I fail at life and writing consistently. In my defense, a poop-ton of stuff has happened between uh...September 25th until now. 7 months is totally a reasonable amount of time to write 16 pages! I mean, when you account for the fact I lost three months to that stupid Digimon MMO, spent two months just obsessively writing and rewriting the first two and a half pages, and the fact that I'm working 45+ hours a week plus am taking classes...
Yeah. I fail at life and writing consistently. Also, this chapter was stupidly hard to keep consistent given the amount of stuff that happens and the fact it's a Shizuru chapter and only Kiyohime knows what really goes on in that head of hers. Blergh.
Also, FYI, I went back and edited all the previous chapters. The biggest changes are in 7-9, mostly 9 cuz I hacked off and rewrote the ending.
