Day 1 - October 31 - The moment (ish) when Lily and James Potter bit the dust 34 years ago! We're celebrating their noble, noble deaths for the sake of the wizarding world with prompts! Porn prompts, crack prompts, ship prompts, squid prompts--they're dead! They can't judge you! There's seven days to put as many prompts as you'd like on this post.
Day 8 - November 7 - Prompting ends, posting begins! You have 14 days to write, draw, and potentially diorama as many prompts as you can. Our AO3 Collection is now open and anonymous.
Day 19 - November 19 - This is the cut-off day for prompters to reply to any questions about their prompt. Unanswered questions are considered enthusiastic agreement.
Day 21 - November 21 - Last day of posting! All fills must be posted by 11:59 PM North American Mountain Time.
Day 22 - November 22 - Party time! You now have the option of unanoning in whatever manner you please. Our AO3 Collection is now unanon and will remain open.

For the purposes of this fest, the prompts themselves are considered warnings. If you have issues with this policy, we recommend either not participating or using Dreamwidth blocker.
MOST IMPORTANT RULE: Posting unanon will be deleted. This doesn't mean you aren't welcome here! If you'd like the content of your comment back, contact us at the MOD CALL post.

For Prompters and Readers

  1. Subject lines should include the series, characters and/or pairing you want. Feel free to be as descriptive as you'd like. Warnings aren't required, but they also aren't banned.
  2. You don't have to write or draw. It's anon, there's no IP-tracking, and we aren't going to stalk you.
  3. Do not comment on other people's prompts to try and change pairings or characters. Post your own version with the characters you want instead.
  4. If you fail to respond to a 'is this okay?' kind of question about any of your prompts by the 19th day, it'll be taken as an enthusiastic yes, no matter what the question is.
  5. There are no subject bans. You may prompt anything you want.
  6. If you don't want to answer any questions, say so. That will work as blanket permission for anything people might want to do with your prompt.

For Artists and Writers
  1. No claiming prompts, please, as multiple fills are welcome!
  2. Minimum wordcount per fill is 100 words.
  3. All content is allowed and all warnings are optional, but if you want to write or draw extreme kinks** for a prompt that doesn’t specifically request them, you have ask the prompter first.
  4. If the artist requests it, the mods will repost art fills as an embedded picture in a reply to their comment. NSFW art will be labelled as such in the subject line by re-posting mods. Art with underaged characters in porn situations will not be re-posted as an embed. Everything else is fair game.

** "extreme kinks" for the purposes of this exchange include but are not necessarily limited to: extreme underage, major character death, scat/watersports/emetophilia, extreme gore, and bestiality. Please use reasonable discretion, and ask a mod if you have any questions!

For Everyone

This is a Choose Not to Warn fest. At no point will any comment be deleted for failure to warn of its content in the subject lines. They will be deleted for rampaging dickery and failure to follow the rules.

Unanon comments will be deleted.
Attempts at policing other people's fun will be deleted.
Prompts posted after the end of the 7th day will be deleted.
Links to off-meme posts posted prior to end of the 21st day will be deleted.
Concerns are to be directed to the Admin post. If posted here, they will be deleted. Fills that have spectacularly failed to fulfill the prompt/been posted to the wrong spot will be screened. You can request a copy of your work at the Admin post.

The rules may change without warning in response to unforeseen circumstances, like us thinking of better ones.

Re: FILL: Charlie/Percy, Underage, Incest

Percy walks around like he’s on a tightrope, like the wrong breath will send him plummeting. It's like this every spring -- as exams near, he studies until he can't sit still a moment more, and then he paces the tower and seethes. It's anyone’s guess whether he’ll lash out or inwards.

Bill always said they should let him be, let him work things out on his own, but Bill’s been graduated two years now and Charlie was never one to let his siblings fall. The twins have each other, and little Ron and Ginny never really need anyone, but Percy has only his ambitions and his doubts.

So after practice Charlie sets down his broom, heads down into the Common Room and grabs Percy by the shoulder. “We’re going for a walk,” he says, and Percy splutters something about revision and impending failure but he follows, like always.

There’s a room on the seventh floor that one of the house elves told him about, where you walk past three times and it turns into anywhere you want. He takes a meandering route along the halls, so Percy doesn’t quite realize how many times they’ve walked the same stretch, and then pulls his brother in.

The possibilities are endless, but Charlie only ever needs an empty classroom, with a lock on the door.

When the lock clicks Percy slumps, a puppet with his strings dropped. He sits in a chair near the front of the classroom. “What’s this about, Charlie?” His fingers tap together when he gets like this, middle finger and thumb meeting again and again and again and there are worse ways to siphon off the tension.

Charlie sits cross-legged on the floor beside him and looks up. His brother’s thin and gangly, like Bill used to be. He’s going to be tall someday, Charlie can tell, but for now he’s just a narrow bundle of nerves behind thick-rimmed glasses. Charlie can’t help the urge to hold him together. “You’re driving half the tower crazy,” says Charlie. “You’ve got to tone it down.”

Percy rolls his eyes and scoots his chair back, the better to glare downwards. “Exams are important,” he says. “I can’t tone it down. I have to be prepared.”

You have to be prepared, he’s saying too, and there’s a real world out there where Charlie has to move beyond home and house and he isn’t sure he’s ready. He’s got plans and interviews and a Portkey to Romania if he wants it and there’s so much he doesn’t know, but he says anyway, “At this point, you either know it or you don’t. You’ll do better if you just relax the last few days.”

Percy gets that funny look in his eyes, a twist of his lips like he wants to say something but thinks better of it. Charlie reaches out a hand; Percy takes it, and slides down beside him. A bony shoulder up under his arm, a hand no longer shaking as it rests on his knee.

“You’re one to talk,” says Percy.

Of course he’s seen it, seen Charlie worrying about what comes next. Extra hours on the Quidditch pitch even though there’s nothing left to practice for. Percy’s perhaps the only one of his family who really gets him, and maybe that’s why Charlie lets him lean up, braced against Charlie’s knee and shoulder, to kiss behind his ear.

Charlie turns to face him, holds him still with a hand along his jaw. “You’re amazing, Percy” he says. “If you can just pull yourself together, you’ll be the best of us.”

Percy’s breath catches, blue eyes nearly glowing behind the glasses, and then his fingers tangle tight in Charlie’s hair. He drags him down into a messy kiss, and this is why Charlie’s looking at Romania. Because kissing his brother is the worst and best thing he’s ever done, because this has to end when he graduates, because he needs distance, because of pale skin over birdlike bones. Because of ink-stained fingers writing bruises into his shoulders.

Charlie doesn’t know what he’ll do next, but for now he knows this: he knows how to steady a boy on a tightrope.
