I almost don't want to put this up because this is the official official end to je_whiteday and I DON'T WANNA. *sobbing*
♥ First of all, thank you to helenmaldon and reiicharu for pinch hitting for us! Also, a big thanks to kanarazu for your beta-reading.
♥ Dear Reen/dalampasigan, I don't even want to write this because holy hell, we're ending after this year. This exchange wouldn't have been anything without you by my side. I don't know how we did it for seven years, but I've loved every year. Even through the headaches and the time restraints and us scrambling EVERY YEAR to write our own fics. I really don't know how we did it, but we did and it's been a blast and I would not have asked for a better partner on this journey. Thank you so much for roping me in. Or being roped in? I honestly don't remember who actually started this, but whichever of us, YOU WERE THE BEST CO-MOD I COULD'VE ASKED FOR. ♥♥♥ We'll always have Whiteday. ♥♥♥
♥ DEAREST KAMI/TIN YANGL/tinyangl, everything you wrote to me is everything I want to write to you, and if I could only copypaste it I would XDDD Kidding aside, even if we've decided this will be the last time we're doing je_whiteday, I think I will subconsciously think we're doing it again next year. You have always, always been the yang mod to my yin bitchy modding ♥ And I will forever remember this exchange with fond memories. Alsoooo I can't remember who started this either hahaha but since I don't want to point fingers at myself, I will point them to
♥ Thank you to this year's participants. We might've been the few, but we were still the mighty. There were such amazing contributions this year. Sure, it was only 10 fic, but they were great and if we were going to go this year, well, I think you guys helped us go out with a bang. Thank you so much for writing, for reading, for commenting. Honestly, the reason we did this every year was for you guys and we never would've had the motivation if we didn't have the call for it.
♥ And not just the participants, thank you to everyone who's followed Whiteday even if you haven't written. You've commented and showered us with love and we love that you guys have enjoyed all the JE!het that we've been able to provide. ♥♥
♥ All in all, je_whiteday has been our baby for seven long years. They've been rough from times, but we've never wanted it any other way. For all those who stuck with us through all seven years (omg, hi, it's been a long journey), or came in half way (omg, hi, it's still been a long journey), or only came this year (omg, hi, read all our old fic they're also good), THANK YOU. You guys are the best and we love you dearly. ♥
and so for the last time...
(you know you love us)
