Thanks to the efforts of a friend, this is happening.
The author's note was kind of weird, on a random note. Wish me luck. I don't know whether I'm brave or incredibly odd for attempting this, but we'll see how it goes, for better or worse.
I really kind of want to finish this tonight before I go to sleep, so I'll stay up as late as I can to finish it. I just have no idea what my reaction to this will be.
