I've gotten busy with some computer stuff. YAY! At least for those who are interested in my fanfic. Not so yay for those waiting for me to get my sorry ass back to posting on message boards, sorry.

Anyway, last weekend, I finally settled down and got to work on Unexpected American Vacation - the fanfic it has taken me more than a year to complete. Well, you may yay and squee now (if you're reading the fic and waiting for me) I have finished it.
No, the last chapter has not been posted yet, but unless I find major (and totally unexpected) problems during my third and final proofread, it should be posted no later than Friday. *crosses fingers*

After I typed the first rough draft, I let it set, because I was way too happy with it. I just don't trust me sometimes. But everything I'd handwritten just seems to work WAY too well for me to entirely trust it. Honestly, even the rough draft read much better than I could have hoped. So, I cleaned that draft up and worked the changes/edits in and was still very very happy. But I decided to let it sit for a bit before I do the last reading...

So to the (unknown) delight of some I decided to use the time to go back to Sex, Lies, and Alternate Universes. There was one scene that was really needing to be written and added to the story - that has now been done.

And I always knew the ending wasn't a real ending, it wasn't meant to be. It did what it was supposed to do at the time - calm things down a bit before they took off again in the sequel, but not close the story down.
Well, I went back and merged what originally was intended to be the first two chapters of the sequel into a closing chapter. However, after all that, because of having jumped back into the story/universe, I actually find myself thinking about separating those two chapters again and working out a sequel. Strange, because I still don't have a good idea for one, but it is what I'm finding myself wanting to do now.

The downside is... And the upside is - One more ficCollapse )
