I'll try again!
but i don't think i can ever love someone
who doesn't understand that teal
is a different color than dark cyan.

I won't be participating in the next three weeks but after that, I'll become a recurring participant.

Also- stupid question, but did the time code work for you all? I saw it as this round ends on September 7th 5:30 am. But it ended on the 9th.

The time code seems to work for me! And I’ll keep going as a recurring participant.
Have a good day.

@TheWeirdoFromBeyond - yeah, the time code was my fault, it was showing the correct time but not the correct date. I'll fix it for next week.

Pairings will be up soon!

I'm really sorry about how late I was with this, I need to set myself more reminders to actually start this thing every week. (Thanks to @concord for reminding me.) Reviews will be counted from the whole week, as if the duels had started on time. Consider this your mid-week reminder as well, I guess. :P

Awesome! Thanks, Mea! I forgot about the review prize! :D

Since this only has one review so far, would you mind reviewing this? for lack of water

And I'll keep participating for the duration of RevMo. :)

@WritingPrincess - 0 vs @zaminami - 1

@concord - 18 vs @alliyah - 9 vs @Mea - 15


That was a close one, but it looks like concord is indeed the winner of our Grand Duel! They shall receive, as a grand prize, 4000 points and (another) review from me! Congratulations!

As a losing participant who wrote at least 5 reviews, alliyah will receive 200 points. As the winners of their respective duels, elysian will receive 800 points, and zaminami will receive 200 points.

Sign-ups for Week Nine are open! In the last week of RevMo, who will charge for the goal?

(Note: Week Nine might very well be the last week of this contest for at least a few weeks. Interest is waning, and I'm probably going to take a step back from the site as a whole in October anyway. Hopefully a pause will let everyone relax and recharge a bit, particularly after RevMo.)

You both did really well, and I admit, I was a little nervous there XD Colored usernames do wonders to motivate reviews, huh? That was a very fun round :D

And, I guess I'd like a review on The Crew 1.1 please! It's pretty rough cause I've typed it up the past couple of days, but I'd appreciate any kind of feedback :)
