It makes sense at the REC. I didn’t want to talk about work, since it was perfectly fine and blah blah blah, but I had all of these great thoughts just pfffffff in a headache. I wish people wouldn’t translate addresses into their native language. While I would be the last person to demand anyone learn English, it would be extremely helpful if people would just write Magyarország or Hungary instead of Ungern or Macaristan, or even Hwngari. Italy does it the most, but at least I have a working knowledge of the language. Having to translate from whatever language just pops up is a bit distracting, if in general fun.
Happens the most with Switzerland and Sweden, for some reason.
Oh yes, and when you send a letter to 1522 Center St in Michigan, writing 1522 Rue de Centre will not get it where you want it to go. Just saying. Linking to my point about not translating addresses. Much as I love seeing the word ‘cedex’ everywhere.
Anyway. I think I only have two chapters left of BT. Part 3 was only planned to have a maximum of six chapters, and looking at it without having written anything at work (read Beowulf and prepped most of a 3971 form instead), I think that it’s only going to end up having four. Trevor is done. The rest of what has to do with him can be told by Ianto, and possible even should be. Things are not meant to wrap up totally, it’s just what’s going on in the city.
Gabe will be done after this current chapter. He and Freddie have cemented themselves as family, and all he has to do is work out that he has other things to work out. The only question mark left to Gabe is Kellie. And she’s not there. So either he has to just figure out what he feels, or that’ll be something he has roiling in his head after.
Ianto has his promise to Sebastian to fulfill, which Sebastian is actually working on, with Gabe. He also has to take care of Morgan, and technically, he has his own side of the romantic entanglement to come to terms with. Bweh. Dangling participle. Moving on. They’ve got the rest of the…yeah, this is all a-ramble. Next time I start writing something, I’m gonna chronicle it.
Soon as this is done though, I’m going to print out the first few chapters of TWOTW and start editing. It’s been about… a month ago as of yesterday that I finished the first (rough?) draft. So by next week, I should be done with BT and editing t’other. I need to figure out if I’m just going to read it through and make light notes, and then start a new document and rewrite, or if I’ll dig right into a printed copy with a serious red pen and…still start a new document and rewrite.
I’m excited, I’m just tired as well. It’s the end of the week, and that always catches me by surprise. XD
There are other things on my mind as well, but they don’t feel overwhelming anymore. I just needed to sit in the Total Perspective Vortex for a day or two, keeping company with my thoughts. And yesterday there was a wonderful conversation that pulled me out of the TPV in the best way. Balance is obtainable, but it’s also fun to just tip with someone.
