After a lapse of 18 months (sorry!) I’ve returned to my ‘Season 6 without Buffy’ story Came The Thunder.

Summary: Willow’s concentration slips during her spell to bring back Buffy, she misses out a couple of words, and a very different resurrected Slayer arrives in Buffy’s place; Nonoma’e’e, Thunder Woman, a Southern Cheyenne killed by the First Colorado Cavalry at the Sand Creek massacre in 1864. Integrating with the Scoobies, and adjusting to this strange new century, isn’t easy for her – or for them. Warnings: contains an Original Character, distressing historical events, violence, and Cheyenne language.

Chapter 1 is HERE, and each chapter has a link to the next. Rating of the story overall is R for violence. This chapter is fairly tame. 4,200 words.

Came the Thunder: Chapter 5 )

I’m juggling 3 stories at the moment, writing a passage of one and then moving to another, writing part of that one and then on to the third. The first of the three to reach a chapter ending point is my ‘Season 6 without Buffy’ story Came The Thunder.

Summary: Willow’s concentration slips during her spell to bring back Buffy, she misses out a couple of words, and a very different resurrected Slayer arrives in Buffy’s place; Nonoma’e’e, Thunder Woman, a Southern Cheyenne killed by the First Colorado Cavalry at the Sand Creek massacre in 1864. Integrating with the Scoobies, and adjusting to this strange new century, isn’t easy for her – or for them.

Chapter 1 is HERE, and each chapter has a link to the next. Rating of the story overall is R for violence. This chapter is fairly tame. 3,550 words. When the last chapter ended ‘Buffy’ had just been wounded by a demon and Nonoma’e’e had seen what lay under her skin…

I started a ‘Season 6 without Buffy’ story back in July; going to MidiMeet UK in August jolted me out of the groove for that one and I didn’t pick it up again on my return. At last, however, I have done so and here is the next chapter.

Summary: Willow’s concentration slips during her spell to bring back Buffy, she misses out a couple of words, and a very different resurrected Slayer arrives in Buffy’s place; Nonoma’e’e, Thunder Woman, a Southern Cheyenne killed by the First Colorado Cavalry at the Sand Creek massacre in 1864. Chapter 1 is HERE, and each chapter has a link to the next. 3,775 words. Rating of the story overall is R for violence.

Here is the second chapter of my new ‘Season 6 without Buffy’ story. Willow’s concentration slips during her spell to bring back Buffy, she misses out a couple of words, and a very different resurrected Slayer arrives in Buffy’s place. Chapter 1 is HERE. I've changed the name of Nonoma'e'e's Watcher since I posted Chapter 1. This chapter length is 2,760 words, PG-13.

Came the Thunder: Chapter 2 )

I can resist anything except, of course, temptation. With ‘Dojo Hard’ now complete I should have been working on ‘Tabula Avatar’ and, as I promised, completing ‘Life, Resumed’. Afraid not. I’ve started another WIP and my ‘to do’ list is back to exactly what it was before. I’ll be returning to the other stories tomorrow, don’t worry, but this one will be taking up a slot on my rotating schedule from now on.

I’ve wanted to write a story about a specific type of Slayer for about 3 years. I’ve mentioned it before, and indeed [livejournal.com profile] deathisyourart was even inspired to do artwork to accompany it, but I could never get the actual story to come out right. Then, last August, [livejournal.com profile] ffutures wrote an extremely clever drabble – read it before you start my story – and sparked an idea in me that set the plot bunny off in an entirely new direction. In the past few days it has all fallen into place.

This one is not a comedy (so those of you who have recently Friended me because of Dojo Hard won’t necessarily like this one, although I hope that you will). There will be some humor along the way, as there is in most of my stories, but not as much as usual and it starts off very dark indeed. NC-17 for extreme violence right from the start. Character death. This is BtVS Season 6 without Buffy! Be warned, an original character plays a very major role; although I think that most of you will be aware that I can be trusted to avoid Mary Sue syndrome.

Chapter length 3,000 words, NC-17. It begins in 1864…

[livejournal.com profile] deathisyourart’s banner, from the [livejournal.com profile] watchersdiaries ‘Art-a-thon Reversed’ event in January 2006, can be found HERE. Please DO NOT take this picture for any other purpose. Even I can’t use it without [livejournal.com profile] deathisyourart’s permission and the original deal was that permission would not be granted until the story is finished. So you can look, but don’t touch.
