Snarry Summer Challenge 2016
Happy first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere! ;) It's the longest day of the year so it's the perfect time to announce our Snarry Summer Challenge!
From drabbles to novels, fluff to angst, anything Snarry is welcome during the month of July.
This year we'll be having weekly themes/prompts for those folks who like a bit of inspiration. Of course, you are free to create anything with a summery theme.
Q. When does the challenge begin?
A. Posting for the challenge will begin July 1, 2016. The challenge itself will end on July 31, to celebrate Harry's birthday but there will never be a time when we don't want you guys to keep posting Snarry. ;D A masterlist of creations made especially for the challenge will be posted on Wednesday, August 3th.
Q. Where do I sign up?
A. There are no official sign-ups for this challenge. If you are a member of snape_potter, you're all set to participate.
Q. When should I start working on my entry?
A. Now. Or later. This is our most relaxed style of challenge and the timing is entirely up to you as long as you post your entries by July 31.
Q. Is there a minimum word count?
A. Nope! Fics from drabbles to novels are welcome as is art from drawbles to graphic novels.
Q. How many entries may I create?
A. As many as you like! One full length fic, weekly drabbles, multiple ficlets, a piece of art for each weekly theme/prompt are all welcome.
Q. Are only romantic entries welcome in the challenge?
A. No. All types of Snarry are always welcome at Snape_Potter. While the theme may appear light, like a novel one takes to the beach for summer reading, what an author or artist chooses to create can be humorous, hurt/comfort, dark and angsty, or romantic.
Q. I hate summer. Am I allowed to participate?
A. Of course! You are free to send the boys somewhere cold, have them moan about the heat, or otherwise minimize how much of a role summer actually plays in your entry. The goal of this challenge, as ever, is simply more Snarry. :D
Q. Where will the challenge be held?
A. The challenge itself will be hosted on snape_potter on DW, IJ, and LJ. BUT! Since people will be doing their own posting, not all entries will be cross-posted to all communities. Though we strongly encourage cross-posting, we'll gather a masterlist of entries at the end of the month so people don't miss any entries.
Q. Where should I submit my completed entry?
A. All participants will be posting their own entries to the community. So anytime beginning July 1st, just post to the snape_potter community(ies) of your choice. Be sure to use the "summer challenge16" tag so we include your entry in our master list.
If you choose not to use warnings at the very least, per community rules, you MUST indicate and lock all Chan (under 18) entries and any NC-17 artwork.
As always, new folks and
old veteran Snarry lovers are equally welcome at snape_potter. If you need help posting or would prefer a mod post for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. We will be happy to help you.
We've got four summery banners to choose from!
