2016 has been a trying year, in more ways than one, and we all deserve that time-out-of-time perfect moment ♥

I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday, whatever version of it that you celebrate (even if it's merely getting through the day).

"Don't go pulling a Philip Kiriakis on me, all right?"

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about why I so immensely dislike the Jan’s baby storyline that defines Shelle’s senior year of high school – especially since the plot and relationship angst are quite similar to those at the heart of my IY fandom opus, Fleeting. They share similar characteristics: the girl’s sexual insecurity, the guy’s seemingly-noble secret-keeping, and the betrayal and angst that occur when they start to push each other.

So why is one so near and dear to my heart, while the other makes my heart hurt?

This piece is several experiments rolled into one: it's in the style of [ profile] 5_times, it's written completely in present tense, and it's a total remix of scenes that -actually- occurred in canon. Think of it as the textual equivalent of a fanvid, aheh. It was a different sort of challenge to meet, but definitely a fun one.
