2016 Next Gen Fest Reveals!  
The time has finally come for reveals!

Thank you so very much to everyone who has made this fest such an amazing success! Once again I was so pleased and impressed with the overwhelming enthusiasm you all have for our favorite Next Gen characters. Everyone who submitted stories and art, and those who read, reviewed and recced: You guys are just the absolute best!

It's been really great seeing everybody's fantastic creations, and I hope you all enjoyed the fest as much as I did!

Without further ado, here's a list of all the amazing participants who worked so hard to create fabulous things for this year's hp_nextgen_fest!


anemonen drew It's taken me so long [Albus Severus/Scorpius | G]
Albus has been having feelings for his best friend, Scorpius, for ages, and the end of their last Hogwarts year feels like a time limit to tell him.

prayer_at_night drew The Temptress [Blaise/Rose | PG]
Blaise was truly trying to behave for once, but his new secretary made it increasingly hard for him.

digthewriter drew 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.

8c drew Triplicities [Albus Severus/Scorpius | G]
An after class moment.

shiftylinguini drew 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.

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

8c drew Siblings, a Retrospective [Hugo & Rose Gen | G]
Some choice moments in Rose and Hugo's relationship throughout the years.


writcraft wrote 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?


shiftylinguini wrote Team Players [James Sirius/Teddy & James Sirius/Oliver | NC-17]
Everyone has that one celebrity they’d move heaven and earth to get between their legs, and James Potter is no exception. He just never anticipated that number one on his Freebie List would end up in the same room as him, let alone would make the first move. But lucky for James, Teddy is a team player―well, he probably is, especially with what James is suggesting.

mollywheezy wrote A Day With the Dozen [GEN | PG]
All of Molly and Arthur's grandchildren spend the day with them at the Burrow, with only a few small problems.

cabinetcaligari wrote Villa Zabini [Albus Severus/Blaise | R]
Scorpius and Albus travel through Italy to celebrate leaving Hogwarts. They visit the Malfoy’s family friend, Blaise Zabini. However, when Scorpius leaves after only a day, Albus stays behind.

gracerene wrote What You Wish For [Albus Severus/Scorpius | NC-17]
Scorpius has been in love with James Sirius Potter for years to no avail, but that's all about to change, with a little help from a totally legal wish-fulfillment ritual. Now he just needs to get Albus on board with his plan, because Scorpius may be in love with James, but it's Albus he can't live without. Which is a completely normal thought to have about your best mate, right

lash_larue wrote Teach Me [Lily Luna/Pansy | NC-17]
Lily took the job to learn, Pansy learned the joy of teaching.

iamisaac wrote Touch Me With Your Gaze [Albus Severus/James Sirius | NC-17]
It's only wrong if they touch.

_melodic_ wrote Give Me Envy, Give Me Malice, Give Me Your Attention [Albus Severus/Scorpius | NC-17]
Scorpius finally steels the nerve to confess his feelings to Albus only to be rejected. When he seeks comfort with Albus’s amiable family, Scorpius finds that meaningless sex does little to mend a broken heart.

nia_kantorka wrote In Debauchery [Draco/Harry/Hugo | NC-17]
You have wanted Harry for as long as you could remember. You don’t even mind that Harry got himself a lover. Draco Malfoy is quite exquisite after all. When they want to hook up with you to add some zest to their relationship, you think that’s what paradise must be like.

iamisaac wrote Omega [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
When James Sirius Potter unexpectedly presents as an Omega, two months after his seventeenth birthday, his life is uprooted. From being one of the most admired young men at Hogwarts, he is now the most despised. For as ‘everybody’ knows, Omegas are the lowest of the low, only good for sex and babies...

daddyshiro wrote 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.

paopu_parachute wrote 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.

aelys_althea wrote 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.

leontinabowie wrote 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.

cabinetcaligari wrote 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.

thenewlondoner wrote 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.

ely_baby wrote 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.

wandaholloway wrote 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.

my_thestral wrote 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.

candamira wrote 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.

realmer06 wrote Pawn to C3 [Ron & Lily 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.

articcat621 wrote A Mutual Understanding [Hermione/Louis | NC-17]
Louis' veela gene finally comes forward.

maccadole wrote (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?

ayebydan wrote Families of Blood and Water [Teddy & Delphini 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?

redblonde7 wrote 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.

aelys_althea wrote 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?
