Here is your handy-dandy quick reference to What Mel And Christy Are Up To, writing-wise, in the hopes that it will save our time and yours when you want to know what's up, what's next, are we going to revive X fic, are we making progress, blah blah blah. Please note:

**NAGGING WILL GET YOU NOWHERE.** In fact, nagging is counterproductive: Mel's writing juices positively dry up when she's faced with "write more write faster want want want", and then even Christy with a cattle prod can't keep things going.

Questions about progress on any of the fics listed here will be either ignored, or answered with something very brief along the lines of "check the sticky". Polite questions about anything not listed here by name will get polite answers. Rude questions about anything at all will get a Gundam despatched to stomp your house flat.

*updated 17 November 2014, about 2pm.*

State of the Mel: Directing minions!
State of the Christy: Busy!

State of the Website: Back up at a new provider! http://tormenthouse.org

State of the Other Websites: Since the collapse of the old House of Torment site, we've started putting our work up elsewhere. It'll take a while, but we'll eventually have full archives on Fanfiction.net and AO3.

State of the Writing:

- Hijacked by the plunnyjam!
--- Nurarihyon no Mago fic, Celadon: Up to Chapter 1.
--- Bleach sillyfic, Fight or Foreplay: Up to Chapter 6.
--- GW/Honorverse crossover: Up to Chapter 2.
--- GW/Bleach crossover, Bankai Wing: "Duo and Wufei and Heero and Nemu and Still Ghosts, Oh My" has been posted! Go read it!
--- Log Horizon fic, Respec: Chapter 2 is in progress, about 2/3 done!
Normal service will resume as soon as we can unjam our brains.

- Demon of Justice: Up to Chapter 43.
- Warped Mirrors: Up to Chapter 28.
- Alarums and Excursions: Up to Chapter 14.
- Rebuilding: Paused. We plan to resume it once DoJ is either completed, or at a point where switching between it and Rebuilding doesn't require a full brain reset.
- Viri & Hath: Part 2 started and percolating in Mel's brain. Part 5(?) already written and waiting for its turn.
- Everything Else: Hiding from the bunnies in the back of our heads. Progress is possible but not planned at this time.

WELP. Life goes on and health goes up and down and IVF still doesn't do the trick... damnit... and work demands attention, and what with one thing and another even if stuff gets written I flake on posting it! Aaaaaand then my computer dies. D'you know how much fun it is, posting from my phone? It is not fun. That is what it is.

I am sorry. Please don't blame Christy. It's not her fault. :P

(........also there's a WoW expansion. OMG. To quote Norcumi, "Those fools! They gave you MINIONS!" XD)


Bankai Wing part 5 )
melredcap: Cute chibi sketch of me by Asuka (Default)
...okay, this was actually written and ready to be posted about two weeks ago, and I COMPLETELY FLAKED on doing it. Uh. I blame... stuff. Life stuff. Including the fact that Christy and I just spent five days in another city, three of 'em attending a convention (having fun and buying way too many anime t-shirts). ;)

Fight or Foreplay part 6: Make It Look Good

Continuing the completely and totally INSANE Bleach silly fic, by Mel and Christy. Now with actual plot!
(Kenpachi + Ichigo + Grimmjow, Ulquiorra + Orihime, AU, OOC, language, moderately crackfic)


Fight or Foreplay 6 )
melredcap: Cute chibi sketch of me by Asuka (Default)
Augh, apologies for the delay in posting this chapter - it was kind-of finished weeks ago, back from betas and everything, but I have been in a complete "dear gods, editing is NOT HAPPENING" headspace. So. That's sorted. Here you go. :P


Warped Mirrors chapter 28: Vas-y! )

Because the bunnies won't stop biting until I get this out of my head. ;) Notes are at the end of the fic, or you can click on the second cut to see them first if you need to check out game-related terms and acronyms.

