For the art/fic you will be RECEIVING:
I would like to receive Art/Fic/No Preference: No preference I would like to receive Slash/Het/Femslash/No Preference: Slash or het, so if my author/artist chooses one of the women I've listed, they'll have to be in het pairings. I would like to receive Fic/Art rated R/NC-17; PG/PG-13; G; No preference: Mostly no preference: all ratings are fine, but I'd rather not receive a PWP...a little plot would be good) I would like to to receive art/fic featuring one of the following (five characters minimum or Any): In order of their appearance on the list - Eileen Prince, Tobias Snape, Firenze, Argus Filch, Rubeus Hagrid, Igor Karkaroff, Minerva McGonagall, Millicent Bulstrode, Horace Slughorn (Note that 9 characters are included here instead of 5. You needn't include more than five, and you can certainly note that you've listed them in order of preference, so your author/artist has some sense of your taste) I am unwilling to receive art/fic featuring any of the following (ten characters maximum, including characters which don't appear on the exchange list above): Griphook, Dedalus Diggle, Ginny, Sirius, Aunt Marge, Fenrir Greyback, Cornelius Fudge, Marvolo Gaunt, Dolores Umbridge, The Others (*to learn who "The Others" are, look at the section labeled "Who Can I Reject?") (Note: Remember that the characters you've requested are going to be paired with somebody - and except for the characters you list here, that "somebody" is up to the author/artist. However, more info can be left in the "Additional Likes and Dislikes" section below.) I am unwilling to receive art/fic containing any of the following elements (note: ten elements maximum): Hardcore BDSM, Scat, Roman Showers, Rape, PWPs, Death, OOC-ness without some indication of why the characters are acting that way.
For the art/fic you will be GIVING:
I would like to give Art/Fic/No Preference: Fic (you don't want my art) I would like to give Slash/Het/Femslash/No Preference: No preference. I would like to give Fic/Art rated R/NC-17; PG/PG-13; G; No preference: No preference.
I am willing to create art/fic featuring one of the following characters (10 characters minimum from the above list, or Any): Any. I'd prefer to write one of the teachers, but I'll write anybody (although if it's a student, I don't want to write them underage) I am unwilling to create art/fic featuring one of the following characters (ten characters maximum from the above list). See above. I'll write anybody. I am unwilling to create art/fic containing any of the following elements (note: ten elements maximum: this is a challenge): Hardcore BDSM, Scat, Roman Showers, PWPs. Anything else is okay, even death fic if somebody really wants that.
Additional Likes and Dislikes
(Important Note: the giver isn't required to take these additional preferences about setting, era, tone, etc. into account, but it might help them come up with ideas, so include as many ideas as you like)
I'd prefer Snape paired with anybody you choose (just like I'd prefer to write Snape). I like hopeful endings, at least. And while I'll write any era you want, I'd prefer to receive something set in Harry's sixth year or after and something with some kind of plot. Apart from that? I'm easy.
Please keep the following in mind as you work on your stories/art:
*Please do some research before creating fic or art about places and peoples with which you're only vaguely familiar, and ensure that your work doesn't perpetuate oppressive, discriminatory tropes and attitudes.
The Beholder community has been fantastic so far in these areas, and it would be great if we could keep it that way. If you have any questions about whether your work might be problematic in its conception or execution, write to the Mod.
