Farewell: Somewhere Better

It is with a sad heart I bid farewell to Somewhere Better, that kind of bizarre Kings/SGA crossover. Took me about a year to write it. It tops out at about 58,000 words with nineteen chapters. That universe is not closed - I hope to write more adventures for AR-7 in the future - but this first part is finished. All good things must come to an end. Thanks to everyone who was along for the crazy ride.

Combined Update Post 27

Still plodding away at prompt-based universes although I am also working on longer fics for the [community profile] whatif_au challenge and other challenges, so updates are few and far between.
