Hurrah and congratulations to all!
(I haven't read everything. I'm mostly away and off LJ for a trip this long weekend; but what I have read is definitely affecting. I look forward to reading them when I can devote an appropriate amount of time to them.) re: tweet: And isn't that just the way with adrenaline.

This is one day of the year, and it's for charity. Also? There are LJ cuts in almost every post so I didn't flood people with pics.

*slaps himself for inflicting Manilow on you*

(Really. I did slap. And that's Not My Kink, so I didn't enjoy it. Though I was amused by it.)

Dude, you are hella cute in that squid hat. Just sayin'...

Congratulations on finishing Blogathon. I've really enjoyed the snippets of Cicatrix you've posted, and hope to see you reach your goal.

well, I'm badly, sadly disappointed. I was told specifically that the auction ended at 3:00 am Eastern time today. I deliberately waited until 2:45 am, stayed up to bid last minute on an item I really really wanted. I would have paid anything for it over anyone else's bids. I find the bidding is closed already. So clearly I was told the wrong time.

Thanks a lot for the trick.

There was no trick. Bidding should not have closed until 11:59pm tonight (I don't know where you got 3pm, but it wasn't from anyone connected to the auction).

Your accusatory tone and nasty assumptions are rather surprising and inappropriate.

Actually, it was in an email from Alaina, the webmaster of the auction. I wrote the "webmaster" because I kept getting hiccups of "you have been outbid on this item" when there were no bids after me on an item. She fixed that, and I asked her WHEN the auction closed. She specifically said "12 midnight west coast time, 3 am east coast time."

My tone was sleep deprivation from staying up until 3 am on a work night to get what I wanted, only to find myself locked out for my efforts. Which apparently is a 'net glitch. So I do apologize for being snarky. For some odd reason (sleep dep, I'm guessing) I was depressingly disappointed in being locked out of trying for the item I wanted. Really really wanted. Even though it's just a "thing" and shouldn't be THAT important. There's just been way too much sadness/loss going on in my area lately, it seemed like the last straw of "loss."

Congratulations on finishing another blogathon! And thank you very much for sharing your craft with us. As I've been catching up with LJ yesterday and today, I've been engrossed in Cicatrix - as much as there are other things I could have been doing last night and this morning, I kept coming back to read more. Your words have been deeply moving and beautiful.

For the record, you are adorable in the giant squid hat ^_^
