When I Started: The idea for this fic came almost a decade ago when I saw the CM episode where JJ's kid was born and Derek held him and I went, "awwwww." And I started daydreaming kidfic ideas. Which tripped and fell into a vat of SG plot bunnies (a common occurence, back then, and even now, given how much I love SG1) and the whole amalgamation has been floating around the backbrain ever since. I have no idea when I actually started writing it, but it turned almost immediately from the fun kidfic I had planned into a casefic. And there it stalled, because I am not good at writing casefic. I mean, I'd noodle away at it occasionally (even long after I stopped actively watching CM), but nothing came of it. (I work much better with deadlines.)
How I Lost My Shit: big bunny, no deadline to make me concentrate on it, too many other bunnies distracting me.
How I Finished My Shit:Then came WIP Big Bang, and I considered what WIP I might try to finish, and this was the one I had been noodling away at most recently, so I figured, what the heck. It was something like 10k words at the time? IDEK. I thought it might, maybe, take another 10k words. And then I started seriously writing it. And then, as I was wondering how the heck to join the kidfic bit with the casefic bit, I did some wikisurfing and found out that Derek has gotten married and had a kid in the meantime! Which I love, and was able to use to great thematic effect. Thank you, CM writers, for having Derek settle down with a wonderful woman, and thank you, Shemar Moore, for suggesting it. It was very useful to this fic.
