In the past month I have joined two very interesting, new communities that I think deserve a little introduction. amutualslurping
is a Remus/Sirius community born of shoebox_project
. All Puppy fics are welcome, but the mods are also serious Shoeboxers! They also welcome Shoebox fanfic (so, if you're keeping track that would be fanfic of a fanfic). Authors must submit a writing sample in order to be accepted to the community, so they are trying to keep the content above board. They are currently running their very first challenge "Oh-So Sweet: The Candy Challenge" through mid-October. I'm thinking there are several potential members *cough* reading this right now. Submit a fic to join! It will be so fun!! magic_carrousel
is strictly a challenge community. Be inspired by what started it all
- each month the mod provides prompts in the form of text and dialog directly from the Harry Potter books. Entries must use any of the prompts in their original fics in any context. Fics can be any length, rating, or style. The September challenge is going on now and some of the prompts are really interesting. (No, I'm not partial because Silence
won for the Saddest entry in August!)
I don't pimp much, but since these are both relatively new communities I thought I would throw in a good word. So check them out. Now. Go. Do it!
