A Few Closing Notes

All good things must come to an end and so too must our exchange.

I'm terribly pleased with how their_white_day turned out. So terribly pleased. There were a few small bumps in the road, but nothing that could not be overcome.

I've a few things I'd like to say before we officially close up shop for a year.

To the authors and artists: Thank you so much for all your hard work. There's a great deal of wonderful contributions to fandom here. And I'm proud to have each of you in this exchange. I'll be reviewing all of your work within the next 24 hours or so before I post the masterlist and edit the entries to reveal the names.

Please take the time to read and review all of the wonderful entries between now and then. Feedback is a lovely gesture to someone who has worked very hard.

As soon as I post the masterlist tomorrow, you are free to post the submission you've created elsewhere. Please just note that it was written for their_white_day.

This fest was a lot of work. I don't mind saying this because it was worth it to me, and hopefully to all of you. However, there are a few people I need to thank. Without them, this would have been a lot harder, even perhaps impossible.

1. ulqui. Thank you so much for making the icons. I truly appreciate it. They look absolutely lovely.

2. djin7. Thank you so much for posting on Katrina's birthday. It was nice to be able to just enjoy her and not have to worry about formatting posts.

3. emothy Thank you for pinch hitting for me. It's a noble calling and you stepped up admirably.

4. Thank you to the participants that were gracious enough to be reassigned and/or have their gifts reassigned. It made things a lot easier and less stressful during that transition time.

5. Last, but certainly not least, thank you, endlessly, evaporate. Without you, this fest wouldn't have been possible. It started out as a mini-dream between us and you've helped me with everything the whole way. Thank you for helping with the layout, the user info page, a power trio icon, and looking over all mod entries.

Thank you for listening to me complain, for pinch hitting when I was desperate, for helping me through all difficulties, for betaing anyone I sent your way.

Thank you for posting when my computer died, for texting me with important information, for talking with me on the phone and helping me deal with everything.

Thank you for being the glue that held me together when I felt like quitting, moving to a tropical island, and drinking from a coconut with umbrella and thin straw. I can't possibly say how much I've leaned on you, how much I've depended on you, and how much appreciate all that you've done. So, I'll say thank you, likely not for the last time, and leave it at that.

Here's hoping I've not forgotten anyone. If I have, kick me and I'll edit you in.

Now for the fun part!
Guess who wrote/drew what!
Here's the rules.
1. Post your guesses in this post.
2. Don't answer if you know for a fact who did what. Say, for instance, if you were the beta or the person told you what they did.
3. Don't confirm or deny if a person guessed right.
4. The person who guesses the most things right gets...Something.

I'd be amazed if I got more than one right... but hey, the more I guess, the better the chance of getting one right! 8DDDDD

Cherry blossom picture by shin_e
Windfall by sesame_seed (actually maybe Heartless.... gah can't decide. Maybe both guesses are wrong anyway)
Mutually Kept Promise by nana_chibi
Untitled (for evaporate) by trancekuja
My words just break and melt by _hilde
Hobbyist by arithion

*ducks for cover*
I'm going to guess that evaporate wrote "Crossing the Desert", and starlighter wrote Windfall. *crosses fingers*

'M gonna regret doing this. >.> "Crossing the Desert", ayalesca.
Nope, still can't edit comments. >.<

"A Good Death" for kishmet by evaporate and (ART) "Cherry Blossoms" for evaporate by shin_e.
Here are my guesses:

The ones that I am proud to say I guessed:
aggy - Apologies
ashesto - (Fifteen.)
evaporate - Hobbyist

The stabs-in-the-dark:
arithion - Windfall
ele5 - Menuet in G Major
kishmet - Mundi Universitas
reddwarfer - The Rain in Kyoto
trixie_chick - Portrait of a Soul
yuki_scorpio - Scuba Diving

And I REALLY WANT TO KNOW who wrote:
- Crossing the Desert
- Heartless
- all the fics I guessed wrong ^_^;;;
since i [shamelessly] claim myself as shin_e addict, Cherry Blossoms is definitely hers. as for Heartless.. was written by leila [could be wrong, but it feels like you].

i also wanna know who drew the pencil sketch for Chryssa. man, the power of domesticity...
Thank you for organising this lovely event! It has really been a well-run one. (I haven't had much time to look at fanwork lately, but I've seen many of the earlier ones that I've enjoyed and am happy to know that there'll be more to see when I'm free.) Actually, I have been kinda out of touch with the ZukaFuji fandom before I joined this event, and I'm really delighted to discover that there are such talented people producing ZukaFuji fanwork now~♥
Since I know absolutely no one in this fandom other than shin_e and she has already been guessed at... D: I will not randomly grope around in the dark. Cept maybe evaporate wrote the wonderful cacti story? :)

Anyway, thank you so much for doing this. With a project this large-scale, it was a surprise not to have more bumps along the road. You did a wonderful job as a mod. :D ♥
(I think I screw up with my previous reply - or Lj is screwing up on me >_< )

I really enjoy the feast, although a bit sad when it comes to the end, but stil, thanks so much for arrange this wonderful even for TezuFuji fandom. I really admire how you dedicate yourself to the com and to every piece of works, thank you!!

Guessing game:

Cherry Blossoms : shine_e
Perfect Circle : ele5
Orange Crush : ellipsesbandit
A Good Death : Trixie_chick
Apologies : Aggy (the other guess for Aggy is The Final Shot - I am not sure ^^;;)
New Album : Ruji
Folktale : eliza_natsuko
Cognitive Dissonance : Yuki_Scorpio
Crossing the Dessert : evaporate

Thank you so much for organizing this exchange. I'm going to miss seeing the posts on my f-list every day. I probably can't guess fics, I haven't really been in the fandom that long and even in those fandoms I know the writers I never guess anyone right.

Sending a huge thanks for putting all the effort in :)

Was a huge success.

My guesses would be horrible, so I'm not going to venture any. I'll just wait in anticipation!
Thank you for organising this event. It's been a lot of fun even if I was just watching :-)

And I see that some of the authors have been revealed, so I'll keep my random guessings to myself.

Thanks again!
A million thanks for putting this project together. I haven't finished reading all the entries but I'm sure everybody did an amazing job.
