Hey guys! It’s Anony here, just popping in to bring ya’ll a few updates.. Sorry I’ve been so AWOL lately-on both here and the forums. Life’s gotten so crazy. I’ve been balancing four AP classes, working on the play, a social life, and preparing for this weekend’s homecoming dance (SO EXCITED!!). I’ve gotten this next generation mostly plotted out, but I’ve just had a lot of trouble finding time to write it. Sorry if I’ve fallen behind with keeping up on stories, too.. I’ve been reading before I go to bed or if I have time during my release block, but sometimes it’s not enough.
I really really hope to update sometime in these next couple of weeks, but I think that my update schedule is going to have to be pushed back to once every few weeks, at least until break. I will post an preview and maybe pictures of the toddlers grown up, but the latter will have to wait until Sunday or Saturday morning.
In the meantime, though…
The sharply dressed man opened his mouth. All other thoughts left the room. “It has come to our attention,” said the man, “that the world is coming to an end.”
“Hasn’t he read the previous chapters?” groaned Young Watson. “Everybody knows that.”
“Shut up!” snapped Scarlett.
The man on the screen continued. “After a great deal of testing, philosophizing, and deductive reasoning, we have determined the cause.”
“The homosexuals,” said Young Watson dryly. “It’s always about the homosexuals.”
“There’s nothing wrong with homosexuals,” said Scarlett. She was rather knowledgeable on the subject. “The men are just a bit boring in the…”
“Scarlett!” cried Daisy.
Scarlett rolled her eyes and Daisy clucked her tongue and Rose dreamt about sheep and Young Watson furrowed his brows and the man on the television began to speak once more. “Supernaturals have shot the world’s normality meter. Unless a cure to their unusual conditions is created“ -he paused dramatically- “the world will come to an end.”
This, of course, was utterly wrong, but was to be expected from a Public Service Announcement. The world was coming to an end; this was easily evidenced by the lack of dolphins frolicking about the sterns of oceanliners. Yes, the universe had determined that Earth’s time was ticking to a close. However, the creatures of the night had little do with any sort of apocalypse planning. The advertisement on the television, despite the usual honesty and truthfulness of the average commercial, was a lie. The general public was too gullible to see this. Young Watson was not the general public.
He knew how to use this to his advantage.
Hope you guys are having a lovely fall, and hope to get this update out sometime soon!
