Small announcement ...

A first contact fantasy story (coincidentally entitlted "First Contact") of mine placed in the fantasy-writers.org monthly Writer's Challenge: http://www.fantasy-writers.org/

First Contact was a deliberate attempt by me to play with synesthesia. Since the character has never been allowed to touch or come into contact with anything save a small number of purified, sanctified items (hence the title), her first experiences with the sense of touch come in metaphors of the other senses.

It was, to be less hoity-toity about it, a lot of fun.

Is there an archive where one can find this story, or am I banking solely on the good graces of the author and my email address?

The stories are members-only for various reasons, but I have Graces locked in my closet along with Hours and Muses ... err. In other words, I could send. *cough*

What about Fates? Do you have Fates (my past interpretations aside)?
