It's coming very soon. I need to finish a chapter today, but I think it will last probably one more chapter to close it out. I've been on this fanfic since June 2012 (I think)...and I loved it all the way. I guess the 30-40+ chapter fanfic is my niche...whatever I do, that's how long they seem to be. And I'm busy so only 1 chapter a week is really do-able.
That being said, I thought to myself, "I'm going to take a break...watch some anime, read some manga. I have no real new plot bunnies in any universe really pushing me to write more right now." And then what always happens, happened. I think I know what I want my next fanfic to be. It's kind a continuation of Repatriation, but not really. I love romance and shipping and pairings....and in Repatriation, there have been quite a few pair ups already. How about fast forwarding it about 10 or so years to where the leaders and teachers of the village (in the Naruto world) are Naruto and his peers and their kids are the ones at the academy.
It's probably been done before. It's hard to come up with something completely new. But I haven't read any that have really peaked my interest yet. Perhaps I can make one? Hmmm......
Let's see how long a break I can take before I am compelled to start writing the next one.
