    Yes I think we've agreed on three fics, but overall we all have very different tastes and find different things annoying. If we have to vote on which direction a fic takes, I imagine half of us will be continually disappointed

    I thought it would be interesting to let us diverge and find out about the story path each other ends up reading.

    So not really reading it as a group? We could do both I guess, read it as a group and vote on everything, and read our own version separately and report back

    I was thinking we'd read as a group and see where/when we diverged, if we did, and then hear as each of us is going along what was happening in the alternate route and what other choices were being made. Possibly updating each other every five or so chapters. But I'm probably making it over complicated and I'll just go with whatever option makes sense to everyone when we get to it.

    Maybe we should just start reading it and then see if we want to take the same paths or if we want to diverge. I haven`t yet made up my mind and I haven`t read this story or these kind of stories before therefore I don`t really know what to expect. But it`ll be months til we get there anyway

    I'd wait until we're all able to read it together. If we're not discussing the differences as we split off on tangents and all just read beforehand we'll just be posting about stories without 'seeing' where we diverged as well. I'm only just about to start Hunger and probably won't manage the Lilachigh fic with everyone else. If this one starts now as well there's no chance I'll be joining in. Hearing about the differences when you follow different paths I think is what's interesting about this fic, if we're all doing it at different times it won't be as clear what/why the splits happened I don't think. I suppose it really depends what we're wanting to achieve.

    Hey guys,

    I just wanted to ask you if you would want to take (another) break from the group reading and discussing. I have the feeling as if we are all a bit exhausted at the moment and maybe a break woul do us good. Some of us (including me) are still reading Strip Snap. We could just continue doing that and maybe start a new fic altogether somewhere in the middle of June. Maybe you could also let me knwo if you would rather proceed with a short fic or a longer one. The next two fics on the list are more than 100k words but I could always pick a shorter one.

    There is a list of the upcoming fics at the bottom of the very first post of this thread. The list gets updated regularily. if you want to have a look at the fics that we will read and discuss next or if you want to check which we already have read or if a certain fic has been suggested before, you can always have a look at this list.

    I would like a bit of a break personally. I think the middle of June would be a good time to aim for.

    I don't really mind if we read a longer or shorter fic, but I do enjoy something I can get my teeth into, so maybe a longer fic? But I'm happy to read anything

    I haven't started Strip Snap yet, but might get the chance to read it in the next couple of weeks. My free time is likely to be problematic for a while now, so I'm a bit unpredictable and should generally be ignored. If I can drop in and join I will, but there's a fair chance I'll rock up weeks late on a read again or just need to skip odd ones.

    I've read And Here We Go Round Again by Megan, A New Dawn by kally77 and Affinity by Ginmar before but would happily join you for a reread of any of those if I have the time when you come to them.

    Offers You Can't Refuse is one I've also read before but it is really long and I'm less interested in rereading that so I probably won't join for that. Likewise Origins by Niamh is pretty long and I've actually read that twice before, so probably wouldn't join you for that either. It's worth noting this is part one of a series that is incredibly huge altogether. I think one of the other main stories is about 300k, another around 50k and another about 150k, with a few smaller ones between. Chiaroscuro is one of the rare stories that I stopped reading only a handful of chapters into. I've seen it rec'd a few times since so I might give it a go again, but am less likely to join for that.

    The others I haven't read before but would try to join in with. But Can I Rest Now by Eve is a nice short one that shouldn't be a problem to fit in and I don't read many post series fics so I'm looking forward to that. I'll also try to join for That I May Cease to Be by cousinjean which sounds really unusual. I'd read Clearance by Teacle Antlers if I'm free and Betrayed Forgotten Abandoned by Loup Noir too. Although there's a greater risk I won't fit the Loup Noir fic because it's a large one. I'm not sure about The Cyrano Factor by medievalchic. I tend to feel a bit put off by stories that say they are going to cover all the seasons as they can be a bit boring if it recaps too closely for so long, but I'll give it a go if I'm free.

    @flow - Thanks! It pushed me to start my third re-watch: I only finished the second last night! In fact, I only got into it because of a cross-over fic we read on here!

    Did you find the NC-17 epilogues that are mentioned on fanfic.net with the fic description but don't seem to be included in the fic on there DD? I was going to take a copy of the story for when we read it.

    Haven't we read this as a group before? I feel like we have, or it's been talked about often.
