Essential by the power of Console., Male, from A random sewer beneath the Imperial City.

The war against giant ass chapters continues... poorly. Nov 24, 2017

      Your story fucks me up man. I don't think anything fictional has made me so unsettled. Granted, the first time I read it was when I had food poisoning but still. Great job making this as unsettling as Lena Headly makes Cersei evil.

        Nice! As an author, creating feelings within my readers is what it's all ultimately about. What do you think is the thing that most drives the unsettlement in particular?

        So I think what got to me most was Joffrey being exceeding evil at the beginning and the going crazy. The Red Wolf storyline near the beginning was gruesome. Basically all the different ones where Joffrey kills for next to no reason.

        My favorite arcs have been YiTi and the Royal Guards one recently. Thank you for sharing your story with us here. Do you have any interest posting in on AO3 or other sites?

        There'll be a version (slightly revised) posted on FF someday, but beyond that nothing for now.

      Hi Baurus, sorry to hear about the writers block, Purple days is by far and away my favorite on going story on here, take the time you need but please don't abandon this excellent story. Your story writing has come on leaps and bounds since you started, keep up the good work!

        Badly, I'm afraid. Been fighting bouts of author burnout, and progress on the update is glacial. Can't really give you an estimate.

        I figure it'll just take time. A few weeks of writing anything else and hopefully the spark will return.

      Asking about updates would be so much better if we shared a hobby or something. i always feel like i'm being an annoying ass and no combination of words makes up for it. I don't even have any constructive criticism to offer that has not already been said. So i guess good luck in life and hope whatever you are doing works out. Do you happen to have an eta?

      I just binged this entire story, and am currently undergoing withdrawal. I know you probably get this a lot, but this is one of the best works I've read in a long time, and I just have to compliment you for that. That said, do you have any idea how long it's gonna take you to post the next chapter? I know these sorts of dates are finicky sometimes, I really want to know, even if it changes.

        Well, writing is my vacation in a way, I get a lot more done than when I'm back in University :P. Coming up before this week's end will be the start to a mini arc, (3-4 chapter long), so you won't be waiting for long.

      Hi, um, I've been doing a podcast series on how to write fanfiction and I just posted a podcast on Live, Die, Repeat fics where I talk about yours. So, if you want to hear me talk about your fic for ten minutes straight, you can find it on Soundcloud under the creator Byebyebriar or go to the Fanfiction Versus tumblr. Thanks for writing such a great fic.

        By the way, I'm curious about which characters exactly do you think I 'favor' as an author?
        Dec 5, 2017
      4. Witch breaker
        Based Purple Days? Tyrion is clearly your favorite side character. You love Sansa and Ned too. Renly seems like your favorite antagonist but it's hard to tell since you haven't really done much explorations of "villains" in PD. It's hard to tell how much you favor Joffrey because he's is the protagonist. He /has/ to show up each chapter and get the most development.

        Interesting. I think I know why it would seem that way. Thanks for the feedback!

        Damn, good enough i suppose. Oh well it will come when it comes i guess. I wish i was a good enough writer to offer something more substantial. Sorry i'm just that terrible with writing and encouragement.
        Can't wait to see how not Jofferys(sp) unravels the puzzle of the purple. I swear man your story immersive's me like no other. I treat your story like a good tv show or movie, i always get fucked up and read it.

        While i may not be able to offer critique on the technical aspects of your story, let me just say that your story gives me and countless other neck beards enormous enjoyment. I hope you personally are doing good and if you ever need someone to bounce ideas off of or just curse the world in general Hateme is here, huggable but not lovable. :)

        It's been slow going with the update, so I can't give any definitive dates. Should at least be within the month though.

        Hopefully... I should get something up by the end of next week. After that though... things should start to pick up steam again. Aiming for Late December-Early January levels of update speed if you know what I'm saying.

        Oh FUCK. YES. I have missed PD so goddamn much. Mind, the last update was only two months ago, and I follow and love stories that update only once or twice a year, but this is still really nice to see.

        Edit: Also, going to go and reread it for a second time.
