thank you @tebakutis, and everyone! I'm really proud, despite the fact that months of interval make me feel like this is a poorer work than I remember. Progress, in short! It feels so much more legitimate now!  :-[

Hey @xiagan, can you also ask for someone to "advertise" it with a twitter on the main Fantasy-Faction account?
The latest ones didn't have anything...

(we're really demanding, aren't we? ;D)

I was going to say @Mr.J was also off the ball on the FF Writing Contest aacount ;) but I noticed he just tweeted about the Corpses theme - too bad the pinned one still mentions pirates :P

Ha, I Twitter-failed while trying to post this. I had logged into my account previously, and *thought* I'd correctly logged out and logged into the contest Twitter, but then I ended up posting it from my own feed by accident. Ha! Deleted. It's on the proper feed now.

But @m3mnoch, you'll probably see a phantom mention from me :0

ha!  no worries!

that's one of the reasons i was sure that i could in no way run an extra twitter account.  i'd mess that up constantly.  you're doing a great job at it, tho!
