Witchwinter 2007-2008

While I would like there to be another Witchwinter this year, I am concerned about hosting it on Livejournal with the current climate. I would like to host it on Livejournal as usual, but I do not want to put the participants in danger. I also do not want to limit the fest to G-rated material, and I no longer trust that such material would be entirely safe, even if we did. There is no telling what will fall under "Questionable Content". I am considering hosting it on InsaneJournal, and I've reserved the community there in case it comes to that.

If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to leave a comment or email the mods at witchwinter@gmail.com. We would love to have feedback from past participants and watchers. There will be another post here when we decide what to do. :)

Waffling Thanks and Masterlist

I think it's fair to say that witchwinter was epic this year. Many thanks are owed, to pinch-hitters, co-mods, and to several of you who volunteered to help in other capacities.

__hibiscus, kiana, inell, and geewhiz -- thank you for all that you did, be it helping to arrange assignments, emailing participants, lending webspace, or designing graphics! *_* I'm pretty in love with my co-mods, and especially geewhiz, for going above and beyond what was asked of her. This fest would have never run its course had it not been for her. ♥

The pinch-hitters -- charlotteschaos, ragdoll, __hibiscus, corvidae9, twilightsorcery, anjenue, krystal_moon, kinky_kneazle, violetfishy, nutnatz... You have no idea how grateful we are to you. ♥

Finally, thank you to all of you who offered us help. <3 We could not have asked for a nicer group of femslash festers. :D There was a lot of amazing work done this year (I am seriously still reeling from the talent *_*), so I'll stop my rambling and get on to the good stuff. ♥

MasterlistCollapse )

And that's all, folks! Thanks again, for being such an awesome group. ♥

Fic: "A Good Indication" for ireneadler

posted by: winterwitches in witchwinter

Happy witchwinter, ireneadler!

Title: A Good Indication
Author: ?
Recipient: ireneadler
Rating: R
Pairing: Ginny/Luna
Word Count: ~4600
Summary: Ginny's best friend will always be there for her.
Author's Note: Said ireneadler: "I have a huge pregnancy kink, so anything with that is love, especially within a long-term relationship. Plot=excellent. Lately I've become interested in relationships that are a bit ambiguous--are they friends? Are they lovers? Where is the line? (For a bit of context, I just saw an amazing performance of Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida, and the Achilles/Patroclus dynamic blew me away.) I enjoy fluff, although angst is fine too if it's not too dark." Hope this works! Happy witchwinter!

A Good IndicationCollapse )
