Well, folks, after a long and tenuous process, I got my laptop back from the repair guy. There was nothing he could do to save it. And all the drafts for the next couple of chapters of Star Wars: Forbidden are on that hard drive, as well as numerous other projects of mine, some Minecraft worlds, and a couple of Skyrim characters that I wanted to keep. My last hope is to get my hands on a 2.5" hard drive enclosure and make an effort to get all the files off. But that won't happen until at least a week from this coming Thursday, since that's payday and I currently don't have any money. Since the next chapter is the length of a small novel, I would rather not rewrite it. But if I must, then I will.
