Friends of Snarry:

Hi. My name is [info]djin7, and I would like to say a few words to you all.

Before we announce the results of the 2007 Winter Snarry Games polls, I would like to take this time to thank some people who really made this year's Games a smashing success. We have had a pretty rough time of it these last few months, but rather than going over the bad, I wish to move forward and talk about all the good, and the community that we have, which is worth its weight in gold medals:

I would like to thank [info]glockgal for donating our beautiful Snarry Games artwork for 2007. I would also like to thank [info]pervart for our layout using the artwork and providing us with pimp banners, icons, and the personalisation of the medals, as well as her tireless work to edit all the banners and medals from last year to conform to our new name. It was because of them that we joined in the HP Quills For A Cause effort this year, and we are humbled by the gifts they bestow upon us. Much ♥LOVE♥ and kudos to them both!

I would also like to thank [info]medawyn, [info]alafairnadia and [info]earthphoenix for their mod help this year, from helping organise the memories to coding interviews and entries, and helping with the Name Change Incident. Thank you all so much! We hope you stick around for the next games.

To [info]meredyth_13, [info]shadowpryde, and [info]magic_helmet, who came through with some outstanding volunteer work at the end of the games that really saved our asses. ♥ Also, to the volunteers who helped to keep this ship afloat after it had been almost sunk during the Name Change Incident:

[info]alisanne,[info]captain_tulip, [info]elfwreck [info]r_grayjoy, [info]ms_beeblebrox, [info]txrabbit, [info]montana_dan, [info]maskofsmiles[info]joanwilder[info]rory8, [info]sansa1970, [info]inspiredlife, [info]verdenia, [info]legomymalfoy, [info]suemonroe, [info]briarwolf, [info]chaeche and [info]swtalmnd.

Thank you to [info]igtow and [info]lampblack for their gifts of paid time for us this year! And to our mysterious rose benefactor, as well! ♥

Thank you to the Artists who sent in the wonderful Opening Games Crack!Art to help us fill the spaces between when the authors were scribbling away. ♥♥♥ as well as to the Closing Games Drabblers who helped us distract you while we were counting. *g*

Thank you to DJIN's ARMY. You all know why. I am not worthy. *Squishes you all*

Thank you to [info]oulangi, who helped me several times this year when I considered walking over a cliff with an anvil, or being a stupid Gryffindor. She was the yin to my yang, and helped to keep me calm and rational when the seas were roughest. Thank you! ♥

A very special thank you goes out to [info]aliciamasters and [info]reddwarfer, who both have alternatively supported me, stood up to me, listened to me, talked to me, carried my burdens and helped me in ways that cannot be properly expressed in words - I thank you both so much. You are the best of the best and whenever I feel like I need a true friend, you guys are there for me, taking time out of your busy lives to help me in my projects. For all the things you do, I wish I could give you your own medals. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

To all the readers and fans who helped make this project a huge success: My deepest gratitude. Thanks to you all, we are now being Watched By: 1900! To you all, for reading and reviewing, for voting and pimping, for reccing and listing! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! *applauds you all *

The totals are in, and have been tallied several times. This means that the Medal Ceremonies will be coming right up, after a personal open letter to my Games Champions. Stay tuned!

An Open Letter to My Snarry Games Champions  

Original poster: djin7

Before I present the Medals for a job well done, I would like to take this opportunity to review the Contestants from this most excellent round of the 2007 Snarry Games. My favourite part of this whole process is reading these stories, and I would like for the Champions to know of the enjoyment they gift me with.

So without further ado, the reviews that I wasn't able to do when I was busy posting:

To my most excellent Snarry Games Authors )


Thank you all so very much for giving us these wonderful gifts! In the end, it is us, the fans, who really win the prizes. ♥

The Medal Ceremony will be up next, and we are sorry for the delay! Also, stay tuned for a special gift to the fans from Team Wartime, afterwards.

2007 Winter Games MEDAL AWARDS CEREMONY!  

Original poster: snarrymod

Today we again recognize the hard-won achievement and dedication of authors and their teams who strive for excellence in Snarry.

As always, it is the fans that are really the winners here. Our Champions all worked hard to entertain us, to allow us a glimpse into different worlds and characters that we hold near and dear. We thank them ALL for this gift they share.

However, in the competition we set out to do, the Judges (you, the readers) have voted to score these creative authors and their teams, both of which have alternatively stunned and excited us, allowing one to edge out the other for Gold by again, the smallest of margins. So without further ado:

Ladies and gentlemen, our GOLD MEDAL WINNERS, with a total of 754 out of a possible 864 points:

Team Wartime!

Congratulations to our 2007 Snarry Games Gold Medal Winners!

Wartime )

And our SILVER MEDAL WINNERS, with a total of 741 out of a possible 864 points:

Team Postwar!

Congratulations to our 2007 Snarry Games Silver Medal Winners!

Postwar )

Congratulations, all!

There were many people involved in the making of this year's medals and banners. Thanks go to: [info]glockgal for her fantastic original art, and to Milica (Melyannam) for the medal and banner designs/bases. We also owe big thank yous to [info]pervart for putting them together and personalizing, and also to [info]reddwarfer for personalizing the banners. Thanks, all you artistes!

Please take your medals home (temporary hotlinking allowed only) and take good care of them, they were hard work for the folks involved.

*The scores were tallied individually by [info]djin7, [info]aliciamasters, [info]reddwarfer, [info]alafairnadia, [info]meredyth_13, [info]medawyn, [info]magic_helmet and [info]shadowpryde, and then compared with the others. Any discrepancy with null votes was averaged. All individual author vote tallies are available, upon request, to the authors privately, via email to snarry.mod @ Thank you.

Extra thanks and praise go to [info]meredyth_13 for coming up with an absolutely brilliant system to make the counting easier!
