Last night I posted the final installment of ADORE, ADORE. Just in time to make my goal of completing it in 2014! Wooooo! You can read the entire story on AO3 and FictionPad. I also posted the chapter by itself on FFn, but their site is having issues so you might want to check out one of the others.
I originally posted this story in January 2011. That was four years ago. Jeebus, where does the time go? I can’t decide if I should be proud for sticking with something for so long, or ashamed because it took me that long to complete, lol.
I’m glad I expanded the original one-shot, but because it didn’t start as a full length story, and the beginning chapters were just an excuse to write something smutty, the plot and characters didn’t get the attention they deserved. That was something that didn’t bother me four years ago, but I’ve come a long way in regard to writing, and now it does. I think that’s why I had such a hard time finishing it. In my head I understand the characters and their motivations, but it’s hard to turn a story around when it’s over halfway written.
Also, writing dirty smut is hard! (hehehe) My goal was to write something super dirty and to push the envelope. I wanted people to read it and be a little bit uncomfortable, and then to be like, “Wait, I kind of like this.” Hopefully you did!
