A Christmas Cracker Fic Challenge

A Christmas Cracker Fic Challenge
 
 
Once again, the Mounted Empire is presenting a multi-group fic challenge. Authors may write Draco/Harry, Lucius/Harry, or Severus/Harry as they like, using the same outline. The more, the merrier, as long as Harry bottoms!
 
 
The challenge is due on Jan 1st, 2007. FYI-there will be *NO* extensions on this deadline. We have previously extended challenge deadlines per request to allow time for fics to be finished; but too often, no fics are turned in, despite our being told the author was almost finished. This throws off our timetable. We *love* having you enter and look forward to your participation; but it's important to get the fics in on time.
 
 
 
The challenge itself:
 
 
 
 
Write 12 drabbles of 100 words each for the 12 days leading up to Christmas, with the final one being set on Christmas day itself. The pieces may be related if you like, to form a continuous "story"; but they don't have to be. Make it clear that each piece is 12, 11, 10, 8, etc, days until Christmas.
 
 
 
 
Authors are required to use one of the following words in each drabble. You may use more than one in each if you like; but there must be *at least* one in *each* drabble.
 
 
In no particular order, the words are:
 
trimmed
melancholy
sparkling
unwrap
crisp
tinkling
tart
bored
minx
mistletoe
blistered
Merlot
sack
edible
 
 
 
We are no longer *requiring* an author have a beta reader, due to the difficulty it causes some of our potential authors. We do strongly urge you to have your fic betaed, as it *does* help; please ask for assistance, if you need help.
 
 
 
Please use the following header when posting your fics:

Also, please state that the fic is in response to The Mounted Empire's A Christmas Cracker Fic Challenge. Please do not post it elsewhere until the challenge is over; then you may post it where you like.

Lucius/Harry fics may be posted at their lj, located at:

and if you'd like to be the very first to post a fic at the brand spanking new Tom Riddle-Lord Voldemore/Harry lj, it's located at: http://community.livejournal.com/lvtops_hp/
 
 
 
 
Just make sure that Harry bottoms to whomever you choose, and post to the appropriate lj. If we get the new groups up in time for this, I'll pass along the addys.  
 
 
If you have any questions not answered in this outline, please ask Pestilence at realpestilence@yahoo.com , or at my lj located at http://realpestilence.livejournal.com (that's Goblin Market). I'll do my best to round up a solution for you. We hope you enjoy your new fic challenge and have fun with it. 

Now, everybody grab a Christmas Cracker and pull...!
 
There's surprises inside.
 
 
 
 
Sincerely,
 
The Horsewomen
