The Big Reveal...

Fellow fans, may we present...

...the final MASTER LIST of ficlets with author names!Collapse )

We had thirteen fics from twelve authors dealing with all kinds of themes, including friendship, romance, marriage, gender politics, sex, and families. All the members of the Mauraders generation got a chance to shine--including Peter! Romance, humor, angst, we wrote it all.

We also had more than a hundred comments from readers--we love you, readers!--and about forty guesses at authors. And the most intrepid fic detectives among you? (As of midnight last night?)

* In a turn of brilliance that's actually a bit intimidating, participant elsane managed to deduce the author of no fewer than nine--yes, we said nine--of the ficlets. Congratulations, Elsane! The perceptive readers secretsolitaire and mindabbles both correctly guessed three authors each.

* The most recognizable authors? snegurochka_lee, whose ficlet "Bachelor Auction" was identified correctly by no less than five people, and minnow_53, whose ficlet "The Years Before You Came" was identified by four.

* The least recognizable author? magnetic_pole, whose "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" was the only fic that went completely unidentified. (Although she was flattered to find you thought she wrote several other wonderful ficlets.)

*

Thanks so much to everyone for playing--reading, commenting, guessing, writing, enjoying the first war again, remembering how much we can say in just a couple hundred words. This has been such a delight, everyone! Finally, magnetic_pole would like to offer special thanks to sambethe, who volunteered to help out and wound up doing all the work. Thanks, K.

Thanks so much, everyone!
