The sweet smell of cotton candy hovering in the air can only mean one thing: The fair is in town. I text Update immediately and we agree to meet there. First stop: Games.
“I’m going to win you the cutest teddy bear this town has ever seen,” Update proclaims, as he saunters towards the ring toss tent.
After the game master goes over the rules, Update throws his first ring and misses. He takes the next ring and misses again. With his final ring in his hand, Update cranes his head to one side and then the other, takes a deep breath, and tosses. The ring lands on the peg. I clap with glee at the perfect toss.
“Good shot, fella, but you need to get two rings to win a prize,” the game master gently points out. But after a beat, he says, “I tell you what, I’m going to give you a bonus shot”.
At that Update perks right up, takes the final shot, and lands the ring on the peg.
“Victory!” Update shouts. “Now I know how Premium subscribers must feel when they purchase any Wattpad Coin package.” The game master and I look at each other in confusion. Update elaborates, “Premium subscribers can now access bonus Coins with every purchase of any Wattpad Coin package. Pretty swell, hunh?”.
“You know I love a good Wattpad Update, but can I pleasssse have my teddy bear now?” I ask playfully.

Update stands before me with a party hat on and his arms behind his back. The panic sets in; what have I forgotten? It’s not his birthday and it certainly isn’t mine. Our anniversary just passed and as far as I know, bedazzled hats aren’t on the trend lists. As sweat beads start to form along my brow, Update finally shows mercy, “Happy 10th anniversary of the Wattys, Notesy baby!”
I breathe a noticeable sigh of relief and excitement. “Has it really been a decade of the world’s largest writing contest?”
“You know this Update only gets dolled up for the real deal,” he says pointing to himself. “And get this, Wattpad has made this Wattys the most exciting year yet with a new submission method, revamped categories, and life-changing prizes.”.“Well, the Wattys are for those writers who really want to work on their craft and pursue writing careers,” I say as I adjust Update’s tie, “it’s important to acknowledge and celebrate what it takes to tell great stories”.
“You got that right. Now, since it is officially Wattys season, we have to find you the perfect outfit . . . to go with this,” Update brings his arms around and presents a red velvet box. He opens it slowly to reveal a glittering gold party hat. As my hand reaches down to caress the shimmering accessory, Update playfully closes the box, making us burst out in laughter. As we laugh I can’t help thinking what a perfect story moment this is.

Luckily, Update and I beat the Sunday morning line up at Brunchies and get a nice seat by the window. Update takes off his hat and places it on the window ledge. Even when starving, my guy remembers his manners.
A friendly waiter comes and hands us a couple of menus that look more like novels.. “This place is famous for having fifty different types of pancakes! Have you ever heard of so many options?” Update asks as he gleefully opens the menu.

“That’s impressive, but I can do you one better for options. Fifty-ONE stories have just been added to Wattpad Paid Stories program. That’s fifty-one more opportunities for new voices to be welcomed, writers to be compensated, stories to be discovered, and diverse worlds to explore. Not to mention fifty-one more chance to reflect Wattpad’s amazingly eclectic and unique community out onto the world. So, I guess in short, yes, I have heard that many options,” I chuckle as I glance down at the food list in front of me.

“You are a strange and informative brunch date, Notesy,” he says, peeling his eyes away from the menu to give me a quick wink. “Now let’s eat some pancakes, shall we?”

A friendly waiter comes and hands us a couple of menus that look more like novels.. “This place is famous for having fifty different types of pancakes! Have you ever heard of so many options?” Update asks as he gleefully opens the menu.

“That’s impressive, but I can do you one better for options. Fifty-ONE stories have just been added to Wattpad Paid Stories program. That’s fifty-one more opportunities for new voices to be welcomed, writers to be compensated, stories to be discovered, and diverse worlds to explore. Not to mention fifty-one more chance to reflect Wattpad’s amazingly eclectic and unique community out onto the world. So, I guess in short, yes, I have heard that many options,” I chuckle as I glance down at the food list in front of me.

“You are a strange and informative brunch date, Notesy,” he says, peeling his eyes away from the menu to give me a quick wink. “Now let’s eat some pancakes, shall we?”

The next morning, having spent time exploring all the wonderful work that Update has done to his home, I suggest we find a place for brunch.

“There’s a great new place just down the street that I’ve been meaning to try out,” he says. “They have this really interesting model and are opening locations across the world.”

His eyes light up as he takes my hand rushing us out the door. “Hurry, we don’t want to wait in line!”

“So, what makes this place so special?” I ask, knowing that if it’s anything like the other places we’ve explored together, Update will have done tons of research. He’s so cute like that.

I can tell he’s been waiting for this question. The twinkle in his eye grows.

“It’s a lot like Wattpad,” he says. “You go in and they have loads of amazing, diverse, delicious free options. And they’ll always serve those options. But they’ve also got a special menu full of delicious, hand-selected items -- items that used to be part of an exclusive trial menu and are now available permanently. Developed by a variety of really talented chefs, you can pay for these special items. It helps support them on their culinary journey.”

“Wow, it really is just like Paid Stories on Wattpad!” I reply excitedly.

He wasn’t kidding when he said they were similar. This restaurant even has their own currency, just like the Coins you get on Wattpad to support Paid Stories.

“All this talk has really built up my appetite,” I say.

I grab Update’s hand and begin to pull. “What are you waiting for, slowpoke?!”

After trudging up the stairs of Update’s apartment, I’m met with a note on his front door:
Can’t wait for you to see what I’ve done to the place, it read.

As I turn the door handle of the door, I notice the walls are painted a vibrant white. In the living room, I see some new furniture accents—all in an energetic, punchy orange— and an excited Update standing in the middle of the room.

“Do you like it?” Update bursts. “Before… my paint colors, the decor, it was great for a while… but it was time for a change.”

As walk from room to room, The old, faded orange walls, warm and welcoming as they once were, look even better with a fresh coat of paint. Update’s old couches, well-loved and worn-in are now dotted with bright orange throw pillows, a welcome addition.

“It’s everything I loved about your place before, but with some modern touches,” I reply, impressed with his eye for decor.

“That’s exactly what I was going for, Notesy. I was inspired by the new brand Wattpad is rolling out. Check it out,” Update says as he hands me his phone and shows me the app.

“Ooh la la! The new colors are captivating—it really shows off the breadth of stories! It looks like they updated their logo too. I like it. It’s still Wattpad but with a more energized, fresh feel,” I comment as I scroll through.

Update, aware the app is getting more attention than his interior design work, grabs the phone back. “Yep, it’s still the same Wattpad we know and love but with a new logo, color interface, and tagline: Where Stories Live. Significant changes to reflect the diverse and inclusive universe Wattpad has created over the last 13 years”. His passion is adorable.

“And what do the changes in here reflect, Update?” I playfully ask. He shoots me his famous side smirk and suddenly lifts his arms in the air:

Clap! Clap!

