Waxing nostalgic and offering gratitude
The third round of snarry_holidays has officially come to a close! In a little over an hour, we'll post the final masterlist so you can finally see who wrote/drew for you. :) I've really enjoyed this round and it was especially wonderful getting to know some newer authors and artists, as well as seeing some familiar folks again. ♥
Thank you so much to everyone who participated as an author or an artist. We had a surprising number of dropouts this year, and thus there was a lot of under-the-wire regifting taking place. Thanks for everyone who was so supportive about allowing us to regift and working with us. We're especially grateful for those people who got their gifts in on time. ♥ Thank you to the pinch-hitters who stepped in: countesszero, who came in early on and was worked into the fest; ivylady, who generously allowed us to gift her pinch-hit to the comm; and psyfic, who stepped in at the last minute and was an absolute dream. ♥ Everyone's patience, perseverance and enthusiasm has been lovely.
jin_fenghuang volunteered this year to let us use her website for hosting longer fic and art. She helped with modding duties and spent many hours conquering the beast that is html and coding. She participated in the fest herself and has left many wonderful comments. Thank you so much, dear. You've been an absolute rockstar.
chiralove is always a fabulous co-mod and can be counted on for support in handling frustrating situations and effectively proofreading long fics at superhuman speed. *hugs tight* You deserve many martinis and chocolate and Snarry porn!
carpet_diemon also co-modded with us this year, helping in the arduous task of matching assignments, as well as answering emails and proofreading, even with injured hands! Thank you so much for your diligent work, hon!
shyfoxling saved our collectives asses by helping to proofread many stories. She was thorough and fast as lightning. Thank you so, so much.
Thank you to sev1970 for providing the coding for the first round-up and for her incredible enthusiasm.
To everyone who has commented and rec'd (and provided us recs), I can't promise you my firstborn - because I have no intentions to have squabbling children (one could say I'm hardwired like Snape in this way *g*) - but I can thank you profusely, so: THANK YOU!!!
Anyone else I have forgotten: thank you! Feel free to kick my ass. *g*
Everyone made this such a lovely round: thank you so much. There will be some last admin-y notes with the masterlist about posting and hosting your fic offsite, etc. :)
