Jim has it now...he hasn't turned it around yet.

Should we post notes when we pass it on, so that people know where it is?

Yes I have, thank you! Jeeze!

BTW, I have to admit, there is something sinfully gleeful about writing in this voice. I can almost picture John Waters doing hommage to Russ Meyers as I follow the flow established. Having had a taste of it, I can now undertsand why there's so many f'n' Mary Sue's out there: It's a FUN genre, like being smothered in hot fudge along with someone you love, and then...

Um, sorry, nearly had a TMI violation. Anyways, just wanted to kvell/warn about Mary Sue writing for those coming up who like me might not have ever really done it before. There is something very seductive about it; you've been advised...

I keep thinking that this will be my first fanfiction writing experience, but I just remembered a comical one that I wrote when I was about 13 (NOT a Mary-Sue...no females in the whole thing). I'll have to find it and post it somewhere. LOL...

Thank goodness for it, though...I was worried I'd be stuck in the MS style -- like Jim was talking about.

I am eagerly anticipating the adventures of Ms. Case. Thanks for posting who has it now, Tina. I think that is a good idea -- whoever has the story, please post here so we all know where it is or if it is currently in transit.

I can't wait to find out what is happening in the Saga of Mary-Sue Charity C. Case!

What was that about a "climax?"

BTW, it doesn't have to END with the last person -- we can send it around several times before it's done. Just wanted to make that clear so no one feels pressured to FINISH it if they are near the end of the list.

I can't wait to read the continuing saga of Mary-Sue Beatle, or Charity Case.

I just checked my sent mail folder, and it claims that it was sent at 1:18 am--if you still don't have it, tell me and I'll send it again. My mail HAS been acting up, but I do have a copy.
