2009 Snarry Mixed Art and Fic Games Medal Ceremonies!  
Today we recognize the hard-won achievement and dedication of both authors and artists and their teams who strive for excellence in fanworks and Snarry. I know that every Champion worked hard for the good of their team and they all deserve highest marks for their efforts. We were all lucky to have won something during these Games. We designed this year's Games to encourage boldness, to try new things and set new standards, and we feel that all the Champions answered the bell admirably.

However, in the competition we set out to do, the Snarry Games Judges (you, the readers) have voted to score these teams, both having shown up to these Games with the most stellar of performances, allowing one to edge out the other for Gold.

Ladies and gentlemen, our GOLD MEDAL WINNERS, with a total of 1234 out of a possible 1350 points:





Team Snitch!




Congratulations to our 2009 Snarry Mixed Games Gold Medal Winners!



Team Snitch )




And our SILVER MEDAL WINNERS, with a total of 1227 out of a possible 1350 points:








Team Cauldron!


Congratulations to our 2009 Snarry Games Silver Medal Winners!


Team Cauldron )






Don't forget to take your medals home (i.e. no hotlinking for any length of time) and show them off! Take good care of them. Line art provided by the most excellent [info]ponderosa121 as featured on our 2009 Layout. Medals by [info]elanorofcastile! Awesome coding provided by God-like [info]reddwarfer! Harry Potter provided by JKR/Warner Bros et al.

*The scores were tallied individually by the moderators of the Snarry Games and then compared. Any discrepancy with null votes was averaged by [info]djin7.

All individual Champion vote tallies are available, upon request, to the authors and artists privately, via email to snarry.mod @ gmail [dot] com. Thank you.

Congratulations, all!

I would thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for you my heart has no bottom.  
Dear Friends of Snarry:



This was an amazing year, with a new "mixed art and fic" format, and our largest ever. It once again showed that the most talented people are still within the Snarry fandom. We had 50 truly exquisite pieces of art plus 50 excellent stories, and as always – fantastic and entertaining Opening and Closing Games ceremonies!

Also, many Champions, past and present, helped this round of the Games with pimping and reccing, and commenting. Our hope always has been to help facilitate a sense of community in this fandom, hoping to keep the SS Snarry sailing through calm waters. When we see how fantastically supportive the champions are, whether author or artist, it makes all our hard work worth every minute spent. Thank you, all!


Before we announce the medalists for the 2009 Mixed Snarry Games, I would like to take this time to thank some people who really went above and beyond the call of duty this round )


The scores are great, but the real reward for our Champions are the wonderful, thoughtful comments from the readers. At the Games, we are lucky to have thousands of comments, all of which keep this fantastic level of talent returning home to us.

To all the readers and fans who helped make this project a huge success: you truly have my deepest gratitude. Thanks to you all, for watching and reviewing, for voting and pimping, and for reccing and listing! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! *applauds*

**Remember that even though the polls are now closed for this round, these entries will remain up, so please: if you haven't taken the time yet, it's not too late. Please revisit the entries, and comment, comment, comment!

Stay tuned for the final announcements! The totals are in, and have been tallied. The moment you've all been waiting for is up next, the 2009 Snarry Art Games Medal Ceremony!


There is yet more to come this week, including information about our fourth annual Snarry Games Art Tribute Video, a fabulous concept provided by our most illustrious Snarry Vidder and Snapecast Editor, [info]chaeche. You will also find posting instructions for Walking the Plank, and final mod notes including an announcement about the future of the Snarry Games.


Thank you!


Cheers,

Title: Severus saves his boy

CLOSING GAMES ENTRY #11 - Drawbles by Team Cauldron's Umbrus!

Title: Closing Games Drawbles
Artist: Umbrus
Rating/Warnings:G to hard R, none.
Notes: I tried my best to find time to draw a drawble for every fic on cauldron (couldn't get to them all but I got every posted fic that didn't have a drawble) and as I don't have as much time as I'd like with RL being unfairly busy some of these are very rushed and definitely not up to par but I think it's the thought that counts. Also, another thank you to my team, my team captions and the mods; you guys are amazing! and made this years games experience better than ever. I really had a lot of fun. Thank you! (Also, the concepts depicted in the drawbles obviously do not belong to me.)
