What do you think we should do?

This is almost the same thing that happened with SoulTaker's story a while ago. He wrote a story, and then you wrote a story and posted it afterwards that went against what he wanted to happen in his story. It's not fair that SoulTaker would be punished in that case, because he did nothing wrong. It was you that wrote the story after he wrote his (or in that case, posted your story after writing it and not telling anyone that you intended to post it). And in this case, I wrote a story, and you posted one after mine that really ruined continuity, after you said you had read mine. Then, over ICQ, you said that you didn't read mine. Who is to blame, here? Me? I posted my story yesterday.

The important thing to remember is that it's not fair to others if you don't accept that you might need to rewrite or repost a story with modifications. It's important to know when to accept responsibility for what happened, and in this case, you are the one that is responsible. There's no way around it. It's not such a big deal, but heck, just arguing over it won't change that. It just comes accross as whining (no offense intended, of course). In both cases, you wrote a story that contradicted one written before it, and that's not really fair to anyone else that we count your story at the expense of their stories.
