If I've screwed anything up in the usernames/links, please let me know...it happens every damn year no matter how many people check my work beforehand, don't take it personally!

SO...who surprised you? It was interesting to go through the poll results and see how responses varied on stories like Packing the Flat (6 different authors!) and artwork like Slipping Away (5 different artists - even more impressive since art is usually a dead giveaway, haha)...favourite response came from ginger_veela who said that was *so* snegurochka_lee. :D - and yes, it was, because your guess was right. ;-) The artists received the most guesses (easy pickings, eh?), and it was amusing to watch the guesses on the last fic - the mpreg - getting changed from coffeejunkii (c'mon, with that header??) to me (taradiane - hey, I like mpreg, too!) as time went on.

All right, in terms of the new rules, what you read the other day is final as there were no objections to any of it (none that I saw, at least), but I would like to make one addition/clarification (helpfully pointed out by acromantular)... if you are one of those multi-talented folks who can both write and draw, and throw your name into the writer lottery and do not get selected, we would gladly take your art! You would need to tell us that that is your intention, as we won't assume otherwise, but you are more than welcome to change your 'talent' should my trusty excel not spit out your number as a writer.

Lastly, we want new icons! Artists, if you have contributed to the fest before, do we have permission to make icons from your work?

Okay, really really lastly, we close with this:







Until August 2011...
taradiane and dysonrules

To mods:
I don't know if you all are keeping track of recs, but I rec'd a fair few of the stories here at Rec Page 1 and Rec Page 2 The art is at the very bottom. The first page has many different fandoms in different groups and the second page is just HP so far.

thanks for the wonderful fest everyone!
celestlyncelestlyn on January 10th, 2011 12:23 am (UTC)
Fantastic!

Oh, I was surprised at a couple. I'm still reading, so I can't really comment on all of them. I will rec my favorites of the ones I have read so far. Honestly, I haven't read a bad fic yet. All of the authors should be proud because the quality is amazing in this years offerings. I want to read fics by authors that I haven't seen or read before, so knowing who wrote what will help there. Great job, everyone! Yay!

The art was also amazing! I wish like crazy that I had that kind of talent. Drawing or painting would be such a cool thing to be able to do. Keep it up, guys!

Aycelcus: cillaraaycelcus on January 10th, 2011 01:24 am (UTC)
First off, thank you Plotting Pen for my lovely lovely art! I was so very happy to receive it!

Secondly, modly goddesses, or godly mods, whichever you prefer, you may use my art to make icons if you so choose!

^__^ *dances about in glee* This was so much fun! My first H/D EVER!

And now I can USE MY DEFAULT ICON. I was afraid to tip the hat, since I totally drew this character into my comic for giggles. She's in there twice!

P.s. edited for severe html fail. Why do I even TRY?
