This is a bit belated, but I'm glad my entry got such recognition despite failing to make it into the story. If I still possessed the motivation and time for such a commitment, I would certainly take up a writing project involving Rey. I have other projects, school-related and otherwise, that require my attention.
ChaosBlizzard, if this project is something that you truly enjoy doing, don't stop. I want to see this story completed someday. I can see that you've put a tremendous amount of effort into writing and I would hate to see it go to waste. I rarely visit these forums any more, but hopefully I'll be able to see this story in its entirety eventually.
