Today we have a special treat for you.

To close out our 2007 Winter [info]snarry_games, Gold Medalists Team Wartime have gathered together a list of songs that inspired them during the writing process, and they wish to share them with you!

Each contributed song had an influence on the extraordinary works that Team Wartime produced for us.

Without further ado, the [info]snarry_games is proud to present:

The Team Wartime Soundtrack )

Thank you, Team Wartime! Enjoy the music, folks.

Stay tuned for a wrap-up post from the mods, a post from the Headmistress of Walking the Plank, and our usual Fandom Fest HOW-TO Poll V. 3. Because we are always looking to improve, and we also want to know if the changes we made from last year made this Games better and easier for all involved.

2007 Winter Games MEDAL AWARDS CEREMONY!  

Original poster: snarrymod

Today we again recognize the hard-won achievement and dedication of authors and their teams who strive for excellence in Snarry.

As always, it is the fans that are really the winners here. Our Champions all worked hard to entertain us, to allow us a glimpse into different worlds and characters that we hold near and dear. We thank them ALL for this gift they share.

However, in the competition we set out to do, the Judges (you, the readers) have voted to score these creative authors and their teams, both of which have alternatively stunned and excited us, allowing one to edge out the other for Gold by again, the smallest of margins. So without further ado:

Ladies and gentlemen, our GOLD MEDAL WINNERS, with a total of 754 out of a possible 864 points:

Team Wartime!

Congratulations to our 2007 Snarry Games Gold Medal Winners!

Wartime )

And our SILVER MEDAL WINNERS, with a total of 741 out of a possible 864 points:

Team Postwar!

Congratulations to our 2007 Snarry Games Silver Medal Winners!

Postwar )

Congratulations, all!

There were many people involved in the making of this year's medals and banners. Thanks go to: [info]glockgal for her fantastic original art, and to Milica (Melyannam) for the medal and banner designs/bases. We also owe big thank yous to [info]pervart for putting them together and personalizing, and also to [info]reddwarfer for personalizing the banners. Thanks, all you artistes!

Please take your medals home (temporary hotlinking allowed only) and take good care of them, they were hard work for the folks involved.

*The scores were tallied individually by [info]djin7, [info]aliciamasters, [info]reddwarfer, [info]alafairnadia, [info]meredyth_13, [info]medawyn, [info]magic_helmet and [info]shadowpryde, and then compared with the others. Any discrepancy with null votes was averaged. All individual author vote tallies are available, upon request, to the authors privately, via email to snarry.mod @ gmail.com. Thank you.

Extra thanks and praise go to [info]meredyth_13 for coming up with an absolutely brilliant system to make the counting easier!

Word Count: ~10,500 +/-
Author's Notes: By the time the Games started, it was clear to me that my original story idea - good though I think it was - was never going to get written . . . and between floods, family medical emergencies, and a massive case of writer's block, it was starting to look as if I was going to have to default on a challenge for the first time ever. Then [info]regan_v and [info]meri_oddities kidnapped me, gave me four new story ideas, and offered to beta for me because they are the best! Thanks so much to Regan and Meri (and the lovely [info]femmequixotic), without whose help this story would never have been completed, and thanks also to the mods for their patience and good spirits. Oh, and btw...if you notice some other genres (humor and romance) creeping into the story at any point, please try to ignore them for the sake of my teammates.

Summary: The war giveth and the war taketh away. Or not...if Harry has anything to say about it.

Word Count: 12,500 +/-
A/N: I owe a big thank you and an enormous amount of gratitude to [info]auctasinistra for all of the help she gave me on this. I never would have gotten this far with this story if it weren’t for your help. Nor would I have even gotten a decent plot bunny if it weren’t for my team members who let me bounce story ideas and what not off of them. So thank you to all who helped me. Also, I have learned one thing while writing this story. There is a reason why I am majoring in history and not in English; I am not grammatically inclined in any way whatsoever. And I have learned that while insomnia might be good for accomplishing some things, writing a decent Snarry is not one of these things you can do well when suffering from an insomniac fit. ;)
Disclaimer: I do not own them, that right belongs solely to JKR. I just borrow them to keep the voices inside of my head happy. Oh and no money is being made from this. Trust me, the bank is still telling me I have no money :( this is done purely for this fandoms entertainment and mine.

Summary: When everything that came before, who you are, what you were, who friends were and the life you lived has now been forgotten and all that you can remember is what happened since you woke up, you try the best you can to remember anything and everything…even if that means making your enemies your allies, friends, mentors and even in some cases, lovers.

A/N: Written for the [info]snarry_games Winter 2007 Games, Team Wartime. The influence of style from Samuel Shellabarger, particularly his Captain From Castile, will be obvious to those who know that text. Many thanks to betas [info]fabularasa, [info]cluegirl, [info]sobriquet_99, and [info]nimori, who had so many different drafts of this pressed on them, they musta thought they were dealing with Oliver Stone.

Summary: In 1492, Spain launched something far more shameful than just one misdirected Genoan and his three ships. And only those of limpieza de sangre--pure blood--were safe. And in truth, not even them.

A/N: The hardest fic to write that I’ve ever written. I originally thought it would be 5-7k. Oceans of gratitude to my incredible betas, [info]auctasinistra and [info]perfica, who not only did outstanding beta work but also supported me through quivering wreckdom. Without them, I would have had to withdraw from the Games. My debt to them is enormous. And, as they are the Queens of the Red Pencil, it must be understood that any errors are wholly my fault. Also, a huge shout out to our wonderful mod, [info]djin7, who waited patiently and never once spoke a word of censure. * tips hat * I not only could never, I would never do what she does.
Disclaimer: Harry Potter and Severus Snape are the property of JK Rowling. I intend no disrespect and I make no money from this or anything else.

Summary: The weak little whelp. Unable to withstand the most benign of tortures, he had collapsed, forsaking friends, foes and duty and in the process causing me no end of difficulty, as usual. I wanted to throttle him. I truly did.

Word Count: 14,000 +/-
A/N: Many many thanks to [info]joanwilder/Raewhit who did a wonderful last-minute beta, fixing scads of hideous capitalization errors and some atrocious Americanizations of British terms. And much love to the poor mods who put up with both my lateness and my spaciness in not informing them about my lateness.

Summary: A wizard's wand enhances his life
It helps him survive if he hasn't a wife
It keeps him from grief
And brings him relief
The time he spends with it is often too brief—
A wizard's wand has a knob on the end!
