Upon looking at SKOM for the first time in 3 months, I realised I had forgotten what it was about and figured, hey, what the hell, might as well finish this completely unrecognisable chapter before I actually stop to think.
So I did. And guess what? I actually had fun for once. It was great writing without self-set length restrictions. Writing for fests is always a constant stream of shit this is too wordy got to cut out this paragraph dammit 20K OF WORTHLESS CRAP FUCK IT ALL
, but when I write SKOM, I can ramble as much as I want. Everyone probably knows this, considering this damn fic is already 130k and only about 2/3 finished.
Also, I have to say it: I love writing a fic without any pressure to add sex. I suck at sex, and it shows, and the whole thing is just a very stressful endeavour. I know "you don't need to write sex for fests" blah blah blah, but tbqh, the only H/D fics rated under R I've seen on multiple rec lists are classics. I just checked my bookmarks, and out of 200 H/D fics, only 7 of them are PG-13 or less. Two of them were classics. The rest are extremely short one-shots. So there you are. I'm not sure where I was heading with this paragraph. I'll shut up now. Here's the chapter.Title:
Some Kind of Miracle (22/?)Author:
Non-DH compliant, but still contains some DH spoilers; an excess of gratuitous flangst in this chapterDisclaimer:

Unbetaed. Let me know if there are any glaring errors. *** ETA: I just realised that this fic's two-year anniversary was four days ago. Wow. I applaud anyone who has put up with me for that long :p ***21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 P( Collapse )
