I Like It Here - A Learren Drabble
i tried to sleep and couldn’t because i had a plot bunny hopping so adamantly that i had to write it down. mind you, it’s the middle of the night and unbeta’d but i still think it’s one of the best things i’ve ever written.
it’s not a spectacularly dramatic plot..but i’d like you to give it a chance and an open mind and please do get back to me if you have any ideas or impressions or yeah, just any kind of feedback. because that makes me very very happy.