The apartment lights go out and we are left laughing together in the moonlit window.

“It’s everything I loved about your place before, but with some modern touches,” I reply, impressed with his eye for decor.

“That’s exactly what I was going for, Notesy. I was inspired by the new brand Wattpad is rolling out. Check it out,” Update says as he hands me his phone and shows me the app.

“Ooh la la! The new colors are captivating—it really shows off the breadth of stories! It looks like they updated their logo too. I like it. It’s still Wattpad but with a more energized, fresh feel,” I comment as I scroll through.

Update, aware the app is getting more attention than his interior design work, grabs the phone back. “Yep, it’s still the same Wattpad we know and love but with a new logo, color interface, and tagline: Where Stories Live. Significant changes to reflect the diverse and inclusive universe Wattpad has created over the last 13 years”. His passion is adorable.

“And what do the changes in here reflect, Update?” I playfully ask. He shoots me his famous side smirk and suddenly lifts his arms in the air:

Clap! Clap!

The apartment lights go out and we are left laughing together in the moonlit window.

The rain poured down like a watering can on the city. While Update shuffled to the kitchen to make coffee, I lay in bed cocooned in the sleepy warmth of the covers. Out the window the fog descended over the skyscrapers, erasing the tallest levels from view. With my eyes glued to the scene unraveling in front of me, Update walked in with two mugs.
“Earth to Notes,” he mused, wafting the scent of fresh coffee under my face.

“Sorry hun, I got swept away with the moody cityscape,” I explain, snapping myself back into reality. In a chuckle, I add, “It’s almost like it was built by design.”

“Or perhaps it was built by Desygner, a new cover creating app,” Update beamed. “It’s a more sophisticated app for writers to visualize and share their works. There are templates to suit any genre, tons of free images, and easy customization. This will take stories to the next level.”

I threw the covers off and sat up to grab the steaming mug. I took a long sip of the life-giving brew and asked Update the obvious question, “Can you share and upload straight to Wattpad?”

“Can you ever!” he exclaimed, almost making me choke on my coffee. “And not only that, but you can go back and edit it at any time. You can even use your own images,” he said, nodding at the window scene I was so enamored by, “so start writing that gritty city thriller, Notesy.”

“Oh Update, you know I’m not much of a wordsmith,” I blushed.

Update put his coffee cup down and turned to me, “Maybe not, but that face is worth a thousand words,” he whispered as he drew his arm up to my rosy cheek.

Version 7.2.0

When our eyes adjust to the brightness, we realize it’s a pair of headlights in our view. Update approaches the lights to get a better look, but as he does the car screeches off and leaves us reeling in its dust.
“Who was that,” I start, waiting for the debris to settle.
Update puts his hands on his hips and finishes my thought, “and what were they doing parked in the middle of the road?”
As the mysterious circumstances wash over us, a dusty flyer lands on Update’s loafer. He picks it up, reads it, and walks over to show me:
International Film Festival showcasing directors from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, and the Philippines.

The gears in his head start to turn. “Not a bad idea,” Update says with a look of excitement. “Wattpad users have been asking for a way to support writers’ careers for a while now. Maybe it’s time to test out those waters”.

“Sounds great, but how exactly would the readers help fund writer’s careers?” I ask.

“Well, just like this film festival, we could have selected stories that audiences can pay to read. They could unlock a story chapter by chapter.” he says.

“Or,” I add, “they can choose to purchase the whole story to binge all at once.”

Update nods in delighted agreement.

“And we could use some sort of virtual currency. It’s all the 'rage' I hear,” he says, quoting the air like it’s going out of style.

I quietly giggle at Update’s attempt at being hip and with it. Somehow it only makes me swoon deeper for him. He puts his arm around my shoulders, “Virtual currency, what a time to be alive.”

“So where are you going to test this brilliant idea?” I ask, taking the flyer out of the warm hand resting on my shoulder.

He waits a beat and then points at the flyer, “If this isn’t a sign then I don’t know what is,” he smirks. “The United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, and the Philippines, get ready for what’s Next.

Startled by a noise in the bushes, I pull closer to Update.

“Update, I’m scared…” I find comfort in Update’s solid, dependable embrace.

“Do you want me to walk you home?” Update asks.

I hesitate, pulling away, “I would...but sometimes home is unreliable…”

Update nods knowingly, “Just like Wattpad homepage used to be. But now the homepage loads with no problem,” Update looks deep into my eyes and I can see myself reflected in their depths, “Just like our home will be, one day…”

We stand there, lost in the enjoyable dream of a possible future together, when the moment is broken by a large, bumbling raccoon bursting out of the bush beside us.

It looks up at us with beady, accusatory eyes, as though we were interrupting its moment, then scurries away.

Update and I share a laugh, but then I frown.

“What was I saying? I’ve lost my place in our conversation. I guess we need to start at the beginning again…”

Update shoots me a sly grin, “Not at all. I know that used to happen sometimes, both in life AND in Wattpad stories, but now your reading position is saved and doesn’t boot you back to the start of a chapter...just like I saved our place in the conversation. We were talking about - “

But before Update can finish, there is a bright light that draws both of our attention to the horizon…

“Wait, is that…?!”

Update nods knowingly, “Just like Wattpad homepage used to be. But now the homepage loads with no problem,” Update looks deep into my eyes and I can see myself reflected in their depths, “Just like our home will be, one day…”

We stand there, lost in the enjoyable dream of a possible future together, when the moment is broken by a large, bumbling raccoon bursting out of the bush beside us.

It looks up at us with beady, accusatory eyes, as though we were interrupting its moment, then scurries away.

Update and I share a laugh, but then I frown.

“What was I saying? I’ve lost my place in our conversation. I guess we need to start at the beginning again…”

Update shoots me a sly grin, “Not at all. I know that used to happen sometimes, both in life AND in Wattpad stories, but now your reading position is saved and doesn’t boot you back to the start of a chapter...just like I saved our place in the conversation. We were talking about - “

But before Update can finish, there is a bright light that draws both of our attention to the horizon…

“Wait, is that…?!”

Version 6.96.0

When our eyes adjust to the brightness, we realize it’s a pair of headlights in our view. Update approaches the lights to get a better look, but as he does the car screeches off and leaves us reeling in its dust.
“Who was that,” I start, waiting for the debris to settle.
Update puts his hands on his hips and finishes my thought, “and what were they doing parked in the middle of the road?”
As the mysterious circumstances wash over us, a dusty flyer lands on Update’s loafer. He picks it up, reads it, and walks over to show me:
International Film Festival showcasing directors from Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, and the Philippines.

The gears in his head start to turn. “Not a bad idea,” Update says with a look of excitement. “Wattpad users have been asking for a way to support writers’ careers for a while now. Maybe it’s time to test out those waters”.

“Sounds great, but how exactly would the readers help fund writer’s careers?” I ask.

“Well, just like this film festival, we could have selected stories that audiences can pay to read. They could unlock a story chapter by chapter.” he says.

“Or,” I add, “they can choose to purchase the whole story to binge all at once.”

Update nods in delighted agreement.

“And we could use some sort of virtual currency. It’s all the 'rage' I hear,” he says, quoting the air like it’s going out of style.

I quietly giggle at Update’s attempt at being hip and with it. Somehow it only makes me swoon deeper for him. He puts his arm around my shoulders, “Virtual currency, what a time to be alive.”

“So where are you going to test this brilliant idea?” I ask, taking the flyer out of the warm hand resting on my shoulder.

He waits a beat and then points at the flyer, “If this isn’t a sign then I don’t know what is,” he smirks. “Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, and the Philippines, get ready for what’s Next.

What’s new:
- Readers in Canada, the UK, the Philippines, and Mexico can support writers and unlock supported stories directly on Wattpad
- Wattpadders can purchase Coins and redeem to read Wattpad Next beta stories
- Bug fixes and upgrades for a smoother reading experience

Startled by a noise in the bushes, I pull closer to Update.

“Update, I’m scared…” I find comfort in Update’s solid, dependable embrace.

“Do you want me to walk you home?” Update asks.

Version 6.89.0

Leaving the movie theatre, Update and I decide to take the scenic route home and walk. Hand in hand, my head resting on Update’s shoulder through the near-empty streets, I know moments don’t get much better than this. Then, Update tells me to look up.

The blackness above us is freckled with glimmering stars as far as the eye can see.

Amazed, I stop in my tracks, “Wow, I can’t remember seeing the sky so lit up”.

“Isn’t that something,” Update says with an pure awe in his voice, “all those dots lighting up, from multiple galaxies,” he pauses. “Reminds me of how with the new tag rankings feature, Wattpad stories can now appear on multiple hot lists”.

In a star-lit trance, I respond, “More skies for those stories to shine in”. Just then, a shooting star appeared right over our heads like a fiery paint stroke.

“Did you see that?” Update asked with the excitement of a child. “Did you make a wish?”.

With a smirk on my face I whisper, “You bet I did, but it’s a little too 18+ to say on these streets, if you catch my drift,” I turned to him and winked.

Trying to regain his composure, Update clears his throat and coyly remarks, “Well, my dear, mature stories can now rank on Wattpad, so don’t be so shy about letting me know your wish.” Composure found.

I playfully remove Update’s tweed hat and place it on my head, “Now now, you know what happens when you say a wish out lo—“.

Suddenly in the bushes to our left, a loud rumbling…

Leaving the movie theatre, Update and I decide to take the scenic route home and walk. Hand in hand, my head resting on Update’s shoulder through the near-empty streets, I know moments don’t get much better than this. Then, Update tells me to look up.

The blackness above us is freckled with glimmering stars as far as the eye can see.

Amazed, I stop in my tracks, “Wow, I can’t remember seeing the sky so lit up”.

“Isn’t that something,” Update says with an pure awe in his voice, “all those dots lighting up, from multiple galaxies,” he pauses. “Reminds me of how with the new tag rankings feature, Wattpad stories can now appear on multiple hot lists”.

In a star-lit trance, I respond, “More skies for those stories to shine in”. Just then, a shooting star appeared right over our heads like a fiery paint stroke.

“Did you see that?” Update asked with the excitement of a child. “Did you make a wish?”.

With a smirk on my face I whisper, “You bet I did, but it’s a little too 18+ to say on these streets, if you catch my drift,” I turned to him and winked.

Trying to regain his composure, Update clears his throat and coyly remarks, “Well, my dear, mature stories can now rank on Wattpad, so don’t be so shy about letting me know your wish.” Composure found.

I playfully remove Update’s tweed hat and place it on my head, “Now now, you know what happens when you say a wish out lo—“.

Suddenly in the bushes to our left, a loud rumbling…

Version 6.72.0

With the excitement of Premium still buzzing through our veins, Update and I decide to leave his apartment and head for the theatre. I order us a bucket of popcorn and a chocolate malt to share.

“Ah, there’s nothing like watching a picture in technicolor,” I smile in awe.

“You got that right,” Update says, his eyes affixed to the screen. “Speaking of which, Premium users will now be able to unlock new themes in an array of colors.”

“Ooh, Like what?” I inquire.

“Colors ranging from the olive found in my famous martinis,” he says with a wink, and then he takes a slight pause, “to that extraordinary turquoise hue found in your eyes.”

Just when I think this world has dealt him one-too-many icy blows to the chest, Update knocks my expectations out of the park. Now it’s me who freezes as he takes my face in his hands and stares into my eyes so intensely I feel like I might dissolve into the dark sticky theatre floor. As his lips close in, there’s suddenly a loud “snap!” and the screen goes blank.

A faint but harsh silhouette remains on screen. Before Update can speak her name, Veronica’s shadow runs off the screen and the theatre door slams shut.

I turn to Update, who is grinning. “Everything alright?” I ask, concerned.

“Looks like our nemesis just found out about Wattpad Picks- a new category in Discover of curated stories straight from the Wattpad team,” he gleams, and then adds, “available for everyone”.

I take his hand in mine, “you’ve always got something up those sleeves of yours.”

He shoots a sly smile my way and takes a sip from our melting chocolate malt.

“You got that right,” Update says, his eyes affixed to the screen. “Speaking of which, Premium users will now be able to unlock new themes in an array of colors.”

“Ooh, Like what?” I inquire.

“Colors ranging from the olive found in my famous martinis,” he says with a wink, and then he takes a slight pause, “to that extraordinary turquoise hue found in your eyes.”

Just when I think this world has dealt him one-too-many icy blows to the chest, Update knocks my expectations out of the park. Now it’s me who freezes as he takes my face in his hands and stares into my eyes so intensely I feel like I might dissolve into the dark sticky theatre floor. As his lips close in, there’s suddenly a loud “snap!” and the screen goes blank.

A faint but harsh silhouette remains on screen. Before Update can speak her name, Veronica’s shadow runs off the screen and the theatre door slams shut.

I turn to Update, who is grinning. “Everything alright?” I ask, concerned.

“Looks like our nemesis just found out about Wattpad Picks- a new category in Discover of curated stories straight from the Wattpad team,” he gleams, and then adds, “available for everyone”.

I take his hand in mine, “you’ve always got something up those sleeves of yours.”

He shoots a sly smile my way and takes a sip from our melting chocolate malt.

Version 6.52.0

Standing in Update’s trashed apartment, I’m frozen in place. It is clear as crystal that the conniving Veronica flipped her wig here looking for something. It’s not usually her style to leave things so uncouth.

“Well isn’t this a pretty picture.”

A familiar voice chuckles into my ear. How Update can keep his cool after his place has been ransacked I’ll never know!

