It pains me to admit that I can't finish Another Origins in one sitting, but it's true. I've been trudging through it, but it's a beast - very long.

If you want me to summarize up what I've gotten read so far, I'd be happy to - after all, a summary is just a teaser, right? Not the entire story summed up. Then you'd just read the summaries and not the stories.

Exactly. ^_^

Summarize it from what you've read already, that's okay. I did the same for Blood Diary.
Since both are from A-F, I expect the style to be similar to Blood Diary. In that case the intent of the story and the genre should be pretty clear from the start and not changing much within the story.

One of which is part of my old assignment list... OTL. Geez, I'm slow -_-

In any case, I just sent in a summary for #71, meaning that there's one left to summarize: #63, Valesta's Thought's End. Home stretch time!

Wonderful work everyone. We've got all summaries now. \(^_^)/

I'll make the final list with Ruro today, so look forward to seeing the results of your work tomorrow everyone (unless something unexpected happens).

See ya going to write a crappy half page story now.

Good job all of you. It must have taken some amount of work to read all those stories.

Well done, everyone. This board is made more awesome by your efforts.

As much as we appreciate all of your sentiments, have a bit of patience until we can show the results.  :V
After that you're free to celebrate the Librarian Squad as much as you want  :D

Says me?  I'm not talking too much about quality here (although I hold no illusions there) but I suck at quantity of writing.  When I have writer's block, it sometimes takes me a month to get a paragraph out. 

So, are you guys going to start posting the reviews?  I'd like to see what you've been up to.

Just gotta find your muse, is all. I sit down and listen to some music, and the ideas just start comin' along. Whatever does it for you, if you wanna write, sit down and enjoy yourself and your inspiration. Friend of mine plays games to get his inspiration (although he doesn't write much to begin with).

Oh, well, y'see, after much deliberation, us Librarians decided that only Librarians can see the summaries. You'll have to apply and pay dues and stuff if you wanna read -

AWESOME.

Drat, I should have written something new for this.  Something that wasn't based on spam emails.  Oh well, I've still got some good imageboard reposts with me...

And Three Days bright is listed as Incomplete?  Is that a comment or a request?

Right then, let me clarify some stuff now that the initial exhilaration is over~

- The "length" category was struck out. I didn't much like the idea of people avoiding the "long" ones for that reason. The lengths were for us summarizers in the first place, to share work evenly when making the assignments.
- The "status" category still needs some hammering and standardizing.
- As to Gpop's question: Yes, the summaries will change as needed. That's why the Librarian usergroup exists. They're responsible for the maintenance of the Fanworks Listing now. :3
- Short stories had a much bigger chance of being seen as "incomplete", depending on the summarizer. We'll work on standardizing that later.
- Jan: Shanikusai is a monster of a translation project, you've just translated the first chapter. Still, since that's all Kira.Lu has posted, it's technically complete. My bad.

Awesome job, all~ Grats on the victory!
