After a whole lot of discussion in our fan fiction forums, we have some good ideas and some goals to set/work on. The first couple votes for the fan fiction authors are up and will run through this week. As the numbers start to add up, if it looks clear votes are going to pass; I'll add a few more and start to add some complexity into the set up of what we're doing. By next Monday, I hope to be able to share the news and plans with the community at large.
In the meantime, we have one final section of "I Don't Think We're in Kansas Anymore" to share with everyone. This is the last part of the three introduction stories (Calimari, Road To Whateley, and Kansas) of the First Year core story cycle. From here out, we move into stories that are less likely to bounce from perspective to perspective and focus on just one character (or a small group). The next story in the Core cycle will be "Good Cop/Bad Cop" which I am writing (and will be from Shieldwall's perspective). Gen 2 authors will continue to offer other side (and back) story options, as we move forward.
