I am going to use the Force here: You did notice that I missed a check-in for yesterday. *waves hand* There. Now! Let us continue. I will be your host for the rest of this month, and I look forward to ending September on a high note. What have you been doing today?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

And a silly question to start things off: Do you do hand exercises at your keyboard before (or after) writing?

It's time to sign up for the October WIP challenge!

Some people join the challenge midmonth, or comment on check-in posts without signing up, which is fine -- I'm glad there's a way for the challenge to be useful in a variety of ways.

But for those of you who find the commitment of signing up useful, please leave a comment with the below information.

Signups will be open until the end of September.

  • Level of challenge: 1 chapter, 1000 words, 1 fic finished, whatever you like
  • Fandom(s) involved: if you know at this point
  • What you're looking for from the challenge: this could be as vague or specific as you like: someone to be accountable to, someone to remind you to write, someone to bounce ideas off, etc.
  • What you could offer other participants yourself: ditto!
  • How people should contact you: DW message, e-mail, IM etc.
  • Time zone: useful for seeing who might be up for a writing session at a time convenient to you

Copypaste below:

I couldn't continue to run this challenge without assistance with the daily check-in posts. Many thanks to everyone who's helped with the check-ins before!

Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping out. A week per person would be ideal (I usually assign weeks running Sunday-Saturday just for consistency). I'm happy to help come up with suggestions for discussion topics (& Friday or Saturday is usually the general chat/snippet/beta-seeking etc. post).

(& if you've completed a fic through the challenge, don't forget our collection on AO3! If you need AO3 invites, let me know.)

And if succeeding in his mission involves putting up with a naked, willing Albus Severus? Well, that's a price that Scorpius will just have to pay.

Title: In Another Dream
Author: Pharetra
Word Count: 1137 words complete
Alternate Links to Fic: haven't searched for any
Characters: Petunia Evans Dursley, Harry Potter, Dudley Dursley
Rating: PG
Author's Summary: Another way things could have been, in an infinite universe.

A Petunia who has gained maturity in the years her sister has been gone.

Author's Website: Fic-list at AO3, author's Tumblr
Why everyone should read this: If you love AUs as much as I do and want to see what would've happened if Petunia left Vernon when Harry was placed on their doorstep, this one-shot is for you. It features a Petunia who has grown a backbone and steps-up to raise Harry (and Dudders) properly as a final tribute to her sister instead of hiding him in the cupboard under the stairs.

On a chilly autumn eve, at a perfectly normal house in a perfectly normal street, a baby boy was placed on the doorstep in decidedly abnormal circumstances. A thin woman, baggy-eyed from caring for her own child, keeping the house, and arguing with her husband for hours, opened the front door to investigate several loud popping noises from outside. Seeing nothing, she was about to close the door with a sigh, when a small mewl coming from her feet made her pause. There, on the top step but hidden in the shadows, lay a crib in which slept a child which appeared a similar age to her own, with a sealed letter settled on the pale red blanket.

That night, Petunia cried for the loss of her younger sister in a war she did not understand, and the impending collapse of the marriage she had worked so hard to salvage. She wasn’t stupid; she knew that this new child, this final legacy of her dear sister, would be the straw to break an already fragile marital truce.

Beta Needed!

Posted by arden_flynn

Rating: PG-M?
Pairing/Gen: Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter
Need Help With: Spelling, Grammar, Plot flow and characterisation
Deadlines?: (turnaround time; when do you need the fic beta'd by?) It's for hp creature fest, so the ultimate deadline is 1st October. However, I would like it a day or two before at the latest.
Warnings/Contains: This will not be an explicit fic and I haven't planned exactly how 'smutty' it will get, but it will be somewhere between kissing and heavy petting.
Other Info: (any other information you'd like to let your beta know) I am still at the planning stage, but it will be only a oneshot- I'd say 20k at most. It includes some alternative magic and Haitian Vodou lore- no need to know anything about that though.
