Thank you so very much to everyone who has made this fest such an amazing success! I wasn't sure what the turnout would be when we restarted this fest after several years hiatus, and I have been completely blown away and overwhelmed by all of the awesome enthusiasm. Everyone who submitted stories and art, and those who read, reviewed and recced: You guys are just the absolute best!
It's been really wonderful getting to post everybody's creations and seeing so much fantastic support for our marvelous next gen; I hope you all enjoyed the fest as much as I did!
Without further ado, here's a list of all the gold star participants who worked so hard to create fabulous things for this year's hp_nextgen_fest!

8c drew The Frog Prince Remedy [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG]
Albus is a careless Slytherin that's popular with girls, Scorpius is a nerdy Ravenclaw that likes to keep to himself, they're paired together for the final transfiguration project, and Scorpius summarily thinks he's doomed.

James works at a coffeeshop and Scorpius stops by most days. James wants to get to know him.

When James shows up at the Leaky Cauldron looking for a job, Teddy tries to show him it’s bloody hard work running a pub. But he doesn’t expect James to be a natural at it, and he doesn’t realize James will attract all kinds of attention. And this presents a problem for Teddy; a huge problem.
katmarajade wrote Time After Time [Victoire/Teddy | PG-13]
Victoire returns home after ten years in Paris for her sister's wedding and runs into her ex-boyfriend Teddy. Spending time with him rekindles feelings she didn't even know she could have, and suddenly she starts to question where she belongs—and with whom.
huldrejenta wrote The Distance Home to You [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG-13]
Albus has invited Scorpius to join him on a Potter-Weasley trip to the countryside. Scorpius accepts, because surely he's able to go away with Albus without revealing his crush? He'll just have to keep his distance. It turns out to be anything but easy.
cabinetcaligari wrote Hot Chocolate [Draco/Hugo | NC-17]
Because, dear reader, the best way of disciplining an unruly pupil is fucking him pedagogically decent into the floorboards...
torino10154 wrote Masquerade [Albus Severus/James Sirius | NC-17]
It was one of those places, dark rooms filled with people looking for an anonymous fuck. But sometimes things don't stay anonymous.
gracerene wrote What I'm Waiting to Find [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]

writcraft wrote Blue is the Warmest Colour [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
James has fancied Teddy for as long as he can remember, but Teddy isn’t ready to settle down. James goes on a journey of self-discovery as he negotiates the pleasure and pain of first love, coming to terms with his parents’ separation and the struggle to come out to his dad.
realmer06 wrote A Lot to Learn [Lorcan & Lysander Gen | PG-13]
Lorcan and Lysander couldn’t be more different. Lorcan loves the fact that his parents are Magizoologists, and is thrilled to be accompanying them to the Amazon Rainforest to track down a legendary dark spirit. Lysander is . . . less enthused.

my_thestral wrote A little white lie [Hugo/Scorpius | NC-17]
Scorpius Malfoy didn’t actually mean to send his distinguished grandfather to St. Mungo’s with his tiny white lie. Er… no, not primarily anyway. But between that foul act and having his Quidditch World Cup tickets revoked, there’s room for a slightly insane redheaded hero, who could save the day… if only Scorpius dare ask it of him.

There was a summer when Lorcan Scamander, and so many others who might win fame, rode with the Harriers.
mindabbles wrote Coming Out Ahead [James Sirius/Teddy & Albus Severus/Scorpius | NC-17]
James and Scorpius need a big break. Albus needs Scorpius. Teddy wants James. Perhaps they'll all learn that you can't always get everything you want, but maybe if you're lucky, you can get some of what you need.
articcat621 wrote Taking Chances [Hermione/Scorpius | NC-17]
Hermione's attraction to her Senior Undersecretary is driving her insane. Scorpius, feeling the same way, decides to throw caution to the wind and asks her to dinner.
nia_kantorka wrote Al’s Fixation [Albus Severus/James Sirius | NC-17]

candamira wrote Dragon Days [Albus Severus/Scorpius | NC-17]
"Lethal light will bring on a new age of darkness. A new saviour will rise, fair and bright, though born from a family of black."

The last thing James was expecting to find on the annual family camping trip was a naked, wounded omega in the forest. Especially not when that omega was Scorpius Malfoy.
I hope to see you all next year!
