I'm so excited for oz_magi
! The quality of work in this fandom is just amazing, for both stories and art, especially considering how small we are. I hope this fest helps keep this fandom going for many more years to come!
On a (slightly amusing) related note... I think probably like everyone, I try to guess at who wrote what before the reveals, and I'm always terrible at it. Even if I've read every bit of Oz fic that a participant has written, I usually still have problems identifying that author. On the other hand, I'm usually pretty good at identifying who made what wish. I think the fandom is small enough so that I've kind of been able to zero in on who has what particular area/character/pairing/trope of interest.
This year, so far, I've gotten every wisher wrong. Every. Single. One. (Except for myself, of course.)
I guess I don't know y'all as well as I thought. Ha!
ALSO, I don't usually share personal stuff, but... say hello to the newest member of my family! :-)
We've named him Indy (as in Indiana Jones), which replaces his rather unimaginative birth name of B-1 (short for Black Cat Number 1, given to him to distinguish him from his litter-mates). He's 18 months old, and he's adorable. He still has a lot of playful kitten in him, even though he is BIG. He barely fits in my lap. And, boy, is he heavy, even if he doesn't look it at first (must be the slimming effect of all that black fur).
Our most recent cat died nearly 3 years ago, just a couple of months shy of his 20th birthday, which was a very traumatic experience for everyone involved, even though he'd obviously led a full life. And I've been very resistant to getting another cat because of FEELS, but I was talked into it, and I'm glad I was. Indy's a total sweetheart. ♥
