Pre-fest numbers!

Hi all! Esgee and I are excited to announce that we have received 24 acceptances for this year's Advent, so we are currently set on participants!

We're doubly excited to let you all have a sneak peak at our numbers this year! XD

At current standings:

89 nominations were submitted, with a total of 45 unique names. Of our 24 acceptances, 15 are first-time participants. That's over 60% brand-new to the fest. That's wonderful! We were thrilled to see that percentage.

Three more people are participating for the second time, giving us 18 participants in the "new" range, 75%. Amazing turn-out on nominations this year!

Our most-nominated participant had 7 nominations, in her first appearance in this fest. Wow!

All prompts have been sent out, and we are delightedly looking forward to seeing the works created this year. Stay tuned!

Get Ready for D/Hr Advent 2017!!

Dear Community,

Although this post is late, we are pleased to announce that D/Hr Advent will be returning this year for another great round! This year, the timeline is a little rushed but we hope that you'll bear with us!

Timeline:
September 15 - September 24: Nomination Phase
September 24 - October 1: Invitations Sent
September 24 - November 24: Creation Period
December 1 - December 25: Posting

Just like last year, we will still be posting to tumblr and in an effort to keep D/Hr Advent's tumblr the main resource (along with LJ and DW), we ask that all masterpost blogs reblog from our tumblr instead of the other way around.

We look forward to seeing each and everyone of you nominate and hopefully, participate in the Advent too, by either writing stories, creating art, or leaving kudos and comments over at AO3.

Best wishes,
[personal profile] esgeee  and [personal profile] musyc

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)
