Round 8 SIGN-UPS have arrived!  
Round 8 Sign-Ups for the final year of hd_holidays ARE OPEN!


SIGN-UPS ARE NOW CLOSED! The final list of participants will be posted on Tuesday, July 31st.


This is the official sign-up post. Sign-ups will run until July 29, 2011 at midnight EST (so ending Sunday night). Proxy sign-ups ARE allowed if you can't make that window, but as sign-ups are NOT first-come first-served, there's less urgency in signing up early. Assignments will be sent out by August 11th.



The Rules


1. Fanfic/fanart should be:


  • At least 1,500 words in length, beta-read/free of spelling and grammar issues. Artists have no minimum requirement, but should think of the "under 1,500 words" equivalent as something that is merely a sketch or done in MSPaint. In either case, you should put real effort into your gift!

  • It should also contain any and all HTML that you wish included (such as italics). We will NOT go back and edit these in for you; your fic will be posted as it is received.

  • Your fic cannot be part of a series, or a sequel to a fic.

  • It must be based on the prompt originally assigned to you. No switching prompts/recipients or having someone write fic for your art without consulting with the mods first.



2. Participant caps:

Authors - 90
Artists - unlimited

There will be two lotteries for the authors:

  • one for returning participants (no matter how many times they've done the fest before),

  • one for new people (who have never participated before).


Ideally we will end up with an equal amount of both returning and new authors, but depending on how imbalanced the sign-ups are, we reserve the right to alter the ratio accordingly (would only ever happen if we received less than 45 eligible returning member sign-ups, which we do not anticipate happening). Additionally, if the mods opt to participate, they will not be counted (i.e. won't be taking away slots from the max participant count).

And yes, artists are unlimited. We are greedy for art! As it utilizes virtually zero time for the mods, we will accept any artist into the fest provided they meet the submission guidelines as laid out above (i.e. stick figure art won't cut it). You also need to be an established artist! Please do not use this fest as your initial foray into the art world. We will be checking on those who we are unfamiliar with, so if there is no art or link to art in your LJ, we will be emailing you to ask for examples of your work (this helps us to pair you with someone we know will appreciate your unique style).

All submissions are due by OCTOBER 21st. That gives you TEN FULL WEEKS to complete your assignment. If you cannot meet this deadline, the mods must be informed as soon as you are aware of any conflict that would prohibit this! Which brings us to...


3. Extensions:


  • If you request an extension, you will be required to show us your work in progress. I don't care if it's scans of your notebook that you've handwritten the fic in - we need a show of good faith that you haven't been yanking our chain for a month only to turn around and drop out in mid December. This is not meant to sound harsh or mean, but we think it will be easier on the folks who are so convinced they will finish, stress themselves into a frenzy, only to bail last minute without so much as an opening paragraph...won't happen, because you will be dropped from the fest prior to that point.

  • Extension requests without an attachment will be ignored. The WIP rule will not be ignored this year as it was a handful of times last year, because we got burned. If you forget to attach it when you email us for an extension, we will reply one time asking for proof of progress, and if we do not receive it, your next notification will be that you've been dropped from the fest.

  • We reserve the right to say no, you cannot have an extension, based on the WIP received and the date that it is received. If you come to us for a second extension request on November 15th with only two paragraphs that are riddled with SPAG errors, you likely aren't going to get that second extension, and may be dropped from the fest.

  • It will be extremely rare for us to issue more than two extensions to a participant. This will be determined based on WIP received, circumstances, prior history, etc.

  • The mods assume the right to approve and deny extensions (and multiple extensions) as they see fit. Behavior from the past rounds of hd_hols will have a bearing on how lenient we are with your extension - if you strung us along last time, we are less likely to be generous. That said, we have never turned anyone down for a first extension request, or even a second one, but we are not afraid to boot someone who we suspect is stringing us along.


4. Anyone who dropped out of hd_hols round seven (winter 2011) is not eligible to participate depending on your circumstances last year. If you are not sure whether or not this includes you, please email any of the mods at hdhols-at-gmail-dot-com. Obviously if you got really sick, your kitty died, something like that - we aren't going to hold that against you and keep you out this year. EMAIL US IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS ABOUT YOUR ELIGIBILITY. Anyone who dropped out of round six (winter 2010), however, can have a second chance, but you will go into the new person lottery regardless of how many times you've participated in the past. Also, if you are known to be a frequent sign-up-and-bail, we may not allow you to participate. If you have any questions whatsoever regarding your eligibility, please contact us! We would rather you be certain than lose a possible participant.

5. Submissions should be emailed to hdhols at gmail.com. You can also contact taradiane or dysonrules directly with comments and questions, though we strongly prefer that you use the mod email as it helps us keep track of all communications with participants. This is extremely helpful if a mod has to go offline for a few days (or more), and that happens to be the mod you sent a PM to with an urgent question.



Please think very carefully before you sign up, and please only do so if you can make the commitment. This is the final year, and we've maxed out the participant cap in order to let in as many people as possible without overloading the mods. While we are here to have fun and spread joy, it is not a throwaway responsibility, either. The mods count on you as a participant to fulfill an obligation, and if you drop out, it does not only affect you and the person you were writing/drawing for. Remember, someone was writing/drawing for you, too.

Read the guide to being a good fest participant for starters. Especially you first timers! Think about your own writing abilities, how fast/slow you write and how good you are at meeting deadlines, because there is nothing more frustrating to a mod than the flaky and inconsistent. We do our best to cultivate a reputation for excellence, and count on all involved to make the fest as good as it can be.




Round 8 sign-up form

If you are a FIRST TIME participant, please put FIRST TIME in the subject line of your comment. This will help us sort through all sign-ups for the dual lottery, and to crunch the numbers. Artists, disregard this! ETA: If you do not see a subject line (depending on which style you're viewing this post in), then simply state it's your first time at the top of your sign-up.

Please fill in every required field, and please include some prompts that lend themselves to artistic interpretation in case your gifter ends up being artist. Give some visual scenarios/ideas. Prompts are welcome, but your gifter is under no obligation to write/draw that specific story! So please make sure to be as detailed as you can in your likes/dislikes (and squicks) portions of the sign-up...vague sign-ups are a double-edged sword, my friends. Your gifter is given free license to do whatever they want, but if you don't like it you've no one to blame but yourself. ;-)

Proxy sign-ups ARE allowed, so if you are going to be away during the sign-up period, you may ask a friend (or the mods) to sign up on your behalf.

You MUST put your age/make an age statement. No one under the age of 18 can write/draw and/or receive NC-17 work. Those under 18, however, CAN participate. Please help us stay on LJ by following this rule!

Please note that you should use the field regarding Era/Epilogue/Next Gen preferences to note whether you'd like epilogue compliant fic, fic set during DH canon, after the end of the war but before the epilogue, etc. Basically give your writer/artist guidelines for how they should take into account Deathly Hallows canon when creating your gift. You are also free to note here that you'd like a complete AU fic that disregards DH altogether.

Last, but not least, as with every other year we do expect to have fic outweigh art by a considerable number. We've altered the sign-ups slightly this year as a result. We ask that you try and be flexible in what you'd like to receive and please fill out both prompt sections regardless of your personal preference. We are no longer asking if you prefer fic or art. If your likes/dislikes/squicks run the same for fic and art (we know that is not always the case), then feel free to simply state as much in the relevant section, but prompts are ALWAYS encouraged (no need to be overly specific, a few keywords can do wonders for an incubating plot bunny!). We will, of course, do our best to pair you up with the perfect gifter based on your likes and dislikes, and if you've received art previously you likely won't get it this year.

You've trusted us year after year to pair you up with the best possible recipient and gifter, and we merely ask that you trust us again this one last time. I know that some of you feel strongly about whether you get fic or art, and if you feel that in prior years you've been overloaded with one versus the other, than by all means say so and we will do everything we can to give you what your heart desires - we want you to be happy, after all!

(SUBMITTING) Fiction or artwork? Fiction
If you have participated before, for whom did you write/draw?: Yep. soul_bound_8686 noeon and fantasyfruitbat

For the FIC you would like to RECEIVE
Kinks, genres or special requests: Happy endings. Flangst. Hurt/Comfort. Hand-holding. Kissing – lots and lots of kissing! Accidental snuggling/falling asleep together. I like them to be friends before it develops into something more, but plenty of banter/bickering is good! I enjoy fics with a large cast of characters – even if they aren't integral to the plot, I like to see the way their friends/family react to the relationship. I love UST, but it does need to be resolved eventually. Walks in the cold – wrapped up in hats and scarves and mittens (I have a bit of a thing for boys in mittens!) While I don't mind a bit of conflict, I'd like for the older Malfoys to be ultimately supportive of their son.

Squicks/Things you'd hate: Non-con, dub-con, chan, watersports, or any other hardcore kink. Long hair on men, unless we're talking Lucius. Tattoos/piercings, unless we're talking Charlie. Over use of pet names. Americanisms – not spellings, but I don’t want to read about proms or graduations! Character death of either Harry or Draco. Dark!fic. Mind fucks. Girly boys. Infidelity. Unhappy/ambiguous endings. Use of the word 'Gods'. Gender bending. Epithets – they've not names, so please use 'em

Common H/D Cliches you DO enjoy: I'm a big fan of clichés. I love an oblivious or in denial Ron – but conversely, I also enjoy it when he's the first one to figure out what's going on between H/D. Pansy is all kinds of win -- I love her as Draco's BFF, but also when she's the first one to befriend Harry. Reluctant hero!Harry. I prefer a supportive Ginny/Weasleys/Hermione – but initial reservations are fine. I love snark and banter and humour. I like when one or both of them are obvious to the other's feelings. Harry's chest monster. Possessive Draco, protective Harry, Snarky Draco, Healer!Harry. Post-war healing fics in general.

Common H/D Cliches you DO NOT enjoy: I'm generally not a fan of creature fics, apart from the odd Veela exception. Malfoys losing all their money/property in war reparations. Rentboy fics – either of them. Fuck buddies. Forced bonding – and I'm not a huge fan of accidental bonding either. H/D and AS/S in the same fic. Draco with a Dark Mark – DH doesn't say so explicitly, so I prefer to think not – like Voldemort didn't consider him worthy, or something. I should say the Dark Mark thing isn't a deal breaker for me, but if you must give him one, please don't make a big issue out of it.

Era/Epilogue/Next Gen preferences: I prefer fics to be DH compliant, but I'd rather forget all about that pesky epilogue!

For the ART you would like to RECEIVE
Kinks, genres or special requests: Same as above
Squicks/Things you'd hate: Same as above

cassie_black: Human Rightcassie_black12 on July 22nd, 2012 04:01 am (UTC)

Two or three prompts for your gift(optional):

1/ With the current Minister looking more corrupt/dodgy/useless by the day, Hermione badgers Harry into running against him for office. She assembles a campaign team of familiar faces, including the best PR man (or something like that) around – Draco Malfoy. I'm more interested in the behind the scenes of the race for office, rather than what happens if/when he wins. I may have been overdosing on the West Wing lately :)

2/ Post-War – Narcissa Malfoy is quick to call in her life debt, and seeks Harry's help in keeping Draco out of Azkaban. Feeling adrift, with no war to fight, Harry is glad to have a purpose at last – even if it does mean spending A LOT of time with Malfoy. But the more he learns about what happened during the war, the more Harry finds himself reluctantly admiring his erstwhile rival.

3/ Christmas at the Manor! Harry's first Christmas with the in-laws!! I'd like the Malfoys ultimately accepting, but a Lucius who hits the firewhisky when confronted with their public displays of affection would be awesome :)

Name of someone you trust (and can keep quiet) that the person creating your gift can contact with questions about your preferences (optional): nursedarry

For the gift you will be GIVING
Kinks/Things you will gladly write/draw: Anything not on my squick list
Kinks/Squicks/Things you REFUSE to write/draw: Non-con/Dub-con, chan, scat, watersports, D/s, Hard BDSM, Dark!fic, or character death in the cases of H/D. Also, I'd prefer not to write Hagrid, Luna, or the Weasley twins as a pair, where they would be major parts of the story – it's not a squick, I just don't write them very well!
Highest rating you will write/draw: NC-17
What you will/won't write/draw as far as Era/Epilogue/Next Gen is concerned: Willing to write any era.
Your writing/drawing strengths, or genre you feel most comfortable writing/drawing: I'm best with flangsty fics, with a side of fluff or humour. And honestly, though I'll happily write NC-17, I'm not the greatest smut writer, so it may be best not to give me someone wanting porn! And finally, I'd really rather not be assigned someone with a specific top/bottom request.

PS: I know it's not guaranteed, but if there is a choice, I'd really rather receive fic than art.

PROXY SIGN-UP
PROXY SIGN-UP!!

Name/LJ: melusinahp
Email: alilana (at) yahoo.co.uk
Age: way older than 18
(SUBMITTING) Fiction or artwork? fiction
If you have participated before, for whom did you write/draw?: Kabal42, Regasssa, Pink_Mint, Scarletladyy & Lettered

For the FIC you would like to RECEIVE
Kinks, genres or special requests: Very canon oriented characterisations that include both their strengths and weaknesses, psychological complexity and believability, angst, sexual tension, love/hate, fight!sex, uncontrollable sexual desire, reluctant desire, lots of canon references, realistic sex, emotions that are shown not told, plot. I love romance, but I prefer stories that aren't primarily about domesticity or relationship problems. I like stories that show respect and affection for canon.
Squicks/Things you'd hate: mpreg, fluff, epithets (the blond, the man, the Gryffindor), fanon characterisations, character bashing of any kind, Muggle objects or name brands included without good reason, dark!Harry, feminine!Draco, shorter!Draco, please don't set up an important sex scene and then fade to black part way through, Harry and Draco as generic men who might as well be OCs, first or second person, present tense.
Common H/D Cliches you DO enjoy: Saving People Thing!Harry, tortured!Draco, morally ambiguous!Draco, Draco who wants to be a better person than he actually is, Harry being motivated by love, impulsive and self-sacrificing, Draco trying to be colder and tougher than he really is, snarky dialogue. Harry with a dark sense of humour, Harry as an Auror if it's post war.
Common H/D Cliches you DO NOT enjoy: disability!fic, kid!fic, creature!fic, established relationship, gay stereotypes, ripped, muscled bodies (I like them lean and wiry), long!hair Draco (please make them both look like they do in the books), 'Harry has withdrawn from the wizarding world', 'Harry is estranged from Ron and Hermione', white washing characters who did nasty things in canon, such as Lucius or Pansy, fanon!Pansy, the Slytherins/purebloods are oppressed post-war.
Era/Epilogue/Next Gen preferences: I'd be thrilled with "8th year" fic, wartime AU or post war. EWE please.

For the ART you would like to RECEIVE
Kinks, genres or special requests: Same as above. I prefer art in which I can recognise that Harry is Harry and Draco is Draco with one glance. I'm not so into art involving a generic blond and a generic dark-haired man. I'm not into depictions of porn without characterisation.

Two or three prompts for your gift(optional):

I don't have any specific prompts, but The Cave and Little Lion Man by Mumford & Sons are my essential Harry/Draco songs. A fic that incorporates the emotion and lyrics (The Cave being from Harry's POV regarding Draco and Little Lion Man being Draco's POV regarding Harry) from those two songs would be awesome.

If you aren't inspired by that idea, that's completely fine, though.

Name of someone you trust (and can keep quiet) that the person creating your gift can contact with questions about your preferences (optional): faithwood

For the gift you will be GIVING
Kinks/Things you will gladly write/draw: Anything mentioned above. angst, flangst, comedy with and edge, I'll write darkfic if it's thoughtful and doesn't just revolve around abuse/non-con/torture.
Kinks/Squicks/Things you REFUSE to write/draw: see above
Highest rating you will write/draw: NC-17
What you will/won't write/draw as far as Era/Epilogue/Next Gen is concerned: I'd rather write EWE with the boys under 35.

