Hello lovely Next Gen fans! I'm dropping by today with a couple of quick announcements.

1. hp_nextgen_fest will be returning for 2017! Hooray! More information will come closer to the prompting date, but in the meantime, here is the tentative schedule:

2017 Timeline:
Prompting: August 1-11th
Claiming Opens: August 14th
Works Due: October 16th
Posting Starts: October 30th

Dates may shift a smidge, as I'm in the process of planning a vacation in the October timeframe, and I'm not quite sure yet where it'll land. But if it has any affect, it would only shift things by a week or two, so you can could on this general schedule for planning purposes.

2. I am super excited to announce that a new mod will be joining us here at hp_nextgen_fest! I love this fest, but I was a little overwhelmed running it by myself last year, especially since the timeline overlaps with my other modly duties over at hd_erised. I didn't want to give up this fantastic fest though, so I'm beyond thrilled that the lovely shiftylinguini has offered to help co-mod hp_nextgen_fest and ensure it continues to run like a well-oiled fucking machine. The fest should run more or less the same as usual, but with less frantic hair pulling and wide-eyed panicking on my part behind the scenes. ;)

That's it from me for now, but I hope to see all of you this summer! Keep an eye out for more information as we get closer to August. :D

And that's all she wrote, folks; we've reached the end of this year's hp_nextgen_fest! ♥

There will be a complete anonymous masterlist going up tomorrow and reveals will happen on November 28th. Plenty of time for everybody to catch up on reading, commenting, and reccing! :D


ART

Hand-me-downs [James Sirius/Teddy | G]
Harry and Ginny have nothing against James wearing women's clothing. However, worrying it'll hurt his chances of being a professional Quidditch player, or that he'll be teased, they ask Teddy to have a chat with James about dressing appropriately—which Teddy is more than happy to do.

When in Rome [Albus Severus/Blaise | PG-13]
When Albus arrives in Rome, he meets an older man, and sparks fly.

Siblings, a Retrospective [Hugo & Rose Gen | G]
Some choice moments in Rose and Hugo's relationship throughout the years.


ART + FIC

The Way He Looks [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
His dad’s having a midlife crisis, he hates the job he doesn’t even have yet and he’s somehow managed to accidentally bond himself to the best mate he’s secretly in love with. Surely growing up shouldn’t be this difficult?


FIC

Black Skirt Down [Albus Severus/Scorpius | NC-17]
The girl turned around and looked straight at him. Green eyes. Not the common mossy, brown-sprinkled green, no. They were of a rare, pure green, clear like a mountain lake. Like Al's.

Pawn to C3 [GEN | PG]
Teaching Lily chess started as a way to keep her occupied and out of everyone’s hair. It grew into much more than that.

A Mutual Understanding [Hermione/Louis | NC-17]
Louis' veela gene finally comes forward.

(We’re Just) Different Colours [Albus Severus/Teddy | NC-17]
They both want someone they can’t have, so why not have a drink together and settle for second best?

Families of Blood and Water [GEN | PG-13]
Teddy wants to travel the world and needs cash to do that. In order to boost his bank balance he accepts guard duty at Azkaban for double pay. A few weeks after his start Delphini Riddle is sent to the Island. The thing is, Teddy has no idea who she is or anything that has happened in the life of his family. As far as he is concerned, everything is fine. Isn't it?

What You’ve Been Looking For [James Sirius/Scorpius | PG-13]
Scorpius was stressed enough with O.W.Ls this year, he didn’t need to be pining after James Potter as well. Especially when James Potter seemed to be trying to date every girl in school.

Plainly Beautiful [Albus Severus/Draco & Albus Severus/Scorpius | R]
Scorpius wanted. He wanted more than anything else in the world. Unfortunately, it was too late. Not the realisation – that came years ago – but acting upon it. Why had he been so foolish as to wait?

I had a lot of fun writing this fic – it was very angsty, a little pathetic, yes, but fun nonetheless – and I hope you like reading it too! I honestly think I could explore a novel-length book with this pair. They’re gorgeous XD Thanks to the mod for hosting this fest. It’s fantastic, and I’m so looking forward to seeing the submissions!

Title: Hand-me-downs
Artist: shiftylinguini
Prompt: #S38
Pairing(s): James Sirius/Teddy (or could be seen as Gen James and Teddy, really!)
Rating: G
Art Medium: Pencil
Content/Warnings: some well meaning but misguided parents, androgynous Teddy, genderfluid/genderqueer Teddy, cross dressing James, Quidditch player!James, hairy legs, and boots
Summary: Harry and Ginny have nothing against James wearing women's clothing. However, worrying it'll hurt his chances of being a professional Quidditch player, or that he'll be teased, they ask Teddy to have a chat with James about dressing appropriately—which Teddy is more than happy to do.

