Was there a chose your story title "Snow"? I forgot who was the author. Perhaps it was Sethaniel?
What ever happend to that story? I can't seem to find it in search or anywhere. It was a masterpeice.
If I recall, its a love story told mostly through flashback and memories. It was kind of sad with a Yuki-onna (Snow Woman Spirit) twist.
The author was a snake oil salesman.
He was actually begging for money for his game/surgery a little before the Kiel shit blew up. He still wasn't posting that much anymore by then though.
