    The Competition thread looks way underposted compared to last year. Cause for concern?

    Err...yeah, sorry about that. :( They finally won it last year, so I figured it was time to give them and a judge a break.

    Moreover, I think their contesting days are probably over; at a certain point you know a group of characters well enough that it takes too much of the challenge out of fitting them to a new story based on a prompt (that was my grand multi-year SWC strategy, heh). I might write more short stories about them, but it'll be on my own time.

    Adblock needs to lose weight. *nods*

    Yeah, I intend to get a heap of stuff done over the next couple of days with assignments; today was fairly light though, haha. And I see you already found a very able judge. =p

    Pop by the bbs btw if you have time, stuff be a happening. Which is exciting given that's outside of the norm. =p

    Working is certainly...uh, good. =p Maybe you also have a bunch of programs that slows it up?

    That sucks about the finger but at least it is on the mend.

    And I'm still at uni! My time off only starts at the end of this week and lasts a week. Already looks like I've got a bunch of assignments/reports to work on (better then rather than dying a week down the track under everything I suppose), but that's not going to stop me from doing more stuff on the bbs/wynaut and here as well if need be. =)

    Thread noticed and discussed in.

    Writing along Digimon-wise, and now I can't decide where I want to end the chapter. On one hand, it's pretty short as-is, but on the other I'm feeling kind of like another cliff-hanger, but back on the first I don't know if two big cliff-hangers in a row is a good idea.

    Call it: Heads or tails? If you're right it's a cliffhanger. Scratch that, I made up my mind.

    I don't know a thing about OSC graphic novel adaptations, but Harrison Ford! :D It also has that kid from Hugo as Ender, which sounds like a very good casting to me.

    I see a possible lose-lose situation fandom-wise: either it's really good and you get a bunch of nouveaux-Ender fans who get confused on which elements were in the books or movie(s) (there was only one elf at Helm's Deep, you wannabe LOTR fans), or it's really not good and you have to tell everyone "Read the book! It's not bad like the movie!"

    I'd be okay with judging, if you think I qualify. I'd like to give some of the old standby judges a chance to participate for a change.

    Xros Wars, eh? My opinion of it went sharply downhill after the first few episodes, but perhaps that's just me. (First Digimon series I couldn't bring myself to finish, actually.)

    Life, as ever, is busy with studies but generally pleasant. Been thinking about this Ender's Game movie (which they're actually filming this time!) as of late, and whether it will be a worthy adaptation. Card seems excited about the project, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Speaking of Get-Together, do we have judges lined up for the Small Writing Contest?

    Can't say I do, but if I pull out my handy fandom size:OC ratio:expected cliche ratio formula, I'd say it's about 1.08x10^2 +/- 5.00.

    Speaking of Digimon, I'm writing my chapter 5 in a computer lab right now. Really wish I had gotten around to it earlier, but there was a bunch of computer trouble I had throughout July, and also it's good that I spent some time sketching out the specifics of crazy things that are to go down in later chapters. Hope to have this one posted before the Get-Together.

    So how are things around here?

    Ahh that's really nice of you to offer, I'd love some suggestions if you have any? And thanks, I had no idea anyone was actually reading it so I didn't continue haha. I do enjoy writing but I never thought I'd be good enough at it to write something that people will actually read. x3 If you have any tips to make the writing more interesting I'd be grateful to hear them?

    Thanks, much appreciated! n.n

    That is a lot of Unown cards. o_o

    Thanks. I also hope I shall get through it all; so far so good! Doing a special project this semester too which is going surprisingly well thus far. ~

    He has been very well patted, I assure you. And fed. And carried!

    Poor computer. =( And you as well.

    That does sounds cardtastic. I never had many myself (only a handful of Pokemon cards), although a friend of mine has nearly all the Pokemon cards ever, haha.

    Pokemon cards, Digimon cards, Orson Card...sounds about right.

    I am busy but otherwise fine. Just having a bit of trouble juggling all the personal projects I want to do besides modding and uni and other life stuff! And he is getting better. Had a bit of surgery to cut of a bit of bone that was sticking out too much and he needs rebandaging every few days though, but he is doing better than expected apparently and getting by alright on three good legs.
