OPENING GAMES FREE-FOR-ALL CHALLENGE No. 18 from bluemoondreamer!  
S--A--T-U-R--D-A-Y...NIGHT! Alas, this is not coming to you from the Bay City, but we are very happy to bring you another wonderful installment in our free-for-all series!

Tonight's lineup is care of [info]bluemoondreamer a/k/a tsuki -- a limerick and a ficlet, for your reading pleasure:

Title: Oh What A Night!
Author/Artist: [info]bluemoondreamer
Thing/Place/Action: An alcoholic beverage / muggle cinema / walking
Drabble/Drawble/Ficlet/Limerick?: Limerick (although I didn't follow the rules at all...)
Rating/Warnings/Kinks: Crack, OOC-ness (or maybe just drunkenness)
Notes/Disclaimers/Betas: I wanted to try a limerick and this is what came to me. I looked up the rules of writing a limerick after I wrote it and found out I did it totally wrong. So maybe this is more of an anti-limerick :) Although, I did try to put it in the format I saw. Also, don't own; don't sue.


Oh What A Night! )


Title: Harry is Fed Up
Author/Artist: [info]bluemoondreamer
Thing/Place/Action: Three-legged cat, paper / loo / shouting, cleaning
Drabble/Drawble/Ficlet/Limerick?: Ficlet (500 on the dot)
Rating/Warnings/Kinks: Nothing really... PG-13 at most.
Notes/Disclaimers/Betas: I didn't think I would, but I struggled to fit this into 500 words. This idea jumped out at me when I saw the prompts and I had to write it. I've never written anything for a fest (opening games or otherwise) so I hope you'll like it! Also, don't own; don't sue.

OPENING GAMES FREE-FOR-ALL CHALLENGE No. 9 from Paperbacked!  
Our next Free For All Challenger decided to do a ficlet in verse! We are very pleased to
present [info]paperbacked!



Title: A Living Hour
Author/Artist: [info]paperbacked
Thing/Place/Action: paper/shore/singing
Drabble/Drawble/Ficlet/Limerick?: Ficlet-ish! 115 words.
Rating/Warnings/Kinks: U – warning for angsty sonnet, though.
Notes/Disclaimers/Betas I genuinely intended to write a smutty version of 'The Raven', and indeed got halfway through writing one, but it was so unimaginably, poke-your-eyes-out-with-a-spoon horrible, I wrote this instead. It's supposed to be a sonnet about Snape by Harry. Apologies to Elizabeth Bishop, John Donne and Shakespeare, respectively.

OPENING GAMES FREE-FOR-ALL CHALLENGE No. 8 from Team Snitch Champion Plantinshadows!  
Today we give you a special treat. Team Snitch member [info]plantinshadows was an Art Alternate for 2008's Team Phoenix. We did not get a chance to post her Alternate art during the 2008 Art Games, so we saved it for when we could.

We would like to post it today, along with her Opening Games Free For All Challenge Drawble!


(Both images are worksafe/PG)


Title: Over My Dead Body!
Author/Artist: [info]plantinshadows
Thing/Place/Action: Three-Legged Cat / Balcony / Shouting
Drabble/Drawble/Ficlet/Limerick?: Drawble
Rating/Warnings/Kinks: missing cat leg
Notes/Disclaimers/Betas I'm still new to computer colouring, so unfortunately I didn't have time for background and skin colour, please forgive. First I wanted to have Severus coughing - as in cat allergy, but I didn't know how to draw that. I wanted Severus to be really insulted at the 'looks like you', I wanted it to be a grumpy and ugly cat, though I don't think it looks that bad. Please take notice of the cat's bushy eyebrows! ;) xxx

Over My Dead Body! by Plantinshadows )

Title: He knows
Artist: [info]plantinshadows
Team: Phoenix!!!
Genre(s): Wartime, Angst
Prompt(s): Return to me
Artist's Notes/Thank you's: I tried depict how it would look like when Harry begs Snape not to go back to Voldemort. I tried to draw Snape looking all determined to fulfill his obligations, unimpressed with Harry's efforts to stop him and his own death... The latin on top of the frame means 'redemption' and 'hopelessness' at the bottom of the frame. I've used an online Latin dictionary, so please excuse any mistakes or misinterpretations on my side.
Thank you, Team Phoenix, for all your fab support with my gazillion attempts. Special thanks to [info]jin_fenghuang, [info]accioslash and [info]venturous1!!!
Media used: pencil, fineliner and a little bit of Photoimpact
