Rating: PG
Length: 2800 words
Character(s): Hagrid, Albus Severus, background trio/Ginny

I'm aware a few people are having problems posting comments on LJ at the moment (myself included, Grrr), which is at least a reminder to me to post the fics on our dreamwidth account.

Which is, should any of you find it easier to read or comment over there:


I hesitate to ask this and create more work, but in the spirit of bring an obliging hp_holidaygen elf, would it be useful to post at insanejournal as well? Would any of you read or comment there more than at livejournal or dreamwidth?
Title: Masquerade: The Last Yuletide of Regulus Black
Author: hikarievandar
Written for: alley_skywalker
Rating: T
Length: 1021 words
Character(s): Regulus Black, Narcissa Malfoy, Barty Crouch Jr, Bellatrix Lestrange, Lord Voldemort
Warnings: Spoilers for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Author's Notes: Even though it took me a while to think of what to write for this, I really enjoyed the challenge. I was so, so glad that Regulus was one of the requested characters: he’s my favourite background character and getting the chance to explore his character a bit more was fantastic.

The italic quotes come from As You Like It by William Shakespeare.

24 September 2013 @ 12:37 am
Sign-ups are closed, and we have 15 participants - welcome to you all!

I've started looking at sign-ups but I'm not quite there yet. I'm travelling this week and may not have great internet access, so while I'll try to get assignments out in the next couple of days, please bear with me if that proves not to be possible. I'll post here again when all assignments are out.

ETA: Sign-ups extended to the Equinox! You can sign up until the end of Saturday 21 September.

Welcome to the 2013 round of hp_holidaygen!

As a community, we aim to spread some gen joy (or sorrow, or horror) in the weeks leading up to Christmas. You can join in by:
  • Signing up to write and draw for another author/artist
  • Helping with pinch-hitting, should that become necessary
  • Leaving feedback for our authors and artists

We'd like this to be an exchange of feedback as well as fic. If you sign up as a creator, you are also signing up to thank the person who creates something for you. But what makes this a community is the shared response to everyone's work. December is a busy time and few people have time to read and review everything posted, but please consider committing to review at least one piece each week (more if possible) and to read about characters you might not normally be drawn to.

Please join us! If you'd like to write or draw for the fest:
  1. Check you're happy with the rules, which are posted on the community's profile page.
  2. Copy and paste the template below into a comment to this post, and fill in the information. Please don't go overboard - very long lists of likes and dislikes are harder to assimilate and match.
  3. Sign-ups close at midnight PST 21 September
  4. You will receive an assignment to create for another participant. It will probably not be a perfect match but at least one character/scenario request will match what you're willing to create.
  5. Please acknowledge receipt of your assignment.
  6. If you've any questions for your recipient, send them to the mod who will pass them on.
  7. Enjoy creating!
  8. Send in your completed work by 24 November (midnight PST).
  9. Enjoy all the lovely fic and art from 1 December - and don't forget to leave feedback!

Please sign-up using this template:

Comments are screened.

This year we'll also be posting on dreamwidth; you can sign up here or there

Here are your important hp_holidaygen dates:

September 5: sign-ups begin
September 16 21: sign-ups end (midnight PST)
September 23: assignments mailed
November 24: assignments due (midnight PST)
December 1: posting begins
January 1 (or thereabouts): authors and artists revealed!

Any further questions can be directed to your moderator or sent to hp.holidaygen@gmail.com. Meanwhile, please promote the exchange -- the more participants, the better!

Your mod for 2013, chthonya.

Just to let you know that we were unable to post the reveal post yesterday as LJ seemed be having a succession of senior moments.

We'll post as soon as we can, but that may be a day or so if this continues. Apologies for the inconvenience and I hope everyone is having a happy and safe New Year.
