I am working on Chapter 12 of Retired right now. I can either end it here completely or create two versions. If I create two versions, one will be for SOL and end while the other will be posted elsewhere, and continue at least for another chapter or two. All the way through Chapter 11, this story has hewed to the restrictions of this site. But Chapter 12 is a stopping point on the plot as it exists. So long as I stay within the guidelines here, there really is no more story to tell, at least of any real value. I can drag it out many more chapters but the story will not advance, just changes in partners and that really doesn't interest me. I have enough to post a chapter a weekend until mid January. The question remains, what happens then?
