Things have gotten absolutely insane for me recently, what with Palm Sunday this past weekend, and friends having crazy schemes they feel the need to drag me along with (not to mention exams and lab work)! Anyhow, I've been trying my best to keep up with the [info]hd_worldcup . I'd like to encourage everyone to vote- voting is purely for watchers (and here's your super-important role as a watcher... you get to decide which team wins)! It doesn't take very long, and the works are all so fabulous, you'll enjoy them- really! I'd also recommend leaving comments for the stories you enjoy, as comments are love (who could deny anyone some love)?

Especially, please, read/look at the works for TEAM EWE!! Our team has put out a variety of showings so far, and I think that no matter what kinds of stories you like, you can find one or more to fit your tastes. eloriee's art was posted today- this is an absolutely gorgeous and touching piece- I think I feel/notice something different every time I look at it.  The moon is gorgeous and has me captivated- although it's got a touch of sadness, it's really lovely.  If you like happier art, chibitoaster created a fabulous piece that makes me giggle and lifts my spirits- it's very clever and wonderful (make sure you stay after the credits to see the last adorable image).  The almost kiss she has in there turns me to mush! Gah!

As for fiction, tmkline's cute and happy story was posted yesterday- I absolutely adore it.  She has some great characterisations and just- gah, I LOVE it (she used the prompt so well too!).  camillily wrote a wonderful piece that captures Draco's snark and the many sides of Harry- it had me giggling a lot.  It was very funny and fabulously written!  If you prefer angsty, sadder stories, then I'd definitely recommend aoifene's story- it's very well-written.  The angst prevalent, but the open ending gives us all hope!

As for other team's works, well, they have also been brilliant- we have some very tough competition.  The range of stories has been incredible too.  I'd highly recommend reading/looking at all the pieces so far.  I absolutely guarantee you will find something you enjoy.  As far as the other works go, I really enjoyed the art by reira_21- it's not as happy as the things I usually enjoy, but it's definitely brought me back to it again and again- it's just incredibly lovely and heart-wrenching.  The story by nolagal  is very clever and cute- if you like next gen, I think you'll like this piece all the more.  It's very well done and very, very cute.  I think most impressive, beyond the whole concept (really clever), is the writing style that pulls you into Albus's world.  Finally, I really loved the story by chyldofeternity which is just so touching and sad (watch out for the warnings though!)

I can't wait to see what else is posted.  EVerything has just been so absolutely amazing so far!
