Here to another successful year!!
This past year has been a hard one and this community runs the way it does because I relied on my wonderful co-mods. Special thanks to our mods, candream, ,eurydice72, and aeris444. They keep things going smoothly.
There are many things that we want to accomplish with the community in the upcoming year. We are always looking for things that interests you and that are fun/challenging to do.
Also, there’s an AO3 Holiday Exchange Fest 2019 Collection if you wish to post your work on AO3.
