Daily Count Challenge to slashluv18!

Well, I got a little over 500 words yesterday, which isn't nearly as much as I was hoping for. BUT, on the plus side, I did finish editing the little ficlet I started during Sunday's word wars and I began sketching the outline of a new fic that I'm hoping to finish up sometime this week. So, didn't get all the words, but even still good progress was made.

Passing the challenge off to slashluv18! Go get 'em! :D
