So, after reading some very excellent advice from various fans here and on Tumblr and Twitter regarding the next fest for dramionelove, here's what I've decided:

It's going to be a Dramione Adopt-A-Prompt fest.

  • Any Dramione prompts or prompts where you designated "any ship/characters" or "any Slytherin/any Gryffindor" or "anyone's Harry's generation" or "Draco x Hermione x (other characters)" or "Draco/any girl" or "Hermione/any boy", etc. that you've made for any other fest/challenge are welcome to be re-prompted here, regardless of whether or not someone already wrote/drew the prompt for another fest (If it's already been written, a new take on it will be interesting to see, yes? If it hasn't yet been written/drawn yet, hopefully someone will give it a chance during this fest).

  • If you've never prompted a Dramione or open character-type prompt for any fest before, I plan to offer up a post where those who HAVE prompted such things before, and who don't really want to participate themselves in this fest, can offer up THEIR prompts for others to prompt. Also, once that post is up, feel free yourself to contact a fan who's prompted something in the past that may interest you if they don't appear on the list and ask them if they'd like to participate by offering up their prompts. If they agree, let me know & I'll add them to the list. The key thing to remember here is you must have permission to use someone else's prompt. It's their "thought-creature", much as a fic or a piece of art is yours if you create it. Please don't steal it from them - just ask. I will check with the original prompter before assigning the prompt to you if you go this route.

  • Fic exchange personal sign-ups don't count for this fest. Neither do fests/challenges where the Moderators pick/assign the prompt(s) available to the community. Only OPEN prompts (prompts made by the fandom to the community as a whole to pick from) count for this fest.


It's going to be an anonymous fest.

  • Reveals will come at the end of the fest with the Master List.

  • No posting your fic or art elsewhere until the fest is over & the Master List is up.


There will be a cap on fanfic and fanart size.

  • Minimum words for fanfic: 1,000 words

  • Maximum words for fanfic: 10,000 words

  • Minimum size for fanart: 200x200 pixels

  • Maximum size for fanart: no maximum size


The fest will allow all genres, all tropes, and all ratings, except "chan" (no penetrative sex under age 16) and threesomes/moresomes are allowed only if Dramione is the main focus of the piece (the third+ party member must be a secondary character to Dramione's relationship).

  • Warnings for explicit sexual content, explicit violence, dangerous habits, major illnesses, character death, explicit language, and any misc. dark!fic material will be required, and will be part of the submission header to give fans ample warning.


All pieces written/drawn must be original for this fest (not part of an on-going series) and completed (no 'to be continued'), and fic must be beta'd by a third-party and html'd for LJ when submitted. No exceptions.

  • Stories that contain grievous errors will be returned to the author to fix. Your Mod will not beta any pieces for this fest.

  • A post will be established for those who can volunteer their beta services. Contacting a beta is a writer's responsibility. The Mod will not broker a deal for you.

  • Easy HTML code will be included on the Rules page for those who aren't familiar with coding.


Banners will be given at the end for Best Reviewer, Fan's Choice, Mod's Choice

  • If you're interested in helping out with making these, please let me know!


Timeline of the fest:

  • Post for authors who won't be participating to offer up their prompts to the general public: 15 December, 2014 - 9, January, 2015

  • Prompting: 10 January, 2015

  • Claiming: 5 February, 2015 (open ended claiming until 1 May, 2015)

  • Submissions Due (firm date - no extensions): 5 May, 2015

  • Postings begin: 15 May, 2015

Hi everyone!
I've been looking for a fic on ff.net that suddenly came to mind. All I remember is a scene from the last chapter.
In the last two chapters, they won the war. Hermione got injured quite seriously and Draco blamed himself. So while she was still unconscious in St. Mungo, he left. I think Harry tried to stop him from leaving, but he did anyway.
A year or so later, the Ministry or Hogwarts had a celebration/anniversary event. All were invited and Draco came. Hermione approached him at the balcony and first thing she did was to slap him for leaving. They talked, yadah-yadah... he's staying for good obviously. Then somebody came and told them the event is about to start and they should come in. Hermione asked him if he's joining, but Draco chose to stay out in the balcony for a bit. I think he was saying thanks silently to Dumbledore (he's dead..) for saving him.

Does that ring a bell?

I have a question.

What do you do when you get to what you thought would be the end of a story, only someone does something you didn't expect? It's just happened to me, and I don't know where to go with the story. I hadn't planned on writing something super long, I don't know what the POINT would be. The point of the fic has been met. Should I just go back and force the ending to end? HELP!

Hi! I been search for a D/Hr fic I read a while back. I think its a marriage law fic but it could just be a forced marriage like Draco blackmailed Hermione into it. I can't recall if it was ever completed either. The only thing I really recall is that during their ceremony they do some sort of bond thing that gives off a color and lets you know what to expect from your marriage. I believe they got gold light which meant their marriage had the possibility of true love and happiness. It was also very rare to see that happen. Hermione had no idea what the lights meant and when she learned what it meant Draco asked her if she would actually try and giver their marriage a chance?

Does this ring any bells to anyone?

It's pretty clear from recently closed poll results regarding the next dramionelove fest that this timeline is the clear winner, so we'll go with it:

Prompting: 15 January
Claiming: 5 February
Submissions Due: 5 May
Postings begin: 15 May


However, we have a mix of wants for a theme, and many of them are close enough that just picking one theme from each category I offered will turn some people off. I get the impression that limiting the possibilities will be a bad idea in terms of participation.

So... how about this for a compromise instead:

a DRAMIONE ADOPT-A-PROMPT fest - Any Dramione-related prompt you've made in the past anywhere can be re-offered for this fest for someone to write/draw, regardless of whether someone's written it before or not (since you're pretty much guaranteed that a new take will come of it). It has to be a re-used prompt, though, not an original one made up for this fest... and it has to be YOUR prompt (you can't copy someone else's prompt and put it up without their permission, since prompts "belong" to the people who's imagination from whence they came).

EDIT: If you've never made a Dramione prompt at a fest before, I was thinking of allowing people who have done so to offer up their prompts to others to post in their stead, if they're not interested in participating. We could compile a list from them and allow people to pick which ones they wanted to use as their adopt-a-prompt.

What do you think? Let me know by commenting to this post below.

I'll leave comment open until mid-December to give people time to see this post, consider it, and respond. Then, I'll make my decision.
