2018 Fest Schedule at Snape_Potter  
Happy birthday, Severus Snape!!! What better way to celebrate our favourite Potions Master's birthday than with the announcement of our fest schedule for the year! ;)

We will be hosting two fests at [info]snape_potter this year: the 10th edition of Snarry-a-Thon and Secret Snarry Swap in December.

For those who like to work from anything goes prompts, there is Snarry-a-Thon18 and for those who like to warm up with Snarry during the busy end of the year holidays, there is Secret Snarry Swap.

Our 10th annual Snarry-a-Thon is a prompt-based, anything goes fest that will begin posting April 16th.

December's Secret Snarry Swap will close out the year, with details to come closer to sign-ups.

Snape_Potter Membership Reminder  
We've had a flurry membership requests recently (Thank you!!) but unfortunately we've had to turn many down because they do not have the required age statement. We also attempt to send PMs to the journal users that are rejected but if one hasn't validated his/her email address the PM will not go through. This has effected quite a few potential members at our DW site especially.

Here is what is required for membership:

•You need to have an Age Statement (stating you're over 18) or the YEAR of your birth displayed in your profile before your application to join the Snape-Potter community can be accepted. It really can be as simple as "I am over 18."

•If you have a YEAR of Birth listed, please check to see that it's viewable by everyone.

Simple as that! If you've only been watching the comm, we encourage you to join today so you will be able to access all the wonderful fic and art we have planned for ours fests as well as member entries.

An additional note, if you are a member at one community and primarily stick to that journaling site, you should have no difficulty seeing entries. If, however, you move between LJ or IJ and DW, you need to join each community you plan to utilize.

Important Member Information  
Regarding the recent technical difficulties that IJ has suffered....

If you are a member of [info]snape_potter on IJ but cannot see this post, comment to this entry.

We will need to remove your membership and then invite you back again. You can also remove yourself and reapply for membership but it's easier on our end if we already know you were a member.

This will be important, particularly during fests, which often have locked entries. However, as your mods discovered yesterday, if you are a posting member, the comm will allow you to post a locked entry but even you will not be able to see it afterward.

We will try to remind people about this periodically, especially before/during fests.

Thanks for your continued support!

Technical Difficulties  
Since IJ's recent extended downtime, personal journals and many communities have had issues.

For your personal journal, you should double-check any filters you have as they may not have remained the same.

Here at [info]snape_potter, there has been an issue with adding tags. The settings have been modified and, hopefully, that's corrected. If you have any other problems, let us know via comment here or email to spfestmod at gmail dot com.

Thanks!

The format for our Halloween Mini-Fest is simple:

Beginning Monday, October 17th, you may leave up to seven autumn/Halloween prompts. They can be spooky, romantic, humourous, angsty, etc. As long as the main pairing is Severus/Harry, anything goes!

There will be no claiming of prompts. Creators can begin writing or drawing immediately. Prompts may be filled multiple times.

All entires will be self-posted to [info]snape_potter. If anyone needs help or would like the mods to post for you, don't hesitate to ask.

Posting will continue through All Soul's Day, November 2nd, and the master list will post on November 4th.

Further details as well as both the prompting and posting templates will go up on October 17!

The Valentine Comment Fest begins Monday! We'd love to see a wide variety of prompts so put on your thinking caps and meet us back here then. *g*

While you wait for the comment fest, peruse the Snarry-a-Thon prompts, pick your fave and sign-up! ;)

Valentine Comment Fest  


From February 8-21 we'll celebrate Valentine's Day with Severus and Harry!

The rules for this comment fest are fairly simple but there are some important ones. Please read closely.

•The primary pairing must be Severus/Harry as per our community rules.
•Fic and art are welcome. Drabbles, drawbles, ficlets, etc. from 100 words on up.
•You may leave as many prompts as you like but leave just one per comment.
•Prompts should focus on Valentine's Day but can be anything from fluffy to dark, romantic to kinky.
•Any rating is welcome.
•Creators should reply directly to the prompt comment they are filling.
•Prompts may be filled more than once.
•Use appropriate warnings when necessary.

Deviations from our usual fest rules:
•All prompts/fills will be on LJ only. Comment fests work best when all activity is in one place. We will allow anonymous comments or you can log in with OpenID from IJ and DW.
No chan or any NC-17 art will be permitted for this fest only because then the entire entry would need to be locked, diminishing the number of people able to participate.

If you have questions or comments don't hesitate to ask. This is something new for us so we may not have worked out all the kinks. ;)

The festivities begin Feb 8th!

Always  
Alan Rickman, giant of British screen and stage, dies at 69

Utterly devastating news today but we thought that perhaps people would like to share their thoughts here about Alan Rickman. About Snape, his other roles, anything about this legendary actor is welcome.

We love you, Alan. Always. ♥
