Story Repository - Continually Updated Version

NEW: this'll be my Continually Updated Publishing Post, because why not?

Note: NO LONGER f-locked to those who know my real name! since this journal is my IRL self's extension, why not have my name here, too?

Note also: update includes: removing old-old stuff that I'll never get published. that's viewable on my 2012 Story Repository. Maybe I should make one for in-progress?

Note Finally: I'm rearranging these by Published (in chronological publishing order), Unpublished-But-Finished, WIP, and Probably-Not-Gonna-Publish.

WIP


Dame Ale and the Broken Tail - 7000wd - here
---- (in progress for Crossed Genres' Winter Well Anthology)
---- lulz, never finished it. Still WIP. Need to send it to someone, see how they like it.

The Teahouse in the City of Roots
---- started as a story of Arn-Bastio/Arrenabastacai. Changed it so that people not nmariside-familiar might get it. Also, for selling.

Old Olinscarr
---- see above, but with ancient-times-Olinscarr instead.

The Buzzard Who Wanted Golden Trees
---- don't know if this is what I'll title it

The Graverobber on Ghost Street
---- started as an isolated scene. Turned into post-apocalyptic Harbin. What the hell do I do with this?

Alexander
---- started as Remote-Controlled Doggirl, then became a near-future alternate history. What the hell do I do with this?

The Fine and Flying Finster-Bird
---- a fairytale I started and never finished. I should finish it.

My version of Urashima Taro
---- which was also started, but then also abandoned. I should finish it.

The Beloved
---- I don't know if this is a poem or a prose or a proemse or what. It's unfinished, though.

Jelena I and II
---- I'm going to clean up I and submit it. II is a WIP novel.

Benn West Crosses the Dubia
---- this is my I-just-feel-like-writing background story in Beijing.

(bare ideas: //the Son of the God of Suffering and Compassion// and //Flowers of the System//. We'll figure these out.)

(old stories to clean up: TSAS? - that's only one scene, though. I1? - that's good but unfinished; needs different scale? the Ruby Space/Sweet Midnight Land? - finish up Sweet Midnight Land!)
