But I made it across. I somehow managed to write ~40k in 9 days, and will a) get myself some tea, b) watch House *laughs*, and c) think about a book or pen or both that I want to reward myself with. ^_^ I'm happy.
Thanks for all the support everyone! ^___^ Shadow will be reprogrammed to her normal(?) self in ~1.5 more weeks. *laughs*
