Prefect Writing Challenge June 2017
The Coming Out Challenge
DEADLINE: June 30, 2017
 


Happy Pride Month!!
In honor of the occasion, your neighborhood Prefects present the first of many upcoming bi-monthly writing challenges.
 
There are many wonderful things about this community, and one of them is the warmth and inclusiveness HPFT and its members show toward LGBTQ members and stories. Unfortunately, coming out is not easy, even in the best of circumstances.
 
Here’s the challenge:
Write a story under 10,000 words about someone coming out as queer.
 
Remember that queer identities and experiences are enormously diverse. Possible orientations/identities include (but are not limited to): gay, lesbian, bi, pansexual, poly, ace, aromantic, trans, genderqueer, questioning, and/or intersex. We encourage you to consider less written identities and scenarios in your fic.
 
All ratings, characters, eras, pairings, topics, and genres are permitted, as allowed by the HPFT archive rules. Any fandom is permitted, provided there is a Prefect familiar with the fandom. Please check in if you would like to write a fandom other than Harry Potter. Original fiction is permitted.
 
To enter, please post here as a taker or maybe.
 
RULES
1. Must comply with HPFT’s TOS and ratings rules.
2. To enter, reply to this topic with taker/maybe.
3. May not be prewritten.
4. May be combined with other challenges
5. One entry per person
6. In order to support our growing archive, stories must be posted on HPFT. They can also be cross-posted elsewhere, of course. Please mention the challenge somewhere in the story summary and indicate it as a challenge entry in the story info.
7. Stories must be submitted by the deadline, and the link posted in this thread. If your story is still in the queue on the deadline, PM Diogenissa or MuggleMaybe.
8. Staff and Prefects NOT participating in scoring are welcome to enter :)
 
A Prefect will review your entry.
 
* PRIZES *
1st Place: Featured Story on the archives for one month, 3 reviews, and a pic spam
2nd Place: 3 reviews and a pic spam
3rd Place: 2 reviews and a pic spam
 
All participants who enter a story will receive a graphic.
 
As with all challenges, all participants who enter a story will earn 5 house points. Placing entries will win additional house points.
 
As a special Prefect Challenge bonus, houses showing particular enthusiasm may earn extra points! ;)
 
Have fun writing!

Well this is sort of perfect.   I am going to go a Dean Thomas/Seamus Finnegan or a Dean Thomas/Anthony Goldstien pairing.   

Question: Because I ask dumb questions.   Can only prefects participate in a prefects challenge?

I am a taker.

Anyone can participate! It's named a Prefects' Challenge because the Prefects are collectively hosting it. :)

I'd like to be a strong maybe for this challenge, but before I start writing anything - does the story have to focus on the first time that someone comes out to anyone? Because obviously people often come out to different people at different times and I'm just wondering if any of those scenarios are okay to write about?

Edit: should the story be written from the perspective of the person coming out, or can it be written from the perspective of the person they're coming out to? (I'm leaning towards the former anyway but I have a bunch of ideas and just want to check)

Good questions, Sian! It does not need to be the first time they come out to anyone. And I think the POV can be a different character, if you prefer. As long as coming out is central, you should be fine. :)

YES PRIDE! And remember that short fics are absolutely okay for this.

Julie, I'm putting you down as a taker. :)
