I finished my [livejournal.com profile] sgareversebang fic, friends! And what a battle it was, too.

It all started with art by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] velocitygrass. Isn't this gorgeous?



This beautiful art gave me a great fic idea. I was super stoked about it. But it was early days and I had other challenge fics to finish up first. Unfortunately, when it came time to actually buckle down and get moving...nope. No words for this story at all. Panic mode!

My muse, it seemed, was preoccupied with continuing the story I told in Cruisin'. Seriously preoccupied. So I consulted with my writing guru, [livejournal.com profile] nagi_schwarz and she agreed that story would also match very well with the artwork. True fact: both stories involved our boys being soulmates, and charting their lives through the years.

I'm not completely abandoning my original idea, because if the words show up it'll still be cool. But I had a great time writing When the Time is Right. I did a ton of historical research, watched a hundred or so YouTube videos, and tried to remember how to use Photoshop Elements so I could throw some artwork in there. And, because I have zero personal management skills, I did this all in a month. (Please don't ask how many months I had to work on this. Suffice to say it was more than one.)

This was definitely a labor of love. If you want to check it out here's what you need to know:
