Success at last!  
So, I finished the chapter one rewrite yesterday. FINALLY. Good God, that was the most painful writing experience of my life, I'm pretty sure. Me + beginnings = angst and pain!

However. It has since received beta approval, and now the next chapter is flowing beautifully. Reaper is finally getting to tell some of this from his side, which is something I realized I was too afraid to do in draft one. Switching POVs has never been a problem for me. Dark Vision was told from both Elysia and Parr's POVs, for example. But Reaper is a different sort of character. Especially at the beginning of Nemesis, when he hasn't really formed a connection with Mercy. He's a borderline sociopath, and those don't make for characters readers can connect to easily, or so I believed. Part of me was afraid they'd go *HORROR* how can Mercy be attracted to this guy?? Sure, he's hot, but he's also a cold killer!


Yeah, so thinks the woman who has long running and deep love for characters like Michael of La Femme Nikita and Sark (who, admittedly, is more feeling than Michael) of Alias.

I know, I know. The stupid, it hurts.

So, Reaper gets a viewpoint, as well as a couple of others. Cannon, for example. I'm liking it so far. :D

Ooooh, word count meter!


Although it's looking more like it's going to be rewrite:

Just with (hopefully) less wholesale rewriting of the last three quarters.
