I can't find the results for "Favourite Work in Progress" or winners banners for Characters H-Z.

Thank you for posting this and running such a fun contest.
Oct. 14th, 2015 02:12 pm (UTC)
Somehow the winners in WIP got accidentally cut during the copy/paste process. Fixed now! Thank you for calling our attention to it.

You can find the rest of the character banners here: http://www.lotrgfic.com/viewpage.php?page=treeandflowers_2015_chara2

Probably you were thrown off by the fact that it's not listed "H-Z". The first list broke off at Gimli, and then the second one picked up with Glorfindel, and then after the alphabet ran through on individual characters, there were groups of characters which ended in The Sons of Feanor.

Thank you so much. I've just put my banners on my website. A big thank you to everyone.
