Ok, flist (and anyone lurking around)! I've had some comm/fest ideas lately and although I don't know if any of them will come to fruition, I would still like your opinions.
How would you feel about an HP comm focused on the First War?
Yes! So totaly want this.
Not something I'm interested in.
If it was around I might participate.
How would you feel about an HP fest focused on the First War?
Yes! I would totally participate!
I might participate.
How would you feel about a multifandom Slash BigBang?
Yes! I would participate.
If I participated it would only be as a reader/beta/chearleader.
hmmm Ok my first reaction was *meh*. I have a very rough draft of a ficlet on my hard drive of Lucius losing his virginity to Voldemort. I have kept it because my muse seems to be amused with that idea--very non con and all that. So I guess my ficlet would fit in with the era in the poll. I can see that there would be a lot of interesting things to write about in that era. Canon is vague enough about it that one could come up with all kinds of interesting stuff. *grins*
I don't know how to edit my answers in the poll so...
Thanks for your input :)

I love the idea of the first war, with Severus and Regulus mostly, but Lucius and Evan etc participating in the background. Sounds like a plan to me. I don't often write slash, and when I do it's usually BDSM. But multifandom does not appeal to me.
Haha, you know, I think this idea was spurred the multifandom Het BigBang I'm signed up for :p
Without the time limits and challenges of a fest, I would be concerned that a comm dedicated to the First War would just whither and die after the initial interest had faded. On the other hand, if you created the comm to use as a place to host an annual/whatever fest, then left it open for anyone to post First War fics the rest of the time, I think that could work well. Were you thinking of an exchange or a prompt grab, or hadn't you got that far?
The multifandom slash big bang doesn't particularly seem like my thing, but I am always happy to act as a beta or cheerleader.
This is all in theory right now. I don't have time for an advertisement campaign at the moment. But, if I were to do a fest, I think I would start with a prompt fest. I feel like those, overall, get more participation because people don't feel quite so pressured as with exchanges.
I prefer prompt grabs myself, although exchanges can be a fun challenge sometimes :) Please do be sending an invite my way once you've created that comm, and I'd be more than happy to help out with any organisational things if you need it. It sounds like it could be really great :)
A First War comm would be awesome - I prefer the DEs to the first order members. The Death Eaters are just more interesting, I think. There is first_order
, but it's only dedicated to the members of the Order of the Phoenix at the time of the First War.
If you do make a comm, then you could gauge the reaction to a fest. You could also do weekly or bi-weekly drabbles/drawbles or monthly challenges to keep things a bit more active. I'd totally join the comm, but I'm not sure I'd be able participate in a fest that happens this year because I'm having health problems. :/
If I do get this up, I doubt the fest would run this year.
I am also more interested in the DEs. But I think that making it more inclusive would attract more people.
