There are just a few rules regarding submission:

• All stories MUST be beta-read.
• All stories MUST contain HTML coding. That means, if you want bolded, italicised or underlined text, you must put in the appropriate coding. I will not add that in for you.
• When your submission is complete, please email it to ngfestmods@gmail.com with the subject line: Submission, Username, Fic/Art, Prompt Number.

And just a reminder – this is an anonymous fest. So, please don't post anywhere else until after the reveal.

Here are the headers we'd like you to use on your fic/art.

HeadersCollapse )

Also, just an FYI that CLAIMING is still open. For those of you already creating something wonderful, after you submit your first piece, you are more than welcome to claim a second! :D

Please let us know if there are any mistakes or if we've forgotten to include anything in the headers!

Hello friends! It's been awhile!

This announcement for the 2018 run of hp_nextgen_fest is coming a bit later than usual, as life has been pretty crazy for your mods, and we weren't sure if we'd be able to run the fest this year during its usual slot. However, salvation came to us in the form of the lovely silveredglass, who's offered to help co-mod during this busy time of year. We hope you will all join us in welcoming her to the mod team! You can find this year's schedule below, along with a couple of changes for this year's fest.

2018 Schedule
Prompting: August 6-17
Claiming Opens: August 20
Works Due: October 22
Posting Starts: November 5
Reveals: November 30

A note on the changes...

We have created a Tumblr blog for this fest, and we plan to run the fest on both Livejournal and Tumblr. We will not be posting any fics, nor hosting any art, on Livejournal. All fic and art will be exclusively posted to AO3, with headers on both Livejournal and Tumblr linking to the works. For prompting and claiming, you will have the option to interact with Livejournal posts as has been traditionally done, or to prompt & claim via google form and bypassing Livejournal entirely.

This year, we will not be using Dreamwidth as anything other than a backup. The lack of scheduling ability unfortunately makes Dreamwidth an impossibility for us to functionally utilize it for fest moderation, and the interaction with our posts on dreamwidth last year was very low. Given our other commitments and responsibilities, it's just not the best use of our limited time. We are offering the Tumblr version in the hopes that those who have migrated away from Livejournal will feel more comfortable with an option that allows them to participate without interacting with Livejournal in any way. Of course, headers for your works will be posted to livejournal, in addition to tumblr, so we understand if that's still not something you're comfortable with. We have tried our best to make changes that will allow for greater participation, while keeping the workload at a reasonable level for us as mods. If the fest runs again next year, it's very likely that we'll be phasing out livejournal entirely.

Thank you for your understanding as we make these necessary modifications to the fest. We hope to see you all at the beginning of August for prompting! Keep an eye out for banners in the next several weeks!

<3 Grace, Linguini, & Silv

And that's a wrap! 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 27th. Plenty of time for everybody to catch up on reading, commenting, and reccing! :D

ART

Autumn Days [Albus Severus/Scorpius | G]
Al and Scorpius enjoying the autumn leaves.

2024+ [Padma/Rose | G]
Rose was not looking forward so much to yet another boring Ministry event, but it turned out to be... interesting.

FIC

Sardines [Albus Severus/Scorpius & James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
It’s bad enough his cock is hard from listening to the impromptu midnight pornography of his brother getting off; Albus is not going to add seeing it to the list of reasons why he lost his mind, and presumably his eyesight, on the eve of his grandmother's seventieth.

Scorpius, though, doesn’t appear to have any such qualms.


Bloody Brilliant Wedding [Lily Luna/Lysander | PG-13]
Lily loves weddings and Hugo hates them, but they both have new experiences at Molly’s wedding reception that may change their perception.

21st Century Medieval Romance [Hugo/Scorpius | PG-13]
Hugo, medieval history nerd extraordinaire, did not expect to see all around pompous git Scorpius Malfoy after Hogwarts at all, much less enrolled in the same course at university. So of course that’s exactly what happened.

Seeing and Being Seen. [Lucy & Scorpius | PG]
Lucy thinks that her secrets are well hidden and that no one notices her. But she's quite wrong about that.

The Centre Of Everything [James Sirius/Teddy | R]
The story of two boys growing up together – the story of a life.

True Colours [Harry/Teddy | NC-17]
Teddy spent the last year running away from his feelings for Harry. Now it’s time to come home.

Confessions to a Crush [Percy/Teddy | PG]
Teddy receives some advice on how to deal with his crush … from his crush himself.

Accidental Date [James Sirius/Scorpius | PG-13]
James and Scorpius have never spent an evening alone together, but after Albus, Dominique, Lily and even bloody Hugo has to cancel their pub plans, they’re stuck in each other's company. Now, Scorpius just needs to try not to enjoy it too much, and not make an idiot of himself in front of Albus’ big brother.

Endings and Beginnings [Hugo/Lily Luna & Rose/Scorpius | PG-13]
Ronald Weasley is dead. Now, Rose and Hugo have to come to terms with the loss of their father and with the fact that they haven't spoken to each other for the past seven years.
 
 
Title: Endings and Beginnings
Author: ely_baby
Prompt: G11 by greyeyesbluetoo
Pairing(s): Lily Luna Potter/Hugo Weasley, Scorpius Malfoy/Rose Weasley, James Sirius Potter/Polly Chapman, Teddy Lupin/Victoire Weasley, and all the canon ones.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~45,800
Content/Warnings: [Spoiler (click to open)]Non-explicit het cousincest. Major Character Death. Blink and you’ll miss Harry Potter and the Cursed Child references.
Summary: Ronald Weasley is dead. Now, Rose and Hugo have to come to terms with the loss of their father and with the fact that they haven't spoken to each other for the past seven years.
Author's Notes: I am sooooo rusty, and I am sooooo sorry for that. And despite that, obviously, the word count has skyrocketed as always with me. I just cannot stop blabbering, I’m afraid. I tried to stay true to the prompt, but I couldn’t find a valid reason for Rose and Hugo to feel some “proper sibling hate”. That was, until Lily came to my rescue. Thank you, Lily! Obviously, Hugo is so protective of her that he would go against his own family to be with her. So, yeah, what I’m trying to say is that the Lugo was a necessity here. There is no other reason for them to be together in this story. Nope. Certainly, it’s not because methinks this pairing is alright… A huge thank you to the Mods for being so supportive and patient with me. Thank you to my beta as well. Whoever you are.

