The End of the HD Worldcup

Well, the last story was posted yesterday morning! I'm sad that it's over, but it's been a fantastic journey- there's such an incredible collection of high quality fiction and art- it's wonderful. I'm sorry I haven't been very active during the cup with recs and whatnot, but I'm ever so close to losing sanity. I mean, last week, I got a GI bug so badly, I ended up admitted on an IV drip and getting some shots and bloodwork. Bugs shouldn't be that bad- I put it down to my weakened immune system (can't really fix mine) and stress- in another week or so, things should be calming down and then I can breathe!

On to the rest of EWE's fabulous pieces: leochi  drew an incredible piece that is wonderfully cute and tender for the storyline, point of view, and the H/D relationship.  xanateria  wrote a cute, funny story in which Harry tries to find a hobby.  ashe_frost wrote another adorable piece with a lot of interesting twists on what we'd usually imagine.  pervyunitwins  wrote a very cute story with lots of UST and a planning Harry!  misterwalnut drew a really cute piece in an interesting style that definitely shouldn't be missed.   jamie2109  wrote a really fabulous story that I would highly recommend regardless of how interested you are in politics- it's a wonderful read!  Finally, bemygoodday  finished out the cup with a very cute story, featuring a coffee-loving Draco.

Make sure you read all the entries in the cup and get your vote in (if you aren't on a team)!  Go EWE!

Haha, well, the real life stress was more of the stress I was thinking of. I've got an abstract to submit in a week for data I haven't finished analysing, I just finished finals for my classes, boys can be jerks (even when they are as old as their late 20s, they still seem like boys), etc. Blech. The Cup was mostly just a ton of fun! I tried not to let it stress me too much. It was definitely a relief from RL pressures to read all the great stories everyday.

I did see that smoochfest had started posting, but I haven't had time to look at any of them yet. I'll get to them soon! *crosses fingers*

Hiya! They haven't announced the winner yet actually- that's supposed to happen on the 18th (even though voting closed on the 12th), so we still have a couple days. I'm sorry it took me a couple days to respond- I drove over 800 miles cross country and got hit by an 18-wheeler, but I'm okay! A bit skittish arond big trucks, but alright. It's been a crazy couple of days. I'm really looking forward to the end tabulations. Two more days!! Hope all is well with you.

I've got the worldcup masterlist open in my browser. I try to vote on as many fics/art as I can manage before the 12th. There are so many fanstastic stories there!

That there are! I had so many stories I really loved and enjoyed- I wish I could find the time to go back and remember my favourites and rec them... that might be a project for the distant future... Good luck with voting (and thanks for doing so!). :)
