TransitionWithin a fanfiction, the point at which one scene ends and the next begins is a Transition. Transitioning between scenes is one of the most difficult parts of fic writing, because determining the point where a scene change takes place is so subjective. Ideally, transitions should be mini-cliffhangers - they should make the reader want to pick that element of the story back up at a later point. At the same time, a writer wants the other parts of the story to be interesting also and doesn't want the reader simply skimming the rest of the fic to find the continuation of the transition.
