Masterlist and Reveals



On the Twelve Days of Hogwarts, My Flisties Gave To Me ...

... 10 Lords a-leaping (a bribe from albalark, and my, is that cousin of hers bribe-material. (scroll down to comments)

... 11 hot recs. Eleven! On a total of 26 entries!

... 26 terrific entries

... over 500 comments to those stories.


Dear Hoggy Warty Party-goers,

I can only hope you've all had as grand a time as I had during this party. I've been completely blown away by the sheer quality of the stories - winners, all. And the enthusiasm with which you've all participated and commented has made this ... well, actually the most satisfying thing I did in 2010. I cannot even begin to thank you all. It's been absolutely marvellous.

The whole Hogwarts staff and their friends join me in a standing ovation to all of you. While they were at first slightly weary of the Muggle invasion, they've all found it an exhilarating experience. In fact, some of them (starry-eyed and rather flushed) whispered that they had felt the earth move.

Thank you all for a wonderful party.
Your modly mod,
TRS

I agree; I'm really thrilled with the response to this little shindig. Tons of readers, and I saw recs all over my f-list. Well done, writers, and fantastic job, mod! Three cheers for therealsnape! (And now I have a TON of catch-up reading to do... Ack!!)

Easily the most fun exchange I have ever been a sort of part of. even though it cost me several keyboards.

Some really amazing stories, and wonderful parties.

My heartfelt thanks to the lovely TRS for hosting.

This has been one of the highest quality (not to mention, one of the most fun!) fic fests I've ever had the privilege of attending. Thank you to all of the brilliant authors who wrote such marvelous stories, and thank you to therealsnape for being the mod-iest mod who ever mod-ed and for hosting such a fabulous party! ::glomps you::

I love reveals -- I always feel both vindicated (look how many I guessed right!) and abashed (and wow, was I wrong!) This time, I guessed people who hadn't even participated.

Thank you, TRS, for one of the best fests I've been in.

My (American-style) grade is attached.

This was my first fest and a wonderful introduction to them. Thank you to TRS for being such a kind (extension granting) mod, to featherxquill for my gift and all the authors for such fabulous contributions!

Thanks for running such an incredible, positive fest. I still have a ton of things to catch up on, but you did a fantastic job (and so did everyone else).

AAAAAHHHH!!!!

*Dances gleefully around.* This fest definitely sits at top-two favourite fest (I could never choose between this and a fest dedicated solely to Minerva McGongall, and no one in right mind would have me do such a thing)! It was fantastically fun. In a winter-holiday-time that could potentially have been a downer for me, Hoggywarty was a set of shining lights to keep me entertained and amused and generally Feeling throughout. Absolutely lovely!

And, further keysmashing I will save you from, I can't believe I got a Kelly Chambliss story. I guess it's like someone fashion-conscious getting one of those Designer Purses with the funny names I can't pronounce, or high heels you could compete with the Eiffel Tower with, only I don't do purses or heels, I do words. And stories always last longer than either of those, so I am endlessly ecstatic to have a Kelly Chambliss in my collection. The absolute perfect story for me to receive. I knew whoever had written it had to know me well. (; And when I saw Kelly's short review of it, my eyebrow rose slightly...but to have it confirmed is marvellous. Whee! Yay!

(And, hopefully she knows how pleased I am, since I see I left a rather lot of squeeing all over the story. :Þ)

Thank you so much for this fest, Real Snape! It was such a wonderful winter gift to all of us! You are the best Modly Mod. (: And I love how involved you were as Just One of Us too. You wear your many hats well! *Tips her own hat to you.*

Like cranky__crocus said: This fest definitely sits at top-two favourite fest (I could never choose between this and a fest dedicated solely to Minerva McGongall, and no one in right mind would have me do such a thing)! .... This brought so much joy - and therealsnape has not just been the best mod but also brought two gifts to share (one I guessed the other one I'd never ;-) ) : you have outdone yourself as the perfect host ! Thank you so much!

Also joining the applause! This has been really a wonderful party and a brilliant fanfic fest, making the drab time after Christmas and the New Year so much more enjoyable! Thank you, therealsnape, for hosting it and all, and queen_of_snapes for your wonderful gift! ♥

This whole thing FELT like a big, festive party, and definitely helped infuse my holidays with some much-needed Christmas spirit. All the fics I've read have been amazing, and I'm so excited to think that this week I'll have time to catch up on more. :D

TRS, you've been a totally kickass mod, if that term can possibly be applied to such a wonderfully nice and laid back person. Please say we can do this again next year?

This has been the first time in which I've read something from an HP Christmas fest. I haven't read all stories, but following this has been great fun. Thank you all for the wonderful stories you gave us!

I'd just like to add my thanks to the chorus, TRS - you've done a wonderful job here, and my heart is warmed by how this little fest really grew wings and flew :-) Same time, nest year, perhaps? ;-)
