What Shall We Do For Halloween?

Raythe sez:  As you might have noticed, there is a little pumpkin icon over October 31, 2013 on the schedule.  The question I have for all of you is: what should we do for it?

I have some ideas, but I want to hear yours.  First, here’s what I’m thinking:

Have an extra chapter of an existing work!

Sanctuary and The Pact are both Halloweeny-type stories.  In fact, The Pact: Dunhaven will likely be starting this month and who doesn’t want a little more Hogwarts on Meth?

Sanctuary, of course, is one of our favorite vampire tales that people can’t get enough of!  So that’s an option, too.

But I’m open to any of the stories being updated.



Also, even if you think your idea won’t get chosen this time around, please put any requests as well in the comments. I would love to hear and maybe I can swing them for another time!

    I was thinking Sanctuary even before I read the blog post so I’m sticking to my guns and say extra goodness to Sanctuary. <3

  2. Sara October 15, 2013 at 12:10 am #

    Id love to see an extra chapter of Sanctuary:D I hope this comment went through, Im having some internet connections trouble.

  3. Amy October 15, 2013 at 12:10 am #

    I’d either want Neo-Tokyo or Sanctuary. Can’t decide which though 🙂

  4. Lia Zabala October 15, 2013 at 12:14 am #

    Santuary or abyssy

  5. Lia Zabala October 15, 2013 at 12:16 am #

    Sanctuary or the pact or abyssy in that order XD

  6. novita angeria October 15, 2013 at 12:26 am #

    I really love if you decide to update Sanctuary this halloween. After all, Sanctuary is one of my favorite story.

  7. Jubilee October 15, 2013 at 12:28 am #

    I’m really into Cursed. But if I have to choose between Sanctuary and The Pact, I choose Sanctuary 🙂

  9. Hdavis0513 October 15, 2013 at 12:37 am #

    I request “The Fell” or “The Abyss”… Or Cursed, cursed is good too xD

  10. Hdavis0513 October 15, 2013 at 12:40 am #

    Oops Ok Never mind my bad, only got half the message lol choose the pact!

  11. Yukinechan October 15, 2013 at 12:50 am #

    If the options are just Sanctuary or The Pact…i go wih The Pact.
    But if the options are ALL of the histories, i choose The Fell, Neo Tokyo and Cursed, in that order.

  12. Sora42 October 15, 2013 at 1:00 am #

    I would have to say Cursed, because it’s new and so far we’re only seeing it a few times a month. I would vote for Sanctuary second, because it is also on the short list for updates. I love them both though!

    • Kayla Craig October 15, 2013 at 3:50 am #

      Your right it really hasn’t gotten to shine like the other stories just because it is newer then they are.

  13. ddarkbloom October 15, 2013 at 1:14 am #

    I was thinking either The Fell or Cursed… though, I see where the vote is going and I really wouldn’t mind more of Sanctuary either. Though intense-angsty-conflicted-Devil-Nate sounds soo good toooo! Okay. If its between Sanctuary and The Pact I may have to pick The Pact. Out of all of them: The Fell, Cursed, The Pact. In that order. YAYAYAY! HALLOWEEN UPDATE!!

  14. Jessica October 15, 2013 at 1:40 am #

    I want more Fell!!! However, since everyone is voting for Sanctuary or Pact, I guess I’ll swing for Sanctuary, too.

  15. Jordan October 15, 2013 at 1:47 am #

    Cursed! Or Sanctuary. Love both

  16. Jessica October 15, 2013 at 1:52 am #

    The pact, abyss or fell

  17. River_Iris October 15, 2013 at 1:58 am #

    I’m sure anything will be great, but as I am reading ‘The Darkening’, this seems almost too perfect for a horror Halloween outtake (maybe pre-story). I only read one story at a time as a rule, and I have only yet gotten through three, so anything from the stories you mentioned would be fine and something to look forward to reading when I get there.

    • Kayla Craig October 15, 2013 at 3:45 am #

      Didn’t think about Darkening but your right that one would fit too. okay any of the three I listed would be go for me.

  18. Topaz111111 October 15, 2013 at 2:13 am #

    Sanctuary, Neo-Tokyo, or The Fell. Any one of those three would totally make it AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

    • Topaz111111 October 15, 2013 at 2:16 am #

      Oh crack! I just skimmed through the comments when I read that someone put Cursed too! THAT’S ON MY FAVE LIST ALSO!!!! PLEASE!!! ANY OF THE FOUR WOULD MAKE MY NIGHT SOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER!!!!!

      • Teicu October 15, 2013 at 2:48 am #

        Oh man, cursed is a major fav of mine too! I would so go for that and it can totally fit that Halloween feel!

  19. Amaterashu October 15, 2013 at 2:19 am #

    Although it seems I’m on the “losing” side I’ll still give my vote to Pact as it’s one of my favorites. If we get to vote out of all of your stories then it’s a tie between Pact and Fell.

