Note to self: I will finish part 14 tonight, I will, I will!

Ugh. I thought I could use my sick day to get some good writing in (have been waylaid by a pretty gross upper respiratory tract infection) but alas, no. I slept. I hate sleeping, it's a waste of time. But I'm awake now, and I'm going to finish this part tonight even if it leaves blisters on my fingers.

Then I'll get to responding to everyone's responses to part 13, so I can reassure you that it's nowhere near as bad as you think it is. ;)

Does that mean you're going to be posting part 14 tonight?

Posting? Unfortunately not. :( It's got to go to the betas first, especially since there's something in there that I'm not sure is going to work and I want to run it by a few eyes first before it hits the pages. It'll be all the better for it though, I promise. :)

*wraps hands around tea* Bless you. I've been chugging Throat Coat tea today like it's nobody's business.

I'm working, I'm working... :)

Hope you feel better soon, bless you trying to write when you're sick though. Seems a lot of people down here have something similar to what you described. Not fun at all!

I think 75% of the people I work with are sick. Sooooo not fun. It's the only free time I have though, so I've got to use it productively (instead of stalling and answering posts on lj...*cough* Yes, I'm a procrastinator. I'm forcing myself though, I need to finish, grrr...)

That's an awful tease, how I'm supposed to concentrate of my work today at all I don't know.

Still... good luck with the chapter and I hope you feel better.

You concentrate on your work and I'll concentrate on mine, you hear? Maybe that way we'll both make progress. :) Thanks for the well wishes!

*glomps and squishes* I never want to tackle you in your fic posts, and then I forget to send you an email, but DUDE I miss you! We need to chat or something and catch up sometime. :D

I MISS YOU TOO. And feel free whenever to tackle me in a fic post, you're more than welcome to. I'm often getting yelled at in them, so you'd be right at home ;)

But yes. We must chat or something! Don't know what else the something is, but we'll figure it out. :)

I shall be refreshing my e-mail feverishly and beta with lightening speed.

You so rock. :) I need to stop procrastinating, lol.

Hiya. I've been refreshing and refreshing and nothing is happening. Are you ok? I'm on the healing end of a sinus infection/head cold myself, so I know you probably don't feel up to much.

Is there anything that a beta could help with? (Please ignore the fact that I ended that sentence with a preposition.)

Extreme ickles about being sick. That's a very Doctorish reaction to sleep you've got there--please don't make yourself sicker just because you've got dozens of rabid fans sending you death threats, okay? Practically speaking, if you die then we never get the end of the story. ;) Seriously, get better soon. Hope they've got you on some good antibiotics.

I appreciate the well wishes and I won't make myself any sicker, I promise. :) They gave me a z-pak, which usually takes care of most ills. Darn strong stuff though. And I must, must, must finish the story. :)

If it gets to the point where I have to sleep, nothing will stop me. Not even two red bulls and two other energy drinks pounded back to back, I know this from experience. However, I have that reaction to sleep since before I even heard of the Doctor - apparently I was the only baby awake and looking around at my christening when I was three months old as compared to the rest of them, or so my mother says. She's not exactly unbiased, though.

Haha! Oh man, red bull brings back sooo many all-nighter memories. There's been many a time when it would have been much more convenient if I didn't have to sleep, so I get where you're coming from. I'm glad you're taking care of yourself and finishing 14 at the same time.

Ugh. I'm sorry you're sick. Being sick is such a waste of time. And so is sleeping, too! I hope you feel better soon!

"I can reassure you that it's nowhere near as bad as you think it is. ;)"

I don't believe you. I'm sure that it is.

Isn't it just a waste? I hate feeling like I have to slow down and rest (not that I'm not grateful for the day out of the nightmare of a job, but I'd like to be able to enjoy it). The meds will do their job, and I'll be back to health.

No, seriously, it won't be as bad. ;) Chapter 13's the last real cliffhanger in the story. Everything that happens after this won't have the sort of "oh god!" sort of moments that the past few chapters have had. So to me, that's not bad...
