Before we announce the winners, the mods wanted to take a minute to thank each and every one of our participants for the second round of the H/D World Cup. We appreciate every one of you whether you submitted a work, you commented, you rec'd, you squeed, you voted or you cheered on your favorite team. We've worked hard to ensure an environment that rewarded watchers as much as the "athletes" and everyone certainly came through.
One of the new additions to the World Cup this year was the addition of the Seeker position. Each team chose one author and one artist. We would, now, like to reveal the Seekers for each team.
For Team AU:
The Artist Seeker: reira_21
The Author Seeker: dacro
For Team Epilogue:
The Artist Seeker: harrysde
The Author Seeker: lomonaaeren
For Team EWE:
The Artist Seeker: chibitoaster
The Author Seeker: aoifene
We are very pleased to announce that Team AU swept the Seeker competition. They have not one but two Golden Snitches! Congratulations to reira_21 and dacro for winning!
How the votes were tabulated: Each and every eligible vote (ie, not a participant and/or not a moderator) was counted. Each story had the ability to score a total of 40 points (twenty points for LJ and twenty points for IJ) for a perfect score. The final point tally is an average of the votes versus the number of voters for each question. The Seeker points and the Commentor Awards were then added to the tabulations for the chosen team.
That bit of math geekery out of the way, now, on to the reveals of the winner of the 2009 H/D World Cup!
