Where are you guys going to get your slash fix?
ETA: Speaking of which, Chapter 17 of The Golden Bird is complete and will be posted on Friday.
(Seriously, I am not kidding around with these warnings. Read at your own risk.)
In other news, it's spring. My cat is taking advantage of the season to terrorize the field mice that dare to venture out of the basement. Whenever she hears a bird singing outside she looks thwarted. It's adorable until I remember this infographic and realize that my fat, fluffy darling is actually a ruthless serial killer.
At least the chihuahua is harmless.

Thanks to everyone who voted! I'm truly grateful for any feedback I get. *g*
Also, if anyone has any advice for getting LiveJournal to stop fucking up my formatting, it would be really appreciated. I have to go back and edit every entry several times after posting it because line breaks and periods get mysteriously deleted.
However! I would appreciate some advice. No doubt due to my abysmal lack of organizational skills and penchant for verbosity, I've had quite a few chapters of TGB run so long (5000+ words) that I decided to split them up. Now I'm wondering whether I ought just plan on writing shorter chapters (2000-3000 words) and post more frequently. Thoughts? Opinions? Witticisms? Inquiring minds want to know!
(And speaking of chapters, the next one is finished and will be cleaned up and posted within the next few days.)
ETA: Okay, so option 2 on the poll below should read "Longer chapters less frequently", not whatever nonsensical ridiculousness it currently states. Fff making lj polls while exhausted.
[Poll #1892503][Poll #1892503]
I'm not totally happy with this chapter but I'm sick of poking at it. So I am surrendering the damn thing to LJ and moving on with the story.
(One of my New Year's resolutions was to be less self-deprecating. Ahem. It's a work in progress?)

CHAPTER 12 cont'd
Damn you, Livejournal. Damn you to to the ninth circle of blogging platform hell.
( By the time Robert arrived back at the flat it had begun to rain. )
