MINI-FEST needs your love!

art by [livejournal.com profile] dustmouth

Are you feeling the HOLIDAY spirit yet? December is upon us! And there are so many fests posting!

But it's not too late to join [livejournal.com profile] mini_fest!

If you didn't previously sign up, but you'd still like to be a part of the fest by helping out as a pinch hitter/fest filler, please let us know!

More information can be found at THIS POST about claiming - but you can just send the MODS an email at hpminifest@gmail.com. (Or let me know!) We need ALL THE HARRY POTTER love AND all the HARRY POTTER art!

You do not have to pick a prompt from the list, just create your own holiday fic/art featuring (any) Harry Potter pairing and (any) rating!

So last week I decided to give [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts365 a tumblr: [tumblr.com profile] hogwarts365 to maybe even get a little bit more attention. And someone on tumblr ALREADY wrote a little 365 word story and published it. It's so cool.

I thought maybe putting it on tumblr will give the comm a little bit more attention as [livejournal.com profile] enchanted_jae has been the only member ever to write for each prompt and post it within the deadline. (She rocks).

So if you have tumblr, feel free to follow us at [tumblr.com profile] hogwarts365! And COME AND PLAY WITH US!! I sometimes play with the prompts as part of a writer's block. I hope you guys will enjoy it. Although, I reckon trying to keep up with entries on tumblr for the weekly masterlist might become kind of a bitch.

Oh well.

Things you do for fun (and criticism) <3 <3

Have a great Sunday!

PS... [community profile] hogwarts365 hit 5 years this past september. I can't believe it. LOL.

We're on DW, LJ, and TUMBLR (Now).

[livejournal.com profile] hp_halloween | [community profile] hp_halloween is posting today! I was the first person to get my gift - yay - and make sure to watch the comm for ALL THE AWESOME 200 WORD DRABBLES. So much talent!

I wrote a 20K fic this month and published it. It has over 2000 hits on ao3 and 200 kudos. I feel very popular. The fic is ok, too.

I just submitted my first entry for [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost! I have 2 more gifts to tweak out and send them in!

I'm severely behind in my MERLIN fic writing & need to get back on that. I am thinking of doing a bunch of holiday fics for Merlin. IDK yet if they're gonna be part of a fest or a prompt based exchange fest from me to my friends.

I also signed up for the EARLY BIRD special for [tumblr.com profile] slythindor100! It's mad exciting! Let's see if I follow through. I don't have any travel plans for the x-mas holidays yet but things always change.

[tumblr.com profile] siriusblackfest starts posting on SATURDAY! It's gonna be so awesome and we have like ridiculous amounts of WOLFSTAR that I can't even. I hope you guys watch that comm - on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] sirius_black

That's all for now, folks! Enjoy your WEDNESDAY (and HALLOWEEN)

Event hosted by [livejournal.com profile] rarepair_shorts | [community profile] rarepair_shorts

Is it your birthday? No? That's okay b/c the summer wishlist is here to grant you fic / art wishes, anyway.

How the wishlist works. From now until May 30, make a wish for your fav. rare pairs (or gen) stories. Your wish will remain anonymous until May 31. Then your wishlist will be open to the public and whoever wants to make your day will write you a fic or do art for you.

No pressure. All genres. All ratings. Rare Pairs ONLY. More info on LIVEJOURNAL or DREAMWIDTH for you.

What's the best part? THERE'S NO OBLIGATION. You do not have to grant ANY wishes because this fest is about YOU. If you wanna be nice and do something for others, we'll love it, but just sit back and relax, and write about what you wanna read.

I'm not freaking out.

see: I'm freaking out

Date Title of Fest Status
11/6/2017 hd_erised Submitted
11/27/2017 Small Gifts - Remus/Sirius With Beta
12/5/2017 hoggywartyxmas First Draft is terrible
11/12/2017 hd_owlpost (3 gifts) er... 1 down 2 to go
12/18/2017 Rare Pair Shorts Winter Exchange What Even?

New Year’s Countdown is posting from Dec 1 to 31. Slythindor100 is from Dec 1 to 25 and DracoHarry100 gives you all the prompts up front and you can just write ONE STORY w/ all the prompts. Which I’ve totally done in the past. LOL.

Things in the back of my mind that I may or may not eventually do something for: winterknights (Merlin), and mini_fest (Harry Potter).

Also – this may or may not be happening – I have like no clue and I’m not asking the mod about it (lol): exchange fest for Camelot_Drabble.

Also, things all MODS need to do: 1. Post a link to your community in your email b/c it’s easier to click on a link than go looking and figuring out how to spell your comm name – esp when it’s not something easy like “small_gifts” 2. Always ALWAYS ALWAYS INCLUDE THE DUE DATE (esp if it’s a fest) in your email. ALWAYS. It’s awful having to go searching for the due date if you’re not someone who has a calendar handy. 3. Try to link the rules page (or the header page) in your email.

Anyway, as you were. | What are you guys working on?

Some Rare Pair Love (Masterlist!)

Every summer [livejournal.com profile] rarepair_shorts has the ‘Wishlist Event’ where people submit their wishes w/out any obligation to create or fulfill other people’s wishes. It’s one of my favourite fests and last year it was a huge success and this year, also, we had a tone of great entries. I always try to fulfill as many wishes as I can, but I always fail at not being able to do them all. This year, I was lucky enough to do 12 out of 20+ so that wasn’t so bad. If I wasn’t so busy w/ work and planning my trip in August, I would have done more! Well, there’s always next year. Below is my masterlist of the wishes I created. They were all fun an unique in their own way and I had such a great time!

Thanks for reading!

Due dates and ramblings...

I didn't bother tagging the comms -- but you guys know what's up.

UPDATE: 9.26.17
hd_familyfest - Sept 15
Merlin Canon - Sept 21
hd_fan_fair - Sep 30 (I think. I got an extension)
weasleyjumpers - October 5

Hd-owlpost (times 3) - November 12
hd_erised - Nov. 6

I signed up for hoggywartyxmas again this year.

I will prob. sign up for winterknights - not sure about merlin holidays - it's not really my cup of tea (are they even running?)

And will have to check w/ other mods about the rare pair exchange fest at rarepair_shorts.

Not sure if my CD Co-mod would wanna do an exchange fest again for camelot_drabble b/c I know she had a tough time last year with the participants to check in and that's a serious PIA, yo.

I see that there's a Harry/Draco big bang on the horizon but I'm not sure if I will actually do it b/c big bangs always intimidate me and I end up dropping out b/c I am just not into writing for the long haul...I guess? Maybe I just get scared. I write fluffy romance and no one needs to read tooth rotting fluff for 50k plus. Even though that's exactly what my original fic is about. HA.

Also, here's another "dig is on holiday pic" under the cut.
