    I am so far behind. I doubt I'll finish my decathlon, but I do have the second of three stories up in my Leia/Ezra series, What Dreams may Come.

    Inspired by what is happening now in Afghanistan I re-visited an old story and took some of it to present the hunt for the holocron

    I guess I didn't even account for the 110 Word Hurdle, got that one too.

    Just 50 words short on completing the Triathlon with 400 words... Not sure I can complete another page by then... (By the way, those of you not crazy enough to do this challenge with a comic, be thankful for your word count programs).

    Completed the last event for Our Weakness Is the Same, wrapping up that decathlon.

    I think that's going to be it for me this month. :p The Ben decathlon will be finished eventually, I just have to wrap up EtF first. 8-} Thanks so much @devilinthedetails for hosting this event!

    Congratulations to those who have completed some or all of their events, and to those (like me) who have yet to complete some or all of our events, we have until tomorrow to complete them in order for them to count toward this challenge. However, we can always keep writing and updating our stories with events as we finish them so if we don't complete everything by tomorrow that is okay.

    @earlybird-obi-wan Congrats on completing a new pentathlon so quickly! I've got it added to the index now:)

    @ViariSkywalker Thank you so much for participating in this Fanfiction Summer Olympics! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did:D

    Phew, I finished with my contributions for the Summer Olympics:

    = “Beautiful madness” (1500 Word Dash, Star Wars Decathlon)
    = “Girl” (Single Sentence Shot Put)
    = “Cover me in sunshine” (110 Word Hurdle)
    = “I, too can command the wind, sir!” (400 Word Cross Country)
    = “(I just) Died in your arms tonight” (4x100 Relay)
    = “Pali sikkhāpada” (100 Word Sprint)
    = "Moon hunt" (Fantastical Fencing, at least 100 words)
    = “Lost place” (200 Freestyle)
    = “Blackbird” (Prime Time Coverage)
    = “Good-bye, cousin” (Water Polo)
    = “Once upon a time...” (AU Archery)

    All can be found here and are hopefully according to the rules. I got pretty held up by health issues and beloved folks around me, such as my husband DarthUncle and my mother, were in and out of hospital as well. But here we are. All categories done.

    As it is September 2nd, I now declare the Summer Olympics to be closed. I hope everyone enjoyed reading and writing the stories inspired by this event as much as I did. It was a joy to host this challenge, and I hope it was a pleasure to participate as well.

    Congrats to those who made incredible and valiant efforts to complete their stories on time.

    I will now be looking at all the stories linked in the index to determine who won what medals. The announcement of the winners will take place in a separate post either today or tomorrow depending on how crazy life turns out to be for me today.

    I didn't finish my decathlon – got stuck on the AU bit, because I still suck at writing AUs, and the return to work was... quite something anyway – so I got 8 events out of 10 on that one. I did, however, finish the pentathlon and, most importantly, I wrote more for this challenge than in the past several years, so all this definitely counts as a win.

    Thanks so much for hosting this @devilinthedetails and thanks everyone for sharing your awesome stories!

    Didn't get quite as much done as I'd hoped, but hey, for joining in the last month of the event and doing this with a comic, I guess three isn't bad. [face_coffee]

    Congratulations to all our medalists for their hard work and producing some wonderful stories!

    It was, once again, a pleasure to host this event! [:D]
