My third round of Rogue skies
, facing off TO THE DEATH against
... has come to an end! And so has my participation in Rogue Skies, if you couldn't tell.Previous Page
I urge you to go read Bilious's entry
right away, and see this story from another point of view!
This has been a lot of fun, I made new friends, got to test my skills, but ultimately it took too much of my time, and my motivation was waning. I didn't want to just throw in the towel and forfeit, though. I wanted to go out with a bang! I wanted to make the LEAST DISAPPOINTING FORFEIT EVER. It was lucky that I ended up matched against Bilious. Since she and I have been friends for a while, it was easy to cook up something together, and hopefully we've created a round that will be remembered!
The only reason I was able to muster the will to complete this round at all, was because I knew it would be over afterwards, and the collaboration with Bili was a wicked cool experiment (one that couldn't really have happened if I had really been competing)! Congratulations to all RS contestants, your entries were and will continue to be an awesome read. Thank you to =wallabri
, you two were great organizers, and in a less awesome tournament I might have given up much earlier
So what happens next? The answer is and always has been Pastry

I guess this verbose tirade all comes down to: It was one hell of a ride! Thanks for reading. And keep reading!
