Third Wheel gift fic update (trans: minor freak out)

So, after a nearly 2 year hiatus, I'm getting back into a gift SPN fic I was almost finished (like 1 or 2 chapters from done). I reread it, to reacquaint myself with it, and to reclaim the "feel" (while finding a multitude of grammatical errors that I now won't inflict on my betas).However, I've also discovered a problem.

It's not a huge problem--I don't have to scrap the whole thing and start over--but it's significant.

Initially, I'd planned on a BIG FINISH, I staged certain events to build up to that finish, but I no longer like that finish. It was flashy, impressive... and impersonal, and the story is all sorts of personal.

I think I many have to reorganize events in the last 3 or 4 chapters, which will mean going back even further to tweak other events so that my timeline doesn't get totally messed.

GRRR!  Phaw!  *whimper*

Oh well. The recipient has waited this long. Another couple months can't be that unexpected.

(on a side note, I'm about three quarters through the second re-write of The Wounded. It's going a lot easier than Third Wheel.)
