        Unfortunately I can't find it at this point either. I'm... reasonably certain it was on FF.net? I think? I saw it once years ago so I'm certain of very little.

      Hi, I understand you may still be stalled or uninspired about Bootstrapping, but are there any other projects or snippets that you can share?

      Bootstrapping is dead or in hiatus?

        as of 5/27/23 on the spacebattles bootstrapping thread Tersin said they were halfway to two thirds done with the current ark but it is not coming easily to them so I think it is safe to say that it is only a hiatus.

        This is an old comment, but she isn't really paired. She has a few background relationships, but really the primary in-story "use" for her sexuality is to avoid lecherous men, arranged marriages, and the like.

      Woke up at about 11 am the day before the day before yesterday and spent an hour on Reddit before I found bootstrapping. I have gotten 4 hours of sleep and 2 meals since then, busy binge reading. It’s 2:40 AM and I just read the last update. Thanks <3

      Hi Tersin I'm just wondering if bootstrapping is still ongoing or if its on Hiatus, just wonder as it feels like it's hast been updated in a long time, I'm not sure if that's just because the last while has felt like it has dragged on. Sorry for bothering you

        No worries. It's not on hiatus, as such. I'm struggling with my health at the moment, which has made writing hard. I'm still working on the next chapter, I have no intention of stopping, but everything is going really slowly at the moment. Thank you for checking in, interest like yours make it easier to keep pushing ahead.

      I'm currently devouring Bootstrapping, and I cannot sing enough praises. Excellent plot, amazing premise, memorable characters that flesh out the world's, not a hyper focus on the main characters, it should be a published book. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

      I cannot wait to see more!

      Hi, just read the halloween special, awesome work by the way, and felt like re-reading Bootstraping 1.
      But the thread seems to have vanished... Did you take it down?
      edit. Ignore me, I'm being silly and confused myself.
      Now that I took a second look its all in the same thread... xD
      1. Tersin
        I haven't, though the only place where I separated Book 1 and 2 is on FF.net. Here, on SB, and SV it's all one thread.

      So the AO3 version of Bootstrapping is missing the chapter "Book 1 - So Close" between "Fire" and "Preparation For Goodbye"

        So it is. I’ll fix that just as soon as I get in front of a computer.

        IIRC, the forces involved there are easily enough to lift a person's weight. The gecko can only detach since the angle change of stepping deactivates the attraction.
        So if that's was from a fact rather than a choice for later non-OP-ness you could add it back.

        I didn’t go into detail, but it’s more that what she tried to attach herself to couldn’t support her weight. The ‘grip’ doesn’t go deep enough so the top layer of whatever she’s tried to attach herself to tends to be torn off.

      Is this bootstrapping going to differ from the SpaceBattles version?
      1. Tersin
        Nothing that's already written is going to change. Going forward there's likely to be content here that doesn't appear on SB.
