Oh lordy! THANK YOU!  
I'm slumping off to bed, but first I had to say a ginormous THANK YOU to calanthe_fics , cassie_black12 , jamie2109 , lotus_lizzy , luci0logy , marguerite_26 , raitala  and libby_drew  for the incredible amount of brains and work they have all donated over the last five days to make azkatrazathome  such a roaring success.

AND love especially to empress_jae  who I  DID  have in that paragraph originally, but managed to delete while making into an lj icon (because I  am a Luddite and an idiot). Jae, you were the sine qua non of this whole exercise, and you even put up with my appalling undies jokes. You rule!

I'll post something more sensible soon, with links to some of the high points and some of the roundtable conversations that should keep going, but for now, I am just filled with gratitude to those amazing women who made an idea into a comm in a week.

And THANK YOU, too, to everyone who came to read, write, talk and chat. You were all so wonderfully fun and clever and not once grew impatient with our understandable slapdashery. The next few weeks are going to be filled up for me with reading through all of your amazing words, and laughing again at the drawbles of doom. You're all terrific and I'm going to break the habit of a lifetime and just go for a group hug. *MWAH!*

Thank *you* for bringing the idea to fandom!

It's an awesome con-comm!

I wish I could have participated more, but I got a tiny bit emo and silent after watching HBP. Thankfully, there were crack-drabbles to write to lift the mood. :-)

You lot KILLED ME DEAD with those drabbles! (And I still haven't seen HBP, this week!)

This was such a fantastic idea, I just wish I'd had more time to participate.

But I'm adding the drabbles and fic to my very long reading list and will definitely keep an eye out for your rec post. : )

It's staying up, feel free to drop by later, I know I'll still be lurking!

Poor old Janna!

ARGH! I had her there! Fixed now!

(Thank goodness I thought I would do one last check before sleep ...)

It was a fabulous idea. I'm just sorry I couldn't participate, or even read more than I did---I got involved in my betaing duties and by the time I got there for a look, it was fantastically overwhelming. I think this says a lot about you, inspiring so much creativity and debate. You are a star.

It says that I have exquisite taste in friends, as you prove.
libby_drew on July 20th, 2009 04:34 pm (UTC)
I shouldn't even be on this list.

It was amazing. And also, not over yet. ;)

Thank YOU too! What a wonderful idea you all had ... it's really been a lot of fun. I've been wishing I'd had more time this weekend to hang out and participate, but I scanned several discussion topics with great interest and was seriously blown away by the drabbles and art. :)

I'd never imagined something like this could work so well. And the good news is, it will still be around; I know I want to go back and read through the topics on writing in more detail.

Really, thank you all so much!!!

Thank you for having such a fab idea, and for allowing me to be part of it! This is the first time I've done anything mod-like, and I was quite nervous about it. But you and the other girls have all been lovely to work with.

I'm having an absolute blast!

It was (and still is! for a full day more) a great piece of fun! I was working half the time and repairing the roof the other half, but in between I managed to sneak in some round table discussions, and it was very thought-inspiring! (Not to mention I met new people! Whom I liked lots!) Thank you for the wonderful idea and the whole lot of effort, Bram! :gives back a hug:

I'm just here to join in the group hug.

I LOVE YOU! And, as you will have noticed, I just spammed my flist with az@home crack drabbles! Bwah-hah-hah! You are brilliant, I shall hug you for real in a few weeks (and give you jam, and cordial)!