A present for Leah, because she is awesome, and because what she wanted for her birthday fitted perfectly with something that's been kicking around in my head since not long after Demon of Justice first started writing itself in there. If it's lasted this long without changing in any major way - and it has! - clearly it was only waiting for the correct time to be written. That looks like now. ;)

This is set some indeterminate time in the future of DoJ, and it contains one whopping big spoiler… but it's one that all our readers seem to think absolutely HAS to happen, so it's not going to be a big surprise. Enjoy!


DoJ Sidefic: Take This Waltz )
melredcap: Cute chibi sketch of me by Asuka (Default)
Oh look, we finished a chapter just in time to pretend it was deliberately timed as a holiday present to all our readers! ;) Have an excellent Christmas and a happy New Year, everyone, or whatever seasonally-appropriate celebration you prefer. (Dies Natalis Solis Invicti to any Mithras-worshippers, and happy Atheist Children Get Presents Too Day!)

The Handsome Hubby and I shall be buzzing off to visit my parents, putting the cats in boarding and leaving the yabbies to take over the house (they're just waiting for their chance, man, I tell ya), so I'll be back later... if the yabbies haven't cut off the internet. ;P

Okay, I don't do this often, but I just had to mention that I'm having way too much fun with a new app on my iPhone. It's not even a game! It's a scanner app that uses the iPhone camera to make astonishingly good scans of whatever document you point it at. It cost a whole $3 (OH NOES, MAH BUDGET!).

This one, to be precise: TurboScan. I'm currently using it to get high-quality PDF or JPG scans of pages in my fic notebooks - which I can therefore READ, unlike normal pictures of the same pages - email them to myself with a couple of taps, and then put them up on screen next to the Word file I'm typing them into. Much easier than trying to hold/weight/prop the notebook open while typing, and I can also enlarge it to make it easier to read - I write tiny when I'm thinking, and it's always well lit this way even if I haven't turned the light on in my study and am typing by the light of my screen, and and and XD

To show you how well this is working for me, here's a scanned page from a fic you might recognise. ;) (You're not getting a page from any current chapters, because I am a mean spoilsport who is keeping secrets. >:D)

Clicky here for BIG PICTURE of TEENY SCRAWLY WRITING! )

Bear in mind that this scan is:
- enlarged from a smallish notebook page (like I said, I write TINY - the faint grid lines you can make out are 4mm apart in real life, so just over 1/8")
- extracted from one quick snapshot from my phone camera, that was taken at a bit of an angle and self-corrected from the app
- NOT AS GOOD as the program can produce, because sending it to myself as a .jpg and then uploading it to Photobucket and linking it here involved a bit of file-shrinking. Even so it looks pretty damn awesome. ;)
- the app has an uber-scan mode for getting BETTER scans that involves taking three pictures and comparing them. You can get some REAL detail that way!

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to wander off taking picture-scans of random bits of text and giggling at the results. ;D

As promised, here is Chapter 42 (AKA Life, The Universe, And Everything) of Demon of Justice! Enjoy. :)

SURPRISE! Totally not the chapter you were expecting next! Don't worry, DoJ will be up tomorrow. ;)

In a magnificent display of brilliance and HTML (or possibly swearing), Christy has got the site back up! On a new provider, and with our own domain, even!

Please go to http://tormenthouse.org to check it out, read any back chapters you might be hankering for, and find any broken links etc that need to be fixed. (Hopefully none!) You can also use our new contact email, onnas@tormenthouse.org , to tell Christy how awesome she is.

Sooner or later, it had to happen...



Fight or Foreplay part 5: Getting Serious

Work is kinda busy and about to get busier - thus the lack of posts from me lately - but we're still writing!

Appropriately enough for an unluckily numbered chapter, a few things are hitting the fan... >:D

The saga begins! Well, it already began in the bits of backstory we've written up so far, but this is the first bit of the main mass of it... and boy is it ever a mass! It just kept spooling out until we had over 13k words, and I'm not certain whether to be delighted or horrified. ;P
