I wrote around 1k, finishing another WIP chapter which I even managed to edit and post today. Sadly then I grew too tired to make progress on the exchange fic, but hopefully that will change tomorrow!

And once more we've nearly reached the end of the month! navaan offered to take up June again last month, are you still up for that?

Today wasn't super productive - a bit of editing, and around 500 words of the slavefic WIP plus I hosted a livestream of Fun Home. But I also finally finished my playthrough of Dragon Age: Origins. I played it ages ago when it first came out, and I decided last year that I want another playthrough of all the DA games again. Heatwaves are pretty good for that - it might be too warm to concentrate on writing, but it takes less concentration to slay an archdemon.

Also I booked my flights to NYC for September, aaaaah! I'm so excited. Air Berlin had a crazy sale for about an hour or so, so I ended up paying half of what I expected I would for September flights! (More money to invest in theatre tickets! :D All I ever bring back from my travels is a bag full of playbills, but what more do you need?)

It's warm again which I do not like - but at least I managed to be moderately productive. I finally got to post the Big Bang, which means sharing the gorgeous art at last! I also managed around 1k of slavefic and 500 words of the exchange fic, so, slow but steady progress there. I'd love to be able to finish the exchange fic until the end of the month, but even if that doesn't work out, I've still got 2 weeks until the deadline so I should be fine. And then no more deadlines! \o/

FIC: The Basin of Pilate [Les Misérables]

The Basin of Pilate (26311 words) by Esteliel
Chapters: 5/5
Fandom: Les Misérables - Victor Hugo
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Javert & Jean Valjean, Javert/Jean Valjean

Summary:

For eight long years, Jean Valjean has tried to do good in the town of Montreuil-sur-Mer, ever aware of the suspicious gaze of Javert. When a letter arrives from an escaped convict who claims to have recognized Madeleine as a former galley-slave, Valjean has no choice but to meet with his blackmailer. Soon, both Valjean and Javert find themselves in a situation they cannot escape, forcing Valjean to relive the suffering of his past, and Javert to doubt his duty for the first time in his life.

When Valjean stood to make his way to the window, pale and sweating, he found the streets busy. Was there a man waiting in the crowd for him even now? Was there someone watching this window, ready to point a finger and cry out Jean-le-Cric?

With trembling hands he loosened his cravat, feeling as though he was choking on the gloom that seemed to close in on him. Then his eyes spied a darkness in the crowd: the tall, forbidding figure of Inspector Javert, stalking along the street like a shadow come to life, suspicious scowl hidden beneath a worn hat. For a moment, Javert stopped and raised his eyes to the window of the mayor’s office.

A little more editing today, and 1.2k of my Les Jours fic written! After that I wanted to reward myself with writing more slavefic, but after a paragraph of that I got terribly tired, and I think I'll just go to bed and see if I can get up early and write tomorrow. My BB is all ready for posting tomorrow, too!

Also it's only 2 weeks now until I'll be back in London, I can't wait! Cast change should be fun, and I'll probably also see another show or two. (And probably In the Heights for the 4th time because I love that show so much, sigh!) And today I was looking some more at the shows I want to see in NYC, which never fails to make me happy! In a few days I will start to book that trip. I was sobbing through half of Ramin's final show, so let's see how emotional Broadway closing will make me! (Probably VERY! /o\)

Today wasn't all that productive - some editing, and then around 400 words on the Les Jours exchange fic. But what matters is that I've finally started it, and I like the idea I have for it, so hopefully this won't take too long now that I've got the beginning!

There was a lot of editing happening today - some on the origfic, some on the final BB chapter, and then I also edited and posted the next slavefic WIP chapter. We'll see if I'll be able to keep up the fast updates - right now it's way too much fun to think about, and I'm trying to keep it pressure-free tropey fun with (for me) short chapters. Though tomorrow I should really start working on that final exchange fic!

The slavefic proves irresistible catnip - another 1.5k on that. But I also managed some more editing of the final BB chapter - 3 more days until posting and getting to share the amazing art with everyone! And I think I finally have an idea for my Les Jours assignment, yay! Now I just need to write it...

I've done some editing and managed around 500 words on the new slavefic WIP, and some brainstorming for the Les Jours exchange that hasn't yet yielded a concrete idea. Maybe I'll dream of something. /o\
