Thank you!
Absolutely gorgeous. Most especially "Save Me" I'm blown away by the detail in each card. Bravo!
Thank you, love. I appreciate that!
Poor Draco, at least he has Harry to save him... once again. Nicely done, and great use of the prompt!
Thank you.
Beautiful, saying so much with so little. I especially love Draco's expression in 'Save Me - Seven of Coins.'
Thank you so much!
So exciting to see this in final form and in glorious color! I especially like "Take Me" (the shapely curve of Draco's leg) and "Redeem Me." Sweet, sexy, and elegant.
Thank you, my dear. And can I just tell you? "Some Day my Fic will Post" had me in tears, i was laughing so hard?
There is so much to love here. Great use of the prompt and such a perfect story told!

The transition into color is very well done.

Great job!
Thank you darling. Glad you like it! *wink wink*
Abso-bloody-lutely gorgeous. Wonderful storytelling and amazing use of the prompt. I love it ^^
Thank you so much!
You tell such a fantastic story--beautiful work.
Thank you!
Beautifully portrayed, the story unfolds with each of the cards and transitions perfectly from black and white to color! It's very Wizard of Oz... but HAWT!!!
Thanks, babe.
I really, really liked it. It hit all my right buttons. It's fanon all right, though, with prostitute!draco and all, but I loved the author's take on a scenario which is already a classic. I especially liked "take me", "help me" and "save me". The author's depiction of vulnerable, struggling, needs-to-be-saved Draco was a bit shocking (in the good way) and very accurate.

On an unrelated note, I find it very tedious that the readers/viewers should search themselves the web for each prompt. One, because on every tarot site the information is slightly different from the others, and two, 'cause you need to trouble yourself with meditating on how the author understood and used the prompt, whether it's this aspect or that aspect, whether it's a metaphor, etc. It gets mind-boggling and takes away from the fun of reading and voting. In this case in particular, I went and searched for every tarot card and tried to associate the image with the very abstract description on the website.

And the thing is, I think this effort is compulsory if one wants to vote fittingly for every piece, but at some point it becomes a chore. I don't see, however, how this could be changed.

On a second unrelated note, about the voting system. If I vote "1" it means I didn't like at all, and if I vote "9" it means I loved to pieces, right? I saw a comment the other day that made me ask myself whether I understood correctly.

Poking my head in in a mod-ly fashion to address quickly a few points that you brought up.

This is part of our problem as well. The tarot prompts were decievingly open ended and it would be unfair to the participants for us as mods to define the prompts for the voters when they had the opportunity to interpret the card as they saw fit. Authors and artists are free to link to and explain which interpreation of the card that they used.

If I vote "1" it means I didn't like at all, and if I vote "9" it means I loved to pieces, right?

You are correct.

I hope that helped to explain where we are coming from on a few points. We are always open to suggestions on how to improve the next round of the games, so feel free to email any more questions or concernes to us at hdworldcup@gmail.com .
oh my god, i am such a sucker for rentboy!draco.

that is all.
Me, too! Thanks so much.
Oh, beautifully done. Fanon all the way, and I love how each card has its own emotions and stories to it.
Thank you!
This was a really lovely way of working with the tarot prompt. I love the way you unfolded the story. I think I liked the 'save me' card best, with Draco's tear-filled eyes laying him bare.
Thank you, my dear. Yours was lovely as well! Congrats on that!
yeah rent!boy draco! a fanon classic!

draco is mouth-wateringly hot in the first card. the fifth card is by far my favorite (the seven of coins). draco looks so anguished, yet beautiful. and the detail on the hands is great. love the last frame too. the look on harry's face is filled with a protective tenderness and draco looks so relieved--truly redeemed. the background is great too.
Thank you so much!
This was so beautiful! I love them all!
Thank you.
