When I Started: April 9, 2013

How I Lost My Shit:
In retrospect, starting a story about suicide and depression while experiencing clinical depression and working three jobs was probably not the brightest idea. And also, why the hell did I want this story to span a five year time period? That was overzealous. :) ANYWAY, after a move, getting better jobs, also getting medication, and staying on that medication, I was still able to keep writing and updating the story.

How I Finished My Shit:
Day after goddamn day. Finally wrote the last few pieces from April - June 2017.

How I Got Story Art:
Thanks to the Bang, my story art was created by the fabulous [archiveofourown.org profile] red_b_rackham, who provided me with the most GORGEOUS digital work ever ever ever.

Check it out on AO3!

She even did art for specific scenes!! And listened to all my nerdy requests without complaint. So thanks, Red, you're awesome. I'm so glad we got paired up!
