lord have mercy

Curled up in my bed last night, thinking about my BB, when suddenly I realized that one of the pillars of my story made no sense whatsoever. God damn it. I'm seriously tempted just to ignore it. Can I pretend like everything is okay? God....twenty-two days to posting. Oy.

Hi, by the way. :)

*grabs you*

Oh, man. I have been there. I hate that. I am usually too annoyed at myself not to fix it, but hey - you do you.
That .gif seriously makes me snorfle every time.
*smishes you*
Hi hi hi. Glad you're back!

I always think of you when I do! Heee!

Oh man...I have to change it. I've got the doc open, so of course I'm farting around on FB instead of working. And you know that freaking logic bomb is going to bug the hell out of me, says the person who still edits fics on AO3 she posted about a bazillion years ago. :D

Heeee. :D

HA. I have that same impulse. I usually resist on the older stuff, but....yeah.

Get your butt off FB and get typing!
*stern look*

*opens FB*

If it's going to make you too twitchy, then fix it. 22 days should be plenty, if you just put in a gusset here and there, a couple of darts and a tuck or two.

If it requires ripping out all the seams, trimming pieces in one place and adding material in others, you might consider posting it as is, and editing it once it's up. I've done it, more than once.

Glad you're back!

Oh my gosh, I wondered if that was a thing I could do!

I have most of a chapter that needs to be reworked to make it make sense. I mean, I could leave it, and most people probably wouldn't question it...crap. I do this kind of thing all the time. I get so caught up in my own stuff that I forget to take a step back and ask 'why?" Though to tell the truth, that's a question I should have asked constantly through this fic. It's readable, just...lol!

I refuse to panic, though. It's been an odd and weirdly emotional few weeks, but I'm not going to run around shrieking. Unless I do it outside. Give the neighbors something to think about--we've been so quiet the last couple of years. :D

Yes, I think I'm back! I think I'm finally over myself, and boy, do I miss everybody!

Is it a load-bearing pillar? And if so, can you shore it up with liberal amounts of "Well, it wouldn't be Supernatural if we didn't take liberties, would it?" Because seriously? Reapers were always their own thing until the writers needed someone the Winchesters actually gave a damn about to blow themselves up for Metatron, and then suddenly, and for one episode only, they're angels! Thirteen years after our first pagan god, we still don't know what's up with them or what their existence means for Show's admittedly wobbly Judeo-Christian-ish theology. Earth can't have been created all the ways, and it won't end all the ways, and what the frilly heck, Show!

It's not quite Show levels of wtf, but the more I reread this this, the more it falls apart, so it might just be me. Or, I really did write a gigantic turkey of a fic in which case I am royally boned. I'm gonna sleep on it and hope the morning brings clarity. No matter what the verdict is, I'm plugging on because there's no way I'm screwing my artist up! Besides, parts of this story are really cute and I want to share! ;D

I wouldn't mind reading it for you for a second opinion :D<3

Hey! <3
Jun. 4th, 2018 03:37 am (UTC)
I will take you up on that! I'll PM you with my problem! :D
Jun. 4th, 2018 03:49 am (UTC)
Just in case you don't have it😊

Jun. 2nd, 2018 04:37 pm (UTC)
Oh no, perhaps it's not as bad or obvious as it seems to you. I hope you can fix it if necessary. *hugs*
Jun. 4th, 2018 03:38 am (UTC)
I think...I might just try and fake it. And fix it later. I need to at least finish what I have. I thought I'd be done by now but...*shuffle blush cough rubs nose*

*whispers* i was baby-sitting
Jun. 4th, 2018 02:34 pm (UTC)
Aw, how is your beautiful grandson? I bet he's growing!

I think finishing it first is a good plan, then you can go back and tweak if needed!
Jun. 2nd, 2018 11:57 pm (UTC)
It's good to see you, bb! Even if you're flailing over your fic at the moment. Take a deep breath and then try to outline what needs to be fixed/changed. It might be simpler than you think right now. And even if isn't, I have no doubt that you can do it. ((((hugs))))
Jun. 4th, 2018 03:40 am (UTC)

Yes, definitely, god, an outline of the prob is a good idea! It was just this punch to the brain, like "WAIT!! WTF IS ACTUALLY GOING ON?" I think it might not even be that bad, like, maybe just me and a few folks would notice the logic bomb in the middle of the chapter....anyhoo, we'll see! :)

You got this!!!

Guess what I bought yesterday... an honest to God vintage cape. Yes a cape! Now, I just need to find an AlItalia jet and we can reenact our favorite gif
Jun. 4th, 2018 03:43 am (UTC)
I need mutiple pics of you flinging the cape off your shoulder--you do it and I'll do it too! I have a somewhat capelike garment because I'm part batman part grandma just because.

I got this! Because I'm thinking I'll fake it! Woooooo!!
Jun. 7th, 2018 03:06 am (UTC)
So, you're BatGran, just because. Check.

Jun. 7th, 2018 05:58 am (UTC)
YES!!!!!! I AM!! :D
Jun. 4th, 2018 12:08 am (UTC)
Hey, you! Just jumping in to say, you know, we’re our own worst critics, and I am certain you’re going to pull a miracle out of your ass, and it will be a shockingly delightful miracle at that! ;)

I also guarantee I would likely not spot said plothole, but kudos to you for not slacking off and letting it slide!

Love you!!!
Jun. 4th, 2018 03:48 am (UTC)
It would be! Or shockingly painful...*padumpbump*

Don't praise me for not ignoring the plothole...I might just be erecting a decorative fence around it and planting nasturtiums. ;D

*squeeze-huggle* love you too! ♥
Jun. 4th, 2018 12:56 pm (UTC)
Oh dear, hun, sometimes you CAN just ignore it, but you won't!
Jun. 5th, 2018 12:51 am (UTC)
oh no, I *want* to--so much, lol!!
Jun. 7th, 2018 10:46 am (UTC)
*snorts* The Muse Related OCD is STRONG in this one ;)
Jun. 5th, 2018 12:41 am (UTC)
Dude, you never sent that recent copy to me!!!! :-D I post the 14th and am still madly writing, but soon as I'm done i can 100% be yours.
Jun. 5th, 2018 12:50 am (UTC)
Fuck...I screwed it up so hard that it's kind of all over the place, with gaping holes now! I've been on that old see-saw of "You fucking suck you worthless shit" and "ah, you're not so bad." Right now I'm not so bad so I'm trying to get my shit together, oy! I'll wait until after you post, is that okay?

*HUGGGGGGGS* Thank you! ♥
Jun. 5th, 2018 01:09 am (UTC)
Sure thing!!!! *HUGS*
