Elysian Fields’ second-ever Mystery Month event is over! Please read to the end for your chance to decide the fate of this event going forward.
Big congratulations to everyone who took part. In particular:
- 24 Authors
- 18 Banner Artists
- 21 Beta Readers
Between them, participating authors wrote 572,061 words across 120 chapters, and 218 members left comments, of which 46 commenters met the requirements for an award. All comments for the event totalled 1076, and the new stories generated for this event received a total of 2146 likes.
If you’re yet to check out any of the brand new challenge fics, you can FIND THEM ALL HERE.
Many, many thanks to everyone who took part, in whichever way you contributed. All participating authors, betas, artists, and commenters should now have the relevant awards on their profiles. If you seem to be missing one, or anything else seems not quite right, please drop us a line at email@example.com
Originally, this was going to be the last EF Mystery Event year, to be replaced with another event (replaced, because adding new events at this point would be overkill, we think). But the reception and feedback we received during the event made us reconsider, and we decided that you, the members, should tell us if you'd like the Mystery Event to continue with a few modifications, or if you'd instead be interested in the event we were going to launch in its place: Drabble Mania.
Drabble Mania would go as follows: members will be able to suggest more fic prompts, and then authors who sign up will be issued a prompt at random, for which they’ll write a one-shot of up to 1,000 words. (Drabbles are defined elsewhere as stories 100 words or under, but our archive says they count up to the 1k mark.)
Please VOTE HERE for which event you’d like to see happen next summer.
**UPDATE** You had your say and the Google Form is now closed for further responses. Going forward, we will be alternating the new event with bringing back Mystery Month. Thank you to all who voted!
