We'd like to thank all of the authors who participated, both for allowing their stories to be remixed and for taking the chance of remixing the stories of others-- which can be rather daunting on both counts! And we'd also like to thank our pinch-hitters and betas as well!
We hope you will check out all of the remixed stories, and if you've not read them before, you might also want to check out the stories that inspired them as well! If you enjoy the stories, please let the authors know how much!
