I actually managed to write something for Bright Skies! ... But then I couldn't make it fit. -_-;;; My only prompts left are Birthday and Holiday, which I *technically* already wrote for, but I don't think they fit with the way the story is now. I'll still keep them as side stories, but I'm trying to get the ending to flow better. Which lead me to re-reading and editing.
Don't worry, it's not a full re-write. (I promise!) I'm just trying to fix minor typos and things that I've noticed, and breaking up the chapters that really should have been made into two separate ones. A lot of them are already fixed on the Archive of Our Own
version, but I wanted to fix/edit the Fanfiction.net version, too. Which lead into the debate of whether I should fix what I've posted on LiveJournal, and exactly how I should go about it.
So I made a poll
! (Which unfortunately can only be found at LiveJournal, because I don't have a paid Dreamwidth account. -Sulks-)
Can you believe I first posted Bright Skies in March of 2008? I had it almost finished by December of the same year, except for the last couple chapters. I've been trying to end this damn thing for *four years*. x.x
Then after two days of glaring and swearing at Bright Skies, I decided to finally get off my butt and finish my master post for all my fanfics.
Obviously this isn't it.
I changed my LiveJournal layout too, 'cause I was getting bored with it.
Going through old entries was a bit depressing, especially over the past year. A lot's changed - not all of it bad, but not all of it good, either. I know it's the past, and all I can do is move forward from here, but it still left me a little sad.( Especially reading comments from psyco_chick32. )
Ironically somewhere between sorting old journal entries and editing Bright Skies and ADSoR, I found this vid.
At first it made me think of the beginning of Bright Skies, but it sort of fits how I'm feeling at the moment, too. The vid itself is gorgeous, but probably won't make any sense to anyone who hasn't seen/knows Final Fantasy VII. (Particularly if you don't know anything about Advent Children or Crisis Core.) But it's still pretty, and the song is lovely in a very bittersweet way.
