I used that poem to start their love affair, so I used it to end it as well. Endless thanks to my betas calleigh_j and innerslytherin, I couldn’t have done it without you. Extra special thanks to twinsfan33 for the amazing art and reminding me that people can come through in a crunch.

Due to some unforeseen circumstances and other circumstances that I should have done more about, the BAU Big Bang website will not be going ahead. This is down to a lack of communication and organisation on my part, and I really want to apologise to everyone for it.
Instead, we will be asking authors to post their stories and/or links in the comm and will draw them all together in a masterlist at the end of the fest. I'm so sorry to have messed you around, and for any stress caused as a result. Authors and artists should now have their posting schedule, and hopefully everyone will enjoy reading the stories and admiring the art work starting later in the week.
I'm so sorry again for any inconvenience, and we're looking forward to seeing everyone's work very soon. Watch this space!
