Great read! Thank you, @sophia and @manonamora , for this glimpse into your minds.

Yay! I’m so happy this is up- I had a great time with Manon, and working with Mike as our primary editor was fantastic. Both of them are lovely people, and I thoroughly enjoyed the process of putting together this interview. If anyone’s thinking about pitching an article, or submitting a finished piece- I’d encourage you to definitely do so! The submission process was super straightforward, and it was a blast.

Manon is one of my dearest friends, and it has been both an honour and a pleasure to both foster the Neo-Interactives space with her, and simply to enjoy her company- in or outside of our TTRPG campaigns. I’m very lucky to be a part of her life, and I’m glad for it. She’s very sweet, and her companionship means a lot to me. I love her lots.

As for IF- well, that’s okay too. :wink:

Yeah, that wasn’t me; I doubt I could have pulled off writing that. But I dropped this post last-minute as I was heading off to do something else and didn’t stop to ask how/if Kit wanted to be credited, oops!

Congratulations to Sophia, Manon, Kit and the rest of the team! Your efforts at making IF popular have not been in vain. “bringing new blood and new perspectives to the medium, building bridges between the different IF communities and IF forms…” - this is also my vision for what IF would be like for the new generation. I am thankful for having these people in this community, to explore behind the scenes of the monthly jams etc. This is who we are, and this will always be part of what we become.
