So I've had a horrible week. I've broken two computers, I put in a grant at 11:58pm the day it was due, and I'm low on sleep (yes, partially because of the HP premiere, but that's one bright spot in a really crappy week). The one paragraph I wrote of this is about as much as is ever going to get written.

When John was twelve, he found out he was adopted. He doesn’t even think his mom noticed; she was flipping through the important documents they kept in the safe and John saw a folder labeled John’s adoption papers. It explained so much.

Where this was going: John is Mama Petrelli's kid. I don't know if he's canonically older than Nathan, but I'd make him so. There were nice linkups to the situation with Nathan and Claire and I was planning on making the ATA gene the same as the gene that gives the Heroes their powers. (Part of the reason I gave it up is that this feels like it's been done to death.) I have no idea what power I'd give John. Maybe charm, a little like Matt's mind powers, but very specific (or maybe he just never realized what they are, and so, never developed them?).

In the end it was going to be story about family, families by blood, by culture, by choice, and the intersections of all these, and what it means about who you are. I'm just too wrung out to actually write this story (and too far behind on Heroes, tbh).
