Snarry-a-Thon: The Final Curtain Call...
Regular posting for the 2009 Easter Edition Snarry-a-Thon is now over!
I'd like to take a moment to thank all of you - artists, authors, readers, watchers, commenters, reccers, betas, and lurkers alike - for all of your contributions and continuing support of our ship. Hopefully we have fully put to rest those silly rumors that our ship was in desperate need of last rites. ;D I hope, too, that you've enjoyed yourselves with this fest because embracing and sharing our love for all things Snarry is the reason we are all here. This fest would not exist without all of you, and your efforts are appreciated more than I can possibly express. ♥♥♥
Special, undying love and admiration (as well as my first-born; she can be packed off in a matter of moments) for the tireless efforts of: my partner in crime, magic_helmet for last-minute coding, off-site uploading, corrections, and general hand-holding. See what happens when you submit your entry early?; whitecotton participant, mod-coddler, and fest beta extraordinaire. I am amazed she hasn't blocked my e-mail address at this point; auxelle for sharing posting duties with me. She lost her internet connection and drove to an internet cafe to post. Talk about dedication!; littleblackbow for the amazing art, eye-popping Snarry-a-ThonG pimping banner and fabulous contest prizes, *attempts to sneak own name into the Goblet of Fire* Do you think people would notice if I won?; rosiegirl22001 for her uploading and mad spreadsheet skillz because, seriously, no one wants to depend on my math skills to determine the contest winners; swtalmnd for her sexy Snape and Harry art and the fantastic pimping banners; torino10154 for her amazing series of fest icons; yanks02 for her weekly wrap-up posts; oni_butterfly for her wicked Photoshop skillz; sansa1970 and empathic_siren for so graciously providing website space for us to house our art and the longer fics; to all the wonderful members of the very active Severus Sighs Yahoo group for their contribution to the list of fest prompts; and to all my snape_potter co-mods - auxelle, fl3tch3r, gaycrow, and yanks02 - for recs, encouragement, and the quick turn-around time with membership requests. This fest could never have happened without you. *hugs*
This year we had a grand total of 66 submissions - 23 pieces of art and 43 fics. Not a bad showing considering the quick turn-around time. ;D
The final reveal will take place on Sunday, May 10. That gives you plenty of time to enter our CONTESTS! both for commenting and for guessing which person created which entry. The winners will receive a piece of original art generously donated by the lovely littleblackbow. I'll be posting a list of "hints" and more information about both contests shortly.
Please take some time to browse through the community and check out some of the entries you may have missed. It's unfortunate that entries posted mid- to late-fest tend to get less attention than earlier ones, but there are so many wonderful entries from start to finish that I hope you'll make the time to read and review. Remember, feedback is ♥.
