“A Campus Christmas (Twenty Years Later)”, pt. 13 (conclusion), has been posted to the Writing Desk.
With this final update, The “twenty years later” vignette in the “Campus”-verse has come to a close (pt. 13 is the one I would advise not to read at work, but then again, you may be working from home at the moment and/or have a great pokerface). It has not taken me quite until the next Christmas, but it has been 9 months in the making (not counting the years of plot bunnies beforehand).
In the next few days, I have to travel into a Corona-heavy zone and I wanted to have this wrapped up and done before I leave. If it is the last thing I were to ever write, I think I will have gone out with a bang, bad pun fully intended.
The plan is, of course, to write more, when time permits: the second half of “Stages” being the first thing on the list, but I have already joked (joked until it wasn’t quite a joke anymore) that, in another twenty years and in case I am still around by then, I might revisit “Campus” again. When this place – in case it is still around – will have been renamed “Shady Belcanto Pines” and everyone including Bjarne will be retired.
This is it, for now.
