    Re: Guess the Authors

    Well, not as many guesses as I thought there might be, but guessing was a bit of a tall order. Those three who did guess should now have a PM with the answer.

      Re: Guess the Authors

      So now when the authors are revealed I thought I'd share my guesses:

      Elibean - Babyward baby ward
      Ally - Don't forget your costume
      Vearynope- Stay
      WBDaddy - Abnomination
      Selv14 - Boo!
      Cute-Kitten - The Witch's brew
      ludib - The Fourth Roommate
      Les Lea - Mike and Sally
      Write and Left- The new Wing
      Sasha Butters - Redeeming Clara and The Harvest Festival (I thought she was trying to mislead us when she guessed that WB Daddy wrote the Harvest festival.)

        Re: Guess the Authors

        Well, if we're posting our guesses, here are mine, annotated with notes on what turned out to be correct, what was wrong, and what the correct answers actually were. Considering that I didn't read two (and on hearing that Long Rifle was pegged for one of them, am glad I didn't), I think I did reasonably well.

        +ally - Don't Forget Your Costume
        +Cute-Kitten - Witch's Brew
        !Elibean - Babyward Baby Ward +Stay
        +Les Lea - Boo
        +ludib - The Fourth Roommate
        !Sasha Butters - Stay +Abomination
        !Selv14 +The New Wing
        !Vearynope - The New Wing +Babyward Baby Ward
        +WBDaddy - Mike and Sally
        +Write and Left - Redeeming Clara

                I'd actually been a bit shocked to hear people pegged me for writing two stories, since I thought it was relatively early that I said I hadn't even read the scaries. If I'm not even going to read something, then it would seem obvious that I wouldn't write something of the sort.

                    Well, you could have easily been lying.
                    Proof:

                    Further proof is that I only ever referred to my stories as singular. I suppose I could have just worded things so that it was ambiguous, but I don't know how sleuth-y people are around here. Even that might have given it away. So yeah, I kinda lied.


                    So here're my guesses.

                    Abomination - WBDaddy = Wrong
                    Witches Brew – Cute Kitten = Correct
                    Mike and Sally – Les Lea = Wrong
                    Don't Forget Your Costume – ally = Correct
                    Babyward Baby Ward – Vearynope = Correct (obviously)
                    The Harvest Festival – Vearynope = Correct (obviously)
                    Stay – SashaButters = Wrong
                    Boo! - Selv14 = Wrong
                    The New Wing – Elibean = Wrong
                    Redeeming Clara – Write and Left = Correct
                    The Fourth Roommate – ludib = Correct
                    I'll put a line-break anywhere, and you can't

                    stop me.

                      I certainly hope everyone got their own stories right!

                      I gave up on guessing early on as my schedule got busier but I remember guessing:

                      Boo - Les Lea
                      Witch's Brew and/or Mike and Sally - Cute Kitten
                      Redeeming Clara and/or The New Wing and/or The Fourth Roommate - Write and Left
                      The Harvest Festival and/or Stay - WBDaddy (in hindsight these were my worst guesses)
                      Babyward Baby Ward - Vearnope
                      Don't Forget Your Costume - ally

                      5 out of 10 (not counting the stories I didn't get around to guessing), and most of the authors wrote at least one of the stories I pegged to them, better than I thought I'd do.

                        I suppose I could have lied, but the thought never crossed my mind in this case.

                        Interesting how many people missed Les Lea's story. For me, it was obvious from the way it was arranged - once I actually read one or two of his stories, something I hadn't done in a long time.

                        When it came to guessing, I did have some advantage in that I didn't finalize my guesses and sent them in until just before the voting ended, so I had a bit more meta-information to work from.
