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!

Master list of ficlets!Collapse )

For the fic detectives among you, each ficlet ends with a poll asking you to guess the author. To get you started, here's the list of authors who participated in the challenge:
