luxken27: (Inuyasha - Equals)
First of all, a bit of necessary squeeage:

Statistics ahoy! )

Anyone who’s been reading this journal for some length of time will realize how much I <3 the metawriting. Author’s notes abound here – hell, that is the entire point of the exercise, to share the ideas behind the ideas, how I came to certain conclusions, what my motivations were for writing this character in that situation, and why I think it does (or doesn’t) work.

So you can imagine, in an undertaking so massive as this one – a simple thirty prompt challenge table that somehow morphed into an incredibly complex, multi-layered intrigue-laden serialized fic, that I’ve been absolutely dying, trying to keep all the meta inside. Just look at the lengths I go to for single drabbles, and you’ll have some understanding of my struggles, LOL.

But, it was a tradeoff – the suspense and drama that keep the readers coming back for more (more than one person has referred to this fic as their crack, LOL) would be completely and totally spoiled if I laid my thoughts bare after completing and posting each chapter. My favorite part of writing notes – dissecting the characters – would absolutely ruin the reading experience, as half the fun with this fic is trying to figure out who’s the most reliable narrator, what some of the characters’ motivations truly are, and if certain relationships can ever be repaired.

So, this won’t be one of my usual “here are my thoughts on yaoi” author’s notes posts. To do that would absolutely ruin both the readers’ enjoyment of the story, as well as my motivation for writing it. I truly enjoy the feedback I receive after posting each chapter, here and on the archives, as it really helps me see things through the eyes of my readers and helps shape the story in many sometimes surprising ways. You guys keep me on my toes, LOL, always trying to stay one step (or twist!) ahead.

But I’d still like the other part of writing author’s notes – keeping a log of references and personal motivations – for this piece. Thus, I’ve decided to compromise: have a little something for me, and let you guys in on some of the “inside stuff” of this story.

Points of interest… )

As the story progresses, I’ll be adding more bits and pieces to this post.

Title: Fleeting
Universe: Alternate
Genre: Drama, Romance
Rating: M
Warning(s): Language, innuendo, explicit sexual situations
Summary: All he ever wanted was a considerate roommate…but she turned out to be so much more. When they’re unwillingly thrown into a world of cutthroat business intrigue and family secrets, she quickly becomes the most important person in his life – if only he can find a way to truly trust her, body and soul. AU; Serial.

Happy fifth anniversary, Fleeting!



There is still one more chapter and an epilogue to post - and, if SessMom gets her way, a bonus scene starring her =)

Guess who finally managed to make that angst worth it? LOL :P I'm sort of stupidly excited about this chapter, and have lots of goodies to share. Notes will be added to the mega-meta resource thread as soon as I get my links together! =) Notes have been added! =)

This is NOT the end of the story - there are two chapters and an epilogue left, and lots of loose ends to tie up - but I think its what everyone's been waiting for, to say the least :P I hope you enjoy!!
