I had visions of perhaps only a few people being interested, so the response has heartened me. I must admit, that if the response had been tepid, I would probably not have posted each part as quickly. Feedback, the writer's blood, certainly helps inspire the Muse!
I am busy working on the next arc (Shadow Of The Bat) and hope to finish in a matter of weeks, not months, RL permitting. If you are curious about my progress, you can check out the Rainbow's Freedom Series page as after I finish each chapter in the next arc, I'll add its number to the page. Right now 11 have been completed in the first draft. I'm sorry it's not a complete guideline as I don't know how many chapters there will be ultimately. I guess it's just to see if I'm still working hard! :) I do know there will be more than 17 chapters.
A quirk of mine: when I post the chapters to my LJ, I do have a line that says "Date Completed". It often bears a date pretty far back, but that's because I choose to put in the first draft's completion date. The actual completion date is the date of posting, but I like to see how steady my progress has been as to speed between first draft and ultimate posting. See, a quirk! :)
I've enjoyed working on this series and have four more arcs plotted, with more that will be necessary after that. Usually it's beginnings and endings and I have to puzzle out the middles. :) More characters from the DCU will be introduced, and some original characters as well. Creating an AU is a wonderful writer's exercise and gets the creative juices flowing!
In the meantime I hope you enjoy other non-series stories that will be written in the interim while working on the next arc with definitely more Clark/Bruce among them! So many plot bunnies, so little time! :)
Again, thank you for reading, and when the second arc is ready, you'll be the first to know! LOL!
