Otter & Ferret Forever: A Hermione/Draco Prompt Fest
[On Dreamwidth] | AO3 Collection | [LiveJournal Feed]

Timeline: May 5, 2012 - January 14, 2013
Sign-ups: No sign-ups are required.
Prompts: Prompts are from the Otter and Ferret Gift Exchange 2012 and pinch-hitters. Works should be posted as a gift to the prompter, and prompts can be filled multiple times. Exchange participants can fill their own sign-up prompts, but gifting your fic to yourself is optional.
Other Notes: Otter and Ferret Forever has no word-minimum or word-limit. The fest is not anonymous, and works are revealed at the time of posting.

There's already one fantastic work in the Otter and Ferret Forever 2012 AO3 collection:

Witch's World (4637 words) by faviconscarlettcat
Chapters: 1/1
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Hermione Granger/Draco Malfoy
Characters: Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Pansy Parkinson

Hermione and Draco get caught up in a battle of the sexes but not everybody is playing fair.

Let the fest begin!

Edit - 2012/04/17 - You can find all of the prompts at this other post, along with submission instructions!

Missed the January Otter and Ferret sign-ups? Looking for a small, low-key fest? Or maybe you've finished your Otter and Ferret exchange piece or pinch-hit, but need more Hermione/Draco in your life? Otter and Ferret Mini-Fest may be interesting to you!

Otter and Ferret Mini-Fest is an anonymous prompt pick-up mini-fest, whereby all prompts from sign-ups and those left by pinch-hitters are offered up as free-game for the ten days prior to Otter and Ferret works reveals. The intention is to have a fun, low-key mini-fest of small works.

The fest is mini in two ways: All works must be under 1,000 words and the fest only lasts for about 10 days!

Also, prompts can be fulfilled multiple times! If you and four of your best friends all want to write for the same prompt, go ahead!


April 17 - Otter and Ferret 2012 pinch-hitter and exchange prompts are made public.
April 17 to 27 - Works are submitted to the Otter and Ferret Mini-Fest collection.
April 28 - Otter and Ferret Mini-Fest works and Otter and Ferret exchange works are revealed!


No sign-ups are needed! You do need an Archive of Our Own (AO3) account in order to submit works to the Otter and Ferret Mini-Fest collection. If you do not have an AO3 account, you can request one at this post. I have tons of invites!

Keep in mind that this fest is anonymous, so don't let anyone know which work is yours until after author reveals!
