 Okay guys, now it's time for the reveal of Mini-Round 005: Winter! Even though this was a mini-round during a very busy time of year and with a limited word count, our authors still managed to turn out over 8,500 words of fic. Impressive work, everyone! So, without further ado...
Our Authors!

Thank you to everyone for such a great round!
Best Guesser
Congratulations to [personal profile] qem_chibati  with 4 correct out of a possible 7 (57%)! Honorable mention goes to [personal profile] trixie_chick  with a still admirable 1 correct out of a possible 8 guesses (15%).
ID Challenge
Congratulations to [personal profile] qem_chibati , who correctly guessed that this round's IDs were translations for "snow" in different languages! Great job!
Feedback Challenge
Congratulations to [personal profile] phnx  who commented to 5 fics! Honorable mention to [personal profile] qem_chibati , who commented to 4 fics!
Theme Challenge
Congratulations to [personal profile] tuulentupa  for winning the Theme Challenge! Honorable mention goes to [personal profile] qem_chibati !
For this round, as promised, there will be some kind of graphic prize that Ver will figure out later, but probably a small banner. Winners should contact Ver through PM or email with the picture they would like used for their banner(s) attached (or at least an idea of which character is their favorite or something like that). Ver will get those out as soon as she can. Congrats!
ONCE AGAIN, a huge THANK YOU to all participants, whether through writing, reading, commenting, cheering, chatting... we appreciate you guys being patient with us through our first round, which certainly had a few glitches (*cough*possiblyevenwiththispost*cough*), but we managed to survive through it okay. We hope to be better next round! See you soon!

 Hey everyone, this is just a quick reminder to start sending in your guesses!

We aren't going to be able to put up the reveal at midnight, most likely, so the guessing deadline has been extended six hours to:

December 22nd, 5:59 am, EST.

After this date, your guesses won't count. The reveal is almost upon us! Happy reading!

**Please Note: Maintenance is being performed at the moment to fix the author problem. It appears to be fixed! If you find a problem, please notify us and we will fix it.**

We seldom take the time to celebrate our other Go prodigy, but happy birthday to Akira! This birthday we shall celebrate with a cute little mini-round of fic! This round we have 11 fics, from 9 authors.

Five Things About Winter - Hikago Edition

Please leave your guesses as comments to this post in the following format:

[ID] writer's LJ name

You don't need to guess for all the fics, only as many as you can figure out. You also don't need to leave all your guesses in one comment; you can comment with additional guesses. However, you can only guess one writer for each fic. In the case where you've changed your guess, the latest guess will be the one considered. You don't need to be a member of this community to guess!

All guesses will be screened to avoid unduly influencing other people with your opinions. You are free to post public speculations in your own LJ but please try to avoid doing so in blind_go itself or in individual posts in [personal profile] answer_key

Please see this link for clarification on guessing. Some tips on how to get started on the guessing process can be found here.

Happy hunting!!

Remember, you are encouraged to constructively comment to fics - anonymously, and with your author IDs. In fact, the authors are really hoping you will!!

Please comment to this screened post...

⇒ if your name appears or does not appear on the author's list in error.
⇒ if there are any mistakes in the links to the fics, or if there is a typo or other small correction in your fic that you would like changed.
⇒ with the names of people who are not allowed to guess for your fic (e.g. betas, friends whom you've discussed it with, people whom you've verified your ID for in facilitation of your own guessing post, etc.).
with your guesses!!

Enjoy, and thank you!!

Also, the chat room set up by hikarunogo is always open, often has at least one or two people there, and is a great resource for writers in need of a sounding board for ideas or frustration!

Good luck with your writing, everyone! :D

This is just a little reminder to everyone that the deadline for the mini round is in one week (minus about 10 hours). Wow, where did all that time go? Didn't we just post the initial round announcement?
As most of you start writing (haha), don't forget:

Hi bg-ers! Sorry this is a bit late (apparently Ver needs sleep or something, pfft), but we just wanted to let you know that the sign-up deadline for the mini-round has passed. Thanks to everyone who signed up! We love you guys! ID's will go out soonish. Hang tight, you'll get them, promise. :D

In the meantime, start writing! Or if you want to procrastinate some more there's always the support thread. Good luck, everyone!

Thinking about signing up? We hope so! Are you looking for some inspiration before you take the plunge? We just might be able to help you with that!

Mini-Round 5 Theme List )


The theme challenge is completely voluntary, intended for fun and stimulation.

For inclusion in the theme challenge, your submission must list each theme you used. Both the author that earns the most points for a single fic and the one who earns the most points overall win be eligible for a prize. However, the winner of the theme challenge will not necessarily be the person who uses the most themes, so please don't feel obliged to cram in as many themes as you can. Rather, we hope that you will take a theme or group of themes that you find interesting and use them to write a great story.


Rubric )


Remember, sign ups are on DW, and we're looking forward to you signing up! Alternatively, we're super psyched you did sign up! FIGHT-OH!

Hiya, Hikago fandom! It's your new mods, Ver and Aki here. You're probably surprised to see us so soon after the last round, but in honor of Touya Akira's birthday which mostly gets ignored, we have a surprise for you~ a mini-round! :D

Also, since this is our first time in our shiny new mod chairs, we'd like to say that we are incredibly honored and excited to be in this position. Please take care of us! *bows* Even though it's scary having to deal with new mods in a community, never fear- we don't plan on making a whole bunch of changes on you guys. We've both been around a long time and we love [community profile] blind_go the way that it is. We intend to keep things more or less the same, mostly just with more mini-rounds and stuff. We have IDEAS. So look forward to that. :P

That being said... Trixie and Pye, before they left, set up the beginnings of a move to DW, lovely people that they are. The one "change" that we are implementing is that we're finishing this process- [community profile] blind_go will now be primarily on DW, with posts showing up on LJ with links to the DW comm. Along that same vein, the support comm [community profile] kifu_archive has been copied to DW and all of the activities for that community will be completely on DW from here on out.

Anyway! Onto business!

Questions? Post them here, send a PM (Ver or Akichan), or email (Ver or Akichan)! Don't forget that [community profile] kifu_archive is around for flailing and support, and the support thread is already up, because Ver is awesome like that. :D

Thank you!! And happy ficcing!!!