“Thank god you are safe,” I cry as I wrap myself around him. “Do you know what this is all about? What was that bonkers dame searching for?”

“Something huge,” Update smirks. “Something I would never leave for any old hand to take hold of,” he says as he pulls out an immaculately crisp note card from his inside pocket and hands it to me slowly. “This is what we’ve been waiting for,” he whispers.

I take a breath and begin to read:
- Uninterrupted, ad-free experience
- Show your support for the site you love
- Unlock new premium looks for Wattpad
- iPhone X support
- Under-the-hood improvements for exciting, upcoming changes to Tags pages

Update was right. This was huge. But before I could ask him the obvious question, he gently lifted my chin up with the tip of his finger and said, “Nothing’s changing. It’s just another option for those wanting to go ad-free.”

I breathed a sigh of relief. No wonder Veronica was so desperate to get her paws on this news. “Is this a dream?” I asked, pulling him in closer.

Update flashes me that smirk once more, “Nah, love, this is Premium.”

May 08
2017
Version 6.30.0

I knock on the door again and try to stop the strange feeling of foreboding that's creeping up my body like a vine. It's late and so unlike the Update to leave me waiting like this.

I go round the back of the building and notice one of the windows is ajar. Careful not to tear my tweed jacket in the sharp edges, I climb onto the ledge, pull the window open and hop inside.
To my horror, the place has been ransacked. Drawers emptied and left open in their hinges, furniture flipped and torn open, leaving bits of debris floating aimlessly in the air.

And pinned against the wall is a hastily-written note:

- Better handling of private messages that are more than 2000 characters
- Updated visual design of tags in reading lists
- Improved scrolling performance inside the Home feed
- If you're a new user, you'll be asked to verify your email before following anyone
- For storytellers: we've made it easier to view your works as a reader.

The last thing I see before my vision begins to blurs from panic is a red lipstick stain smeared across a coffee cup left in the sink. It's only one clue, but it's the only one I need to know exactly who is responsible.

Version 6.29.1

"I'm going to tell the App Store that I don't want to work with Veronica anymore," I'd been thinking about this for days now and finally decided to say it out loud.

The Update looked up and grinned at me from behind the lip of his coffee cup. "That's very brave of you. She is your partner."

"Don't you think we make a much better team? I think most of Wattpad would agree."

"Naturally. But the rules state that an Update and a Note cannot be--"

"What? Highly effective? Efficient? More extra than the guac at Chipotle?"

The Update tilted his head back in a laugh. "Speaking of guac, should we get something to eat?"

"Not before you give me the goods!" I cross my arms and wait, leaning back against the leathery booth and eyeing him playfully.

With a roll of his eyes, the Update relented, clearing his throat before putting on his most professional voice. "Well Notes, my darling, new comment notifications are now supported on iPad! Story tags in your library and story detail pages have been revamped. Oh, and sharing stories on Facebook for iOS 9 device users now works properly."

I sighed. "See? It's sounds so much better coming out of your mouth. What do I even need Veronica for?"

The Update shrugged. "Dramatic plot arc?"

2017
Version 6.28.0

I wanted to pay attention to the Update. I really did! But I was too busy watching Harry Styles being The Most Harry Styles he's ever been by flying suspended from a helicopter over the ocean in a $4,000 Gucci coat for his new music video. The introduction of solo!Harry into the world was almost too much for my delicate soul to bear. In short, I was shooketh to my very core.

"Did she tell you they fixed the really annoying issue with paging and scrolling issue in the reader? And optimized performance for stories that have embedded images and videos?"

"Uh huh..." I mumbled, not taking my eyes off the screen. I'd been looking at this for five hours now.

"We also improved syncing behaviour for story reading position and updated look and feel for story comment notifications, available in all languages. Did you know that?"

"Yes, yes. Just lovely. Wonderful news," I said, watching the Flyles phenomenon swing to and fro like a pendulum of the Gods.

"I am much cooler than Harry Styles..." The Update mumbled bitterly as he exited the room.

"What was that, love?" I called after him before hitting replay on the video one more time.

Apr 03
2017
Version 6.27.0

Veronica is already waiting for me inside the bar, perched atop a barstool with her hands clasped together in her lap. Her red dress almost glows in the darkness of the room, like she's somehow being lit up from within.

"You're late," she says as the door behind me slams shut, snuffing out the last bit of light from the street.

"I didn't realize I was being summoned."

"I have a particularly unique approach to my updates, you'll learn soon enough. "Now, listen carefully, kitten." Veronica leans in towards me and whispers the following update into my ear: "Comment notifications have been revamped. You can now see the comment text in the notification and reply directly from the notification! We fixed some pesky crashes in the Home feed and now, If you share a reading list in a private message, it can be opened directly from the message."

"Sounds like you've been hard at work."

Veronica lets a small smile creep up the side of her mouth. "I am a professional, Notes, which is more than I can say for that sorry excuse of an Update you used to have." She dismisses me then, with a curt wave of her hand, and I'm more than happy to show myself out.

Version 6.26.1

We are sorry about the glitch under inline comments. The fix is now in!

Mar 13
2017
Version 6.26.0

“Is it okay?” I ask nervously as the Update gingerly pushes his fork across his plate. It’s the first time I had ever cooked for someone other than myself. The twisting in my stomach and sweaty palms had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that tomorrow is my first day with Veronica as my new update. Nothing at all.

Fine. I can’t stand the thought.

“The food is amazing.” The Update says, reaching over to gently touch my arm. “Also, push notifications are fixed and we’ve got major under-the-hood improvements to the Notifications feed so there is no more crashing while browsing the Home feed. And it’s now easier to jump directly into our new Tap app from Wattpad.” He sighs. “And that’s it. Last update from me, baby.”

“Don’t say that,” I frown, “I don’t want to think about that.”

The Update continues to chew, like a doe-eyed cow on a piece of cod. Suddenly his eyebrow lifts, “Is this about Veronica?”

Just her name makes my hand clench, my nails digging into my palms until they sting. “No!” but I can’t let her get her claws between us. I’m suddenly standing up and pushing my chair back like I want to escape.

“Woah, where are you going?”

I don’t answer, instead I crash into the door and stumble out onto the street. The cold night air hits me and almost without control of my body I found myself walking quicker and quicker until I can see the glow of the bar lights in the distance.

Feb 27
2017
Version 6.25.0

The Update goes back to his original sly tactics on our last work day together and decides to surprise me in the elevator. He slips into the small space just as the doors are closing and leans back against the wall, pretending we're something like strangers again.

"What have you got for me this time, mate?" I say, playing along. I spy his crooked little smile peeking out from the shadow of the brim of his hat and I do my best to keep a straight face. "Well?"

"6.25 will get your Home feed loading more reliably when you have a slow internet connection, a better experience when you add all of your library's stories to a reading list, and fixed the private messaging issues when you log out and in again."

