To start this end note off I must thank all of the readers, cause honestly, without them us writers could write all the gibberish we want and hell, it would just sit here and collect cyber dust. You guys rock.
KyuketsukiInOki, cluelessinlife129, melliegirl13- these readers- reviewers are fuckawesome- but sure got my feathers in a huff. Not only did they read the collab- but they sure picked that shit apart and called me out on anything I missed. Firstly, I need to apologize for missing the same thing- over and over again- I tried, I really did, I have no excuses, only an explanation- I tried hard to catch any ut oh's in this- but shit that was one long ass collab to edit- fix up- rearrange and pick through. There were specific dets for the contributing authors to follow, apparently some missed the info section though- and where I hoped I caught it all, I obviously didn't. Grrrrr to me. I am fail, I know. Secondly- thank you, all three of you, for pointing this shit out to me, even if it drove me mad. I am glad it all got rectified and I honestly wouldn't have known if you hadn't pointed it out to me, so thanks!
In light of all of this – my failure in this collab- and the stress, tears, and expletives it elicited from me. I am undecided if I will continue these countdown/ collab.
The Valentine's one is already booked, so it will continue as planned, after that however I am unsure. I am sorry to disappoint any of the readers. Especially the ones who have faithfully followed my work, and these countdowns. I hope you can understand.
Now without further ado- I give you individual author's notes. Firstly from the participants of the collab and then some from authors who only wrote one shots.
Breath-of-twilight- Where to start…hmmmm…Aside from my usual thanks, there are a few girls that went above and beyond and were fantastical help and support to me.
K , so to start, Lindsi Loolabell, had to put my two cents in about this girl, here. She has been my rock in so many ways throughout this collaboration….any chunks that got bailed on, any that came back incomplete- she was so there by my side helping me get them done- I can't thank Lindsi enough for being so fucking damn wonderful- love ya girl! I also beta for her and if you have yet to read "The Letter" It is a good read- go check it out.
Socact and Spkykid18 – another cpl of fucktacular girls who unfortunately I didn't get the chance to know very well, but they were wonderific ly reliable for getting their chunks in on time and even going that extra mile and doing extra ones as well. I cannot even begin to thank them both enough- luckily I get to work with Spykid18 again as she will be joining us once again in the V-day countdown. Yeah!
Vampgirl18 – She was a great distraction and attempted at helping me edit that monster of a collab. Xx
Fragile Human – My dear, ducky, who went through everything after I edited it and made sure I didn't miss anything- aside from the obvious things I missed apparently….lol
Lastly- I started a new Christmas gift- song fic- The Sanguine Virtuoso's- I only plan on it being about 5 chaps- but fun- witty and a good read- Here is the summary- would love some feedback on it.
----Edward returns to Forks High for his reunion a renowned musician, finally ready to face his past. The ppl who ridiculed him and the girl he always wanted, who rejected him. His mantra - How do you like me now?-----
Lindsi loolabell –
I would deeply like to thank Kelli for hosting this awesome countdown and letting my sorry ass invade it. When she unwittingly allowed me to take part in it, she got more than she bargained on...And so did I. I now have an amazing friend. She listens to my moaning and whining and volunteered to be my beta (and trust me, that's not an easy job to take on with my shit grammar and spelling lol). I'm very grateful for this opportunity and for the friendship I have gained from it. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year
Amery Marie - First, thanks to everyone who took the time to read and review. Next, I need to say a quick thanks to my fellow LoD girls for always having time to read the bits and pieces I send them, providing valuable feedback and for kicking my ass and making me write every single night. I also need to thank my beta, Vanessarae for all that she does and Redvelvetheaven for previewing everything I write.
Last but not least, I need to give a huge thanks to Breath-of-twilight for asking me to participate in this whole thing. If you aren't reading her story Distorted Reality, do. Run don't walk. It is a serious mindfuck and so good. I have been lucky enough to preread a bunch of it since she started posting it and I love it.
Covermeinfeathers- First and foremost, thank you to Kelli for asking me to contribute to this countdown and collab. Both were firsts for me, and I really enjoyed participating with all of the other talented authors. More than that, though, I'm glad that this opportunity introduced me to Kelli as a person - someone to chat with about RL schtuff. She's a great listener and frequently doles out some darned good advice.
Second, thank you to those who reviewed my one-shot, and if you liked it, put me on alerts on FF because there will be more Pen Pals outtakes to come. I've also got another one-shot on here, as well as a multi-chapter story that I've been working on for several months, AmJur.
Again, thank you to Kelli, to the other great authors, and to the readers. You ALL make me smile. Merry Christmas.
