  • anywhere-is-better-than-hereIf I were writing 187 I probably would have given up before chapter 10. Big kudos to you for taking on such an ambitious project and congratulations on being so close to finishing. :)
  • Thank you so much, friend! The easiest way to not give up is to just put in your time every day and not think about the big number. I forced myself to write at least 200 words a day… which would sometimes end up being a thousand! And maybe one day’s work would turn out complete trash because I was exhausted or something, but that’s what revisions are for. Give yourself a good buffer to work with if you’ve got a release schedule so meeting your daily goal isn’t any stress at all. Then you’re golden! ♥

Again, I’m afraid I don’t want to say too much about Jack’s motivation, but I agree with many of the points you’ve made. I’m going to have to leave it there, for fear of spoiling the people who do intend to finish the story.

Other scattered notes: 

  • White supremacist gangs frequently brand their slaves, and when Ozymandias aired, people posted screencaps of what looked like swastika-shaped blood stains on Jesse’s shirt. I ran with it.
  • There’s not much I can say about your personal dislike for the use of Stockholm Syndrome in fiction. To each their own. But I will say that a lot of Jesse’s behaviors and delusions come from what I’ve observed in my own life and victims of abuse that I’ve personally encountered, as well as what we’ve seen of his own desperation and search for approval throughout the series itself. To call it fanservice skirts on offensive to me, so I’m leaving it there.
  • I find Jesse’s empathy to be what really makes Jesse Jesse, and maybe we disagree there. But there you have the core I’m operating around in this particular story, with regards to what changes and what remains of his personality. My Jesse is fighting these people in the best way he knows how, which involves clinging to his humanism as much as it involves his insolence.
  • I’m sure I have many critics out there, only a handful of whom have or will come forth with a critique. Many people like this story and I’m grateful to all of them. I’m also grateful to the people who tried it and found that it wasn’t for them. I never presumed to deliver something that everyone would like, particularly in choosing such a controversial point in canon to work from. All I can say is thanks for reading, and thanks for your feedback and your commitment, for however long it lasted.

First off, thank you for your critique. There are a few points here I’d like to address and others I’ll leave untouched, because there are still about two weeks’ worth of chapters to go, and quite a lot remaining in that text which I think will address those issues without me having to explain them.

Hmmmm. I don’t think there’s really a “purpose” for fanfic, at least not on a level that goes beyond personal fulfillment. You’re writing happy endings, and that’s awesome, but not everyone is setting out to tell that kind of story and there’s no reason to expect that they should. Sometimes there’s simply an aspect of canon that’s lacking and begs to be explored further in fanworks. To use myself as an example: I hated Jesse’s slavery arc. It felt pointless as it was presented in canon, turning Jesse into more of a plot device than a character. So I wanted to find the human meaning of it. I wanted to spend time with Jesse in that place, every single day he was there, and to take that journey with him. I wanted to track his growth. I wanted to learn about these people around him, who were barely characters in canon. I wanted to sort out their motivations, to find their humanity in the same way earlier canon delivered Gus. And I wanted to see Jesse survive and save himself in some way, because I loathed nothing more than watching Walt get to play the hero in the end when he was really the villain who did this to Jesse in the first place. So I wrote 187. It may not be a happy story, but I like to think it’s a hopeful one, and most of all, I’m writing it to give myself closure.

  • AnonymousJust curious, but how far ahead into 187 do you write? Or do you just go day by day?
  • The entire story is outlined (as is the sequel) but I tend to write each chapter just a few days in advance of posting. Lately I’ve been in the hospital or otherwise away from my computer so my posting time’s a little erratic. I’m not even home right now, haha. I’m on my phone. So tonight’s gonna be a little late too. I’m sorry, everyone!
