HD_WORLDCUP: To squee or not to squee?

I spent an hour going back and forth on this. I just read the first four fics in the fest and while I want to ramble a bit about it all, there are some peeps on the f-list who might be staying mum till the end.

Yes, hd_worldcup is a competition. Yet it's also a celebration of all things H/D. Reading the fics today made me incredibly happy, especially after recent events.

And I know myself. I'll probably forget half of these thoughts in my head by the end of the fest. I won't remember my gut feelings. All the H/D fic will merge in memory and become one rollercoaster ride of fandom love - well, at least that's happened with other fandoms and fests in the past.

So I decided during my shower that y'know what? I need to get this out. I'll put it behind an lj-cut so that spoilery stuff won't be revealed.

Disclaimer of sorts: It's all relative.

I'm not going to tell you which fic is the best because it's all a matter of opinion and wholly subjective. However, I will say which fic I enjoyed the most and if there are any particular favorites.

Honestly in this particular fest, I don't expect to find many fics which I actively dislike - and so far everything posted has been a delight to read. Still, there are going to be fics that I like more than the rest.

I might mention things I found unexpected, unusual or not quite satisfactory. I might make comparisons between fics because most likely, I will have read them at around the same time.

If the thought of someone going ahead and doing this makes you angry, please feel free to defriend or skip the posts. Everyone has their own way of doing things and I won't hold it against you. And if anyone else is interested in talking about their reactions and thoughts and comparisons - well, do comment ^__^
