Looking Back Over Six Years (Mods, Questions, and Statistics)  

A Brief Introduction

D/HR Advent began in 2011, after the closing of the dramione_advent community. The fest has been running for six years, from 2011 to 2016. It's inspired by seasonal Advent calendars, where one small gift is available every day from December 1 through December 24.


Mods through the years:

2011: Jela_Ow, kyri07, and Boundbooks.

2012: Jela_Ow, justamuggle, and Boundbooks.

2013: Boundbooks with daily posting assistance of SlytherinGurrl(Esgee) and Musyc.

2014-2016: SlytherinGurrl(Esgee) and Musyc.


Esgee is primarily responsible for:

  • collecting and counting nominations

  • sending invitations

  • verifying acceptances/declines/non-responses

  • assigning prompts

  • granting extensions


Musyc is primarily responsible for:

  • double-checking nomination counts

  • checking works – completion status, word count, formatting/HTML

  • verifying pinch-hits

  • doing the daily posts/weekly round-ups


All works are hosted and revealed on Archive Of Our Own. News, nomination period announcements, daily posts, etc. are all posted to LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, and Tumblr.


(NB: Any and all percentages in this post may have a small +/- variance due to how Excel rounds numbers. Or due to my usual method of begging someone else to do the math. I crunch numbers as a last resort. If there’s an arithmetic error, I apologize. -- Musyc)
