several genfic oneshots (various: Lee, Kingsley, Neville, Sirius, James, Regulus, Lily, Moody)

[ 06 September 2015 | 11:20pm ]

I was so sad that this comm seemed to have really, finally gone dormant, then so excited to see it no longer dormant! Here's a little round-up of some genfic oneshots I wrote but didn't post, during the time when I thought the comm wasn't active anymore. Details behind cuts, so the post isn't too huge.

Title: Step Right Up (Lee Jordan, Kingsley Shacklebolt)

Title: Neville Longbottom and the Year That Was (Neville and everyone around him)

Title: Brothers (Sirius, James, Regulus)

Spam, this comm and mod!fail SO HARD

[ 19 August 2015 | 8:09pm ]

Hello everyone,

I am sorry that you all were subjected to spam attacks. I have been a disgraceful mod, and I have learnt why: LJ was not sending me any notifications to this comm's submission queue, nor any comments/messages. That has been happening for well over a year, and so I thought this comm is dead, and got busy with real life.

_hannelore and torino10154, thank you so much for your vigilance. I had not received a single email in the past couple of years from this community, even though I do get LJ emails into my Gmail account (but I got only comments, not messages, and definitely not submission notifications).

Thanks to a person clever in the ways of LJ (my husband), I set everything right (as far as I can see) and even saw ancient posts submitted by users, which I permitted en masse. I offer you all my sincere apologies for the dismal state of this comm.

It has taken me well over two hours to go through all the comm settings and sorting things out. More or less.

I'm sorry, yet again, and I'm glad this comm is not the abandoned, friendless zone I thought it had become.

Warm regards,

Fic rec: Bedside Manners and Podfic version

[ 15 September 2014 | 9:03pm ]

Title: Bedside Manners
Author: serpenscript
Podficcer: mab
Fandom/Pairing Harry Potter, (Poppy Pomfrey, Minerva McGonagall)
Cover Art Provided by: mab
Length: 00:18:15
Rating: G
Link to Text: Bedside Manners
Rec notes: This fic is a lovely character study of Poppy Pomfrey and explores her friendship with Minerva McGonagall and Severus Snape at Hogwarts when Deathly Hallows takes place. It adds a depth to the staff's characters that we just don't get from canon and I believe complements canon well.

MISTI-Con wants you to share your creativity with everyone at the con by submitting to our Calls for Fan Fic and Fan Art.

Author: lettered
Title: The Pure and Simple Truth
Pairing(s): some Ron/Hermione, suggestions of Ron/Pansy, Pansy/Theodore Nott, and Harry/Draco
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Length: 65,000
Summary: Harry, Draco, and Hermione go to a pub. Harry, Draco, and Pansy go to a pub. Harry, Draco, Pansy, and Hermione go to a pub. Harry, Draco, Hermione and Ron go to a pub. Harry, Draco, Hermione, Ron, and Pansy―you guessed it―go to a pub. I could go on. In fact, I did. Harry, Draco, Hermione, Pansy, Ron, Blaise, Luna, Goyle, Neville, and Theodore Nott go to a pub. In various combinations.
Word Count: 70,000 It happened by accident.
Disclaimer: J.K. Rowling wrote Harry Potter, in case you didn’t know. This is a remix of talekayler's fic, Nunquam Securus
Author's notes: Thank you so, so much talekayler for writing this fic, and for signing up for remix, giving me the opportunity to write this story. Thank you to stultiloquentia for her quick beta, to ravenclown for some points of crit and enthusiasm, and the mods for their patience and kindness. And even though she will never see this, thanks to my_daroga for putting up with me while I wrote this.

You might be wondering why I'm posting a fic from hd_remix to genfic_hogwarts. The reason is that even though the fic I remixed resides firmly in the Harry/Draco category, the fic I wrote based on it ended up gen. The original fic described the Gryffindors and Slytherins as friends; I wanted to explore how that happened, so this fic focuses on friendship and people who are very different and who have very convoluted pasts learning to understand each other. There are definitely suggestions of Harry/Draco in there, but there's no sex or making out, and the story doesn't focus on their romance, but rather their friendship and their groups of friends.

I suppose some would say it's pre-slash, but which I don't just mean "pre-sex", but pre-relationship. However, to me, that still implies that the focus is on the relationship between Harry and Draco, when it's just as much about the relationship to each other's groups of friends, and those friends' relationships to each other. The short version is, I think it's gen, but there may be issues with categorizing this fic. If anyone has a problem with it, please let me know.

Ugh, I guess we weren't immune to this recent rash of spam either. :( Just wanted to let community members know that I have been in contact with the mod and LJ; hopefully we can get it cleaned up soon.

FIC: two Hermione stories

[ 06 December 2014 | 10:19am ]

Hello fellow genfic fans! I keep hoping for – and looking for – a Hermione community somewhere out there, a place where the focus is fully on Hermione herself, rather than as one half of a pairing, but there doesn't seem to be one. (Though if anyone can prove me wrong about that, I'd be thrilled!)

So, since I can't find a Hermione-centred community, I'm going to share two Hermione-centric genfic stories here. One is about Hermione (and Harry) as friends; one is about Hermione (and McGonagall) as colleagues. More Hermione for the world!

Title: Feels Like Home
Author: starfishstar
Rating: G
Characters: Hermione, Harry
Summary: Sitting together on her dilapidated sofa over a cup of cocoa seemed like such a cosy, homey sort of thing to do. And Harry, to Hermione, always felt like home.

Title: Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed
Author: starfishstar
Rating: G
Characters: Hermione, McGonagall, and forty bright-eyed and bushy-tailed first-year Hogwarts students
Summary: Hermione’s never stopped dreaming of inter-house unity. But these days she does more than just dream.

Houses of Hogwarts: looking for more writers/artists!

[ 25 May 2014 | 8:35pm ]

Houses of Hogwarts Fest
hh_sugarquill presents:
Houses of Hogwarts Fest

Sign up here!

Particularly, I'm hoping for:

2 Gryffindors
1 Hufflepuff
3 Ravenclaws
2 Hogwarts

Writing about Hogwarts could pretty much be anything that includes house unity themes or maybe just something that involves at least one member of each house. Or maybe it's a study on Hogwarts itself!

Fic requirements is only 700 words minimum, and art needs to be complete/finished. All pairings and genres are welcome, and I think gen writers would fit perfectly with this fest. :)
