Woo, it’s done!  I was kind of starting to think it would never be finished, but here it is.  All 24 chapters of it.  The last two will be posted very shortly.

So, there’s a lot going on over those last few chapters, and I didn’t do individual notes for them, because I kind of just wanted to get everything up as quickly as possible.

I’m not 100% sure about the ending, and part of that is because of how I set up the relationship.  It’s… well, not the best relationship, if I’m honest.  It’s the kind of fic that I’d normally start around right here, and then go into all the ways in which Darcy has terrible taste in men.  I was saying at some point before that it has the potential to go one of two ways, with either Loki coming to really resent Darcy for being the breadwinner, or coming to take absolute advantage of that.  But it’s not that kind of fic, so have a happily-for-now ending.  I was bound to write one eventually.

Another thing I’ve joked about in the past is how, if not for Jane, Darcy and Loki would have been fucking by about chapter six.  The scene with the lotion was totally going to end in sex if Jane didn’t step in when she did.  I kind of wanted to bring that back, just because the image amuses me.

There’s a lot from the books in these last few chapters, and I actually kind of struggled to not include Hammond’s death as one of those details.  There was a brief moment, when Darcy’s going through her spooky packet, where I almost wanted to put that in there, but ultimately decided not to.  But raptor bites making people bug-nut delirious was something that I felt was sorely lacking from the movie.  I also wasn’t sure how to handle Malcolm’s retconning, so I just totally glossed over everything in the end.

Who sent the pack?  I’m actually not sure.  Definitely someone who worked for InGen, and probably in Mission Control at the park.  But it was actually one of the first details I outlined, because I like that sort of spooky element.  

For the wrap-up: I don’t think Thor and Loki ever do reconcile.  And I do think this is going to affect everything else in the long-term.  Darcy and Jane are going to stubbornly pretend that the men in their lives don’t fucking hate each other, but it’s always going to be there. I think Darcy’s pretty happy where she is in her career, and don’t really see her persuing any actual reporting position.  Loki’s snakes are a wildcard.  Darcy went from cautiously curious to hating them, which is a problem, but an understandable one, I think.  She might be able to come round, and she might not.  I’m not sure.  We’ll see, I guess.  It’ll probably come down to her frame of mind when she finds the huge bag of frozen mice in the freezer.
