I think the last year has been... challenging... for a lot of people and I'm no exception. Writing, though interrupted, has been an escape. To round the year off, though, I'm posting a short (slightly over the 50Kb limit, sadly) story where it's the man in distress rather than a damsel. Hope you enjoy it. Oh, and have a great 2012; here's hoping and praying for some sense to break out.
