A little request from Bufi
Gnosis recently hit chapter 42, and passed 70k words. This is huge for me, because Gnosis is my first big fiction project. I wouldn't have made it so far without Stormy's precious help *hands over cake to Stormy*, but I still have a very long way to go before I can feel like an actual writer.
Chapters 41 and 42 - Road Trip parts 1 and 2 - contain a big piece of important backstory. This is probably long overdue, as I'm now looking back and wondering how come I made so little happen in 40 chapters... but I'm learning.
Truth be told, I was terrified of posting these two chapters. They sat in my computer almost-but-not-quite finished for months before their turn came to go online. I went over details over and over again, wondering if I'm creating a Mary Sue, or jumping sharks and nuking fridges. I hope I steered clear of those mistakes, but as the 'parent' of these characters and their story, I have a major fault - I'm a bit biased. It's hard to take an objective look at what I wrote, but maybe I'll grow out of this later, once I gain more XP. I hope I will.
I'm not fishing for praise, really. But what I am hoping for is to get some opinions.
If you read Gnosis (thanks for reading and for bearing with me! :) ), could you please tell me if I messed up, or did something right, or jumped sharks and nuked fridges with Road Trip? Was it too much information crammed in two chapters, after so many chapters in which so little is revealed?
You will have my (and Stewie's) uber-gratitude! :)
