Those of you who've followed me may have noticed the lack of activity on either Directive: Grow or Mal Keyye Ko Keizaal. I apologize for that - I've simply been lacking a desire to write lately. So it's with an acknowledgement of the irony that I give you a preview of coming attractions, as it were.
Earlier tonight, a discussion on fic prompts brought up the following: "Spike and Thunderlane in Dodge Junction. Go." About ten minutes later, I came up with this:
Fifteen years after the reappearance of the Crystal Empire, Spike acts as the Royal Emissary of the Solar Sisters. When the weather over Dodge Junction simply won't heel, he must team up with newly minted Weather Investigator Thunderlane to get to the bottom of things.
And now, about six and a half hours after that, I've got something to show for it. If you're interested, click this elegant and finely crafted link to have a looksee at what's suddenly got me writing again. Pony willing it will remain short (relatively) and not evolve into the monster that D:G has become. Actually finishing a story would be nice.
