So I now have a DeviantArt profile under Umei-no-Mai, where I am posting family trees for Black Sky as and when I complete them. Various spoilers for Zabini headcanon on the Zabini tree, but the Marius Black tree was requested by a reviewer and should clear things up a little concerning Dorea's cousins.

I have fanart! Quichika has done a completely gorgeous drawing of Dorea from Black Sky that can be found on their deviantart! It's sooo beautiful! My first ever fanart! They go by Quichi over there and the picture is called Dorea, so go look!

There are now extended details of the Zabini family tree up on Deviantart, as well as a plan of the Vongola Mansion. For scale on the mansion, a standard sized saloon car is probably about three millemetres long when you have the picture at full-size. It's a big building, seriously.

Black Sky now has its own TV Tropes page! Squee! I'm guessing that anybody wanting to add to it is free to do so, so if that's your kind of thing then go for it! I also have more fanart: shugocharachan over on deviantart has done pictures of Ramiel and Rasiel -Twin Princes(Black Sky fanart)- and of their little sister Suriel. I can't believe how gorgeous they are! Fanart of my characters!

So. I'm really struggling with Black Sky, because there's some heavy relationship baggage in the next few chapters and I want to do it justice. I really like reading reviews in between doing this, as it reminds me of all the lovely people out there who want to read my stuff. But every now and then you get a rude Guest reviewer whose unnecessary bile makes me wonder why I bother at all. I know they are a tiny minority and not worth listening to, but it still hurts. And it makes it very difficult to find the inspiration to continue.
I do have chapters written up. But I want to finish in a good place, so updates are on hold until I have enough chapters not to dump everybody somewhere tense and unsatisfying for the next however long it takes. This is a labour of love, so please be polite. Thank-you.

Okay, so I finally caved and put the Black Family Tree I found on the HP wiki -as it has since vanished from there- on my DeviantArt. If you're having trouble working out how all my Blacks are related, it's a good reference and you can all copy/download it since I do not own it. It might have been canonical at one point, maybe, but isn't any more. I've fiddled some of the dates -like making Lucretia Black 10 years younger- but the relationships and connections are all the same.

There's now a diagram in my deviantart gallery with the names and nicknames of all of Dorea's official Guardians, for reference purposes. Quite a few reviewers have been requesting a cheat sheet for a while now, so now there is one!

For people wanting to read Parenting is not a Varia Quality in the continuity-appropriate places in Black Sky, the chronological chapter order is as follows: Black Sky up to the end of chapter 97, then the first three chapters of Parenting. Then chapters 98-100 of Black Sky, then chapter 4 of Parenting. Then 101-104 of Black Sky, 5 of Parenting, 105-106 of Black Sky, 6 of Parenting. Then 107 of Black Sky, the two-chapters-plus-Marvel-omake of A Very Varia Vacation (chapters 7-9 in PinaVQ), 108-113 of Black Sky, A Mafia Murder Mystery (chapter 10), chapter 114 of Black Sky and on to the end.

I have more fanart! Slyfoxcub has done a completely adorable sketch of Dorea, Xanxus and baby Daniela, which is on their page over on deviantart. (I am in awe of the amazing people who do art of fanfiction, it's so amazing as an author to have somebody draw your characters and story.) There's also a picture of Lussuria as Hel, like in Theo's painting from chapter 210, which is fabulous and creepy and perfect, a stunning colour portrait of Xanxus and Dorea with associated symbols and a cute picture of Mainomai, Pyr, Kuchisake, Lektor and Spiderman. Fanartists are awesome!
Also, sagolilyofthevalley on Instagram has done a glorious sketch of the 'Xanxus and Squalo as King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake' painting of Theo's, which you may want to check out.

The amazing variia has, in a fit of either madness or brilliance (possibly both at once) created a google document reference for all the Hogwarts and Varia characters mentioned in Black Sky, their Flames and other details, along with references for Dorea's Guardians and the Zabini feather language information. It can be found at:
which will have to be copied and pasted since Fanfiction.net doesn't allow links. Go take a look, it's amazing.
