Daily Count Challenge to severina2001 (for Wednesday).

Uhm, I think we're a bit stuck with the Daily Count Challenge. :o/ So I'll just jump in. (I hope this is okay?)

I was tagged yesterday (by kaige68). Sadly I didn't do anything because I was too busy with real life. :o/ But I got an idea for a fanfic. It's not really something. ;o) But an idea is still better than no idea. :o) So I call this a little success. ;o)

severina2001, you're next for today (Wednesday). I hope there is still enough time for you to create something?! Good luck! ♡
