It's finished, at the point where I've printed it out for editing. I've finished one edit-through, now my next step is to re-read the last few Lily-centric chapters of the story to make sure that this chapter fits fluidly with the rest (necessary since my moods tend to change how I write, and the time-lapse between writing chapters doesn't help consistency, heh). I'll input final changes into the document and then let the chapter sit for one night to make sure I'm satisfied with it. Then it'll be up. :)
