By this time in the year, I've usually written and posted several stories. This year ... I have nothing to show for the last four months. You'd think that with all the time I now have at my disposal that I'd be able to do lots of writing. Unfortunately, the psychological toll of having left my job has said otherwise.

In trying to kick any kind of motivation back into being, I've continued to sign up for exchanges (and, so far, have met the deadlines, if just barely). First up: [livejournal.com profile] shipswap.

My gift this year was:

Our Highlight Reel's All Outtakes - 5.6K - Teen Wolf - Bobby/Melissa

I've been asking for Bobby/Melissa as my crack pairing for as long as there's been Teen Wolf. Finally, someone came through! The story is overall melancholy as it shows the progression of how Bobby and Melissa became a couple, with some beautiful character analysis of how they got to their places in life and what they're going to do next. There are also some excellent touches of humor in the responses from Scott and Isaac toward this development. I haven't laughed out loud so much while reading a story in a very long time. My only regret is that there aren't going to be tons of sequels because Melissa and Bobby really do play off each other well.
