A very MINI mini_fest for 2020!


Art by cremebunny


I'm so very sorry that we are so late to the party this year.

I know a few of you have asked about a mini_fest for 2020, and I've crawled out of my hibernation cave to try and offer a very small version of our fest this year to keep the tradition going.

I'm not expecting a large turnout, but if you'd like to send us some prompts or submissions we'll have a modified fest this year.

We will follow the same basic fest rules this year, except we'll have a modified posting schedule depending on how many submissions we receive.

(We won't be able to post every day in December, but even if we have just a very few signups/submissions we'll post them all in one go on or near Christmas.)


Timeline
Prompting: November 28 - December 1
Signups open: December 1
Last day to send your work: December 20 (but the earlier the better)
Posting Start: TBD depending on number of submissions


It'll be a smaller fest this year, but please spread the word and send us any holiday ficlets or art and we'd love to share them!

ART: Teach Me How to Love (Percy/Oliver - PG-13)

Title: Teach Me How to Love
Author/Artist: sugareey
Pairing(s): Percy/Oliver
Prompt: 2016 prompt: Percy/Oliver - The year that all the Weasleys stay at Hogwarts, Oliver does too, having Percy and Oliver alone in their dorm room for the entire Christmas holidays.
Art Medium: Digital
Rating: PG-13
Contains: Sweet fluffiness
Disclaimer: Harry Potter characters are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No profit is being made, and no copyright infringement is intended.
Notes: Title inspired by one of Shawn Mendes' newest songs, "Teach Me How To Love". Head!canon had me thinking they actually ended up staying at school during their 7th year too (not just 5th year in 1991), because there's no point of wasting opportunities with a Head Boy and Quidditch Captain. ;) Here's to the end of a year and start of a new one. Cheers, and enjoy!
Summary: If staying at Hogwarts for the holidays meant having an empty dormitory room all to themselves, Percy and Oliver were completely fine with that. That just meant having more time to touch, tease and caress each other without any interruptions.
