I'll judge again if you need, one Shin.

Cut it to 8,500 Dance, and submit it.

Thanks HD.


In other news, I have actually put words to paper for this contest. I never made it that far for the others. :D

It's been a while since the last submission, and currently there are only two stories in the submissions thread. Is anyone else entering? I know the deadline is some time away yet, but it's not _actually_ that far away, really, especially if people are planning on starting a story from scratch...

I have written and thrown out seven stories. I think I have something now that might make the cut. Its a semi heroic. Pretty fun to write.

I've been reading over the old entries, and I'd hate to have to judge. So many are really good.
