Progress Update  
Good morning (or afternoon), all! After finally getting nine hours of sleep (and isn't that weird?), I am proud to announce that the chapter is at 5,130 words and eleven pages. On a Monday. Now, we have cheated a bit in that some of this chapter was written at an earlier date, but about 2,000 of it was written last night. And we're only posting the first chapter of One Week on Saturday. That way everyone gets to enjoy it a bit more. This is it, folks, what some of you have been waiting for since Act Five opened. And we even get a visit from someone I told you hadn't disappeared for good! ;)

I'm so excited to be here finally. Remember when I thought it was going to be within a couple of chapters into Home? *snort* Oh, well, we wouldn't have had Smallville and that was important to the plot. I'm glad we actually got the chance to do that. And we're not too terribly far from the end of this Act. There's still the epilogue to contend with, which should be a crowd-pleaser and several chapters long, but we'll be ending this section at Christmas time and picking the finale up in April. Interested? We hope so. I'd like to say we'll be there by New Years, buuut... Yes, this is the fic that doesn't end. *sigh* Sorry we're taking so long to wrap, everyone.

And I apologize for not commenting as much as I should be lately. Things are picking up at work again, with no shortage of headaches and still with itty-bitty crews.  And if I have to listen to Blue Christmas until January, after having to listen to it for the last month, I may just kill myself. And they haven't changed the Musak over yet, thank God!  Besides, who's brilliant idea was it to start putting that stuff up at the end of September? Not to mention the cinnamon pinecones three feet in front of Customer Service. ACK!!! Just tell me and I'll kick his ass for the good of all retail employees everywhere. Odious bastard. :P

Sorry we're taking so long to wrap, everyone.

Are you kidding?! LS is on my to-do list every Saturday, and I'm really going to miss it when it's gone!

That's such a huge compliment! It's hard to imagine being this close to end for us, too. Good thing we're only going to take a couple months' break before Heirs. *hugs* Thanks, love!

Excellent - two chapters of fun!

And *ahem* I've been waiting LONGER than Act Five...

*raises hand* I second that... :D

I'm actually starting to get curious... how long has it really been? If I were at home, I would be able to see when the very first version of OW first graced my inbox... Abby? What about you?
Anissa Roy: unstable bitchy mystiqueanissa7118 on November 6th, 2007 06:44 am (UTC)
The first part was sent to Abby waaaaay back in March. We may have sent it to you earlier than that, Barb. But check. I want to know.

Never have so many wanted so much to read what is known to so few.

Unless it was called something else, the first version I have is only from June. *scratches head* I swear I read something before that though... maybe on IM?

Anyway, it's been a good LONG stretch. :)
Lois: Lois Perplexedkalalanekent on November 6th, 2007 06:54 pm (UTC)
Huh. That's weird. Must have been on IM because I know I was talking to you about this long before Abby got in on the act.

*rolls eyes at the pun* Mooooom!
Barbara: Wink HIMYMhtbthomas on November 6th, 2007 09:00 pm (UTC)
Mystery solved! See my reply to Anissa.

And... what pun? ;D
Anissa Royanissa7118 on November 6th, 2007 08:53 pm (UTC)
We've got it having been sent to you on March 6th, titled one week (as opposed to one week smut). Same day as we sent it to Veatch. Scary how long this thing's been around, huh? We've got it mentioned in emails as far back as 12-18-06.
Barbara: Love - SMLMJhtbthomas on November 6th, 2007 08:59 pm (UTC)
I searched my mail inbox, and indeed, I got it March 6th. The date I saw must have been because I opened and modified it somehow in June. So you've been keeping both of us dangling for a very long time...

ONLY the first chapter?! Aw man! Evil writers...

*crines* I don't want the story to end! Take as long at you want, lol

Regardless of my religion, I never look forward to Christmas for that very reason. Dumb music. And can stores at least wait until AFTER Halloween?
Anissa Roy: danger destroyanissa7118 on November 6th, 2007 06:46 am (UTC)
OMG, Volde-mart had the Christmas stuff up at the same time as the Halloween decorations. SACRILEGE! I loathe that, it spoils the whole season.

And radio stations here in town are already playing Christmas music on the weekends. OMFG. What the heck is WRONG with these people?!?!?!

This is not part of the reason why I'm pagan ... but it sure helps.

Money sells. Stupid money.

I want some.

Wait. Money sells? LOL
