Well, that's that!

I did my best, pushed hard as hell, but failed the BB this year. I might go ahead and finish it, but I failed to gain the word count. I'm really sad, because I wanted to be part of this, but I guess I'll just be cheering on the sidelines this year. Does the fandom really need another amnesia fic, anyway?

Godspeed and good luck to all of you who made it to the finish line--I'm so proud of you! I look forward to reading your stories, guys! Much love! ♥

I'm sorry, Roxy.

You could serial post it--keep us hanging week to week, or however many days apart you post chapters.

I've made that decision, and it's a hard one. Get some rest. I still want to read *your* amnesia fic!

*HUG*

Thank you! I'm going to finish and post because I was jus too damn close not to. I knew all along I was swimming against the tide but I hoped it would work. :(

I was short by a little over 400 words. I considerd just pasting a chunl of lorem ipsum in the middle... :D

You will see gardner Dean, probably more than you want to. ;D

Ah, babe, I know how disappointing it is not to make the deadline (believe me, I know), but don't second guess your story because of it! Fandom ALWAYS needs another amnesia fic*!! Now you can finish it on your own time and, as for the challenge, there's always NEXT YEAR! ♥

I'm telling myself that--I'm going to believe in that! I have dropped out before but this time really, I don't know--kinda hurt. At least now, I can make it what I wanted it to be and not feel rushed.

THANK YOU!! ♥ ♥



This is my heart, beating with love...no, really, it is.

So sorry. Especially since YOU really wanted to make it. :( *hugs* Hey, who DOESN'T want another amnesia fic?

*clings* I did, I really did. At least there's lots of support for an amnesia fic! That makes me happy. Heck, now I have time, I might even work up a little art for it, who knows. Retired lady that I am! ;D

Oh no, that's sad, Roxy. But to answer your question, Hell Yes! We need another amnesia fic!

I've done it for so many years that I feel kind of lost at the moment, but I just have to view it as an opportunity, I guess. :)

And I'm so glad that everyone'd ready for another amnesia fic, lol!

I'm sorry to hear it. I didn't make it either, but I wasn't as close as you were. I got to about 14k and I was so annoyed with last week's ep I made the conscious choice to give up. I needed to take a break after that mess.

But amnesia is my favorite trope, so I do hope you continue it and post it sometime. Sometimes it's easier without the deadline hanging over you, but you always have the option of sitting on it and having it ready to go for next year, too ;)

Oh, I'm very sorry you pulled out. I'm especially sorry that you disliked the ep that much. :(

I have so much finished, it'd be a shame to let it go. I might rework the storyline a little since this is now a fic just for me. ;D
