Journey to the City of Endless Night: Chapter Eighty One (This is NOT a Drill. It's for REAL)


It's sure been an awfully long time. In fact, it's been almost SIX years. I know. Crazy after all this time to go ahead and do this. I feel it's time, though. I had orginally planned on not releasing a single chapter until I had the story totally completed, but I've got about eight chapters already written and hope to have four to five more done sooner than later. I've debated a lot lately about posting or not posting and i've decided to post. It's been fun writing these chapters, and it's not as fun when they're mostly kept to myself.

So, where did the inspiration come from? In about July, doggieearlover nudged me with a very encouraging review for Journey. I had planned on re-reading the Belgariad about the time she sent the review, so one thing led to another and I found that the story was calling to me again. It's been fun working on it again. So, thank her for these new chapters.

The thing is, though, to keep myself from feeling overwhelmed by a need to update frequently, I'm hoping I can post a new chapter a month for a least a year. I'm about four chapters short of that goal right now, but I figure I have at least eight months to work on those four to keep to the schedule. That's fairly doable, I think.

So far, I'm thinking I'll stick to just and AFF. They were the primary posting sites back in the day for Journey, so it makes sense. If, however, someone wants to help portage Journey to Arhcive of Our Own with a code or whatever it is you need to post over there, I wouldn't mind taking the whole epic mess that way, too.

All in all, it's been a delight returning to some of my old friends. It's like that world just sat patiently waiting for me to come back to it and pick up right where we left off. As you can see by my icon choice, this is a Rin-centric chapter. (Hint, Rin's still by far my favorite of the Inuyasha series) I know when I left off on Journey we had left her and our poor Demon Lord, Sesshomaru, in quite a bit of hot water. Why don't you head over to or AFF (or both if you're inclined!) and find out just what happened to her.

Leave a review, leave a comment here, whatever you like.
