Chapter 26, you nearly ended me. I had about half a page written. I didn't like it, but I had so little time left. I showed it to A and she essentially said, yeah, pretty much sucks. In conversation with her I found where I wanted to go with it, and it took me four more attempts to get my feet under me and find the path through the chapter. So here's to A, without whom the chapter wouldn't have gotten written.
