Thank you!
@JediAthos--some of the chapters evolved as I wrote them, others I had a definite endpoint in mind. When I was writing the Sith Lord battle, for instance, I thought I knew where I wanted to go, and in some respects it was governed by the vision, but right in the middle of it, it took a right turn down the dark side path, and I just followed it along. Sometimes an idea will hit you as you write, so I say just start writing whatever. If you don't like it, you can always hit the delete key. I've dumped 2 or 3 entire chapters in this story, a number of paragraphs, and countless lines just because they didn't work well or fit the story right or were just plain stupid.

Of _course_ we care about it!!! Now get back to work!!
Seriously, do what you gotta do, but I guarantee you everyone who's been reading it wants to see you finish it.
And I'll mull over some of the ideas that have been floating around in my head today and perhaps put something together, but it'll be awhile yet. I want to get as much of the revision done as I can before tackling another entire story.

Thanks again, everyone!!

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
