Hey all,

As promised, the first installment of my latest story. I thought I'd try my hand at a little bit of romance mixed with adventure. Hope you like it:

Thanks. I picked up a bunch of 1 x 2 lime green bricks from PaB. I like how it turned out.

Not much there yet is there? I'm realizing there is a lot of setting up to be done before getting to the heart of the story. I'm thinking this one might be a little long.

I don't understand by downtown Romania. What city is it? I'm not familiar with this place.

P.S. I am from Romania

Its just kind of a light joke. Since Romania isn't a town, but rather a country, there can't be a downtown Romania. It was just an easy, and I was hoping humerous, way for me to avoid really pinning myself down to any specific locale. These stories aren't real big on historical, geographical, or scientific accuracy, just like the 1930s serial adventures, they are trying to emulate. ;)  

There are gypsies in Romania though, right?

Steve

P.S. Speaking of gypsies, yet entirely off topic, anyone read Thinner by Richard Bachman (aka Stephen King)?

Sorry for the long delay with the next installment, but I've hit a patch of real busy-ness with school and a bit of writer's block too. So the story has really stalled. I've been holding these 4 in reserve because I figured this would happen. Anyhow here are the next four scenes (including a first kiss  *wub*  ). I hope you like them:

Well I had hoped to have this story finished by now, and be started on a new St. Patrick's Day one, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. (This story is turning out to be a lot longer than I'd anticipated... but then of course it is like two stories in one :), I sure hope it is worth it.)

Anyhow, now that I've aired my frustrations with the creative process a bit, I present the next installment:

Thanks. Are you actually re-reading them? If so, I'm very flattered...  *satis* And yes here are the links:

AoJT I

AoJT II


And they are also all in my brickshelf galleries, so if you just click on the "up" links a few times you should be able to find them.

I actually haven't read the first one, and I think I missed the ending of the 2nd, but I read most of the second (at least I'm pretty sure it was most at least a lot) and I'm reading that over.

The next four additions, which burns through all the ones I was holding in reserve. Guess I'd better get writing and photographing again.

Hey all,

Here is the latest four additions to the story. There might be a bit of a hiatus after this, as it is finals time again.    *wacko*  Though I would estimate that it is nearing, if not already on, the downward slope to resolution... or at least I hope so.

Well its been a long time coming, but I've finally gotten around to making some more scenes for you all. I decided I'd better get around to finishing this story soon, or I never will (and besides I'm running out of gypsy adjectives :D).

I'm hoping the story will pick up speed a bit from here on out, and at 48 parts (so far) it is already longer than the other two. So it had better pick up some steam...
