So hey, I guess now that Avatar Ladyfest reveals are up, I can reveal that I wrote Lessons, about an older Jinora and an original female character meeting while the former is at college.
And also to mention other entries in the exchange, that were all so good they put my effort to shame. I spent a good month reading all these entries, so fantastic was each one, but now I can break it down to the very best. Although many are still really long, but awesome for it!
I’ve already mentioned the great savor belonging to yourself written for me by pleonasm, but here are some more:
