Hey there, folks! I know, I know, it’s been a good while (two and a half months, give or take), but I’m here to let you all know that we’re getting back on track with the fanfiction proceedings on ZNN. Reports of the pre-reading team’s demise have been greatly exaggerated, yadda yadda yadda, you know the rest.
But in all seriousness, we sincerely apologize for the long delay. To get a glimpse behind the curtain so to speak, we had some big changes within the pre-reading team’s structure that resulted in us having to bring in some fresh new faces to fill in the gaps. Gazing into the abyss that is Zootopia fanfiction is no easy task, but after a few weeks of getting everyone oriented with their new roles, I can safely say that we’re back and ready to start sharing awesome stories with you all again! We really do appreciate your patience.
Last week we got things going again with a brand new featured story, and in this post we’re going to kick things off by beginning the long process of catching up with all the story updates we haven’t gotten a chance to cover yet. Our goal with these next few story update posts is to cover two weeks’ worth of updates each for all the notifications we received in December, January and February. If all goes well, we should be all caught up somewhere in the first week of March, so just bear with us as we get things sorted out with updates again. The timeframes that we’ll cover in each post will be in the title of that specific post.
In other news, I’m happy to announce in this particular batch of updates that HawkTooth’s story “Closed Doors” has reached its completion! It’s been a mainstay in our updates ever since it was featured back in 2017, and from the looks of things, HawkTooth has more in store for the next book of the series. If you haven’t given the story a look yet, now’s the perfect time to do so!
Ahhhh, it feels good to be back in the saddle again. Thanks so much for tuning in, and I hope you all enjoy these updates as well as the ones we’ll be sharing in the near future. Take care!

And the fanfic readers rejoice!
Yes indeed, Closed Doors does have a sequel in the works (posts will be on AO3 and DA), though it might be a bit before that starts getting put up; I’ve got to finish the cover sketch first, and it’s a doozy!
I think Ouroboros also got finished up just in the last week too; hats off to the pacing on that one, chapter a week would be exhausting!
And we’ll look forward to getting the submission to that sequel once it’s primed and ready to go!
We also know about Ouroboros getting finished up, but we’re intending on having that be the featured fic in the story update post that has its final chapter in that specific time frame. It was completed on the sixteenth of this month, so that’ll be the post where we’ll put it in the limelight!
