Back from my TDY a few days too late to enter this month's contest, alas. I may still finish the story I had started and post it anyway. That way, people will know what they weren't going to vote for anyway...ha!
But seriously, the contest is a great way to get community involvement, and I want to support it as best as I can. I'll try to finish my (non-)entry and post in the story section. Definitely an interesting set of requirements this time, and I struggled to come up with something "impersonal", since most of my stories are so very intimate, and therefore personal.
