Today is Extended Deadline Day!


Today is Extended Deadline Day! In the event that you're not able to contribute an entry by day's end, I understand and hope that you'll be free to enjoy the fest as a watcher.

All best,


P.S. If you need a day or two longer to polish things, that's fine—just please let me know. :D

P.P.S. The sshg_promptfest begins on 1 July! The entries will be posted in the order in which they were received.


Thank you for participating!

Unless we made other arrangements, yesterday was Deadline Day at the sshg_promptfest. Creators, expect your previews soon!

Prompt claiming is open again!

Prompt claiming is open again from today through 30 June for member-watchers of the community who didn't miss the first deadline and don't currently have an extended one. If you claim a prompt during this second round of claiming, your deadline will be 30 June (unless we arrange an extension). Artists? The sshg_promptfest needs you! (But we want anyone who believes that a 30 June deadline is possible!)

Please promote the SSHG Prompt Fest and the second round of prompt claiming:

All best,



One month down, one month to go!

Hello, Creators!

You have all of May to complete your sshg_promptfest works. Please contact me at sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com if you have any questions about them. I can't wait to receive your contributions!

All best,



Welcome to the sshg_promptfest, Creators!Collapse )

If you claimed prompts but don't see your name listed above, please let me know so that I can get you sorted out. If you've not yet replied to your assignment email, please do so immediately.

I've added you to the sshg_pf_mod's friends list to keep track of who's participating in the fest. Once the fest ends (or should you drop out), I'll remove you. Please don't take it personally; the mod account's flist is always the list of current participants. :) As well, from time to time, I post answers to commonly asked questions in the mod account; as a participant, you needn't friend the account in order to read them (but you'll need to actually visit the account in order to see the posts unless you friend it).

If at any point during the April-May production period you have questions for me that aren't addressed in the fest's rules, schedule, and submission guidelines (scroll down to read them), you may ask them here, in reply to the mod account's welcome post, or email them to sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com.

Happy creating!

P.S. Prompt claiming is ongoing through 30 April (which is the deadline to claim a second prompt after contributing your first fan work). :D

13 creators have claimed prompts at the sshg_promptfest! It looks like we're in for an intimate fest of fic. *twirls*

Prompt claiming is ongoing through 30 March 30 April (which is the deadline for selecting a second prompt), so if you know anyone who'd be interested in playing with us, encourage them to join and watch the sshg_promptfest and claim one of the 237 remaining art and fic prompts. :D

Have you questions about the fest's rules, schedule, and submission guidelines? Direct them to sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com!

Expect the prompt-claiming post at 9 a.m. (in about five minutes)! Prompts will be assigned at least once a day on a first come, first served basis. When you receive your prompt assignment, reply to the assignment email to verify your email address and intention to participate—and then create!

Your deadline is 31 May. If you contribute your first work before 30 April, you may select a second prompt with the same deadline.

Questions? sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com.

P.S. Remember that the prompt-claiming post will be locked to members (for easy age verification) and its comments, screened (because the fest is anonymous).

Have you read the community's revised rules, schedule, and submission guidelines?

Have you emailed any questions you have about the fest to sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com?

Have you reviewed the prompts and decided which five you'd like to claim?

Excited, yet? Me, too! Go forth and spread the word!

Prompt collection begins tomorrow at the sshg_promptfest! Please remember that the fest has some new rules, and if you've any questions, please don't hesitate to email them to sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com. :D

P.S. As always, the prompt-collection post will be locked to members and screened, so remember to log in so that you can see it.

It's getting to be that time of year, again: the sshg_promptfest will open for prompt collection on 10 March! Before it does, however, you should know that I've made some changes to the rules. As always, you may find the SSHG Prompt Fest's complete rules, schedule, and submission guidelines in the community's profile, and to avoid confusion, I urge you to read them before participating. That said, here are the highlights:

  • You may offer prompts anonymously.

