An update on Healing... 
1st-Sep-2006 03:35 am

I swear I am working on Healing Chapter 33. I have about 2000 words of it done and KumaDaPuma and I stuggled tonight to make the dialogue sound believable. And I do mean struggled. I don't write Charles well at all. This is a difficult story to wrap up and as of this post I'm not sure how the story ends. 33 will be the absolute final chapter. Then there's a ton of end notes where I basically bitch about writing every single sentence and placing all the blame for anything crappy in the story on my inexperience. I also make several lofty unfulfillable promises to improve.

There will be a sequel that picks up right where Healing left off. I'll probably start the sequel during November - national novel writing month. 

Till then I have several upcoming medium-long stories (nothing as long as Healing at 120,000 words. never again). I'm thinking probably a Magneto/Mystique and a Rogue/Logan. I may also expand out and write something in a different fandom. Although I doubt it. The effort I had to go to learn about the X-Men and specifically Rogue and Magneto was vast. I put in a lot of hours researching these characters and gathering resources to write about them. It's hard work. Hey, does anyone know if there's an LJ community devoted to the Magneto/Mystique pairing and if there isn't why not?

Also if you're artistically inclined and feeling generous you can help me by making a cool banner for Healing featuring Rogue and Magneto. I would love you forever and ever. I don't really need it. I just feel like a Healing banner would be cool. All my love to anyone who is still interested in Healing. I will happily field inquiries and suggestions. Please comment to this post. Send ideas. Help an author out.

Hm... I guess my skills in making banners are rather underaverage so... sorry, but I think the reseult would be rather cheap if I tried. Plus, I do not have one of these really good picture programmes *sigh*
Nice to hear chapter 33 is in progress. Yes, I agree, Charles is not easy to write, I´m excited to see how the story ends!
Hm.. don´t know of a Magneto / Mystique community, sorry. Happy writing! :-D
Oh and btw... do you have the x3 soundtrack on mp3 or something? could you send me some of it?

It's okay, you don't have to make the banner. I'll probably get around to doing it myself when I'm bored. But I'd be happy to send you a (not so legal) copy of Adobe Photoshop 5.5 if you want it. I'm always happy to share the software people have shared with me.

I've been talking it over with KumaDaPuma and begging her to join live journal so we can start a Magneto/Mystique community together. I can't believe there's a Magneto/Rogue and a Magneto/Charles but no Magneto/Mystique.

I don't have the soundtrack for X3 but I'll see if I can get it from BitComet. I do have the entire movie in .avi format if you want it. It's around 750MB and the only good way I have found to transfer it is through AOL IM. But I would be happy to try a different route if you know one.

Oh, thanks so much for offering to send the movie, but as my PC is already some four or a little more years old and beginning to be really outdated ,I guess that would be too much for him to download. i doubt it´d work. So... but wooot, I asked that woman in the *looks up word in dictionary* .. video store and she told me the release date for the X3 DVD is October 23rd in Germany, hooraay *does happy dance*

I don´t have photoshop yet so... how big is it? Could you send it via e-mail? No idea whether that´d work though

I totally understand about your computer being old. My computer will be 5 years old in January. He's doing alright so far, and I've managed to keep him alive. The only part that failed so far was the fan.

Read my new post. I'm try to set up a place for us to share photoshop and x-men movies. Photoshop is 103MB and most of the email services cap file at 100MB in size. I managed to send photoshop via AOL IM to Kuma. I'd be happy to try to send it to you that way if you like.

I just hope the chapter can live up to your expectations. I hate to dissappoint you. You're my most faithful reader and friend and I definitely feel like I am writing for you sometimes and that just makes me what to write a better story for your delight.

Yeah, no need to double post reviews. Keep 'em on FF. It's easier.

"Healing is a work of art! Words cannot describe my awe of your story" - I love you. Really how would I keep up my faith in my abilities without you. Whenever I get doubtful and feel like Charles or whatever character of scene is giving me problems I think of you and you make it all better.

I am eagerly awaiting my M/M story too, mostly to see how you die of happiness. I am writing it primarily for your benefit, since you turned me onto M/M.

"I don't see how chapter 33 couldn't be one of your greatest chapters to date. The conclusion is usually the most interesting and poignant. It's where everything comes together and the closure is justified." - Wow, lots of presure. And here I go leaving a ton of open plotlines for the sequel. I just hope there's enough closure for people to buy it.

I doubt my writing ability just about everyday on almost every line. I can usually tell when a section is terrific and another is dribble. And I'm not sure yet about 33. I feel - ugh, about part of it.

I have so much good stuff planned for the M/M. The only problem is they wouldn't be using their powers in it, only maybe in flashbacks. But otherwise its full of moments where you'll keel over in utter delight.