  20. sael October 15, 2013 at 2:34 am #

    I’m all for another chapter of The Fell for this month, but an extra update to Sanctuary would appreciated as well. 🙂

  21. Samantha October 15, 2013 at 2:38 am #

    Either Neo-Tokyo or The Fell please 😀 !

  22. Teicu October 15, 2013 at 2:45 am #

    I know it’s not running anymore’ but for Halloween I think it would be awesome if you did a one-shot of Birth Right. Especially since the added paragraph to the ending, a new one-shot of a super sexy tryst Justin has with Peren while sleeping…a dream, or a nightmare? Or maybe not imagined at all…

    • Jack October 16, 2013 at 5:12 am #

      I would like an extra chapter of Birthright as well. It holds a special place in my heart because it was the purchase of the Birthright novel on amazon that led me here to Raythe Reign. I have always hoped that you would continue the story.

      If an extra of Birthright is not possible for Halloween, then I would like an extra chapter of Cursed.

  23. Ravin October 15, 2013 at 2:49 am #

    The Fell, Sanctuary or Abyss. Please don’t make me choose!

  24. Anelir October 15, 2013 at 3:24 am #

    Sanctuary or Curse because they both strike me as Halloween like ^^ I will also be working that day 🙁 so I look forward to whatever you post <3

  25. Kayla Craig October 15, 2013 at 3:38 am #

    Either The Fell or Neo-Tokyo for me. The Neo-Tokyo has the whole ghost thing going for it on the All-Hollows-Eve. I know one view is that sprits are a big time thing with Halloween. So why not a story with them in it? And I know that the Fell is more Christmas and all but leaving like that just won’t do at all and the sooner another chapter of it is out the better. That and I am already in the mood for that time of the year.

  26. Keith October 15, 2013 at 6:02 am #

    I would be the most happy with a bonus chapter Leonais/Nico (maybe as an extra short story of its own, rather than in The Abyss itself ?), or with The Fell!!!!

  27. Bethany October 15, 2013 at 6:22 am #

    I’d have to say Cursed or Sanctuary (in that order) since they are both my faves! 🙂

  28. Abbie October 15, 2013 at 8:00 am #

    I request “The Fell”. Can’t seem to get enough of it. If the Fell is not in the running due to the current voting then the next best thing would be Sanctuary.

  29. Chia October 15, 2013 at 9:22 am #

    The Fell and Sanctuary, in that order of preference, please! 🙂

  30. Hilde October 15, 2013 at 10:54 am #

    okay, I was all for “The Pact” or ” The Fell”, but actually, a side story about Leonais and Nico, would be perfect. So I’m voting for that.

  31. Vidya October 15, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

    I’ll be honest, when I saw that pumpkin picture on the schedule I was hoping for a completely new short or a continuation of Birth Rite. I hope you will consider writing a sequel to Birth Rite in the future.

    If it’s going to be an extra chapter of an active story, I can’t get the Fell out of my head after the last update. But, if it’s between the Pact and Sanctuary, I pick sanctuary.

    It’s almost better that we don’t get to know what’s going on. Now I get to look forward to a new chapter AND finding out which it is!

  32. Bethany October 15, 2013 at 5:54 pm #

    I say Curse or Sanctuary, and by the way, I’d absolutely love for the next chapter of Sanctuary to be from D’s pov.
    But I love all the stories being updated at the moment so really it’s all good ; )

  33. Sarrasi October 15, 2013 at 6:30 pm #

    I would really like Cursed to be updated please 🙂 But since EVERYTHING YOU WRITE IS UTTER PERFECTION ANY WAY, I honestly don’t mind xx
    I hope you have a great Halloween! Don’t work too hard xx

  34. ssr31 October 15, 2013 at 6:50 pm #

    Sanctuary has my first vote. Or Neo-Tokyo. Or Cursed. Or the Abyss. Gah, it’s too hard to choose!

  35. medchan October 15, 2013 at 7:25 pm #

    While it’s really exciting to hear that the second segiment of the Pact is starting up (this story will always hold a special place for me because it’s the reason I became a member and got to read so many amazing stories–I had to read more of it)

    I vote Cursed. I absolutely adore the story. If it’s a decision between Sanctuary and the Pact, then as much as I love Sanctuary, I have to chose Pact. ^^ Good luck figuring out which one to update~ It seems the favorite is Sanctuary so far but who knows!

    • medchan October 15, 2013 at 7:39 pm #

      So, because I was curious, I tallied it up as far as my comment went. If anyone comments after me, that can change it. SO FOR THOSE CURIOUS, THIS IS HOW THE VOTES ARE RANKING SO FAR!

