As always, I have to say that the real winners are the fans who get to enjoy the stories and art and cool creations submitted here, so thanks again A MILLION to everyone who participated. You have no idea how much I love this seasonal event.
Winners can say thanks in this thread and peoples can give their congrats but winners please send me your addresses in PM (if you think I don’t already have it!) so I can get your prizes out. Maybe I’ll get a chance to beat the holiday rush at the post this year, but don’t count on it! I actually have all the prizes “in stock” this year with the exception of the pheleon plushie that will be made soon.
Click on the names of the winners to view or read their lovely works again!
Please pardon my Ishida and Orihime plushies showing off prizes in some of the pics below—they somehow got in front of the camera and started posing.
