Congrats to dkwilliams for 10 correct guesses! killabeez came in a close second with nine!

The most correctly guessed stories were mackiedockie's Best Laid Schemes, morgynleri_fic's Valföðr, and pat_t's A Caper A Day. And the most incorrectly guessed story was keerawa's The Paper Burns, but the Words Fly Free.

Warning to mackie, pat and morgynleri: apparently Diana and Killa are on to you. :) Keerawa, you keep doing what you doing.

Most importantly, none of you studs found me.

And now on to our reveals!Collapse )

I don't think I like the long drawn out posting we had this year. It feels like we should have had reveals already, and I think we'll do it the old way next year.

Once again, Methos was king. Joe was probably a good second, and Amanda coming in third. Wat!

We had three pinch hits, BUT two of those were done by independent contractors. The remaining one was done by an author, and THEN, two more authors signed up to pinch hit for the pinch hitters, so THE CIRCLE IS CLOSED. So when you guess, realize that three authors have repeated themselves. And that some people who received a story did not turn one in. HAAAHAHAAAH SUCKERS.

We had…no porn, IIRC. We had lost of historical smattering, some FUTUREFIC, some spacefic, and OMG STEALING THINGS. SHENANIGANS. CAPERS.

31st-Dec-2013 08:45 pm - Happy Holidays, keerawa!
Title: Everything to Bid, Everything to Lose
Author: The Jug Band
Written for: keerawa
Characters/Pairings: Joe, Methos/OFC
Rating: G
Word count: 6,000
Author's Notes: You asked for a scenario in which the Watchers got something wrong in Methos' chronicle and he wants it corrected, but it occurred to me more that Methos would care less about his record, spotty as it was, and more that the Watchers might have certain documentation that he might prefer to possess himself. And so. Also, my knowledge of history is shoddy, supplanted with only descriptions from Anne Rice vampire novels. Sry.
Summary: But this time, it was a little different—he had something that Methos had created, once owned, and based on his response at the auction, was very interested in getting back.