Heartbroken1-- Has recently published a book, please take a moment and check it out:
My penname is Morgan Kearns...
www . MorganKearns . com
book is Fade to Black
Fade to Black is a tempestuous and witty love story, complete with dangerous twists and turns that keep the reader guessing until the very last page. Kate Callahan is a news reporter in Salt Lake City whose life seems to be perfect. Her attentive boyfriend, Jesse Vasquez, is determined to prove his love for her. But the day she steps through the doors of KHB as their newest reporter and meets photographer Rich Spencer, everything changes. There is something about the way he caresses her with his eyes, speaks to her without saying a word, and lights her skin aflame with a simple touch that makes her rethink everything she's ever known. Ultimately, she is faced with an impossible choice—one that tears her heart in two—which becomes excruciating when fate steps in and decides for her. Walking along a mountain of heartache and regret, Kate struggles to find a world where love does conquer all.
Birobird93- Hello there to all the faithful readers of birobird93 and of course, all the other authors who joined in this collab.
It's been quite a pleasure writing for BreathofTwilight and I would like to thank her for "bitching" my lazy ass into getting my one-shot done and my collab chunks.
It's been quite an experience and I would like to thank her.
I would also like to congratulate the other authors (whoever you wonderful people are)
I've read most of your stories and I have to say they take a big steaming dump all over mine. LOL.
But needless to say, it's been fun.
Hope you enjoy your holidays guys!
Merry Christmas!! :)
LOVE AND BEST WISHES TO ALL,
Snshyne - I'm not starting a few fic any time soon. I am continuing my o/s though. The I'll Be Home for Christmas, Ch 9. It will not be full length, but for sure multi chap.
As for writing about Breath-of-twilight, I don't know her very well. But I think "She is very demanding and stalks my ass till she gets what she is after. " is an accurate description. hehe ;o)
It was fun. I had a good time.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all that.
Vampgirl18-- I would like to thank Kelli, who is one of the sweetest, kindest, and funniest ladies I know. She is made of awesome, and there are no words to describe how fucktacular she really is. I had a lot of fun working on this 'project' and can't wait to start on the Valentine's Day one as well. Thank you to all who reviewed my story, I read them all and they made me smile! I have a new story up, it's called 'A Little Piece of Heaven'. If you like Domward and Darkward and Vampward, you'll enjoy this!
2carm2carm2 - Just finished my main story and will be posting the epilogue New Years Eve. On New Year's day I will be posting my new story- Thunder, Bella's a girl. "Edward's a boy. Bella has been in a wheelchair her whole life.
It's about a summer love that is short lived but kind of, you hold onto, whether you mean to or not."
I would love to write something about Breath-of-twilight, but it would most likely just be repetitive of the word AMAZING, along with fucking awesome, insanely patient, hardworking....and really fantastic and talented. :)
Not in collab- but submitted one shots
Cydryna Marie - Thanks to Breath of Twilight for once again putting on a GREAT countdown. If you liked my one shot (chapter 6) and want to see if the baby is a boy or a girl and want to read about Edward finally making love to his wife again, then go put me on author alert because I'll be posting one more chapter to give all you lovely readers just that!
Happy Holiday's! CydrynaMarie
Fragile Human- Ten Things I Love about Breath-of-Twilight:
1. She can't spell... but she tries.
2. She has no problem being a bitch, although she sometimes forgets that it's OK to be nice, too.
3. She writes the hottest, most fucktacular lemons EVER.
4. She has a Bella hate-on and that cracks me up.
5. She isn't afraid to be HERSELF and I fucking love her for that.
6. She does these fucking nuts countdowns and keeps going crazier and crazier but keeps doing them so that readers can find new authors (and we authors REALLY fucking appreciate it!)
7. She has no brain-mouth filter. Ever.
8. She will always talk you down off the ledge - even if she's making fun of you in the process.
9. She is fucking HILARIOUS. Seriously, tell her to write humor more often. She's kick ass at it.
10. SHE'S MY BB AND I KNOW SHE'S MY DOWN-ASS-BITCH FOR LIFE!
Love you goobs!
A/N: FIRST, some business to attend to. OMFG THANK YOU SO MUCH! The reviews and requests for me to keep going were INCREDIBLE. I cried. Srsly. You guys are amazing. And yes, I'm continuing it. I'm posting it THIS WEEK under the title "Death Wish" and don't be confused - the one shot is NOT the first chapter. It's the second! This is all because of you, readers, so thank you. Please to be letting me know if I'm killing it in a good way or a bad way, k? LOVES BYEEEEE!
That's all folks…
