Well, I did it.



I wondered if I was going to recover from the Great Thanksgiving Writing Drought, but in fact it turned out to be not so hard. I wrote like mad on Monday and Tuesday, and actually managed to catch myself up to the point where I had less than 1,500 words to finish tonight. And, voila!

The resulting story is, as expected, fairly craptastic as a piece of literature. But I've worked out the plot, and what the characters are doing, and have even written one or two little bits that I'm kind of proud of. 90% of it is characters sitting around reciting explicatory dialogue that will most likely be cut out completely during editing, but it was important for me to get it down so that I would know what happened. The word I'm looking for, I believe, is "potential."

Plot details, for the curious )

In any case, the most important thing, for me, is that it's the first piece of fan fiction, no matter how crappy, that I've actually finished in four years. So, Yay!

And now to bed.
