I was telling my friend [livejournal.com profile] castalie that I had cleaned out the passenger side of my car. I have a bad habit of tossing my newspapers and magazines in the footwell, to be picked up 'later'. As I told Castalie, the bottom of the pile was over a YEAR old! She said, "It actually made me think of Jim and Blair. Dunno why. Or, no, I know why, must be the idea of anal!Jim chiding Blair for never putting things away when he's supposed to and stuff like that." My muse perked up her ears and said, "Ooh! There's a story in there!" It seemed to fit the 200th-'challenge' anniversary at [livejournal.com profile] sentinel_thurs. I used Google to locate some 'big event' that happened about 200 years ago, and the story grew from there. A little tweaking ensured that the word-count was exactly 200, which was the goal of the exercise.
