well that sucks. I've read some of your stuff (none of the ones you mentioned admittedly, but still), and it was all quite good to be honest. Ok, some of it was really good, but ya know - don't want to feed your ego too much ;)
I guess I'll see you on ff.net - though I'm not on there too often - and this does sound kinda heartless (considering it's a goodbye note, I mean), but are you still ok to beta for me?
I will beta you until my eyes bleed. (That's a yes.)
