Chapter 27 Up!

Well, it’s been something like an astonishing five years in the making, but Chapter 27 is finally up, posted, done! For the sake of reading ease, it’s broken up into 13 parts of roughly 1500 words a piece. Some are slightly longer, some are a bit shorter.

I was honestly so thrilled to finally get it into a state where I was happy with it –after tons of iterations, edits with Aelibia again, edits with Andinel (my boyfriend and in-house editor), edits using the Hemingway app, edits using Grammarly… I may have gone a bit overboard.

So thank you to Aelibia and Andinel, but also thank you, dear reader, for encouraging me to continue, for continuing to review, give kudos, and all that wonderful stuff. It means so much to see such kind words every time I look at my clock or go to my Desktop.

Don’t believe me? Here’s a part of my Desktop:

What’s next: Well, aside from the obvious of Chapter 28 (which I hope I can churn out in 1500-word chunks to get it out sooner), I plan on:

  • Adding all prior review replies to this site, since I don’t really use LiveJournal anymore… however, my account there is a Permanent one, so it theoretically shouldn’t go anywhere. I just don’t update it (much).
  • Verifying you can easily navigate from one chapter to the next to the latest by adding links at the bottom of each chapter.
  • Ensuring all the chapters posted here have accurate links, tags, categories, headers, and so forth… this site will be the definitive “latest version” of the story, if any changes are made. If they’re significant enough,  I might upload a file to Archive of Our Own and, though.
  • Adding more bonus material, including fanart, a soundtrack, and more!

Hopefully see you soon!


Welcome to the all-new WDKY site!

Hello, and welcome to the all-new What Doesn’t Kill You website on the Seventh-Star Network!

My fanfiction has previously been posted on archives including and Archive of Our Own, but I’ve always enjoyed practicing my web and graphic design skills by hosting my stories on my own site, with extra material that I can’t otherwise share on other sites.

While I do have plans to one day archive all of my fanfiction on one personal, centralized site, I’m currently “testing the waters” with this WordPress installation for one of my longer, more popular fanfics, the Yu-Gi-Oh! story What Doesn’t Kill You. I may still include the story on other archives I personally host, such as the Seto Kaiba x Anzu Mazaki/Téa Gardner (Azureshipping) archive Dragonfayth, and on my future personal archive, Epiphany, though I’m still undecided as to whether to continue using the same software Dragonfayth uses, eFiction, for Epiphany, or WordPress.

Tell me what you think of this site, and if you have any problems or questions, and stay tuned for fanfiction updates, art, and more!
