I'm delighted to kick off yagkyas 2011! Last year we had over forty people participate, and I am both enthused and mildly terrified to see if that gets topped this year! Signups start today, Monday, September 26th, and will run through Friday, October 21st.
Like last year, to celebrate and encourage people to participate, I'm going to toss up a few short stories here and there. You have no idea how difficult it was to keep from inserting a "Virginia is for lovers" joke in this one.
so vast the field
Notes: To celebrate the advent of yagkyas, a small Brad/Nate vignette. With grateful, yowling thanks to samjohnsson for being incomparable, and shoshannagold for being quick on the verb draw. Set post-series.
( Nate had never particularly sought happiness; he had always believed his destiny lay more in the realm of duty, in service, in something greater than himself. But he had found it nonetheless, here with Brad, here in the life they had built together. )
