Repost/Reblog Middletone’s Awesome Reply To My Ask/Update.
AO3 Auction Fic Progress Report: Chapters thus far - 2. Words thus far - 2043. Comments - Having a cold and trying to be creative are just about mutually exclusive. That being said, I’m getting better and am optimistic things will flow faster as my brains are increasingly free of goo. Enjoyed the e-brownies and milk! ;D (Share this on your blog or not, as you please, m’dearie.)
((For those of you out of the know: I won Random-Nexus in the Ao3 Auction with a bid of $100 and have possibly never NOT regretted doing something more. She has been given a Pairing, a very detailed list of my fic likes/dislikes, and like 5 prompts regarding possible plot to choose from. The only things I know for 100% sure about this fic is that the Pairing is Mystrade (BBC Sherlock Mycroft/Lestrade) and that I’m going to love it to pieces once it is completed.))
OMFG THERE ARE CHAPTERS! CHAPTERS!!! AND IT’S MORE THAN 2K WORDS LONG “THUS FAR”! I CANNOT EXPRESS IN WORDS HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT THIS, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. IF YOU COULD HAVE SEEN MY REACTION WHILE READING THIS IT WOULD HAVE LOOKED SOMETHING LIKE THIS:
I CAN’T SEEM TO GET THIS STUPID SMILE OFF MY FACE. I MIGHT ACTUALLY DIE FROM HAPPINESS ONCE THIS IS FINISHED, THEN FLAIL AROUND IN MY GRAVE WHILE I READ IT, AND THEN DIE AGAIN FROM PURE UNADULTERATED JOY. AHSDAFLGF;LSAJKAJ’AS;LD;LKF’FGDFLJHKFGHKJ
I am not happy to hear you’ve been sick though, bb. Colds are no fun and are definitely not conducive to the creative process. *cuddles* But YAY for feeling better! I send you internet soup to help you get past the last vestiges of brain-slowing goo.
You take your time getting better; a healthy Random makes a happy Muse I imagine. It is more important to me that you are well and happy with the final product than it is for me to have the fic ASAP. I went into this ventured fully prepared and completely content to wait a few months for my fic, so don’t feel pressured to rush yourself.
I was going to say something about how awesome it is that you’ve already written 2 chapters, but then realized I don’t know how many that’s out of and therefore have nothing to gauge your progress against. Based off your previous ficcing endeavors it’s something between “more than 2” and “an epic fuck-ton”.
I am totally cool with anything within that range.
I’ve decided that you aren’t allowed to tell me how long it will be until you are almost/completely finished writing it. I think we’ll both enjoy me progressively becoming more and more flaily with each update you send. :D (Side note: That Mystrade fic you linked me to was delicious. You are more than welcome to push more recs my way.)

Milli! OMG! Your reply made me grin so hard my face was aching!
I’mma send you another update in a few mins, but you don’t need to go to all this trouble again, srsly. Just believe me this one made my week!
(BTW - feeling much better, I think the e-soup worked! ;D Hee hee!)
