To whom it may concern
So I haven’t been doing much with my summer so far because I had to get a job, and while I enjoy the money the hours are horrible and it really is a shit job, which is to be expected because it’s retail in the US which means customers are shitty and it’s hard work no one really appreciates, but it will help pay tuition so whatever. And most of my coworkers are awesome, which is another plus.
But they’ve been having me do closing the past few days, which can be really fun, but the woman they’ve had on lead this week is awful. Like, ridiculously so. And I mean, we’re in the middle of a heat wave and there was just a full moon (some believe that makes people act weird) and yeah we’ve been having a lot of problems with our systems and we just got a new store manager but holy shit I have never met a person who treats others with such disrespect in my life.
I closed with her again last night and it was just baffling how she treated the rest of us. I mean, they had only two people on register, both of whom were just hired in the past two weeks, so of course we made mistakes. It isn’t our fault they’re so desperate for workers that they’re willing to put people on the floor without finishing their training.
Anyway, I spend the entire night trying to ignore her and her ranting, which meant I spent the majority of the night locked up inside of my head coming up with elaborate stories. The one I settled on was my insane plan to hunt across the world for KG, somehow befriend her and convince her to come back here and get rid of this woman. KG then took the body back to wherever it was she came from (I think it’s Japan?) where she gave the body to Xero, who had decided the best way to continue annoying his mademoiselle would be to move in with her (which is totally not canonically correct but I went with it), leading to her finding out about the cannibalism, which she would exploit as a better way to dispose of bodies instead of leaving them lying around.
I got so far into the plot that I was like “hey, this would fit great in part three of the KG / Hachi thing!” and that’s when I remembered that no one actually knows about part three of the KG / Hachi thing because I haven’t updated it in a while so everyone is in the dark about what I’m doing with it. Which then reminded me that I have yet to finish part one and part two of the KG / Hachi thing because I am trash and keep getting distracted.
So to update everyone! I’ve decided it would be best to write the fic in two (maybe three) parts. Part one will be KG’s evolution into the killer she is, up to and including her first meeting with Xero/Hachi/that-guy-whose-name-I-never-get-right. Part two will be a sort of storyline-ed, ((hopefully) mostly) canonical collection of KG / That Dude interactions. Part three (which may or may not happen) will be all the other things KK and her art have convinced me to write scenes on, some of which have no place in canon, including the sort-of smut dream KG has about That Dude.
Part one is mostly done, and is being edited and slightly rewritten. Part two is mostly written but mapped out, and needs to be edited quite a bit. Part three is planned and written in some places and not in others. Which means part 1 should be out by the end of June (I hope), part two by the end of August (again, I hope), and part three when I can get around to it.
Sorry to everyone who’s been waiting on this!!
Tl;dr work / adult life sucks and that KG / Hachi thing is still going on and will be released like so: part 1 probably soonish, part 2 mostly later, part 3 possibly eventually but equally possibly never
