Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?): No Harry bashing, OOC, crack or D/G death.
Art prompt: N/A

18

Briefly describe what you'd like to receive in your fic: Ginny breaks up with Draco after a misunderstanding (I’m envisioning – don’t let this suggestion deter your own creativity – her seeing him with another woman and thinking that he’s cheating on her – but obviously not). After being apart (for however long you like) Draco decides that he’s going to win her back, despite all of her male relatives hating him for breaking her heart. I’d like to see a rebirth of their relationship.
The tone/mood of the fic: As realistic as possible. Just enough angst, fluff, etc. to feel like this could actually happen.
An element/line of dialogue/object you would specifically like in your fic: “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try one more time.” – Thomas A. Edison

Canon or AU? Canon, minus Epilogue
Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?): Hermione as a major character (she can be present, but cannot play a significant role); pure fluff; time travel (although the consideration of it by a character is alright); and unrealistic characters (i.e. super sappy Draco).

20

Briefly describe what you'd like to receive in your fic:
The tone/mood of the fic: Lighthearted, hopeful and maybe romantic. Try to keep it light on the angst if possible.

Preferred rating of the fic you want: Any (G – NC-17)
Canon or AU? Canon
Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?): Completely out of characterness for anyone you write about, mpreg in any character, infidelity in any character, hard kinks (light knife play and maybe blood play is okay if you go there, but please no watersports, scat) or out and out torture.
Art prompt: Yes
What kind of art would you like to receive? Atmospheric, perhaps something that would be a great prompt for me to write a story around. Something more realistic in appearance than anime.
Anything you specifically don’t want? Same as the fic deal breakers.

21

Briefly describe what you'd like to receive in your fic: I'd like a post-Hogwarts fic, no more than a few years out of Hogwarts. The main idea I'd like is that Draco and Ginny share some kind of secret in their past - any secret. It could be a romantic or non-romantic secret, it could be funny or very serious, it could be from a very long time ago when they were children, or it could be from more recent times. Just so long as it factors into the central conflict.
The tone/mood of the fic: I like a good balance between some lighthearted humor and some angsty drama.
An element/line of dialogue/object you would specifically like in your fic: I would like some other characters in the story besides just Draco and Ginny - how many or who is totally up to you.
Preferred rating of the fic you want: Any
Canon or AU? Canon, minus epilogue
Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?): No non-con, sexual violence, incest, or bestiality. No abused Draco or overly fluffy Draco. No weak Ginny. No extreme Harry-bashing. And no pregnancy.
Art prompt: N/A

22

Briefly describe what you'd like to receive in your fic: Far from home, Draco and Ginny wake up with no memory of their family background. (So they still remember basic things like the fact that they're wizards etc., just not who they are exactly). They recognize each other but have no idea what relation they are to each other.
The tone/mood of the fic: Up to the writer, though I do love humor mixed in with some gravity.
An element/line of dialogue/object you would specifically like in your fic:
Preferred rating of the fic you want: Any
Canon or AU? Canon, minus Epilogue.
Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?): ?): OOC-ness, non-con, Draco and Ginny being in a relationship with each other prior to the memory loss.
Art prompt: Yes, but fic preferred.
What kind of art would you like to receive? Any

23
Briefly describe what you'd like to receive in your fic: Draco schemes to get what he wants. Can be directly related to Ginny, or unrelated but inadvertently brings D/G together. Might be fun if one of his plans backfires halfway through (but he ultimately does get what he wants). Ginny may be completely oblivious to it (but must find out during the "final reveal"), or indulge in some "counter-scheming" of her own, or even be the one to initiate it. Other characters (e.g. Narcissa/Lucius/Blaise/Hermione) may participate in the scheme(s) or do their own nefarious plotting on the side, as long as Draco is the main mastermind/manipulator.
The tone/mood of the fic: Any, as long as D/G get a happy ending.
An element/line of dialogue/object you would specifically like in your fic: "That's definitely far too convoluted to actually work."
Also: not mandatory, but I always enjoy seeing Ron have an apoplectic fit due to D/G.
Preferred rating of the fic you want: Any, but D/G naughtiness appreciated.
Canon or AU? Canon if possible, minus epilogue.
Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?): Nothing that contradicts Ron/Hermione. No super-chummy Harry-and-Draco-as-best-friends (they can be civil towards each other though). Some Harry/Ginny is ok, as long as it's clear that Ginny is not in love with Harry, and Ginny breaks up with Harry by the end. No excessive Harry-bashing (feel free to make him the clueless git he can be at times, and you can definitely make him suffer a bit--I do enjoy seeing Draco "win" over Harry when it comes to Ginny!).
Art prompt: Yes, but a fic is preferred.
What kind of art would you like receive? Something dark that takes place during the war...maybe D/G on the run from Lucius/Voldemort?
Anything you specifically don’t want? No D/G death

24

Briefly describe what you'd like to receive in your fic: I would love to get a holiday type fic. It spans Christmas and New Years (maybe even Valentine's) where Ginny and Draco connect. Ginny is newly single, and doesn't want to go to the Burrow for the Holidays because Harry will be there, so she's a bit miserable, but moving on.
The tone/mood of the fic: A bit angsty in the beginning, but I want it to end with hope.
An element/line of dialogue/object you would specifically like in your fic: "Behind the power, the money, and the prestige, he's just lonely. We all are." Also I would love an appearance by Pansy as Ginny's best friend.
Preferred rating of the fic you want: Any, just don’t let smut overtake the plot.
Canon or AU? Canon, minus epilogue.
Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?): Rape
Art prompt: N/A
25

Briefly describe what you'd like to receive in your fic: Elevate the idea of 'sacrifice' in a most difficult manner. Draco and Ginny are characters that seemed to be quite set within their ways, and one of the ways I like to explore their interaction is to see something being given up for the sake of being together. The usual idea is family [Ginny's sake] and pride [Draco's sake], yet if someone could dig a little deeper, explore a little more in the element that would even possibly frighten the characters themselves, it would be excellent.
The tone/mood of the fic: Fear. The idea that something is going to cost to the point where they question if it’s worth it or not.
An element/line of dialogue/object you would specifically like in your fic: The element of risk. Something creative. Doesn't have to be death, either, nor does it have to be conventional. I'd love for someone to really get into the heads of Draco and Ginny and think of something that is at stake.
Preferred rating of the fic you want: I love the naughty.
Canon or AU? Either, but AU would be easier to explore and really break out of the Canon structure of the characters.
Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?): Cop Outs. Feel free to give any sort of proper ending, so long as it follows the tone. It can even be light-hearted i.e: Draco risks the secret of his life-long adoration for his pet plushy dragon in order to appeal to Ginny, whose blackmailing its revelation to Hogwarts if he doesn't go out with her
or dark i.e: Ginny risks her ties to magic and sacrifices it in order to become a Muggle in order to save Draco from a dire situation including the Dark Arts.
Art prompt: Yes
What kind of art would you like to receive? Hand drawn or digital works out, so long as the person really throws their back into it! Feel free to go all out!
26

Briefly describe what you'd like to receive in your fic:
The tone/mood of the fic: Fluffy and happy.
An element/line of dialogue/object you would specifically like in your fic: Bonus points if The Princess Bride shows up, also if you can work "Winter Wonderland" into it. And a ton of Weasley family.
Preferred rating of the fic you want: Slightly Naughty/Definitely Naughty
Canon or AU? Canon
Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?): Horror, really sad stuff, tragedy, character death, none of that warning stuff.
Art prompt: N/A

27
Briefly describe what you'd like to receive in your fic:
The tone/mood of the fic: Humorous
An element/line of dialogue/object you would specifically like in your fic: “Are you that poor that you can’t even pay attention?”
Preferred rating of the fic you want: Any
Canon or AU? Canon
Deal Breakers (anything you don't want?): No Drarry/Dramione side pairings
Art prompt: Yes, but a fic is preferred.

User scarletladyy referenced to your post from The Daily Snitch: Sunday 15th December! saying: [...] Challenges: has opened prompt picking [...]

Hi! Quick question.

Do you need to have signed up to pick a prompt? (I missed the sign up date)

Mihnn, yes you needed to have submitted a prompt in order to pick a prompt now. However, we will be making a notice soon about substitute writers, incase we have some people flake out on us. At that time, if you're still interested, you could sign up and join us that way. As of right now, a few authors haven't submitted their prompt choices. So we may need you, and others like you, to fill their shoes! :D

Crap, I didn't realize I needed to submit a prompt to pick on :X I would love to be a substitute writer though!

That's okay. And I'm glad you'd like to be a substitute writer as well! Keep a look out for our post about substitute writers!
