Two. Kioko, my favoritest author ever (college fans unite!) for the Percy Jackson fandom has started a Percy Jackson fic battle. If you are interested, please join! First, everyone puts up prompts. For example: Percy/Annabeth, the end or Percy/Nico, alcohol intolerance (admit it, this one will bring out riotous fics). And then, the participating authors can write as many fanfictions based on the prompts as he or she desires. I have mentioned this before, but I love fanfiction the way I loved Ramen noodles (before I went to college and overdosed). But I have not overdosed on fanfiction, luckily. Here is our rather obvious attempt to alleviate our grief for the series being over, trying to keep our love alive. Thanks to the amazing Kioko for hosting. If I could steal her writing and not call it plagiarism, I would do it.
Yeah, I'm going to have to accept the fact that this draft of ATRS will most definitely not be done by my birthday at the end of July. That was supposed to be my birthday present to myself. It's not happening. I am at 20,000 words for it, though. That's a fourth done? If I speed up a little, I might be able to pull it off. We shall see.
