The original piece I wasn't happy with, and when my editor got hold of it she wasn't either. The flow was off, and I think it was because I was rushing Micah and Allyson too much, crowding in too many plot twists and not giving them time to grow.
This was an intense piece to write, a lot of deep emotion that had nothing to do with horniness. :D If you read Deeper than the story left off with Allyson's father threatening to arrest Micah. Too Deep deals a lot with this and takes Micah and Lyssie's relationship in new directions. When I finished it originally I was so discouraged. The story was "done" but I didn't want it to be, it was so fast and full it didn't work.
They are such strong characters they need more time to play with each other! So I rewrote it and I hope that you all enjoy it now as much as I do.
PS. Yes this song's melancholy feel fits in beautifully with this story. I chose it because there are a lot of similarities, the sense of waiting and aching for someone.
