So, for the last couple years, more or less, I've been working on this fantasy sort of story that I'm not sure where to post now that it's all but done. There are a few reasons for that, and I hope talking about them will help me figure out what I'm going to do now that I'm pretty much ready to share the finished product.
The biggest thing I'm trying to get sorted out is how, exactly, to classify this thing. It's a fifty-fifty mix of my own ideas and things drawn from various things I'm a fan of. My gut is telling me to go with fan fiction when I categorize it. It will make an interesting elseworlds tale, if nothing else, I suppose.
The setting is the same one I used for a non-standard Mystery Science Theater sort of series I wrote ten or twelve years ago, at the tail end of when such things were still popular and relatively common. I'd like to get back into it a bit, and I feel a need to establish the setting again before I do. If you're interested in seeing some of the previous work in that genre I've done, here's a previous thing I did about it here on dA:
Your Buddy JM, April 1997
Another issue I'm a little worried about is the length of the piece. As it stands, it's eleven pages long, and I've never tried to post a written work that long here. I'm not sure if dA will take a text document that long. I suppose I could try at someplace like FanFiction.net, but for now, I think I'll call that more a second option because I've forgotten a few things about how FF.net's system works in the few years since I've posted there. I'll see how things work out and post an update here if things need to change.
There are a few other things that come to mind, as well, but I've got doubts about how much I really need to worry about them. We'll see how things work out, though.
In the meantime, I'd better get off to bed. I've been up way too long and I need sleep, so I'll post in the near future. See you soon, folks.
