Daily challenge to agdhani!

There was a lot going on yesterday, and it wasn't until right before I was going to head to bed that I remembered I hadn't written any words for the day. So I sat down and managed about 200 words before deciding that was good enough.

I have a fic for a fest due tonight, so there will be many more words today, but at least 200 less than there would have been otherwise!

But now, I am passing the challenge to agdhani! I hope the words are treating you well!

Dreamy's next!

A 5k day brought me into the start of chapter 7. I suspect work will be insane enough that finishing 7 will take be all week. But I'm ~250 words shy of 28k, so I am not complaining. I'm still likely to break 50 by Thanksgiving.

Dreamy, give us a good start for the work week :D
