*whimper*

I had better be able to stop staring at this big_bang_hd fic and trying to make sure that everything is neatly tied up. I had better be able to stop doing this soon. x_x It doesn't help that it's grown to 70K words since the first draft. :S goneril, imadra_blue, pikacharma and much_reality deserve medals of honour for holding my hand and petting me these past few days. Oh, and extra special thanks to Серега - Рыжий (Redhead) because it's pretty much the only thing keeping me sane atm.

Anyway. A poll! :D
