Ramble ramble... don't mind me.
I have a bit of free time tonight so I'd like to sit down and finally read the last chapter of Directions. And yet, I just can't make myself do it!
I think it's partially because it's been so long since I've read the rest of the fic and I honestly need to brush up because I don't remember what was going on. My memory is terrible for this sort of thing! But I hate picking up in the middle of things, which is why I don't watch the show as much either because if I sit down to watch I HAVE TO start at the beginning.
But mostly it's because it seems like an ending not only to the wonderful story Xie has given us, but to my fandom experience. As odd as it sounds, I sort of didn't mind waiting for it, because it always meant that I still had that to look forward to. I know there will be more good fic from Xie and others... but this one was a biggie. I guess I just hate endings of any sort!
ETA: Well I sucked it up and read it and of course it is fantastic :) Now I'll just have to focus on waiting for the next chapter of the skater fic!
