worldcup reveal tonight :)

So there's a ten point difference from the first and last team in the fest. In the end, the votes might only really matter to fest participants (and even then, maybe not all of them).

Personally, I found the voting far more subjective than the reccing, because while I at least knew which fics I loved personally enough to call favorites and therefore rec, assigning values to numbers is much harder. Not to mention, everyone's way of voting is different.

And while I tend to lean towards Epilogue, Canon IMO also had a strong showing. However there are shippers who don't read Epilogue fics and others who did not like certain Canon!fics for the lack of a happy shipper ending. There were also peeps who just adored the EWE and Fanon entries. Ultimately though I guess the tiny point gap shows it wasn't so much about anything other than the H/D lovin'.

The thing about the hd_worldcup that I adored was the generally fabulous fic. The competition aspect led to a lot more good reads than I typically expect from a fest. I'll always look back on the fest's posting period of shiny fanworks with fond memories ♥
