So I lied. I decided to do it today. It has taken--God--eight months, numerous rewrites, multiple betas, and weeks of procrastination, but finished! Finally. And surprisingly long at that.
Author Notes: Thanks to: ymfaery, kernezelda, jazzy_peaches, shinetheway, and girlnamedpixley for the wonderful betas.
Thanks to girlnamedpixley for the amazing art; she went above and beyond and then far, far beyond that to create something amazing.
Thanks to transtempts and winterlive, who pre-read and held my hand and kind of pushed me until this was done.
Warnings: some violence, mental coercison
War Games, 4.87 MB, PDF file, created by girlnamedpixley and with some different art that appears in the online version. I have instructions from her, pasted below:This is formatted for double-sided printing, so if they print it front and back, the left margin is wide enough for a 3 hold punch.
The blank second page is there for a reason; it's the back side of the cover image so that the text of the story begins on the right hand page, as it should for printing. That's only important if they're printing it out.