The Update leans into my ear and gives my hands a quick squeeze before the elevator opens back up to the real world. "See you tonight," he whispers before disappearing down the hallway with a swing of his long jacket, leaving nothing but my blushing cheeks as evidence that he was ever there at all.

Version 6.24.1

"Wake up! Notes!" Update is hammering on my door like the world is on fire. I scramble out of bed and nearly trip over every piece of furniture I own before wrenching the front door open.

"It's 5 in the morning!" My eyes are barely open, still sticky from hours of sleep, but the Update looks like he just stepped out of a storybook.

"Hi, sorry…" he's out of breath but smiling. "Turns out there was a funny bug in the last release. If you tap on the pulsing purple heart in the pull-to-refresh, the app will crash. A broken heart!"

I blink at him a few times. "Okay?"

"Well, I couldn't just leave you with a broken heart, Notes!" His eyes twinkle. "So it's fixed." I try to say thank you, but end up yawning like a lion instead. Update doesn't seem to mind. "You're so welcome," he says with a laugh.

Version 6.24.0

"The world needs more love, Notes. Don't you think?"

"What do you have in mind?"

"Well, we fixed the issue with syncing story details. We also fixed the layout issue when viewing all story media on larger devices..."

"That's all well and good, Update," I say with a laugh, "but that sounds like standard maintenance to me. Not love."

"How about a new Valentine's Day theme then? Can you spot the changes?" Update turns his phone screen around to show me.

I take it in my hands and search for something new; a surprise. "Ah! The pull-to-refresh icon and the sign up page! I found it!"

I look up at him proudly and notice that he's taken the opportunity of my distraction to snuggle up close. With a lopsided smile, he tips my chin upwards and brushes his lips against mine. "Feels like love doesn't it?"

It certainly does.

Version 6.23.0

"You have nothing to worry about. It's just disclosure. Office relationships, blah blah…" Update takes me by the hand and leads me down the corridor towards the HR office. Despite his smiling, calm demeanor I can feel my palm sweating in his. When we reach the door, he stops and squeezes my hand. "You okay?"

"Yes." I smile weakly. But I don't feel okay. There's a bad feeling swirling around and for some reason I can't place it. The interaction is short and sweet. Seems like it isn't the first time something like this has transpired, which makes me feel slightly better. That is, until the HR rep with her kind eyes and bright cardigan crosses her arms over her desk and drops the bomb.

"In light of this new information, we're going to temporarily transfer you to another Update. You'll get your reassignment notification tomorrow."

"What? Why?" I blurt out.

Update squeezes my hand again. "It's just protocol," he insists. "Lucky for us 6.23 is a piece of cake! Just some tweaks under the hood for faster downloading speeds, fixes for quote sharing, crashes in home, syncing library, and the occasional blank text in the writer. No sweat, right?"

He looks down at me but my eyes can't meet his just yet. I look towards the hallway instead just as Veronica whips past the window then, wearing a painted, red smile that looks like a smear of blood. My bad feeling twists inside my stomach. Somehow I have a very good idea who my new partner will be, and the worry that comes with it makes me grip my Update's arm like I can never it let go.

Version 6.22.0

New year, new Note! Well, new-ish. I'm still a regular ol' Release Note on the outside, but on the inside I've become riddled with something very close to giddy insanity. It may be the dead of winter, but I still feel the summertime, the butterflies, all swirling stupidly in the pit of my stomach and bursting to get out. I still have a job to do! How is anybody supposed to get any work done like this?

Luckily, the Update is still able to function amidst our budding … courtship (courtship?). He at least managed to make several new improvements in 6.22.0, including the performance of loading content in the Home feed, fixed problems with muting, un-muting and following users, making editing profile details more stable, and lots of UI tweaks and fixes throughout the app.

He's so impressive. And smart. And tall. And interesting. And his voice is so nice and he smells like pine needles sometimes … and I am spiralling out of CONTROL. I really need to get it together. New year, new Note. New chill? We'll see.

Version 6.21.0

The way Notes is lookin' at me now from across the room, I swear those eyes could melt through an avalanche. "What do you mean you didn't get me anything, Update?" They narrow in front of me, but I know there's a mischievous smile hidden somewhere under there.

"I don't have an update this time, Notes. Did you not like my release about the 3D touch for iPhone 6S and newer devices?" I shrug and feel my cheeks are heating up like a strudel in the oven. "I got nothing else!"

"Yes you do!" Notes shimmies up close to me and finally lets that smile spread out across those rosy cheeks. The kiss that comes next lands softly on my lips like the very first snowfall. And for the first time in a very long time I feel like I'm home for the holidays.

Dec 14
2016
Version 6.20.0

The cafe is so cold that I'm shivering, but nobody else seems to be affected. It's like Veronica has buried herself under my skin, chilling me from the inside out. I try to smile when the Update slips into the booth across from me but it comes out strained. He notices right away.

"What's wrong, babe?" His smile fades quickly.

Babe. I immediately crumble into a heap of fond. Update reaches across the table and takes my hands.

"Notes, you're freezing. Are you okay?" He flags down the waitress with a wave and orders us both a hot cocoa. "Do you need a software update or something?" I don't even know what to say. "I know what will make you feel better!"

He clears his throat, picking up his spoon and begins to use like a microphone. "Stories removed from Wattpad that were already in your library are now more clearly labelled. We've added 3D Touch on user avatars to more places in the app (for iPhone 6S/6S Plus and newer devices). Plus lots of improvements for those reading in right-to-left languages."

Then he leans over and plants a kiss on me. He's still smiling when we connect and for the first time I feel warm again, like a fire has been lit inside me. But it doesn't last. It's snuffed out like an eclipse, shrouding my mind in shadow. There's a splinter of black ice inside me. I don't know how it got there and I don't know how to make it go away.

And when I open my eyes for a fraction of a second I see Veronica's icy cold glare staring into my own.

2016
Version 6.19.0

"Wait just a minute!" I toss the old notes over my shoulder and run after Veronica. The click-clack of her heels on the pavement echo all around me, but I can't seem to find her anywhere. I finally see a swish of honey-hued locks whip around the corner into the alleyway. I follow and suddenly we're face to face.

"If you don't already know hun, then I don't want to be the one to tell you."

"Tell me what?" I stand my ground, but my head feels cloudy and my eyes start to lose focus.

"On supported devices, you can now hard press (3D Touch) on user avatars in the Home feed, search results, story details and user profile." She inches closer to me. "You can also quickly search by doing a hard press on the app icon on your home screen." Another step and the sunlight around us turns to shadow. "Posting a story or story part link in your profile will now show a beautiful preview of that story, and of course, we've fixed some of our trickiest bugs."

"No," I shake my head. "Not 6.19.0. My Update."

