That's...exactly what it is, actually. The thing closely mirrors my own noir plotline (I mean what was always intended to happen, in my mind, including events that I wasn't able to pursue in the noir. Also excluding things I didn't want to happen, obviously, and excluding unnecessary things...) When NaNo started, I was like, "What do I want to write about?" and at the time that's what I wanted to do. They're um...fairly far-removed, at this point, I think. It was a cool experience--on the one hand I had a lot more freedom than in the noir, and on the other hand I had nobody to get cues from.
Might be a weird reading experience for people who know the noir, though. idk, ask Elifolk and Claudiafolk

I didn't think of that. That could work, maybe :]
