This fest is so, so, so much fun. The prompts are spectacular, there's so much room to play with genre and style, and last year's fest was just incredible in the quality and diversity of fics. And did I mention, the prompts are spectacular? Go look! Go claim! It's gonna be amazing!

Very excited to say that I'm signed up for the new HP Concrit Fest!

As the name suggests, the fest is designed for giving and getting feedback on the strengths and weakness of your writing. What the name alone doesn't tell you is how thoughtfully the fest has been designed. Entries will be closed to community members, so no one outside of the community will see your comments unless you choose to make them public at the end of the fest. Written submissions will be between 2k and 7k to keep the commenting commitment manageable (and to avert the temptation to turn everything into a 30k mini-epic *cough*me*cough*) and the deadline is almost a whole three months away. Participants agree to comment on half the entries and will give at least one point of positive and one point of constructive criticism and flaming is strictly forbidden, so feedback should really give a sense for both what could be improved and what's already strong. And, with more and more people joining in - they're up to 19 participants already - it looks like it will be a really well-rounded group.

The kicker for me was that I haven't seen and can't remember hearing about something like this before. That could be a product of relative newness, but whether or not that's the case it seems like a not-to-be-missed opportunity to work at getting better with a community of people who want to do the same and who share the underlying love of fandom and fanworks.

So! Check it out! And consider joining in. My (possibly ridiculously kinkysmuttywrong) entry is already underway and I very much want to share the excitement!

A Harry Potter Fest for Constructive Criticism

Every time I check the internet there's something new and exciting to squee about!!

[livejournal.com profile] this_bloody_cat wrote me a wonderful ficlet!! *flails* Not Quite Entirely Unlike Tea - Figuratively speaking, Draco wins all the tricks.

This story is so charming! Draco and Harry are off to tea and bridge at Malfoy Manor, which is not Harry's all-time favorite activity. Draco, scheming Slytherin that he is, decides to spice things up with a bit of under-the-table action. Harry, being the dignified adult that he is, obviously manages to keep his composure entirely. Entirely. Lucius and Narcissa are wonderful, Draco is fantastically deviantous, and Harry is a flustered, charming bucket of wonderful. Do check it out, either on LJ or on AO3!

AND THEN! Two of my prompts posted to Smoochfest!!

The first is a lovely piece of art based on Casablanca: As Time Goes By - “Not an easy day to forget...I remember every detail. The Germans wore gray, you wore blue.”
Then, a darling fic based on The American President: The Minister - Harry meets Draco again years after the war ended. Harry is now Minister and Draco is a lobbyist. Harry decides to pursue a relationship with him, but his very public life interferes.

I was so excited to see both of these prompts claimed!! Both movies screamed H/D to me and I loved what these creators did with them.

Speaking of prompts, claiming is open through June 30th at this year's career fair!

Claiming at this year's [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair starts on June 17th!

I've claimed a prompt and cannot wait to get started. AND I've had a prompt claimed for art! Mystery artist, if you're out there, I'm so, so psyched to see what you do with it!! Very much part of the crowd that will have trouble waiting for posting to start!

But in the meantime, I'm also chomping at the bit to get cracking on HP Silencio!


There's a prompt I want so badly. It's already half written in my head, and since submissions have to be under 5k, I figure it's totally compatible with other fest commitments. There are two days of prompting left, and claiming starts on Saturday!

tl;dr: I love fandom!!! And am kind of beyond myself with excitement!
