Okay, yes, backstory fic is all written up and at 3,684 words. That is rather considerably longer than I was expecting. I’ll give it another run over, I think, before I post it and see if there’s anything I can excise. I fear I might be added bits here and there, though, improving on sections that were originally written more as filler to support the initial exposition.
Also I haven’t described Crimson at all. Not even once. Even though she’s frakking named after her hair.
The amount of effort I’m putting into this is ridiculous. How did this happen?
golly gosh this backstory fic has wound up much longer than i was initially expecting
Instead of saying “MAN UP”, you should say “TANK UP”.
Because you know, when you’re the tank in a group, you’re taking the hits. Which is kind of what the first expression is aiming for.
Except this one is gender neutral.
cosigned so hard
