Things took longer than expected.
Wildly different experiences, but they kept in touch the entire time.


So, yeah. That was the most sick I’ve been since high school. Two weeks of solid brain pudding. I’m still feelin’ it, but it let up enough that today and yesterday wasn’t a total wash. Even getting this much done was difficult, but I should have a finished version up by the end of Wednesday. <3 Didn't want you all to be kept waiting. Gah, they're so cute. Ash's hair is huge! -=Updated with color! The idea in the comments about faded color was good, but ultimately I decided against it. They both started to develop entirely separate experiences from this, diverging paths of interest that otherwise would have been impossible. Ultimately, as much as the distance sucked, they were both enriched by the experience.
