Dear J. Li,

I just read one of your stories, the Sha Po Lang, and I feel I have leagues to learn from you. Would you like a swap by chance, my A Nice Psychedelic Moment with any work of your choice? It would be a great honor, as I feel my humble writing would benefit a great deal from your review.

Hey! I saw you were Featured, and more importantly... I saw your old username on your covers, ThePhoenixRising. Unless there was another one, I remember you! I'm an old user, my name was Carian on here. Just wanted to say that it's nice to see an oldie here doing so well :) Have a nice day!
