Woohoo! Who's ready to get their Multi! on?

So, here's how it goes. You tell me you're in, and I assign you a canon female to use as a main character. This main character builds herself a harem! Smexy!

Well, no. Not really. This is FF dot net, so the sexytiemz are verboten. Which is good, because these Harem!fics are usually frustratingly chaste, anyway.

"So," you may be asking yourself, "besides the main character having a bunch of lovers, what else goes into the Harem!Fic trope?"

I'm glad you asked. I've broken it down here:

Harem!Fic rules:

1)Takes place during Hogwarts years

a.Summer between 5th and 6th is traditional for Harry/Harem

2)Harem size builds

3)Harem is there to comfort harem owner, and help overcome an obstacle

4)Harem owner shy about all the attention

5)One of the harem is always the primo/a inter pares. But they're all totally cool with the arrangement.

6)School and parental rules are bent (after some light persuasion) to maintain the harem

I don't think I've read a harem fic, so I'm not sure about some of the actual mechanics, but I'll try it.

Before I sign up for anything, is there a limit on how many chapters there can be?

Now, if you want to join, here are the rules for the challenge:

1) You must use five out of the six rules. The one you omit (if you omit one) is up to you.

2) These are for Het pairings only. No Harems o'Chicks. No fanservice for dudes.

3) Make it as serious as a Harem!Fic can be. The trope really sporks itself. We don't need to.

So, to sign up, just let me know you're in. So far I have...

1) Christopher - Hermione

2) Rose - Luna

3) Ben - Bellatrix

4) Lo - Ginny

5) TimeLoopedPowerGamer - Cho

6) Susan - Katie Bell

7) Debbie - Minerva

8) Ewen - Hermione

9) Katy - Fleur

Nope. Make it long or short enough to tell the story.

Do you want one to read before you give this a try? Here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5604382/1/The-Accidental-Bond

(it's dreadful, but like a car wreck, you won't be able to turn away)

Whenever you get it done.

Is there a need for an actual plot? And can it be T-Rated? I'm not confident in my abilities to write lemons.
3/18/2013 #9
respitechristopher

T-rated is best. And the plot, or lack thereof, is up to you.

3/18/2013 #10
TellatrixForever
Ok. May we turn here, if we need advice for it?
3/18/2013 #11
respitechristopher

You'll be fine. Just follow the rules and it'll all be okay. But sure, if you get stuck, ask away in the Plot Bunny thread.

Sounds good.

Done and done. Lo, you got Ginny.

I'm so in. This is such a bad idea, it's good. My body is ready.

respitechristopher

Alrighty, TLPG. You get Cho Chang.

Thanks much. I think this will be a ton of fun. My brain is already full of horrible ideas. Playing this straight actually makes the eventual relationship madness worse. I love it.

I'm in the midst of a new piece so I think I'll just sit this one out and be a reader. This is an evil challenge/prompt/thing. I'm so proud of this forum.

This may be two libido draining days in the Magic Kingdom talking, but ... I'm in.

Susan: you have Katie Bell.

I don't think I've ever read one of these, but I'm a fast learner.

(Hint: I think the mature harem owner is under-represented - at one!)

3/19/2013 #22
respitechristopher

OK, Debbie. You have Minerva.

3/19/2013 #23
Rose of the West

Ooo... Minerva is a good one.

3/19/2013 #24
respitechristopher

And that's the one I was thinking of with allowing for one trope rule to be ignored. Because a Minerva/Snape-Filius-Slughorn fic would be awesome incarnate.

3/19/2013 #25
Rose of the West

Don't forget Moody.

Well, I've already got the people in mind for my Challenge: Bellatrix/Rodolphus/Rabastan/Dolohov/Remus Any suggestions?

There's all manner of wrongness there. I shall have to put my age-gap squickery to one side.

*squares shoulders to the task*

Eh, pick your own leading men, then.

And remember that Christopher says these things are often quite chaste.

No no! I shall keep them - it's part of the challenge. (If it were not chaste, I might have to run away!)
