Not so easy this time

I decided to try my luck with another set of random story ideas for The Great Random Xander Story - Iteration TWO (not one). I'm still writing Iteration One, but I did a little work on Iteration Two. Unfortunately, I have no idea if I can continue this story, because the combination of ideas (I've already gotten to the second idea, which shows you how different this set is) is just not very compatible. If I do write it, it's probably going to wind up being very short and kind of stupid.

Part of me thinks I should scrap it and just generate a new set, but that would be cheating. So I may post a very short, and possibly very weird/depressing GRXS-IT2 soon.

(I'm also thinking that I may have to remove a few ideas from the list due to them being crossovers with stuff I know virtually nothing about. I haven't fully decided on that one yet, but I'll let you guys know if I remove them so that they people who submitted them can submit new ideas instead.)

It's interesting to me that GRXS-IT1 has been relatively simple to write. The idea was nice and simple but with far-reaching consequences, and I've just been flowing off of that since the start. With this story I really have no idea what I'm going to do or how I'm going to fit it all together.

Fic: The Great Random Xander Story - Iteration One (14b/?)

Once again, this installment was too long for a single entry, but I consider it one part. Really though, the installments themselves are really pretty arbitrary. I'm not really writing this to be read as serialized installments, I'm just kind of letting it flow and stopping at what seems to be natural stopping points whenever I can. Hence the somewhat disjointed nature of these installments.

Anyway, I guess this is still a little NSFW, although I don't think this installment is too heavy on that.

Also, in case you were wondering, there are still TWO random ideas yet to come in this story. Yes, we've gone a long time now with just the first idea, but rest assured there are two more curveballs coming eventually. I just won't say when, and I have no idea what they will be.

Fic: The Great Random Xander Story - Iteration One (13/?)

Yet another NSFW installment, folks. Please believe me when I say I didn't plan for this story to be quite so full of the sex, but somehow it just kind of snuck its way in there. Enjoy, I guess.

Oh, also, a few quick things:

1. If you made a submission to the list of random ideas recently, check back because I just made my responses and I need clarification from some people.

2. If you submit anonymously, leave some kind of pen-name! Crikey, I'm getting tired of adding "Anonymous 15" to the list of credits. Make one up, I don't care.

3. If you have yet to submit an idea, please: no more "Xander dresses as character X just like at Halloween" ideas. I already allowed way too many on the list, and really, haven't we all had enough of this plot device? Let's move on.

I return!

First off, thanks for everyone's well wishes. I had a rough couple of days but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things. With luck, I'll get the next installment finished soon. If you haven't already, go here and leave your idea for the Great Random Xander Story, because I don't plan on stopping when Iteration One is over, and I think there are a few people out there who are also planning on writing a GRXS.

Also, if you recently (like, within the last two weeks or so) posted an idea, I finally got around to responding to them, so check back since I needed clarification from some people.

I'm also thinking I may start up a Great Random Buffy List soon, so start thinking of ideas for Buffy-centric stories. I'm still debating about whether I'll break them up into categories, so it'll be a while yet before we make the actual list.

No update for a few days

There won't be any fic updates for the next few days, barring some kind of miracle. Technically speaking I'm supposed to be in the hospital right now, but since they don't actually have any room, it means I'm just kind of suffering through while I wait for a bed to free up. If I'm lucky, I'll be coming out of this latest ordeal a little healthier and better able to write, but I can't say for sure. What I can say is that I'm not making writing a priority until at least this weekend, so in all likelihood it'll be monday before I'm even close to getting anything new posted.

Fic: The Great Random Xander Story - Iteration One (11b/?)

Yes, despite the fact that he's in maybe 20% of this story, this is still the Great Random Xander Story. Also, we're still in semi-NSFW territory, although most of that is just people talking about sexy stuff rather than actually doing sexy stuff. IF one were rating such things, one might call it rated R, but I of course am above such petty ratings and will never admit to such a thing.

Enjoy the every increasing insanity.

I'm doing two installments today, with each being smaller than the average installment. This is because I can't actually fit today's update into a single post (stupid LJ size limits) and I feel that this should all be read as one installment. So consider this Installment 11a and 11b.
