Summary: Charlie + Janine + baby makes three.

The master index for my 'Count Me In' series. As I'm writing it in a very non-linear fashion, if you'd like to enjoy the story in order, here's the place to do it.


Summary: Exactly what it says on the tin: a post-canon BSC headcanon in which Charlie Thomas and Janine Kishi discover each other, become great friends, and fall in love. The namesake of this series is the 1966 song by Gary Lewis & The Playboys, because I thought it rather fitting to this particular pairing:

If you need someone to count on when you’re down
And all your other friends you’ve lost, count me found
Just be sure you count on me, and when the counting’s through
Count me madly in love with you…

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.

It's been seven years in the making, but we're finally here: the New Year's Eve concert! ♥

Notes on Chapter 26 )

Believe it or not, this is (only) the official halfway point of the story. (Yes, 120K words is only -half- the story, LOL.) I am forever optimistic that it won't take seven (or more) years to finish the rest of it (especially considering there is an equally-long sequel percolating in the background), but there are plenty of Major Storylines to come, including the integration of several episode plots, Stacy's birthday, the prom, graduation, and summer. Whew! This fic might give new meaning to the word "epic" if we ever make it to the end! :P

I love it when I have sudden, random ideas. I wish it happened more often. Its the rare times like these that writing is 100% magic and 0% sausage-making chore :D
