VOTE FOR REDWOOD CROSSING ON TOP WEB FICTION

Asking her to explain herself—namely why she was at her home so late at night—unleashed a gate of babbling Marietta wasn’t prepared for. She dug a knuckle into the base of her ear, the onslaught of sound annoying her to her skull. Marietta would’ve expected this level of blue-in-the-face incoherence from Ellie, not her favorite wolf, but Shreya had a penchant for the unexpected.

“You lost me. It’s late and I need sleep. Good night.” Marietta moved to shut her door.

Shreya slammed her hand over hers. Marietta grimaced, her eyes narrowing. “Get Ellie.”

VOTE FOR REDWOOD CROSSING ON TOP WEB FICTION

“Have I made myself perfectly clear?”

The Elder’s words pierced like sun through thick smoke, the smog consisting of her earlier statements. While Shreya had been gone, Shanti had been whisked off to the foxes in her place. All the blame went to her. And try as Shreya might to inhale and blow away the Elder’s reasonings, she was too choked up to do so.

They’re going to kill her.

VOTE FOR REDWOOD CROSSING ON TOP WEB FICTION

Zinnia Trotter waited a good hour or so before heading into the night.

At the time she’d been walked home (alongside a complaining Ellie), officers were running up and down her street to corral people back into their homes. They didn’t officially call it a curfew, but they might as well have.

Her siblings were sleeping. Fortunately, they’d missed the fervor of excitement, so they were easy for her to wrangle. Her mother was in the rocking chair she rarely moved from, and her father had yet to come home.

Zinnia Trotter recognized those masks, and it was mainly for that reason that she shoved Ellie against the nearest street lamp. Fortunately, in the chaos of everything, no one took notice of her being rough with the heiress. And doubly fortunately, Sunflower misinterpreted it as a “crash into Ellie and pin her in place” game.

“What the hell? That hurt!” She pushed Sunflower away. “What’d you do that for?”

Although things between them were far from perfect, Ellie Navarette took comfort in the direction they were headed. She and Shreya weren’t doomed. As long as she could trust Shreya’s earnest blues, Ellie could still fix everything. It’d take plenty of work, but she was ready for it.

Yeah, we always knew this would be difficult. We’re just going back to square one and upping the difficulty level some more, Ellie thought. Her steps slowed, causing her to trail behind Zinnia and Marietta on their walk back to Stockbrunn. Sunflower stayed near her, taking any and all opportunities to not-so-subtly brush against her arm. Her dog’s whining was only placated by brief hand holding, her excitement preventing her from being restrained for longer than that.

Ellie had ground to make up with her friends, that much was clear. Zinnia, in particular, had gotten the brunt of her piss-poor attitude. If angels were real, then Zinnia must have been one of them. Who else but a divine being could put up with that much ick?

After weeks (months?) of feeling creatively constipated, I’m going to stop being in denial. I need to take a long break from this. Balancing this and work has been…difficult, to say the least. Writing all the time for work just saps me of the energy I need for Redwood Crossing. It was easier to do this when I was in school, but now it feels close to impossible. :\ It’s hard to justify spending time on this when I could be working on paid projects.

That being said, I don’t want to completely give up on this.

We’ll resume September 12th. If there’s still voters around after that, then we’ll continue onwards.

I highly recommend subscribing for an e-mail alert and/or following me on Twitter (which…hasn’t been updated in a year+ but I may get back into it soon).

See ya in September.

Happy 4th of July! The holiday means my unexpected and unplanned hiatus continues… 🙁

Don’t forget you can subscribe to get an e-mail alert when the latest chapter is up.

Also, two things –

  1. I can’t update the sidebar…and I don’t know why, haha. Bear with me.
  2. Does anyone know any good mosquito bite remedies, because this hydrocortizone isn’t cutting it? 🙁

[A/N: Battle Royale AU, featuring remixed and aged-down (or up) versions of characters from Redwood Crossing.]

Ellie’s sneakers streaked through the steadily growing puddle of blood. She would’ve fallen if it wasn’t for Pravaah, Student 19. The taller girl grasped her arm to keep her upright. Her good eye—the other one was concealed under a patch—regarded Ellie with pity.

She knows you won’t make it.

Hey…

I’m sorry. I’ve been feeling very burnt out. But I started writing a bonus chapter thing for fun to get back into the swing of things. I think a combination of me moving & me coming off of a big project at work has done me in. I’ll have the bonus thing up tomorrow. Hopefully we can get back to our usual schedule by next week.

I lost my block of writing time today, which means that there’s not going to be a chapter today. I’ll see if I can do a short bonus chapter later. I’m moving soon, so I’m living in a jungle of boxes at the moment. It’s hard to write like this, but the good news is I just finished a big project so once that burn out clears up, I should be back to this.
