A very happy 2016 to everyone! rs_small_gifts
is now officially ten years old and still going strong. We had 37 gifts of fic and art
from 30 participants,
including 9 first-time Small Gifters
and at least two of us who've participated ten years in a row. (Who all's been here since the beginning?) We've knitted with Remus and Sirius, made jewelry, solved mysteries, started a radio station, sat by the fire, stolen some sparkling ham, drunk Veritaserum, tracked down gorgeous strangers, studied cryptozoology, baby-sat Harry, baby-sat Teddy and James and Albus Severus and Lily, built blanketforts, reported the news, watched the stars, and, of course, fallen in love, over and over. We've left 650 comments
for each other since we first started our discussions in late November.
It's been a blast.
Special thanks go out to everyone who commented on our gifts, keeping fandom interactive and conversational and warm and fun. Thanks also go out to our pinch-hit team of brighty18
, and mustntgetmy
, who all rose to the occasion brilliantly. And finally, no one manages a fest more effectively than mindabbles
without whose help Small Gifts wouldn't be possible. (magnetic_pole
can't say thanks often enough.)
Enjoy the new year, everyone! May 2016 be filled with fannish fun and friendship.
