Crossed the finish line!
50,075 words according to MS Word (50,124 according to the validator on the Nano site, but whatever, it's over 50k either way).

I really like this story, and I enjoy Nano (wouldn't bother otherwise), but it will be nice to not have that "must write X amount before bed" feeling hanging on. Now I can really turn my attention to some other things that I have been neglecting!
