Gah! Guess Who's Posting Her Apocabigbang Story Tonight?

Just fair warning.

Tonight I'll be posting my apocabigbang story tonight, all 75 pages, all ~22,000 words, all 4 parts tonight.

Oh, did I mention that I had to re-write the last 20 pages of this monstrosity (yes, the entire fourth part) after work last night when I discovered that the pages had copletely disappeared?

As in: Disappeared. Kapput. Evaporated. Sayōnara, Señorita.

It was fucking gone.

Thankfully I have a very good memory and was able to reconstruct it. Most of it. Pretty sure, anyway.

Typo-picking before and during posting should be just and absolute joy.

God help me, dealing with this story has been a complete clusterfuck from the word go.

Trust me when I tell you, I plan to bitch about in the next few days. Just keep your eyes on this space.

In any case, there will be also links to a soundtrack by krilymcc and artwork by tinylegacies linked with the story. Be sure to drop by and give them positive comments for their work on this, because I have royally sucked in giving them a hand. (See, "this story has been a completely clusterfuck from the word go" for my reasons why.)

Anyway, pertinent information under the cut for those who are interested in reading The Monsters are Due in Washington Square
