Summer Fling Challenge [May. 31st, 2004|01:24 pm]

[mood |productive]
[music |Blof/Counting Crow - Holiday in Spain]

This challenge's going to be a little different from the previous ones. I'm in the middle of exams for the next few weeks and I don't really have time to participate in fandom stuff, so here's a summer challenge (which will hopefully give me more time):

Choose one of these characters:
1. Harry Potter - the absence of his fame (but this doesn't necessarily mean an AU, maybe he is in a muggle place or somewhere nobody recognizes him, maybe he's in disguise)
2. Draco Malfoy - the absence of his entourage (who is the *real* Draco Malfoy?)
3. Severus Snape - the absence of potions and dungeons
4. Hermione Granger - the absence of books
5. Sirius Black - pre-Veil/AU: no animagus transformation / post-Veil/AU: absence of his memories pre-veil

and pair them with one of these:

1. Bill Weasley
2. Remus Lupin
3. Blaise Zabini (m/f)
4. Charlie Weasley
5. Lucius Malfoy
6. Vernon Dursley
7. Nymphadora Tonks
8. Lisa Turpin
9. Angelina Johnson
10. Oliver Wood
11. Luna Lovegood
12. Neville Longbottom
13. Ginny Weasley
14. James Potter
15. Fred/George Weasley

The overall challenge is that the story/art has to be in the summer holidays (or at least be a big part of the story, so the end might be after the holidays).

I'll be posting a new challenge on August 31st. Hopefully I'll have time to finish the exams and write a story for this one. I have lots of ideas, but I'm so short on time :(.
Good luck everybody, and I hope this generates more than the Ron challenge did -_-'.

Hey ya! [Apr. 30th, 2004|11:08 am]

[mood |anxiousanxious]
[music |Justin Timberlake - Rock your body]

Okay, I've been feeling a little disheartened about this community. I'm not that much of a writer and I thought by making this community we could encourage each other to write more and improve our skills. But my RL's been very busy lately and this just isn't one of my priorities anymore. Of course this doesn't mean I'll be abandoning this community completely, after all we've generated great fics IMHO. So I thought I'd change the rules just a little bit more =\. I hope y'all won't be too exasperated with me, I'm figuring things out as we go along.

So the new rules:
Instead of closing a challenge after three weeks, I'll just start a new one. This means that I'll be posting a new challenge every three weeks, but you can also choose a previous challenge instead of the new one. There will be no 'due date' and obviously you don't have to participate in every challenge (although, that wasn't a requirement at first either).

I think this way, you'll be able to choose more freely and there won't be a pressure to hurry up.

I'll be posting the old challenges in the memories section as well, so you can check them out more easily.

If there are any objections to these new rules just let me know.

Shades of Grey - Draco/Padma [Mar. 23rd, 2004|03:00 am]

[mood |sleepysleepy]
[music |Wayne Wonder - No letting go]

Title: Shades of Grey
Author: Jean
Pairing: Draco Malfoy/ Padma Patil, Draco/other male
Rating: PG-13 (probably PG)
Warning(s): Het! Het I tell ya. Other than that, just a pinch of slash, blink and you’ll miss it.
Summary: In a large castle, filled with all sorts of creatures, a strange alliance is formed.
A/N:  I don’t own Harry Potter or any of its characters I play with in this story. I sadly don’t make money out of this, but I do take bribes. This is written for the Potter’s Pairs challenge, which consisted of an unusual pairing and the subject of Hogwarts' ghosts. Spoilers are up to book 5 (to be sure). Last but definitely not least, a thousand thanks to Dedra and Merlin for the beta.

Shades of GreyCollapse )

Update [Mar. 23rd, 2004|01:16 am]

[mood |indescribable]

Okay, this will be the last week of the first challenge, so please do your best to finish and post it asap (I can say that because mine is now at the betas LOL). As most votes were for three weeks that's what the new time-limit will be (I'll be adding it to the userinfo as soon as I finish posting this). Let's do our best to keep to that limit next challenge!

I also want to applaud scribewraith for actually posting her fic on time. Go read and review her fic, because it's hot!

I'll also be putting in the userinfo that the fic can be posted anywhere after the challenge is over, I don't think I mentioned that. Just don't forget to put potter's pairs in your ANs or something. A little pimp gets us more members (and more yummy fics!).

The second challenge will start on the 29th. I'll be posting the subject and pairings before Wednesday, that'll give everybody plenty of time to pick a pairing.

Change of time limit? [Mar. 14th, 2004|12:48 am]

[mood |amusedamused]
[music |Norah Jones - Sunrise]

It's Sunday and obviously two weeks is too short, even for me :D. So should I change the limit to three weeks or four? I'm personally voting for four, but the most votes get the limit.
So vote now :D!
