The Big Reveal!  
Time for reveals! Click below to see who wrote/drew what - and then please continue to read and leave feedback! If you have not yet commented on your gift, please do - there is nothing worse than not hearing from your giftee!

You are now free to repost your fic and art wherever you choose. If we are hosting your fic off-site (anything over 12K!), please relocate your fic to somewhere more stable (your LJ, archive site, website) and provide us with the new link in a comment to this entry. We do not plan on keeping the server long-term, so in order that people can read your fic for years to come, relocation is key! Same goes for artists, who I'm sure will want to add their signatures to their pieces and post on their own archives, as well.

Thank you again to everyone, especially those mentioned in this post. We couldn't have done it without help! Would like to add a new thank you to kriken for doing my bidding today and helping me catch up on tagging the entries and plugging in who wrote/drew what into all the posts.

All done! Tara and I have had a ball doing this, though we also had some moments where we both were pulling our hair out! Because of that, I can definitely tell you ahead of time that we will be running a smaller, stricter fest next time!

We haven't decided on too many specifics, but we will definitely be keeping the size closer to that of that last fest, aiming for three posts a day instead of four. If you have done this fest more than once and have been a reliable participant, don't worry, you will have a reserved space. "Reliable" means you turned in clean, recipient-appropriate copy in good time, and we didn't have to kick your story back for multiple edits. This is most of our second/third timers. For the rest, we are still trying to figure out the logistics of running a lottery system.

But that's jumping the gun, eh? Sign-ups will be in August and we'll run the fest in December, just like this year. Those of you craving another H/D fest should check out hd_worldcup and hds_beltane in the meantime - they will be running in April and May, respectively. There should also be another round of hd_remix in the summer.

YAY OMG!! *\o/* *looks at list* Few surprises there.

I totally knew that my gift was from djinniyah, of course, because how could anyone not, but -- THANK YOU SO MUCH, djinniyah! It was truly a highlight of my holiday season and I came back to stare at it often. I still do ♥♥♥

And thanks to the mods for such a fabulous fest. :D :D

I just posted fic in my LJ, but I will comment back here with a link to my relocated fic later tonight. ♥

Thank you so much for running this fest, you two. ♥ You're both insanely awesome.

Also, thank you dragenphly, for my story. I AM STILL IN LOVE WITH IT. I have reread it no less that five times since it was posted. :"> I'm still in awe of how well you got my likes in there. ♥

Thank you so much for running this!

I haven't yet posted my fic elsewhere, but I'll drop a link here when I do.
The Infinite Gamelomonaaeren on January 6th, 2008 10:32 pm (UTC)
And THANK YOU ms_mindfunk! "Having a Bad Day" was one of the most interesting twists I've seen on creature!fic in a long time, and a very enjoyable story.

ooh, so many excellent surprises in this list! thank you for such a stellar round of fics and art, dear writers and artists, and many thanks to the mods for putting it all together ♥.

This was a great fest! Thanks to the mods, writers, artists and helpers for making it happen -- I really enjoyed reading along. :-)

We haven't decided on too many specifics, but we will definitely be keeping the size closer to that of that last fest, aiming for three posts a day instead of four.

I'm kinda happy about this -- it was almost impossible to keep up with four a day, and often I found myself skimming, or not giving fics as much of a chance as I normally might have before hitting the back button.

This fest was lovely! Very excited for the next one of the near future!
Sarah: H/Dmorganmuffle on January 6th, 2008 10:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm not entirely sure how most fest-mods get to Christmas without going entirely mad *g*

There was a lot of incredible fic and art this year, and now there's a list I can go back and read the ones I missed first time round which is always lovely!
dita pparlophone on January 6th, 2008 10:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much to you both, NQ Donne and Taradiane, and all the authors & artists for an absolutely fantastic fest!

The quality of the work produced was simply outstanding, and I feel *so* spoiled that there are still lots of fics I have not yet had time to read.

I sucked to an astonishing degree at guessing the authors. I did guess Mahaliem's wonderful story. That was the only one I got right!

