YMMV / The Great Desert

  • Old Shame - Partial example: Shadsie, who did most of the translation of back-and-forth ideas into written chapter form has cited on her fanfiction.net page and elsewhere that she considers the story to have numerous flaws. Her view is mixed as she's stated having enjoyed writing the fic and experimenting with many of the ideas within it, but considers some of the execution poor. She started a re-write titled "The Greater Desert," but subsequently abandoned the effort.
