So I’ve written a whole lot of nothing concerning this series as of late because I’ve been focusing on other fandoms and Rt66 which is a mixed blessing. Mixed because I’d hoped to be at least halfway complete with Morning Glory and be three ficlets into the side-stories by now, but by not focusing solely on this series my muse has been free to stretch and play and now I’m itching to get back to it.
Is May over yet?
So far I have completed only three scenes for Morning Glory, but my brother, the dear man that he is, did get me Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s ‘Faust; Parts I and II’ (translated from German of course) for my birthday and yes, I’ve already read them. Though truth be told this particular version won’t work for my Faust because this story depicts him getting out of his pact with Mephistopheles (again, not the character I’m using) and being claimed by heaven. I liked the Part I better the Part II because it was darker and little more twisted, but the character of Gretchen, Faust’s love/infatuation, does interest me because she was as corrupt as he was so she might make it into the story.
The song currently playing on repeat as I plot is Lissie’s “Everywhere I Go” which apparently was featured in the finale episode of Dollhouse, but I never got past the second episode of that show so I wasn’t introduced to it until a few days ago. I think it works for Buffy’s mindset towards the middle of the story and Faith’s at the end and yes, this story will flip back and forth between Buffy’s plotline and Faith’s. Is it odd that I’ve already plotted Faith’s birthday weekend in this ‘verse?
