There are those who would be forgiven, upon hearing that a new multi-chaptered novella in the It Matters series is planned, for believing it when they see it.
You may read the newly completed update on the Matti!canon universe in these places:
A December Medley follows Mello and Matt's lives during December 2014. It takes us from the first of the month until Auld Lang Syne.
Please note that some elements are unsuitable for minors, which means they'll be the first to jump in and read it. We're talking the kind of descriptive adult content that cannot be unread.
As for the rest, this is how I've described it in the author's note:
This began as a short story to mark Mello's birthday in December 2014. I missed my deadline, so extended it to take in Christmas too. I nearly made it as well. But missing by a couple of days meant I really should include New Year's Eve.
The upshot is a pot pourri kind of novella. I wonder if this multi-chaptered collection of tales should really be called a novel. If you count the birthday suite embedded in its centre, then A December Medley has more chapters than It Matters. But there's no over-riding plot nor story arc. Some chapters are tiny, mere drabbles with less than a handful of paragraphs. Some are epic, long length explorations into certain scenes. More a pick and mix medley than a coherent overture.
I missed New Year, so aimed for January 18th instead. Brooke Stardust knows why. So does Orangepunch, who spent many hours today helping me rush this through to its conclusion.
You're seeing a story in a semi-raw state, not subjected to Spoiled-Kitten's quality control, nor Sareyva's proof-reading, consistency and fact checking professionalism. Just me and Orangepunch determined to see this to its conclusion today.
We hope you like it anyway.
