Hey all! [livejournal.com profile] randomslasher here.

For anyone who might've been curious about that last posting, it was more than just a random fic written in response to Thursday's wonderful news. It actually fits into an extensive universe--one which has over 80 pages written in it already, though it's hard to get a truly accurate count, as we wrote it everywhere and it's somewhat scattered.

We call it "Engagement Verse," and it is, essentially, a Muse Utopia: a world where we have given our characters happy lives without regard to plot or plausibility. We have a verse like this for nearly all of our recurrent characters; with the amount of angst fic we write, it's good to have an outlet where our boys can just be happy. Utterly, ridiculously, Hallmark Christmas Special happy.

So, what's my point telling you this? After a bit of a discussion--and after the reception "Legalized" received, in spite of the fact it was written via hurried, excited email exchanges while both [livejournal.com profile] thuri and I were at work--we've decided we're going to polish Engagement Verse up a little, and open its journal to the public.

Why would we do this? Well, we've been writing in so many fandoms lately it's been difficult to finish anything, and to be honest, we feel a little bad for our lack of productivity here at Randomweaver. But we also decided our primary reasons for keeping this verse locked up--ie, its deviation from canon both in plot and in characterization--weren't really all that valid. They were the same reasons we considered not posting Changeling, after all. And we're very, very glad we posted Changeling.

So, what's all this mean for you guys? Basically, in a couple days, we'll be posting a link to the journal where Engagement Verse is being written. We may unlock the entries as we clean them, or we may decide to let you guys just read the raw product; I don't know. What I do know is this: we make no apologies for this 'verse. It's sap, pure and simple. And any universe where Perry Cox goes down on one knee in the middle of a crowded restaurant is bound to be OOC.

But for those interested in reading some schmoop anyway...stay tuned. It will soon be available in all its cavity-causing abundance. :)

Bring on the schmoop! I could really use some and in my book well written schmoop beats poorly written fic that hold closely to canon. It's nice to imagine a happier world for the characters we love. I am so excited!

Wonderful news, I love all your stories, but... please oh please, what about "Survivor" (unashamedely begging)?

We've got four of the remaining...um...I wanna say nine?...chapters already back from beta. We're working to apply the changes and we'll be posting the rest of it very soon!

They are both wonderful things. After all, the way JD and Perry Cox attract angst in fic they deserve a little Utopia. I can't wait to read it.


P.S. I don't think I've commented here before but I do enjoy all of your Scrubs stories.

Where's the link?! I want to read this universe soooo bad. I was so excited to hear about the legalization of gay marriage in California, and it just makes sense for there to be a fic reflecting this change!

Please, post up the link!