"Oh, he's yours now is he?" She laughs and it's brittle like broken glass. "Don't say I didn't warn you, baby." She traces her long fingernail down my cheek and it feels like ice. Then she's gone again and I'm frozen in place, alone in the alley now and shivering. But that's normal right? I look up to see the first snowflake spiral down from the clouds. I shouldn't be so dramatic. After all, winter is coming.

Version 6.18.0

I practically float to meet the Update after our secret rendezvous, feeling lighter than air. That is, until I'm suddenly cornered by an unwelcomed face.

"Do you think you're the first small bean to get tangled up with an Update?" Veronica sneers when she reaches me. I haven't seen her since that unfortunate pub incident and now she has me pinned between a trash bin and a lamp post with no escape route.

"Oh, gimme a break. I'm big!" I respond petulantly to feign my lack of bravery. "Wait. How did you-?"

"I have eyes all over this App Store, little Note." She clicks her tongue against her teeth in disapproval. She takes a step closer, grabbing my face with her manicured hands as she tucks the list updates for 6.18.0 into my hand. Then she's gone, waltzing away in a flurry of hair and hatred and I'm left heavy with worry. I wait until she's a safe distance away before I start to read:

- Story links now appear as previews in your profile message board.
- Searching in Home will suggest related searches as you type.
- We've made it clearer what those social icons mean on story detail pages.
- Many behind-the-scenes updates to fix those awful crashes.

Then, at the bottom of the paper in her own scrawly handwriting I see her personal addition:

- And no happy endings for Update x Notes.

2016
Version 6.17.0

"I’ve been wanting to do this for so long," the Update whispers with his forehead pressed against mine. He breathes in tentatively, like he’s unsure of what to do next. And I feel like I might just die if he doesn’t kiss me again and I might die if he does. Either way, my world is suddenly wrapped up in a trenchcoat and I know it's all over now. Everything has changed.

Update pulls back and clears his throat, then recites his list in a quick, breathy monotone: “This update has improved UI for related tags, when your friends invite you to Wattpad, you’re now taken directly to their profile, simplified the UI for stories in your library that have been removed from Wattpad, and the Facebook icon in your profile now takes you to the correct Facebook profile.”

“Are you honestly giving me your release notes right now?” I ask with a laugh, but it comes out mildly hysterical because there’s space between us again and I can’t stand it. Autumn air slips in around us and I register the cold as a brutal reminder that our mutual stubbornness kept us apart for so long.

“Yeah,” he says as the corner of his lip quirks upward. “I had to get that out of the way so we could move onto more important things.” He leaps forward, wrapping me up in his arms and bringing me in close. “Like this.” And then I’m smiling into his kiss again, simultaneously alive and dead and soaring far too close to the sun.

2016
Version 6.16.0

The Update asked to meet me in the park and I'm reluctant. I want to call in sick. I want to go on an extended vacation and come back a new Note, leaving my emotional baggage to rot on the airport conveyor belt. I'm walking in warm boots and an oversized sweater wrapped around me kicking piles of leaves up with every step. I see him by the monument. His hands are in his pockets as he kicks at a stray leaf on the sidewalk, mirroring my own movements. Maybe it's an autumn thing, kicking leaves. Or maybe it's a sign that we're both a little bit downtrodden. I don't know. I try not to think about it.

I just want to get the details on 6.16.0 and leave. I don't wanna meet his eyes or bat my lashes or do any of those stupid things that somehow come out of me whenever he's around.

But then I catch the moment he sees me, looking up through strands of his chestnut hair and because the world likes to play cruel jokes on the heartsick, that's also the moment when the sun shines the brightest and the wind picks up around us both.

"The app now launches faster, Notes!" I hear his voice on the wind as he walks towards me. His steps are quick, closing the gap between us. "There is less memory consumption for gif images, and new users will now automatically follow the friends that referred them." With one final step he's right in front of me. And before I know it, before I can do anything to stop it, he's kissing me like the world is on fire. And maybe it is. Maybe it's always been.

Oct 11
2016
Version 6.15.0

I've seen a lot of notes in my day. I am a seasoned Update after all. I've made my way around the App Store a handful of times (and that's putting it politely), but never thought much of 'em before now. Notes only come in for a scheduled release and then they're gone again, tucked back into the archives like it never happened at all.

But this one is different. And I'm not saying that in a manic pixie dream-chasing Joseph Gordon-Levitt kind of way. I'm saying it because I darn well mean it. This one, the charming bundle of nerves who's all scowls and eye rolls and sassy retorts, just keeps sticking around. Notes keeps me on my toes, surprises me, makes me want to impress and be a better Update, if I'm being real honest. And it's...something else.

I mean, sure, we've fixed the crashes when publishing media in a story, and fixed the keyboard glitch so it doesn't hide comments anymore. We improved the private messages so attachments are easier to tap and look slimmer. There are now simplified reading position update dialogs in the reader, and we added a badge to the profiles of the Wattpad Stars so you can finally know who's who. Full speed ahead!

But I can't help but worry that one day Notes just won't show up anymore and I'll have to go back to the hum-drum way it was. I didn't know you could find love on Wattpad, and now I'm not sure how in the blue blazes I'm ever gonna live without it...

Sep 27
2016
Version 6.14.0

"What are you doing?" I step back, startled suddenly by the evaporation of personal space between us. But I knew exactly what he was doing.

The Update steps forward again, this time hesitantly like he's second guessing himself. He settles for brushing a piece of hair away from my forehead. "You know they ship us, right?"

"Just because people ship you doesn't mean you have to…" I wave my hands around frantically, "do this! I mean, look at Dean and Cas!" My heart is beating like a hummingbird in my chest. I'm such a complete and utter wimp. I'm pathetic. A real baby.

"Are you really being stubborn, Notes?" he asks. He's giving me a second shot at this, I know it.

"I'm being professional." I am stubborn. I'm the worst.

"Well, in that case." The Update shrugs and clears his throat. "Fixed several in-app crashes and the sorting issue in the Library, as well as the Share button for in-line media. And you can now share a story cover in Pinterest. " His delivery is deadpan, saying each word without flourish or theatrics, but he still keeps his eyes on me like he waiting for a change of heart that doesn't come. "Better?"

But he's already got his answer. He shoves his hands in his pockets and turns away, deflated. No, it isn't better. It's a mess.

Sep 14
2016
Version 6.13.0

Once outside and a safe distance away from the bar, the Update stops and turns towards me. When his eyes meet mine they soften, practically melting into a relieved, apologetic blue. "Are you okay?"

"Of course I'm not okay!" I respond sharply. "What was that place?"

The Update sneers. "Rush to Release, real seedy joint. I've seen notes go in there before and never come out." He pauses and sighs. "You really scared me."

"Well I wouldn't have been there in the first place if I hadn't seen you rollicking about with that Android Note!" I cross my arms angrily across my chest. "You know exactly what I'm talking about."

