I posted my second oldschoolfic story to fkfic-l this weekend. A few scenes have been rewritten since the ficathon, but it's largely the same. I'm grateful to abby82 for the ficathon prompt! And I'm obliged to my beta-readers (see the story's endnote, as always).
"Fearful Symmetry" is entirely from Nick's perspective. I don't often narrate from Nick's point of view, and that's curious to me. I've been wondering from where that comes (among what the series presents, what I'm any good at writing, and what people seem to like to read).
