** Originally posted September 19th, 2011 ** First official wordy page of the new chapter! We get to see the school and you old time Shifters readers should be getting a pretty strong idea of where things are going now. Regarding the costume contest, there WAS a winner selected, but I have kept the winner a secret as I do not want to give away who’s suggestion for the costumes won as I’d like it to be a surprise. The winner has been notified and will appear in the upcoming pages. Although if you entered the contest, and didn’t get a notification, please don’t spread it around so people can figure out who won and spoil the surprise. We got some very amusing submissions for the caption contest (or at least I thought they were funny…) and some are available to see in the forums for the moment. A few will be posted with the rest to a special gallery soon. I’ve just been kind of crazy preparing for Vcon here on Sept 30-Oct 2, in Vancouver. Enjoy the update.

I didn’t realize back then how invaluable the setting of it was for character establishment and exposition. Well none of that glancing over shall happen THIS time. If you can still stomach facebook since all the UI changes, we have a facebook page you can like. HOWEVER if you are more into Google+ these days, you can follow me on there for updates (email@example.com is my email addy, you can also search me under Marie Tary). I’m trying to use it more. If you need an invite, don’t be afraid to hit me up for one. Its MUCH better than facebook in many respects ATM, especially in light of the new UI changes to FB. PLEASE though, shoot me a note if you follow me to one of my posts either a shifters update or one of my posts asking people to ID themselves so I can put you in the right circle.
