So, I was working on a totally new story for this week, and it may have gotten away from me. At first, I was pretty pissed, because I promised myself that there was going to be a story a week, come hell or high water. Then I remembered that I had an absolute fuck ton of old works that I’d never really gotten around to sharing with anyone.
Grudge Match is one of those. I wrote it years ago, back in 2009, and it was meant to be part of something bigger. The bigger part is still only half-formed, but this was a boring fucking origin story, so it stands on its own pretty well. Surprisingly, at least to me, is that it didn’t have a lot of shitty, problematic language in it, so the rewrite was really quick. I don’t know, I guess I just figured I was less conscientious of language use five years ago.
That actually feels kind of nice.
Be aware, there is all kinds of TRIGGERING stuff in the story. I’ve listed the triggers that feel most appropriate at the top of the story, but if I’ve missed any, please let me know here.
Anyway, it’ll be posting at midnight, PST. I hope you enjoy it.
