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!

2017 Fest Schedule at Snape_Potter  
This year we hope to have a fest that will meet everyone's Snarry needs. We will be hosting two fests at [info]snape_potter: Snarry-a-Thon17 and Secret Snarry Swap and a comment fest for Harry's birthday.

For those who like to work from anything goes prompts, there is Snarry-a-Thon17, for those who like to warm up with Snarry during the busy end of the year holidays, there is Secret Snarry Swap, and for those who like spur of the moment comment fests, we'll celebrate Harry's birthday in style in July!

The first full fest of the year will be the 9th annual Snarry-a-Thon. Prompt-based and anything goes, our signature fest begins posting May 1st.

The summer months are always a bit slow and we'll perk things up a bit with Harry's birthday party comment fest!

Our final fest will be December's Secret Snarry Swap with details to come closer to sign-ups.

Halloween Mini-Fest!  



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!

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.
