50 Reasons celebration! <3  
Today [livejournal.com profile] gracerene posted the the last instalment in her 50 Reasons to Have Sex Series (or here at AO3) and in a way it almost feels like the end of an era.

First off, I cannot believe how naughty she is! :D I think of Grace, super organised and efficient and she's written some of the dirtiest stuff ever. *glee* I remember back when Grace mentioned she had this idea for a series two years ago, and I offered, in case she needed an extra pair of eyes, to Alpha read for her. She took me on that offer and from then on it's been a journey.

I've pre-read 90/95% of the Reasons – she did manage to surprise me a couple of times when she wrote me a reason for my birthday and then again after I was sick – and I've loved being part of this.

I'm so proud of having been there to see her do this. I've seen her grow as a writer; trying different pairs, she's such a prolific and diverse writer. I've seen her challenge herself and write angsty stuff, funny stuff, epic stories, and always with a touch of absolute filth in the best ways.

I'm thrilled she ~finished this chapter in her writer life. There's the tiniest bit of bittersweetness, because I will miss the series and the regular posts with Reasons so damn much, but it's mostly pride and happiness because OH MY GOD, she gave us so much happy times with each post. I mean, there have been 50 Reasons to Have Sex posts!

Of course, I don't mean literally finished this chapter, because in case you missed it, she has a post up asking for people to prompt her a new reason or request to continue certain reasons. It's right over HERE. :D

[livejournal.com profile] gracerene, congratulations, lovely! Thank you for letting me part of this. I know it all started as fun, but the friendship all the Reasons gave us, is one of the greatest gifts. <3

Oh my goodness, you!!! You did say you were going to get embarrassingly mushy on me, but this just put the biggest smile on my face!

I know I've told you this a ton, but I really couldn't have done it without your cheerleading, pre-reading, encouragement, and enthusiasm! I was so nervous and unsure about these little ficlets and whether or not they should see the light of day, and I can't begin to tell you how much it's meant to me to have your unwavering support!

I seriously couldn't have picked a more amazing person to help me with this series! You are the actual best, lovely!

And I know I've told you just as many times that I've loved being there for you, with this and with all your stories. ♥ Thank you for trusting me. *HUGS*

Such a lovely post and such an awesome achievement on Grace's part. A real treat for us all. I'm so impressed with the hard work, organisation and super writing.

As Birds says, hear, hear to all of this.
