OK, I can do it around 6 my time :)
The voting thread will only be done Monday, though.
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

Thank you, Bea!

My story is out there. I kind of maybe edited it after your 6 PM, though. Please don't disqualify me.  :)

I really would have liked to have used more time writing my story, but the damn holidays got in the way.  :P (I'm not sure about that sentence, but I don't have the energy to care.  ::) )

What about @Raptori and @Saurus? Any update on your story?  :-\
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

We decided not to bother, since neither of us really liked our story much...  :-\

We could post what we've got in the critiques forum so you can see how bad it is if you want. Maybe then you'd feel less sad that we didn't enter.  :P

Do it.  8)

I mean, surely it can't be worse than mine.  ;D

I think an illustrated story about the meeting of @Raptori and @Saurus would have swept Young Love.

No chance - your stories are usually pretty good, and our one is even worse usual.  ;)

Maybe, though I doubt we'd have been able to pull it off. Besides, wouldn't illustrations be cheating?  :P

And they could be cats. Maybe they are cats. Intelligent, bookaholic cats using the internet and making fun of us humans. Plot twist.
Slow and steady wins the race.
