Considering the latest changes in LJ, would you want to:

Keep XMMF solely on LJ
Move XMMF solely to DW
Have mirrored communities on both sites

And this concludes xmmficathon2011!

Here is the masterlist for this year: http://xmmficathon.livejournal.com/98949.html

Be sure and thank your author, and the other authors for their time, efforts, and art. Special thanks goes to our pinch hitters this year: lorax, aphrodite_mine, renata_kedavra, and st_aurafina (x2!!!)

If you were a member of regular sign ups who didn't receive a story, and DIDN'T write one, this means that your writer also dropped. If you were a member of regular sign ups, wrote a story, and didn't receive one, please contact me as soon as possible and I'll rectify this.

PLEASE take a moment and drop some feedback for your author. Thanks for another great year, folks.

Thanks also to aphrodite_mine for suggesting the title, taken from this Winston Churchill quotation: "A man does what he must - in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures - and that is the basis of all human morality." (Erik would undoubtedly alter it to read "mutant morality.")
