I've just sent it to be beta'ed. (Sorry, leaves_girl, it won't be ready for your birthday tomorrow).
I'm not entirely happy with the ending scene, but overall I think it's good. I haven't actually read the whole thing in one go, however, so my perception may be a leeeetle faulty.
Still, it's done!
One more story off my 'to-do' list. (I also finished my 1-hour TV pilot script, and it's being read by an agent right now.) Next up, my feature film, and the extra-long gift fic that's long overdue!
