Beyond the Stained Glass

IRON BEHIND THE VELVET

 

Iron Behind the Velvet is not yet posted.

 

 Volumes 1 and 2 are complete and will be online soon

(There are 78 chapters to copy and paste – I felt like I just had to get everything else up first.)

There’s been some editing done along, though the storyline won’t seem changed. There are some details added here and there, some clarifications, some wording changes (some commas put in and then taken out). The most obvious changes appear in Chapter 1! 

  

Volume 3 is still in progress and will go up chapter by chapter. 

 

I’m grateful to readers who still remember where I left off (Vincent in the soaking pool!) and to anyone who starts this journey today. Once this website has the quirks worked out of it, I’ll focus on writing to the end of I/V, an end that is in sight!

All subsequent stories in this arc are flash forwards from Iron/Velvet, but do not depend on its story line. If you’d rather not begin an in-progress story, you can skip on to Everything Is Waiting For You without having read any of Iron/Velvet. Though, in the long (maybe long, long) run, Iron/Velvet will have offered up hints of the stories after it – these written already and those to come.

Thank you all for your patience. I never expected Iron/Velvet to be such a long story or to take me to so many places Below and Above. I can’t not finish it, even though it’s taking forever. 

My best,
Carole

 

The Beyond the Stained Glass arc continues with Everything Is Waiting For You.

    • Hey, Dawn! It’s so nice to see you here. Thank you for visiting! I’m excited to have this site up and running – it has taken me far too long. I’ll be getting the first 78 chapters of Iron/Velvet posted soon, and the third and final volume will (surely) begin to show up. I’m really grateful you have remembered me and this story.

  2. Hi Carole! I’m back and so anxious for I/V to reappear here! I was reading it over at the old site and had gotten through Chapter 50, when I was redirected here. I love this long story so much! HUGS, Lindariel

    • I’m anxious to see it reappear too! I so want to spend time with this story … and take it to its conclusion. The characters are really tapping their feet – it sounds like a performance of ‘Stomp’ in my head! Thank you so much for your encouragement. The old Imagine has a redirect on it now, which does cause some issues I hadn’t thought of. Those issues are prompts to get Iron/Velvet back up and going as fast as I can. 🙂

  3. Iron Behind The Velvet haunts me. I can’t wait to see how it all turns out. You have created a beautiful world for our two favorite characters and everyone else Above and Below.

    • Hey, Barbara! It’s such a nice surprise hearing from you. Believe me, I, too, am anxious for how this story turns out. I’m making edits and will be putting the story back up chapter by chapter very soon. Now, I know you’ve heard that before! But I’m promising, and I’m committed to get through to the end. Thank you so much for remembering this story’s beginning and middle – the “end is (relatively) nigh”! 🙂

  4. Hi Carole. It’s been a while since I’ve visited your site (at least 2 years). I came to see if I could read the last chapters of ‘Iron Behind the Velvet’ but sadly I see it’s no longer online. It’s been years since you first started posting the ‘Iron Behind the Velvet’ story, but then removed it to re-edit it and post it when completed. I’ll like to know if it this story will ever be completed and published here? It would be a travesty if it never happens.

    • Hi, Sonia! It has been a long time, hasn’t it, that I’ve heard from you and that I’ve posted any updates to Iron/Velvet. Real life has been busy and that and other BatB activities have delayed the reposting of this story. In the middle of everything else causing delays, I moved the old Blogger site to a regular website (that required new skills acquisition). Then recently I moved the site from one host to another (more new skills required.) And this summer has been unusually busy. However! I’m heading into what I hope remains a calmer, quieter fall. I have the first 78 chapters to repost (this will take a while, but I am ready to go), and then the rest of the story will unfold. Maybe not as quickly as you might wish – I know I’ve tried your patience. But please know it makes a difference hearing that you still remember this story and care to see it finish up. I’m taking your message here as a nudge of encouragement. 😀
