    I thought we had until February 6th to get this done, and I was starting to panic. I'm so glad I checked...that's another 20 days I can procrastinate now :p

    A question for @OCDatabaseSock @Thumper09 : is "something so shocking/outrageous you can't make sense of it" a fair interpretation of the prompt?

    That’s an excellent question, and I’m going to let @Thumper09 field it, just to be completely safe! :D

    Yup, I'd say that's perfectly fine, since I'm seeing that as a "Does. Not. Compute." reaction. :cool:

    I forgot to put the era that it's in for my fic which means the title looks weirdly bare - but it's up!

    Chapter 1 of Lost in the Everywhere which is a Family of Scoundrels fic with Estra as the main character (for once!)

    Our second entry, hooray! I’ve got it in our index now; thanks so much. If you tell me what era(s) you’d like put on there, I can add the prefixes. :)
