1. My fellow First War enthusiasts, you've all seen that JKR has written an 800-word ficlet to auction off to charity, and that it deals with James Potter and Sirius Black a few years before Harry's birth?
And you've all worried, like snegurochka_leeand others, that this does not bode well for those of us who write in the First War era?
Use 800 words exactly, no more, no less, to tell us what happened in the years before Harry's birth. Plot, characters, and themes up to you. Deadline, midnight EST, Sunday, June 8. Voting on Monday, June 9, and Tuesday, June 10. Winner announced Wednesday, June 11, the day JKR's ficlet becomes public. Eternal internet fame awaits!
Write what you want. While you still can.
2. SIGN-UPS FOR lgbtq_recs CLOSE TOMORROW! Please drop by if you'd like to rec LGBTQ-themed books, movies, etc. in the month of June. Even if you don't want to rec anything, feel free to watch the community and assemble a summer reading/movie rental list!
