*Challenge* [Mar. 24th, 2004|08:11 pm]


[mood |bouncybouncy]

OK, hi peeps! ^_^

First, w00t! So many lovely people have joined in so little time! Squee...!

*cough* Anyway, I thought I'd kick things off with a challenge scandalous_chib and I dreamt up the other day.

It's just a broad idea for a timezone for fics, and you could hone in on any aspect.

We thought during the 1800s, when there was a LOT going on all over the world, would be a nice place to set lots of fics etc. We honed in on drag!Harry at a formal ball for some reason, but y'all can pick any aspect you like. Jack the Ripper's always fascinating.... ^_~

Anyway, fics can be any length, rating, pairing, etc, and art is of course always welcome!

Feel free to post non-challenge fics and discussion here too, of course, but I just wanted to see what everyone got for this one. ^_^

Ooooh, how lovely.

I've often wished for a true-AU community, so thank you for starting it.

My 1800s HP AU fic is a little long to be posted to LJ, but I can explain it here.

I'm Malfoi, by the way, and my fic is Facade, available at Schnoogle. It's a little old, but hopefully some people on here have heard of it. It's H/D, set in Jane Austen's early 19th century (1800s).

Actually, I have. It's on my reading list; I've started it (I think). Must go finish. ^_^

Oh, and you should put a post with the link etc so everyone can go check it out!

Actually, a 1800 century fic has been sitting around my head for a long long time. I actually have research, but I'm too lazy, really to do anything. Lol =)

And I just joined. ^^

Hello Ladies and all

I am not a writer, but as a reader and a fan of Au's, I look forward to any tales that may be posted or linked here. For stories that may be too long for LJ, how about links on other sites? Or split the story up into smaller bits?

Now as a possible challenge/scenario, How about Draco/Harry meeting/attending Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee Ball? Late 1800's with much pomp and ceremony.
