The Summer 2012 round is officially over! Never underestimate the power of google docs and spreadsheets, my friends. Writers, feel free to crosspost, repost, or do whatever you desire with your fics.
I hope everyone enjoyed the exchange. Through runandgun, I’ve managed to meet wonderful people and make great friends. Hopefully, everyone has found awesome authors to follow. The turnout was overwhelming, and I thank every author for the work and dedication they put into each fic. Thank you to the authors who met the original deadline, met their extension deadlines, responded to us, tolerated our reminder emails, or simply stuck with us til the end. It’s been a bumpy but fun ride. Thank you to everyone who participated by writing, reading, commenting, or simply being here. As a community, we wrote a total of 706,500+ words for the exchange. I tried to read as many fics as I could, but I’m sure every single fic was wonderful in their own way.
Please give a round of applause to our wonderful and amazing pinch hitters: goldengutgirl, leadernim, sparksfly7,
chaltyr, maayacola, officiallykris, feixing, emberberry, zeerious, snow_wood, hyperlydian, virgo288, loudestoflove, nisakomi, and windowright, and taozi. Special thanks go to our double pinch hitters, who each wrote 3 fics for the exchange: nisakomi, chaltyr, and maayacola. ♥♥♥ To everyone who stepped up to the plate and made this exchange possible.
The next section is completely biased but necessary. I cannot thank everyone enough: Aeris for the handholding, E for helping us sort the assignments, Maia for her nimble fingers and constant enthusiasm, June for her vigilance and excitement, B Jiejie for her support, R for all the virtual tea and bubble baths sent my way, Jo for being the Krislay campaign manager as r&g
(Now excuse me while I hibernate.)
Chiha’s covered it all mostly, so suffice to say - a huge thank you to all you lovely writers who participated and made this exchange possible, the pinch-hitters who saved the day, and the pinch-hitters who turned fic in multiple times - WE LOVE YOU ALL. This is also the largest fic exchange I’ve helped organise. While it was overwhelming at times, and we both went from :Db to e___e to u__u and vice versa a lot - it was definitely quite the experience. ;D
Several people have asked about the timing for the next exchange. There will be no exchanges held for the remainder of this year. However, both of us are strongly considering a Winter 2013 round for Valentine’s Day. :)
Thank you J, J and L for all the handholding, E for helping us sort the assignments in the beginning, my tlist for their constant encouragement and enthusiasm and of course, Chiha, my best co-mod, for without her I’d have already combusted. LOL.
Happy reading! ♥
