Rainbow || Rainbow northern lights.

(no subject)

The hoggywartyxmas reveals are up and so the large part of the part (masks on) is over for another year. I'm sure there will be stragglers like me remaining for a while to work through the material. (What a chore, to have to read and read and read through all this amazing writing. How on Mercury shall I manage.) I still have just over 115,000 words to read and comment on. I'm excited, but will take this set with less frenzy, so I can be guilt-free in getting to other tasks in my life.

I'm sad that I really only got to about half the entries before the reveals--way less than half the material--and even at that, 12 were within the last two days. (I think two days. Time has escaped me again...ah, life of a nocturnal person.)

an_fhanai wrote my stellar gift; that absolutely made my fest experience. I loved it! So I'm mentally sending a standing ovation that-a-way.

Hopefully there shall be a Next Year's Party, and even if I don't write for it, hopefully I'll at least keep up.

ETA: It also feels odd to not have read the stories by many of those I often read, before the reveals. I shall read them with reverence when I get to them, then. (Though I admit to already having read one of the longer ones, but didn't want to leave a comment until I had read it again, with whatever changes, as part of the fest.)

So that's a wrap--somewhat for me at least--on Hoggywarty this year! Guess I have no more reason to be awake at 5am (stayed up for the opening, thought I ought to stay up for the closing!). Sleep, then. Off I go to do that!
