…let’s celebrate birthday month in style today. by Vampiric Blood

Summary:

The writers who post stories on the MTT archive are blessed with many wonderful reader/reviewers.  We thrive on the feedback that you give us.  We receive no payment for the hours we spend writing, revising, doing beta reviews for other writers.  Most of us hold our breath a bit as we click the submit button and watch our story post to the Most Recent page.  And we wait for reviews, for that feedback that tells us whether or not we got it right.  Unless you’ve posted a story, there’s no way to describe how nerve-wracking it is to watch the read count go up, up, up with no reviews.

So readers who take the time to give us feedback are near and dear to our hearts.  Among the nearest and dearest is NanReg.  Nancy is not only one of the most prolific reviewers on the archive, she also makes a point of leaving meaningful reviews.  She nearly always takes the time to point out very specifically the passages that spoke to her … that were spot on in character … funny … sad … sexy (she LOVES sexy!) 

Nancy is like a one-woman MTT Welcome Wagon.  She encourages first time posters to continue to explore this new avocation.  Even though her profile says she’s not a beta reader, she has done so for several authors, especially new ones who are too intimidated to ask an “established writer” to read their work.

Nancy reaches out to writers directly by PMing them in addition to leaving reviews on their stories.  Sometimes to say something that might be too personal to leave in a public review.  Sometimes to send a hopeful kick in the pants to get a story going again.  Sometimes just to say, “Hey.”

As I look at what I’ve written, it sort of falls flat.  It’s hard to explain in a few words all Nancy does that endears her to MTT authors.  Suffice it to say she’s the captain of the cheerleading squad and we love her.

A few months ago, Nancy let slip on the message boards that May 1st is her birthday.  So, as a thank you to her for her unfailing support over the years, a bunch of us have written a birthday story in her honor.  In fact, a number of authors have “come out of retirement” to add a story to this series – what a testament to the regard they have for her! 


So far, twenty-four authors have volunteered to write a story for Nancy!  Unless “real life” interferes (as it sometimes does!) here is the list of the authors who are posting stories in this series:
 
andtheivy                            Annabel Winslow                             Beeswax
bkwrm                                Carbondalien                                   Deedldee
GodinthisChilis                     Guten Tag                                      JAMhands
Jazzfan                               JHalpert                                         lovefool
MilkandSugar                       Mr Bill                                             nomadshan
Nqlisi                                            Shootingstars
Stablergirl                            Steph                                             Sweetpea
Vampiric Blood                    Wendolf                                          Yanana
 

So, Nancy … a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY and THANK YOU from all of us to you!

Summary: This story takes place in October of Season 3, between Grief Counseling and The Initiation – deep in the heart of angst country. In one of my previous fics (I think it was Sheet Music), I put forth some rationale for why I thought Jim’s birthday was in October (like JK’s), so I’m going to continue with that assumption. Hope you all enjoy. Comments are always, always, ALWAYS most welcome!
