Opinion time!

Okay guys,

here is the promised post where you can say what you liked and didn't like about this years exchange. I'm gonna do a little poll but please say anything else in the comments (or via E-Mail if you prefer). And don't hesitate to critize please I always aim to improve!

And I want to take this opportunity to thank my co-Mod angelus2hot who did the assignments and took care of the community when I couldn't. I would have never been able to do this without you. Thank you so much! (you should all thank her too =) )

How did you like this years timeline

Were you satisfied with your assignment

No, why did you do this to me?

Where you satisfied with communication?

I would have liked more contact from the mods
I would have liked less contact from the mods
Answers took too long
Everything can stay like it was

What would you like to change next year?

Anything else?

As far as my own perception goes next years sign-ups need to be earlier and the time-line organised and followed through with better. Also I wasn't stringent with the fandom activities and maybe there should be one post for everyone to come together rather than a bunch of them. Additionally I wasn't always the best at staying in touch with people and answering messages in a timely manner.

Ps: I'm in contact with the three people that haven't posted yet. I might be looking for a pinch-hitter by the end of the week but let's hope it works out.

Little Update No 2

Hi guys,

so we have only three outstanding fics and I'm in contact with the authors in question. They are all positive of being able to post soon so I'm really hopeful of pulling this round off without a pinch-hitter. Thanks to everyone that offered! You guys are amazing :)

Once everything is posted I will make a feedback post because I'm hoping to do this again next year and I was wondering what you guys would like to happen differently.

All the love!
I hope 2015 started awesomely for you <3

Author's Note: I am so sorry I'm over two days late with this! But I really hope that you like it--I was so excited when I saw your prompt and "Supernatural crossed with any of my fandoms" as part of it.  For now, consider this complete, but I'm tempted to go back and write more in this "world", so there might be a sequel or something in the future.

Author's Note: Oh, Crystallove, my beloved pea, wife, double husband, daughter and sister... ♥ DO YOU EVEN REALISE HOW HARD IT WAS NOT TO REVEAL MY IDENTITY TO YOU IN THESE PAST DAYS? OMGGGG. Anyway, Happy New Year, bb, I love you so, so, so much and I really hope that you like this - I'm incredibly proud of how it turned out in the end! (I know that you technically did not even list Ella/Cygnus in your requests, but I just couldn't resist, so I do hope that you will forgive me there.) This whole fic is very much inspired by one of my favourite operas: Ludwig van Beethoven's Fidelio, which you should certainly listen into sooner or later. Lots of thanks also to wonderful Kristine for being the greatest and fastest beta and muse on earth, and also for involuntarily providing the perfect distraction! I adore you guys. ♥
