Prompts post...

Today's the day! Both the HBP movie and hbpchallenge are open!

I want to play! What do I do? For starters, leave a prompt or two in a comment to this post, to get us thinking about what we want to create. Already have an idea what you want to do? Get started--there's no "claiming" round in this game.

What kinds of prompts work? Any prompt you think might spark fanwork: fic, art, meta, icons, you name it. You can leave a single word or a pairing or a provocative comment or question:

Weasley Wizarding Wheezes gone wrong
Slughorn/Zabini/Snape threesome!
I'd love to see Snape's reaction when he first finds out Harry's using his Potions text
Anyone else cheering for Romilda Vane?

All genres of fanwork are welcome here: slash, het, gen, romance, crack, meta, AU, RPF. Fanworks don't have to be canon-compliant, just inspired by the movie or book.

Can a leave a prompt I think I might want to respond to, myself? Sure, so long as you don't mind if someone else responds to it, as well.

So more than one person can take each prompt, then? Definitely. Remember, this is not an exchange with assigned writers/artists and recipients. Folks may or may not create something based on your prompts. As a creator, you're free to use a prompt (acknowledging the source of your inspiration, of course!) or work from your own ideas.

All clear, everyone? (Feel free to ask a question over here if not.) Ready, set...

Er, don't look at me, I'm just lurking here for the fic. Ah, but everyone's welcome to leave a prompt--and who knows, you might inspire just the fic you want to read.


Deadline for prompt-leaving: midnight your time, Saturday, July 25.
Deadline for fanworks: midnight your time, Wednesday, July 29.

*** Remember to join the comm if you think there's any chance you want to create something yourself; I'll be posting f-locked instructions on how to used the sockpuppet to post your fic/art/etc. to the comm anonymously when you finish.***

Rosmerta's recovery from being placed under the Imperius Curse (Chapter 12, Silver and Opals) and her reaction to having been used by Death Eaters. Was it the first time?

Okay, so I went back to my "initial impressions" post from right after I finished reading HBP. Here are some prompt idea to come out of that:

* (Chapter 14) What if, instead of throwing a collective hissy-fit, either Harry or Hermione had explained the story of Dumbo's feather to Ron?

* What if Harry (or possibly Hermione) had recognized Snape's handwriting in the book?

* Did Lily know about Remus's "furry little problem"? If so, did she find out before or after she and James were married? Dating?

* can anyone come up with even a semi-reasonable explanation of why Hermione and Fleur both turned into utterly irritating caricatures in this book?! (sorry, they both drive me nuts in hbp!)

* If everyone's maths are correct (don't start...), McGonagall would have been about 2 years older than Tom Riddle. What are her memories of him? Might she have known him? Does she know that Tom Riddle = LV?

What was *really* going on with Tonks?

Personally, I think a great many of her scenes in HBP make the most sense if she's actually a death eater spy Polyjuiced as Tonks and trying to get information out of Harry. (Of course, DH pokes big holes in this idea, but I often find myself imagining that DH does not exist...)

I remember taking notes as I read HBP for the first time, and I was convinced Tonks was a polyjuiced Death Eater. Really bizarre!

Possible movie spoilers ahoy
Something to do with Slughorn and Tom Riddle. Did Riddle ever make Slughorn's wall of fame? When did Slughorn admit that Riddle was evile?

One of Harry and Ginny's sunlit days.

Harry's confrontation with Snape at the end from Snape's POV.

What's Neville up to while Harry's off chasing Horcruxes and pining after Ginny?

McGonagall's letter to Augusta regarding Neville's NEWT choices and the importance (or not) of Transfiguration versus Herbology.

Re: Possible movie spoilers ahoy
Oh, I do hope this means that they've kept the Minerva-says-she'll-write-to-Augusta scene in the movie. I was sure they would cut it, and it's one of my favorites.

From the book:

What made Narcissa head to Spinner's End without waiting for Bellatrix?
Jul. 16th, 2009 07:19 am (UTC)
I want to see more of the vampire Sanguini! (Slughorn's party, p. 295, UK hardbark edition.) I'd also like to know his relationship with his 'friend', Eldred Worple.
Jul. 21st, 2009 11:46 pm (UTC)
Not writing this, but yes, I would love to read this as well. :D

Remus, grieving Sirius (couple or not couple), not able to tell Harry how he feels. Tonks's attempts to be with him.

Ghosts! I'd love to see something about the ghosts of Sirius and James roaming Hogwarts after SB's death. Yeah, I know he went on and didn't stick around, but it's fun to wonder!
Jul. 17th, 2009 11:27 pm (UTC)
1. The thing I would most like to see is a sex scene with Harry on Felix Felicis. My preference would be for Harry/Snape but I think any pairing (Harry/Draco, Harry/Slughorn, Harry/Luna…) would be excellent, as long as Harry's feeling giddily confident about it all.
2. Harry/Slughorn dubcon. Could be porn or just a bit of creepy UST.
3. What did Snape think of Slughorn's Potions class when he was a pupil? What does he think of him as a teacher and as a colleague now?
4. After the destruction of their home, Arthur and Molly have to find another place to stay, maybe with Fred and George at their place behind the joke shop.
5. Angsty Dean realizing that Ginny is using him, possibly leading to not-angsty Dean/Seamus.
6. Leanne's POV when her friend Katie is cursed.
7. Snape and Draco following the Sectumsempra scene.

Both AU:
1. Tonks decides the relationship can’t work, perhaps falls in love with a woman of her age or twice Remus’s age and forgets to keep in touch with her ex-sweetheart as a friend either (while Remus is perhaps starving or something nice like that).
2. Luna is (not only the one who finds Harry on the train but also) the one who’s fallen in love with Remus.

Some book-based prompts
What, exactly, did young Tom Riddle do to those children in the cave?

Dumbledore goes to Azkaban to retrieve Morfin Gaunt's memories.

During Christmas, Fleur and Remus become friends.
Jul. 19th, 2009 02:48 am (UTC)
Lily and Snape, in Slughorn's class.

Bill telling his brothers he's getting married.

Draco and Myrtle.

(movie-based) McLaggen's detention after puking on Snape's shoes.

(movie-inspired) Draco's thoughts as he mends the vanishing cabinet.

Snape telling Dumbledore about the Unbreakable Vow.
Jul. 21st, 2009 10:30 pm (UTC)
Oh, I really like the idea of Bill telling his brothers he's getting married - not writing that one, but I hope someone does! :D

I've finally seen the movie. Had my usual mixed reactions -- loved some things, hated others, liked some of story changes, and others. . .not so much.

Movie prompts:
--take further the animosity or hostility or whatever it was that Remus showed toward Harry at the Burrow
--the Weasleys post-fire
--what's happening inside Bourgin and Burke's when the Trio watches from the nearby rooftop
--And why is Neville working as a waiter?

General prompts:
--inside Draco's head during part of this year
--the staff's reaction to Sluggie's return
--Dumbledore alone -- what does he think about late at night, sitting in his quarters with Fawkes?
Jul. 21st, 2009 04:07 am (UTC)
More prompt ideas!

The other Slytherins worry about Draco.

(movie) Harry, Ginny, and the kiss not staying in the Room of Requirement.

Remus, grieving Sirius.

I love your icon. :D
