Chapter 1 up!  

Enjoy! Not as long as some of my TBT chapter writing (~4500 words or so), but if you recall the first few chapters of TBT started out slowly, as well. More to come later!

Edit, 3:15pm: Eeek. It looks as though FF.net's server is NOT ROBUST. The site crashed just a few minutes ago. I'll post Chapter 1 to The Renewal as soon as I can, even though it's still just an R (M) rating and not NC-17 yet. Chapter 2, however, will be an entirely 'nother story. ^.~ Muhahahaha.

Son of Edit: It's back up! Whew. In the meantime I did upload 1 & the Prologue to The Renewal, but you'll have to excuse the hideous teal colors on the index page. I need to do some serious html-ing to make my webspace neater in that regard. Maybe some p-shop-ingness. Anyway. Enjoy!

I'm glad! It's still a bit shorter than what I'm used to, but I think I spoiled everyone with the ~21K last chapter of TBT. ^^; I think my next few ones will definitely be longer.

Wonderful chapter - and I totally made sure to vote! :)
(I'll leave a review on ff.net tomorrow morning when I am a little more awake)

Super job - I can't wait to see what happens in Chapter 2. :)

Thanks, Jen! ^___^ Don't worry about the review...it's enough that you left a note here! I hope I can get Chapter 2 out in a reasonable amount of time. Glad you're still reading! <3

Mock-car-sex and kissies, as well as the promise of a NC-17 chapter. Misora, you make me so happy. In a purely platonic way, of course.

On a much more relevant note, I'm totally digging the plot set up in this chapter. Robin's little precognitive moment, the gathering of witches in Sovana, even the sweet scene at the very end where they fall asleep together... I can't wait to see where you go with this. As usual, a phenomenal job with the writing; your description of Amon's head getting blown off (innuendo not intended) made me wince a little.

I didn't vote, because I didn't get around to checking my e-mail and reading the chapter until this morning. Whoops!

Oh Rhiannon, don't even worry about the votes. ^^ If I win, I win. If not, someone more worthy won. I think we'll know in a couple days or so, when the votes get tallied. ^.~

Mock-car-sex! I didn't think of it that way, but you know, it fits! I'm glad you liked the plot development, and thought the writing style was realistic (maybe a tad *too* realistic? ^^;;). Thank you so much for your review!

Hope to see another chapter of DiV up soon, as well!

If I recall the nomination page a-right, you have some pretty steep competition, but I'm sure you'll do well. Your story rox, and I'm sure I've said (multiple) times before!

It does fit! Amon's little lusty moments in this chapter made me smile, although it's definitely an improvement on Amon's previous attempts at becoming the poster child for sexual repression. I would say that it's just realistic enough -- anything less would have taken away from the horror of the moment, and the anxiety over what could have happened.

Hopefully soon! I've been feeling the urge to write on it recently, it's just finding the time. Besides, I'd hate to break our pattern; it seems that when you update, I'm quick to follow (occasionally vice versa). Did you see the last update, back in June?

This is random, but does Bruce Springsteen's "I'm On Fire" at all bring Amon/Robin to mind for you? I was listening to it earlier.
Misora: dream endedmisora on September 3rd, 2007 04:44 pm (UTC)
Crap, I think I missed that update entirely. I'm going to go read it now and review.

Yes, that Springsteen song does sound like A/R! That would make a good AMV, actually. ^^

*g* I kind of wondered. Thank god for ff.net author alerts, or I'd never know when anyone updated.

I'm too computer challenged to think about doing one, but yeah, it probably would. :)
Misora: cracked outmisora on September 4th, 2007 02:49 am (UTC)
Ohh, I liked it. Very scary for our dear blonde one, though.

And yes, author alerts...must look into that. ^^;;;

I don't know why, but I seem to be totally digging the cliffhangers recently.

When will we know how you did in the contest thingie?
Misora: sad-eyed queenmisora on September 8th, 2007 06:11 pm (UTC)
Cliffhangars are strangely satisfying, in some ways. The suspense, perhaps!

I haven't received any email yet either way about the contest, so we'll see! They're certainly taking their sweet time tallying the votes! ^.~

That was so good and well worth the wait! I am just glad I got to read the next chapter before I go o/seas this weekend. Here's hoping that when I get back the next chapter is up with lots of SEXY TIME IN IT!

Keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing the plot thicken! (O.o Pun not intended?)
Misora: firestartermisora on September 3rd, 2007 04:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks for reading! I'm glad you liked it, and yes I hope to have the next chapter up relatively soon, hopefully not too long after you get back from your trip! And lol@ sexy time and plot thickening! There will be some of that, for sure... ^^

Very, very happy. I fell in love with TBT while I avoided packing for school (ironically going to a Christian university, but still fascinated with pagan mythology and wicca . . . I know, I'm going to hell). So, I as very happy to see HG updated . . . and to learn in ch. 2 they'd finally SEAL THE DEAL!! (yes, good little Christian girl loves fanfic smut. So going to hell). So, update soon, your writing is phenominal, and good luck in the UFO thing (never did get around to voting, sorry)!
Misora: teh fic iconmisora on September 8th, 2007 08:18 pm (UTC)
Yay! ^___^ Thank you for your review! Trust me, you're no more going to hell than I am, so don't worry about the pagan/smut interest...and there will be a LOT in this story, I assure you!

Thank you for the compliment, and for the luck with the UFO awards...I will definitely let you guys know if I place! Glad you're still reading!

Ohhh *dances around* I was so happy about the new chapter!! It's been so long since the last one, and this one went to open our smut apetite lOL
I got to admit that there was a time there I thought I would scream at amon's death... but then all was well :P
I'm really eager to see the next chapter, finally good pagan intercourse :x
Great writting as always!
