The Final Showdown Round Up  
This post is DH spoiler-free.

Sixteen pieces of art from ten artists, thirty-four fics (including seven multi-chaptered efforts) from twenty-seven writers, and five weeks later, we're just about ready to be thinking it's award time!

On Friday, 27th of July we will be kicking off the community vote. This gives y'all a few days to catch up on the entries from the last week that the reading of some pesky book might have got in the way of. We will ask you to nominate your favourite fic and your favourite piece of art for the Community Choice award. The voting will close on Wednesday, 1st of August, so you will have a few extra days to have a jolly good think.

On Sunday, 5th of August we will be announcing the winners of all the awards for the Last Chance Full Moon Showdown.

As you're catching up on your reading, please do take a few moments to leave the author or artist a few words. So much effort has been put into all the work that's been posted here, and it always means a lot to hear from fellow members. :)

So with out further ado, here is the master round up post for the Last Chance Full Moon Showdown:
