On the Way to Greatness


5 / 10

The author insists this one isn't abandoned, but... well, its been years since she started insisting. I'm inclined to call this one done.

Unfortunately, this one ends in a pretty unsatisfying place. If the author ever resurrects this, it'd be great to re-read up until the conclusion, but for now I can't say much about it -- a good chunk of the writing feels like a prequel, and it got interrupted just as it hit its stride.

There's a good deal of interesting character interactions in this one and some cool takes on the plotline. The authors choice to have the number of chapters per year increase as a linear function of the year was an interesting one -- it certainly pushed the storyline's growth in proportion to "when the interesting stuff was happening".
