So I was gonna post my squee about this weekend’s con, but I need to get this out of my system first because… Oh god, you guys, I finished my Londo chapter and it hurts so much!
Even though this isn’t the last chapter yet, it almost feels like it is because so much happens and by “so much” I mean practically everything? And that’s only the abridged version - if I’d put everything in this chapter that I originally wanted to, I’m pretty sure I’d have been writing forever. That said, I hope I didn’t rush things too much; at one point, it felt like I was just racing from plot point to plot point trying to tie it all up without losing momentum, and I’m still not quite sure if I managed to avoid that trap. Also, because I was fretting so much about not turning this chapter into a huge melodrama, I might have overcompensated and made it too clinical instead, but I’ve been tweaking it for so long I really can’t tell. Chances are if I’d have gone for more drama, I would have ended up being just as worried that I took it too far. Anyway, after this chapter there’s one more, and then an epilogue, but I have good hopes (*fingers crossed*) that, now the toughest bit is done, it’s just gonna be riding the rollercoaster all the way down!
