You know...

I don't mind going to bed at 3am. I frequently do that when the Hubby's gone.

I do mind waking up at 3am and not being able to go back to sleep.

However, I have only myself to blame for this, as I went to Starbucks last night for my weekly meeting with my Writing Buddy...and forgot to order my Pumpkin Spice Latte in a frakking decaf. And caffeine has the odd effect of, when it wears off, waking me up. I know this, and I try to stop drinking the stuff around 4pm. Last night I had some cranial flatulence, and so here I sit.

On the plus side, I've gotten some writing done.

In fact, I cracked 20,000 words on the story just now.

Yay?

Not!Harry's not quite as broken as I thought he'd be. He may yet come out whole (or as whole as he gets) on the other side of this. Maybe.

Hmmm, yes.

I said earlier that it was possible that not!Harry wasn't as broken as I expected him to be.

I may have to revise this assessment. Because I forgot that this scene is not from his POV, and he just now, possibly, revealed more than he perhaps wanted to about just how fragile he is.

I love peeling back layers like this.

For anyone who's curious, I posted a snippet at difrancis's Snippet Saturday.

I am a very mean person.

So. I need to break not!Harry. Like, snap him right in half.

I think I have a way to do it. *tips hat to kurukami*

And now I have to decide just how much of this scene I should do in his POV.

Any of you feeling sorry for my characters yet?
