A FanFiction contest had never been attempted before - and honestly - we were shocked with the caliber and sheer amount of talent in the community. Going forward, we've learned a lot and want to provide more FanFiction contests in the future - but better.
Thank you to all the incredible participants and writers of the community (and readers). We were truly taken on a magical journey.
