Much of my work is inspired by other things, and DiS is no different. In fact, alongside the many Peter Pan references, the ending hides an inspiration from a fanfiction I was reading around that time. Oops. Blame the dream, not me!
Still, for the most part, this is based around a character a fair bit like me. Jodi Thompson is very easy to write. And DiS, as a whole, is the easiest story for me to write. It's relaxing, comfortable, and safe. Maybe that's why I've never let myself finish it? The farthest I've let myself get is perhaps a fourth of the way in. And that was during that first year. I've restarted with rewriting about 6 or 7 times, never even getting close to my farthest point.
