Starting at 12:01 am PST Wednesday, August 20, the Snarry Games will begin accepting sign-ups from fan artists far and wide for the Third Annual Snarry Art Games! The sign up post will be up for twenty-four (24) hours ETA: 48 hours!. It will be at our InsaneJournal here: snarry_games . Our teams this year will coincide with the Fic Games: "Team Dragon" and "Team Phoenix". The Genre choices will also remain the same:

1. Romance
2. Alternate Universe
3. Humour &/or Crack
4. Canon
5. Postwar
6. Angst
7. Alternate Reality
8. Horror
9. Hurt/Comfort

As with the Fic Games, The prompts will be revealed upon team assignment. The teams will be given several days to peruse both the prompt and genre list and will be asked to commit to their choices by the end of the weekend. At that point, the teams will be off and running! Posting begins October 6, 2008.

You can find our (2007) FAQs on the Art Games HERE, and our Art Champions Master lists for 2006 Art Games and the 2007 Art Games.

After we announce the teams, we will be posting our seasonal concrit poll. The Snarry Games grow every year, and the viewing audience always gives us great feedback. We invite you to continue to watch the comm., and give us constructive feedback in order to make this year’s Art Games the best ever! We always give our Games a thorough review before launching a new season.

**If you will not be available for the sign-up, but wish to participate, please send an e-mail to Snarry.Mod[at]gmail.com, and we will enter you in your absence.

Team size will depend on overall participation, and we hope to include everyone. Previous years have seen between 70-80 participants. Should the response this year exceed those numbers by a significant amount, we will then employ a lottery system. In the event a lottery is necessary, any artist who is not assigned a team will be placed on the Alternate list. Any alternate who does not get called into service during the Games will be invited to submit Crack!Art for the Closing Games Ceremonies.

Thank you for supporting the Snarry Games!

CUT! That's a WRAP!  

CUT! That's a WRAP!

Hey, everybody! I apologise for the delay.

We have some final things to wrap up, and then we go on a (VERY) short hiatus before we begin again in the very late summer for the Snarry Art Games.

♥I really hope everyone enjoyed the 2008 Winter Games, and I'd like to thank, once again, everyone who participated, from my Champions and mods, to the fans and judges. Thank you all so much!

♥I'd like to again point everyone to our fabulous Medal Award Ceremony, so you can once again look at the lovely art by [info]tripperfunster, as well as the wonderful graphics by [info]swtalmnd.

♥Reminder to Champions: Anyone wanting their individual poll vote tallies can request them privately through the Snarry Mod Gmail account. That applies to all Champions from previous years, too. ♥

♥Some links for bookmarking, as well:

Stories from 2007 can be found by various TAGS (soon to be found on the sidebar in the Comm main page, along with the links to the 2006 and 2007 Fic and Art), including by:
**Team Dragon
**Team Phoenix
**2008 Master List of Fic entries.

♥The stories will remain here unless otherwise requested by the authors, we can link directly to your sites and/or journals in lieu, just let us know the link you wish us to use. Authors are free to archive anywhere now that the Games are over.

♥ Don't forget about the fabulous Closing Games Bloopers and Stories, and the Opening Games Crack!Art!

If you wish to get to know your favourite authors or teammates a little better, don't forget to check out the Champion Interviews!

♥Team Dragon gave us a wonderful Soundtrack.

♥Mod Extraordinaire and Headmistress of Walking The Plank, [info]aliciamasters offers a WALKING THE PLANK UPLOADING AMNESTY to ALL Champions for the month of July - previous champions (authors and artists) from years past, take note!

♥♥♥Speaking of ART - guess what is closing in upon us? That's right, the 3rd Annual Snarry Art Games! We normally post the Art Games starting Late September through to October. It looks like this year (for the first time) we may have some competition from the Drarry quarter of fandom. I look forward to seeing our Artists step up to show them how it's done. Keep a sharp eye out, sign ups are coming soon!

♥ Also, speaking of Walking the Plank - don't forget to RSVP for the Snarry Meetup being held at Terminus in Chicago in August - anyone from last year at Prophecy can tell you the WtP meet was the talk of the town! Go to [info]snarry_terminus and RSVP HERE

Lastly, Our 4th Annual "Fandom Fest How-To Poll", in which we ask about how we can improve for next year, and how our changes from last year affected participants and fans alike, will be up in the next couple of days. We'd love to hear what you have to say!

