It has been nine months since I posted the last completed chapter of my John Porter/Strikeback fan fiction Recovery on AO3, and coming up on TWO YEARS since I originally wrote and posted it on Dreamer Fiction…Livy is so right…
Potius sero quam numquam:
better late than never!
The story where I left it, could stand as complete, but I had always intended to return to it to add a final epilogue to tie up a few loose ends. Lately, I’ve wondered if I would be able to return to it after leaving the characters languishing so long. It’s not as if I haven’t thought about how I wanted to close the story, and what I wanted to say, it’s just that available time and proper inspiRAtion haven’t seemed to coincide in the past 18 months.
I’m happy to report that inspiRAtion and available time seemed to jell last week and I sat down and mapped out the first section of the epilogue. Seems my worries about finding the characters again were unfounded. When I started writing, it was something like reconnecting with an old friend – once the initial ice was broken, the “conversation” began to flow easily. I’m hoping to have that epilogue posted by the end of January!
I haven’t decided if it should be mostly sweet, or more than a little spicy – any votes?
