THE STATE OF THINGS: [Apr. 23rd, 2010|12:20 pm]
The Dark Angel Halloween Ficathon

With the Pulse looming in a few months time and waning interest in this particular community, I'm going to go ahead and pull the plug on da_halloween. We had no one posting for this past challenge and while I get that's always been the spirit of this, 'post if you can, if not, don't worry about it,' I recognize that there is a difference between that philosophy and no interest at all.

And that's all right. My interest is pretty much gone as well. The posts will stay up. The claims lists and such and I hope that people will still drop by and use this place for inspiration if they like.

I will not be running any more challenges. If someone else would like to take over mod-duties, they can feel free to comment here and I'll gladly turn over the reigns but for now I'm sticking a fork in us.

Sometime soon, I will be posting a compilation post of all fics ever completed for this particular comm. It will be an awesome going away party.

Thank you so much for NEARLY TWO YEARS of crackfic, horror and holiday cheer.

Thanks =)

I had a great time while it lasted. It's been one of the few places in the DA fandom that I've really just love everyone involved.

Glad I could be of some service. It was fun while it lasted. I'm a little sad to see it go.

Let me echo everyone else's sentiments and thanks for this community. It's a bit sad that people's interest (mine included) have faded, but it really did rock.

It happens. It filled a need in the DA fandom that really needed to be filled. Kind of a refuge from ship wars and the like. I'm sorry to see it go but it seems like it's run its course.

Thanks for this and providing us with the horror and crack side of DA. (Of which I still think you're the unchallenged master)

I feel like, selfishly, this com was at least a little bit run so I could get my crack!DA fix sometimes. DA still needs to embrace it's crack fic. You should totally take up the master's position. =)

PS: May is Zombie awareness month!

I'm sure you know and are celebrating, but I stumbled across this and Zombie – ITL is a Pawlov-reflex...
