Good Morning, Ya'll!!
The Submissions for Arc 1: Seles is Chosen, Chapter 1 has been sent! If you did not receive the submissions or cannot open them, please run to the Help! Thread, PM me at BabyKatSnophlake, or email snophoenix at gmail dot com. The deadline for voting is:
Saturday June 20th at Midnight MST.
When voting, please REPLY to the email sent with Submissions and add "Vote" to the end of the subject line so it reads:
Arc 1, Chapter 1, Submissions: Vote
Failure to do so will result in a stern look from Lady Kat who will incessantly bat at your mouse and nip at your heels. I just want everyone to get into the habit of doing this because later down the road as more people wish to join, my inbox can get very hectic. (In fact, after I posted the prologue I got a nice taste of busy-ness that I am TOTALLY not used to... @.@ All I can say is thank God SP has its own inbox.)
If you need more time to vote, don't hesitate to let me know. I am more than fair about extensions. ^-^
Anyway, Also note that the Polls Thread has a new poll! The poll is NOT where you vote for submissions. The poll is also not due until we are finished with our current Arc: Seles the Chosen. This poll is about the next arc. Think about what you'd like to get into next, and then vote for one when you're ready. I have not enabled multiple votes so please, vote carefully. After everyone votes, or after Seles the Chosen is finished (whichever comes first), I will tally the votes and announce the new winning Arc.
Great job, everyone! This looks like it will be a success!! However, bear in mind that the submission that is posted from here on out WILL NOT be beta'd and changed. So please, vote for the one that goes in the direction you want it to go in for the next chapter.
I think that's all for now. If not, well, I'll fix it later.

LADIES AND GENTLEMENS! We have officially posted our Chapter 1, so you know what that means? It's time to move on to Chapter 2! Follow Sagie's lead and write what you think should happen next. You have until Saturday July 18th to send in your submissions to Snophoenix at gmail dot com. Ya'll did great with following the request to use this format when sending submissions:
Arc 1, Chapter 2: Submission
Though I decided the Chapter title if you so choose to put it is completely optional. I'm going all right with just what's above. Keep it up guys and ya'll get cookies, ne? ^-^ Also, if Saturday July 18th comes too soon, as always, you are welcome to beg for an extension (or threaten one...)
In other news, V is giving us a new playground! You could find Here except FF.N is picky, so I'll spell it out for you:
http: // sites dot google dot com/site/nestofsnophoenix/Home
It's not finished yet, but it's sure purdy! ^-^
And lastly: If you have not yet voted for our next arc, feel free to go to the Polls thread and make a selection. Though if some of you could share the same brainwaves that would be awesome, because right now all the topics with a vote are tied with one vote. ^-^'' I might have to change this somehow...

I'm honestly a bit surprised... I gave everyone a deadline of three weeks, I was told it was too long and we all wanted one week, so I changed it and I suppose not everyone was on the same page. I'm doing something wrong here and I think that it's just me not being as informative as I should be. So here's the dealio. I am sending an email and posting all of my announcements. I am doing as V suggested and emailing everyone the last three days of any and all deadlines to ensure that everyone knows what's going on. And lastly, with each announcement of the new deadline for the next chapter, I'm including and update on the chapters, so you know what to write next. But because of all this extra work, I'm adding a bit more time between chapters so that I will have enough time to write up summaries, emails, and post announcements. Don't worry, it's not significant amount of time, it's just time enough for me to keep up with what's going on.
So. At this point, we are working on chapter 3 of our story. As V was our only submission writer, his chapter wins chapter 2's slot by default. V is the ONLY person who will not be allowed to submit a chapter for voting, this coming round. So by all means, V, if you'd like to write one just for kicks and giggles, go ahead, I won't stop you. (in fact, that would be fun! I highly encourage it...)
Anyway, the highlights: Lloyd arrived in Meltokio and purchased a room at the inn under the name Lloyd Aurion. Then he was headed for the Wilder Mansion when he bumps quite literally into Seles Wilder, who introduces herself as the Chosen of Tethe'alla. She excuses herself and leaves, but first takes with her, Lloyd's first name. Lloyd wanders up to the castle where the guards refuse his entry, but instead refers him to the church, where the Pope would see him first.
In Chapter 2, Lloyd met Zelos, a much younger, shy kid. Lloyd snuck into the Pope's room, locking it, and found the antidote in the drawer. Then he slipped through the passageway to the Castle and dressed in armor to hide his identity. He relieved the current guard on duty and was standing guard when the door to the king's chamber opened, and Hilda, the Pope, and Zelos emerged. While Zelos wasn't there to listen, Hilda and the Pope discussed matters about the king's death. The last part of the chapter is written below for reference:
Lloyd nearly dashed passed their back into the King’s Chambers when he caught the hushed conversation between the Pope and Princess Hilda.
“So the doddering old man will be dead within a week?” Hilda asked.
“Yes,” the Pope said. “In a week’s time, you’ll be queen and I’ll be your closest advisor.”
“Very good,” Hilda said. “I’ve dispatched Seles on Chosen duty near Sybak. The assassins are trailing her just as we planned. Her little brother, Zelos, is malleable, but… I don’t want to take any chances. He’ll have a little accident as soon as the guards escorting him mistake him for a coliseum contestant when they reach the prisons.”
“Excellent,” the Pope said. “Now, about my ne -”
‘Damn it,’ Lloyd thought. ‘Now Zelos and Seles are in trouble! But what am I going to do about the King, he’s dying too. Augh, but Zelos is going to die now and the King’s got a week left. I… wish the others were here to help me decide. To heck with it, I’m going to save Zelos. King, don’t you die before I get back!’ Lloyd’s eyes lingered on the King’s door for a second longer. Then he turned and followed after Zelos
If you need a refresher course of what's required or ideas on what's to come, remember you can check out the forums by clicking here. I thought about just pasting the information myself but there's much to copy and paste that I decided to be lazy about it. So, let this be the first announcement that our next chapter is due Saturday July 25th. I'm meeting you all half way. Instead of three weeks, which is too long, or one week which seems to be too short, we'll do two weeks this time, and that's final. Three days to vote so we'll have our chapter posted on Wednesday. Then from there, it'll be a week and a half and we'll settle into a nice little predictable schedule. That way, if we have a routine, you'll only need to check in and you'll know where we are, ne?
Anyway, I think that's all for now, I'll catch ya'll soon enough! And prepare to be pelted with emails in all the available inboxes the last three days before deadlines. ^-^
