I've reached a point where it'd be ridiculous to give up and go to sleep now. After all, it's only 3:30 in the morning and there are but two scenes left to write. (But I'm just tired enough that it seems like a good idea to say something like "Onward!" right about now. But still awake enough to censor myself.)
