So here we are, with more than 500 posts, which is…yuuuge! Not many WIPs have crossed the 500 mark, and TSS joining the coveted rank is a testimonial for the popularity, quality and clarity of vision of the author.
@Carawen( are you someone from the carawen monks of witchlands?), I have probably said this a multiple times, but I see no harm in repeating that you are an adept writer, and add to that, a good person. I don’t think I know when you set off your sails in this project, but the way you have worked relentlessly for the last 41 days, let’s say, reaffirmed my faith in Swedish work ethics. It’s hard to juggle personal life, writing and quenching the curiosity of admirers, I won’t go as far as to claim that I can fully get myself in your shoes, but I can only appreciate the dedication, determination and drive.
Many of you might not know @Eevee_Love, but Eevee is probably the most frequent visitor to this thread. But his/her/their modus operandi is not being vocal, but silently appreciating the hard work of Carawen( @Carawen, we are talking about someone who liked almost every single post of yours, so, we know who your biggest admirer is!!). And I really appreciate Eevee’s efforts, as well as the other members who don’t want to be vocal, but have shown considerable interest in this thread.
I think it’s time that @Eric_knight receives a well deserved round of applause from us. Not only is he( right?) one of the most active members, but he is probably one of the youngest as well. His enthusiasm and energy is something that puts my ‘Regular’ badge to shame. And I think that @AmericanShakespeare also deserves a mention, being one of the most active participants in not only this but also various other threads in the forum.
@LauraSikdar, you are probably one of the newest members, but your enthusiasm can be infective, do you know that? Here’s hoping that you can finally find some characters who intrigue you more than Devanand Sikdar, who also probably happens to be the only Bengali character created by any COG/HG.
@Morphine, @Hearts, @Orchid and others, your support and suggestions are the catalyst to the rapid progress of this project. I should also mention @nulCat, who happens to have a great sense of humor. And there are many who have come across this thread and contributed to the betterment of this thread in their own ways, and I shall like to say that their efforts are appreciated.
So, well wishes to everyone!!!
Edit : so, @Jared_Frias here threatened to pull clear… is not in the mood to play by unfair rules and can’t stand partiality, right Marune😜? My bad. I remember, Momma said, " Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you gonna get". So, it seems that you get a heartfelt apology from me. There, there, everything gonna be alright.
And I think it would be unjust not to thank the newest ‘Regular’ Chocolatemix who took time out to help and encourage Carawen, even though she has her hands full with her own WIP. It’s really awful that I forgot.
Sorry for not being able to thank all the wonderful members out there personally.
