Wow everyone! 21 days, 71 prompts, 29 fills, and 123,567 words* later, the math adds up to every last one of you being totally awesome Valdemar fans! We hope you had fun, because we sure did. Thank you to everyone who prompted, filled, and commented throughout the past three weeks, it’s been an absolute joy watching so many incredible fanworks come through. On that note:

1. 21 Days of Valdemar is now concluded, and the reveals party begins! Our AO3 collection has been de-anoned, and you’re welcome to comment logged-in on this post to share all the fills you posted, talk to each other, link to your AO3s and Tumblrs, etc.

2. Links to reposts are now allowed on the Main Post. If you cross-posted to AO3 already, or if you plan to eventually, you’re welcome to head back to the Main Post and drop a link under the prompt. The Main Post will be perpetually anon for commenting purposes, but don’t worry about hiding your identity.

3. Prompts are still there if you want them! If you feel like writing or drawing something inspired by a prompt now that the fest is over, you’re welcome to add to the AO3 collection at any point, and drop a link under the prompt on the Main Post.

4. 21 Days of Valdemar is over--what sits on the Main Post today is a testament to your hard work during these last three weeks. No new fills should be direct-posted to the Main Post, and we won’t be actively moderating or encouraging comments on the Main Post.

5. Tag any fill post on Tumblr with “21 Days of Valdemar” and we’ll reblog for a promo on the 21 Days Tumblr! It has to be one of the first five tags or it won’t show up in the tag feed. If you don’t have a Tumblr but would still like us to post about your fic, let us know here or drop us a link on Tumblr and we can make a new post to share for you. (Full Disclosure: we have like 8 followers so it’s not going to be a massive signal boost, we just really want to brag about all the awesome stuff you guys created!)

5. Feedback survey! If you feel like giving us your 2 cents via google form, you can do so here. We’d love to hear from you! :D

*6,000 of that being art fills, since a picture is worth a thousand words, of course ;)

I'm nen! I wrote one fic for this fest, and anybody who's been following my liveblogs of the series is going to be completely unsurprised by which one it is, but possibly surprised by the fact that I wasn't the one who prompted it in the first place.

"Unison" (Vanyel/Tashir, mutual dubcon canon divergence) - uploaded to AO3 under a different username because I don't want to confuse anyone following my main, also available with its prompt on the main post.

Because I haven't actually finished reading the series, I've been pretty wary of checking out any other fills, but what I have seen has been incredible. I'm looking forward to coming back and being able to fully enjoy everything you've created. This was the first fest I've ever participated in, and it's been an absolute blast!

I really enjoyed Unison! It was a fantastic read, really emotionally intense and so mixed up and I felt so badly for both of them. Really good work.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the series!

Unison was great! Such a hot mess.

Thank you! I think "hot mess" does sum it up pretty well, haha.

Thanks so much! I'm really glad it fit with the tone of the canon, at one point during the drafting process I was kind of just throwing italics and dashes at my text file and hoping for the best.

I have had so much fun with Valdemar, which is kind of weird for a series that is apparently all about punching me in the heart. It's been amazing, and I can't thank you enough for being such a big part of it!

At one point, I was beta-ing [personal profile] harukami's stuff and turned to her and was like "ok but in this part you need way more italics and Vanyel thinking at himself" and she just looked at me with this totally dead stare.

It was great.

I'm a huge fan of your Valdemar reviews. Incidentally, if you want to go on to Talia's series...

(Huge fan!)

And I prompted the Vanyel/Tashir one with the specific hope of luring you in to write it. \o/ feeling very pleased with myself, yes. :D

Thank you! I'm definitely planning to continue reading the rest of Valdemar.

Bless you, you knew exactly what would get me in here. I'm so glad you did, I had a ton of fun.
