Well, I finally managed to get the second chapter uploaded, though I had to make a sacrifice in that it had to be split in two parts.

Over-all, I think I've learned some important lessons tonight:

-DA's uploading options are obviously designed to discourage the uploading of serious prose literature, rather the encourage it.

-DA is not equipped to handle texts longer then a short novelette at best, let alone anything in the general size of a novella.

-DA's uploading screen is dishonest, telling me a file is of adequate size when it is in fact too large to actually display.

About here I'd make some sarkastic crack about how DA obviously hates prose literature. But I honestly don't have the energy: it's early in the morning and I've been up all night trying to get my story to work the way it's supposed to.

Anyway, it probably isn't true. We prose authors aren't hated, just underestimated and neglected. It's a big site, so it's understandable. But it's also very sad. Because we're artists too, and our craft is every bit as evolved, revered, wonderous, subtle, delicate, vibrant, and grand a discipline as any other.

If we are allowed to practice and develope it to our full ability, that is.

Anders - where have you been?
Oh, same place I've always been.
Lurking, hmm?

Please, pleaaaaase tell me you remember the guy that did the female renders of the guilty gear characters. >.< I NEED TO KNOW WHO HE IS!!!
Ah, sorry. I did find his webpage at one point but it was all in Japanese. Plus it was a couple of years back. Wish I could help, but all I know is he vanished from DA and I haven't seen anything of him since.

A shame, really, because I liked his art too.
Also, thanks for the song in the Theme Song thread in Rumbles!

Happy birthday, Ghostie!

Also, I like what I've read of the Queen And The Cauldron so far.

Methinks you have a bright future as a writer. ;)
