The 2018 summer run of the sshg_promptfest begins tomorrow! This will be an intimate run of 18 fan works, and I'll post one work per day each morning. (I'll also attempt to be consistent about the posting time, but life is such that I can't promise to be exact.) I thoroughly enjoyed this year's entries as I prepared them for posting, and I believe that you'll all be as entertained as I was when you see them—if so, please let the creators know! No comment of appreciation is ever too short or even the slightest bit "late." :D

Creators, please remember not to reveal which entries are yours; the sshg_promptfest is anonymous until I post the reveal—and thank you for being so lovely to work with! *huge big hugs*

Members, you're in for 18 treats! *dances*

See you all tomorrow morning!

All best,




I've posted the first nine previews of the fest; please let me know if you need any changes by replying to the entries or emailing me. If you require changes, please list them in reply to the entry or the email rather than sending me a new file. Thank you!

The first deadline for extendees is 7 June, but you're welcome to submit your entries earlier if you finish them sooner than that.

Please email your questions to me at sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com.

All best,


Happy Deadline Day!


Good morning, sshg_promptfest Creators! Unless we've made other arrangements, your fan works are due by 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) tonight. Please review the fest's submission guidelines before submitting your entries, and don't hesitate to email me at sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [com] should you have any questions.

I'll soon be in touch with your previews, and your fan works will post in the order in which I receive them.

All best,



Quick note to participants

Work has been keeping me busy, but I should have time tomorrow to clear the fest's inbox. Good night!


Prompt claiming ends tonight (11:59 p.m. Eastern Time) at the sshg_promptfest! That said, I'll be asleep long before the official deadline, so if you're a tad bit late for it, I'll still accept your sign up with everyone else's tomorrow morning.

So far, two creators have submitted their entries, and I'll start working on their previews as soon as I close the prompt-claiming post. You'll remember from the rules, schedule, and submission guidelines that entries are posted in the order in which they are received, so there is an advantage to early submission. As well, please remember that fic entries should be submitted as text/plain text (.txt) files.

Questions? Email me at sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com. :D



hp_betas_wanted is a resource for those of you who are searching for beta readers. As well, please feel free to post your need for a beta or availability to beta in reply to this post. :D

Questions? Email them to sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com.


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.

During the April-May production period, I'll post answers to frequently asked questions in the mod account, as well as preview your entries for each of you individually there. If you have fest-related questions that aren't addressed in the rules, schedule, and submission guidelines, please feel free to ask them in reply to the mod account's welcome post, or email them to sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com.

Happy creating!

All best,

Iulia Linnea

Prompt claiming is ongoing through 15 May!

This is not the prompt-claiming post; do not attempt to claim prompts in reply to this post.
sshg_promptfest prompt claiming is about to begin! Before claiming prompts, please:

  • read the fest's rules, schedule, and submission guidelines, and direct any questions about them to sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com;

  • review the prompts carefully so that you only claim ones you can answer and have beta'd during the two-month production period (you may claim your own prompts, but you aren't guaranteed assignment of them as all prompts will be assigned on a first come, first served basis);

  • remember that art prompts should be answered with art, and fic prompts should be answered with fic;

  • and note that all entries must fit into one LiveJournal post.

Prompt claiming will take place in a members-only, screened post from 2 April-15 May. During the prompt-claiming period, I'll update the prompts list once a day to indicate which prompts remain available for claiming. I'll also ask you to submit a new prompt claim in the event that all your preferred prompts have been claimed. If you complete a fan work before 15 May, you are welcome to select a second prompt, but your deadline will remain 31 May.

Important Note: The sshg_promptfest is not a gift fest; it exists solely to inspire the creation of brief, stand-alone SS/HG and SS & HG fan works, ones that have been created for the fest and aren't part of existing works. If you see a prompt that inspires you, answer it however you see fit! By pleasing yourself, you'll most likely delight everyone else. That said, if someone prompts for a love story in space and you set your action in the desert and never go into orbit, you may well end up sharing your fan work in a context other than this fest. Honor your prompt, but create the work that you've been inspired to bring into being. *firm*

Oh, and I will be falling asleep almost immediately after posting the prompt-claiming post, so if you've questions, I'll answer them tomorrow.