If you have participated before, for whom did you write/draw?: (if it was under a different username, please also list that here) N/A

For the FIC you would like to RECEIVE
Kinks, genres or special requests: I love a pining/jealous Harry! I love those missed opportunity moments more than anything! When Harry messes up and loses whatever opportunity he had with Draco, my heart sings - whether that's a betrayal (believing the worst in him) or simply missing the signs of attraction until Draco has chosen to let it go or anything in between, it doesn't matter. The worse Harry messes up, the better. I like infidelity and break-ups and Harry having serious issues coming to terms with having feelings for Draco or his sexuality. I'm an angst girl and I'll take it over fluff any day. I don't need a happy ending, though I'm not against one, I only need a great plot though!
Squicks/Things you'd hate: Scat, Harry paired with anyone other than Draco or Ginny - not even as a mention, bondage, spanking, dom/sub, using a character's role - top/bottom - to inform personality traits, feminized men (this includes men in women's clothing, men being referred to as 'wives' or 'mothers', a canonically male character turning into a woman or simply being stated as having a different gender than in canon), androgyny, character bashing, weak characters, time warp relationships (from 'I love you' to 'I hate you' in an unrealistic span of time), Harry and Draco already in an established relationship, PWPs, crossovers, I'm not a fan of petnames or second person PoV. I don't mind character death provided it isn't overwrought, melodramatic or lazy. Mpreg is great(!) but, if you write this, leave me out of the delivery room please
Common H/D Cliches you DO enjoy: Rent!boy Draco, Memory Loss, Aurors, Love Potion, Time travel, Body Swap, What-Did-I-Do-Last-Night-itis
Common H/D Cliches you DO NOT enjoy: Parselsmut, De-Aging, Any Creature Junk, Permanent Impairments (Blindness, Deafness, Crippling of any kind),
Era/Epilogue/Next Gen preferences: I'm okay with everything! But Post-Hogwarts fic, whether EWE or Epilogue-compliant (I loves the impediment of already married boys and I'm fifty/fifty on the kids) are almost always win!

For the ART you would like to RECEIVE

Era/Epilogue/Next Gen preferences:

One half-assed prompt (only if you want it): I've wanted to read a situation in which Draco is on the Horcrux hunt with Harry, Ron and Hermione for forever now! I don't care how that situation comes about, just have him be traveling in the tent, in the Forest of Dean, etc. with them. Sneaking away while gathering firewood so Harry can find him and confusedly maul him (he doesn't think he's gay yet. He's waiting to start his life with Ginny, isn't he?) would be AMAZING!

Kinks, genres or special requests: I enjoy either a lot of humor or a lot of angst. I have a HUGE thing for rimming, dirty talk, and passionate smut. I like plot and unusual plot twists. If you choose to go the angsty route, I would love some super emotional moments - trashing a room, an epiphany of sorts, etc.
Squicks/Things you'd hate: present tense (for this gift at least), mpreg, creature!fic, super feminine men, character death/suicide, incest, the usual squicky bodily fluids, object insertion. Pretty much stay away from any hardcore kinks and I'll be good.
Common H/D Cliches you DO enjoy: forced-to-be/work-together, 8th year romance, drunk!Harry/Draco, love triangles (without any smut via the third person, maybe just someone interested and is giving Harry or Draco a run for their money), super snarky Snape (I'd like you to bring him back somehow!).
Common H/D Cliches you DO NOT enjoy: mpreg, creature!fic, non-con (for this gift at least!), bonding, time travel.

Two or three prompts for your gift(optional):
1) Harry and Draco are assigned some sort of whole-year project (in potions, muggle studies, charms etc) and have some trouble getting their work done...first because they hate each other...but then...other things distract them. :P
2) Derived from a prompt I submitted for hd_fan_fair: Draco is auditioning for a play/musical and gets the leading role. Unfortunately, Harry has some sort of job where he is around Draco A LOT (security? stylist?) and it's driving Draco crazy. I would love it if the story is based loosely off the play they are performing.
3) Looking back on the failed relationship; telling the WHOLE story, not the one HE gave to the papers.

Highest rating you will write/draw: NC-17
What you will/won't write/draw as far as Era/Epilogue/Next Gen is concerned: Doesn't matter to me. I'm looking to explore new territories. I doubt I would be very good with war time though. So anything but canon 7th year/ridding of Voldemort.
Your writing/drawing strengths, or genre you feel most comfortable writing/drawing: I've been told that I do a great characterization of Harry and strong dialogue. I do present tense fairly well (though it isn't usually my first choice). While I am American, I don't have much trouble with Britpicking. I enjoy writing romance, humor, angst, flangst, and I am comfortable with an unhappy ending.

