Your story was a bit too long to be a ZapFic. I reblogged and upvoted it anyway. Let me know if you edit it down to 240 characters or less.

Thanks for the info.
I just edited my post

This is the third week in a row that you have submitted a story that is too long. Please can you check that your story is 240 characters or less before submitting it next week

I'll do that next time
