• Story Updates: September 20

    This seems to be working out pretty well, so I think I'll continue filing story updates in this fashion.  I might split a few off every once in a while, but keeping them compiled like this gives everyone a specific spot to find them, and allows new stories to chill in the fanfiction tab without being spammed off by updates.

    Just a reminder for everyone who is confused:
    • These posts are ONLY for Fanfiction updates, not new stories
    • Final update (Complete) Stories will not appear here, but will instead bump.  A lot of people wait until the long series stuff completes before diving in. 
    • I'm taking suggestions on how to improve these posts, feel free to drop a line in comments. 
    All updates are after the break!
