    Re: Guess the Authors

    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.

    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'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:

    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.)
    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

    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

    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, 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

    I'll have to post the final list proper here in a bit, but the bot just notified me it has made the last 2 reveals. Which for Ally's info, included your story

    The other was Cute-kitten's

    In hindsight I could have programmed the bot to post the list LOL! Oh well, too late now

    Then I'll give you a holler if I get any last minute guesses that I'm not sure of.

    Glad to hear something is working out for you.

    As for any last minute guessers, I'll accept as valid any guess received before the last time I know my story hasn't been officially revealed. That might be a bit random depending on when I happen to check the page, though. For those who have guessed, I'll let you know as soon as my story is officially named.
    I can tell you the exact time it happens. The bot is doing the reveals randomly, but it logs the time it reveals each one
