But it looks as though it's going to be necessary. I'm into my second week of the pneumonia, starting to improve by degrees, but now we've run into the problem that happens to all couples. Anissa has it now. *sigh* There have only been less than 1,000 words written since the beginning of last week. So I'm going to go ahead and call it now, as much as it kills me to do it. We're going to have to take another week while Anissa gets better because the current chapter has a huge action sequence in it that's going to need both of us fully on-board to manage.

Sorry, guys. I'm going to say look for the next post from us on September 1. Until then, we'll be trying to get well and plot to have things up and rolling by then.

Okay, so there will be no chapter this holiday weekend. Anissa's birthday's coming up next weekend and she's requested that we just work on easy projects, which include working on future fic and making changes and adaptions to notes. And this gives us time to plot what happens next in ATU a little tighter.

However, you will have a chapter for you before we leave for her three-day birthday mini-vacation next Friday.

Sorry, guys, but who was I to refuse a birthday request from my co-author?

Love you all!

No worries, everyone. We just got up late since we were working on the chapter into the wee hours. Been a rough week around here. It should be up within the hour. I'm just doing a final polish.

Okay, Then

We'll DEFINITELY be posting tonight. We worked last night once we got my FIL to bed and we're likely down to the last hundred or so words. Would have posted last night, likely, but we didn't want to rush the ending. Things are certainly moving along on that fic, to be sure. ;)

See you guys tonight when I get in from work. May be later this evening before it's up, but it's coming before midnight my time. Promise.

Guess what's back in the works? Across the Universe will be back on its posting schedule as of Saturday. The next chapter is nearly finished. :D

Now to get Love and Other Headaches back in gear and we'll be full-steam ahead!

Annnnd I'm about to do something completely unprecedented. Something I REALLY didn't want to do.

For the last week, I've been fighting what feels like a strain of the flu and it's pretty much kept me out of work and offline. Miserable from head to toe and just barely feeling like I'm existing. Well, I'm just now back at work and trying to get back to a normal routine, nevermind that I've been going to bed early and sleeping really late. If I'm lucky, I'll be back to 100% by the weekend.

However, Anissa started falling prey to it this evening. And it's hitting her hard, where most colds and viruses don't really stick to her.

The bad part? We've only gotten a little bit of ATU underway because she's been having to look after me this week and I've been no help whatsoever. We know where it's going and what needs to be done for it, but there's no way that we're going to catch up in time. NONE. So, we're forced to hold off for a second week in a row.

No one worry. This isn't any kind of sign that we're stopping anything for good, just that we've both been in a really bad way and need the chance to rest and recoop before we dive back in. I don't expect that we'll miss another deadline and we plan to try to have the first chapter of Love and Other Headaches to you,then, as well, but it will most certainly be out by the end of the month.

As always, we love you all and thanks for understanding! We'll be back just as soon as we can!

I just got a text telling me that we're going to be receiving 700 pieces of freight nightly this week at the job.

For those of you that don't work retail, that's a lot. Especially if you only have a four-man crew to work it and then backstock it at night and you're part of that crew. Don't fool yourselves that BB&B has a separate cleaning and stock crew. It's all done by the employees you see working through the store. WE are the ones that do all of it.

I tell you this because there's NO WAY that we're going to manage an Across the Universe chapter this week with me under the gun like this. We also have the opener to Love and Other Headaches to get finished and to beta and I don't know if we'll manage that either, even with it more than a third done.

Start week on LaOH, BTW, is being stated as November 19. It would be sooner, but all of the RL stuff keeps mucking with us. But rest assured, the muses are wide-awake and talking. It's just the fact that I'm not home enough to keep the ball rolling as much as I'd like.

So, yeah. No ATU this week, but it shall return next Saturday. LaOH is set to roll out on Saturday the 19th.

[livejournal.com profile] saavikam77, we're still full-steam-ahead on our stuff as it's bouncing back and forth. And it's the only thing keeping me sane. *smishes*

I know that the radio silence has been making some people worried [I've had a couple of PMs], but I'm not going anywhere. There's just been a lot going on lately, I've been sick, we're in planning up to our elbows for both Across the Universe and Love and Other Headaches, not to mention setting up Blood Will Tell, as well. We have a LOT of projects coming up this Fall and Winter. Stay, the final part of the Tales of the Multi-verse, is also forthcoming.

