About this Entry

[originally posted: 05/14/07 by odogoddess]

For a first exchange, we've had pretty good luck. Only two drop outs, with pinch-hitters in place and all systems go. Pinch-hitters are getting the gifts the drop outs would have gotten, so it's all good.

Soon I'll be posting our first fic. There will be a new fic posted every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, just in case anyone needs a reminder. In between days, you bottomsnape fans are expected to provide feedback. Remember, fanfic authors don't receive anything else for their efforts. So even if all you have to say is "Neat idea!" or "Hot!, it's appreciated.

That said - let's get the fanfic flowing!

About this Entry

[originally posted: 04/30/07 by odogoddess]

I don't know about our other entrants aside from those who have turned in their wonderful entries so far, but my own fic is not quite ready. :-/

I'm sure some of you are in the same boat. Moreover, the Exchange fics aren't going to start posting until May 14th. So... I'm extending the Fantasy Fest two more weeks so those of us whose muses are reluctant and/or have too much RL to deal with can work on them and post between now and then, and the rest can enjoy a few more new fics between now and when the Exchange posts begin.

That said, let's keep those keyboards smoking! :)

We have a small pool of writers, but that just means we start posting the fics later and can give you enthusiastic participants an extra week of writing/drawing time. :)

So the deadline for turning in assignments is now May 7th, and we'll start posting on May 14th, one new entry Monday through Friday, with weekends off to (hopefully) re-read and post reviews.

Writers, artists, start checking your inbox for your assignments this Friday!

About this Entry

[originally posted: 03/27/07 by odogoddess]

I'm extending the sign-ups for two more days! The smallest successful exchange I've seen take place was 12 writers/artists. Ideally, I'd like at least 20, but I won't hold my breath! :) Still, I'm hoping we nab a few more interested participants, because in an exchange - the more the merrier!

The sign up post is here.

About this Entry

[originally posted: 03/23/07 by odogoddess]

Yay! This is our first exchange and we hope it will go off as smoothly as Severus does when he's with his beloved partner. :)

To that end, we must have some ground rules and for those wanting to take part, here they are:

1. You must be 18 to participate. No exceptions.

2. All work should contain some form of bottomsnape, slash or het. Including masturbation, in keeping with National Masturbation Month, is encouraged, but not required.

3. If you sign up, you will be writing or drawing a gift for a person that will be assigned to you.

4. If you are writing, your story must be a minimum of 1,000 words. We would strongly advise that your story be beta-read or at the very least SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation And Grammar) proofed.

5. Please follow the recipient's request. While you do not have to include every single element they request, please try to honour the request to the best of your ability. These are the most important considerations:
- Is at least one of their pairings in your entry?
- Is at least one element they requested present?
- Have their squicks been avoided? The answer to all these should be YES.

6. If you, at any time, need to back out of the exchange, please let us know as soon as possible, either here or via email, so that we may get a pinch-hitter. NOTE: fics written for drop-outs will to the best of our ability be re-assigned to a pinch-hitter. Pinch-hitters, it's best to be flexible in terms of what you may receive.

7. Fics should be in text format or a Word doc with all Smart Quotes turned off and any special html coding (italics, bold, underline, center, etc) included. Work should be completed by April 22nd. We can work with you if there are time-constraints but let us know ASAP, because we start posting May 1st. If we do not hear from late-entrants by April 24th, we will assume you have been incapacitated and will re-assign accordingly. So, if you *think* a conflict may arise, let us know - often times a think-it-might becomes a OMG-it-did(!) and there is no time when it happens to let anyone know. So the watchwords are: keep us informed.

8. When your work is completed, please email it to bottomsnape AT yahoo DOT com with 'bottomsnape exchange entry' in the title. We will send confirmation of receipt within 24 hours, so if you do not get confirmation of receipt, then we did not receive it!

9. Please do not archive your work elsewhere until artists and authors have been revealed on the community in the form of a master list.

10. All fic or art must have the following header included:

FROM: (include this, but it will be deleted prior to posting)
DISCLAIMER: The world of HP and it's characters belongs to Rowling. The author of this fic has borrowed them for the purposes of storytelling. No profit was or will be made.

11. Het and slash alike will be allowed in this fest. If you do not write or wish to receive either slash or het, just indicate it on the sign-up form. We are expecting a small pool of entries and more writers than artists, so we cannot guarantee a choice between fic or art. We also suspect there will be more slash than het authors and artists, so please try and remain as flexible as possible on your sign up.

By signing up, you are indicating that you understand you must complete your recipient's request by April 22nd and if you are running late and do not contact [info]bottomsnape's moderators by April 24th, that your gift may be re-assigned.

How do you sign up? Use the template below.

Sign ups close on March 26th! Assignments start going out March 30th.

Correction: Sign-ups have been extended two more days. They now close on March 28th. No other dates have changed.

Remember, in re: your entries - if you're not sure of timeline or character details or how to spell something, the Harry Potter lexicon is very helpful.

If you have any questions not covered above, feel free to ask. You can email us, if you prefer, at: bottomsnape AT yahoo DOT com

Since we have RL's, too, please allow us at least a day to respond before assuming we are either ignoring you or did not see your question or email. Thanks!

That aside, please consider taking part and making Masturbation month one to remember. :)

ETA: Sign-ups are now closed! 12:08A, 29 March 2007.
Sep. 12th, 2007 @ 03:18 am Fantasy Fest Posting Now Open! Plus Exchange Information...
About this Entry

[originally posted: 03/17/07 by odogoddess]

Posting can begin anytime now for the March bottomsnape Fantasy Fest! :) Posts can keep coming in until the end of April. :)

May, of course, is National Masturbation Month. :) What better way to celebrate than to have our first bottomsnape exchange? To that end, sign-ups will begin March 23 and go on through March 26. Mark your calendars! Yes, you can absolutely sign up to be a pinch-hitter.

Assignments will go out by March 31st. The deadline for exchange fic/art will be April 22nd. Exchange entries must:
- for fic, be 1,000 words or more - there is no upper limit
- contain bottom!Snape
- try to the best of the writer or artist's ability to fulfill the recipient's request

Including masturbation, in keeping with National Masturbation Month, is encouraged, but not required. All entries can be considered as inspiring masturbation, after all!

Note: We are expecting a small pool of entries and more writers than artists, so we cannot guarantee a choice between fic or art. Aside from that, we hope you make plans to join us and above all - have fun! :)
Sep. 12th, 2007 @ 03:05 am March Fantasy-Fest - Prompts post
About this Entry

[originally posted: 03/01/07 by chazpure]

Yes, it's time for a fic fest, so to that end,
prompts are now being accepted for our various writers
and artists to peruse and pick.

The rules:

- fic must be between 500 to 5,000 words.
- must be posted starting St. Patrick's Day
- must have bottom!Snape, so some smut is required

other than that, the main thing is - have fun!

The prompts poll will be open until Monday, March 5,
when we will post the list for you to stake your claims.
Claims will be open through Friday, March 9, and entries
can start posting on March 17.

Please enter a prompt for the fest. This can include
pairings/moresomes, scenarios, kinks - anything that
will fit in the text-box.


We're also planning on an exchange to start posting in May,
in celebration of National Masturbation Month!
Sign-ups will be opened toward the end of March.
