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.

Announcing Harry's Birthday Party!  


The challenge will run from July 10th through the 31st. From drabbles and drawbles to novellas and oil paintings, anything featuring Severus/Harry is welcome!

We do have a few prompt ideas to get you started:

♥Create a birthday card from Severus to Harry.
♥Harry's perfect birthday.
♥A summer holiday getaway (or staycation) for Harry and Severus.
♥Birthdays through the years. 25, 50, 75, 100, or even 125!

•There's no minimum word count and the standard comm rules apply. All underage creations as well as any NC-17 art must be locked.

•Your entry does not need to use any of the prompts. They are there merely as suggestions to get you started. The birthday theme does not have to be the most important facet of the piece.

•All entries should be posted to one (or all) of the [info]snape_potter communities rather than just linking to your own journal or AO3. You may repost your entry at the end of the challenge.

•There will be a wrap-up at the halfway point of July 21st and the master list will be posted on August 2nd.

•Please use the birthday2017 tag to make sure we get your entry on the master list.

Simple enough? Let's make this a very Snarry birthday party!

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!

In light of the release of Cursed Child, if you use any information from the play or transcript, please indicate this on the warning line of your header.

We will remind everyone on mod posts (for fests, etc) until the end of the year. After that, while you may wish to continue doing so as a courtesy to your readers, it won't be required.

Walking the Plank Update  
I wanted to say thank you to those who've made donations to Walking the Plank since our announcement last week. It'll be a good year before we bother you again. *g*

That said, the donate button at WTP is working again and we won't say no to anyone who would still like to contribute. ;)

Thanks again for your generosity!

WALKING THE PLANK ANNOUCEMENT  
[info]alisanne, [info]perverse_idyll, [info]writcraft and myself, [info]torino10154, have the great privilege and honor to announce that we are Walking the Plank's new team of administrators.

Our primary purpose is to preserve the amazing Snarry that is archived there. We also plan to clear the queue of entries waiting for approval and make it possible for creators to upload their new works as well.

Maintaining an archive is not without cost and, just like your local PBS affiliate, we do need to fundraise. If you have $10, $5, or even $1 to spare, every little bit counts. Obviously larger donations are greatly appreciated. :D

The Walking the Plank PayPal email address is wtp.administration@gmail.com

Thank you in advance for any contribution you are able to make.

We hope to keep Walking the Plank--with its archive of classic Snarry fics--going for many years to come.

ETA: This should work for donations.

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.

Some FAQs Under the Cut... )

We've got four summery banners to choose from!

You may begin posting July 1st! We can hardly wait. :D

The Tea Series  
At the request of the author, Telanu, Walking the Plank will be removing the Tea Series as well as her other works from the archive. She has graciously allowed the Snarry community one week to save any of her fics that are currently archived there with the explicit directive that they not be reposted in whole or in part, with her name or without, on the internet. These would be for readers personal use only.

You can find her works here.

You have until midnight Pacific time on April 9th, to save these before they are removed from the archive permanently.

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!
