Pro tip: if you see two authors working together on an interactive branch, don’t add a chapter to it that just complains that it’s too long. It’s extremely rude.
It seems not everyone is happy with my decision to remove a large number of rule violating chapters from Permission to Swap. I spent a lot of time going back and reading literally every chapter in the story, and for each one I deleted I spent a lot of time debating the choice and the reasoning for it, And I’ve been accused of “removing half of the content For no reason.“ Maybe it’s just one person, but it’s hard not to feel disheartened and depressed about it. I am deeply sorry if anyone is upset with the choices I’ve made with my story.
Don't feel disheartened, please. It's your story, therefore your rules and people need to respect that. You've put a massive amount of work into it and you should be proud, not depressed. Keep your head up my friend.
It is your story, with rules and guidelines on the cover page. It is not a free for all sandbox. It is the writer's responsibility to follow those rules and if they don't, they should be prepared for the consequences.
No worries it's your story so you decide what you want in it. Don't let those people get to you.

It took far longer than expected or planned, but Permission to Swap is publicly available once more. After about 9 years since I first posted it here, it was in need of a facelift. I'd left it alone for too long and it had become mired in poorly written chapters and ones that just outright broke continuity. I fixed issues where I could, but some chapters unfortunately had to be deleted. In positive news, I've added a bunch of new characters, incorporating some that others had introduced in their own chapters in some cases, touched up all the character bios, and, most exciting of all, I've added new branches where different characters can have the power. I look forward to some new additions to help replace what was lost with new and even better chapters. Thankfully, I should never had to do something like this again. Thanks for the patience.
Job well done. Congratulations.
Yay! Looking forward to reading the new stories and adding new chapters to this awesome interactive!
My Permission to Swap story will be temporarily unavailable while I give it some much needed maintenance. I will let you all know when it's set to public again.
Good luck with that!
Great to see you're paying such attention to your stories... especially this awesome one! Can't wait to see the renovations!
Can't wait to see the finished product!
Happy Anniversary my friend *Delight*
