A Notice About The Completion Of C, CD

OK,I know that I should probably have Chapter 31 up by now. The fact that I don't even have the Follow Up blog post for Chapter 30 posted yet tells you something about the chaotic hell that is my life right now.

My external hard drive crashed. It had everything on there. EVERYTHING! I'm talking every last picture and video for JRFB, every chapter of C, CD, JPOV, every outtake, the alternative ending, the two epis, and my entire iTunes library. I basically have to rewrite everything I had already written and re-download everything I've ever downloaded.. FML

The external hard drive I bought to replace the original also crashed. At least I only had half of what I lost from JRFB and the alternate ending on there.

My computer. Fucking. Crashed. I wish I was joking, but I'm not. I had to out on Saturday at 8 in the freckin morning to buy a laptop. But I'm glad I did, though. Her name is Weiss, and she only cost me $450. She's pretteh and is giving Suzy stiff competition as my best friend. Don't tell Suzy I said that, though!

I'm moving. Back to NYC. One day before the Monkeys concert. It was pretty much a last minute decision even though I've been talking about it forever. In less than two weeks, I have to find a job, an apartment, and pack everything to move.

JRFB is taking over my life! With the band signing a deal, going on tour, and with his royal hottness joining Twitter, I literally have no free time to do anything. Now that I have the laptop, I'm not working at work. I'm doing JRFB shit at work. Good thing I already gave my notice. It's not like they can fire me, right? Right?! O_O

I'm still writing and betaing. It's taking me a bit, but I am writing Chapter 31. If all goes well, and I don't hit any more snaffoos, I'll have Chapter 31, the alternate ending, and the two epis done and posted by mid-June. I know it's a ways away, but I have a o/s I have to write by May 11th for a charity compilation, and I also have the final 6 chapters of C, CD to write in Jackson's POV for another charity compilation.

So, I'm sorry about the lack of anything having to do with C, CD lately. I'm trying to do 8 gazillion things all at once. For those of you who still read C, CD and actually give a shit as to how it ends, I promise I'll get my ass in gear and get things up and running soon. You're still going to get Jackson POV updates every Monday and Thursday til Chapter 25.


Con Amor Siempre,

Chapter 30 Teaser!

I don't even have an intro for this teaser, so here ya go:

“Hey,” he said, worry across his face. “Kelly said you were freaking out. What’s going on?”

“I can’t do this,” I mumbled.

He sighed and closed the door, leaning against it. He stared at me for a bit and then walked over, taking my face in my hands.

“Cold feet?”

“Sorta,” I sighed.

I didn’t wanna see the look of disappointment on his face, so I kept my eyes on his chest. And then I realized just how good he looked.

“Nice suit.”

“Oh, you know. Special occasion and all,” he chuckled.

His arms went around my waist, holding me in a tight hug. I automatically buried my face in his neck.

“If it’s too soon, you don’t have to do it. You can try later.”

I hugged him a little tighter, because that was exactly what I needed to hear. He was giving me the option of backing out. But when I really thought about it, I couldn’t see myself not doing it. The nerves would be there, obviously, but it’d be over quickly.

“No,” I said, shaking my head. “I’m ready now. I guess I just needed reinforcements.”

He stepped away from me and gave me a quick kiss. I smiled when he pulled away, sighing and then finally opening my eyes.

“You look beautiful, by the way,” he smirked.

“Special occasion and all,” I joked.

He chuckled and ran his hands through his hair.

“You ready?”

I jumped up and down a bit, hoping not to break my ankles with the heels I had on, shook my hands out, and cracked my neck.

“Let’s do this,” I nodded.

“Whatever you say, Rocky,” he laughed, taking my hand and leading me out.

I'm still writing the chapter, but I'm hoping to get it out on Saturday like I planned. Right now, it's a little under 9K words, but there's still a few things to include.

Tomorrow: Extra Goodies post. Saturday: Chapter 30 post.


Con Amor Siempre,
Iris

P.S. For those that may not know, I started posting Jackson's POV from Closer, Cold Desert on FFn. If you like, feel free to stroll on by and take a look HERE.
