HP Mirror Mirror
the point of view switch fest
|Name:||HP Mirror Mirror: The Point-of-View Switch Fest|
|Theme:||Fest for rewriting fics from a different character's point of view.|
This fest was launched by ravenna_c_tan after an LJ conversation with la_dissonance about how much fun it could be to rewrite certain fics from other characters' points of view than the narrator. One of Ravenna's favorite fics of all time is Rushlight's fic Through a Shattered Mirror, which is told from Harry's POV. The fic has a companion piece from Snape's POV, too, Walking The Mirror's Edge, and these stories stand both as a terrific example of the type of fics this community promotes, their titles also converge nicely with the concept of holding up a mirror to a fic, to examining what is there from the other side, hence the name of this comm: HP Mirror Mirror.
This fest is limited to fics in the Harry Potter universe and also limited to slash, at least for the first round. (If people really really want a gen round, or a het round, please drop a line and let us know.) For now, we are holding up the mirror to slash in particular because the reversal of point-of-view is the most illuminating in 'relationship' fics, and in particular plumbs that mystery of all sexual encounters of 'what is my partner thinking?' And, well, Ravenna already runs a fest that includes gen & het fic and she wants more slash right now!
At this moment we're considering the start and end dates for the fest and will update this info when we are sure.
The first part will be a prompt submission period, where readers and writers can suggest fics to be given the Mirror Mirror treatment. Those whose authors approve their inclusion in the list will then be compiled into a claiming list. We'll allow writers to "pre-claim" the fic that they suggest, too, if that's the one that they really want. Writers can, of course, lay claim to one of their own fics!
The claiming period will then allow fic writers who didn't pre-claim something specific to lay claim to the available fics. Not all fics will necessarily be claimed.
There will then be a 4-8 week writing period before posting begins. Participants will each be given a posting day and post for themselves on their designated day.
1. All participants must be 18 or older and/or old enough to produce and consume porn legally in their country/location.
2. All fics submitted must be slash. Any pairing allowed.
3. All submissions must be beta-read before posting. REALLY.
4. More rules to be added in a bit, right now we're just getting our act together.
