No Limits

The season finale of ats_nolimits went up last night. (No, the status of any future episodes or related projects hasn't been decided yet.) It's called Feileacan, it's by thebratqueen, and it contains the most I'llbeinmybunk scene of the entire series, for me. (Though Kita's debauched-Anna-Karenina Spike runs a very close second).

I'm still all limbo-y about the season. One moment dancedancedance oh god it's over! One moment wow, that was over a year of my life, and it's over. No project responsibilities hanging over my head is wonderful and weird (and my brain still doesn't really track the concept - I'm still antsy even though there's nothing to be antsy about); no new episode to look forward to is disconcerting and weird. (And if I'm feeling this, it's got to be only a 10th of the level of what flaming_muse, justhuman, and thebratqueen are experiencing, given the levels of constant organizational insanity they've been working at.)

I'm really, really impressed with the project, though, and everyone who contributed to it. I'm not talking about the literary quality of the season itself -- I am impressed with that, but dude, involved in the thing, obviously extremely biased -- but the fact that we all worked together to get this thing completed, and we did complete it. Didn't lose interest, didn't fall apart due to external or internal anything, didn't let it fade away and die and whistle whenever anybody brought it up. (*looks around at own list of stalled WIPs and dropped RPGs; whistles*)

We survived fannish drift, falls down staircases, car accidents, colds from hell, marriages, moves, the intermittent overwhelming desire to kill each other and/or blow up the world, readers who thought it was too gay, readers who thought it wasn't gay enough, global warming and the astronomically skyrocketing prices of tea and quaaludes in the past year and a half.

We had writers, editors, vidders, graphic and web designers, researchers for both canon and real-world info - - even a location-scout in magelette, all working together. We had readers who kept us going just by being interested and enthusiastic and not killing us for long hiatuses or the times when our other writing projects took a back-seat to the virtual season. We had friends and family members who also didn't kill us when we whined and screamed and talked out plots with them and then complained that it wouldn't work and OMG I hate everything and everyone and I want ice cream Right Now. *waves to maeyan*

And it's done. Whatever else happens in that universe, we made a whole season of fake TV.

In conclusion... uh. I love you guys? Also, muffins.

*smells them*
