It took him over a year, but D finally finished what there is of HF.

D: Okay, where's the next chapter?
Me: Um, it's not going so good.
D: I'm going to join the hordes of people on the internet yelling at you to write faster.
Me: What hordes? There's like eight people reading this.
D: Nine.


He also promised me that we could rewatch Free! during the long days of winter. Well, winter's almost over and he still hasn't let me rewatch it. I told him I need to in order to get inspiration to finish our fic. You know, the one we were supposed to be writing together but somehow became my responsibility and my fault for being unfinished. He's like, "What, I thought it was almost done, don't you just have to tie a bow on it?" Which is why I hate writing. Everyone assumes it's so easy, but it's really, really difficult for me, and I don't actually enjoy it.


I'm also distracted by trying to write Syaoran/Tomoyo for My Other Valentine, but the only way I can make it work is by killing Sakura, which isn't fluffy or happy. I may do it anyway. I don't know.

A couple of things. First, awwww, that's really sweet of D. J never reads my stuff. Even if I showed it to him he probably wouldn't read it--he just doesn't have a good attention span when it comes to reading lol.

The thing about everyone assuming writing is so easy but it really being difficult: YES. I think it's harder for a lot of people, even some professionals, than most people think it is. It's WORK. Parts of the process can be fun and enjoyable, but a lot of it is just plain old hard work.

Oooooh, Syaoran/Tomoyo? That's sounds *very* interesting. You know, if it's years later and they're adults...I mean I don't think Sakura needs to be dead. I mean, they were together in what, 5th and 6th grade or something like that? And even if you go by the other CLAMP cannon where they're older and still together (Tsubasa....sorta) they *still* could have broken up at some point. I'd try to go that route, because then it does bypass the angst-fest.

He can be pretty sweet at times, but I had to incentivize him by buying him Starbucks while he read.

I could go that route, which would be kinder and less painful, but part of the idea also includes the passing on of the cards, and she'd definitely need to be dead for that, I think.

Hah! Men...lol.

Hmm, yeah, I can't see any other way to pass the cards while she's still alive. Unless it was like the end of Buffy where there were suddenly all the potential slayers activated. But I've always thought that was kind of dumb so idk. But it's a possibility I guess. Hmmm. Dilemmas.

Activating all the potential slayers was pretty dumb, but I liked that I had Buffy canon to make my Slayer!Tomoyo idea actually work, so there was that.

kill Sakura

I can't even imagine a CCS fic where Sakura dies. She's so beloved by EVERYONE in the story, nobody can possibly move on and be happy after such an event.
