Prompt #200

If you wish to do this as a spontaneous exercise, don't look at the word until you're ready to write (I recommend having Write or Die open in another tab). If you're going to mull over the word and write later, peek away.

Once you've completed your ficlet, please either comment here, or post a link to it, if you're posting on your own journal. Feel free to reference the community or number of the prompt in your outside posts, but if you use the actual word, please put it under a cut to avoid spoiling others, should they want to write spontaneously.

Today's word is: milestone

milestone [mahyl-stohn]

noun
1. a stone functioning as a milepost.
2. a significant event or stage in the life, progress, development, or the like of a person, nation, etc.: Her getting the job of supervisor was a milestone in her career.

If you've missed a word or twelve and would like to catch up, please see the Master List.

Title: The Time-Traveler's Kismesis: Counterthesis
Fandom: Homestuck
Word Count: 825
Summary: Shortly after the Dolorosa flees the brooding caverns with the Signless, she meets the Demoness for the second time... at least from her perspective.

The Demoness is waiting at the crossroads. You don't slow down. You can't afford to waste time, and it would be foolish to show fear. But you wrap the grub more firmly in your spare skirt as you approach.