Word Count: ~2,800

Summary: Lucy thinks that her secrets are well hidden and that no one notices her. But she's quite wrong about that.
Author's Notes: Thank you to the mods for running this fest. I meant for this fic to go in a whole different direction, but real life sort of mucked up everything. Why can't I just be paid to write fanfic? Adulting sucks. Lucy and Scorpius are not officially in a pairing in this fic. Friends/Coworkers/secret crushes etc etc and so on and so forth.

Author's Notes: I planned to write Lily/Lysander AND Rose/Scorpius as my prompter requested, but Rose and Scorpius would NOT cooperate. Then Hugo pitched a fit that it was unfair his sister has a dozen stories by me and he didn't even have one, so he insisted on joining the fun. ;)

We've just finished our second week of posting over 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

(Just know that) I want you back [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG]
Of course Al wanted him back. His nervousness from just moments earlier suddenly seemed impossibly silly.

ART + FIC

INKED [Albus Severus/Draco | NC-17]
After decades of soul searching, Draco has finally found peace as a renowned magical tattoo artist. His careful life is about to be upended, however, when he’s saddled with a rebellious and all-too-tempting apprentice.

FIC

A Molly Weasley Tradition [Molly & Molly II Gen | G]
Knitting Christmas jumpers is a Molly Weasley tradition, and not one either of them intend to give up.

You’re the One [James Sirius/Teddy | R]
James is a good boy who wears bowties and listens to Buddy Holly, while Teddy is tattooed and pierced and plays in a punk band. As James starts to spend more time with Teddy he realises just how much trouble Teddy is in, and desperately tries to help him while falling harder and harder for his best friend.

Draco Malfoy's Humiliating Mistake [James Sirius/Scorpius | NC-17]
If there is one thing that Draco Malfoy really dislikes, it is to be humiliated. And if in addition, the person witnessing the ordeal is Harry bloody Potter, that is definitely enough to leave the Slytherin dizzy with anger. Only, Scorpius happens to be involved, too, and when it comes to the Malfoy heir, Draco has a terrible soft spot. Which is the only reason that the blond doesn't actually end up killing Potter. Naturally.

A Slave To Your Love [Hermione/Teddy | R]
They both knew that it should stop.

Adventure in a Club Cubicle [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
Teddy has figured out James’s secret turn-on.

Cross my Heart [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG]
It was tradition; every year, Albus and Scorpius would go to school's balls together. Girls never wanted to go with Scorpius, and they all wanted to go with Albus. This way, Albus doesn't have to pick, and Scorpius doesn't stay locked in his dormitory. This year, however, something has changed. Albus' new girlfriend wants them to go together, as couples do, and Scorpius' feelings for Albus, which have been brewing for a while, complicates their friendship further.

Beneath the Radiance of the Infinite Sky [Potter Family Gen | G]
Summers at the Potter's cottage had a kind of magic all their own.

On Balance [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
Teddy’s always been able to fix whatever was wrong with James – until now.
He can’t fix it, but maybe together, they can learn to balance.


Unbreakable [Albus Severus/Hugo | NC-17]
Al's fascination with Hugo goes back to the day he was born and never waivers through all the childhood years they spend together, living in each other's pocket. For a boy like Al, who perpetually feels like a loser in a family, filled with over-achievers, Hugo's quiet confidence and unconditional affection feels like salvation. How could something so right possibly be wrong? Until Al slowly comes to realise that the world thinks what they have is too much and wrong. Can Al, not one up to much ruckus and conflict, stand up for what he wants in life?
 
 
11 November 2017 @ 08:00 am
Title: Unbreakable
Author: my_thestral
Prompt: Self-Prompt
Pairing(s): Hugo Weasley/Albus Potter
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 60,976
Content/Warnings: This story is entirely about cousincest and if that’s not your thing you might do well to skip this story. Mentions of past rape/non-con (not involving Hugo or Albus). Underage.
Summary: Al's fascination with Hugo goes back to the day he was born and never waivers through all the childhood years they spend together, living in each other's pocket. For a boy like Al, who perpetually feels like a loser in a family, filled with over-achievers, Hugo's quiet confidence and unconditional affection feels like salvation. How could something so right possibly be wrong? Until Al slowly comes to realise that the world thinks what they have is too much and wrong. Can Al, not one up to much ruckus and conflict, stand up for what he wants in life?
Author's Notes: This is for my dearest friend nia_kantorka as her super-belated, slightly crumpled birthday present that I promised her a million years ago in a Universe, far, far away… Happy much belated birthday, darling! As always, I hope the intent matters more than the actual present. And last but very much not least: my biggest thank you goes to my indispensable and super-fast betas B. and C. because this would probably be grammatical apocalypse without their dedication and their expert input!

Pairing(s): Albus Severus/Scorpius
Rating: PG
Art Medium: Digital
Content/Warnings: None
Summary: Of course Al wanted him back. His nervousness from just moments earlier suddenly seemed impossibly silly.
Artist's Notes: Dear prompter, this might not have been quite what you had in mind, but I hope you still like it! I really like this pairing, so I couldn't resist getting to draw them kissing a little. Title is from the song by HAIM.
