Mod Note and the Future of Mini Fest?
Poll: Anon vs Not Anon


New 2019 Promo Banners and Updated Fest Info Coming Soon!

Timeline:
Prompting: September 5
Signups: September 15
Submissions Due: November 25
Posting Starts: December 1

Anon or Not Anon?

The mods were discussing the option of changing mini_fest to a non-anonymous posting format.

We thought this might be a particularly attractive option for artists and would hope to encourage more artist participation.

Regardless if posting was anon or not anon, the fest would still be mod posting... so you would still submit your fest creations via email(and ao3) and the mods would arrange the schedule as usual to spread out the submissions as needed. The only thing that would change would be that the fic/art when posted would have creator's names attached.

Please take a moment to answer our
POLL ON GOOGLE FORMS


We would love for you to let us know what you think! We don't want to make any rash decisions and definitely want the feedback from our valued fellow fandomers and community members!

We would love to hear from all of our past, present, and future Mini Fest authors and artists (as well as our readers/commenters)!

Thank you!

Mod Note and the Future of Mini Fest?

The fate of the fest is in your hands!

Please help spread the word about mini_fest!


mini_fest has been a staple of the HP Holiday season for the last 10+ years and we'd love for it to see 15 years and beyond!

However, signups are running very low this year. If interest is declining, this may unfortunately be the last year of the fest... So, if you'd like to see Mini Fest continue, please consider signing up and telling your friends!

SIGNUPS ARE OPEN HERE


We'd truly love any support you might offer to make this another successful year!!





And for those curious: Yes, mini_fest will also be posting to AO3 for the first time this year! If this is something you were concerned about please fear not! We are excited about this new step and we have plans to set up our collections soon. More details to follow.


♥ Thank you all for your amazing support over the years and we hope to continue for many more with your help! ♥

ART:

Searching for nargles [Luna - G]
Luna was searching for nargles but what she found were far more mesmerising.

Peace (Molly, Rose, G)
Molly and Rose enjoying a quiet evening.

Snowflake in your lashes (Pansy/Ginny - PG)
Pansy held back a smile as Ginny leaned in and kissed the snowflakes off her eyelashes.

I can't wait. (Harry/Draco - G)
Harry doesn't want Malfoy to get away or worse, kiss someone else at midnight, so he doesn't wait. Draco is pleasantly surprised.

Undressed (Pansy/Ginny - R)
Dressing up in the leather jacket and trousers at Blaise's New Year's Eve party was one way to get Ginny Weasley's attention. Now, Pansy couldn't think of anything else she'd rather do than undress Ginny and ravish her gorgeous body.

To New Beginnings (Harry/Draco - PG)
The New Year's Eve party at the Red Raven is in full swing. Harry is content after having a few drinks and spending time with catching up with friends. Then, Draco suddenly appears out of nowhere and slides next to Harry in his booth. Before Harry can say anything, Draco pulls him in for a tight hug, murmuring a soft, "Sorry I'm late," and "I've missed you," in his ear.

FIC:

A Lonely Christmas (Pansy/Ginny - 520 - G)
Christmas decorations aren’t so nice when all they remind you of are the people who are gone.

"Joy to the Fishes in the Deep Blue Sea, Joy to you and Me" (Draco/Neville - 2698 - PG-13)
Neville and Draco enjoy Christmas morning with Neville’s parents. Afterwards they have their own Christmas traditions of their own to follow.

Blessing of the Mistletoe (Harry/Luna - 500 - PG-13)
Luna experiences a host of firsts under the mistletoe. She knows that's always a good omen.

The Teddy Bear (Teddy - 618 - G)
A muggle toy is a surprise for Teddy Lupin and the Weasleys.
