Gamma Orionis

Hello, hello, hello! I, Gamma Orionis, and my dear friend/wife, Cheeky Slytherin Lass, are here to address a very serious situation in the Harry Potter fandom.

This situation is that there's no freaking femmeslash here.

The Mission

To increase the amount of femmeslash in the Harry Potter fandom.

The Challenge

At the beginning of each month, Cheeky Slytherin Lass and I will post a list of ten themes. Seven of these themes will stay the same each month: fluff, smut, angst, tragedy, crack, AU (any) and crossgen. Each month, there will also be three new themes, which will be slightly more specific. Participants will write femmeslash stories for the themes.

There will also be a list of fifty prompts. These will be all sorts of prompts - words, quotes, phrases, lyrics, et cetera, et cetera. You can use these prompts or not - as many of them as you want, or none at all.

The Rules

  • All fic must be focussed on a femmeslash relationship: that is, a relationship between two or more female characters. (Female in canon; not fem!Harry or fem!Draco)
  • All fic must fit in with at least one of the themes - but the themes cover a lot, so that shouldn't be too hard ;)


All participants will receive twice the number of reviews as the number of fics that they write. For example, if you write one fic, you'll get two reviews. If you write five fics, you'll get ten reviews. And so forth.

An additional two reviews, plus a drabble for the pairing of your choice will be awarded for each of the following categories each month:

  • Best Angst
  • Best Romance
  • Best Humour
  • Best Crack Pairing
  • Best Incest/Cousincest
  • Best Smut
  • Best Dark!Fic

If you participate in ten of the monthly rounds consecutively, you'll receive an additional ten reviews and a one-shot for the pairing of your choice.

Cheeky Slytherin Lass
Hedwig (Kelly, right?): I'm glad you like prompt 38. It's one of my favorite lines from Rent, so I had to add it.
1/25/2013 #16

Amber, darling, I told you I would join the love. So here I am. Sign me up! :D

Cheeky Slytherin Lass
Sam: Yay! Femmslash love!
1/25/2013 #18

I'm in. I've been becoming more addicted to femmeslash as the days go on.

1/25/2013 #19

I'm in :) Are we supposd to write one story for all of the themes, or use a few of the themes in one story?

1/25/2013 #20
Cheeky Slytherin Lass
DolbyDigital: Since the focus is to increase the number of femmslash stories on here, just write as much as your heart desires. That's my stance, at least. I think Gamma and I agreed on that, but I'll have to wait and let her be the deciding voice. Ami: That warms my heart. Welcome, love.
1/25/2013 #21
Gamma Orionis

MissDominiqueLysander: Woo! Congratulations!

DolbyDigital: Amber's correct; you can write as many or as few stories as your heart desires. You can use more than one theme in a single story if you want, or you could just use one, or you could do separate stories for separate themes... whatever you like! :)

Everyone: It's so fabulous to have you all participating! I can't wait to see what you all write :)
