I painfully dragged a scene-ish-thing out of myself today, and it was painful. Then I looked at it, and decided that it would strain credibility TOO much, even for the very elastic bounds I've set up, for the people to get out of there alive, must less non-captured. So I had to delete most of it and re-write.
Which was painful, but feels so much better now that it's done! That's the first time I've done that, I think, so I'm newly impressed with how much like lancing a boil that is. Get all the nasty gone, and rewrite! ^_^
