WHAT IS PSATCWOT ?

PSATCWOT, aka Pattering Steps Among The Crushing Wheels Of Time, is a story which is posted on my site semi regularly. It's intended to be a long and slightly discontinuous work of fiction, separated into parts called Cycles. Each cycle tells its own story, and although a lot of cycles can be read as a standalone story, they still all fit together in a single storyline.

As said above, each cycle is its own self-contained story. They can be read in any order, however, even if they are mostly chronological. Each cycle serves as the deep lore of the next cycle : cycle 3 is the deep lore of cycle 4, and cycle 4 is the deep lore of cycle 5. Because of this, it's possible to read PSATCWOT both from oldest cycle to newest, or from newest to oldest.
If however you still want an "intended" order, then too bad. There is no intended order. You could read random pages after random pages and that would probably be very enriching.

And now, for a brief explanation of each cycle ! that way you can easily see which one interests you and which one you want to start with.

C9 : outremer bureau
There's lesbians in this one. Can be read completely independantly from the rest of PSATCWOT.

about the frequency of the updates : before starting to release a cycle, i want to make sure it's finished. this is of course the writing process, but also the editing process. There may be some pauses of indeterminate length between cycles, but when a wywle starts, it's updated sdaily at the rhythm of a page per day (or, well, at least i try.)