Happy prompt-claiming! Happy creating! Happy sshg_promptfest!


Minor sshg_promptfest schedule change


This is not an April Fool's Day joke: Prompt claiming will begin on 2 April because my family will expect to spend Easter with me. *rolls eyes at self for spacing on the date* At least that will give us through the first to review the prompts!

Just to be clear, . . .

Please email me at sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com with any questions—and happy upcoming Sunday, however you intend to spend it!

*goes to add more prompts to review post*


*waves hello to you from the welcome post, which is not the prompt-collection post*

The sshg_promptfest will open for prompt collection today, 19 March! Before it does, please familiarise yourself with the fest's rules and modified schedule for 2018:

The 2018 sshg_promptfest Schedule
The SSHG Prompt Fest runs on Eastern Time.
 Prompts Collected  19-31 March 
 Prompts Claimed  1 April-15 May 
 Prompts Assigned  Once per day, in order of claim 
 Works Due  31 May (by 11:59 p.m.) 
 Works Posted  1-30 July 
 Creators Revealed  31 July 

Based on the poll, I think we're looking at an intimate fest, but that suits me quite well because I'm extremely busy at the moment and won't be working with an assistant mod this year. That said, I'll do my best to attend to fest-related business at least once per day. Please be patient with me. *huggles*

Got questions about the rules, schedule, and/or submission guidelines? Email them to sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com, or ask them in reply to this post!

P.S. The prompt-collection post is up! You must be a logged-in member of the sshg_promptfest in order to see and reply to it.

sshg_promptfest Poll: Got prompts?


Life is so busy that I forgot to cancel this year's run of the sshg_promptfest until someone, well, two someones, asked where the prompt-collection post was. That wasn't very many someones, so here's the deal: take the poll, members, and if there's enough interest to run at least a wee fest, I'll run one. If not, so long, and thanks for all the fan works! *smooches*

Poll #2079259 If the SSHG Prompt Fest runs this year, . . .
This poll is closed.

I'll submit prompts!


I'll claim prompts!



Sign ups for the next run of the sshg_giftfest are ongoing through 24 August! The SSHG Gift Fest is an anonymous gift exchange that takes place during the holiday season; its focus is on the pairing of Severus Snape/Hermione Granger. Do you love SS/HG? If so, you know what to do!

The sshg_promptfest 2017 Summer Reveal!


Well, that's all for this run, folks! I hope that you've enjoyed everyone's contributions. I also hope that, if you haven't already done so, you'll leave comments in reply to all the things works! *encourages*

Creators, you are now free to post your works wherever you like and to reply as your fandom selves to the comments that you received. While you're doing that, I'll prepare for the SSHG Prompt Fest's next run by clearing the mod account's flist. Please don't take it personally; the mod account's flist is always the list of the fest's current participants. :)

Without further ado, I present the SSHG Prompt Fest 2017 Summer Reveal!Collapse )

All best,


FIC: Heights and Fire (PG)

Title: Heights and Fire
Type: Fic
Prompter: iulia_linnea
Creator: iulia_linnea
Beta(s): arynwy and Shog
Rating: PG
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Prompt yourself for fic!
Summary: For great good reason, Hermione is afraid of heights and fire . . . and she notices things.

Heights and FireCollapse )

FIC: Almost Like Magic (PG-13)

Title: Almost Like Magic
Type: Fic
Prompter: delphipsmith
Creator: darkheartwalsh
Beta(s): The lovely, LJ-less RNR
Rating: PG-13
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Snape has been appointed a lecturer at Unseen University; he and Hermione attend their first faculty soiree.
Note: This is a Harry Potter/Discworld crossover fic.
Summary: Hogwarts' newest Professor is in a bit of a pickle. Hot on the heels of one of the country's most dangerous magical creatures, she's only gone and found herself transported to another world mid-chase. A world that is flat and disc-shaped, where magic doesn't work quite as it's supposed to, and where the local Librarian has a distinct taste for bananas. It's unfortunate, too, that this new world is also home to the last person she wants to see. Oh, and there's still the matter of that creature to deal with. Bugger.

Almost Like MagicCollapse )
