Artist's notes: This took way longer than I expected and I apologize all around. The prompt was inspiring and my muses refused to let me get away with a shorter story. *sweatdrop* person958, I hope it fulfills some of your expectations. Also, it was really fun to draw Snape! I was fighting to keep his hair from being too glamorous. !_!

Back to School -- End of Term Report

Otherwise known as The Big Reveal

When we decided to have a different format for this fest, we weren't sure how it would work, but once again it has far exceeded our expectations. Not only in the quality of art and fic submitted, but also the generosity of our members:

First, a huge thank you to everyone who submitted prompts. Without them there wouldn't have been a fest.

A heartfelt thank you to naadi for creating our beautiful banner.

Our undying gratitude to our beta team, who stepped up and helped us so much: joanwilder, angela_snape, leela_cat, midnight_birth, norton_gale and silver_ariel.

Thank you to everyone who took part and worked so hard on their fiction and art. *adores*

To all of you who pimped the fest on your LJs and in newsletters, you hold a special place in our hearts.

And finally – to everyone who read and commented on the art and fics, your contributions are vital, both to the participants and the fest.

Over the 36 days of the fest, we had 13 drool worthy art posts and 62 compelling stories (two of which were graced with art) totalling over 863,000 words.

The longest story was “Barriers Both, Flesh and Stone”, with over 56,000 words.

The shortest story was “Yin and Yang”, with exactly 1,000 words.
