RIHC6v2 is speeding up to hit the finale, finally. A month ago I wrote what I thought would be the ending, but that's in the trash -- and for the better. It would have taken another two chapters to set up and then come across as gratuitous. Now -- the ending's still going to be rather gratuitous but it fits in better with Antony's mindset and situation. Can't say anything more; it'll spoil the surprise.
Okay -- my car's ready at the shop. Had it checked out for the drive, changed the oil, all that. And I washed it, yesterday, even though I knew it'd drizzle today. Buddy looks so clean and fresh, he's almost new.
Maybe more later.
