The Jascian's Toy - 15


I meant to post the above when I uploaded Chapter 14 of The Jascian's Toy but never got the chance, so I'm posting it now. ;)

Chapter 15 is up! It turned out shorter than planned, but when I hit that last line, I knew that's where it had to end. Putting little asterisks at the bottom to start a new scene would have weakened its emotional punch.

Originally I was going to write chapter 16 before posting 15, but given my current schedule delaying 15 just seemed mean.

You can read the new installment at: http://rowanmcbride.com/stories/serials/. It should be making its way through the Nifty mirrors soon. As always, feedback is welcome in the comments section.

I hope you enjoy Chapter 15.

Thank God!!! I check this site two to three times a week and have for nearly two years just to see if this story was updated!!! I have been hanging on to your new years resolution to complete this story line this year. :-)

Loved it, thank you, please don't stop....already waiting with baited breath. And while it was short is rather have that than nothing!!

I was out of town when this got posted and now that I'm back it's the best coming home present ever! Already read it twice. I don't mind that's its shorter, because the writing is so delightful it really makes me savor it. Jascian's Toy is one of my favorite stories of yours, along with Michael Finally Grows Up. Thanks so much!

@6aed660a-f8ab-11e1-a698-000bcdcb471e : Dude. While I appreciate the web hits, checking that many times a week is way too stressful! Join my newsletter, yeah? You can set it up so that it *only* sends you story update announcements by clicking "special notices" for your mail delivery choice. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rowan_mcbride/

Awww. I didn't mean it that way. I was just so excited. I check the site religiously but I enjoy all your stories and blogs and, thanks to you, Pocky too! Jascians Toy is what led me to you and I appreciate your craft in all it's forms and look forward to continue mildly stalking your page :-)

@Anon - Haha. As long as you're doing it out of excitement and not stress, I'm happy. Mildly stalk away. XD

PS: November will be here soon. Pepero Day! W00t!
