BHS Blogress Report: 2018, Week 34 – “YOU F—ING mONSTER”

Week 35 – “YOU F—ING mONSTER”

The title for this week’s Report is the exact, verbatim reaction VDrake had when I first told him about one of the most devastating plot developments I had in store for Shattered Skies… That was something like two years ago, to give you an idea of exactly how far I plan this stuff in advance.
However, when it came time to actually write said scene, it turned out to be one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It was far more raw and emotional than I expected, and I had to draw on some of my worst memories for inspiration, which… well. It’s a damned good thing the scene turned out like it did, because it was a legitimate concern of mine that if it came off as a cheap tearjerker or anything less than sincere, if I either overplayed or underplayed that moment, or any of the other raw moments in this chapter for that matter, it could derail my entire story. I was more nervous about posting Chapter 37 than I have been posting anything else in at least a year.
The response was worth it, fortunately. I already told some of you how I changed my mind and decided to end the chapter on an uplift… and now I’m so glad I did. I wasn’t expecting the new ending to get the most response, given everything else that happens… but hey, I’m happy it worked.
I have almost all the footage I need for Silent InvenTOYry Episode 08 shot, except for two scenes that will require some extra preparation and craftwork. My target date for uploading the ep is next Tuesday, so providing my materials get here in the mail within the week, I should be on track.
And after that, plus this month’s Tasakeru chapter… I’m seriously considering doing a one-shot Boku no Hero Academia fic about Uraraka. My precious cinnamon roll needs more love. I’m still trying to make up my mind in terms of plot, but we’ll see.
