The Harry Potter Random Facts Fest

To promote the Harry Potter Random Facts Fest, cut and paste the code below into your journal.


The purpose of the Harry Potter Random Facts Fest is to encourage people to write 20 Random Facts Meme entries so that others may use those random facts as prompts for their own fan works. The fest runs from today through October; the master list will be posted on 1 November. The fest is open to anyone who journals at an LJ-based service. There is no limit to how many entries participants may submit during the fest, more than one writer may write about the same character, pairing, threesome, moresome, or not-so-inanimate object, and sign-ups are not required for participation.

Round One     Round Two     Round Three     Round Four     Round Five

Dear Participants!
If I'd been leaving an anonymous comment because I didn't journal here, I would have given my Dreamwidth or InsaneJournal name in addition to my entry's title and link. :)

Hi, there! I just found the notification for your comment (and a lot of others) in my spam folder. I don't know what the heck that's about, but I just wanted you to know that I wasn't ignoring you on purpose. I'll have your entry listed tomorrow. :)
