I haz minimum wordage!  
Phew! I finally cracked the dreaded 25K for my mininano. YAY.

Now to put it in some sort of readable fashion before the deadline tomorrow. (a.ka. add more words since I have part of the ending taking up some of that minimum, and not the middle.)

It is not, shall we say, a masterwork of literature. :)

This is the crack, right? Crack is not for masterpieces, it is for shameless self-indulgence. ;-P Bring it on!

(Also, congrats on finishing! Go Team Basestar!)

It's wing!fic, which is, I think, by definition crack. But at the same time, I tend to think of crack as silly. Which this isn't. So.. I guess? :)

But yes, Team Basestar is definitely exerting our CYLON MIGHT. We should probably not tell the pesty humans about the many copies of each of us. They might think it's cheating or whatever, when it's simply our nature! *nods*

Actually, the best crack takes itself seriously...like half of the Cylon stories on BSG, y'know? ;-) It can be ridiculous if viewed objectively, but if you don't acknowledge it in-text, somehow it works. Wing!fic is like that, I think.

My model votes for not bothering the humans with the moral dilemma. *nods* Well, most of us.

pfft. Mine wasn't even ALL IN ORDER because I wasn't keeping track of it and writing non-linear scenes.

well, mine is all in order at least. Please watch out for the giant gaping CHASMS of plot, however. :)
