I'm trying to do some clean house on my fanfic so I can focus on my AU wing series and finish up some original stuff. So, I decided to finish off the Bobby fic I've been whining about forever. I've wanted to quit this thing countless times, but meg_tdj wants it super bad - crazy woman that she is - so I have to finish it.
It's so friggin' hard. The entire thing is told from Bobby's pov. Not only that, but it's heavy on character interactions that haven't really been explored fully on the show. I have scenes with Bobby and John, who never had even ONE scene together on SPN. The brunt of the story deals with interactions between Sam and Bobby. They've had plenty of scenes on the show, but usually Dean is around, and they've done mostly the meaty stuff with Dean and Bobby, not quite as much with Sam and Bobby. There's also Castiel and Bobby, who have had some scenes together, but not many.
The story is a bout Dean, the Deangirl that I am, but he's basically mute for the story. So I can't use Dean to deflect any tension. ACK.
Some of it I am very proud of. Some of it I'm unsure about. And it's a little more on the schmoopy side than I normally write. So it's character driven and full of emotion and some questionable acts, and that inner voice in me is like, but when do we get to blow up monsters?
It won't be as tight as the SG-1 story Echoes of Autumn, but it was never meant to be a copy of that story anyway. I guess we'll see how it goes. It should be done by the end of the week. I think it's going to be the type of story people either love or hate.
