Hello, Gradence fandom! For those of you who don’t know there has been a challenge going on for the month of June. Several writers in the fandom have created new works and posting it anonymously to a collection on ao3. The game is this, read the anon works and try to see if you can guess who it is through the writing style. Anyone outside the challenge is welcome to leave comments on the fics and see if they can figure out who wrote what. The creators will be revealed in August and you can see if you got it right. Below are the fics that have already been submitted up through 6/26.
