Hello, members! In the wake of our lovely fest (and before our next major event), we're hosting a general, low-pressure, Dark Lord-appreciating meme. Jump in with anything you want to add, and at the end, we'll construct a masterlist for easy navigation of the topics.
This meme will run through August.How to ParticipatePrompt threads
: Create a thread with an idea in it, as you would for a ficathon, and another participant (or participants) can respond by creating something for it. This idea could be for a drabble/fic, for art, for graphics - whatever you wish. Title your thread with "Prompt: [basic idea]"
Prompt: A Death Eater Halloween party
Character-appropriate costumes (Lucius Malfoy dressed as a peacock?), sadistic party games (for example, bobbing for dismembered Muggle bits and "pin the tail on the Wormtail"), and copious amounts of alcohol.
: Create a thread with a thought regarding Voldemort-related canon, fanon, history, et cetera, and other participants can respond to it with discussion of your idea. Title your thread with "Meta: [basic idea]"
Meta: Growing up during WWII
The Voldemort-as-Hitler analogies in Harry Potter aren't exactly discreet. Do you think Voldemort consciously took inspiration from Hitler? Do you think he considered Hitler an inspiration for his methods of purging, or would Tom have felt vulnerable, being a peculiar, magical, lower-class boy in England with few means of protection against Muggle weapons?
: Create a thread for sharing anything Voldemort-related that makes you excited. This can be anything that wasn't applicable to either of the other types of thread, such as an amazing piece of art or fic (or an artist or writer) you just NEED to rec, a collection of LV reaction gifs you've culled off tumblr for the last four years, your favourite Tom Riddle quotes... or anything else, really. Other participants can respond to it with sharing and discussion of the squee-related thing. Title your thread with "Squee: [basic idea]"
Squee: what's your favourite Voldemort pairing?
Tell me about your ships :D
- Feel free to post fic or art created for the prompts to your journal/tumblr/Ao3/whatever - just be sure it's in an unlocked post so we can enjoy it :)
- If you're posting something long (more than 200ish words, or with more than one image), please put it behind an LJ spoiler tag (please post the rating (G, PG, PG-13, R, or NC-17) and warnings.
- Be nice to people. If you disagree about something, by all means, have a civil (and even spirited) debate, but don't get malicious about it. Right? Right.
- Most importantly, have a good time!