James, on the other hand, has a lot of things against giving up half his wardrobe because 'skirts aren't for boys, Jamie' and is beyond thrilled to find that Teddy a) doesn't give a stuff what he's wearing, and b) is roughly his size. After all, Teddy's hand-me-downs were always the best.
Artist's Notes: Thank you, prompter, for this lovely prompt! I really loved this prompt and the opportunity to try and depict a character who is genderqueer/genderfluid and androgynous, as well as looking at clothing and identities, and how those things are linked. I really hope I've managed to do justice to this scenario <3. Thanks as well to the mod for being marvelous!

Week two is wrapped up here at hp_nextgen_fest!

No worries, we've still got one last week of amazing submissions for you all to enjoy. In the meantime, here's a roundup for this past week so you can get all caught up over the weekend. Don't forget to leave some love on all of the awesome creations! :D

ART

A rose by any other name (would smell as sweet) [Trans!Rose/Scorpius | G]
"You're all right, kid," he says, and takes Scorpius's hand in his.

Triplicities [Albus Severus/Scorpius | G]
An after class moment.

FIC

Floriography [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG-13]
All Scorpius wants is to go with Albus to the Yule Ball, and everyone is aware of that, except Albus.

Creating a New Standard [Hugo GEN | G]
For Dominique's birthday, Hugo decides to make a big supper for his entire family at Shell Cottage.

The Sweetness of Forbidden Fruit [Albus Severus/Ron | NC-17]
Ron had a problem. A pretty big problem. But it was alright because he'd learnt to live with it and he could deal with it just fine. Except that when when others notice that problem they naturally want to help. How was it polite to say that you really, really didn't need that help?

In the end, it would only make things so much worse.


Accidentally in Love [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
James and Teddy are best friends and that’s all they’ll ever be. At least until James walks in on Teddy having sex, and suddenly having sex with Teddy is all he can think about.

Second Skin [Lorcan/Lysander | R]
People always say we’re attached at the hip, Lorcan and I. He feels like home to me, and I trust him more than anyone. But there are things even Lorcan cannot know.

It's a Big, Gay World Out There [James Sirius/Teddy | PG-13]
When James comes out, Teddy takes him out. Not like that, though. Really.

Dear Lily, Dear Hugo [Hugo/Lily | PG-13]
Lily and Hugo are getting married and Rose has thought up the best gift ever to give them.

Who's The Winner Now, Baby? [Albus Severus/Scorpius | NC-17]
Potters are known for their hate to lose. Malfoys are known for their love to win. Albus isn't sure what Scorpius has his mind set on, though.

Intervention [GEN | R]
There isn’t much to entertain an 11-year-old Scorpius Malfoy in his sheltered existence, other than secretly practising magic and listening to his father's daily rants about his working partner, a.k.a. "that colossal idiot” Weasley. But shortly before he embarks on his first year journey to Hogwarts, Scorpius stumbles upon his father's big secret that involves a certain someone his father has been pining for – and suddenly his father’s love life seems to call for emergency intervention. Now, what could an 11-year-old possibly do? Not much... but a bunch of 11-year-olds (or not quite) just might surprise you.
 
 
12 November 2016 @ 08:00 am
Title: Intervention
Author: my_thestral
Prompt: Self-prompt
Pairing(s): Scorpius Malfoy/Rose Weasley (future), Ron Weasley/Draco Malfoy
Rating: R
Word Count: 42,619
Content/Warnings: [Spoiler (click to open)]One single adult scene in an otherwise G-rated story, stumbling upon a parent having sex, a slightly deceitful ex-Death Eater, a bunch of plotting children (featuring a ginger evil-mastermind-in-the-making), a clueless Auror with self-esteem issues, an overly-long proposal, and at least one unhappy parent.
Summary: There isn’t much to entertain an 11-year-old Scorpius Malfoy in his sheltered existence, other than secretly practising magic and listening to his father's daily rants about his working partner, a.k.a. "that colossal idiot” Weasley. But shortly before he embarks on his first year journey to Hogwarts, Scorpius stumbles upon his father's big secret that involves a certain someone his father has been pining for – and suddenly his father’s love life seems to call for emergency intervention. Now, what could an 11-year-old possibly do? Not much... but a bunch of 11-year-olds (or not quite) just might surprise you.
Author's Notes: My sincere and overwhelming thank you to my irreplaceable beta B. - I’d possibly be kicked out of fandom if this saw the light of day in its original limpy form. This will probably not be everyone’s cookie because it’s hardly packed with action and sex, but I wanted to write this type of story for a long while, and here it is. It’s for all of you out there blessed with kids! :)

Hope you enjoy this silly little thing nonetheless. I enjoyed writing it for sure. Thank you to my fabulous beta for being fabulous.
