You know the feeling when you get a cute, funny idea for a short story which just flows, and you type it all up and finish, copy and paste into a relevant box, hit send, and watch the kudos roll in, while you cheerfully move on and start to work on all your other project and exams?

Yeah, me neither. It began with this post right here. If you frequent XMFC-related Tumblrs you've probably seen it fifty-seven times. So I had the cute idea, I typed it up in its 1.2k glory, pasted it into Tumblr reblog box, hit send, then continued typing for no apparent reason. I'm now sitting on over 6k of a depressing Beauty and the Beast retelling in which almost everything that can go wrong goes wrong, but Erik is a sad, ineffectual stalker whose addiction everyone indulges out of fondness, and its innate hilarity.

It's also threatening to become an 18th century procedural, in which the murderer stalks the halls while the heroes attempt to escape with their lives, except the more I think about it the more sympathy I have for the murderer and his tragedy, and gaaargh, why is writing so hard?
