- We accept all ratings from G - NC-17.

- Most importantly: have fun! Yes, that's a rule. ;D


Q. - Do I really need to read all the rules and FAQs or are they pretty much the standard ones for fests?

A. - They're pretty standard, but we'd still suggest you read them.

Q. - Where will the fest be held?

A. - The fest will be held at [community profile] snape_potter and all stories, art, and mod posts will be cross-posted to IJ, LJ, and DW. Commenting will be enabled at all three sites.

Q. - Will there be a call for prompts?

A. - Not this time. The theme of the fest is 'Back to Hogwarts'. That means all the entries need to be related (however loosely) to going back to those hallowed halls. Possibilities include (but are not limited to): Traditional Hogwarts era (Harry in years 1 - 7), 8th year, time-turner fics, Professor Potter (or Snape), Headmaster Snape (or Potter), next gen, or non-magic-AU. If you can fit Hogwarts in there somewhere, we can make it work. ;D

Q. - Do you have a list of *optional* prompts in case someone needs inspiration?

The Snarry-a-Thon generated some wonderful prompts that would fit in with the theme for this fest. You can find an abbreviated list here. Though expect to be inundated by rabid plot bunnies! Feel free to adapt, twist, or ignore them entirely. And remember, using one of these prompts is completely optional.

Q. - When will I be able to sign-up?

A. - Sign-ups begin June 7

Q. - How do I sign up?

A. - Sign-ups should be made in the comment section of the sign-up post on IJ, LJ or DW and should use the sign-up template. All comments will be screened.

Q. - Will people know who signed up for the fest?

A. - Eventually. ;D But all comments on the sign-up post will be screened. One of the mods will e-mail participants to confirm their participation. Please contact the mods at spfestmod @ gmail.com if you do not receive a confirmation of your sign-up.

Q. - May I submit crafts or jewelery as my entry?

A. - Absolutely.

Q. - What if I sign-up and then the muse dries up?

A. - There is no penalty associated with not being able to submit an entry. Though the mods would appreciate knowing if you need to drop out or if you need an extension. We're all friends here.

Q. - Where should I submit my completed entry?

A. - All entries and any questions should be submitted to: spfestmod AT gmail DOT com

Q. - Will the entries be posted anonymously? Who is doing the posting?

A. - All entries will be posted by the spfestmods. And they will be posted anonymously. A masterlist of entries will be posted at the conclusion of the fest.

Q. - When will our submissions be due?

A. - All submissions are due August 15.

Q. Do you happen to have a nifty icon I can use to promote the fest?

A. We sure do! Please credit [personal profile] veridian_dair for the art and [personal profile] lemondropseven for the icon.
