Really, I've only managed to get no further than that during a month's time since only one of its weeks actually went to writing on it. I've got an old one with about 6 or 7 k, which I wrote on first, but that one was started when this contest was first announced way back when (the "contest time" post), and thus it didn't really keep up to the standards I keep today. Mostly I wrote spontaneously, though; didn't have the fic's story mapped out before I started writing it. Really, only the very beginning existed in my mind, and that was since I had written something similar (which just disappeared, and was really short) a while back. What really eats away the time is (as per usual) writing dialogue.
If you want, though, I can send you the fic I've got so far, in case you want to have a look. Just don't steal or plagiarize it, though I believe that goes without saying. If you're interested, PM me - I suspect we'll be dragging off-topic here otherwise
