So I sat down to work on it this afternoon, and I was filled with glee, and...I realized something: It's set in Season 3, right? More specifically, it goes AU during "Fresh Blood" and involves vampire!Gordon, whom I found awesomely scary and cool. All well and good, right? Except that the lynch-pin concept of the story? Kind of requires that Dean's deal be a non-issue. And is, in fact, made impossible by the fact of Dean's deal. I was going to write a S3 fic that completely ignored the single most important source of plot arc in that season. *headdesk* And now I can't, because of canon! Boooo!
So this is me railing and whining because canon took away my weird AU bunny. Canon is so meeeean!! *rails impotently against it*
(Yes, I am very over-tired and inclined to be juvenile today, why do you ask?)
ETA: Wow, I'm even more incoherent than usual. I think I missed my 3:00 pm coffee hit. *goes to get more caffeine*
