Voila! I have edited (as well as walked the dog, eaten dinner, and done some general putting away of random household stuff), and here is chapter 4 of "More or Less the Same," in which I explore what might happen to a new vampire during season 4 of BtVS. No Mary-Sues, I promise; Anna is about 85% me and her human family is about 70% my family, but I'm doing my absolute best to write people realistically, flaws and all.

I've had several years worth of therapy for depression and related issues. I think I have a pretty good grasp of my flaws. :-)

More or Less the Same, 4 )

Am now off to work some more on "Apartment Manager."

Todd's still doing a lot of exposition, but I cut out some irrelevant bits of information and he now at least has something of a personality mixed in with the long-winded explanations. *sigh* I realize exposition is necessary when dealing with a main character who knows nothing, but it's still irritating.

So here were are:

I said this was going to be chapter 3. Actually, it turns out that it works better to just add the new material to chapter 2 and start chapter 3 at the meeting with Tyler's clan. So behold, the new chapter 2 -- now three times as long as before!

A while ago I posted the first piece of a behind-the-scenes fic for season 4 of BtVS, mostly about a new vampire learning the ropes of unlife while the Sunnydale underground is in chaos. Two major players -- the Order of Aurelius and the Mayor -- are gone, and the Initiative has moved into town. So what's it like to live in the Sunnydale night during that year?

More or Less the Same II )

There's another vignette associated with this story, The Vampire and Her Family, written for a [livejournal.com profile] 15minuteficlets word.

So a week or two ago Anna Metzger, a nice young vampire, decided I was going to tell her story, since my family bore strange resemblances to hers. (Yeah, yeah, this is a self-insert to insanely large degrees. Deal.) Here she tells a little about her human family. Loosely set in BtVS season 4, but no spoilers whatsoever.

ETA: The characterizations here may not completely match the ones in the main story, More or Less the Same, but they're close enough to be a useful glipse of Anna's human family.
