... 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,
Masterlist and Reveals, in alphabetic order (Irma wouldn't have it any other way; she insisted on the pairings, too.)
