Overall, writing's been going well, if very, very slowly. Does anybody else get to the point where, after you've been working on the same story for a couple days or weeks, and pretty much know exactly how everything is going to happen, writing starts to feel...not hard or boring, but predictable, I guess? The first spark of inspiration is gone, but there's still something satisfying about working on a project you love, even if it isn't that exciting anymore. Anyway, that's where I am right now. I'm happy that I'm still making semi-steady progress, but I also can't wait to start some new projects once these ones are wrapped up.

Defenders Big Bang Fic
The first of June was the second checkpoint, and I turned this one in at 5,010 words. I'm almost exactly halfway through now, and still fiddling around with the plot a bit --I just realized that I'll probably have to go back in once the first draft is finish and clarify some stuff, plus maybe add in a few more sections. Most of my fics before this have been on the shorter side, so the plots were simple enough that I didn't need to worry over them too much. This one, though...it's fun to be working on something longer, but I just hope that it ends up making sense.

girl!Peter series
The second fic should be finished by today or tomorrow. I didn't expect it to get so long, and honestly I could probably cut down on some of the dialogue without effecting the plot, but Pete and Yondu are both such a joy to write. My first fic with these two ended on a sad note, so going in to this one I really wanted to showcase the wacky and fun aspects of Pete's story, without forgetting that (for good reason!) she feels very lost and very angry. Incorporating seventies and eighties music was, as always, a blast.

I'm Not Your Hero series (otherwise known as my Lisa-Castle-survived-and-is-best-friends-with-Laura-Kinney-because-duh series)
I haven't started another fic in this series yet. Not because I don't want to, but because, while working on Pete's fic, I decided that having three separate fics in progress (not counting the two that are currently on the back burner) was way too much. I've still got tons of ideas, and once the second girl!Peter fic is finished I'll be starting on another one for Lisa and Laura. This time around, it'll most likely be from Laura's point of view, which I'm both excited about and also incredibly nervous over. In Logan Laura was sometimes such a hard character to read, and I really, really want her voice to be distinctive from Lisa's. I worry a lot that all my characters sound the same, which objectively probably isn't true? Maybe? We'll see, I guess.
