to shutting this whole story down and transporting Elspeth to the Marvel Universe just days after the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier for some wish-fulfillment, Mary Sue fangirl fun. I won’t say why, because I don’t want to spoil the movie for anyone who hasn’t seen it.
I will say that at this point writing for the Marvelverse (my knowledge of which comes only from the movies and Wikipedia) seems far less daunting than this chapter. I finished a draft in time to make Professors Melzer and Pyrelle’s deadlines, but as I try to edit them I keep running into things that just don’t work. Tonight I decided to comb through the entire thing and I wrote out an outline that I think works better. We’ll see.
