FIC: After Hours
QUESTION: “Were there any major decisions I made about the fic that could have made it go a whole different direction?”
Oh god yes, haha. The nature of their entire relationship is so taboo and controversial in this story that there were what felt like a million ways I could’ve made things happen that could’ve destroyed what they had, or at least put it in major jeopardy. The biggest one, obviously, would’ve been making the decision for them to get caught, which I’ve been open about deciding not to do. I think the second biggest fork in the road was deciding whether Steve would stick to his guns when he broke up with Bucky, or feel he made a mistake and retract what he’d said. (Obviously we know which option I went with in the end lol)
QUESTION: “If I were to rewrite this fic, what would I change?”
At this point in time, I’m going to say that I wouldn’t change anything. The way their relationship has unfolded is exactly the way I wanted it to, and for this particular story, where I want it to head feels, to me, exactly how it should happen for them. Speaking hypothetically, though, if I were to rewrite the entire story fro scratch, I’d keep the first eight chapters the same, and then maybe take it down that alternate path where they did eventually get caught before they were ready, just to see how much things would’ve been different for them.
