Final HP Beholder Master List and Reveals

With this final post, hp_beholder will be closing its doors. Seven years—what a run! (That's long enough, you may note, to complete a Hogwarts education.) I want to thank first and foremost bethbethbeth for creating this wonderful fest, which has been a home away from home for fans like me. I don't think there is anything I can do or say to properly convey how much joy I've found here.

Thank you to those who been here since the beginning, and to those who took part for the first time this year.

Thank you to every generous pinch-hitter and commenter.

Thank you to everyone who pioneered a pairing here, and to those who made someone's year by gifting them with their favourite rare ship.

Thank you to everyone who challenged themselves, indulged themselves, and took a chance on creating or enjoying something different.

Over the next year, I'll be working to clean up the tags and back up everything on Dreamwidth so that this wonderful collection will endure as an archive of some of the best, most original, and most thoughtful works the Harry Potter fandom has to offer. If you publish on AO3, please consider adding your work to the HP Beholder collection.

Now, with no further ado, here are this year's authors and artists revealed:

Artists: please give me the new links for your art as soon as you re-upload, so that I can update the coding. And Authors: if you'd like me to add a preferred redirect for your stories, just let me know!

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making this such a special community.
