21st-May-2008 12:49 pm - Claims Post 2008!

And here it is! This year's Claims Post. Thank you to everyone who submitted a prompt - your mods are very happy to see so many interesting ideas! Just a reminder to please read the Rules for Claims first.

All requests have been arranged by alphabetical order. By clicking on the number of the request, you will be taken to the original comment from the requestor. To claim a request, simply comment with the number of the request you wish to claim, and state whether you are claiming for fic or art.

Claims will be awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Posting will begin July 21; please remember that all community posting will be moderated. We reserve the right to reject fics that do not meet a reasonable standard of quality or don't follow the rules.

However, if a fic you come up with does fall outside the timeframe rules--for example, if you tweak a story about the Grangers regaining their memories to take place primarily during DH - you may still email the mods a link, and we will add it to the masterlist at the end of the fest in a separate section.

Ready? Let the claiming begin!Collapse )
17th-May-2008 09:06 pm - Requests closed!
Thank you for submitting your requests! As May 16 is now over pretty much everywhere in the world (at least I think so - time differences make my head go fuzzy ...), the requests post is now closed.

Over the next couple of days, we'll be collating the prompts and putting them up for claiming, so look out for the claims post on May 21!

Love from your mods,
shiiki and msmoocow
12th-May-2008 02:25 pm - Five more days!
Just a modly reminder that the Requests Post is open for five more days - until May 16 (we're pretty flexible on timing, so we'll probably keep it open until the day ends all over the world).

If you haven't made a request yet, hurry over and do so! :)
2nd-May-2008 08:06 am - Requests Post 2008!
It's now May 2! The 10-year anniversary of the final battle, incidentally, and Victoire Weasley's 9th birthday. And as you can see, we have a shiny new layout! Requests for prompts are also now open!

You may comment to this post with your prompts until the closing day (May 16), and we will tally them and make a master list of prompts, which will be released for claiming on May 21.

Just to recap, the request format is:

(for example)

Requestor: shiiki
Prompt: Kingsley Shacklebolt offers Harry a position as an Auror.
Pairings (if any): Gen
Fic or Art: Fic
Rating: PG

All requests must follow this format, otherwise your mods will have a hard time, and we may miss out your request.

Also, please make sure you have read the Rules for Requests. :)

Let the requests begin!

If you're as excited about this year's round as we are, pleas help us promote the community. Take a banner or an icon, if you want. Wear a sandwich board and march down your street. Help spread the word!

Please save and link to your own image hosts if you can. :)
21st-Apr-2008 10:06 pm - Instructions for 2008 fest!
As promised, here are more details on this year's round of the Fic-a-Fest. It will run somewhat as it did last year, so those of you who were around then, welcome back!

For those who are new, welcome! This comm caters to anyone who wants to participate, be it in giving out plot bunnies in a request, writing those requests, offering beta assistance, or simply reading (and reviewing!) the fics that come out. You don't have to write a fic to request one; nor do you have to request one to write.

Instructions, in more detail ...Collapse )

A revision of the Rules Post for this year's theme can be found here. Please take some time to look over it!

*dusts off cobwebs*

It's been a while, hasn't it?

In honour of Fred & George's birthday, we've decided that it's time to revive this comm for another fic-a-fest.

With DH almost a year behind us now, have you wondered how the characters coped following their victory over Voldemort? How did those surviving deal with the aftermath of JKR's 'bloodbath'? Did they rebuild Hogwarts over the summer? Was it a difficult transition period for them?

This year, the fest theme is:

Deathly Hallows: One Year On

We hope to take a good look at what exactly happened, that year following the final battle.

Here is the planned schedule for this round of the fest:

Requests Open: May 2 - May 16
Claiming Open: May 21 - July 21
Posting: July 21
Deadline: September 1

Over April, we will be revising the instructions and rules for the fest, so watch the community for new announcements and more details about how to participate!

In the meantime, let's pimp the comm far and wide! Remember - the more people we get, the more fun we'll have this summer. :)

If you have any questions or feedback on how we can improve, don't hesitate to contact your mods, shiiki and msmoocow at hallowedmoments [@] gmail [dot] com! (Or just comment here.)

Love from your mods,
msmoocow and shiiki

sa: i hear your boobs
...is officially over!

Everything submitted before this post will be added to an official 2007 masterlist, which should be posted soon. And I approved the last few entries in an insane rush, so I will be going back and tagging them appropriately. Thank you to everybody who participated, pimped, and offered reviews to all of our lovely entries!

You may now archive and cross-post your works at will. If you claimed a prompt but have yet to finish, late fics and art will always be welcome. And if you see an unclaimed prompt in the claims tables that you'd like to write or draw for, you're more than welcome to do so now. Claim approval won't be necessary, though the entries will still be briefly moderated; simply pick the prompt that you want and submit when you're finished.

If there are any questions or concerns, or if you need clarification, comment on this post or email me at hallowedmoments@gmail.com or at msmoocow@livejournal.com. For the time being, I'd prefer that emails be sent to my own account rather than the community's, since my dear co-mod is out of the country being a pirate or something. No joke.

And psst--don't tell anyone, but we may do this again next year, depending on how much interest there will be. ;)

Keep watching the community for the masterlist, any future fic or art, and announcements about a another possible fic-a-fest.

Love you all!
