WE HAVE AN OFFICIAL POSTING DATE.

We will be posting The Division Bell on Friday 24th September. Why yes, that is tomorrow.

All chapters will be posted on the same day, and we will be posting them here in this community, as well as the exquisite art created by katamarann. We'll post the chapters underneath the username reztubbers. You might also come across a link in rememberlaura, bsg_bigbang, bsg2003fics and adama_roslin (because there's nothing like some serious pimpage!). 

We can't believe we've actually made it to this point. We've worked very hard to create something that we think is very very special, and we hope that you'll all agree. We can't wait for you all to read it, and hopefully enjoy :)

Thank you, everyone!!

Hello everyone! We wanted to give you a quick update on the posting status of our story. Of course, the update is: we're still waiting on bsg_bigbang to give us a posting date. So you are just going to have to wait a little bit longer. :)

Trust us, we are as impatient as anybody to post this thing and the fantastic art that goes along with it. We really hope you enjoy it.

Once we get a posting date, we'll let you know.

Here's the last teaser before we post the whole story in mid-September! We finished the story almost a week before deadline and it's over 50,000 words. We're betaing the entire thing now and will let you know as soon as we have a firm posting date. :)

She wondered if it would have been better for everyone if Baltar had not been allowed to administer his cure on her deathbed.

Clearly, she wouldn't be the damaged goods she was now, falling apart as cancer crept throughout her body once more, steadily claiming her energy and leaving her with only a finite number of days and weeks to resolve her affairs. She would have resurrected properly to a healthy body, one unencumbered by a predisposition for cancer. There would not have been any confusion over what to do with two of her, only the shock that she wasn't really dead, assuming she chose to come back.

She knew she'd choose to come back too, though, despite how different everything might have been by the time she managed to do so.

Still, it was going to be so much worse for Bill this time than it would have been had she fully died two years ago.
