FOUR PAGES OF CRISP NEW USABLE STORY WOOT WOOT WOOT.

Still on the first scene shut up.

Speaking of which, I've had an idea. The short version of this idea: rosehannah (because every blessed and/or reasonable variation of "blackribbon" was taken). The long version: Well, I needed a place to post text-only versions of the story, since I'd had a few people in my workshop ask for that, and it's better to use a journal than a web page because then I can easily lock entries if I need to pull the story offline, and it's better to use a separate journal from this one because that way I won't be directing outsiders here and having them wander through my personal Kool-Aid looking for the serial. And it's a community journal rather than a personal journal because 1) it can hold more members than a personal journal can friends (not that this will be a problem the way it was with m15m), 2) I'm a lazy cuss who'd rather update a comm from this account than log into a separate one, and 3) because I'm pretty sure Black Ribbon will have a much smaller audience than Movies in Fifteen Minutes, it may be possible to let people to post about things that are reasonably BR-related and yet not actually having to do with the story itself (like just the Victorian era in general, or favorite books set in the period) and just have fun discussing that, because God knows it won't get too many updates from me.

Also, since I'm clearly not finishing the whole installment any time tonight, I'm going to try to just kick the ass of this one first scene. And post it on rosehannah when I'm done. That's why I brought it up.

(Don't wait up for me.)
GALADRIEL SMASH!

I spam you again!

I am TRYING to WRITE up here and I do NOT appreciate Sister Girl badgering me for quiz answers so she can run back in here and start squealing that according to this useless Quizilla shit Kermit the Frog wants to bang me, like, 268 times and now I totally can't remember the sentence I was going to write next. STAB STAB STAB.




P.S. Sister Girl's result was "Johnny Depp." STAB!

Good God, y'all. Eight hours of writing for this. *drapes self across fainting couch*

Next up: what West finds at the hotel. I have a terrible feeling it will be even harder to get through. On the upside, I did a lot of the legwork today while I was at it.

ETA: It finally occurred to me that if you've just been watching me moan and caterwaul and spam LJ this weekend because it's fun to watch me whinge (hey, I try), and not because you have any clue what Black Ribbon is, you're going to need to go here first and settle in with the first three chapters before you head on over to the new journal. Look at it this way: by the time you finish reading, I may have written the next scene in chapter four.
