Thanks, Alba17, for passing that twirling, writing baton! ;-) I'm happily reporting in with 3,400 words (oddly enough even, and on a work night, to boot! Imagine that!). I also shot a little more than 20 prompts over to the older_not_dead comm for their approaching new promptathon. Feeling pretty good right now, but I've gotta try to unwind now so I can sleep!
