Wah! Wah! Allow me to say "I told you so. And you can check, but I am positive I also mentioned the DeccHrld!"

(Also allow me to also treat this as a good omen for me - Ms. LC had better be around the corner).

When are we going to see the story - i.e. when is it likely to be published? Some advance warning(!) would be good.

Now why is *your* news making *me* happy?!

usually with a good friend I'd put a terribly cynical comment but since its a public forum which has ample scope for misunderstanding Im going to say a simple CONGRATS shruthi!

It was just a matter of time. Congrats actually to the forces who pushed you into registering ur story! :)
