Cuddles patch?
I mentioned that timeframe as a point of interest about 30 pages back Tatile, but most people missed it... ah well

Thanks for that. It bears repeating, over and over again.

Well, if you'd look out my window right now.... fog and icy cold rain. The actual end of the world couldn't be worse.

Especially when it comes to sexual orientation, since it's not even a choice. Good luck in your endeavors guys and gals! Happy yule/christmas/kwanza/hannukah/whatever else i forgot.
Thanks! I wish we could go into the next year with some good news at hand.

As to the DarthRamette convo, no offense Darth, but I simply ignore her since nothing she has to say on this topic is of any interest for me. And that's not even a lie. It just isn't.

Only if they know enough people to justify the cost of development, so several thousand at least.

I was disappointed that it wasn't the end of the world. I'm in a lot of pain right now.

I just keep wondering one thing....why do they think that writing romances for same-gender couples is harder or more delicate than writing them for opposite-gender couples. That seems to swirl around a lot of the excuses for why we haven't seen them yet.

I've been completely outed to the world under this handle. I think a low profile from me is merited for a bit...

Aye, thank you to both sites!

I did make sure that swtorstrategies got a working link of the Gabe video.

Continue telling the press guys. They're not only listening, but the story is getting picked up.

Don't give up.


Edit: I've been bookmarking all the sites that have written and/or spoken about this as we go. I'll be working on updating the FAQ after Christmas.

Edit #2: They used a ton of my letter for that article. I'm not offended (I'm flattered,) but it was weird to see my words in print.

In case anyone is curious, I can send/post the original version of my letter that I sent out to them and other members of the press on December 6th-8th. Just let me know.