On a personal note, I would like to invite all of you to check out the wonderful Thank you that Team Dragon did up for me, and there are some excellent and entertaining things to be seen there, such as drabbles, ficlets, crack and LOVE:


Thank you, [info]teamdragon!

I would also like to personally thank the following people for going above and beyond as ALTERNATES for their respective teams:


[info]iulia_linnea ♥!!



Thank you ALL!

Friends of Snarry:

The 2007 [info]snarry_games Winter Games are nearly over. We have just posted the last of a Grand Total of 64 Snarry stories. We are very happy and awed by the overwhelming response and support of this project, and would like to thank everyone who has been involved. The mods, the Champions, the voters and judges, the reviewers and reporters, the affiliates. Thank you all!

We now move into our final voting phase. We will be giving everyone until 6:00pm, Thursday, May 31/07, EST, to finish their reading and voting. The polls will remain open until that time (feel free to pimp your favourite team during this time), and then will be closed to enable the Mods to begin the counting process, which should last approximately 4 days. You can also take this time to edit your votes, if necessary. Instructions on how are under the cut, where you will also find a Master List of all the submissions to help guide you to the entries that you may have missed during this month-long Snarry flurry. If you are all caught up, enjoy the Drabbles to come!

Do not think the community will be idle, because tomorrow we begin posting the Closing Games Drabbles, as well as some more Champion Interviews. We also have new Affiliates to announce, and thanks to give. Those of you who have not yet seen the wonderful Opening Games Crack!Art done by many of last year's Games Champions, do enjoy.

Pimpin' Ain't Easy  

Original poster: snarrymod

Hi! How's everyone enjoying the Games so far? Feel like pimpin'? Lucky for you, our most beloved graphics queen mod, [info]pervart has made some pimp banners for y'all. She promises icons, too.

Pimp Banners for the taking, pimp the Games, your favourite Team, or your favourite story )

While we are discussing pimpin', the [info]snarry_games Teams have been having a little fun, supporting their teams. We have gathered as many of these pimps as possible.
Warning: May or may not contain trash talk. *g*

Team Wartime and Team Postwar get down to business )

Looks like Wartime is ahead a bit, yeah?


Thank you to the lovely anonymouse who gifted us with a LJ Gift Certificate! You keep us going, help to keep the polls open. ♥

Enjoy the Games!

This is a contest where teams compete against each other for the glory of their fandom!
This event involves teamwork, support, and best of all - fan participation!

Anyone who is a fan of Snarry knows that our fandom is primarily divided between two very different and talented camps.

Some Snarry authors love to make you cry.

Others love to make you melt.

We readers and fans enjoy it, either way! But which is the leader of the Snarry fandom?

You think angst writers have the stuff of legend? Put your money where your mouth is!
Join up or root for Team Angst!

Perhaps you believe romance is far worthier of the gold medal. Well, prove it! Sign up or cheer for Team Romance

There's really only one way to tell, and that's to set them against each other in a group effort battle to see which can win the audience's hearts!

Go for the gold, and run to join the community
[info]snarry_olympics! Sign ups for both teams will commence within the next twenty-four hours, so be ready to run that 100m in the qualifying race to get your chance to win GOLD for your team!

Once teams have been established, including spares (pinch hitters), a Team Captain will be chosen, and a matching set of themes/prompts will be given to each team.

WE, the fans and readers, get to be the judges!

Team size, challenge length, and posting due dates *TBA*, based on participation levels.
Prompt list to be revealed after teams have been assembled.
Scoring details and rules can be found in community user info.

Come and compete for the gold, or come to support your favourite Snarry authors!

The Pimp Banner - Check Back for Updates!  

Original poster: snarrymod

Thanks to the release of the Half Blood Prince, we now know that Harry Potter and Severus Snape are going off to war! The Wizarding World will never be the same. Before Book 7 (The Deathly Hallows) arrives, we would like to take the opportunity to explore this unique canon event.

Are Harry and Severus on the same side? Do they fight for the same thing? Which side will be victorious? What will happen when it's all over?

All these questions and more can be answered by our Participants this year, as they choose either
