UPDATE: A Holly-er, Jollier Watty Season!

1.3K 91 12

                  You guys.  What the heck.  We've somehow managed to scrape up a Watty Award?  I know, I don't know how either, but thank you.  This is something I never thought I'd ever achieve on Wattpad no matter how long I've been here, so wow.

                  Like, when I first moved here from Quizilla (I say that as if I live on Wattpad...oh wait, I do), the authors winning Watty Awards were the people I followed here from Quizilla.  People with hundreds of thousands of followers and extraordinarily popular stories.  I loved those authors and I loved those stories, but did I ever think I'd win the same kinds of awards they would?  Uh, no.

                  And now here we are, with a Larry Christmas story of all things.  I hope you guys are proud, because I know I am.  

                  To celebrate, expect an UPDATE this weekend.  Yeah, I said it.  

                  But also, I've been going through my files and deciding what to back up since I've recently been told news that my hard drive is a hot second away from crashing, and that means that I've found some Elf Bites book covers that a few of you have made.  I think I once promised to include them at the start of certain chapters, but then I got into this theme of putting cute gifs instead, so they never got shared!  Boo, me.  

                  Fear not, I'll share them now.  But unfortunately I don't have any idea who's made these covers anymore, so if you remember making one of the ones that don't have credits, feel free to let me know so that I can recognize you!  

                  We'll start with the first cover that Elf Bites ever had...

                  I love this one, but unfortunately I wanted to use the template for a different cover (that you've not seen yet, muah ha ha), so I created this new one to match the cover theme I had going!

                  Moving on...

                  Here is one of the first submissions I remember receiving, but God knows I didn't keep track of who sent it to me

                  Then there was also this one...

                  This was the first cover I made after I decided to scrap the first one but before I went with the theme of the rest of my covers

                  This was the first cover I made after I decided to scrap the first one but before I went with the theme of the rest of my covers.  I like certain bits of this one, but there's just too much going on!  Also I wanted Louis in it. 

                  Then we have this one...

                  HOW CUTE.  I love that it nails Harry and Louis on the head and includes both settings.  If you made this one, please let me know!

                  There was also this one...

                  High key love the font for my username

                  High key love the font for my username.  Again, didn't keep track of who sent me this, so if it was you, let me know!

                  Which leads us to the one that I have now...

                  Thank you all again for everything you do for me.  I know that I'm a mess when it comes to updating lately, but I have pages upon pages in all my notebooks full of plans for this story.  It's so much fun to write, and I hope it's equally fun to for you to read.

                  But yeah, wow.  We've gotten a Watty Award.  Still crazy, still haven't wrapped my head around it.  Thank you. x
