Important Stuff:

There are fifty prompts listed, and each one needs to be written in its own story.

Each story can be any length. You could do a 100 word drabble or a never-ending story (well, logically, there'd be an end to it at some point, but meh).

You can do fifty stories about one pairing, or fifty stories about fifty pairings, or anywhere in between.

Drabbles and one-shots can be posted as part of a collection if you'd like.

Prompts can be combined with other challenges.

Any pairing is allowed: het, slash, femslash, incest, crack, etc. as long as it's all cross-gen! For cross-gen we're looking either two people from different eras, or at least a 15 year age gap between the two.

Any rating is allowed.

No due date!

Gamma Orionis

Sign me up, of course!

Re: the poll... I think I'm in favour of having just one combined cross-gen boot camp (especially as my OTP is already cross-gen n_n)

8/7/2012 #4

Yes, that was part of my concern, that most of the people with a favorite cross-gen would have already used it in the OTP. Don't want to end up making people have to do duplicates. I heard opinions agreeing and disagreeing with me, so I thought I'd ask as people signed-up to try to get as many opinions as possible. :)

8/7/2012 #5

Surprise, surprise, I'm signing up for this XD

And surprise, surprise, I think there should be just one Cross-Gen Boot Camp and not two different ones (like I already said in the battlegrounds).

8/7/2012 #6

I'm in. :)

And one cross-gen boot camp is fine. :)

8/7/2012 #7
Black Rose Blue

I think that it there should be two, and I must sign up. I'll give you my pairing, Dominique/Neville, but if you just decide to do one, then I'll do others.

8/7/2012 #8

I vote for just the one. Though I will be doing all the same pairing, since my goal is to write like 500 stories for them, since there are not many as it is. I will be doing Barty Crouch Jr/Hermione

Cheeky Slytherin Lass
I'm in!
8/7/2012 #10

I'm in and I vote for one boot camp

8/7/2012 #11
Lady Phoenix Fire Rose

Well, my vote is for two, but it doesn't really matter.

Hey, does anyone have any idea how many I've joined yet?

8/7/2012 #12

List updated. Lady, I was already counting your and Ralinde's votes from the Battleground. If you signed up for all of them, well that's 17. At least, I have 17 listed on my profile, and I think I've kept that up to date, so....

8/7/2012 #13
Lady Phoenix Fire Rose

Oh, I wasn't sure so I'd thought I'd make sure. Seventeen, wow, I think I'm missing one, but I can't think what one...

8/7/2012 #14

I lied. It's 18. This is the one I'm missing off the list, funny enough. How are you missing one though? You're signed up on all 18 and have them all listed on the status post in the BC forum.

8/7/2012 #15
Lady Phoenix Fire Rose

Oh, I have all of them? I must have miscount. I counted only sixteen after posting it, and then looked at the list on your profile and added one. Though I never did bother to recount it.

fabricated fantasies

I'm most definitely in! And I agree with most of the others - having one cross-gen boot camp, where people can choose whether to diversify or just do one, makes more sense to me.

8/8/2012 #17


I just wanted to let you know that currently this topic is in violation of forum rules:

7. When making a challenge, label it as a challenge in the topic title. When making a competition, label it as a competition in the topic title. If something is both, use challenge/competition. This makes things neat and simple. The difference between the two is that competitions always have prizes and judges, whereas challenges do not.

Please could you label this appropriately next time you're here, and, if you have any others that violate the rules, go back and re-label those too? It's just a simple matter of editing your first post.

Also, if you haven't read the rules, you can find them clearly marked in one of the pinned threads, HPFC POST-IT-NOTES. Please do read them before posting anything else if you haven't.

Schermionie, on behalf of the HPFC Mods.

@fabricated fantasies - I added you.

@Scrunchy - that's what happens when I post things at 4am. I knew something looked wrong about it, but I was too tired to be able to figure it out, and I never really looked at the title anytime I went back.

8/9/2012 #19
So could I have three pairings that I change between depending on the propt?
8/9/2012 #20

Absolutely. :)

8/9/2012 #21
Also, you have destroy twice. 24 and 36. :)
8/9/2012 #22
I'm totally in, by the way, which I forgot to say before. :p
8/9/2012 #23

Add you to the list. Thank you for pointing that out. I changed one to sleepy, since that's what I was when making the list. :p

magic doors
I'm in!
8/9/2012 #25

At a totally random not: lol, now you have 'sleepy' and 'hollow' underneath each other. (Just thought it was funny.)

8/9/2012 #26

@magic doors: You're added. :)

@Ralinde: That is funny! Thanks for pointing that out.

8/9/2012 #27
Holly The Sparkling Unicorn

I'm in. I'll be using Hermione/Narcissa definally, and maybe others.

8/10/2012 #28

I'm definitely in, even if I don't have time for it. I SHALL MAKE TIME.

8/10/2012 #29
keep my issues drawn
I can't help it -- I'm in!
