hd_worldcup roundup

Those who don't care about Harry Potter fanfic may ignore this post.

All others, read on.

I'd been meaning to post this for a week or more, but then I kept thinking the reveal of authors at hd_worldcup was imminent, so I figured, wait and properly credit each story. The reveal has finally been posted, so... congratulations Team Epilogue, and congratulations Team Canon for winning my personal tally ;-) and below are my favorite stories/art. (Though really, the mod said only 10 points separated first and fourth place--very close! Boy am I glad I voted on every piece.)

For those who didn't follow the H/D Worldcup, there were four teams: Canon, Fanon, Epilogue, and EWE (Epilogue, What Epilogue?) and the prompts were almost entirely tarot-based.

Homecoming by novembersnow for Team Epilogue [Temperance]

... and I'll add a couple more as I re-skim.

What I'm taking away from all this is... 1) clearly melusina is queen of my personal worldcup, as both of her stories made my faves 1a) or oldenuf2nb, 1b) or scrtkpr, 2) The Devil and The Tower are apparently my favorite cards, and 3) lots of the writers and artists I listed above are totally unknown to me, so I have some new folks to follow!

Thanks for a lovely worldcup, everyone.

Now on to the Snarry Games....
