So! As my outline stands, we are officially in the middle of The Silver Standard. ...More or less.
Crusader of the Lost Mark means the fic isn't ending where I'd planned it to end, and in retrospect that's for the best. The second half--at least in brainstorm mode---was sort of unfocused and I'd been having a hard time figuring out what on earth to do with Flight to the Finish because aside from one small bit, I had no idea what to do with it. Now it's been given to me on a silver platter and what is now the conclusion is, in outline, much stronger.
Canon-balls are like wildfires, I guess. Burn everything down but stuff grows back better.
So that's at least one extra chapter, putting us at more like... 40% rather than 50%. Close enough. I'm rambling now, back to business.
As per tradition and to make up for not having an update this month and because real life doesn't give me time for the in-depth look at CotLM I'm opening the floor for an open question and answer session. OAnything about the story, about my other stories, my opinion on pickles beets, whatever.
