I'm happy to announce that darkwitches is returning this year for it's third round! There is one major change, and that's the style of the fest. The last two fests were exchange fests, however I think this time we'll try it as an anonymous prompt based fest.

As such, the timeline is as follows:

Prompting: 1st - 14th April
Claiming: 17th April
Submissions due: 1st July
Posting starts: 10th July

Rules and pimping banners will follow in the next few weeks. I really hope you'll join me for this year's fest!

It's a brand new fest focusing on the dark and angsty side of pairings with an age disparity, and they've just opened claiming! All pairings have a 10 year age disparity and there are loads of lovely prompts to choose from, so you should hope on over there and check them out!

Our lovely affiliate, hp_humpdrabbles, has announced Hump Madness 2014 and opened sign-ups!

hp_humpdrabbles presents Hump Madness 2014

It's a really fun and unique competition, sort of like a much larger LDWS, inspired by one word prompts allowing for a variety of characters and pairings :D If you like a good time, you should definitely check this out! :D

Our lovely affiliate, femmefest, is currently holding sign-ups for their 2014 fest!


Banner takes you straight to the sign-up page :) It's your last chance to take part, as sign-ups close tomorrow on Monday 20th January!

They are another of the very few femmeslash-centric fests for Harry Potter, so as femmeslash HP fans (and as they always produce absolutely wonderful fic and art), what are you waiting for?! Go and sign-up! :D

All good things come to an end, and this is the end of our second year of darkwitches. It's been another wonderful year with an even bigger variety of pairings, and the quality has been astounding.

So that's it, guys! With the gift posted earlier this evening, posting is now complete! Once again the quality of the gifts was amazing, and I think we had more variety this year, too.

The Master List will be posted on Sunday 15th December, so you have a few more days to catch up on everything you've missed :) The fest will remain anonymous until the Master List is posted, so if you're a participant, please don't reply to comments or post your gift anywhere else until then.

For a quick and easy way to see all the gifts posted this year, check out our round-ups:

Author's Notes: Thank you to Fairy for beta'ing this for me, for running this amazing fest and especially for not murdering me when I tell her I need just a little more time. You are amazing, bb <33 And to leontinabowie, I hope you enjoy this. It was definitely not the story I set out to tell, but it was the one that demanded to be told.
