So I volunteered to collect the exchanges into a single document—this one. I’ve tried to keep the text as exact as it was originally typed in the emails, but I have taken the liberty to correct spelling and punctuation here and there. I’ve also tried to keep things in chronological sequence, but sometimes the threads got a little confusing, so I just guessed at the order in a few places. As Dan pointed out, after reading the first draft, it’s a little difficult to follow the thread sometimes, so I’ve inserted some remarks (enclosed in brackets) in a few places to try to put back some of what gets lost when you transcribe this kind of thing. This is a work-in-progress – I’ll follow it as long as it lasts, maintaining this document.
Keep the stories coming, everyone…this could become quite a collection!

NOTE: The story page has become too big to load! We had to resort to chapters. The stories are still in the same order and the story locator continues to be a great way to navigate.
