Then, while still hunting for the story in question, I tumbled across a goldmine of old Torn World stuff, and got lost for an hour reading through them. There's... a lot of good stuff here, and much more of the north-south meeting has been written than I was fearing. Glee!
And then, FINALLY, I found the story I'd been hunting for. :P
Hamburger for lunch, and a cold root beer. Flour ground, bread rising, laundry ready to hang.
I've got some coding and design work lined up (YAY) to work on this week, and many plans for my own sites. I think I have lost my writing time to organizing, so I'd best get to that.
