Now that Confidence Lost is done, I’ve decided to rewind a bit and recover the story I’d actually started before that one. It’s a Batman/Arthurian legends tale called Blade of Misfortune.
If you’ve read the already posted chapters, though, I wouldn’t get too attached to them. As I re-read them yesterday, I’ve decided they need a rewrite. This is primarily because I want to switch the story to that of a third-person perspective, rather than the first-person perspective it’s in currently.
I have no idea, currently, when I’ll start posting chapters. Rest assured that you all will be the first to know when it happens.
Does anyone have any comments or questions?
The Batman/White Collar crossover story Confidence Lost is now completed.
It’s taken six months, thirty-three chapters, and nearly 80k words, but the story is finally done. I hope all of you who were following the tale enjoyed the ride. It was a pretty wild one at times.
First off, to those of you who have never read the story, you can links to find all the chapters organized at this table-of-contents page for the story here.
For those of you who have finished reading the story, I’m inviting all of you to send in your questions and comments about Confidence Lost. If there’s anything you want to know about this combined DC/WC world I created, a plot point that needed clarifying, or the status of certain characters throughout or after the timeline of the story, then feel free to ask. I will answer them and post the responses publicly here.
Send me your questions and comments here.
Thanks for taking the time to read follow this story all the way to its conclusion. I appreciate all my wonderful readers.
