well, that's a nice round number

Bucky's broken dick epic (Codename: Aluminum Bastard): 100,192 words
Act II so far, spanning 6 days of internal time: 44,510 words
Events remaining in Act II: 6.5
Acts after this one: 3. Acts. hahaha ha ha. /o\
Target posting date: April 15, 2016. (Which is to say: three weeks before US release of Captain America: Civil War, which will put this a full two movies away from canon instead of one + Ant-Man.)
Confidence in hitting target posting date: hahahaha ha ha WHERE IS THE GIN.

I'll just. Be lying on the floor questioning my life choices.

(Today was actually a good day for working on this story but OH MY GOD I SWORE NO MORE QUARTER MILLION WORD STORIES AFTER THE LAST QUARTER MILLION WORD STORY, AND I MEANT IT. THANKS, BUCKY.)

YOU CAN DO IT or maybe not but we'll love you anyway? But probably you can do it.

Hey, uh, I feel really awkward about this, but I tumblr posted a response to Now that the War is Through With Me before I understood how easy it is to totally miss stuff on tumblr and it was the middle of the night and it turns out that I really want you to see it, or at least to know that you decided intentionally not to see it (because that's ok too) rather than that you never got to see it because tumblr is a fairly terrible thing.

Because you seemed uncertain about the story, but it really, it was important to me. It is important to me. So, warn for American end of life care, death (human), death (animal) and if that hasn't scared you off here is a link *flees*

*hugs back* You can totally reblog it if you want to, but don't feel obligated.

I realized I should turn my ask box on yesterday, so it didn't exist when that post went up. It didn't occur to me that that is an alternate way to talk to people privately, since I've only interacted with tumblr as an anon before.

I am full of emotions in a good way and I don't know what else to say. Thank you!

OMG, *pets*.

I don't know how you do it, but I have faith you can. I am so impressed by your larger-number-words stories. I tap out over 20k.

So here is a cheerleader to keep you going: *\o/*

An epic novel in the making. Feels like waiting for the next Harry Potter book.

Good luck and enjoy the process!
