    knew I should have just come here to look! Thank you Gregory! And here I was waiting for email responses to make sure things had posted. I appreciate the leg work. I promise, next year will be better set up and further in advance!

    Mathtans: This is only the fourth one and so you only missed the link to the first (which I have):

    I thought we DID do one in 2014 , no? thanks for finding the original, I need to look some of these people up and see what they are up to now. I completely spaced out that I was just a participant the first time, and resurrected it .

    If we did, I didn't know about it.

    No problem, AlexH! I'm the secretary of most committees I'm on, because I enjoy doing collating and that sort of thing. When I saw Unice's message on the old thread, I thought I might as well generate the new one. Plus it gave me something to read. :)

    Thanks for the link, Jim! I'll have to check those out. (Maybe even comment 6 yrs out of date and confuse the daylights out of someone. ;) As to 2014, AlexH, I remember when you raised the idea for the one in 2015 (which was in January - I know because I was reading Jim's backlogs in February that year) you said it was an "old favourite" which hadn't run recently. I wasn't sure how big the gap was prior to 2015 though.

    For the record, I've noticed SovereignofAshes doing some reorganizing on RRL; for now, the "April Fool" chapter is better found at the author's main site:

    lol I did notice that the chapter was gone on RRL, but due to some kind of brain glitch, it didn't occur to me to look on the other site. I've updated my links.

    My sincere apologies Unice5656. I got overzealous and wrapped up in revisions. Really bad timing. The stories got split up on RRL for organization sake.

    The entry on RRL is here: http://www.royalroadl.com/fiction/chapter/128667

    Thank you Mathtans for getting the right link on the blog site.

    Everyone should check out Unice's entry for the story. She wrote it beautifully.

    Oh, Unice, wanted to share some input from a reader that checked out your AFS entry. From pokeperson1000: "I want this chapter to be canon. So badly. I was smiling and laughing, and besides, they got a holy feather now. XD"

    If you ever want to do a Fantasia/Vorrgi mini-collab sometime, there's an audience for it. ^_^ Thank you for your entry.

    I have stuff on here too! The Vorrgistadt Saga.

    I've updated my links again.

    @SovereignofAshes: pokeperson1000 is currently my most avid fan, as mathtans could possibly attest to. He writes literally paragraphs of comments every chapter, which is rather gratifying.

    If you have an idea for a project, I'd certainly be willing to listen to it, but I currently have no ideas of how to continue what I started on that guest chapter. The feather is yours to do as you will, with or without my input, but make sure you let me know if you want to do something in my story world or with my characters.

    Heh, A. awesome. The april fools story written for me for Phoenix 2125 the first year we did this became canon as well, and I had to work the character in here and there.

    also, that concept, an item being left behind after a crossover, is totally what we tried to do for the holiday season a few years back, christmas presents, basically, create an item, give it to one of the characters of the other serial, and write something based around the item. wonder if anyone is up for that later this year?
