Wonderful interview and fanart.
Well, it looks like I'm out of here guys. Two wonderful people have stepped up to handle the challenge of running the index: BigFatty and NYCitygurl! Thank you!
Due to the fact that JAGSGURL15 appears to be an a hiatus for unknown reasons, we brought in not one, but two managers for the index. They, along with TKeira_Lea will be running it for us, and I'm sure that they will do a great job.
Now that they're trapped in the job, I think I'll flee
Again, thank you everybody!
Thanks for doing this for so long, LJS!! And thanks for helping Sara and I get started
We'll miss you!!!!
I ditto Nat.
Time to enlighten...er, welcome my new victims.
Thanks so much for all your hard work, LJS! You will be missed - please stop in whenever you can!
Applause and congratulations to BigFatty and NYCitygurl for stepping up to keep this running -
Nat, BF ... we'll try to be good. I hope TKL isn't too hard on you LOL!
Wish there was more I could do - there just never seems to be enough time. *sigh*
Nah! The first part is easy...they just have to walk the plank. Yeah that's it!
(Just getting ready for Talk Like a Pirate Day )
*looks sideways at TKL* Uh-oh . . .
Yeah that's it!" should be "ARRRRRRRRRRRGH me mateys!"
Oooo! A new spiffed up Index! Wahoo!
Okay, I haven't really written any Jag/Jaina fics yet (except one) and I didn't visit the old Index either. But eh, we all stumble in sometime.
Thanks for the welcome
Congrats, you guys!
Excellent newsletter! Love the fanart!
Wow, big changes around here!
Whoops, pardon me. I'm a day late but I'll give it a shot anyway
Arrrrr! The tides be changing me matey's! Welcome aboard to the new crew and may the old crew prosper with thier plunderin' of other waters!
Hey all, we could really use some pictures of Jaina and Jag, together or apart, for the Index. The plan is to update the Index on October 1st (if Nat can get on for 5 minutes) and we would really like some. Please send anything in to the sock or to BigFatty.
Also, we're looking for a slogan for the Index. For example, the J/K Index has 'Rogue and Goddess' and the J/Z Index has 'First Love, Last Love.' Something like that which applies to J/J. Just send in any suggestions by PM.
What about The Taming of the Goddess?
Here's a list of all the slogan suggestions we have at the moment:
The Chiss Colonel and his Lady in Red
Trickster and Twin Suns Three
X-Wing and Clawcraft--Evasive Maneuvers
The Taming of the Goddess
Jaina and Jag--Behind the Conference Room Door
Once the indexer trifecta can get together for a chat, we'll establish a deadline for suggestions and then run a poll so you all can vote for which one you like the best. Until then, keep the suggestions coming!
I just noticed I didn't give a thanks to LJS or congratulate BF or Nat for taking this on.
I humbly apologize for my error.
I know that you ladies will do an awesome job.
Thanks for the welcome Lola!
Just a quick announcement this evening:
If you or someone you know has fanart featuring Jaina and/or Jag, please PM links to the work to either the Index or BigFatty. To get into October's newsletter, you need to get this information to us by next Wednesday (9/28) at the latest.
Nat and I are thrilled to be working for the Index and with TKL, and are very excited about the newsletter coming out in a week and a half. Thank you guys so much for the warm welcome and guidance.
*bows* Thanks to everyone who's thanked me for my work I really appreciate it And congratulations to BigFatty and NYCitygurl. It already seems like you guys are going to be great
I also would like to volunteer to help out if you guys need assistance Small-time stuff, not hours
But actually, in honesty, I'm looking forward to what you guys pull off here. It looks to be very exciting
Ooh, I like these suggestions so far! One (alright, two) suggestions: for the third, maybe just make it "Evasive Maneuvers" or "X-Wing and Clawcraft", and for the fifth, I happen to like the idea of "Behind the Conference Room Door" (by itself, since I assume you'll be saying Jaina/Jag Index with it anyway ). Too many words, and you won't be able to fit everything into the title
But beyond that, I think my favorite is "Behind the Conference Room"
Thanks for the ideas, LJS
We've gotten several submissions already, and they'll be in the update
October newsletter comes out tomorrow
Hmmm... my favourite would be "Evasive Maneuvers".
October newsletter comes out tomorrow

Hey, your first newsletter is great, guys!!
Very nice interview, Jaina_and_Jag. I understand exactly what you mean by reading your stories out loud to yourself...
And an interesting challenge - just when I don't have time to participate. Oh, well, next time.
We also have a good list of slogan possiblities. Have to try some of those out loud and see how they sound!
Well done, everyone!
EDIT: P.S. I'll try to come up with some more art and/or buttons for you later this month.
