Thank You and Reveals

87887_original

Dear Hoggywartians,

This 7th year of hoggywartyxmas has truly exceeded expectations. Even as I type this, comments are coming in, and I have a feeling this might well be a record year. (ETA I even got a note from LJ saying this entry is in the top 25 of popular entries - and true enough, when I just logged in, it was in the top entries place. Surely, fame cannot get higher.)

It certainly is a record year in Hot Recs - 16 so far! I haven't had time to send them out yet, but I'll do so soonest, and as always, everyone with a hot rec will get a personal email to inform them.

One reason for this incredibly successful 7th year is, of course, that the Older Character Lovers are a fabulous group, as generous as they are talented. I've wondered whether another reason might be that in these troublesome times all of Hogwarts Army flocked together to create a small space in which we celebrate just about everything the orange lord dislikes. A space in which we reach out and connect with each other, and even though it's a very small space in a very big world, surely it matters. If only so that we can all recharge our batteries and be ready for the months to come.

So thank you all, wonderful writers and artists, for delighting us with so many older character works. Thank you, lovely commenters, for giving so generously of your time and making hoggywartyxmas the marvelous experience it is. Thank you, Hogwarts staff, for hosting the party and having us around for two weeks. And, last but not least, thank you, dear Severus, for hosting the afterparty. A very happy birthday to you!

Thank you, each and everyone, for a wonderful Hoggy and Warty Seventh Edition.

Stay warm, dear Hoggywartians, keep in touch with one another, and don't forget to check LJ on September 1, 2017.

The 13th Day of Hogwarts - 2 - 1945

With this post the 13 days of this 7th hoggywartyxmas come to an end. You all have several days to put in your last comments - it was wonderful to see them all coming in; I have every hope that all stories will hit double-digit comments once again.

Due to my internet problems I wasn't able to search for recs as actively as in other years. If you've rec'ced something, please drop me a line, by mail, PM, or comment to the rec post.

Reveals will be up on January 9th. See you all then!

;Author’s Notes:
Dear Rayvyn, I hope you enjoy what I cooked up. One of your art prompts included "Snowball-Fight" and from there things just got out of hand. Well, you did also say, "indulge yourself".

Dear TRS - I can't apologise enough for the grey hairs I must have given you as two deadlines zoomed past. I seem to get worse with age! Thank you so, so much for your patience, and for giving us another Hoggywarty Christmas. And I hope you don't think, "I put up with this slacker for that?!

Thank you SO much, dear TRS, for putting up with me and for bringing us this fest. It is truly the highlight of my holidays, this year especially. Happy Hoggywartyxmas to you all!

Your mod is suffering from considerable internet problems, and I may not comment at once to entries. It's also possible some posts are taken over by my backup, the wonderful kellychambliss.

I just managed to see comments on a friend's ipad, and then I saw day 7 - 1 was posted after all - but the laptop that has all the stories and from which I post refuses to show me any LJ page. On account of it being a kinky sort of site that shouldn't be accessed in a public place.

Well, I'm in a rented holiday cottage and there will be words about the way they monitor internet use.

Meanwhile, I'll do the best I can. And there's backup.

I went with your suggestion of Wilhelmina and a friend who makes her life ... well, I do believe he made it more interesting, and perhaps you may also find that he made it a little happier. kellychambliss kindly cast a scrutinising eye over the result, for which Bob and I owe her a great debt of gratitude. All remaining inadequacies are mine. Happy hols, my dear! ♥
Speaking of gratitude, another load of it goes to our patient and generous mod, therealsnape. And finally, to all of you Hoggywartians, my best and warmest wishes for the holiday season and for the New Year!
