    I am full of relieve now. For I already had answered all the authors of this challenge in so far.

    Now I hope it is okay that I wrote more than one fic about Vader and his trouble with texts. But lately I had much reason for fear & anger.

    Writing helped to process my feelings in the Vader one-shoots and in writing Orson Krennic in my own special way. Brave and ever kind @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha must be totally overworked by now from all this short-notice beta-editing.

    And so "A new hope" has been followed by "Under pressure", "There might be dragons" and "Every child is special". I am still working on the next Vader one-shot. Somehow one fic always leads me to the next in line: "Hallo darkness, my old friend".

    Then there is still the matter of Barin Samye and his restricted growth, as fully mentioned in the fic "Evermore".

    I'm considering signing up to read and review, too, since I have already reviewed (or plan to review) several of the stories already anyway. One thing that would help me make up my mind would be knowing about how many stories we can expect to be in the final list; even just a very rough estimate would help. (That is part of why I asked about the list of stories so far; thanks for providing that, @Briannakin. :) ) I know @Ewok Poet and @Raissa Baiard have plans for contributions; anyone else? (Not trying to turn the pressure up on anyone, just curious to know so that I'll have a better idea of how to budget my time.

    And as to the reviewing portion of the challenge: I take it that the reviews count even if they're posted before the August 1 story deadline? As in, the reviews I have written on stories in this challenge so far would already count? Thanks for confirming. :)

    Yes.

    However, given the lack of enthusiasm for this challenge, and my own current health, Mav and I do still reserve the choice to cancel this review challenge come August 1st

    Thanks for the response, @Briannakin. Hope you're doing all right and taking good care. @};-

    I'll go ahead and volunteer for the reading/reviewing portion, though of course I completely respect whichever decision you and @mavjade come to on August 1.

    Well, I am writing something, but it probably won't be ready for the deadline.

    Want me to cheer for you? :)

    You can cheer for me - I have 189 words on the collective guilt story and 368 on the psychosis story (decided not to do BPD, but outright "insanity" and yes, I read a lot about it and fact-checked with people who experienced it).

    And who are you responding to?

    Edit: 324 words added. Going a bit easier, now that I have decided to streamline this thing.

    This Hollow thing is about a Middlesex County; are you sure it is the name of the one next to where you grew up?

    Wikipedia, both on a map of named West Virginia counties, and tabled list of same, do not feature a Middlesex. New Jersey, Virginia, Connecticut, and Massachusetts all have one.

    I'm sure that's it, but it's about McDowell County, West Virginia, not Middlesex. Though funny enough, I've lived in Middlesex County in Massachusetts.

    The OP says "Before" so, no. However, I run on PST and am generally a fairly lazy person, so you'll probably have much of August 1 anyways before I post the final reading list.

    Also, I want to take this opportunity to beggggg for participants. So far, we have 4 confirmed (@Ewok Poet , @Kahara , @Findswoman and @Raissa Baiard ). If your name isn't on the list and want to participate, please let me know. We will be going through with the 'competitive' portion of this challenge, but it's always more fun to have more people!

    Ah, McDowell. Probable mis-communication with whomever designed the fancy graphic, as that literally says in big letters:

    There are 156 users who departed Middlesex County

    and

    Pop. of Middlesex
    1,503,085


    Soooo...




    Fine, I'll be a reviewer.

    I'm on the home run of the story portion.

    Okay-dokey, ...You Can Hire The A-Team

    Mine isn't going to be on the must read list for the challenge, but I wanted to write something for it anyway.

    Knowing Who You Are - is a West Wing story with all OCs, the main character is bisexual.

    Here goes...for what it's worth.

    #1

    This is a story about collective guilt. I often hear that "my people caused the WWI" and...don't let me started on the 1990s. I mean, I was a child, nothing that happened was my doing, OR my family's doing, yet I got bullied on the internet for years. So were my Geonosian OCs. They also have personality disorders, because I'm Ewok Poet and I have a personality disorder in partial remission myself, duh.

    Here's Respawn.


    #2

    This one is about drug-induced psychosis AND the way people behave when their life is in immediate danger and they're in closed space. I have not experienced the earlier, but I have seen it in my first cousin, who was in a permanent state of it from May to September 2016 when he passed away. I experienced the latter during the 1999 NATO bombardment and, well, we write what we know more often than not, don't we?

    Cinders.

    Just for the record, the second one was posted 4-5 minutes before the deadline and this post edited with basic info one minute before it. The further edits are just clarifications and formatting.

    The start of the kindergarten year is not as stressful as I thought. And since I reviewed most stories already, please put me on the list as well.
