Beyond the Stained Glass

IRON BEHIND THE VELVET

 

Iron Behind the Velvet is not a finished story. 

 

Volumes 1 and 2 are complete. Chapters to be posted asap.

Volume 3 is still in progress. 

 

Iron Behind the Velvet does reference stories that precede it in the arc, so it’s best enjoyed if you’ve read the earlier ones. All subsequent stories in this arc are flash forwards from Iron/Velvet but don’t really 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 run, Iron/Velvet will have offered up hints of the stories after it – those written already and those to come.

The first 78 chapters of this story were once published on my old Blogger site but have been “in edit” for “a bit”, LOL, while the world conspired to keep it on a back burner. Earlier readers might notice a few changes to the details of the storyline. There have been, will be, both expansion and reduction in wordiness. Commas will go in, come out, and go in again. 

Please read my journal post on this story’s return HERE. 

 

*** Adult Content Note *** 

 

Intimate moments between Vincent and Catherine appear with some regularity throughout this story, their ratings varying from mild to very gauzy. If you’d rather skip such content, as you read, you should be able to anticipate said moments by the, ummm, rising action. 🙂 If a chapter is all or mostly steamy, I’ll note that on the chapter’s page, just under the title.

    • Lois, thank you! Thank you for visiting, thank you for reading, and thank you for letting me know you’ve enjoyed the stories here! It makes such a difference – I’m encouraged to keep after the writing.

      I do hope you’ll check back often for upcoming chapters. I’ll probably try your patience, but I’ll get the next ones up asap. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, visit this year’s Winterfest Online – and all the past WFOLS – for so many BatB treats.

      Follow the candles to begin the opening ceremony festivities or just click on the Winterfest logo to go straight to the Great Hall.

      Thank you again for your kind words. You have made my day!

      My best,
      Carole

  2. Hi! As a huge fan whose known that this project would be taking you a long while, I just wanted to say that I’m so excited to see that you’ve started on Volume 2! I know you’re doing your best and I’m just glad that there’s still at least on fantastic writer who is writing for this magical couple SO many years later <3

    • Thank you, EK! I’m stunned by your kind words that encourage me to keep working on this story. Knowing that you’re reading, that you’re enjoying it, means everything. Your patience is a gift to me and I’m incredibly grateful. This has been kind of a “real-life year”.

      I’m humbled by your praise, grateful for that, too, so very grateful. There are BatB writers out there who make me weep with amazement and some amount of envy – I want to put my head on my desk and give up sometimes – but you have really lifted my spirits. I hope the rest of this story will make you glad to keep reading.

      My best, always,
      Carole
