Glutton for punishment

So. My latest entry over at LAS. I ended up getting 2nd place, which I'm quite chuffed about, but now I find myself in a quandary. See, I wrote it rather open-ended. One of the requirements was for angst, and I thought it would be more angsty if I didn't actually resolve the problem separating Arthur and Gwen, just hinted that Arthur would do everything in his power to fix it. But even when I submitted it, I kept thinking, "You know, this would be a great idea for a longer fic."

Lo and behold, on my feedback for it, somebody commented that she felt like it was part of a larger story and was left a little unsatisfied by the ending.

So I find myself waffling about what to do. Part of me is really tempted to keep going with it, which would mean either using what I have as a prologue or expanding on it greatly so what occurs in that 1k or so gets put into probably...2 or 3 chapters, and then it would be a long, plotty fic after that. Another part of me thinks that is insane because I'm already working on my Big Bang (an ensemble time travel piece with Arthur/Gwen, Merlin/Gwaine, and Morgause being all badass), I'm working on a KMM that I'm probably going to start posting anonymously next week (not A/G), I have RL commitments to take care of (though the next deadline isn't until June 1), and I still have to write entries for LAS until I'm voted out and potentially the long challenge at ag_fics.

So, picking up another bunny now? Probably not very smart.

And yet... *sigh*

I'm a glutton for punishment. I should just let it stew.
