The sshg_promptfest 2016 Summer Reveal & Gratitude Post!

Dear sshg_promptfest Members & Watchers,

I hope that you enjoyed the 2016 summer run of the SSHG Prompt Fest, and I want to thank everyone involved for keeping the SSHG ship afloat on LJ waters through another splendid fest! Particularly at a time when the draw of other fan-friendly platforms is strong, it was good to see so many people new to LJ participate. I include Posting Mod in this, as it was she who kept our entries posting when I could not. *clings gratefully to Posting Mod* Now, I'm not going to break the hit counts for our works down into specifics, but I will tell you that they were quite gratifyingly high. Perhaps next run, dear lurkers, you'll feel more comfortable engaging with us; you're more than welcome to do so! From the shortest note of thanks to the longest squee, there's nothing better, as a creator, than knowing one's work is appreciated. *'s commenters, reccers, and reviewers*

As well, I give tremendous thanks to you, prompters, for inspiring us to bring new SSHG-themed fan works into the world: Anonymous, Anonymous, Anonymous, adelaidearcher, banglabou, bonsaibetz, droxy (via my self-prompt), hiddenhibernian (via self-prompt), jadeandjuniper, lenaa1987, mywitch, palathene, stronghermione1, themightyflynn, too_dle_oo, and willibald (via self-prompt) each inspired one work; articcat621, delphipsmith, dragoon811, hikorichan, leontinabowie, and ms_anthrop each inspired two works; and toblass inspired three works, one via self-prompt. We couldn't have done it without you, prompters!

Creators, we did it! With the help of our support teams—alpha and beta readers, cheerleaders, formatters—we were able to enrich the SSHG fandom with 31 new fan works! Congratulations and kudos, everyone; our efforts and energy resulted in the happy entertainment of many, and we should all be proud of ourselves! Several of you, I know, had personal challenges to manage in order to participate, and I'm so glad that you were able to do so; the fest wouldn't have been nearly as successful as it was without your participation. *smooches* (For myself, I'm just glad I finally met a deadline and didn't have to kick myself out of my own fest for once!) *\o/*

Now that the reveal is up, we're free to post our fest entries to our journals and archives, and to reply as our fandom selves to the comments that we received (unless *coughs* that's not necessary because one employed a comment-answering sock account to pseudonymously answer one's comments during the fest *coughs*). Next year, trolls permitting, it's my hope that I won't have to disable anonymous commenting in the community.

One last thing: As soon as life permits, I'm going to post about just how to encourage the answering of our previous runs' unanswered prompts. We might accomplish this in the form of one long, open-ended claims post of unanswered prompts, or through a fest featuring nothing but the unanswered prompts of SSHG Prompt Fests past—or perhaps in a manner that one of you will suggest in comments. I'd very much like to see the well of inspiration that is our surfeit of unanswered prompts promoted so that creators might take inspiration from it and share their resultant fan works here with other like-minded fen. That is the point of the sshg_promptfest, after all!

Without further ado, I present the sshg_promptfest 2016 Summer Reveal!
