Okay, here's the deal: I've finished Chapter 2 of Curse/Or, but now that I'm done, it feels like it should be folded back into Chapter 1.
So what follows is technically Chapter 2, but not actually. And since it's been over a month since I posted the first part of Chapter 2, I decided to post the whole dang thing instead of just the new stuff.
Also, I've made some slight changes to the original Chapter 1 (hey, this is a work in progress, I'm allowed to tweak it), so what I'm going to do in the next few days is post the the whole thing again. That post will be the master copy, i.e. if I decide to change things that's where they will be changed, not in the "Works in Progress" posts. It will also make a handy place for people who want to read the whole thing from the beginning, either for clarity or because they're new to the story.
Got it? Good. Enjoy Chapter Next. Which used to be Chapter 2, and is now Chapter 1 again. Then you can look forward to reading Chapter 3, which is really going to be Chapter 2, unless I change my mind.
Stay tuned for Chapter Pi!
