    Alright, here's the plan for the next contest:

    Two months, deadline is January 2nd, 2012 - so you can cure your hangover before you submit.

    Topic is whatever you want it to be - Free For All. Not explicitly 'General' but, you know, like, whatever.

    Have fun.

    Anything at all, eh? Looks like I found the perfect contest for that 15 fusion fiesta I've been cooking up lately :sherlock:

    Ah.

    Looked at the announcement title and decided before clicking that nomatter the contest topic I would write for it... Problem here is that I can't look at a topic or genre and have the juices start flowing immediately. Good side, however, is that if I can sort some time out, I could use it as a trigger for any of the half-baked ideas currently sitting neglected somewhere on my hard drives.

    Blurgh. Overall, this could go very well, or terribly.

    It's two months, with holidays. Time shouldn't be the issue.

    /blushes.

    For the record, this is I hope a way to get back into fanfic, and thus continue HPAC.

    Anything, you say? Hmm...does Harry Potter have to be involved? I do have a crossover I've been meaning to dust off, which I ought to be able to do something with, but it's not HP related.

    Eh, I'm not really involved with the contest but I imagine it has to be HP-related. Might be interesting if it weren't though.

    I'll probably going to try to bang out the Azkaban story I didn't have time to write in October for this one. We shall see.

    I can understand that, but it's not like DLP doesn't have a lot of fanfic for other fandoms. I've got a couple of other bunnies that are HP connected (again, crossovers), but I'd actually have to take some time to develop those :p

    For a moment I thought "Free For All" meant 3-6 factions just having a huge FFA (of a war, a fight or just some political factions) going against each over, backstabbing each over and shit like that. Would have been awesome to have a contest like that.

    If you don't mind, I'd like to actually use this idea possibly. Are you planning on actually writing?

    Muahahah, bitches.

    Either Harry-turns-into-a-motorcycle (ala Ghost Rider but less Nick Cagey), DarkLord!Hagrid or Harry/fem!Snape is headed your way sometime in December.

    I might compete depending on how fast I can finish Thunderstorm.
