I know this probably won't happen but, is there a chance of, like, a blog just for the human companion stories? Where you would write more? I really want more of these stories, but if you don't want to write them that's ok
I hope it’s ok that I’m answering this publicly, because I am so excited about the project I’m working on right now.
So. The world is kind of on fire and as a Smol Queer™ with diverse friends and family, it is absolutely terrifying to be in the US right now. And since writing is the only good thing I can offer, my response to the horror of the world is a desperate burning need to pull my friends close and write aggressively optimistic stories with them.
Enter the human companion stories.
My closest friends who write are all into the idea, so step one of what I’ve been calling the Universe Project is done!
Step two will be fleshing the universe out better. The Ginna stories as they stand are intentionally a bit vague on details, since they were just jotted off to post for fun. If we’re all going to be writing in the same universe without contradicting each other, we’re going to have to have a stronger established setting. Since my writer friends are all in various fandoms with me, and have almost all written collaborative fanfics with me (and if not, with each other), and we headcanon together for stories all the time - I have absolute faith in our ability to make a cohesive setting together.
Step three will be to write Human Companion stories (or stories with characters adjacent to the human companions). And since we’re all writers, writing is a thing we do, so that should not be a problem.
Final step: figure out self-publishing and get the stories out! I’ve already got a mostly written Ginna and Loren story that will need editing to make congruent with the shared universe, and probably a bit of expanding to novella length to make it a good stand-alone story, so that final step is not so far out of sight!
Probably we will eventually get a website for the Universe Project, but even then I will still loudly publicize all the stories that come out of that project here on my writers blog. So following me here is a good way to keep abreast of any developments!
Anyway, sorry this answer got so long. I am just very excited about the Universe Project and the Human Companions stories. I’m always happy to hear about others who loved them too, so thank you for sending this message. It really brightened my morning!
