Yes, this does mean I'll have five incomplete stories on MC at one time. You can just start calling me Beau. But unlike the other four stories, this one is not at all pre-written at the start of posting. I'm about to post chapter one, and I've only written chapter one. Such was not the case when I started posting Flippersteps in the Sand, Say Cheese! Heart of Gold, or Amazon? Moi? Now, don't think that I've given up on the other four. I have two unposted chapters of Amazon? Moi? left-- granted, one of them is not typed-- and plenty more story after that, but I haven't written any of it since the middle of the summer... So it's simmering, along with Heart of Gold and Flippersteps. I've given all three of those a little stir fairly recently. They're still simmering. Say Cheese! on the other hand, well... I'll get back to it someday. I think. But this particular story feels... different. It feels like some of my old stories did. In fact... I would venture to say that it's in about the same place right now as Swamp Call was when I started posting that. And besides, there's definitely a change in the wind. I know, because for the first time since I finished writing it about three years ago, I read through all of Summer in the Theater, from beginning to end. ...Okay, so I stopped to sleep in the middle. But still! I really do think that something's different this time, and it bodes well. So, without further ado... Well, alright, with enough further ado for me to do some copy-and-pasting and italicizing... Here we go again!
