Gwyneth! Can I borrow your Oscar speech?

Otherwise known as The Big Reveal. Once again this fest far exceeded our expectations. Not only in the quality of art and fic submitted, but also the generosity of our members:

A heartfelt thank you to oldenuf2nb, grey_hunter and red_rahl for creating our beautiful banners.

Thanks to grey_hunter, luci0logy and red_rahl for making Animagus themed icons for the fest.

Our undying gratitude to our pinch hitters extraordinaire, who stepped up and offered their services: potteread and leochi, who helped us out with art. khateh - who wrote 2 fics for the fest. calanthe_fics and libby_drew who both wrote for us.

Thank you to the participants who graciously gifted their fics to the comm, when their recipients dropped out. And to all the particpants for, well.... participating. *adores*

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

And finally – dear gods, will someone shut that woman up! – to everyone who read and commented on the art and fics, your contributions are vital, both to the participants and the fest. There are several readers who commented on every post, but we haven’t had time to compile all the names yet. We will, but it may take a while.

And now…

Oh boy, would we be in trouble if fan fiction had calories. Between 1st May and 15th June, followers of the fest devoured 59 delicious stories totalling 794,308 words, which is the equivalent of FOUR Deathly Hallows, 11 drool worthy art posts, plus two stories graced with art.

The longest story was “Out of the Night that Covers Me”, with over 65,000 words.

The shortest story was “Prelude to the 7th Goblin Wars, Or, Thou Dewberry Pisshead Lout”, with 1,300 words and a most intriguing title.

What did our wonderful participants pick as the Animagus form?

Draco won this one! He was picked in 27 posts, while Harry managed a mere 19! The other 24 posts had both of them in animal form. In one story, Draco was clever enough to have two Animagi forms, the crafty Slytherin!

Harry took it on the chin with:

10 birds (including 1 hooded crow, 1 gull, 1 peregrine falcon, 2 falcons, 1 blackbird, 1 eagle, 1 parrot, 2 hawks and 1 owl)
9 Dogs (including 1 Chihuahua)
5 Big Cat (including 1 tiger, 1 leopard, 1 magical leopard, 1 panther and 1 lynx)
4 Cats
3 Phoenix
2 Rabbits
and one each of the follow: Bat, Crup, Duck, Fox, Horse, Polar Bear, Snake, Stag, Swan, Wolf

Draco has yet to forgive us for changing him into:

10 Cats
9 Birds (including 1 falcon, 1 kestrel, 1 eagle, 1 hawk, 3 owls and 1 parrot)
6 Dogs
4 Big Cats (including 1 Siberian tiger, 2 snow leopards and 1 magical liger)
3 Fox (including 1 Artic fox)
3 Peacocks (including 2 white peacocks)
3 Swans (including 2 white swan and 1 black swan)
2 Ferrets
2 Rabbits
2 Snakes
and one each of the following: Goat, Hamster, Horse, Magical creature, Newt, Penguin, Wolf, Walrus

And now, onto the Big Reveal.
