So I've actually been focusing on Music Box, which still needs a better title since the music box is basically just a MacGuffin, and I think the reason it's not working is because the section about Asch just sticks out all awkward and really belongs in its own piece, which maybe I'll do. I think I'm going to cut-and-paste it into a new document and try to work it into that set of drabble themes, where it could work better.
Except the whole A/N thing... you know, I really just need to ramble about them so I can get that all out of my system and lay it out. The main thing is they haven't seen each other in seven years, and while I can believe and accept that the feelings are still there, it's completely different. They don't know each other as adults. She has no idea what he's been through, and is only starting to learn and then he DIES. I know I'm apparently crazy for thinking that while children can love each other, they're nowhere near understanding it on an adult level, but that transition from innocent childhood love to adult romantic love is something to work through. I think for her, it's a combination of old childhood feelings, sympathy for what he's been through, and simple physical attraction. She has to reconcile who he was with who he is now except he DIES, and so I don't feel like that's ever resolved for her, and that's why it's tricky.
Anyway. What was I talking about?
Oh, yeah. Can I just write G/N porn and skip all this?
