Passing the daily count challenge to slashluv18

ACK! I completely forgot to pass on or check who was up for the challenge after I did over 800 words on my day! But I am here now and since kaige will be asleep right now, I am using my 2nd-in-command Mod Hat to choose slashluv18 to take over from me!

YOU ARE ON! I need to get more words done myself (so proud of my 800+ from Monday, did I mention?), so I'm aiming to do some more tonight before I treat myself to the latest episode of Shadowhunters! ;-)
