The week is over and the fest is now complete. We had an extraordinary 127 entries expressing love for 42 characters, including fics, poetry, art, meta, graphics, fancasts, letters, gifs, recs, podfics, quotes, six word stories, and general squee. It was wonderful to see the range of ways in which people showered their favourites with appreciation, and also the variety of characters chosen. Ron, Draco, Luna, Pansy, Severus and Neville were big favourites at the fest, but Trelawney, Dudley, Kreacher, Voldemort, Rodolphus and even Umbridge got themselves a little love, too.

A million thanks from [livejournal.com profile] capitu and myself to all those who contributed a post, and also to our lovely readers and commenters. Please snag yourself a thank you banner for your journal; you can find the code under the cut. The banner links to our masterlist so that people can click and have a look at your contributions. ♥

I wanted to sign off with an excerpt from [livejournal.com profile] smallbrownfrog's beautiful post about her feelings for Severus Snape, which I suspect many of us can identify with, whoever our favourite characters may be. For me, it summed up the passion that drove this fest.

At times I identify with him. At times I want to rescue him. Always he fascinates me. And yet I know where this story is going. [...]

There are so many of us who love him. Surely that will make a difference? Maybe if we write passionately enough, paint clearly enough, read deeply enough, the story will shift and something new will emerge?

Probably not.

But I'm foolish enough to keep trying.

Dear flist,

I recently made this little token of my love for a certain pointy git, over at the HP Character love fest. Never one to leave a good idea underutilised, I eagerly delved back into the tin - ugh, the tomato sauce! Glooping under my fingernails! Rootling around in the sloppy pasta to look for another 's'! And did you know, there are NO letter 'i's in a tin of alphabetti spaghetti? I was appalled. But it was worth it all to share a little love with my wonderful LJ friends.

Thank you for all the gorgeous fandom things we share together. You honestly brighten my life and I love you for it ♥

The HP Character Love Fest continues until Friday, with the updated masterlist of works here.

We've now got a ridiculous amount of love contributed - 86 entries have been left for 37 characters. Phew! The Slytherins have finally got the love they (probably don't) deserve, with Draco, Snape and Pansy currently our most popular characters with 6 entries a piece.

Some characters are still looking a bit lonely. I'd love to see more entries for Hermione and Remus, while Kreecher, Professor Sprout, and Kingsley have yet to receive any love. *sniff* What about the least loveable of all? Is anyone prepared to take up the challenge of loving Dolores Umbridge? Uncle Vernon? Surely DUDLEY could use a little bit of love from somebody?

Remember the fest runs until Valentines Day, so there is plenty of time to drop in with any kind of post you like: recs, quotes or general comments are just as welcome as things like fic and art, and contributions do NOT need to be fluffy in order to express your love.

It's definitely worth another look at the fest if you have not been over there for a few days. New highlights include three fics, two artworks and an art rec post for Pansy Parkinson, and lots of Snapely admiration, for instance this stunning essay on Severus Snape, packed with art links by [livejournal.com profile] perverse_idyll. I hope you find something to enjoy.

Title: Luna Lovegood's Noisy Nifflers Nursery School
Author: [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore
Word count: ~ 900
Rating: PG
Characters: Luna, various Next Gen kids. Draco is also a feature although he does not actually appear :D
A/N: Inspired by [livejournal.com profile] raitala's fic, Those Are Pearls, where Draco mentions his decision to send Scorpius to Luna's nursery school. The prospect of Luna in charge of a bunch of pre-schoolers was irresistible. However, this is also an homage to Joyce Grenfell's fabulous George, Don't Do That monologues, which are huge favourites of mine. You might find Luna's character here is more influenced by Joyce Grenfell's determinedly cheerful, beleaguered nursery teacher, than by canon. Unbetaed.

We now have a MASTERLIST at the Love Fest!

Some statistics:

So far, 41 expressions of love have been left for 24 characters. We have fic, art, banners, graphics, poetry, love letters, excerpts, photos and general meta.

RON is getting the most love so far (yay!), followed by DRACO and NEVILLE. Some characters are tragically languishing loveless, including SEVERUS SNAPE, MINERVA MCGONAGALL, PANSY, REMUS LUPIN and VOLDEMORT. Contributions need not be fluffy! All genres, all ratings, and all pairings are welcome.

Just to let you know, you can leave any sort of fanwork, fic, art, recs, quotes, photos, or just leave a couple of thoughts about a character you love. All are appreciated. The fest runs until Valentines Day, so if you feel inspired, please join us.

I have enjoyed everything so far, but here are two special teasers to tempt you to come and look, if you haven't already:

Funny and pretty things... )

Finally, a scary insight into Mr Birds' mind. While I was tidying things up at the fest this morning, I messaged Mr Birds, who was downstairs, to say: Please can you stop the kids coming up every 5 mins? I'm masterlisting and it's taking forever.

There was a long silence before he answered, but I was happy, because the kids stopped coming and asking for stuff. Then I got a message back: I thought you said, don't let the kids come up because I'm masturbating and it's taking forever.

O_O

I'll keep this updated as regularly as I can! Please do leave our contributors a few words of appreciation if you can, and feel free to add your own fanworks or thoughts about characters.

Just to let you know, I am not linking to brief thoughts or comments about characters, but these are definitely welcome and very much appreciated at the fest! You can leave, or find, these general comments on each character's thread, listed alphabetically in the fest intro post.

I'm getting EXCITED for the Character Love fest. So tell me, which characters do you want to see getting lots of love? Anyone will be able to start a thread for whatever characters they like, once the fest is going, but I want to start some off, as well, to give people ideas, and to get the love juices flowing.

Please comment with who you'd most like to see a thread for at the Love Fest - this doesn't commit you to posting anything on that thread, of course. Maybe give me your top 5. Hmm, tricky, isn't it? You can choose any character, from any era - as long as they appear somewhere in the Harry Potter series, they qualify to receive love. They don't even have to be human. O_o And remember Death Eaters need love, too (especially pointy ones).
