@Samuel_H_Young

Not sure if you’ll remember me from commenting so much on your last stories, but I was a beta tester last year before I left this site altogether. (@Kristina_NRE) I was wondering if I could do so again?


#205

I remember! All of my betas are public, so feel free to test whichever ones you want. :slight_smile:


#206

Alright! I’ll be sure to help whatever I can. :blush:


#207

Sooo, after a lot of deliberation, I’ve decided that The Enchanter’s Misery will actually be split up into a trilogy instead of being one massive 750k word book. I know I’ve flip-flopped over this, but I’m pretty certain about this decision this time.

I have a couple reasons for this:

  • All three parts if the story are deeply connected and pretty similar, but they also vary enough in plot and tone that having them mashed together in one book could feel a bit strange.
  • Although I’m much more comfortable with writing longer stories after The Magician’s Burden, I’m just not sure if I could successfully write a full 750k word story without getting burnt out. If I split this up into 250k word installments, it should help me stay fresh and motivated.

All that said, I think 250k is a satisfying length, and I’m also sure you all won’t mind seeing this story finished this millennium. :wink:


#208

Well, I personally love huge length stories, but you know better. :sweat_smile: I will read it in any case.


#209

In a few months we expect you to change your mind again. :laughing:

Hey, however we get to experience your amazing story-telling, I will not complain.


#210

Lol, literally. I did the same thing with The Magician’s Burden :joy::sob:

Thanks!


#211

Just played the demo and loved it! Looking forward to the full game (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧


#212

Thanks for all the praise, everyone. Stroking my ego is great, but feedback and error spotting are appreciated too. :wink:


#213

good to see you again.


#214

fastest like i’ve ever gotten.


#215

I’m so tired that when writing Mass Mother Murderer, I kept putting Envy instead of Cherihl. :thinking:

Btw, sorry for sort of stuffing this in a box and not looking at it for months as soon as I saw the newer and shinier MMM. :sweat_smile: I promise this will be my only priority after I submit MMM.


#216

So many interesting characters like envy and bhlinj and Zendi was cute but she’s a sub ;p. So was that dialogue from the bandit about laying down and take it only for female characters?


#217

Thanks.

No, it’s for everyone. Gender really only effects pronouns and sex scenes in my stories.


#218

Ahh well that’s pretty progressive of him though I imagine he’d want a male to lay on their belly.


#219

He was threatening to kill the MC, but I guess it’s vague enough that you could interpret it in other ways.


#220

Ahh I just assumed he was trying to get a piece. Otherwise it’s kinda unreasonable to expect someone to just allow themselves to be killed. Being mugged or assaulted you might not fight back for but if the choices are die or possibly not die it’s just unreasonable to expect the former. How many people accepted his offer I wonder?

Bandit: lemme kill you
Random person: okey dokey.


#221

He’s giving them an ultimatum: a quick, painless death if they don’t fight back, or a slow, painful one if they do fight back. Obviously no one would just let themselves die, but that’s Cazius’ way of mocking and intimidating the MC.
