What's Taters, Precious?

Dear Members,

No doubt you will have noticed that though December is upon us, metamorfic_moon has not announced our annual Fic Advent. Indeed, you've probably noticed we've not had a proper event here since last year's Winter Hallows Advent. Though it's sad, particularly at this time of year, we your moderators feel that it's the appropriate time to announce that, like all good things, metamorfic_moon must come to an end. Or a final resting place.

And good hardly goes far enough to describe Meta. When godricgal and I launched it way back in the summer of 2006, we hoped it would be a place where R/T fans could come together and create art and fic that celebrated these characters and explored their relationship in ways that hadn't been done before while improving our crafts. Five years and five mods later (jdbracknell helping through the early years and shimotsuki through our more recent ones), we never dreamed we'd have nearly five hundred members who have produced more than five hundred fanworks between them. Not only that, but who formed a real community that had more events after JK Rowling brought our favorite characters to such an unfortunate end, and made them live on in all our imaginations. That's something to be truly proud of, but what we take away from this whole experience of moderating metamorfic_moon is not pride in our accomplishments, but in yours, without whom none of this would have come to be.

So, in that spirit, we'd like to give Meta a final send-off by handing the community over to you. For the remainder of the month of December (and probably into January, because what would Meta be without a deadline extention? ;)), posting access will be opened for everyone who's a member of metamorfic_moon who'd like to take a moment to share anything related to R/T or to Meta: a new artwork/fic, a re-post of an old artwork/fic, a rec, a discussion topic that never came up, a reflection on your art/writing, or just what Meta means to you.

We cannot thank you enough for turning these last five years from mousy brown to vividest pink by putting a little more R/T love in the world.

Much love and merry Christmas,

mrstater, godricgal, gilpin25, and shimotsuki
