Hello everyone!

bewarethesmirk and I were very touched and appreciative that people have been asking if we were having another round this summer, but sadly, since we both have incredibly busy summers ahead of us and would want to have time to run a good exchange, we will not be having a round this summer.

We apologize profusely to anyone we might disappoint, and want to thank everyone again for making the first round such a good experience!

We have, however, been talking of hosting a fall gen exchange to make up for this summer.

Nothing is definite yet, but we will let you know either way and will point you towards the new community if this does indeed happen!

Thanks for all your support, guys!

Your loving mods,
bewarethesmirk and alexajohnson

Hello Everyone!!

I regret to say that the 2007 Round of the Harry Potter SummerGen has finally come to a close, and what a fabulous first round it has been! Before I post the masterlist, a few very important Thank Yous are in order:

* Another to bewarethesmirk, for being Mod Extraordinaire during my long, unexpected absence into the realm of RL!

* To sambethe, st_aurafina, lyras, and catsintheattic, for kindly offering their pinch-hitting services under such short notice!

* An extra special mention to attilatehbun, conspiratorsb, deianaera, calembours, enchantedescape, such_heights, and paradise_loved, because they wrote a pinch-hit along with their original piece for the exchange!

* And, last but CERTAINLY not least--THANK YOU to everyone for participating and sharing your excellent fic and art with everyone. Your talents have been enormously appreciated, as has the warmth and friendliness of the atmosphere around here!!!

Now you are all free to post your work wherever you'd like, although if you would say that it was made for the hp_summergen exchange, we would greatly appreciate it!

And without further ado... the masterlist! If you spot any broken links/incorrectly spelled user names/etc, please bring them to our attention and we will fix them!

The Great Masterlist of 2007!Collapse )

Thank You once again for a fabulous exchange, and may this next year be a good one for you all!

Your loving mods,

alexajohnson and bewarethesmirk

Well, I'm sure you all have been aware that for the last couple months, bewarethesmirk has been doing all of the posting.

An unexpected RL opportunity arose at the very last minute around the end of June, which called me away from a reliable source of Internet access.

Though not of my own choice, I have been a very absent and neglectful co-mod for the majority of this exchange, and I just wanted to send out another PROFUSE thank you to bewarethesmirk, without whom this exchange would not have had much success.

So thank you my dear for all your extra hard work, and another thank you to all the participants for your beautiful stories, art, and friendliness!

I have officially - and finally - posted the last fic of the exchange.

I'm going to offer a few reading days for anyone to catch up. The last fics are just as exciting as ones at the beginning.

After a few days I'm going to post a masterlist for the big reveal!

Title: The World Is Waiting For You
Recipient: st_aurafina
Fic or Art: Fic
Rating: PG
Characters: Hermione, Luna, Lavender, Neville
Summary: Four scenes, four characters, one summer. A school, a place of things beyond their wildest imaginings, awaits.

Hermione liked the hot sun and the beach well enough, but it wasn't as good as the things she read about, stories about boarding schools and talking animals and magic wands.Collapse )

Title: Stillness and Constellations
Recipient: enchantedescape
Fic or Art: Fic
Rating: PG
Characters: Andromeda Black, Ted Tonks, Nymphadora Tonks
Summary: A war is never simple, and there are no undivided loyalties. Andromeda Black tries to deal with the First War.
Notes: Thank you to N. for putting up with writerly tantrums and the very quick beta job. Also, for informing me that no-one is, in fact, hyphenated.

(For those of you who haven't memorized the Black family tree, Andromeda Black was cast out of the family for marrying Muggleborn Ted Tonks.)
