damn it, and teleportation still isn’t a thing :( I would have come to the slash meet up, otherwise.

I wish you could be there! ;___; I’ll do a proper recap if we pull this off and exciting talk of Kyle’s butt occurs. Or maybe we could record the proceedings like we recorded the panel last year?!

maybetwice:

Finally staying in the super swanky historic (haunted) hotel that hollyhark wrote ghost fic about back in 2010 or some such and I am so excited

(I mean, it’s for work, so I’m not going to be in my room most of the time BUT WHATEVER)

I LOVE THAT HOTEL. We tried to go back last year but Priceline stuck us in the inferior one across the street. We did have ghost bar drinks, though. The women’s restroom on the left side of the lobby is freaky at night :|

I’m mostly caught up on answering comments and notes so this is my DRAGONCON MODE post — I’ll be updating my Twitter before during and after the con with pictures and other fun stuff like drunk Tweets probably?? And I’ll be back online for other purposes on … Thursday September 4, let’s say.

I think we’re going to try to do a SOUTH PARK SLASH MEETUP in the early evening on Sunday. Not sure if I have followers who go to Dragoncon aside from the ones I already know about, but if there’s anyone out there: let me know if you’re interested and I’ll pass the meetup details along!

1. Me too, that trope is one of my favorites!! And I enjoyed writing from Kyle’s POV in the summer camp story, but I’m really looking forward to doing Stan’s POV again, particularly in this scenario where he’s been holding down the fort in South Park, sort of trapped in the past but also missing this major element of it that is Kyle ;__; Glad you enjoyed the AU, and thanks for the note!
2. I had to explain this to my husband in the car this morning because I read it on my phone and he asked me why I laughed, haaa. There’s a part of me that gets hurt by certain characterizations of Georgia, since I don’t want to be associated with those things by proximity, but I also have to be like, ‘well, they’re right’ about many things/people/attitudes here…
3. GOOD, and LOL yeah I can see that! I like to go for the weird shit in fandom, it’s part of the fun, but I also love writing traditional genre scenarios like murder mystery + small town creepiness + childhood friends who were almost sweethearts reunite, and I think it’s worth a shot to do all that and try to also make it feel South Park-like. Part of the reason I want to wait until October is two shorter stories I want to finish before then, but I also want to start banking some chapters on this rather than posting them as soon as I finish the last sentence — I want to try to post a 5k chapter every week, so getting the pacing/scene breaks right will probably take some work at first, but I think it’s a worthwhile challenge. Though knowing me the chapters will progressively get longer until the conclusion is 40k - I’m going to try not to do that this time, though! Thanks for the note <3

Thank you so much for the messages about the epilogue and the upcoming story! Very happy you guys were into the summer camp story and that people are excited about Cop/FBI agent, because I am as well. I still need to answer specific epilogue comments on AO3 and FFN and hopefully I&#8217;ll have time to do that tonight or tomorrow. Important points:
-Re: bubble butt tight trousers Kyle: yes, and he will also wear suspenders under his suit jacket. I&#8217;m planning on posting this starting around the first of October. There are creepy elements so it should be good for the season.
-I hope I didn&#8217;t characterize Nebraska too terribly! Kyle&#8217;s impression of it was more about Cartman hating it there more than anything else, and my only frame of reference was the Cartman family home from that holiday episode of the show. I picked Kearney based on the location when I checked out Nebraska on Google maps, and also because I liked the sound of it for Cartman&#8217;s AU hometown. If they&#8217;re not growing up together in South Park I tend to put Cartman there, Kyle in New Jersey or New York, Butters in southern California, and AU Stan has been from California, Oklahoma and New Mexico, lol (though actually in that last case it wasn&#8217;t TECHNICALLY an AU. The explanation for Stan growing up in New Mexico/the crazy engine behind the Leave the Pieces scenario might be one of the most bizarrely complicated things I&#8217;ve ever written, so I won&#8217;t attempt to explain it here 8| )

awww, you’re very welcome, and I hope you’ll like it! Thanks for waiting and for the note <3

Tumblr ate my original post about this, COOL. Basically: this story is finally done, epilogue and all! This one took a lot out of me - when is the last time a chapter story took me nine months to finish? Never, I think? I’ve really appreciated the encouragement and comments I’ve gotten about this story since the start. It meant everything when I was struggling with this, and I really hope those of you who’ve been waiting for this conclusion will enjoy it!

It’s also posted on Fanfiction.net if you’d like to read it there.

Next up: Stan/Kyle reunion fic. Small Town Cop/Flashy FBI Agent. Murders in South Park. “This is my crime scene now!”

ahhhh, thank you for telling me asoidf. I hope it will be worth the wait whenever you do read it! I’m almost done editing now, and work has slowed down, so I’m optimistic that I’ll be able post it before 5pm my time (it’s 3:30pm here now). Thank you for cheering me on ;___;
