After a long gap, due to various factors including my sudden desire to write a Conan crossover and my wife's desire for new furniture and the consequent necessity to repaint the living room walls, we have completed the next chapter of our co-written Spike/Dawn fic Access All Areas. At long last we present Chapter 17.

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] calove. I would have had that as a scrolling banner, with flashing lights if I could work out the coding, but sadly Cass doesn't seem to be around on LiveJournal any more.

In other news; Gary Gygax has died. He may well have had more influence on my life than any other single individual outside my immediate family (I don't credit Dave Arnesson with as much of the creation of D&D as I do EGG). Farewell, Gary, may St Cuthbert of the Cudgel watch over you, and may you find yourself in Heaven playing D&D with Al Gore, Stephen Hawking, and Nichelle Nichols for eternity.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my post about the snapping of my dental palate. There were twice as many as those who commented on the 9,000-plus word chapter of ‘Tabula Avatar’ that I posted the preceding day. I’ll have to make sure that the next TA chapter contains plenty of denture-snapping action!

Chapter Sixteen of ACCESS ALL AREAS, the Spike/Dawn action/thriller story that I'm co-writing with [livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat, went up tonight. It’s been a long time; it was August 27th when Chapter Fifteen appeared. All my fault; CW did her part of the chapter weeks ago and has been waiting for me. Sorry.

Chapter Ten of 'Access All Areas', the Spike/Dawn story that I'm co-writing with [livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat, went up tonight. During 'Doctor Who', which is perhaps not the best time to post, but we had forgotten that it was on.

Previous chapters are HERE.

It's the sequel to her romantic S/D story Ten Years After; but 'Access All Areas' isn't a romance. Ten years after 'Chosen' Dawn's investigations into the background of The Key take her and Spike to Prague and into deadly danger.

A new chapter of Access All Areas, the Spike/Dawn story that I'm co-writing with [livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat, is up now. Chapter Eight, in which there is blood. Lots of it.

CW's Spike/Adult Dawn story Ten Years After, was very well received but if it had a flaw it was that it was perhaps a little fluffy and lacking in conflict. The late, sadly missed, [livejournal.com profile] nandibble commented If (as I hope) you continue this tale, please give some thought to throwing some powerful opposition into the mix to avoid blandness.

CW thought hard about this and recruited me to provide said opposition. The sequel is dedicated to Nan and we like to think that she would approve. The result is definitely not bland and, in this chapter, it is about as far from fluffy as you can get.

In other news; 'Tabula Avatar' was nominated in the previous round of the Spark and Burn Awards in the 'Best Crossover' section but there weren't enough nominees and it was carried forward to the next round. This time there are enough nominees and it is possible to vote for it - or, of course, for something else - in the Reader's Choice Poll. I haven't voted myself yet - you have to vote in almost all the categories, with no more than 3 blank votes, and I haven't yet had time to read enough entrants to make an informed vote in most categories - but I thought I'd better bring it to your attention.
