Had hoped to have a workable draft to post here as a friends only thing, but I think the end needs at least another full reworking before there's any point in opening it to feedback. Should get that done within the next week, and then a few of you may have the enjoyment of picking through this lovely mess I've made myself, if you so wish. And an excerpt will be up on the site for everyone else.
For now, I think I need to hibernate a few days. All writing and no rest makes Megan a brain-dead girl.
