So hey, flist. How's it going? It's after 4am here, and I should totally be in bed, but I am super curious about something.

So I was thinking recently about how much Valentines Day bores me (or Singles Awareness Day, as I prefer to call it), and how much I love dysfunctional fictional relationships.

And I was thinking what an awesome time Valentines Day would be for a mini (or full-sized?) ficathon thingy dedicated to dysfunctional pairings (Hatesex! Characters screaming at each other! Someone seducing someone else, and then being thoroughly unsatisfied with the result! Resentment! Jealously! Boredom! Rita/everybody!)

So I was wondering if anyone else enjoys dysfunctional fictional relationships as much as I do, and whether anyone would be interested in a ficathon like that that posted around Valentines Day?

Yes? No? Potatoes?

Harry Potter only, I think, because I'm not sure I have the experience for anything multi-fandom or enormous.

But yeah, 2 months, less than - maybe a month and 2 weeks?

I love enemy pairings and hate sex, so I'd definitely be interested in a ficathon like that! I'd be more likely to participate if there was no minimum word count, though.

Uh, that was supposed to mean that I love hate!sex, not that I hate sex. *headdesk*

I love this idea. Just fyi, hp_emofest already has a similar Valentine's Day exchange underway. Have you thought about hosting a casual comment ficathon with this theme? (i.e. people post simple prompts and writers/artists respond via comment--I know this isn't that common in the HP fandom, but I've enjoyed the format in other fandoms and it would be very low stress/pressure)

I would not be able to write or pinch hit, but would pimp it out as far and wide as possible :) :) :)

I'd be interested, but perhaps due after Valentines? I've already got quite a line up until then.

If you need advertising for it, feel free to hit me up at [livejournal.com profile] snape_ldws.

Rita/Umbridge, perhaps?

Oddly enough, I'm a romantic in real life, but I love to read and write about fucked up relationships, so I'm definitely in!

me too! lol. I don't get it. Maybe because happy 24/7 is boring to me.
I love the drama as long as I'm not in it. ;)

I am not a complicated person, so bring on the FUCK YEAH!

I would so be down for this. As long as someone else gives me a pairing to write and a prompt to work with. :B

Teehee. I just thought "V Day: Veritaserum Day -- the Real Day of Truth."

I'm not sure if I can write dysfunctional or make the deadline, but I'd definitely read and pimp and comment to this -- IMHO -- fitting and adequate testimony to V-Day.

I promise to read, comment, and pimp like mad. I'm dreadfully sorry I can't sign up, but my January month is hectic with RL work. It's just not reasonable to think I'll have the time.

I may write something for it, depending on my schedule. All I write is angst, so this is right up my alley lol
