Ok guys, so I have some temporarily bad news... :blink:

 

I am delaying publication of the next chapter for one week. I am doing this because, as everyone knows, we are approaching the final batch of KoA chapters and I want to make sure the ending is as good as I can possibly make it. Things at school have been hectic lately, but spring break is in 2 weeks, which will give me more than enough time to finish everything. Next Friday, April 7th, the weekly publication schedule resumes until the end.

Since we were delayed a week, I'll post the teaser a day early. Remember, we have two regular-season chapters left, and the Knights have already clinched the West, so the playoff chapters will commence on a game-by-game basis. After the end of the season, whenever it is, we get two extra chapters, one of which will be an epilogue.

 

Oh, and in case the final line of the previous chapter didn't make it obvious: we're officially in the KoA end game now, folks. Buckle up.

 

Teaser:

 

 

Ch. 74 - Game of the Century

 

The Knights hit the home stretch of their pursuit of an undefeated season, facing their toughest opponent yet in one of the most hyped regular-season games in NFL history.

Only two chapters left! This Friday is really the last traditional chapter before the epilogue, during which we'll see players clean out their lockers and say goodbyes, some for good, plus one last Phillips/Schneider showdown. The chapter will take us close to the end of the offseason, and the epilogue will take over as the 2017 season begins.

It's stunning to me that the journey has finally come to an end, but here we are. This Friday is the last KoA chapter ever (unless I decide to revisit this someday), the epilogue.

 

I'm still working on it, but in terms of word count, it should be shorter than the average chapter. And it will essentially be split into two sections: a year-by-year summary of the Knights--key offseason moves, season record, etc., followed by a character-by-character breakdown of their lives after the 2016 season.

Update: forget what I said about word count. The epilogue will fit right in with the latter half of Part VI, somewhere between 5,500 and 6,000 words. :D

Well, I've just finished editing the epilogue. KoA is officially done, from my perspective. It feels very bittersweet, though I'd be lying if I didn't say I felt relieved.

 

I thought I would commemorate the end of our three-plus-year journey with some factoids about the series as a whole. First, some statistics:

  • Total Word Count: 388,678
  • Average Word Count: 4,798 words per chapter
  • Longest Chapter: (tie) The Battle of San Andreas, Treatment - 6,433 words
  • Shortest Chapter: Face of the Franchise - 2,458 words

And two fun facts:

  • The KoA narrative followed six football seasons, during which the Knights' total record was 70-35-1.
  • The first and last Knights wins in KoA were thanks to a goal-line stand by the defense.
