Good blog, Squidge. Even though we have the Den now, losing the Cloud will leave a huge hole. It didn’t really hit me at first, as we’d been preparing ourselves for some time, and there were the preparations for the Den to take our minds off things a bit. But it’s only now, partly thanks to your blog, that I’m starting to see how much has been lost. Things like the monthly competitions – they don’t mean much in the scheme of things, but they were a good example of the collective spirit of the Cloud. It was really nice to see how people’s flash fic skills developed. Fitting but also sad that the last ever comp set, and which will never be finished, was on the theme of ‘endings’.
