The reveal!

And now for the last piece. XD

Stories and authorsCollapse )

The winner of the game is harajukufuuri with a score of 55%, or 6/11 correct guesses (for the writers, I scored on 10 or 11 depending on how many stories you wrote, since guessing yourself doesn't count). Runners up are gisho with 5/10 correct guesses, and amethyst_hunter with 5/11 correct guesses. Congratulations all!

Feel free to exclaim here regarding how you thought your story was going to be obvious, and how hard the guessing was otherwise. XD

Guessing deadline (reminder)

Hi everyone-- please remember that the deadline for submitting guesses as to who wrote what story is December 5, in two days' time! Comment with your guesses here, with your regular LJ. You don't have to be a writer or a member of the comm to participate.

In case anyone is still wondering, you can give c&c and praise on the story posts as well. *g* But if you DID write one of the stories, please comment anonymously so as not to give the game away.

Guessing post

All stories have been posted to the comm! There are twelve stories, and ten authors who submitted (i.e. two writers turned in two stories each). Congratulations and thanks to everyone. ^^

List of authorsCollapse )

List of storiesCollapse )

Guessing guidelines:

The stories have been posted with an attached ID (the name of a GetBackers character). Please leave your guesses as comments to this post in the following format:

ID1: writer 1's LJ name
ID2: writer 2's LJ name
...

You don't need to guess all the stories, only the ones you can figure out. Please try to leave your guesses as a list in one comment, just to make it easier, but you can comment again if you come up with additional guesses or change your mind. However, you can only guess one writer per story (and make sure it's one from the list of included authors above *g*). All comments have been screened. You do not have to be a member of this community in order to guess.

Note: PLEASE LEAVE GUESSES ON THIS POST ONLY, not on the stories themselves! Also, guess with your regular LJ, not anonymously, so we can track which guesses belong to whom (there will be a winner at the end).

The deadline for guessing is: December 5, 2007, 11:59PM EST

Authors: please do not reveal your identities until guessing is over! That includes responding to feedback on the stories (you can respond anonymously). EDIT -- It would've helped if I'd enabled anonymous commenting! ^^; It's good to go now.

[Lucifer] Then And Now

 
He remembered the last time they’d spoken.

He’d offered her food and drink as was customary; she’d accepted but refused to dally over them. “Pierre,” she’d said in that sensuous voice, “you ought to reconsider. There is a reason Time is divided into separate entities – past, present, and future. You insist on living by the doctrines of the past, when you do not take to heart the lessons it offers you at present for the future.”

[Sakura] Inside And Out

 
Ban said he didn't believe he and Ginji could've run up a 3,000,000-yen tab at the Honky Tonk, but the fact of it was he had no idea. Paul kept the books and could have been screwing with them for all he knew, but Paul also fed them on credit. It was better not to inquire too closely. During long dark nights of the soul he could admit that when the money went toward food it generally went fast. Legwork burnt calories, they slept like logs huddled in the winter and sprawled during the summer, and dreamt of protein with tiresome persistence.

[Saizou] What Now, Mr. Left?

 
Sparkles of stars that are demon dust rise from a steady palm, coalescing into a shard of reflective glass in the shroud of nighttime.

The moon has rediscovered the joy of playing hide-and-seek with its cloud companions. In a corner of Shinjuku, a neat row of poorly-maintained lamps is the only source of illumination for a street sandwiched between two clusters of drab apartment buildings.

[Kirihito] Eurydice

 
"What are you doing here?" Juubei said, and Toshiki should have been pleased to see Juubei as surprised as he was. Should have seen this coming, even so. The hallway seemed very large and dusty, and the doors of the young king's sanctuary were closed tight and silent.

Kazuki smiled.

[Amon] Domestication

 
It is during afternoons like this, hot and sticky, that Ginji just sits and lets the air from the air conditioning unit pass over him, back against the cool walls of their small bedroom; Ban is rarely in when they’re not working, but when he is back in their apartment he is usually at the window – Ban-chan’s living room window, Ginji thinks, because Ban is there so often, perched on a three-legged stool they salvaged on one of their more recent jobs – taking long drags on Marlboros and looking out. Sometimes Ginji falls asleep and it is night when Ban comes back with dinner, or sometimes Ban comes back earlier and Ginji wakes up to the sound of Ban cooking, and the smell of food, but they have electricity now and Ginji can fall asleep on hot afternoons while waiting for Ban to come back, if he remembers to turn the air-conditioning on properly before he does.

[Yuuri] Shogatsu

 
“Those two were best friends, long before they came to Infinite Castle.”

-O-

Golden rays of sunlight shone from the clear azure sky, gently warming the compounds of the Japanese shrine. A wintry breeze picked up, winding languidly around the visitors to the shrine as they strolled into the ancient structure to pray for a good year ahead.

[Maiya] Enemies Under Truce

 
To the casual observer Midou Ban and Dr Jackal were enemies under truce.

The casual observer was right. Almost.

Whatever their relationship was, it was not love.