Some of my favourite fics in the fest turned out to be by writers that I am not v familiar with.
This imo, is a fantabulous discovery!

I'm hoping to be part of the next round. Maybe I can be the first to sign up on that day. hehehe. I had lots of fun and you guys were awesome. I've never had so much fun before. Great work you two. *hugs*

And thank you, sassy_cissa for my lovely story. I enjoyed it very much.

*hugs all*

Thank you! It's been a wonderful fest, as it was last time :-) Thanks for your patience and dedication and for not killing anyone in frustration ;-)

You rock!

I had a blast reading and seeing all the gifts, it was truly a nice way to spend the month :)
I participated as a commenter and I see now I have to read a lot more of this wonderful stories.
THank you to the writers, the artists and the mods for doing such a wonderful job.

I would just like to say that this was my very first fest, and it was simply amazing!

Thank you, a million times, thank you to the wonderful mods!

And I couldn't be more grateful to kayladie for such an amazing story!

I look forward to next year's fest with much anticipation!
gurliemoviegeek on January 7th, 2008 02:48 pm (UTC)
Just wanted to add the archive link for Hope For Us All!

Thanks again!
Pimea Feenixdark0feenix on January 6th, 2008 11:02 pm (UTC)
Thank you for such an amazing fest! Yet again excellently organized.

I'm all for less fics/art per day. 4 was unfortunately too much for me to keep up with so I'll be reading these stories for quite a while still. Which isn't actually that bad a fate. ;)
shadowclubshadowclub on January 6th, 2008 11:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks for running such a wonderful fest AND helping me out when I had beta issues (I've now contracted an HP person to edit for me). I'm really sorry for causing more stress for you guys!

Thank you to khateh for my lovely fic!

*dashes off to read more*
switch_heart: DracoHarryswitch_heart on January 6th, 2008 11:31 pm (UTC)
Wonderful job to all of the artists and writers that made this fest amazing!

=) It was always such a treat at work to come on and read and fawn over the various gifts. ( Although I think a lot of us "work readers" will get funny looks for WEEKS over the amount of crying in our cubicles that occurred)
jacked up on cheap champagnemizbean on January 6th, 2008 11:31 pm (UTC)
Thank you for everything. The fics I've read have been outstanding, and I really appreciate your hard work and patience.

AHHHH Thank you SO MUCH for this amazing experience! This was my first fest and it most definitely will not be my last.

The Most Unlikely of Places is now here!

glorafinglorafin on January 6th, 2008 11:37 pm (UTC)
I haven't yet read a single story in this fest, and only a handful in the previous batch. I'm (probably for good) overwhelmed by the sheer amount of work being published every day in fandom and have long stopped hoping to follow all of it in real time. Still, I must say that the number of fics and arts and the frantic reccing and squeeing it has generated in the past few weeks has given me new hopes for the survival of the Harry/Draco ship in a post-DH world. It was a job well done and I can't even begin to fathom all the work involved in getting it to run smoothly. Thanks to all concerned. I'm looking forward to make a dent in my reading in a few weeks' or months' time. :/
Cecileblonde_cecile on January 6th, 2008 11:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks to everybody who participated and put this together! This fest was awesome!
theauldalliance: chocolatetheauldalliance on January 6th, 2008 11:57 pm (UTC)
Thanks to all the authors for providing us readers with such excellent reading material over the past month (especially frayach who somehow managed to produced three fics!) and to all the mods for their hard work.
Casynne: Bare boy bumcasynne on January 6th, 2008 11:58 pm (UTC)
Wow. I stayed up until 2 a.m. to see this reveal, and I'm literally bouncing with glee. So many great fics, and such amazing fanart *stares greedily*

I especially wanted to know who wrote The Price We Pay For Wings and the Squib, and who drew that most astounding pic Loose Ends, so I can stalk them all :)

And I only guessed the artist of one drawing, Ferrets In Pipe Dreams, because of the distinct style. Loved that comic, btw.

Many, many thanks to all the lovely authors and artists who created those fantabulous works, and to the mods who run this amazing fest! You did a wonderful job *loves* ♥