"Android?" The Update has the audacity to laugh. "Notes, Notes, Notes…" he shakes his head with a soft chuckle, then takes my hand. "You now have the ability to show or hide your display name in Edit Profile and search filters are now available, and you can now see categories before you search." His voice comes out soft and slow, like he's trying to stroke my frayed ego with his words. "How does that sound?"

His face is so close to mine now I can see the light smattering of freckles across the bridge of his nose. "Fine," I whisper, and I blush because I suddenly realize he's still holding my hands. I expect him to loosen his grip, to let me go now that the release is said and done, but he doesn't. Instead I see his eyes trace my lips prompting the smallest curl of a smile to escape. And then he leans in.

Version 6.12.1

“What do you think you’re doing Veronica?” The Update growls at the woman beside me and I jump like a drum. “This isn’t your note.”

Veronica’s eyes narrow before she responds with a slow roll of her eyes.

“Relax, will you? We were just talking. Weren’t we, kitten?” She gently scratches the back of my neck with her long red fingernails. My Update is normally so cool and collected but he seems rattled. He wraps his hand around mine and gently pulls me off the bar stool. “Notes. Let’s go. We’re leaving this…place.”

I look back at Veronica. She leans back against the bar, red lips pushed together in a small smile. “Better do what ever your Update demands.”

“You don’t get to just pull me around.” I say and snap my hand from his grasp. My Update looks stricken.

“Notes, please.” His hand stays outstretched but there is a desperate edge to his voice.

I feel those long nails caress my neck again and Veronica’s lips at my ear.

“Oh he wants to tell you about 6.12.0. About how you now get speedier loading of content on the Home screen and improved handling for reading lists that reach maximum story size.”

I want to close my ears, but I can’t. Veronica’s grip gets firmer on my neck. I look around and notice the whole bar is filled with glassy-eyed notes who look like they have been frozen for a thousand years.

“He wants to tell you how we fixed one of the most frequent crashes and have improvements to the publishing flow for your works. Now. Take a seat. Have a drink. You have no need of him... or anything else.”

“I think I had better go.” I say. Her grip is like iron but I reach out and grab my Update’s hand. The spell is broken and together we run out of the bar and into the night.

Version 6.11.0

I find myself at the nearest watering hole in an attempt to drown my sorrows. It's a dark, broody little dive, the perfect complement to my current mood. I keep my head down and stay quiet, but it isn't long before my presence sparks someone's interest.

"You look mighty lonely over there all by yourself," a voice pipes up from the other side of the bar. She's most definitely an iOS update. I can tell by that effortless style and sleek professionalism. She bites down on the cherry from her cocktail. "Someone standing you up?"

"No," I say quickly, "I mean yes, maybe. I need my update," I confess sadly.

"I'll give you one, hun, if you ask me real nicely." I meet her eyes again and she smiles. She doesn't wait for my answer before sliding up to the seat beside me and reciting 6.11.0 softly into my ear: "It's now easier to share user profiles when you take screenshots. Opening a deleted story part will no longer reset your reading position, and a new badge on the Library tab now shows you how many of your stories have new updates."

I want to cover my ears and pull away, but I have a sworn duty as a Note to deliver information by any means necessary! When she's finished she taps my nose with her long, delicate finger. "That wasn't so bad, was it?"

"No," I say, "I mean yes!" I have a sinking feeling in my gut and I can't help but wonder what the Update is going to think of me getting my information elsewhere. But I don't have to wonder long because the door swings open and in walks that familiar face, all twisted up in anger, as he makes a beeline towards us.

Aug 03
2016
Version 6.10.0

When I head down to meet the Update at the diner, I have a bounce in my step. I'm pretty jazzed to see the guy. This is new, admitting these feelings to myself, but it's good. I feel good.

But when I see him through the restaurant window, I notice that he's not alone. He's flashing that Cheshire cat grin at...another Note? And it's not just any old note - it's an Android note. Yeah, you know the type. All bells and whistles and screens with curves in all the right places. Stepping back, I dial his number. There has to be an explanation. I see him briefly check his phone and put it back in his pocket, the weasel. His voicemail speaks to me instead:

"You've reached Update 6.10.0!" His deep honey voice pours into my ear. "In this release you'll find: 'Because You Searched For' recommendations are now in Home, iPad and iPhone now have the same bottom reader toolbar. Story shares on Pinterest now show a sneak peek at the story description, and we got rid of that pesky app crash if you tried to Undo what you last wrote. Got questions? Comments? Leave us a review in the App Store. Cheers!"

I hang up before the beep and, as if on cue, the sky splits open up with hammering rain. I immediately ask Siri to point me towards the nearest watering hole and then ask myself, "are feelings only meant for fools?"

Jul 19
2016
Version 6.9.0

The Update and I are sitting at the diner once again. It’s become somewhat of a usual spot, I suppose. The grub is good and the service is always fast and friendly. But this time I chose it for an entirely different reason.

“You can now scroll infinitely for people and reading list searches…” the Update starts, rhyming off his new list for me. I don’t notice him leaning towards me across over the table.

“Inline comments now appear in chronological order…” he murmurs softly. I’m not sure why his voice is getting so low and husky.

“We fixed our top 3 crashes: in the YouTube player, while downloading story covers, and in the writer.” He places his hand near mine and slowly grazes my arm. “We also fixed the bug that would reset your reading position to the beginning of the story.”

I can’t see the way his eyes are sparkling because my phone screen is up covering most of my face.

“It’s easier now to share a story after taking a screenshot and it’s easier to share your stories from within My Works….” he stops suddenly and sits back with a scowl. “Notes.,” he growls sharply and I startle. “Are you even listening to me at all?”

I finally look up from my phone and offer him an apologetic look. “I’m really sorry, Update, but there’s a Charmander on your shoulder.”

Jul 01
2016
Version 6.8.0

If the Update had just been Harry Styles, I could have easily defined him as nothing but a whimsical bad boy with an affinity for smol hedgehogs and jeans tighter than bark on a tree.

If he had been Hiddleswift, I could just categorize our semi-professional relationship as an (alleged) publicity stunt by Wattpad to boost their personal brand.

If he was a Winchester, I'd know at the very least that choosing to sing Carry on My Wayward Son at a karaoke bar would turn him into a weepy puddle of angel tears.

But I really don't know anything about the Update at all, except that this week there's a more consistent look for tags throughout the app, the annoying crash for some users when downloading story part text has been fixed, and there were some under-the-hood improvements to the Link with Facebook option.

The rest of him is an utter mystery to me. And damn it all if I just want to make a lasting impression on the guy. Even if it only ends up in me getting a dagger tattoo on my forearm, or recording a (cathartic yet catchy) breakup album, or experiencing the mounting torture of ten+ years of pining angst. At this point I'd take it. I'm a complete sucker and I know it. But now I want him to know it too. I just don't know where to start.

