maybe it's on the top of my head
This is starting to remind me of that other chapter that took me over a year to finish. I hate this plot so much, but I've committed to it. It's why I don't write things with plot or politics. I can't write plot, and I hate politics.

I did come up with something I should have thought of a long time ago to have Natalia more proactive (it reminds me of when I went over my outline for Shadows and realized I had Tomoyo doing nothing after the reveal, so I ended up revamping the whole thing), but the problem becomes how do I integrate that with the climax/resolution I've had in mind for years? I know details change, and how you get to the end can evolve as things go along, but 17 chapters in, I have to get to the same end I've already been setting up.

I mean, I'm sure that when Revenge started four years ago, the original showrunners probably never intended David to be alive. I mean, it's stupid. But here we are now, and it's done nothing but f up everything for Emanda. And I was willing to see what happened, because surely he had a plan and good reasons, right? No, clearly they don't know what they're doing, and now throwing Nolan under the bus, the one person who has always been steadfastly loyal to Emanda? I can't see how they're going to get out of this and have it be in any way satisfactory. I thought we were supposed to think David knew what was up, given how uninterested he was in "Amanda's" child and wedding album, but if he's really that dumb--and if Emanda's just going to let it continue for no other reason than plot-stalling--then whatever. I'll still watch, because I've come this far, but I'll be curious to see if Emanda and Nolan realize none of this was actually worth it in the end.


Anyway, I thought I had a point in there somewhere.

At least the main showrunner bailed after season two, and I think it's been clear ever since. Yeah, the plot with David gets more and more stupid.

And plot sucks! I am writing the most plotty fic I have ever attempted, and part of me is "screw this". Except I Really Want to Write This Fic, so here I am.

And I just hate Victoria so much, so having David be stupid on top of that just.... ugh.

This is me in a nutshell.
