Hi all. I'm not really one for introductions, but I guess I should say how I found my way here? I was randomly browsing some story sites, and stumbled across Morpheus' stuff (really like Absinthe!) and then from there, started looking around for more things set in the same universe. I love the Kayda stories, despite Elrod's joy in heaping endless abuse on the poor girl, and Whisper is great too. Though thanks to some stories just not really interesting me I tend to be kinda off on some stuff that gets referenced in the stories I read, since I missed the background in another story. Such is the pains of a shared canon.

Uh, yeah. Guess I got kinda rambly there, didn't I? Once again, hi!

G'day eh. Welcome pull up a chair and all that.

Yeah Whateley universe is a big sprawling mass of great tales, and stories to. It can be daunting to jump in to but it's well worth it. I know I'm behind on my stories to, so don't worry, just enjoy.

Many people hear voices when no-one is there.
Some are called 'mad' and shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day.
Others are called 'writers' and they do pretty much the same thing.

Hey! I'm mostly done with the angsty-stuff for Kayda! Read "Medicine Girl" and you'll see!
Well, mostly. Kind of. Sort of. Maybe :whistle:

Come on Elrod tell the truth. We all know that torturing Kayda is like crack for you.
Welcome Dire. While Morpheus and Elrod are two of the more talented writers here, take the time to dip into all the stories, each of the writers have their unique talents and characters.

Well, welcome to the forum where there is presents under the tree (watch out for bird droppings) as with those writers who are gnawing at their teeth to hear how well their stories are received. Don't worry about rambling, I fear you have not gone that far and need more practice. For many they'll either look at it as a TL:DR message or if they read through it found that it helped them to sleep at night although they might get a crick in the neck having slumped over the keyboard or such as they dozed off reading about the wanton antics of some obscure rambling idiot who's text that has no other meaning then to say Hello.

Go through the stories, have a hanky for the Kayda stories, or a bucket perhaps (for her) as with a few other assortment of gadgets, to protect you from the antics of other writers (a helmet perhaps for when you read about Tink and her embellishment of facts that happen around the academy). Be aware of the tunnels that close at night and scream at dawn. Beware the teachers that snatch at those who are late to class but had not class to be.

Kalu Kala for the food you see at the luncheon room to leave your mouth a watering as its the best meal to be seen but only served to Ayla.

So pull up a chair, a couch and a few drinks (your call) and leave a kind note to those for whom you read.

As always be sure to take a gander at the words of wisdom written by our founder of this site; Kristen and Warren to I'm sure. That's the rules for those who don't understand. But enough of that. On with the stories.

What is - was. What was - is.

I've read a fair bit of your stuff that you've put over on bigclosetr as well. Fun stuff! Looking forward to continuations of Shattered Glass and A Light in the Dark. I wasn't sure if the Tink story was done yet or not, either. No idea if you've got them anywhere else, I don't think I saw them here?

Thanks.
Everything in Big Closet is here, and usually the ones here are better edited.
Tink is a long term project, so it goes in arcs. Currently she's still about to go to a F3 party to start off her two big long term things. In Big closet it's all in one story, but here they're set as individual arcs/chapters.

Where are they hiding here? They're not in canon stories, unless I've gone totally blind, and when I try to look at the fan fiction section I get nothing at all.

Go to the Tunnels section of the forum, and look for the Fabrications Lab. That's where all the fanfic goes iinitially. After it's completed and heavily edited, theres a chance it will go into the Fanfiction section where it gets better publicity. So far nothing has made it there yet, although there are several writers trying to get in there and should be popping up in a bit.
