Update after a long silence. It’s been a while, but I wasn’t doing nothing. I got sidetracked by some new projects and invested time in writing some short stories (below 20,000 words). Three of those are ready for release (the fourth will never be ready, I will keep it in my personal, little smut library). So, here’s the information about them:
A short MCU AU (Alternate Universe). Loki won the battle for New York City (and later the world), S.H.I.E.L.D. went underground and a rather inexperienced female agent is sent to spy on Loki and do some recon in former Stark Tower. Things don’t progress as planned and end in smut. (6,473 Words.)
Another MCU AU (Alternate Universe), trying partially to explain what happened to Odin at the end of “Thor: The Dark World.” Loki’s trick is exposed and he’s sent down to Midgard while Thor (and the rest of Asgard) try to find out what happened to Odin and how Loki came to replace him. He’s placed in the care of Agent Shaw, who sometimes isn’t sure whether to give the God of Mischief a few kicks in his behind or a few hugs. Things only get more complicated after a blizzard and the visit of a raven. No outright smut in this one, but some suggestions. (16,605 Words.)
This one is based on Norse Loki, not MCU Loki, and it might become a little series itself in time. Jane Carter became Jack Carter, so she could survive in more-or-less Victorian London on her own. Living as a freelancing journalist, a penny-a-liner, she stumbles over a job advertisement that’s too good to be true and finds herself in a world beyond the one she always thought was ‘real.’ (16,446 Words.)
Those three stories are done and currently going through the last round of proofreading (hopefully, that is). I’m working on a sequel to Vengeful Ghost already, but it’s in early development, so there’s no point in waiting until it is done as well. I’m also in the middle of a story drawing characters and inspiration from several Gothic and Victorian stories, but it’s not finished yet, either. Unfortunately, Benjamin Farrens has had to take the backseat for a while.
Hopefully, the three listed stories will be released at the beginning of next week. At the outmost, I want them out by the end of the month, which would be the end of next week.
