Option A, tentatively entitled Until Someone Tears It Off, is an Amanda/Sarek piece for that WNW prompt I whined about no one filling. It's about Amanda angsting over buying a cheap, sexy dress because she knows Sarek may not understand, and she is *tired* of explaining strange human impulses. It will be between 1500-2000 words, and I don't think it needs major overhauls. I just need to know if it makes sense. I'd like to get it back soonish since I want to post it to the latest drabble fest before everyone forgets it exists.
Option B, tentatively entitled Just Like a Waving Flag, is the the mostly-gen Sulu backstory I've been working on since November. It features brief Gaila/Sulu at the beginning and end (which you may end up telling me to get rid of), and it's about Sulu growing up on a smuggling ship with a father who has enough of a conscience to try to help an Orion slave girl get to safety. It's around 5,000 words and needs help with the ending, which is way minimal, but I don't know what to expand. This piece is not time sensitive.
Also, a poll! I have been wondering for a long time what to do about titles I get from song lyrics that might not be clear to others, and also whether it's weird to revise my stories long after posting them. Please excuse the typos in the poll - it's supposed to say "story" in a couple places instead of "stor."
If you the title of a piece only makes sense the author, should she explain it in the notes?
Do you ever revise a story after you post it?
Assuming that a stor is not offensive, is it *weird* to overhaul it months after posting it?
If you made serious revisions to a piece you posted several months ago, what would you do with it?
