So, that's about it for the Bash Brothers in Love, hope you all enjoyed. Sorry it came so late, though. I should have it up within the week, she says. What can I say? I'm a lying bitch. As you can see, this chapter was exceedingly long, but you should have seen the first draft; I topped 7,000 words! I've always had an awful time trying to pare my stuff down, so that's why it took so long. I'm separating this from the dance chapter, because I thought you guys might want a little break, and so I wouldn't feel so badly about rambling.

I'd like to thank all my lovely reviewers, Bottles and Cake-Eater and Xixie and Kelly and everyone else, you guys kick the shit! I don't think you guys read my stories, but Taiorami and Selena, if you're out there, what the hell are you trying to do to me? Update, goddamnit! Writing awesome stories should put you under some sort of contractual obligation to update at least once a month. I would like to thank whoever it was who came up with "Fatty McButterpants," and I hope you won't mind me stealing it. It just cracked me up when I read it, but now I forget who wrote it. I think it was Cake- Eater or Rock n'Roll, but I'm not sure. Bottles: Thanks so much for the email. Unfortunately, I don't own a computer, and I have no idea what AIM is. Watership Down is definitely one of the best books of all time; Bottles agrees with me, so to all you virgins out there, go read it now!

I can't believe that I've been writing fan fiction for less than five months! Anyway, as you may or may not know, the kids who got me hooked in the first place with their amazing Queertet stories, are holding nominations for their fan fiction awards, and I strongly encourage everyone to nominate their faves. Star says they've only received two noms so far, so get with it, they're due by May 31st! Why am I plugging these? Because they're a great way to read a lot of amazing stories, and because the writers should know that they're appreciated. I am nominating the following stories:

Things Fall Apart, by Bottles

All Locked In by WeBuiltThisCityOnRockAndRoll

And I Fell by Wari

Ice Cream by Selena

Fulton and Portman by BennyP

Crazy Old Man Korean Shop by Fifi Reed

You guys all kick ass, and so do your stories!

As for me, my next story will be a one-shot about Adam and Charlie, a bittersweet little piece of nostalgia that came to me while my friends and I were listening to Van Morrison and smoking a lot of weed. Hope it meets with your approval, Bottles! After that, I'll be getting back to the F/P, with an A/U story called A World Without Ducks. I got the idea while writing the cabin chapters of this story, when Portman wondered what life would be like if Fulton and he had never met. The story has been plaguing me ever since, and I know if I don't get it out soon, it's going to turn into another epic. I'll give a little more info at the end of my little C/A experiment. I have plans for forays into other facets of Duckie fics for the future, a horror story might be coming next, or an essay-type exposition on my love for the world of Ducks.

Will there be another sequel to the Bash Brothers? Obviously, I ended this one so that it was possible, but it will definitely be awhile, because I have so much I want to write, and I want to make sure my ideas stay fresh. I don't imagine I'll be able to stay away from this world forever though. I think my magnum opus, if you will forgive the pompous terminology, will haunt me to the bitter end.

Now even this afterword has reached obscene lengths, so I will leave you here. Thanks for reading, and don't forget to nominate you favourite Duckie fanfics! I would like to dedicate this story to my cat Ghost, whose purrs, kisses and lovebites give me inspiration when nothing else will, and to Elden Henson, who shines on.