  • If you submit your entry before 30 April, you may claim a second prompt (but your deadline will remain 31 May).

  • You may ask for an extension in advance of the deadline (but it's unlikely that I'll grant extensions for second works).

  • Finally, you may explore the relationship between Severus and Hermione however you like, but all fics must be between 1000 and (approximately) 10,000 words—in other words, all your words (including your header) must fit into one LiveJournal post.

As well, I have two clarifications to offer. First, when submitting prompts, the fifth one you offer may be (at your discretion) for art, for fic, or for a choice of art or fic (at the promptee's discretion). Second, if you're an artist, you are not required to use a beta, but there's a place in the header to list one if you do.

If you've any questions about the rules, schedule, and submission guidelines, please email them to sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com, or ask them in reply to this post.

I hope to see you in March! :D

The Snape Showcase is back!
Dear sshg_promptfest Members & Watchers,

I hope that you enjoyed the 2016 summer run of the SSHG Prompt Fest, and I want to thank everyone involved for keeping the SSHG ship afloat on LJ waters through another splendid fest! Particularly at a time when the draw of other fan-friendly platforms is strong, it was good to see so many people new to LJ participate. I include Posting Mod in this, as it was she who kept our entries posting when I could not. *clings gratefully to Posting Mod* Now, I'm not going to break the hit counts for our works down into specifics, but I will tell you that they were quite gratifyingly high. Perhaps next run, dear lurkers, you'll feel more comfortable engaging with us; you're more than welcome to do so! From the shortest note of thanks to the longest squee, there's nothing better, as a creator, than knowing one's work is appreciated. *'s commenters, reccers, and reviewers*

As well, I give tremendous thanks to you, prompters, for inspiring us to bring new SSHG-themed fan works into the world: Anonymous, Anonymous, Anonymous, adelaidearcher, banglabou, bonsaibetz, droxy (via my self-prompt), hiddenhibernian (via self-prompt), jadeandjuniper, lenaa1987, mywitch, palathene, stronghermione1, themightyflynn, too_dle_oo, and willibald (via self-prompt) each inspired one work; articcat621, delphipsmith, dragoon811, hikorichan, leontinabowie, and ms_anthrop each inspired two works; and toblass inspired three works, one via self-prompt. We couldn't have done it without you, prompters!

Creators, we did it! With the help of our support teams—alpha and beta readers, cheerleaders, formatters—we were able to enrich the SSHG fandom with 31 new fan works! Congratulations and kudos, everyone; our efforts and energy resulted in the happy entertainment of many, and we should all be proud of ourselves! Several of you, I know, had personal challenges to manage in order to participate, and I'm so glad that you were able to do so; the fest wouldn't have been nearly as successful as it was without your participation. *smooches* (For myself, I'm just glad I finally met a deadline and didn't have to kick myself out of my own fest for once!) *\o/*

Now that the reveal is up, we're free to post our fest entries to our journals and archives, and to reply as our fandom selves to the comments that we received (unless *coughs* that's not necessary because one employed a comment-answering sock account to pseudonymously answer one's comments during the fest *coughs*). Next year, trolls permitting, it's my hope that I won't have to disable anonymous commenting in the community.

One last thing: As soon as life permits, I'm going to post about just how to encourage the answering of our previous runs' unanswered prompts. We might accomplish this in the form of one long, open-ended claims post of unanswered prompts, or through a fest featuring nothing but the unanswered prompts of SSHG Prompt Fests past—or perhaps in a manner that one of you will suggest in comments. I'd very much like to see the well of inspiration that is our surfeit of unanswered prompts promoted so that creators might take inspiration from it and share their resultant fan works here with other like-minded fen. That is the point of the sshg_promptfest, after all!

Without further ado, I present the SSHG Prompt Fest 2016 Summer Reveal!Collapse )

All best,

iulia_linnea/Iuls (rhymes with "ghouls," and that's an uppercase, silent "i" there at the beginning!)
