maybe they were dumb reasons, but they were reasons
Okay, when it came down to it, I left the end of Chapter 4 as-is.

I couldn't make a tacked-on Nat POV work without it feeling, well, tacked on. And redundant. I don't need her wondering what her father thinks when we already know what he thinks. I don't need Guy coming out and telling her he passed when we already know he passed. It just ended up feeling like an unnecessary use of POV switch for such a minor thing. And having her react to his acceptance with a hug will only make their kiss in the next chapter feel less special.

And I left the last line, because without it, I feel like you'd be waiting for either a response or a follow-up, and that's not coming yet.

So, anyway, maybe it's still bad, but nothing I came up with made it any better.

Are you going to lock up your How Far entries so readers can't steal in and read the chapters before you upload them to the Pit?

I'm leaving them open in case anyone wants to leave feedback about characterization, canon discrepancies, etc, that I can still fix.
