My sincerest apologies to anyone who was waiting for the next bit of Outlands. Life, as they say, happened. The toddler and the job are both very fun, frantic and fulfilling, and seem to have taken over that vein of creativity that used to drive me to write. I've not touched the word processor since I posted that last chapter, back in - ye gods, that long ago?
My computer contributed to the situation by dying in instalments. I'm now the proud owner of a spanking brand new PC that can run Dragon Age Awakening, Mass Effect 2, The Witcher and many others without breaking a sweat, which is another reason why I've not been writing much these past months *embarrassed cough*...When I finally did get around to unpacking my Word Doc files and sorting them away, several abandoned stories shamed me into kicking my inspiration back into gear and not leaving things unfinished. Hence this chapter and the next, which should be out soon (no, really, I mean it this time), and hopefully others as well. Now, on with the story!Link to all chapters
