The general consensus was, "Sure, an ebook would be cool!"

So I'm doing an ebook of 'love, in fire and blood'! I'm doin' it!

But I need some help/input for a couple things!
Number one: if I'm gonna do this, I would love a proofreader. I know there are some typos in the fic that snuck past me.

If anyone wants to do a quick-and-dirty proofread (or, better yet, if SEVERAL people wanna chip in, so I can split the chapters up) that would be amazing.
Let me know if you're interested! I'm just looking for a very rough catch-all-the-lingering typos proofread.

Solid English skills are a must. But no prior editing experience is necessary.
Number two: I would like to add some bonus features to the ebook! Specifically, I think it would be fun to include 1-3 bonus chapters.
Is there anything you'd like to see in that falls into that category? Any extras or other fun stuff? Could be set before the story, during the story, after the story...I'm open to suggestions!
Number three: I am planning to do a Q&A session for this fic, and I am thinking of setting up a ko-fi.

Stay tuned for more info on that. If I go that route, I will launch both on the day the final chapter drops.

(Ideally, that'll be around March 15th.)
Thank you all for your support! I very much appreciate it.

There's no way I could have sustained this MONSTROUSLY long fic without your kindness and words of encouragement. ♥️

Folks, I am noodling around with the idea of formatting "love, in fire and blood" as an ebook once I'm done with it. With nice little chapter markings, a cover image, a foreword/afterword, etc.
Initially, I just wanted to do this for myself!

Just to formally bring to a close a project that's devoured that last 7-8 months of my life. Just to have a "product" I could hold in my hands, so to speak.
But I wonder if this is something others would be interested in? If I did this, would y'all want to download it?

To be clear, I'm not trying to 'sell' anything. I'm just talking about formatting it as a EPUB/PDF and setting it up somewhere for a free download.

That "good boy, Wangji!" comic by artsy alice, though! 😭It continues to destroy me on a daily basis! I am not joking when I say it informs my characterization of LWJ!

...Look. I am sorry to contaminate this sweet and pure comic with my own vulgar thoughts.

But. I am about to.
Here's the thing!

I just…feel like there was a moment.

In LWJ's childhood.

When NMJ did that.

And LWJ realized that he really like it when big, strong geges tell him he’s a good boy. 😬
Like, he’s a literal baby when it first happens! So he doesn't realize for MANY YEARS why he liked it so much!

But once he got to be around...oh, sixteen, maybe? I think there was a lightbulb moment for him.

Okay, but it’s literally a crime that I have yet to see a single Zorro AU for this fandom.

I mean?! Excuse me?!?!
Hidden identities?

A man in a mask, running around seeking justice and revenge?

Sexy swordfights, where one of the parties is wearing a flowing white gown? A gown that gets cheekily cut to pieces, until they’re half-naked? And then their opponent steals a kiss and runs off?
What about this concept does NOT scream wangxian!

I ask you!

Low-key obsessed with this idea now.

I've seen so much speculation recently about what kind of crier LWJ would be! And I don't know what I think!

But I am starting to think...he's a person who cries a lot more often than you might suppose?
Like, I kinda think he might be a classic Frustrated Crier?

If he's stressed, overwhelmed, or generally annoyed, I think he might just cry!
He'd hold it together in public. Then, in private, he'd bawl. Full-on ugly cry. Just to let those feelings out and regain his famous composure.

Okay, I know this is probably because I watched CQL a whole month before I learned ANTYHING about the novel.

But it continues to astound me that Chief-Cultivator!LWJ is still something of a contentious issue in this fandom.

...Guys?? It's so funny? It's actually amazing?
People are honestly opposed to this concept?! Why? It's comedy gold!

Every day, I see people being like, "I don't like it, because LWJ would be a terrible political leader."




He'd be awful! The worst! Can you even imagine!

But really: there are not enough Wangxian/Addams Family crossovers and AUs.

I just get such similar vibes from wangxian and Gomez/Morticia.
Where are all my fics about WWX and Gomez dramatically swordfighting indoors, while rhapsodizing about how their respective spouses are the most extraordinary creatures to ever walk the planet?!
Where are my fics about LWJ and Morticia repotting their poisonous plants in the greenhouse, while discussing child-rearing methods and how every healthy marriage needs some good BDSM?