For the FIC you would like to RECEIVE
Kinks, genres or special requests: Straight up: I'll read any fic; however, I have a huge preference for fic that has an interesting and unique premise and stellar writing, amazing characterizations, and sex that is hot hot hot! Well done humor is also great. I love fic where Harry and Draco have to solve a complex, interesting problem and fall for each other along the way. If you can find a truly new and unique approach to Auror fic, I totally love Harry as an Auror, all bad-ass! Same with healer fic -- new premises are good. Based on this info from J.K. Rowling (Pottermore), and this info, the idea of Draco being obsessed with high end Muggle items, despite himself, greatly amuses me (and Harry). I like Draco sneaking an occasional cigarette and both the boys drinking the rare mind-altering potion, or alcohol casually. Please, no addiction!fic. That said, drunken lust is good! Parties and/or fancy soirées are fine, but I don't like clubs, gay or straight, as a setting. I love it when Pansy is Draco's best friend (not just a fag hag -- I'm talking a genuine friend). As a side note, infidelity or divorce is fine with me, as long as Ginny and Astoria are treated respectfully.

If forced to make a choice, I'd definitely go with post-Hogwarts fic.

I'm an obsessive Dracophile, so Draco's POV is always welcome. I love it when other characters are included as part of the story (Pansy, Ron, Hermione, Neville, Luna, Theodore, Blaise, Ginny, Astoria, etc.)

I love UST, boy!kissing, frottage (clothed or nekkid), oral sex, touching under clothing, accidental/unintentional orgasm, almost-getting-caught in flagrante, top!Draco, inconvenient but irresistible encounters, accidental voyeurism, masturbation (mutual, solo, or voyeuristic), subtle dub-con; Harry doing something sexual on/with Draco's Dark Mark (YES!); unredeemed!Draco; realistic sex.

Squicks/Things you'd hate: BDSM; spanking; anal sex; rimming; bloodplay; scat; vomit; humiliation; OOCness; MPREG; creature!fic; rentboy fic; Harry and Draco falling in love easily with no problems, tension or hurdles; Ron or Hermione bashing; Slytherin bashing; slutty Slytherins; Draco hating his Slytherin friends and house; Harry hating his Gryffindor friends and house; no tension, no working out the canon issues that have gone unresolved between Harry and Draco for years; Pansy bashing; Ginny bashing; Astoria bashing; the boys as sniveling, crying, effeminate "girly" men who are overly emotional. I don't like seeing men cry and I certainly don't want to read it, so if either of the boys sheds a tear or two, there had better be a very good reason why!

Common H/D Clichés you DO enjoy: I can't think of any that I haven't already addressed. I'm a fan of fresh, unique plot. However, if you're overwhelmed by a plot bunny that might be considered a cliché, by all means write it! This is a gift fest and I would love and be incredibly grateful for any fic I might receive :)

Common H/D Clichés you DO NOT enjoy: Epithets: "The grey-eyed Slytherin"; "They emerald-orbed Gryffindor"; "The blond"; "The raven-haired Auror"; "It was the first time they used each others' first names" (Harry quite clearly calls Draco "Draco" in canon); Twoo Wub; Harry openly/secretly hating Ginny and Draco openly/secretly hating Pansy and/or Astoria; Draco unhappily betrothed to Pansy and/or Astoria.

Era/Epilogue/Next Gen preferences: Totally flexible. Do what you'd like with it. Epilogue-compliant or EWE are equally fine.

For the ART you would like to RECEIVE
Kinks, genres or special requests: Oh, I love receiving art! SEE ABOVE -- I love gothic themes. Spooky or haunted settings are great, with lots of black, grays, dark purple, and blood red. No need for coffins, bats, ahnks, or bad hair. Tattoos are hot. Gaslight/Victorian/Edwardian is awesome, but I asked for and received these themes a couple of times last year, so don't feel obligated to this theme. Draco's Dark Mark is HOT HOT HOT. I will never ever ever not have a Dark Mark kink ^_^ Law enforcement themes are fabulous. The one exception to bondage I do enjoy is handcuffs or magical restraints used for the purpose of arresting someone, rather than as a sexual kink.
Squicks/Things you'd hate: NC-17 art; I prefer art to be in the G to PG-13 range. Examples of what I consider to be PG-13: Kissing is fine. Being skin to skin is fine from the waist up (especially if there are tattoos). Touching over the clothes is fine. One boy yanking the other's head back by the hair is VERY VERY GOOD! I like sexy, suggestive, and provocative scenes, but not overtly sexually graphic material, if that makes sense.

