THANK YOU!!

And we're done! Reveals will be in a week to ten days, allowing the extra time for all submissions -- particularly those posted in the last two weeks of the fest -- to get due attention while anon. Without exception, there was OUTSTANDING fic and art posted every day and every week of this fest, but the natural lag time around the holidays has meant less attention to those deserving artists and writers. Please take the time to go back through and read things you may have missed or are behind on - and comment!

THANK YOU to every single writer and artist who participated. You went with us on the new format, and I have to say it paid off -- not only were the submissions outstanding as always, but there were fewer drop-outs than EVER before (in any fest I've modded), but more submissions were turned in EARLY or on shorter extensions. You all made Tara and my lives so much easier, with more postable things to play with, and a less arduous proofreading task. We love modding, and this round went so smoothly, we're not even sure what to do with ourselves! ♥

Thank you also, of course, to our pinch hitters (oh ye few but wonderful), who were willing to step in whenever needed, and took such care in preparing your gifts. Thank you annafugazzi, frayach, rickey_a, scrtkpr, ravenna_c_tan, heathen_arcade, lizardspots and furiosity. We couldn't have done it without you. To our proofreading helpers, bewarethesmirk and furiosity, you helped us manage when the reading volume was over-whelming, and thank you so much for that ♥

Also thank you to those participants who were so understanding and flexible when their recipient and/or writer dropped out - it wasn't always easy reassigning things, but all of you made our job much easier.

For anyone who would like to begin the guessing game of who wrote/drew what, feel free to do so in comments! Likewise, anyone who would like to make a poll is welcome to do so. :)

Round Five
Tara and I are on board for a Winter 2009 round if you are :D We will run it in a similar format to this year, since it worked out so well. More details will follow this summer.

Happy H/D Holidays, everyone!

NQ & Tara
