Fic or Die 2015: A Master List

This year's Fic or Die challenge is now officially closed, and it has been a roaring success!

Thank you all so much for indulging me and playing along, embracing the pressure and fulfilling the demands of the fic-hungry goats. Some of you finished years-old stuff, some of you wrote brand-new things, some of you did both. Your administrators are most satisfied indeed!

We had 23 submissions from 17 fandoms, with a total wordcount of approximately ~34,000 words.


So give yourselves a big pat on the back, because you have all been phenomenal! A big thank you also to those who did not pledge to write, but contributed prompts, beta services, or general cheerleading.

As a final note, I KNOW YOU HAVE MORE. I could bully you all year, but I will leave it at telling you that I loved what you guys wrote for this, and I hope it will inspire you to keep going and maybe finish this piece or that and share. Don't be a fic hoarder! (Also if one of the prompts inspired you but you couldn't make time for this challenge, there's nothing stopping you from still filling it anyway!)


(Goats added by the lovely [info]lilithilien - yeah yeah, if you want to see Nasir instead, go on Tumblr! THIS WAS MY MOMENT IN THE SUN OF THIS SMILE.)
