[masterlist] year 2010

CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE~*~*


It is still October 10th somewhere in the world, right? ;w;
We have 30 stories and 38 pieces of illustrations for 21 stories, not exactly a satisfying ratio to me, but nevertheless, aren’t you all awesome? :D

Congratulations to all of the participants who’ve made it until the finish line! It has been a long, tiring, stressful 5 months and I am happy that this challenge has finally ended. /cry the tears of happiness

First of all, as the main mod of this challenge, I personally thank:
  • My two wonderful co-mods~*~* kupodesu and kasumicc, for accompanying me in this masochistic/ambitious plan. I apologise for dragging you both into this pit of hell.
  • All participants for signing up, writing great stories (of some I haven’t got the chance to read yet), drawing (very, very, very) beautiful arts, and for making it through the end.
  • slashy_lady for helping us designing the archive web and just being so awesome ♥


Without further ado, visit our archive website by clicking this banner below here.



In there you can see the complete masterlist for all the stories (and the link for their PDFs) and its accompanying arts, including the list of participants, and download link for the online compilation of all the stories (in pdf version), etc.

To those who want to go straight and read the stories, here’s a handy dandy list.

All stories in alphabetical order.

Story by: silverskies0117
Illustration by: Hannah Creech
World War II entered its final days in 1945. Battle torn and deeply wounded countries seek comfort in the hope of peace. With the Allies victorious, little chance for reconciliation is open for the Axis and Soviet dominated countries such as the future East Germany and Hungary. Gilbert leaves Elizaveta with just a key. To find out its purpose, Elizaveta must be strong enough to fight her way through the way's aftermath which is sometimes tougher than the war itself.

England is good at pretending that nothing’s changed. He’s gotten used to it beside America. And while they go their separate ways, he’s still tracing America’s footsteps. He’s still clinging to their Relationship, even while the other moves forward. All he’s left with is memories – memories warped by Lucy, the lovely Sunshine-on-Paper that keeps him feeling high. England is good at pretending that things can last forever, and that bliss taken from the hands of a Dealer can be anything but dangerous.

[FUNERAL PYRE]
Character(s)/Pairing(s): America/Russia, Canada/Prussia, England/France || Rating: || Warning: character death, book burnings
Story by: qualapec
Illustration by: mcmitters
“There was a silly damn bird called a phoenix back before Christ, every few hundred years he built a pyre and burnt himself up. He must have been first cousin to Man. But every time he burnt himself up he sprang out of the ashes, he got himself born all over again.” – Granger, Fahrenheit 451

Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 from America’s perspective. Censorship in a democracy only exists by consent of the governed. When America’s people turn away from books, toss them into the flames with their own hands and denounce individual thought in unity, he loses himself in kerosene, technology, consumption, and the gentle thrum of Seashell earbuds piping him mindless music and advertisements 24/7. But clarity sometimes comes too late, illumination of decay will lead to madness, and fire renders all sins irrelevant.

[SOME THINGS ARE BEYOND FOREVER]
Character(s)/Pairing(s): America/England, with appearance from France and Canada || Rating: PG || Warning: None that I can think of
Story by: slashy_lady
Illustration by: blulious and ruruushu
The pocket watch was merely a cheap imitation, a poor substitute after he had thrown away the real thing—the one which England had given him—in rage, hatred, and sadness. And perhaps it was the perfect metaphor for his relationship with England. He had broken the bond between them in betrayal, revolution, and blood, so they were stuck with the cheap imitation, the poor substitute of what they had once been in the past.

But maybe, together, they can make the so-called 'imitation' better than the real thing.

Story by: disownmereturns
The Six Degrees of Separation is the idea that everyone in this world is connected by at most six people. It’s an empowering, intimidating thought to know that the world can be shrunk within just one city and that lives begin to affect one another as people converge and intersect. Our story begins with a pair of brothers who manage a fruit shake stand in Dotombori, Osaka and bear witness to different fates being drawn together from all over the globe.
