But I emailed you back strop D:

1. Obviously you didn't read the story, did you.
2. We are eliminating contestants.

You will still be in the story, but as a cameo, which is a guest role. If you were to be in the tournament itself, it would be like undermining the trouble the contestants have been through throughout the story.

One and a half pages through archive... Zzzzzzzz... Lord of the Rings has less description, Strop.

But it's a nice story...
I'm aware I said I'd have something done today. I'll unfortunately have to renege on that. Workload is simply too heavy, and will remain so until Sunday (my time).


I have a lot of time... A week isn't much to the months I can wait for.
I shall finish deciding the matchups in the next few days, and write all the material (there will be a growing amount of reading to do as the plots diverge, then start to intertwine.)


Like a candy cane, or like a vine yard? Or simply put, complex intertwining or not?

To be fair a ton of people eliminated themselves earlier on in the competition.


AMW.

Nothing else is needed.


and unfortunate truth...or maybe fortunate...to be determined.

Wrong! WoM has hardly any description. It's mainly things blowing up and inappropriate jokes. And a cast of four dozen or so.

Crimson's correct. I would have started culling the numbers right from the word go, but there was really no need for me to. Online collaborations have a very high attrition rate.

Also, waiting for this long before I started really cutting people from the tournament maximises the potential of each character to play a role in the story that surrounds the tournament. The WoM isn't just about the tournament. It's about AG itself. My aim is to put together the greatest forum-based collaborative fiction of all time.

This would be best judged after you have witnessed.

My day is now halfway over. Just one more class to go... which I have to prepare for... yeah later.

Obviously, that message isn't mean for in-character behavior... or is it! Thoroughly amusing.

I don't see a difference honestly.
