✿ the moment of truth: REVEALS! + a friending meme! ✿

Hello, everyone! It's been a long run, promoting this exchange since early last year, and finally ending our very first round in the first month of the new year! We'd like to thank everyone for participating and making this exchange a great one, despite the numbers! We hope that everyone enjoyed it too, and that all the fic was thoroughly enjoyed.

This round, we've had 23 fics posted! [throws confetti] And we've had more than 60 000 words posted as well, so give yourselves a round of applause! We're super proud of you.

We'd also like to thank several people for pinch-hitting for us, especially bluedreaming, totsuka, and voldemochi for writing a fic each, and atharaigas who went above and beyond with two! We're so thankful to you guys for helping us out in our time of need, and helping this exchange go on. We shall build shrines to all of you. In our hearts. We might not have any cash for actual shrines.

And a word from each of us:

Mod C: Thanks to everybody who participated in thedaelight and all the lovely readers who helped make this a successful exchange! Another thank you to, of course, Mod T, who was able to guide me through thick and thin since it was my first time modding an exchange (Another additional thanks to Mod T's flu and lack of wifi (¬‿¬)). Special shout out to my eyeball grandma and my favorite person from WV for always listening to my enthusiasm about thedaelight!

Mod T: Couldn't have done this without all the writers, all the readers, and of course, Mod C, who typed like a drunk person half the time-- I mean, did most of the work-- I mean, was a slavedriver--I mean... I love you Mod C! Thanks for agreeing to do this with me all those months ago. We've had fun! And a big thanks to everyone who's encouraged us along the way, especially eyeball senpai and the ever faithful parent-pet hashtag group.

Title: safe up here with you
Recipient: ailiblue
Rating: G
Word Count: 2512 words
Summary: Baekhyun on the outside seems to be a really charming kid who is friends with everyone but late every night he confesses his unexplainable loneliness to the moon. Little does he know there is a boy on the moon always listening to him.
Warning/s: second person pov ._. accidental evangelion reference, too many italics

Notes: title and cut from the björk song ‘hyperballad’; the song that baekhyun sings is bob dylan’s ‘make you feel my love’. this turned out this way because … um. o(╥﹏╥)o i really fell in love with the premise of it but in my hands it became this strange, vague thing that is trying very hard to be romantic (シ_ _)シ many thanks to r for helping me out and keeping me cheerful about the outcome of this and w&a for keeping me on track, as usual ovo
