On the Voices front, the next chapter will be up tomorrow. After an impromptu Christmas shopping trip yesterday took away a good portion of my time, I came home with every intention of working on it, only to end up spending 4 hours on the phone with angstchic. I didn't get to bed until well after 2am, and so the chapter didn't get done. It will be today, though, and beta'd tonight, so tomorrow morning is looking like the posting time.
In regards to my upcoming trip...we fly from the UK on Sunday morning, but we are actually leaving early on Saturday to visit some friends and then drop the kids off with Nana and Grandad, so there will most likely not be anything posted over the weekend. There will most definitely be at least the one more Voices chapter posted and one more Rook up before I go, but I'm going to try my darndest to make it more. We'll see what reality plans, though. I am also in the process of writing a short (3-4 chapters) post-Rhapsody in Oil fluffy/smutty story as a thank you to kallysten, nikita_80, and echidnas_pen, but I'm not going to post it until it's done, so be on the lookout for that to show up some time while I'm away.
And no, angstchic, I'm not spreading myself too thin... :)
