Daily count challenge to katyastarling

Had my nephews over for a visit this afternoon, but managed to get a little over 400 words written today. I wrote a drabble and started to make some headway on my crossover fic (nothing like starting the monthly challenge with 3 days to go in the month, let's say it's been percolating).

Handing it over to the phenomenal katyastarling. Wishing you abundant creativity today and beyond!
