This is a community of challenges for writers of HP fanfic. Everybody's welcome to join. Whether you like HET, SLASH, or GEN, there's an archive at Amortentia.Org for you. I started this lj community to make for easier commmunication between fic writers and readers, and to gather lots of great fics to archive.
We do two things here: challenges and fests. The fests are broadly-themed free-for-alls. The challenges are more specfic, there's a different one for each archive(see below), and they will run for shorter times.
PLEASE NOTE: Any story submitted for the challenges here will be archived at Amortentia.Org.
Archive Info: Ruby Amor = HET Sapphire Amor = SLASH Emerald Amor = GEN
Rules: 1) You must be a member to post your story here on the lj. But if for whatever reason you can't sign up here, I'll accept and archive any submissions sent to email@example.com.
2) Please beta your stories before submitting them.
3) All stories submitted here must be posted using this template:

Also, please make the name of your story, the title of the post.

voting system: For each of the five categories listed below, the story can earn a maximum of five points. It is entirely up to you, the voter, how many (if any) of those points you award to a story here. When you've tallied your points, a golden star value can be applied (see below).
+5 Coherency (can the story be followed easily? also grammar)
+5 Word Use (when the author knows exactly which words will best get their point across. also spelling)
+5 Characterization (how well the author knows their characters, and how well they show it.)
+5 Style (the personal mark the author puts on a story.)
+5 Creativity (where the author dares to go with a story.) ___________ =25 possible points
golden star values: * = good (10-14) ** = great (15-19) *** = exceptional (20-24) **** = extraordinary (25) ***** = golden hall inductee (4 gold stars & reader's poll nominee with at least 100 votes.)
