A Child of God; it's up at my website and 852 (I never can get italics to work at 852. WHY??? But at least I got the chapter dividers to work for me this time, avoiding the mess I made when I posted Wind Whispering and Chasing Rainbows. ::shakes head with the horror::)


Blair's search for his father uncovers a dark, long hidden secret.


It takes place after Spare Parts and is a sad little tale of dirty secrets and massive angst. And it's slash - not hugely so, but there is some J/B sex in it, so be warned if that's not your thing. There are other warnings too, as i say, this is a fairly angsty tale.

This is the story I wrote for the very wonderful Mariojoe, who won it for Moonridge 2006. her patience and kindness knows no bounds.

I just finished my latest fic - the one for mariojoe, the one she won for Moonridge 2006  (yup, it's only taken me a year to write ::hangs head in abject shame::)

OK, so... this story has quite a lot of first person in it, mostly in third, but switching into 1st from time to time, with the entire first chapter in 1st P; three voices. Now I know when you're reading it, that it should be apparent that it's moved into 1st, and who is talking, but should the formatting reflect that, do you think? I'm just experimenting with italics, different fonts, indenting pars - I'm just not sure...

Italics are probably the easiest, most recognisable way to separate out the 1st P sections, but I'm wondering if that's going to be too hard on the eyes when there are thousands of words of this (almost 3,000 continuous words in the first chapter alone)? - I'm wondering whether it's not better to just leave it all the same and let the narrative passages speak for themselves?

Any advice received with gratitude. (o:
