No Strings Attached Chapter 11 - Part 1 and 2

Hello, so I finally finished Chapter 11 of "NSA"! OMG, I read over and over it again, changed things, deleted parts, found mistakes and I think now it is ready. It would have been a long chapter so I divided it into two parts! I hope you will enjoy it! I think it is good chapter because it shows more of Ariana and Jason and definitely brings them a lot closer! Hope you will like it and let me know please! Thanks for reading!

In/Exhale - Season 2 Finale

So . . . it's finally here.

This season ends a little more quietly than last, and I hope you won't hate me after reading it.

Last week, we got some interesting backstory as to how Kai ended up with his last name Fox, saw his situation escalate, ending in a heart breaking call to Renee.

How can things possibly get better after that?

I hope this week's episode - in which you'll get to see a short session with Dr. Miller for the first time from Kai's POV - will show the light at the end of the tunnel for both Kai and Renee. Kai makes a tough choice, and so does Renee. . . .

As always, Table of Contents is updated.

I've been working on Season 3 and have a general idea for everything that will happen, and have a few scenes already written. Next season we will see a lot of character growth from Kai, and we'll get a lot more backstory/insight into Jon's character. We'll also explore some of the secondary characters like David and Martin. In some ways, Season 3 is already shaping up to be the most expansive season yet.

Season 2 will be available in ebook form later this summer, and I'll try to post here when it's ready for download. (Season 1 is already available as a free download on my blog.)

Thank you again so much to all of you for reading and commenting. It means a lot to me to see how deeply my story has resonated with many of you, and it keeps me motivated to keep writing no matter how hard it can be to share sometimes.



PS - I will try to keep active on my blog and on twitter throughout the summer, though I'm taking two classes in June so I'll be pretty busy. But feel free to follow me for updates while I/E is on hiatus! I hope I'll be back for the fall or winter of this year at the latest. :)

Update - Cambridge Connections, Chapter Twenty

A genuine 'thank you' for your comments on the last one - really appreciate your support. As Chie said in her update, we can all get a bit doubtful about our writing sometimes, but you guys make it all worthwhile for all of us on here.

Anyway, enough of that. Here's Chapter Twenty for you. Alex's little plan for a day out is knocked ever so slightly sideways by a small issue he discovers when he wakes up, but you know how these two still manage to have fun...

As ever, if you have anything to say, stick it in the comments. Table of Contents has been updated too.

No Strings Attached today - so sorry!

Hello to my little fan club! I am so sorry to tell you that I was not able to get Chapter 11 edited and finished for posting today, Wednesday! My life has been so busy these last couple of days. I really feel withdrawal symptoms when I can't write or edit on the story so I am frustrated I couldn't present today. Chapter 11 is also long that I am not sure if I should post it in one session. Do you want a long chapter 11? Anyhow, I will try to get the chapter on here hopefully on the weekend! Hugs! Dani

In/Exhale Continues

I know these last few episodes have been kind of heavy, but I thank you all for sticking with me. Today we see the second half of November 24, in which Kai is still dealing with the fallout of Thanksgiving.

The first part has one of my favorite moments in the season, in which Jon learns how and why Kai picked the name "Fox" when he changed his name; I hope you guys will like it too. We end with an important few scenes, including one with Vicky that I hope will give you some more insight into her behavior (I know some of you guys hate her, lol), and another with Renee that might have you all hating ME.

However, after this double-episode we have ONE more episode left, the season finale, and perfect timing, too, as my classes start up the following week.

I hope you enjoy this double-episode:

November 24, 2000 - Part III | November 24, 2000 - Part IV

I've been planning for Season 3 already and have a little bit written, but especially with some health issues and class it may not be until Fall or Winter of this year that I'll be able to start posting again. However, I'll be sure to let you all know when the Season Two ebook is available for those of you who may want to read it in a more convenient format.

Thanks, all of you, for your support and encouragement. It's been a pretty rough time for me lately in which I've doubted myself and my writing, and coming onto the blog to read (and re-read) some of you comments is always a small boost.

Thank you all again, and as always, Table of Contents is updated.

Update - Cambridge Connections, Chapter Nineteen

Thank you for your feedback last week about my return - I was very touched. For those of you beginning to show signs of panicking, let me just say that I'm a fairytale girl at heart, but I'm not opposed to putting my characters through the wringer first...

Anyway, this week, Sam heads back down to Cambridge after her first week at the V&A.

Here's Chapter Nineteen for you.

(Table of Contents has been updated too.)

Thanks for your lovely comments on my story, and don't forget that if there's ever anything that doesn't feel right, or doesn't work, let me know too!

No Strings Attached Chapter 10

Hello, here is Chapter 10 of "NSA". This chapter was a bit tougher for me, I read over it so many times, edited, read over it, edited and so on and it still ended up being pretty long. I hope it still captures your interest to learn more about Ariana and Jason. You will read about the aftermath of the last meeting and Jason having a hard time with the proposition still. Feedback always welcome! Thanks guys!

In/Exhale Continues

Sorry this is so late in getting up. I had a super busy day and wanted to get both parts up for the double-episode!

Part I starts early in the morning as Kai wakes and deals with more flashbacks. Part II is another session with Dr. Miller, in which several insights arise.

*Warning: Part I might be difficult for some readers, as it may contain some abuse triggers.

November 24, 2000 - Part I | November 24, 2000 - Part II

Thank you all for sticking with me. I know it's been a long and arduous season! Only two weeks left before the season ends...

As usual, I've updated the Table of Contents.

Cambridge Connections Returns!

Wow, I've been away from the site for quite a while! Looks like I've got some reading to catch up on with all these exciting new posts and stories. I'm sorry I've been away for so long - not to sound like a drama queen, but lots of things have been going on in my personal life which haven't been exactly conducive to writing. However, I'm hoping to resume regular, weekly posting, which will take us from chapter eighteen all the way to the end at chapter thirty. 

Thank you for your sweet comments on the end of Chapter Seventeen asking about when I'm coming back. You're all so lovely, I'd hate to disappoint you by not posting more.

To recap, we have just left Sam and Alex after her big Graduation Day celebration, preparing for a bit of time apart while she goes for her internship at the V&A Museum in London. And finally, for those readers still hanging on in there with my story, as a thank you, here's Chapter Eighteen for you. I have Shakespeare to thank for fancy title for this chapter...

**NEW – Chapter Eighteen***

(Table of Contents has been updated as usual)

Let me know if anything isn't working, as it's been a while and I'm a bit rusty on posting procedures...!

Thanks again for sticking with my little story,

No Strings Attached Chapter 9

Hi! Here is Chapter 9 of No Strings Attached! In this chapter Jason and Ariana meet again and it gets a bit steamy! Maybe there is a chance for the proposition to work!  Hope you enjoy this chapter and of course feedback is appreciated! Thanks for reading!

In/Exhale Continues - Flashback Time!

These last few episodes of Season 2 have been tough, I know, and so today we're going to take a little "break" from the chaos and flashback to Kai's 18th birthday. Today is a follow up to the other flashback we had this season (June 18-21, 1996), in which Kai and Jon reunited after twelve years apart. Today, Jon picks Kai up from County House so they can start their new lives together as brothers, only things don't go quite as smoothly as Jon had hoped.


June 26, 1996

Next week we'll have one of two double episodes for the day after Thanksgiving, then end with the final episode of the season, meaning only three more weeks left of In/Exhale before I take a break. I don't have anything really written for Season 3 yet, but I did work on my outline where I write up ideas for what I want to happen, and I have a really good picture of what Season 3 will be about. It'll involve a lot of personal growth for Kai, we'll see more of some of the secondary characters like David and Martin, and, as usual, it will have an epic finale.

I don't have any idea when Season 3 will start (since I don't have anything formally written yet), but I'm hoping it'll be in the fall of this year, or the winter, at the latest. And I will be releasing Season 2 in ebook form later this summer.

Thanks to all of you for your great feedback. I really appreciate your support!


PS - Table of Contents has been updated, as always :D.

No Strings Attached Chapter 8

Here is Chapter 8 of No Strings Attached! Ariana and Jason can't forget about each other! Enjoy and give me feedback! Thanks for reading!

It Starts So Quietly continued

Part two of Evelyn's story is up! My apologies for the delay. She sent it to me, but I was on my honeymoon and then I got sick and so I finally found time to get it up!

This is starting out with casting and broken bones but will likely progress in severity. So far it's tame, but I expect it to get very dark at some point!
