If you want to get in on our Year-Long Challenge honoring a decade of Snape/Lupin
, time is growing short because you have to make your first post to the community by the end of the month (tag is project: A Decade of SSRL
In summary, for every person who completes the challenge with 12 posts, one each month, from now until the end of October, 2011, I will make a donation to the charity of her or his choice (within reason, see original post for details). Depending on how many "starts" I see this month, I will up the amount (originally $10) I will donate for your contributions.
This challenge is perfect for lurkers and those who would like to give back not only to fandom, but to a good cause. If you're looking for ideas for monthly posting, I suggest the following:Discussion topic
- post one topic each monthPoll
- Something fun and Snape/Lupin-yRec
- Focus on stories, drabbles, art, an era or plot, or leave yourself wide open to whatever catches your eyeThematic lists
- a list of stories or art built around a new theme each month - list does not have to be exhaustive.Pictures
- places, objects, scenes you create with action figures - whatever reminds you of Snape/LupinIcons
- Text only or images.Drabbles
- 100 words for 12 months, not too hard!1-sentence fics
- Even less than a drabbleMemes
- a set of questions for everyone to answer each monthVideos
- There's many Snape/Lupin videos out there if you look, and if you run short, Snape-only or Remus-only could fill out your month.Music
- No need to offer downloads, just links to videos or online plays or just the name and title of a song and why it reminds you of SSRLCandid Captions

Finally, as I will keep reminding, we are moving forward with a BLU2: Art Big Bang
. While details will be fleshed out in January, we will be accepting multiple images from Artists. Writers will then volunteer to create a story for the submitted images. Artists will have about 1.5 months to work if they wait until the official announcement in January. Or, hint, hint, they could get started now.... ^_^
