Music:painted skies - final fantasy xiv: heavensward
After a month, I finally finished the first scene in chapter six of Venus and Lysander. Granted, I did stop for a while. I went back to it here and there, never quite satisfied with how I fantasized about it beforehand. Last night I finally got the fantasy right. I wrote it today. This was right after I queued for a low level roulette in FFXIV on my machinist. As soon as I saw I was in Aurum Vale, I quit before anyone else loaded into the dungeon. I don't usually do things like that. I was already anxious to continue writing. A fifty minute dungeon would have gotten in the way of that. Sorry to the three people I abandoned. I finished the scene--that's what matters.

Common themes of gallant devotion; making sacrifices, even controversial ones.
