I am wearing my pouting face...

Quick question guys.

What do you do if you’ve been working for a few months on a fic with a certain conceit you haven’t seen before, (but may very well already exist), and as you’re working on it someone else writes a new fic with that very conceit?

See, I? Automatically feel like a big fat failure who can’t now finish the fic, even though I loved the idea.

Am I being crazy?

I’ve always been one who says that originality in fiction is overrated. I say that, but don’t always mean it. Not when it comes to my own writing.

I hate it when this happens.
