Fanfic - Fumbling Towards Ecstasy

14 posts in this topic

My first fanfic ended up accidentally becoming a novel! I hope people will read and enjoy it. The focus is on Kaladin working on healing from PTSD and depression in the context of a relationship with Adolin, and later, Shallan. It's got some hurt but a lot of comfort, and humour too :)

Nooooo my to-read list is following me onto the Shard... :P 

I'm interested - thanks for writing it! The world needs more long-form Shakadolin fic in it.

I hope you enjoy it! I think it breaks down pretty easily into smaller chapters and story arcs so hopefully it's not too daunting :)

Finally getting around to reading this - just a couple of chapters in but I'm loving how you are handling the transition into the relationship - I'm finding Shallan's processing of things really interesting/compelling.

I've only gone done and written a novella that fits between chapter 22 and 23 of FTE. The focus is Rlain/Renarin but Kaladin, Shallan, and Adolin all have POV chapters.

If We Have Each Other

15,000 words

Rated Mature (the final chapter is the spicy one)

Summary: the support of friends and family makes romantic relationships better.

You have captured the spirit of Adolin "Hey, do you need a big-brother hug?  Anyone?" Kholin, disaster dandy extraordinaire. 

On chapter 3, liking what I'm reading so far.  :)

You've also nailed Dalinar, particularly his parenting skills, or lack thereof.  This is good writing!
