    Oh it fits. This is the first place I should enter it to. But I should mention that it is a sub-story of my novel, Abdication. It can fit as a short story itself. But I've written it as a chapter of my novel. And I am going to post it both as a short story, and a chapter of my novel. I hope that's OK. The story is so independent in its own sense, that I want to post it separately, too.

    Is it alright if I ask for an extension?
    I know the contest deadline is tomorrow but I've had the flu for the last week and this is the first chance I've had to get on the computer :(

    Unfortunately I'm only going to have two chapters posted to my story. School started and working other times, so that's all I've been able to write up. But I'm real happy I joined this. Because I would t have even gotten this far, otherwise. :)

    Oh God I'm a failure at responding. Facepalm Do you still want to do this? I'm willing to extend the deadline a bit for you to make things fair. I'd love for you to write that. Cute

    @ You_InspireMe
    Sure thing! Let me know if you change your mind. Cute

    @ BaconTommyVicious
    Thank you so much! I'll put it up there now!

    @ perfect disaster
    Awesome! Let me know when you have something up. I'll extend the deadline a bit because I've been crappy at replying. Facepalm

    @ Kaaren Nafar
    That's absolutely fine! I'll put your entry up there now. tehe

    @ Gamzee
    That's absolutely okay! Thanks for letting me know!

    @ DragonxFox
    Why thank you. tehe I'm really glad you joined too, and I'm glad this contest gave you that inspiration! Two chapters is an awesome job! I've extended the deadline a bit (or I will after this) so if you find yourself wanting to give a new chapter a gander it's always an option.

    @ perfect disaster
    Woohoo! Can't wait to read it! tehe

    @ Marya Morevna
    Of course! I've decided to extend it anyway so that's absolutely fine. Thank you so much for asking though! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Cute

    ATTENTION GUYS. tehe
    The deadline has now been extended to Friday the 6th of September. This is for a few reasons, one of them being that this week is a super duper busy week for me at uni and I'd like to judge relatively quickly, and another being that I'd like to give more people a chance to add to their entries (if they want to), because I'm so pleased with what people have been coming up with.

    This will probably be the final deadline, unless something comes up for you and you really think you'll need a few days. But yeah... write write write because next Friday this is done and dusted. Dance

    No worries! I've been pretty busy myself, as well. Sad Anyway, I won't be entering in this contest but if you do have another contest coming up, I'd definitely join that! Cute

    It'll be judged, just not at the moment. Life's too busy right now and I overestimated my time-management skills. But it's not going to be forgotten about and your entries will still be judged!

    UPDATE:
    Just letting you guys know that I'm halfway through the judging! I've read all but four or five stories I think, and I'll try my best to get the results up before the weekend. I've run out of steam for tonight, though, because I was studying all day, and I have an exam tomorrow so I should get some rest. tehe But yep. And just so you know: I'm blown away by all of your entries (the ones that I've read) so far. It's going to be incredibly hard to judge! Good luck to all of you and I'll get back to you soon!
