I love my job. Heh.
Near misses, no matter how kewl or how close, are still misses, so the little flash got sent out again to an actual print magazine. I had a wonderful, grinchy idea in regard to this story, so if it misses again, I may have to do evil unto it. I like the story the way it is, so I'm reluctant to play with it, but at the same time I think the idea is sound, so another rejection will be my excuse to open up that file and open up new scenes. Sadly, once that happens, it will never be a flash again.
