I am devastated that the fest is over; it was a constant source of inspiration and yes, distraction, but of the best nature, challenging me intellectually and aesthetically and galvanising me to re-think my favourite character in new and unexpected ways. Fortunately, there are still stories I have not had a chance to read (albalark! for some reason I completely missed your story, but will remedy this soon!), and many more I have yet to comment upon, so I have that to look forward to for a few more days.
At this point, I would like to thank iulia_linnea for running such a fabulous fest, for her golden patience and kindness, and abrae and my dearest delphi for jumping into the fray during a time of great need. Your insightful comments and gentle words were more than I deserved, and I owe you greatest thanks.
Forgive me if I sound repetitive, and for falling so behind on responding to comments. I came down with a fever yesterday and am not doing so well on the mental side of things either. As soon as the fog clears, though, your wonderful, wonderful comments will be my treat to look forward to.
