    [info]bethbethbeth: Monday Fic/Art Round-Up #3

    Here's the third Monday Fic and Art Round-Up for HP Beholder

    And folks, I know how hard it is to keep up with Fest reading/viewing, especially after the initial burst of first-week enthusiasm has passed, but some extremely good work is being posted, and it would be sad if those stories languished unseen (I say 'stories' because even short fic is slightly more of a time commitment than art).

    Here's the second Monday Fic and Art Round-Up for HP Beholder.

    *Special note to all authors and artists: I don't know if you've noticed, but comment tracking has been enabled on IJ. Why does this matter? Because while it's easy enough to keep track of the comments you receive while an anonymous exchange is going on, the only person who'll get notifications two months (or two years) after posting ends is...me! If you want to make sure you don't miss out on any of your feedback, just open the post for the art or story you created and - while logged in - click on the little pushpin icon at the top of the post. Voila!
