I just wanted to let you know that chapter 17 is back from all three betas and I plan to post it on the weekend, most likely late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, August 20th or 21st.
The next thing that will be posted after that will be the first chapter of Lunasariel's bad-Berk birthday fic, but I don't have a title for it yet. However, I promised I would post it before the end of August, so I don't want to leave it too long. I'll post that on the weekend of the 27th/28th unless things ease up at work and I can post mid week.
My sister took me out for lunch today and I had the most awesome spinach salad I have ever eaten. It had coconut in it! It was so spectacular that I blew seven bucks on a bottle of the restaurant's house-made mango dressing. (Now that I have tasted it at home, I know exactly how to duplicate it) There was a huge bowl of chocolate mousse for dessert. Not the instant kind that I make from a box, but the authentic, difficult-to-make kind which needs a double boiler. Halfway through it, I asked our helpful server for more whipped cream. Naturally I had to go to the gym tonight and attempt to burn off a fraction of that lovely lunch.
