I wanted not only to thank all of the authors for their wonderful work, but also to extend the thanks out to everyone who graciously offered their help with santa_smex.
Thank you especially to venivincere for hosting the longer fics and for all the background help.
Thank you to tokyolights and illuminations for help with images.
Thank you to venivincere, prillalar , happiestwhen and pixxers for their super excellent pinch hitting, particularly given that most of them weren't even participants!
And lastly, thank you to all of the readers and commenters. Your feedback means a lot to the authors!
We had a huge variety of fics here at santa_smex this past month, with a wide variety of pairings, schools, scenarios and lengths- something for everyone to enjoy! Tezuka was probably the most popular character this year, with Fuji as a close second. We would need a Data Master of our own to do the tabulating, however. ;)
The authors are now free to publicly admit which fics they wrote, as well as post their fics where they please- though they are welcome to keep them at the community and/or on Veni's site. I noticed a lot of guesses floating around and they were fascinating to read.
If you have any suggestions for possible future years of this fest, please let me know. 2007 was a great second run- here’s hoping to future fests to come!
