Hey all lovely the Matches fans!

You may know that there’s a site called Mibba? (It’s also created by Dujo, who made GSB).
Mibba is a site where writers can post written work such as stories. It’s also possible to co-write stories.

Well, over at Mibba a friend and I have started a little project. It’s called "Shine For Us" and it’s going to be a
collection of one-shots written by several authors. This collection will eventually become a book.

Now, you are probably wondering where the heck I’m going with all this.
Glad you asked.

The collection (or book if you like) is written by fans for The Matches. It’s going to be handed to them once it’s
considered finished. So I’m just throwing this out here in case anyone of you would like to contribute. You’re
going to need an account on Mibba however. And if you don’t have a Mibba account, it’s very easy to just create one.
It’s free, and it’s a very nice site.

The one-shots can be a story about how The Matches have impacted you/your life (like this one-shot) or just more
of an encouraging message to them (akin to this piece). No fanfictional stories though.

Here’s some more info and the collection itself.

It’s, of course, entirely up to you if you want to contribute or not.

But with that said,
hopefully looking forward to have you onboard!

Shawn: Adopt you? I don't know if im ready to be a father

shawn: um, so..no. but,um,its not because i don't like you,its because im, like, scarcely older than you.I'd be like irresponsible,i'd forget to feed you
Sis: just give her a bag of cookies she'll be fine for a week
Shawn: yeah,i'd also fail to buy you then new nintendo
me: i don't need that much though,just like, music a comfy bed and cookies---and iced tea!
Shawn : my bed isn't even comfy---iced tea? you're picky
me: yeah,it has to be raspberry i don't drink anything else
Shawn: maybe i could be you're father-in-law....wait. what does that even mean? that means you'd have to marry...
sis: your son..?
Me: what's your sons name?
Shawn: i don't know, i gotta have one first. do you know any potential moms?

They just posted a bulletin on myspace omgno

It disarranges us to relay that our long-time bassist and friend, Justin San Souci, will be parting from the role of bassist in the Matches to pursue other lives and loves. He, however, will not be parting from the role of friend. Change is not an easy thing, but it does not stop until life does. Our hearts go out to Justin for being brave and true to his heart's pursuit.
