You Know I Took The Poison

From The Poison Stream

Henching Chapter 2:

The 'restaurant' Dan chose to take her to was an absolute dive of a place. So much so that Jane, after being an unhealthy combination of thoroughly amused and justifiably disgusted, chose to keep her jacket on so that the skin above her strapless top wouldn't touch the back of the grease-covered chair.

For those of you who have an ffnet account this story is posted there as well. Just trying to get it out there for all the people who aren't satisfied with the severe lack of Riddler X OC ness on los internets.
MY DISCLAIMER IS THAT I DO NOT OWN EDWARD OR ANYTHING GOTHAM-Y. I OWN JANE. KINDA. SHE DOES WHAT SHE WANTS BUT I RUN AROUND AND CLEAN UP ALL HER MESSES. SOME MESSES, HOWEVER, ARE KINDA FUN TO CLEAN UP


Characters: Edward Nigma, Jane Cade
Rating: Er... since I think later I drop the F bomb a few times we'll just go with R to be safe. 
         


Jane skipped up the stairs leading to Reynolds public library, trying hopelessly to stay out of the rain. She got to the giant Victorian double doors and hurled herself inside. Once safe from the dastardly precipitation, she leaned back against the stained glass to catch her breath.

It was dreary outside, worse than dreary, it was downright depressing weather. Occasional sleet, and continual rain, the clouds were all one shade of putrid gray… the grass, only just now withering from the cold, couldn't decide if it was still winter, or we were about to plunge into Spring.

These February months were always the worst weather.

*RETURNS!*

So here's the thing. I've just recently gotten through a pretty rough time in my life. In the middle of my sophomore year in college, my fiance and I decided to pick up and move cross-country from Champaign, IL to Boston, MA. The purpose of such a move? The attend Harvard University Extension School, where I will be working on my dual degrees in Public Relations and Forensics. 
continue to read this crap?Collapse )
So, the bad news is that I had to spend the last 8 months of my life working myself into some kind of frenzy in an effort to make enough money to make this happen for us. Well, we're here now and everything appears to be going rather smoothly. I've picked up a rather sweet gig assistant manager-ing at the local House O' Blues, which is an absolutely FANTASTIC aspect of my life currently. 

So in between going to work and school and trying very hard not to spend every cent we make on rent, writing has kind of been forced into the back burner, even though I really do think about A Decent Melody and Suffer the Needle often. I don't intend to leave them unfinished. I'm also working on another short story, but I've resolved not to post it until I have these two completed. 

The good news is that I'm settled and I'm back==hopefully for good this time. I hope this comes as good news to everyone or anyone who may still be reading. I'm not leaving my room tonight until I have a new chapter up for at least one of the two. If anyone has any suggestions for either story, please feel Absolutely Free to leave me a comment or let me know your thoughts. It'd be really helpful considering I've left them for so long. With everything that's been happening, my views on the stories have changed drastically. In a good way, I hope.

Please let me know, and it's great to be back, guys!

sincerely

I promise I'm coming back, for everyone who is reading. There's some stuff going on right now that I have to take care of, but once it's all done and over with, I'll pick up the pen again.

I won't leave you hanging.

So... here's the deal.

I am most definitely NOT leaving "Decent Melody" and "Suffer the Needle" unfinished. It's been crazy around here at my school and I've been working my butt off trying to bring a certain class grade up. So, given that next week is finals week, and this is basically my last chance for it, I'd love to work on the story, but it's taken a back seat. Either way, I'm going to try as hard as I can to get another chapter up for each by the end of the week. Hopefully by tomorrow because there are no classes.

Also, I've been working on another story but I'm in desperate need of a title. The one I have is pretty lame, haha but it's a play on words, which I enjoy. I'm sure I'll think of something, but if anyone has any ideas, I'd be more than happy to hear them.

Okay, so now everything is updated==you all know that I'm NOT done writing this story.

Awesome :D

Thanks for being interested, wo_speaking, because it really keeps me motivated to keep writing knowing someone out there is willing to read it.
