    Hey. if you’re having a hard time sequeling, what you need to do is when you copy and paste the sequel or prequel code onto the url of your sequel, you need to hit enter and let the brower refresh. That way the url with the sequel or prequel code will go through.

    then you may proceed to add your story.

    Oh, this explains all the seemingly random sequels and prequels to my little ficly from way back. It was literally a test, just the title and some gibberish to meet the character count. After it worked I scrambled to go back and edit it into something other just just a waste of space.
