    Hmm... Seems fun... And and the deadline's a month and a half from now. Plenty of time for me to get off my ass and do something (I need a LOT of time for that).

    Well, damn. This sounds really fun. Only two things stopping me:

    - I've only played PSOBB, and not for probably more than 50 hours total. Not exactly enough to turn into an interesting recollection of sorts.

    - I would also have to get over my terrible, lingering fear of sharing my writing with others. Hell, I've had a couple of fan fictions on this site, but ended up wiping the threads of my posts.

    So PSU/PSP is included in that, or no?

    Well, it's PSO's 10th anniversary, so no. Wouldn't make sense.

    Yeah, it'd be kinda strange to be awarded an Elenor or Shino model kit for a PSU work.

    Oh no....oh my....I will seriously have to set some time aside. Though narrowing everything down to just one or two instances of nostalgia will be difficult.

    Its only for PSO content, no PSU, PSP, PS0, PSP2i.
