The rules post!

The Rules for the 2011 Creature Fest (borrowed heavily from the Rules post at 2010 Valentine Veela Fest and hd_career_fair, so thanks to the mods over there)

This fest for multiple pairings within the HP fandom. This year's fest will be anonymous, with a reveal after all the fic and art have posted. All fiction and art MUST be new and written/drawn specifically for this fest. It should NOT be posted anywhere else until after the Reveal, which will be at the end of February.

You can submit up to five prompts. Each prompt should include the following information:

Film: the film you would like your prompt based on
Creature: the creatures that must be included
Pairing: express what pairing if you have a preference, or gen fic if you'd rather
Era: specify whether you want a story/art be EWE, Epilogue-compliant or AU, or if that is left up to the writer/artist
Additions: list three items/concepts/words to include in the story
Scenario: what would you like to see happen?
Squicks: list things you really don’t want to see in this fic
Maximum Rating: G to NC-17 or leave that up to the writer/artist

Once claiming opens, prompt claims should be emailed to the mods at with your name and the number of the prompt you want.

Each prompt can be claimed twice – once for fic and once for art.

Each person can claim one prompt at a time, but you can come back and claim another prompt if you finish yours early.

Submissions should be emailed to the most on or (ideally) before the due date at
