I have sent 2 PMs to preromantics [3 weeks ago and 2 weeks ago, respectively] and also sent an email to the "official" email addy for the challenge a week ago, but have received no responses whatsoever.
Perhaps someone here will be able to answer my question, or at least make an attempt at resolving this issue for me.
Below is what I asked in all three of my previous attempts to get an answer.
Just checking to see what the status is on the remaining stories that haven't been posted for the challenge.
I worked really hard on my story and was hoping to get one in return, but apparently the author that got me for an assignment has chosen not to post a story for whatever reasons.
Are there any plans for pinch hitters? Of do I chalk this up to yet another challenge where I do what I'm supposed to and get nothing in return?
I don't mean to sound bitchy, but this has happened to me a few too many times for me to just take it in stride any longer.
Any information would be greatly appreciated...
Again, if something IRL has happened for the author that got me as an assignment, something that is out of their control, I can completely understand that, but a head's up would be nice. If it's "simply" a matter of said author dropping out, what is the status, if any, of the pinch hit? We're at nearly a month after the challenge was supposed to end, and there are like 11 people who haven't posted their stories yet. So does that mean that 11 of us just don't get anything at all?
If the end result is a case of "Too bad, sucks to be you for not getting a story", just please say something to that effect, so I can stop hoping I'll actually get what I signed up for.
