The Pondathon

Pondathon: The Quiet Pond's story-driven readathon. Image: Two swords with vines wrapped around it frame the words 'Pondathon', with three little forest sprites sitting on top. One forest sprite has a leaf on its head, the middle has twigs for horns, and the right has a mushroom on its head.

The Pondathon was a 6-week long story-driven readathon run by The Quiet Pond that took place during late January to early March. The readathon is now over. However, you can still read all of the stories from the readathon.