For the gift you will be GIVING
Kinks/Things you will gladly write/draw: I'm flexible. I'm always up for a challenge and I don't want to list tons of things I won't write because, again, this is a gift fest. That I absolutely love writing Harry and Draco is a given; I'm a Draco-centric writer and I find it far more difficult to get into Harry's headspace than Draco's, but I can do Harry's POV. I love writing Pansy, Astoria, Ginny, Scorpius, Albus-Severus, Ron, Hermione, Dumbledore, Snape, the Slytherins, Filch, McGonagall, ALL THE THINGS! Love it! I also love doing OCs. I will do my best with any plot request or scenario I might receive.
Kinks/Squicks/Things you REFUSE to write/draw: BDSM; spanking; scat; vomit; incest; child sexual abuse; Hermione/Ron/Ginny/Pansy/Astoria bashing; stupid Slytherins; evil Gryffindors; excessive fluff; creature fic; rentboy fic; MPREG.
Highest rating you will write/draw: NC-17
What you will/won't write/draw as far as Era/Epilogue/Next Gen is concerned: I'm totally flexible. I can do either epilogue-compliant or EWE.
Your writing/drawing strengths, or genre you feel most comfortable writing/drawing: I'm probably known in fandom as a dark writer; however, I'd like to think I don't write anything gratuitously or for the sake of random angst. I tend to do well with darker writing that contains character studies or psychological drama. I really like to get inside the head of the character I'm writing and examine his/her motivations and thoughts and feelings. I'm not a one trick pony, though! I do all right with angst and dark fic, yes, but I also enjoy writing humor fic, canon-compliant fic, plot, dialogue-heavy fic, and long fic. I'm a total canon whore, so I try and base characterizations from what we see in the books, and stories within the spirit of canon. If you're looking for fluff, twoo wub, puppies and kittens, Veela!Draco/Veela!Harry, purple prose, and gratuitous declarations of love, I'm not the author for you. I don't do fluff particularly well, nor do I enjoy writing grossly OOC fic. I can do either sad/ambiguous endings or happy ones. I'm willing to write some of what I don't necessarily want to receive. I like to write a thoughtful fic with (hopefully) a good plot. I like rare background or side pairings.

Good writing is my MOST. With good redaction! I am not that bitchy with grammar, since English is not my first language I may not notice a lot of mistakes but, redaction is a MUST.

sad to see this will be the last one. This fest was pretty much the only thing tying me to the fandom nowadays. Oh well, go out with a bang rather than a fizzle, right?

If you have participated before, for whom did you write/draw?: silyara, dirty_darella, mizbean

For the FIC you would like to RECEIVE
Kinks, genres or special requests: Hogwarts setting, during the war or directly after the war. Humour, angst, the works. 'First time' sex, with all the awkwardness and hilarity that it entails (doesn't have to be h/d). Rash decisions, adolescent impulsiveness, and the occasional moment of maturity. Basically a coming-of-age story. :) Did I mention that I love a bit of angst here and there?
Squicks/Things you'd hate: everyone being gay, scat/watersports, mpreg, character bashing
Common H/D Cliches you DO enjoy: characters with mostly 'canon' personalities, house wars or house rivalry, Snape cameos, resolution of issues through the magic of alcohol, qudditch, eavesdropping
Common H/D Cliches you DO NOT enjoy: characters with 'fanon' personalities aka a Cold/controlling Harry or a meek/submissive Draco. I mean, certainly Harry has his moments of insensitivity, and Draco his moments of vulnerability, but those shouldn't be their defining characteristics. Other cliches include Veela magic, Draco befriending Harry's friends (ron/hermione/etc)
Era/Epilogue/Next Gen preferences: Hogwarts Era, or directly after the war
