    Closure

    Honestly, I logged in to delete this account, but I saw waiting, unread PMs notifications, and as a human being, I glanced. And the previews I glanced over made me decide otherwise.

    I wish all of you well. May you all find joy. I am happy to say I have found mine. I am writing again after years of having a PTSD reaction to just opening a word document. On another site, in another fandom.

    Time moves so quickly and so slowly that it baffles me. The calendar is approaching my veritable D-day anniversary; it's almost been a year since something happened that broke me into so many pieces that I didn't think I could be put back together again.

    "State of the Author"

    You're a world away
    Somewhere in the crowd
    In a foreign place
    Are you happy now?

    TL;DR: I am not dead, but I'm not active right now, either.

    Be a little sweeter, they say
    Gotta give and take, but I say
    This time it's my way, ah, my way

    I'll do me
    You do you
    I don't need nobody's permission
    I won't back down
    Win or lose 🎶

    I'm disabling comments on all of my stories—past, present, and future.

Q&B Super Summer Jam - Final Results!! · 11:13pm Sep 17th, 2018

Okay!

I could do a long-winded ramble about how much I loved every entry, but to save the anxiety in the air, I'll cut to the chase. I'll leave comments on the respective entry threads now that voting is over. I was worried that my opinions might "sway" folks with my thoughts or something, plus it'll end things on high notes for all our fantastic finalists.

ANYWAY... cutting to the chase.

Well done everyone involved. It was tough to choose but we did our best. These four were outstanding in a sea of great stories. I can't wait to learn who wrote them!

(Hi, I wrote The Long Con.)

This contest was super fun and I'm sorry for inflicting a story that wasn't really at all related to Quill and Blade on you all, but I'm super pleased I made finals at least. Hope there'll be another of these in future!

I also had a ton of fun and I got to meet some new awesome writers. If you folks ever decide to do another contest some time in the future, I'd definitely be interested.