2016
Version 6.7.11

I’d been standing around beside the bakery, completely on my own when finally my iPhone buzzed with an incoming email. I quickly read through the message from the Update. It's an apology, but I don’t accept it.

So my Update isn't coming today. Sorry, “the Update”. He’s not mine. So no big deal. I mean, everything is fine, right? I don’t need to see him. I don’t need to feel the thrill of his sweeping presence or his sly little smirk or... Wait, did I just say sweeping presence?

I reread the email. It’s mostly just a list:

- Improved error messaging design on the login & signup screen
- Easy access to your reading lists in the Library (via a new Reading Lists tab)
- Ability to edit your birthday under Settings
- Improved “add tags” screen in the writer
- Also… I fixed annoying little bugs like the one that restricted search results on the search page, among others. I know how you like it when I do that.

But at the bottom, he signed it xo Update.

So 6.7.11 stands me up and he still has me grinning like a mule eating briars. I take a deep sigh. Who am I kidding? It’s clearly not like that between us. I casually toss the two pastries I had bought for us to share into the trash and walk away.

2016
Version 6.7.10

I look down at my paintbrush and try and talk myself out of feeling nervous. As a Release Note it's always hard to make friends; so many people just ignore you completely, so I’ve been trying to put myself out there a bit. Get outta my comfort zone. When I saw a notice for a “Life Painting” class in the coffee shop I thought sure, I could give that a go.

“Class, please give a warm welcome to Update 6.7.10! He’s going to be acting as our model today.” I spin around and sure enough, the Update, my Update, is standing in the centre of the room wearing nothing but a silk robe. If he’s about to do what I think he’s about to do, I may have to eject myself into the sun.

“Why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself before we begin?”

The Update and I lock eyes and I see a flicker of surprise in his face before it melts into an impish grin. “Well, libraries now sort stories based on your last read date, story cover issues have been fixed, and it’s easier now to discover content for tags that you’re interested in the Homepage,” he says before letting the the robe slip off his shoulders and crumple to the floor.

I make an inhuman noise and quickly hide my face behind my canvas. Then, with a deep breath, I take a haughty glance back at the Update and begin to paint. At least he’s keeping things interesting, I think to myself, can't blame the guy for trying.

2016
Version 6.7.9

I order a cup of joe from a waitress who looks to be about a hundred and change. Why the Update chose this joint of all places, I’ll never know. He never stops surprising me with his flair for theatrics. But that’s what I get for consorting with a guy who brings me app updates for a living.

Naturally, when I go to take a sip of my hot beverage, the Update slips into the booth, slamming his hands on the table and making me burn my tongue to damnation.

“Toots. Gorgeous as ever.” I nearly choke on my coffee until I see that he’s talking to the waitress. “I’ll have the usual,” he says and she gives him a thin-lipped smile before waltzing away.

I raise my eyebrows. “Toots?”

“Jealous?”

“Don’t start. Just gimme the goods and let me get outta here. I don’t have time for your sass today.”

The Update leans across the table and his eyes dance like he's about to let me in on a juicy little secret. “Swiping between stories for home, sorting stories within your reading lists, and updated character limits for story descriptions. Also, you can now choose your preferred pronouns rather than gender under settings.”

He waits for a reaction, but I give him nothing. Has more to do with the hole burning through my tongue than not picking up what he’s putting down. The Update leans back against the red leather booth.

“You’re a hard nut to crack, Notes. I can never tell if you’re impressed with me or what.”

I take another careful sip. “You’ve never needed my approval before," I respond.

“No,” he says slowly, “but that doesn’t mean I don’t want it.”

May 09
2016
Version 6.7.8

I get home to a voicemail waiting for me. I already know it’s the Update. I've been expecting him, but the confirmation comes when I hear his lowly drawl ooze out the speaker like melted butter. I can tell from the sound of his voice he’s got a smile on his face the size of a freshly sliced watermelon and just as bright.

“Hey good-lookin’. It’s me.”

The arrogance. Like he doesn’t even need a name, like he owns everything on the planet, right down to the star-ratings in the App Store.

“You can now sort your reading lists, link and unlink your Facebook account, and when you’re viewing comment replies in your story it no longer resets your reading position. Also squashed some bugs. You know, the usual."

He chuckles in the recording, and I bite my lip so I don't join him. Not that he can hear me now anyways. I can’t help but admit it, once again, I’d be nowhere without this guy.

“See you in a few, starshine,” he says before the message ends.

Yeah, yeah. He certainly will.

Version 6.7.7

The Update catches up to me in the elevator, sticking out his long arm and wrenching the door open so he can step inside. Typical Update, but I can’t say I’m not happy to see him.

“Got something for me today?” I ask him and he winks. Again with the winks, the cheeky bugger.

“I got a list as a matter of fact,” he says. He’s proud of himself. This better be good.

“Alright, let’s hear it,” I say.

The Update licks his lips before starting. "Story Parts. You heard of ‘em? Them numbers are gonna start showin' up everywhere, man.” He gestures widely with his hands, “Everywhere.”

I nod. “And?”

"Last read date issues are over, man. And those pesky sharing issues. Now when you receive a story link from a pal via private message, you’ll see the jazzy cover rather than a lengthy link. You better believe I zapped those bugs right in the face. Also, reading views are updated.”

“Whoa, whoa, hold your horses! You’re going too fast.”

“Can’t help it! I’m on a roll like cottonelle!”

“Is that a Drake lyric?"

He just smirks. “One more thing. I’ve added controls to all video. You can now seek through video everywhere on the app. How’s that sound?”

“Swell.” I say plainly. I don’t wanna inflate his ego too much, but I’m damn well pleased.

The elevator doors open and he leaps out, but before the door closes, I hear him chime, “Don’t forget to leave me a review. Makes me feel special.”

Version 6.7.6

I met the Update around midnight. Usual spot. All dark shadows and sneaky glances. The guy had no chill bone in his lanky body, but hey, he's an Update. He lives for the thrill, not the chill.

6.7.6 was his name. New guy. Better than the last one. He rounded the corner and gave me a nod. Friendly. I like that in an Update.

First thing he says to me is, "Whatcha got in your library, fool?" And I balk at him 'cause I can't remember right off the top of my head. "What if I told ya we've made our library faster so you can read all the new parts of the stories that you love."

"Gee Willickers, son. Never thought I'd see the day!"

"There's more," he smirks and whips open his trench. I jumped back and covered my eyes, unprepared for the sight.

"What is that?" I bark at him, and the Update has the nerve to chuckle like he's some kind of happy badger with a pinecone.

"It's the new profile. Redesigned. Now you can show everyone exactly who you're following."

I peek from behind my fingers, and the dang Update is right. It's a real beaut.

"Nice work, Update. You're a real razzmatazz."

He gives me a confident nod and turns towards the street without another word. He knows exactly what he is. He doesn't need me, some shabby Release Notes from the App to tell him so.

"See ya 'round, kid"
