    Ah yes, I was able to read through my story quite a while ago, and I loved the way it all went down! I thought it was a clever combination of BOTH of my prompts! Which, in hindsight, I suppose I should have provided more prompts to give more room for different writing styles, but regardless, I was very impressed at being able to combine both into a fairly long piece! Definitely glad I was able to participate in this event.

    Starlight Aurate Just a fallen star

    You're very welcome! That was my favorite part to write, too, and it was kinda the whole inspiration for the rest of the fic. I'm glad you liked it, and so glad I got to participate this year after I missed out last year!

    And I already sent a private message to my secret Santa, but I just want to say thank you for sending me the deleted scenes! Even if you didn't use them, they were hilarious and I'm glad I got to see them!

    Also, as the rest stated, I love the site! I'm definitely in favor of using it or something similar to it in future years.

    So I pretty much blitzed through my story the instant the site went live and I loved every second of it. Thank you so much @DeliriousAbsol!! I actually had no idea you were my author! I had kinda guessed it was one of our resident PMD specialists, and had ruled out a couple people, but hadn't managed to zero in on you (was anyone able to guess their author?) Maybe because you were saying your entry was really cheesy, but it didn't seem that way to me. xD I had totally forgotten my prompts too (lol they were made up on the spot while I was at a convention) and wasn't even really too concerned with what sort of fic I got, but you really went all-out with the fun details (I loved the mob rattata party! I halfway wanted Zorua to move in with them, haha.) And you even nailed the tone that I prefer, what with all the negative feels in the first half while still managing to have everything turn out well in the end. (I actually considered specifying that I prefer that tonal structure in my prompts, but left it out in case it was too limiting.) You really made my Christmas. ;)

    Thanks tons to the mods for hosting and Dragonfree for making the mini-site with the hidden author tags (as the others have said, it was an excellent idea that I'd love to see come back in future years.)

    Well I'm a bit late to the party, but oh my goodness @Negrek , your piece was absolutely fantastic. I feel like you hit everything I love with your fic, from Falkner and FatherlyShipping to Swablu and Pidgeot. The romantic style was beautiful, and the plot was very creative with Swablu preferring conducting to singing. To be honest I think it would've been fun if Swablu's young trainer turned out to be someone important like Kahili, but I love how Falkner was happy to help Swablu. In all honesty I absolutely adore your older and wiser Falkner because he's more experienced than he is in the Johto games but still the bird enthusiast we all know and love. Thanks a million, honestly.

    Psychic Really and truly

    I only just got to read my gift after a week without internet, but huge thank you @Chibi Pika! I'm so thrilled that you chose that prompt and I loved how you showed Wes's struggle with helping Quilava while also reflecting on how he is totally the wrong person for this but damnit he has a responsibility to do what he can to take down Cipher! I loved all the Pokemon interactions and your descriptions of Agate and hoping for Celebi for Quilava's sake. And the overall tonal shift and little things like starting to refer to Quilava as she. Thank you so much for such a lively and heartwarming fic!

    I'm so glad you liked it!! I had to rewatch the Lucario movie again to refresh my memory and it made me cry again, so I really liked getting to explore their relationship more! Guess who's becoming a big fan of these characters!!


    Big thank you to my fellow mods for putting this together, and Dragonfree's super cute site! Happy holidays, everyone!
