As soon as I saw this prompt, the answer came to me, so I just had to write it. Many thanks to Mari for her fabulous beta work and to Sotia for all her help.
So, this is the second chapter of what was supposed to be a one-shot. Funny, huh? Anyway, hope you like it. Sotia, without you everything would be harder. Mari, I am indebted to you for your work to help my stories.
So I'm back dfrom Greece once again, after exchanging the engagement rings with Sotia in front of our reunited families during Easter. I am so happy there are no words to describe how much. As for this chapter, it benefitted, as ever, to the watchful eye of Mari. Many thanks to her.
Many thanks, as always go to Sotia and Mari. Now, without further ado, and after a great delay, the continuation of this story, with my thanks to any and all who still want to read it.
Believe it or not, I'm still alive! It has been a few years ince I've updated any Spuffy, but RL has been at me like you wouldn't believe. I have more chapters on this ready to go and I hope I will actually finish it soon. So here's hoping anyone out there is still interested in this one.
Here it is, as promised, another installment. I fordot to mention that the previous chapter was beta-ed by Mari, whereas from here on it's the work of Deibirchen. A great 'Thank you!' goes out to both, as well as to my wife, Sotia.
I had a very busy Thursday, so I wasn't able to update, but here I am, a bit late, but still around. Hope you enjoy!
Beta by Deibirchen.
Beta by Deibirchen. In other news, the muse has been pretty flaky this week (maybe because I'm manning the night shift), so not much writing has been done on the 13th chapter, but the ideas are there and I have it fleshed out in my mind. Now if I could stay awake long enough to write.
Beta by Deibirchen.
And a very happy birthday to Heather!
This is un-beta-ed, but I decided to go ahead and post it anyway, with the mention that once it's gone through some editing, I might re-post it. Anyway, hope you all enjoy!
Sorry for the delay in posting this, but my work schedule has been very demanding. Again, this is posted with no beta work, so I take responsability for any and all mistakes.
As you might figure out, the timeline from here on out won't be strictly canon. Some things will come sooner than they did on the show, some later, some not at all. I figure that the power dynamics shifting so much would cause a ripple effect and attract or deter various occurences.
Anyway, this is yet another chapter sans-beta, so I hope it's not too bad.
As usual, I take full responsibility for my mistakes.
Another chapter without a beta. I take full responsibility, but my schedule doesn't really allow me the time/energy to start looking for ways to make this work other than as is.
I would like to, once more, explain that some things will happen faster and other slowr than on the actual show. The changes in the power dynamic would have the 'ripple effect' and therefore some 'bads' would steer clear where they'd previously swarmed in, while others would be attracted like moths to a flame, appearing faster than they were supposed to.
Yet another chater sans beta, but that's become the norm. I hope the writing won't give anyone headaches.
Sorry for the delay and any possible mistakes.
Sorry I was late, but getting back into the working frame of mind has taken a bit of a toll.
Sorry for the delay, but some RL has been catching up with me. Also this chapter was a bit harder to write than the previous ones, since the muse wasn't all that helpful. I knew what I wanted to say and where I wanted it to go, without actually managing to get there easily.
Here's another installment, almost on time. I hope there will be no more delays, but it's mostly up to the muse ;)
A new training programme has begun at work, also lots of things to do at home, so this is late. I know. I'm sorry.
It's been a while, I know, but a lot of potical and economic turmoil in the whole country, not to mention summer vacation meaning I was either away, or busy covering for missing colleagues, meant I didn't really have the time/muse necessary for writing. Hopefully things will become more subdued after Sunday's election, and that I'll be in a better writing mood. As is, there are a couple of chapters more available.
I really hope you like this.
It's going to get a bit darker as we head for the Big Bad.
First, let me apologize for another long absence. On to the good news: the fic is almost complete and I think I'll be updating regularly from now on. That being said, (Orthodox) Easter is almost upon us, so no promises. I hope what I do post will outweigh in quality what it lacks in quantity and/or regularity. (Still not beta-checked, so...)
I know it's been more than a week, however the delay has allowed my beautiful wife to work some of her magic, allowing me to bring you a much better version of this chapter than the original. I hope you all enjoy,
This is yet another unedited chapter, but since it's Easter here, no chance my wife will have time to edit for me. I hope you enjoy anyway.
The chapter names for this and the previous one (and possibly for the following chapters) are taken from Apollo 440. Also this is unedited.
Sorry for the delay, but working nights and sleep-walking most of the day isn't very conductive of Spuffy writing. This chapter is also un-beta-ed, as well as named after a Apollo 440 song. Disclaimers about the song title, as well as the characters are in full effect.
Chapter name also from Apollo 440.
Another chapter, another Apollo 440 song title ;). Sorry for the delay, but I wasn't entirely sure where I wanted this chapter to end. It was a case of knowing what I wanted to say, but being unsure if it would all fit. No beta, still.
It's been a while, but I wasn't really sure where I wanted to take the story once the show-down was over.
So I finally decided on writing two epilogues, the first of which being this one. I hope you enjoy.
As always title from Apollo440 and no beta.
So this is it: here's the second epilogue. I'd like to thank everyone and anyone who ever read any part of this fic, and especially those who have liked/commented on it.
