OK, my TF issues have been fixed, but you may have some if you have an active BareFARK subscription. I will try to give you TF if you ask, but it may not go through. FarkBack will fix your BF if you ask, but it might take a while, so let them know! Now back to the show...

Hello again, FARK! Tin Soldier is my web serial and it's free to read, although you will turn up my Patreon page if you look for it and want to help me pay for the webspace in exchange for some extra stuff and that warm feeling you get from supporting your local writer.
House Rules

-For a month of free TF, JUST ROLL UP AND ASK FOR IT. Seriously, you guys. I'm about to stop buying TF and start giving to the food bank because nobody wants it and I'm going on break in October anyway. I'm not sure what that will do to my vague association with FARK, but Tin Soldier will continue in 2021, so bookmark it.
--You can comment here or there, but if you comment there, remember to link me back to your profile here so I know who to give the TF! I have to OK you for your comments to show up, but I should get to you by the end of the day.
---I do not have total control over my comments module and there is a filter that automatically puts comments with words it thinks are swearing in the trash. If your comment does NOT show up, try to word a second comment veeeery caaarefully and tell me to check the trash. I should be able to restore what you originally tried to say. You know, if it's not just a spammy mess of swearing.
-You can start from the very beginning or hit up the New Readers' Page for other places to pick up the story.
-Ask me anything! In-character answers available upon request.
-Spoilers OK, but warn people.
-The site is probably not FARKed. Check your security settings and extensions first, and maybe try again tomorrow. It may be loading too slowly for your connection, that's my best guess. I am right by an internet node with the fastest possible speed and I can't test this theory.
-Support FARK! - there are lots of new options!
-If nothing else, you can post ponies, I'm a fan.

This week: It's still a magic storm! Part eleven! Last week, Lucy's highchair died spectacularly. This week, it's time to pick up the pieces, literally and figuratively - and Seth has a bit of an issue with being force-fed the sensations of falling off a roof and shattering. As one would.

ALSO this week!: I'm half-assing a contest! Would you like to design a mecha for a baby and win three months of TF? I have no idea, but I'm giving you the chance! If enough people are interested, runners up will get one month of TF.

Lucy's highchair needs a redesign, because I'm drawing things differently now. I'm outsourcing! I can't promise you I'll use the winning design because I'm not all that great at drawing, especially technical things. But I'll post it here and on the site and give you credit and TF.

Give Tin Soldier a click and you'll see Hyacinth say: "I am going to find out where you live and send clowns to your house..."

Thanks everyone for clicking and reading - And helping! TIN SOLDIER IS GOING ON A LONG BREAK AFTER OCTOBER 11TH, and I'm not sure if my association with FARK will continue after I return, SO PLEASE BOOKMARK IT IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE READING. I am hoping to get at least one Amazon-ready book together by the time I start up again, so stay tuned for updates.
