THE SITUATION: Saturday night, looking through my old hard-drive after work, when OH SNAP, WHAT’S THIS? A forgotten 10,000 word story all set and ready to go?! Say wha’?!!
Yep! This one’s from September 2012 and was meant to be a prequel to It’s Not A Cold Dark Place – the events of this one would have played a HUGE role in that story’s climax. Honestly, it's... not the best thing I've ever written. BUT! As a cute little diversion, I think it works, hence here it is two years late. I’ve given it one last mild edit, cleaning up the writing, adding one or two extra scenes, and cutting it down by over half. That's what counts as 'mild editing', right?
Hope y'all enjoy

I've been up over 30 hours straight at this point, and I've spent the last 27 of 'em travelling back home from Japan (and this coming after a heavy night of karaoke and witnessing the very worst total bloody shambles for heavens sake why do I support this damn team the GREATEST baseball match of all time), so trust me when I say that merely keeping my eyes open feels like a real mission at the moment, let alone typing out a blog post.
But I didn't feel this could wait. Thank you to everyone who read and enjoyed my contest entry, and who voted it into third place. I didn't even expect to make the final five, let alone the final three, so I'm truly honoured by this. Seriously. I'm so happy right now. Thank you all again

... where using the wi-fi on my phone will cost me, like, infinity-hundred quid or something. So if I don't respond to any comments until August that's the reason why
Also, my little children's story made the final five in Ob's competition! But the important thing here is that the other four stories deserve your immediate love and attention, so be sure to go and read them. Trust me. They are well worth your time (as is this criminally underrated little gem. So many awesome stories on this site lately, I can barely keep up!).
Stay cool everypony
