I just wanted to remind everyone that the 2018 marathon has begun!

We'd love to have you reading along with us! You can see the new stories as they are posted on the LiveJournal community: https://iwry-marathon.livejournal.com/

We're also chatting on Tumblr and on Buffy-Boards.

dcai0830 and I are both writing again this year, and fluffernutter8 will be too! Plus, we have new writers signed up, including the author of the first fic, MyImmortalLoves. (It's a lovely story and a great start for the marathon!)

Just a reminder that we've got a bumper crop of excellent new B/A fics just waiting to be read! Here's a roundup of the stories so far:

Week 1
Week 2

Plus yesterday's amazing story from dcai0830 aka Mrs Gordo: Time

I think I've counted five new writers this year, which is especially exciting!!

And just as a sidenote: If anyone is in touch with Chrislee, will you please offer her bags of cash and B/A kisses to bring Octaves back up? I've PM'd her but haven't heard back.

I decided to drop by to express my appreciation for this year's marathon. It's been such a fun year with some stories that are now part of my favorite fanfics ever. The B/A fandom doesn't have that many writers (though I'm surprised to see so many new writers this year), but we sure have quality!! Wink

If you read a fic that you love and want to hear the author discuss their writing process, don't forget to submit it to the Sunnydale Fanfic Club podcast https://thesunnydalefanficclub.com/submissions/

I submitted Time (which is a must-read!!!!) and I'll submit other fics for sure before the end of the marathon. Just waiting to see what else Grace has up her sleeve Smile (And I still have some fics to catch up on...)

We had a great marathon year! Here is a cross post from our IWRY Marathon blog with some information on this year's marathon. https://iwillrememberyoumarathon.tumblr.com/post/180879882406/thank-you

I hope it is a sign of great things to come!

--------

THANK YOU…
We wanted to take some time to send a warm thank you to you all for making our 15th annual IWRY marathon a great success!

Here are some fun stats about the 2018 IWRY marathon:

✯We had 28 stories published in our IWRY collection this year which is the most stories we have had in a marathon since 2013 (at that time we had 30 stories published).

✯ We had 14 authors who participated in our marathon. That includes 6 new contributors to the marathon, including:

@kateykakes (headupheelsdown)
@buffy-angel-and-co (Mylie)
@melacka
Bangel4ever
myimmortalloves
Golden_Slayer
Our 8 veteran writer participants were:

@theawkwardterrier (fluffernutter8)
WillowFromBuffy
Darlingvioletta
Aaronlisa
a2zmom
@angelus2hot
@gracenm
@mrsgordo84
✯ Our authors published 180,055 words of fan fiction this year, which is a remarkable increase from last year’s 82,070 words written.

✯ Our 2018 collection included chaptered fics, one-shots, AU’s, missing scenes, and drabbles. There were fluff pieces and heartbreaking pieces and everything in between.

Thank you so much to all of our writers for your hard work and your participation this year. We hope you will join us for many years to come so that we can continue this great tradition that celebrates one of the most compelling and iconic couples in pop culture. Don’t forget to support and encourage other writers who may be interested in participating in the future.

And of course, to all of the readers, thank you so much for your readership. Your kudos & comments, your comments & feedback on Buffy Boards, and your reblogs of these great stories encourage future creative works and keep our community, and this marathon, alive. Please continue to read, share, and engage with our writers.

We will post be posting the master list for all stories this Sunday for our final roundup. Stay tuned for some announcements on some exciting content our blog will be bringing your way!

Thanks for being such excellent hosts! I'm still very slowly working my way through all of the fics, and there have been some really great ones Smile
