Slight detour

After much deliberation and head banging against desk, I have decided that the scene I'm working on does not work. I cannot write Vinnie and Charley's date distengrating.

I don't think it has anything to do with me being a Throttle and Charley 'shipper, because there's another story lurking in my notes where the Vinnie and Charley pairing works out. And when I look at the later scenes--Vinnie discussing it with Modo and Charley discussing it with Throttle--they are hysterical and sympathetic in my head; something I'm not feeling about the current scene.

I feel bad about it though. One of the reasons I was including it is because I felt I short-changed readers in the Wars Are Won series. True, nobody's complained with a "you should show Charley and Vinnie break-up!" so I guess I'm just feeling sensitive for no reason. But on the other hand, funny lines from Modo. :) And now that I've made this decision, I can work on it again.
