Seven Spells

Harry Potter Fanfiction Challenges

Anybody , Moderated

Welcome to 7spells, a friendly, low-pressure community for Harry Potter writers to develop their writing skills. This community was developed along the lines of the multitude of fanfic challenge communities out there, like fanfic100 and 30_kisses, only with one major difference: there are only seven prompts.

The reasons behind this are simple. Think of this as a community that allows you to get to know a character or pairing that you don't normally write, that interests you but you haven't fully explored the nuances of yet. Get out of your comfort zone! You may end up finding out that you have a secret passion for Ron/Millicent, or Theodore Nott's psyche is a deliciously twisted place. And if you don't like it, well, you only have to write seven fics.

So get out there and challenge yourself! This is fun! Really.

HP fanartists, be sure to check out our sister community 7hexes for the equivalent only with fanart!

; sign up
1. Choose a character, group of characters, pairing, threesome, etc.

2. To sign up, post a comment in this post with the character(s) you'd like, your LJ username, and, a link to your table (in your own journal or writing journal).

3. Create seven fanfics centered around the character(s) you've chosen, using the prompts listed here.
- you may not use an old fic, you have to write something new
- your fics may be anything from a 100 word drabble to an epic novel-length work
- you may post your fics all at once, one at a time, in chunks, however you want.
; post fic
If you are posting directly to this community, please include your character(s) and title in somewhere in the subject line (e.g. FIC: The Moon's Gentle Whisper (Fenrir Greyback)).

Please use this format for the body of your post:
Word Count: (can be approximate)
Summary: (optional)
Author's Notes: (please include any warnings)

LJ-cut or link the fic. If there is no fic, your post will be deleted.
; rules and questions
Detailed rule information can be found here. This is also the post to comment on if you have any unanswered questions.

However, as a quick overview: This community is for Harry Potter-centric fanfiction only. Only one person can claim a character or pairing at a time. Once they have completed their set of seven, that character or pairing will be up for grabs again. You cannot use old fics that you have already written. Themes can be mixed and matched and don't have to be done in any particular order.