      Sanctuary: 20
      Fell: 17
      Cursed: 14
      Abyss: 7
      Neo-Tokyo: 6
      Pact: 6
      Birth Right: 2 (I would love an update of this as well, so make that 3)
      Darkening: 1

      The Sea: 0
      Artifact: 0
      Dark Earth:0
      Drakon: 0 (this surprised me since so many people seemed to love it so much)
      Lightless: 0
      The Hunt: 0
      Deep Within: 0
      Price for Passage: 0

      • Samantha October 25, 2013 at 11:43 pm #

        Once again I would like either The Fell or Neo-Tokyo! Either one will make me super happy 😀 !

  36. brsmelcer October 16, 2013 at 1:54 am #

    I would really like to see more of Cursed myself. I am really excited to see how it pans out.

  37. Jessie October 16, 2013 at 5:05 am #

    I vote cursed absolutely love it . it’s fun and exciting can’t wait for more updates

  38. Keith October 16, 2013 at 12:15 pm #

    “please put any requests as well in the comments”
    Oh my, you shouldn’t have said that… Can we also have a new Scott/Jordan illu?? XD
    Werewolves are Halloween creatures after all.

  39. dragongal0925 October 16, 2013 at 1:26 pm #

    I could see a scene where Sanctuary is holding a Halloween party. If it is The Fell that wins,I want to see someone’s reaction. Third, I would like to see GNT.

  40. Renne October 16, 2013 at 3:19 pm #

    I’m excited for the Nico x Leonais “side,” but in keeping with a Halloween-y theme, I’d have to go with Sanctuary. Especially if they threw a Halloween-themed party, as someone else already commented! That would be too fun.

  41. arty October 16, 2013 at 6:46 pm #

    The Fell or Pact, in that order of preference

  42. flyingmoon October 16, 2013 at 8:42 pm #

    the abyss!

  43. Key_Shnigami October 17, 2013 at 3:02 am #

    I really would like either The Fell or Cursed please!

  44. Key_Shnigami October 17, 2013 at 3:03 am #

    I really would like either The Fell or Cursed please! I love them both!

  45. Jess October 17, 2013 at 4:44 am #

    More Sanctuary, please!

  46. Jess October 17, 2013 at 4:46 am #

    But I have to say Cursed is my favorite of the in progress stories.

  47. Valentine October 17, 2013 at 6:01 pm #

    The Fell! The Fell!

  48. Geebz October 17, 2013 at 9:42 pm #

    I like the idea of a party too. Although can you imagine a party at Alric’s house (I know we’re currently at Christmas, but this could be a special short) Scott trying to scare Jordan with ghost stories and really not succeeding! I’d love it! Anyway an extra of Sanctuary or The Fell would be equally welcome!

  49. ulysses October 18, 2013 at 9:07 pm #

    The Fell or The Pact! 😀

  50. Elysia K. Vorse (Ellie) October 18, 2013 at 10:38 pm #

    I would like a chapter of The Fell with Eathen and Elric, please? Pretty please?..
    ..Will it help if I mention that Halloween is my birthday?.. 🙂
    That’d be a very happy 24th birthday for me! 🙂

  51. Kuroi Tenshi October 20, 2013 at 1:40 pm #

    Either The Fell or Sanctuary would be great!

  52. Muffinspider October 20, 2013 at 2:18 pm #

    A side story for Leonais and Nico would be awesome!
    Or the Fell 🙂

  53. bpony October 25, 2013 at 11:00 am #

    My vote is for Cursed then Sanctuary, then Fell

  54. phoenixrayne3 October 25, 2013 at 4:22 pm #

    The Fell or Sanctuary

    maybe The Abyss…

    any would be great! 🙂

  55. TyRonda Ireland October 25, 2013 at 6:16 pm #


  56. Kiku28 October 25, 2013 at 7:30 pm #

    I would love to see another chapter of the fell! I can’t wait to see how Alric reacts! If I can’t have the fell, then I’ll vote for sanctuary. Is there going to be a sequel or continuing of price of passage? I absolutely adore it and would love to see more of it. 😉

  57. Victoria Leavitt October 26, 2013 at 1:21 am #


  58. fanfic_fanatics October 26, 2013 at 2:11 am #

    I would like to request “The Fell”

  59. luckchild October 27, 2013 at 1:51 am #

    The Fell please.

  60. RavenHeart55 October 27, 2013 at 6:12 pm #

    When I first saw this I was like; Cursed, Cursed, Cursed! But then I got reading other people’s comments and the idea of a Halloween themed party in Sanctuary is really good! That being said I can see The Fell being quite atmospheric. Then there are the ideas for short stories (e.g. Birthrite and Leonais/Nico). NNNNOOOO so hard to choose. Basically I will be very happy with any of these! 🙂

  61. devin hillenbrand October 28, 2013 at 5:26 pm #

    sanctuary! sanctuary! sanctuary!
