Whoa. Apparently I've picked up something like thirty-plus new readers since I started the "fight scenes" sequence of posts.
Hi, all! And welcome! This has actually put me up over five hundred readers, which is a nice little landmark; I feel like I should do something to celebrate it. Like giving away prizes.
As near as I can tell, alpheratz, you're Reader No. 500, so you win! And so does everywherestars, chosen by the highly scientific expedient of pulling up my profile, closing my eyes, and sticking the eraser end of a pencil randomly at my screen. E-mail me at marie [dot] brennan [at] gmail [dot] com, and I'll give you a selection of prizes from my Box O' Books And Other Things I've Written.
(I know that not all of the 517 readers I currently have are necessarily still reading LJ, so if I don't hear back from everywherestars, I'll pick another recipient.)
BTW, I mentioned this to alpheratz in comments, but if you've read the entirety of the Lymond Chronicles and want onto the filter wherein I've been book-blogging the series (mostly just The Game of Kings so far), leave a note here. That particular project is on hiatus, but I have no objection to comments on old posts, so new readers are always welcome.
