message 11: by Kaje (new)

Kaje Harper | 16565 comments Go for it - there are some clues, but I took it by flipping back and forth from the story thread to the quiz - I missed some even so (and I read all of them when they came out) but managed a respectable score. (Only mods can't win the prizes so it doesn't count.)


message 12: by Kat (new)

Kat (cutestsubever) I should be working... instead I've been sitting here the last hour reading all the great stories written by you guys and answering quizzes... The result? So worth it! 18/18 :)

Wow - you're in the running for a story from John (which I think would just be a hoot.)

Yeah, this game and the next one, the top winner gets a custom short story from either John or me - give us names/a picture/a plot/some elements and get a story of your own design :) Should be fun.

Andra (andora) | 43 comments Wow! Sammy and Shaz have worked so hard! Congrats for organizing this event! I'll have to read all the nice stories I've missed and you putting them in one place makes it so much easier for us, lazy people *blush*


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

I can't remember if i did this or not.

Lizzie Hall | 560 comments 1/18...my "Don't bother reading the questions or answers" strategy didn't work this time, LOL

Yeah, counting on luck doesn't always work (although they say getting a number way below chance suggests some kind of psychic powers too...)


message 23: by Kaje (new)

Kaje Harper | 16565 comments Wow, great job Brad (and Hannah - yes you have a score registered - if you click on the link to the quiz it will show you.)

Susan65 I suck! LOL


message 25: by Kaje (new)

Kaje Harper | 16565 comments Wow, Matty, you rock. Sammy and Shaz did a great job with it. They're going to have to draw to see who gets John's custom story (or mine) - it's great that people are enjoying the stories too.

Guessing is fine - we're glad to have you join in (and Lizzie's guesses first round went pretty well :)

Maybe someday if summer is going slow you might like to check the stories, although the f/f ones are only 3 or 4 out of the lot (besides Lizzie's great poem one for June, that is) and a couple are not HEA. We need another f/f month soon. But there are some great stories in the bunch. Thanks for playing!

Kaje Harper | 16565 comments Congratulations!! Matty - so... a straight up story from me or one with more humor (and a double decker bus and cats... maybe???) from John?

I can write a straight up gay story.

That sounded wrong.

I know you can - but your stories always have this wonderful touch of humor and fun in them that I envy, even when they're serious (that came out wrong too - I don't mean you make fun of being serious... usually.) Anyway, I'm just trying to get Matty to make you write my story - silliness, basically.

Sleeping or eating - what else would a self-respecting cat be doing on a lazy morning?
