I keep getting Sara/Sofia fic ideas when I'm at work and have no outlet for them, then when I get home, I suddenly have no motivation to get them down on paper or into a document or anything. At this point, work is barely conducive to dashing off a quick LiveJournal post, so how am I supposed to sneak time to write fic? I would really LOVE to be writing it too, I don't understand why the second I have time I have no urge to even touch it.

This is the first story idea I've had in MONTHS, and I didn't even have to go looking for it. Usually, there is a prompt with a deadline involved, and I have to spend a bunch of time doing word associations or looking through pictures before something will hit me. But this? It just came to me out of nowhere and seemed brilliant. So, why can't I get myself to write it?

A/N: Since this is posted on my own LJ I have no qualms about leaving a 5 minute speech as my author's note. Don't worry I won't do that. I've been working on this story for over a month now, and let me just say it's been one of the most arduous tasks I've ever undertaken, at least when it comes to writing. It's about twice as long as most of the other stories in the class and at this point, the professor would probably say it's unfinished. However, I can no longer bear to look at it, and I'm turning it in, in under 8 hours. A thank you to [ profile] mingsmommy for working with me on this in it's preliminary stages. You helped me get it into a format I could work with and I really appreciate that. Also, to [ profile] cutting_rm_flr who put up with all of my random questions and pestering about this story. You've been an invaluable asset in this process, and definitely helped me along the way. Finally, what I have here hasn't been betaed, but it's not FAR from what I've been turning into the class over the past 9 days or whatever. So, any mistakes are mine, and hopefully Snyder won't kill me for it.

Also (I know, this is getting way longer than I expected...) this story was inspired by a Jack Vettriano Painting, A Brave New World (study). I'm debating whether or not I should post this at [ profile] sexy_art considering this probably isn't what they have in mind, but I thought you all should get a look at the picture before you start reading, just so you know what I had in mind. I hope this doesn't suck, but if you read it (whether you enjoy it or not) would you please leave a review. I'm not 100% familiar with the location, and so if I flubbed stuff up with the Britishism I apologize. Snyder was on my back to make it more British, and I just hope it doesn't fall flat in that respect. If it's particularly scathing, you can email me at My f-list is filled with people whose opinions I highly value, and I would really appreciate your input here as well. Thank you. Now, on with the story.
