Dept. of Fanfic Elation

Achievement Unlocked

I've finished Chapter 26 of Hearts and Moons. After *thinks* more than a year. 

I'm writing this with as few exclamation points as possible, in order to be as maturely pleased with myself as possible. But please imagine the entire post littered with the little things.

I'm not going to post it yet. I'd actually like to get another chapter done, so that I can post them consecutively. 

I'm so close to the finish I can taste it, folks. 

Ten years. GRRM levels of slowness (at least in the realm of fic. Don't worry, I'm not comparing myself to him.) And maybe the end in sight? 

As I said. 

w00t!1!

(OK, two exclamation points. That's still mature, isn't it?)

Woohoo! Also, every time you post about this story it also gives me hope that I can get my WIP-o-doom finished as well (6+ years and counting).

I know you can get it done: at 6 years, you're still ahead of me!

Aww, well done you!!! W00t! <3

(If I still wasn't minus all my icons, I'd use my other Silver one that says "Your shininess is noted," but consider this Silver carrying the same sentiment.)

Sorry you're minus your icons - but any "Silver" icon is pure gold in my books. Heh.

Silver resents the implication that Gold is better, because he isn't, as the audios prove. ;-)

My icon removal was a failed experiment to see if I could do without them. Obviously, I can, but with decreased happiness, but I keep forgetting to fill up the spaces because all the possibilities vs my old favourites. (But I restored James Maxwell and Suzanne Neve last night and that made me feel better already.)

Thanks; I actually discovered, by going back to Chap. 25 and reviewing it, that I needed to get rid of a few mistakes in Chap. 28 (matching weapons to characters, and such; that's what happens when you take so bloody long between chapters that you forget specifics), but I'm already working on Chap. 27. Woo-hoo!

I can't imagine taking that long to write a fanfic. I think the longest I ever took was a year, give or take. My hat is really off to you for sticking with it for so long, especially since the show is so different now!

I just can't let it go.

*resisting the urge to look soulfully into my fic's eyes and say "I wish I could quit you."*

LOL.

I had a couple of original fics that I gave up on halfway through, usually because I was a student and had to move, and for some weird reason, the physical re-location (plus having to focus energy on so many other things) caused whatever impetus I'd had to write the story in the first place to go right down the crapper. So I commend you for being able to hang onto your inspiration. : )

Oh, inspiration comes and goes. Stubbornness is forever.
