2010 Harry/Draco Travel Fair

H/D Travel Fair is the 2010 Fannish Fair hosted at H/D Fan Fair. If you were one of the participants that year, please feel free to submit your work here!

We are handing Harry and Draco tickets, passports, Portkeys or Time-Turners to travel to anyplace in the world and beyond. The magic of your quill or brush will decide where they go and what adventures they experience.

What do we mean by a 'Travel Fair'?
The 2010 theme for hd_fan_fair will be 'travel' and we pretty much mean that in the broadest sense – travelling around the world, travelling through time or travelling to an alternate universe. There is something about travelling – being forced out of the comfort zone of your familiar territory – that makes characters react and interact a little differently. We find that very inspiring, and we hope you will too.

Whether it is a vacation the boys take together, or a trip where they meet-up by accident; maybe an Auror assignment they are sent on together to an exotic location, or a school trip where they are asked to chaperon their kids to Queerditch Marsh; we'll accept it all.

(Open, Moderated)

The Travel Fair will be an open prompt fest, anyone can submit a prompt, anyone can claim a prompt either for fic or for art. This will not be a fic exchange, though the posting will be anon. For more details check out the Rules Post.

Get your mind thinking of journeys and destinations and all the sex adventures that can happen there in. ;)

Claiming: June 23
Submissions due: September 18

Big Reveal: November

How do I go about prompting?
Prompting opens on June 5, which is Draco's birthday! On the day, the Prompting Post will go up on the Collection's LJ Community.

  • You may post as many prompts as you like, but do prompt only a handful at a time to allow others a chance to prompt.
  • If making multiple prompts, please put each prompt in its own separate post.
  • You can claim your own prompt.
  • Anyone (anonymous too) can submit prompts. You don't have to write/create art for the Fair to be eligible for prompting.

What about claiming?

  • Each prompt can be claimed once for art and once for fiction.
  • Please make sure your contact information is up-to-date.
  • Once you submitted your story or art, you are welcome to claim a second prompt.

I can't meet the deadline, what do I do?
While deadlines are not carved in stone, please try to keep to them. Still, this is not an exchange fest, so we won't feed you to Fluffy chase you down if you cannot manage the deadline or have to drop out of the fest. But please let us know as soon as possible, so we can re-arrange the posting schedule.

If you are having problems in getting your submission finished in time, please contact us sooner rather than later. We will do our best to help.

The mods can be reached at: fanfairmod [at] gmail [dot] com

Further guidelines according to Secondary Themes:
- Book Fair: you must include the book OR have scenes or characters be inspired by the book, as detailed by the prompt.
- Pet Fair: you must include an animal, animagus, patronus form or animal-shaped creature, as detailed by the prompt.
- Pottermore Fair: you must have scenes or characters be inspired by the Pottermore entry, as detailed by the prompt.

  • All work should be a stand-alone and MUST not be part of another series or a sequel.
  • All submissions must be beta-read and free of spelling mistakes. Please include the name(s) of the beta(s) in the story header. A header template will be provided before the submission deadline.
  • All submissions will be checked before posting for faulty html and SPaG. If necessary, the mods or proofers will make general spelling, canon spelling, tag changes and minor grammatical corrections.

Art:

  • Art should be a stand-alone piece, but can be in the form of a comic, a fanvid or other forms of traditionally or digitally drawn works.
  • The art work should be more than a quick sketch and show effort and time invested in the piece.

Flames and Unsolicited Beta Comments/Concrit:
Under no circumstances is flaming tolerated. One warning is given; if flaming persists the mods will ban you from the LJ community and delete your comment from the AO3 Collection. If you feel you've been flamed by a member of this community or a commenter in the fest, please immediately contact the mods.

The mods reserve the right to screen comments made to fest entries that include unsolicited beta advice. Comments are love! But please keep in mind that H/D Fan Fair is a fannish celebration of Harry/Draco and not a writing workshop. If you have valid concrit, please ask the author or artist after Reveals whether they are interested in hearing it.
