Hello fellow (and more responsible) fic exchangers!

I am one of the "FOUR." You know, the one that didn't get her fic in and is now deeply ashamed to be a part of the whole thing at all. There are at least three good excuses I have for not having it done yet... but really, I know none of you care. You pushed through and got it done- why couldn't I?

I loved my prompt SO much and I still do and wish I could write a novel length for it (But Merlin, at this point it might take me a year). So I attempted to split into two parts and have them both out at the same time. I had a week long power outage, job crisis, and Christmas/New Year vacation all hit me full force. And I'M SORRY. SO SORRY.

When I saw that Chris was having other authors pick up MY slack- I couldn't handle it. Today I've sent her my first part in hopes that she'll forgive me (grudgingly, I know). Not sure if she'll post it or not, which either way, I understand and respect her decision.

If she does not, I will post it myself. I WILL FINISH the second part. Soon. Not a month from now. It's a PROMISE to you and myself. I don't want this reputation.

So now I'll quit my groveling and whining and begging in hopes that you will all forgive me for my lack of discipline and time management with RL.

~Laura

Hey! To be pefectly honest, you aren't one of the four—you were one of the "EIGHT" that hadn't sent it in... I found replacements for these authors, and the "four" are four replacements who haven't sent theirs in yet (you know who you are! *glares*).

The only issue I have with posting your first part is that I've already posted your prompter's gift-fic *scratches head* I don't really know what to do. *laughs*

(I'd already said all this in my email to you, but I don't know which one you'll check first *grins*)

I could just suck it up and post it on my name after the reveals tomorrow. Eh- At least I don't feel as though I COMPLETELY abandoned it.

The fic exchange was organised in a way that all participants end up in a circle, like: A -> B -> C -> D -> E -> A. So tomorrow, when I post the list, I'll mention the names of everyone who didn't hand it in *shrugs* I can link to your half-finished fic in the post if you post it :)

I saw in the News page that Sara didn't get anything? Did she really get nothing? Sarina was the one supposed to write her prompt, wasn't she?

Yes, Sarina was supposed to, and I couldn't find anyone to replace her on short notice. *sighs*

Well that's not fair. Maybe it's a little unconventional, and it wouldn't be a surprise, but I could do the prompt anyway if you wanted.

I've actually already told Sara I will finish it for her, I just didn't make it by the reveal deadline.

Okay, well as long as she gets one.
