Almost 80 pages now that I've actually split the thing into chapters.

But... it's done. It's finished. I've written the last lines, even though I'm actually not too happy with that bit and will probably want my beta to have a gooood look at it. But it's done.

This is the first piece of non-oneshot fiction I have ever finished... ever.

...

...I'm too tired to just sit here in bask, I should be in bed, but I had to write this first:

I can do it. I can finish things. It is possible. I am not a hopeless case as a writer.

Take that, self.

So I have just finished some pretty intense emotional scenes (at least, they were intense for me to write, would not be surprised for the words to be a lolfail) and all the vaguely intellectual thinky thinky. Conclusions have been drawn! People have gone back to being cooperative too quickly! (Second drafts are yay.) Non-main characters and non-canon ones to boot got to show off their skills! Things work and it was all pretty cool.


But.


CLIMAX NEXT CLIMAX NEXT.


I have been envisioning this scene since I first started writing this thing. Now... I just have to try and make it not suck.



Challenge accepted, fic.

I should probably stop making Surge a mother hen but it's so much fun I can't even help it. I should definitely stop procrastinating by, for example, making LJ entries that no one is going to read.


In my defence, I am still fully intending to stick to that promise of finishing this draft before August, and I actually really kinda desperately need to finish it in that time because I have a whole bunch of books that I must at least skim read because GUESS WHAT GUYS MY EXAM RESULTS WERE AWESOME AND AMAZING AND MADE ME SQUEE LIKE MAD OH AND THEY ALSO MEAN I AM GOING TO MOTHERFUCKING OXFORD UNIVERSITY.


NOTHING HURTS FOREVER.




This shit also got me a free drink last night. It was a great day.
