The Grand Challenge Has Been Met!

We’ve just managed to drag Severus into bed, his body chafed and bruised, and – aside from the occasional screams of “No!” during a flashback – he is sleeping rather peacefully.

Now for the thank you post...

Click for thanks and some lovely art )


The Grand Challenge Masterlist

Here's Severus' list of adventures, all conveniently in one place for you. So many thanks must go to all our participants that we're making an entire post about it.

Final Day of the Challenge

Having spent the last three weeks battling with a growling, biting Severus, suffering through sacrifce, death and redemption, and not least having to deal with foolish Gryffindors, sexy Slytherins, unlikely Ravenclaws, and angelic Puffs, we are now very near the close of the Grand Challenge fest.

Before we leave you to tend your aching hearts, and ending on a high, we have one more day for astounding writing and artistry.

Drabble Challenge!


The Severus Sighs Grand Challenge is just five short days away and needs a drum roll to lead it in. However, as I've confiscated any musical instrument not played by a chamber orchestra, we are instead going to hail its arrival with a Drabble Challenge.

Call it foreplay, if you will.

Remember, posting for the Grand Challenge begins 19th July, so be prepared!

Important Notice for Grand Challenge Participants!


Due to a hiccup with gmail, the Grand Challenge email address (grandchallengeteam (at) gmail (dot) com) was down for a week. We've got the problem resolved now, but if any participants have sent emails to us at that address and not received a response, we ask that you resend it. We don't want to miss any questions or entries!

For future reference, please expect that all entries will be replied to with a verification that we received it. If you do not receive such an email within a day or two of submission, please resend your email.

Grand Challenge Update Post!

Alright everyone! The Challenge Team knows you're busy—face down poring over your fics, fingers in the clay, water colors all over your nice new shirt—so here's a post to let us know how you're doing. Are the creative juices flowing in ways the likes of which mere mortals cannot possibly comprehend?

Or are you still staring at your opening sentence? (Bonus points if your sentence has the word 'cock' in it).

Feel free to whine, complain, wail at the heavens or even gloat here.

And if you're still in need of a beta, don't forget we have a beta post nice and ready for you.

Q: So, besides Severus, who's running this thing?

A: Along with Severus' usual sycophants—WhiteCotton, atypicalsnowman, Torina Archelda and thesewarmstarsjoanwilder and venturous have decided to brave Severus' ire. It is with much gratitude that the Webmistresses welcome these two into the yolk of slavery.
