This is going to be a surprise. ;) It's something everyone will be able to do on the spur of the moment, though; no advance planning needed.March 6 - March 9: Memorable Messages
Daily Deviant has lived a long time in HP fandom, through a lot of pinnacle events and changes. Some of us have been along for the ride since the early days while others came in somewhere in the middle. Our fandom experiences are all different as are our experiences with this comm.
We invite everyone to write messages describing how Daily Deviant has affected your fandom experience. These messages can be as short as a couple of sentences or as long as an essay. Have memorable moments or funny stories to share? Discovered a new favorite kink you didn't know existed? Just want to say thanks for all the porn? Let us know!Members:

Each day from March 14 through March 18 we'll post a prompt (a kink or theme and a prompt word or phrase) and have a porny drabble/drawble free-for-all. Exercise your spontaneous smut muscles! ...And write/draw some drabbles/drawbles too. ;)March 19 - March 29: Fic and Art by Members and Watchers
There are three options for pieces posted in this period.1.
You can create pieces based on or inspired by any previous piece posted to Daily Deviant over the years. These could be fic based on art, art based on fic, prequels, sequels, remixes... Whatever you can dream up! If you're writing remixes of any sort, do your best to check with the author of the original piece to make sure they're okay with their work being included. (We know some people are long out of fandom and virtually impossible to contact; just do what you can.)Members:
Let us know by March 1 if you'll be creating a piece for this challenge. Once we see roughly how many to expect, we'll decide on posting schedule arrangements.Watchers:
