13drabbles Challenge
Drabbles Completed: 4/13

Title: Pendants
Series: ToA
Length: 800 words
Theme: #8, "The Past"
Character: Natalia (Guy/Natalia)



I went over again. Dammit. I'm counting them anyway, because I'm just using ideas that need more than a drabble number of words, but I'm going to try to STOP DOING THAT.

I tried something different style-wise this time. I don't think I like it.

This one requires more canon knowledge than the last one, so it may be confusing. The bad writing probably doesn't help.

This is sort of a backdoor way of writing a couple different ideas I had started, one being the Meryl AU, and one being a Guy-Mary sibling fic.

With nine themes left, I should be able to break them easily into three-a-month chunks and get them done by the end of the year. Since my goal seems more doable now, I may step back from this for now and work on some other stuff, and particularly flesh out Out Here a little more so it's something worth posting elsewhere.

Anyway.

I don't know why you're stressing out about the word count. Just write what comes; it's not like we're sticking with the other rules for the challenges anyway.

I've enjoyed everything so far, though I've had limited time to actually go through with my critique lenses (or write anything of my own, for that matter), so I haven't really commented even though I've been reading. I couldn't tell you much about the characterization anyway (I still really need to check out this series), so I'd be limited in the help I could give you.

I guess I'm only stressing about word count because I set this up as a drabble challenge, and then half of what I've done was too long. It's not a big deal, I know. I sometimes get hung up on the wrong things. I need to be proud of myself for actually writing so much already.

I appreciate you reading, comments or not, especially as it's not a series you're familiar with. That earns you big ♥ from me. And as long as you accept Guy and Natalia are awesome and hot together, it's all good.
