. Expect updates to Vassal throughout the day. (You can suggest a prompt on the “Prompt Me Promptly” post over there.) Miroku & Sesshoumaru are my opening act. I’ll add more chapters to Vassal, but the headliner is definitely Unexpected, and a new chapter will post before I wrap up. All very low key. Drop by and chat with me there.

Tomorrow!

Fandom Forray. I’ve set aside tomorrow as a day for fandom writing. I’ll be working on Vassal again. (Drop off prompts for me over on Ko-fi! Umm… if you click on an image, it’ll let you leave comments.) And Unexpected will update before the day’s done. ::twinkle::

Fandom Foray

Friday, April 23. Go figure. As soon as I establish the 4th Saturday of the month for forays into fandom, I have to make an exception. There’s a Pokemon GO! event this coming Saturday, April 24. (Yay for Friendship Day!) So I’ve decided to host my Ko-fi event a day early. Look forward to new installments of Vassal throughout the day (11am – 5pm), and a finale in the form of an Unexpected chapter. Drop by early with prompt suggestions as I try to decide where Vassal will go next! ::twinkle::

This is… Unexpected

I’m fielding a fandom friend’s question here on the blog since my answer may be interesting to others (if not everyone). ::twinkle::

The Question
Don’t know where else to ask so here it goes. Will you be continuing ‘Unexpected’ on ffn.net? Not being demanding or anything, just need to quell my curiosity and also see if there’s any way to persuade you to finish it. It’s been my favorite for so long now.

. . .

My Answer
This is an excellent place to ask. And opportune timing, since I have recently added Unexpected to my writing schedule. I even announced it, though in a place where nobody knows to look for the little hints and rumors I enjoy generating.

I recently secured a Ko-fi account, which I plan to use for fandom fun. Beginning next year (tentatively March 2021) I will host a monthly “event,” reminiscent of Drabble/Drawble Nights of old. And as a finale for the day, I’ll add a new chapter to Unexpected.

Ko-fi
For those not familiar with the site, Ko-fi work like … like a tip jar. If you want to show your appreciation for my efforts, you can “buy me a coffee.” The money (all of it) is sent directly to my PayPal account. This is a good option for people who aren’t able to commit to a monthly pledge (that’s how Patreon works). Nothing much will happen over there until next year, when I pick up Unexpected and Vassal for our Ko-fi dates. Look forward to it!
