Good as Gold

Good as Gold

About the Story


"Good as Gold" follows straight on from "Thunder Daughter"; Sei's actions in the eumin "Bubble City" on the bottom of ia'Maura's ocean have left him with plenty of enemies - and ones who'll stop at nothing to punish him for his supposed infractions.

When his wife and twin brother are rumoured to have been killed in a devastating explosion, Sei realises that he must personally track down and stop the perpetrator, before he himself is killed - or worse.


Technically, I "won" this one as I got to the winning 50,000 words, but because my brain was trying to cope with writing this AND "Warped" (which I was enjoying more), things went a bit pear shaped and I didn't manage to finish it. I do still plan on getting it completed - see below.


Information and Updates


1st November 2012 - I have resumed work on this story, using it as my NaNoWriMo for this year.

3rd May 2013 - the LJ community I was hosting this story on has had a slight name-change, since the original owner of "good_as_gold" deleted their journal and the name was made available again. (Which I'm really quite glad about, as having numbers on each end of "0good_as_gold0" bothered me.) The old name should divert to the new one, as I'm sure I missed some links.


Extracts and Previews


Each chapter of "Good as Gold" is posted on Livejournal or Dreamwidth as it becomes available. I know it's no longer November 2008, or even 2012, but I'm still working on it! These two communities have moderated posting, but open membership, if you have any questions or comments.
