Plus, it's so much fun to start en medias res, right in the middle of an unlikely situation, and work backwards to find how they get there. The next story I write, though, will be told in chronological order... if only because that's how it's decided to form itself in my head.
It's definitely funny when it happens and a character changes so much from an intended concept Really looking forward to reading your next story, I'm trying to let some ideas percolate and see what comes out ^_^

The really funny thing, is that I never even registered it as a deliberate hairstyle, I just thought she was a lady who was supposed to be bald (and the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen )
