Through brute force and sheer attrition, my DA page has finally managed to hit 10,000 views. Thanks to all who have contributed to making that happen.
And what better way to celebrate than by posting some new content? Admittedly, it's not the story that I had originally intended to work on when I'd posted my last one, but I was in the mood to do a boxing match, so here we are. One advantage that this story has going for it is that it's not as tightly bound to chronological order as some other ideas that I have, so I can really slot it in anywhere I want. As it stands though, I think it's a good fit here relative to works that I've done already and plan to do.
On another note, I've also gone back to my older stories and cleaned up or added links to visual references for the characters that are featured. Thanks Photobucket for making me redo all of that. I had contemplated hotlinking images directly in, but I wasn't sure if that was the right way to go. Technically, I'd be observing DA's policy of not posting non-original work since the material is hosted elsewhere, but it seems to violate the spirit of that rule. Assuming anyone bothers to read this, I'd be interested in hearing strong opinions that people might have on the matter.
