Potent Serpent: Deathly Hallows Challenge!  
A fond hello to all Harry/Blaise fans!

Following the results of mara_202's poll, we've finally decided on the details of the next community challenge. We're a little concerned about how dead the community has been, so we would really love it if you could participate - each and every one of you count in bringing the community back to life! Book 7 and Movie 5 are coming out, so we should all technically be more enthusiastic about HP than this!

We especially encourage all of you members of this community who have not yet posted anything, or have not posted anything for a long time, to contribute by participating in this challenge! :)


Challenge: What would you love to see in Deathly Hallows?

- Your submission must involve Harry/Boy!Blaise.
- You may make as many submissions as you like.
- You may submit anything in response to the challenge - essays, drabbles, ficlets, one-shots, chaptered fics, poems, art, icons, comics... be creative!

Please remember:
- Include a rating with all submissions.
- Rather obviously, try to put all work behind an LJ-cut (previews, e.g. teasers for art/icons, are an exception).
- All warnings (i.e. for graphic smut or violence, nudity, character death, and so on) should be clearly outlined.

The deadline is JULY THE 5TH, 2007.

Please participate and help bring our community back to life :)

Sail on, Potent Serpent!

I will try to participate, I swear! It's just that I've been so uber-hectic with RL these days, and I will be working full-time this summer, so ... I'll try to find time! I'll try to write at least one short story. *nodnod*

Heh, you have a month and a few days :D That's plenty of time!

Can't wait to see what you come up wiiiith ^______^

Okay, question: Does this have to be strictly Harry/Blaise? Because I was bit by a plot bunny, and Draco keeps rearing his nasty head, and I really don't want to write him out because it's a majorly important art of the plot ...

Well, since this is a PS challenge, it should technically revolve around Harry and Blaise, but we don't want to make too many limitations (otherwise people won't submit stuff) - so as long as Harry and Blaise are the central characters, you don't strictly have to slashify them, I suppose. xD And yeah, you can add Draco to the list of central characters too, if he keeps rearing his head. :D

Oh, it'll definitely be slashy with Harry/Blaise, but Draco's going to complicate things. But I'm really glad it doesn't have to be only Harry/Blaise, because there will be some Blaise/Draco action going on too, and I think I'm really going to enjoy writing this! It'll be great fun!

Thanks for doing the challenge! I needed someone to kick me back into the fandom ...

Yay! Awesome. :D

I caught a few plotbunnies, but I'm not sure if I can use them for this challenge... Hmmm... *ponders* Strangely enough, they all involve Mrs Zabini. *face palm*

...oh, wait. What I'd love to see in DH doesn't necessarily have to be a serious fic, does it? I think I just caught an insanely cracky plotbunny. ^^

Yay, that's the spirit!

Go crazy :D Can't wait to read your fic!

Hey! It's ILikeSocks from FA! Thought I'd check it out... And since I haven't even read book 6, I'm not sure how well I'll do with this challenge, but I'll try. And I have two other H/B fics in the making! Woot!
Silver Harmony: Sunshinesilverharmony on June 5th, 2007 01:56 am (UTC)
Wow, that's really great. When you've finished those H/B fics of yours, be sure to post them here so that the community can see them! :)

The deadline for the challenge is in a month, so you'll have plenty of time to read Book 6 and get inspiration. And remember, you don't have to do anything big and complicated if you don't want to - even small things like icons, poems or drabbles would be great!
