For the record, my involvement in the Team Nevermind story was actually pretty minimal. I nudged some of Ilraen's and Nume's lines a bit, but beyond that it's all Phobos' writing.
I was thoroughly involved with Team Blast Hardcheese, and yeah, that is the name—I'm told it's a reference to an MST3K episode, and is reputedly the most stereotypically manly name possible in the English language. Not my first choice, but it's grown on me. It fits the group of characters pretty well. *g*
We all basically came up with the framework for the story together, and the idea was for everyone to fill in bits for their characters and I'd smooth it out and give it an editing polish. It mostly went to plan, but I came up against the deadline and didn't have as much to work with for Noir and Saline, and PoorCynic helped me stop panicking and we put together the ending at the last minute. So, that's why some folks got more screen time than others. Given a bajillion more hours and no scheduling conflicts, I'd have liked to get all the characters interacting with each other, but so it goes.

Team Nevermind- I like this type of team up, a bunch of people who go into something with no (or in some cases, BAD) ideas of what they are doing. Makes for a good read/watch in stuff. I liked how... more
I love that all four stories take very different paths to reach the point of six (or seven) united characters. I was a little skeptical of what this would be like at first, but now I'm glad I decided ... more
It does tend to go turn and turnabout - as she said, Earwig was brilliant at first but fell flat towards the end (that 'Oh by the way random people please join' line in particular), while the last... more
