Write Off :: Don’t Get Fooled Again

Write off (3)

I promised before I went away on holiday I’d be dragging up some of my old work from numerous backups, and today we stand with the smell of 2004 in our nostrils. In fact, the piece I’m going to post after this (and you’ll see why I’m not tagging it on the end, simply providing a link) was written between the 8th and 28th of April of that year. I was at the  time a fairly rabid CSI fan (I still love them, just don’t have time to do all the derivatives justice) and was particularly enamoured by the inaugural spin-off, set in Miami. It was the first time I’d felt confident enough to approach a stranger’s prompt challenge too (though there are fics that predate this, one of which I have already got lined up for next week.)

For now, cast yourself back to the first year of CSI: Miami, and then go lose yourself in eleven thousand words of fanfic. I was so organised back then I have the original .htm document saved to boot, with fanfic headers and everything. Boy, was it a different world a decade ago…

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
