Story: Second Chances
Prompt: Marmalade 9. crayons + Malt (Sly's dare: Mike and Lonnie care for a small child) + Wafer
Rating: PG13 (only NSFW in the bathroom-wall-scrawl sense)
Word count: 1325
Notes: Haha, so...at long last we have Mike and Lonnie taking care of a small child. It's a direct continuation of this story and it got kind of long, so I added another cut so you could just click and see the picture part. But I hope the introduction turned out kind of fun too :) Going for a Silver medal for the Rainbow Brains! (Wafer marathon)
"Why do you have that? Why is it crying? What's going on?"
Prompts: Eggnog 3 (sleigh ride/sledding)
Extras: wafer cookie
Story: A Still More Glorious Dawn
Summary: Mattie goes sledding. I'm sure this can fit in somewhere with the story. I'm positive! Like... she's escaping people, and goes sledding to do that. It certainly explains the terrified look on her face.
Team Inconvenient Fire Drill Gold Medal (Day 1 of 4, wafer cookie marathon)
( Collapse )
Story Continuity: The Lethean Glamour extra
Prompts: Cantaloupe #19: for a song, Chocolate Chip Mint #17: familiar
Extra: Wafer Cookie (a truncated, incompletely drawn comic)
Summary: Just what it says on the tin, plus one of two ways Cygnelius is sort of like Rotti Largo. Maybe. I'd like to apologize to whoever ends up reading/looking at this, because it really is hugely pointless.
Note: Let's go for a silver medal for Team Inconvenient Fire Drill, shall we?

We have had a lot of technical difficulties since transferring the count to Google Sites. Counting has been very time consuming and hard for the mods and there have been frequent losses of data throwing off the count.
We are currently awaiting a new system (my lovely husband is programming us a database and user interface that will allow a whole new system by which you will be able to report and update your own counts). Thanks to computer malfunction/repairs it is not finished yet, but should be in the near future.
As it will be much easier for us to report the pieces posted in the interim to the new site than it will to continue with the current procedure and the constant fixing that entails, we will be freezing the counting page until the new system is available.
I know most of you already keep count of your own pieces. Please continue to do so. There will be a post going up shortly where you can report finished challenges to request banners. This system will continue when the new counting page is in place.
If you have any questions about the hiatus or the new counting system, leave them here.