There are also a few locked posts right now for videos and such that I'm running by my beta team for the upcoming projects. So yep, I'm here and not going anywhere. It's just that I have too many things going on at once and too many spoilers I'm trying to keep to myself to post all the time.

That said, I miss the chance to reply on everything lately. I promise to get caught up soon. But, replying or not, I'm still reading, so I'm keeping up with you all, even if it doesn't easily show.

*snugs her f-list tight*

It's the Voice of DOOM here with an announcement. 

This week's chapter of Across the Universe will be delayed.  What we'll probably do is post 2 weekends in a row to get back on track.  I've had some real-life issues and the muse basically ran and hid.

Lois and I are gonna have a long plotting talk tonight, and maybe if I can get my ass in high gear the chapter will come out earlier than next weekend.  But at this point I'd rather say "expect next Saturday" than commit to an earlier day, since the gods are laughing at me.

All shall be revealed and all drama at an end when I end the semi-hiatus Sunday night. I HOPE.

've never been so glad to see the end of a two-week period in my life. Now that everything's starting to fall back into place, I'm going to get caught up on the F-List and start replying back to comments. It's just been one HELL of a two-week period. 

Also, as Sessions had to be delayed until Tuesday, we're also going to delay Across the Universe until next Saturday. After all the smoke cleared on Wednesday, we realized that we only had three pages on the chapter. And considering the subject, I figure you guys would appreciate it more if it were just a bit longer. Expect the spoiler as soon as I have enough to choose from. :D

  • What the hell is up with Sudden Attack Muscular Issues and Sudden Attack Sinus Issues? It doesn't feel like a cold or virus, but I'm just miserable. It's just weird. Been fighting this for two days now. Not a clue what it is.
  • Why is it that I'm finding myself interested in products I can only get in England or Europe? I just keep finding myself drooling over products from Original Source and there's no distributors for it here in the US. Not to mention the smaller department stores brands of cosmetics. Seriously, what's wrong with me? *headdesk*
  • Dr. Elliot Marrin is a picky (but brilliant) little muse who talks to us when he feels like it. He's going to cooperate thus far, but I get this feeling that my Lois muse is going to start threatening him shortly. Good thing I have his ex on-tap, huh? The first chapter of Sessions: From the Notes of Dr. Elliot Marrin goes live this Saturday.
  • Cut For Those Who Remain Unspoiled On Man of Steel ) Now, to just implant the Rashida bug in his brain.
  • Full-steam ahead on Across the Universe. It'll be out on-time next Saturday.
  • I desperately want to crawl back into bed and die, but I have to head to work. I just have to make it today and tomorrow.

  •  A weekend off with zero stress, as we're house-sitting.
  • Exploring a new place, as we're going to Ellaville for the day. It's a ghost town an hour and a half outside of Jax. Looks gorgeous. Expect pics this evening.
  • Fresh, hot crack from SV. I'm not sure what I LOLed at harder. I LOVVVvvED the lemur. Not least because it's a certain fandom someone's favorite default icon. *winks at [livejournal.com profile] kabuki_party * And unlike everyone else, the ending wasn't a huge blow to my morale. You know what? I've seen it coming for a while now and I'm okay with it. So long, Allison. I only wish you the best with your career. NOW, on with the plot, PLEASE! Only a few episodes to go. And I'm eagerly awaiting finding out just which Swann is coming back. :D
  • The next chapter of Across the Universe is nearly done, Sessions will be ready on time next Saturday, and the bunneh is a busy little thing. I think it's going to be a good spring and summer for our fans. :D
  • Also, I get Monday with Mom, Dad, and Boo. I'm a happy girl. :D
So, F-List, whatcha up to this weekend?

And, while I have you here, CRAAAAAAAAACK! OMFG, SV, I LOVE YOU THIS DAMN MUCH!
