The Art/Fic Master List (aka, the Great Reveal)
This inaugural year of the hp_beholder exchange went far better than I could possibly have imagined. When I opened up the sign-up post, I was crossing my fingers that we'd get at least 15 or 16 participants, but we ended up with 55 wonderful new stories and works of art...and here they are, once again, in posting order:
trickofthedark, aka, Didodikali (author and artist): "Cotyledon" (includes illustrations also by Didodikali, x-posted in fic. Slughorn/Hooch, brief mentions of Firenze/Trelawney, Pomfrey/Snape) for bluestocking79
NOTE: For the artists and for the authors whose works were long enough that I ended up hosting them on my website - please let me know when you've posted them on a site of your own and give me the new URL so I can update the coding. Merci!
I have special thanks for a number of people:
First, thanks go to tripperfunster whose charming "Pajama Party" artwork graces the main page of hp_beholder - and to femmequixotic who took that artwork and incorporated it in the layout she adapted for this community.
Also, many thanks to all the fantastic people who offered their pinch hitting services, especially to the ones who were able to step into the breach when scheduling problems arose (thank you, thank you, thank you to eeyore9990, venturous, and julian_black, plus tripperfunster, once again, for...everything!) - and much appreciation to xochiquetzl, nimrod_9, and atdelphi for their understanding when last minute changes had to be made.
But finally, a HUGE THANK YOU to all the talented artists and writers who created such wonderful art and fic - and to all the supportive members of this community - for giving love to those characters who, until now, never got enough loving.
"But what about me?" squeaked Filius Flitwick indignantly. "And me!" moaned Myrtle. "I never get any fun." "Unnatural! Blood traitors!" screamed Walburga Black. "May you all...oh...I mean, yes, and what about me? It's lonely behind this curtain." "I have no idea what you're all complaining about," Severus Snape said. He glanced at the award he'd won for Most Appearances in Art and Fic, then buffed his long, slightly-dirty fingernails on his black robe. "It all seemed to be organized in a perfectly equitable fashion to me." "Oh, shut up," grumbled Filius and Myrtle and Walburga in unison. The Mod looked over at the few still-unpartnered characters and smiled hopefully. "Maybe next year?"
