We are a community that celebrates Harry Potter characters above the age of 50.


If you like a little silver around the temples, a softness around the belly, the wisdom (and sometimes stubborness!) that comes with experience and age, and the wrinkles too, this is the place for you!

Any characters/pairings that satisfy the age requirement are permitted. Whether they appeared 50+ in canon or not, as long as they meet the age requirements in your fanworks, they are welcome here! Sirius Black at 100, Hermione Granger at 75 or Albus Dumbledore at 50—just to name a few!

We welcome multiple pairings, moresomes, het, slash, femslash, or gen. Crossovers, premature aging, AU/AR? Bring it on! We welcome cross-generational relationships as well. We love cross-gen! But please note the younger party must satisfy the age requirement as well. For example, with the pairing of Minerva McGonagall/Severus Snape, Severus must be at least 50. If your fanwork focuses on Sirius/Harry or Charlie/Draco or Poppy/Hermione the same rules apply: both characters must be 50+.

Now that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is beginning to die down, you might be looking at your calendar and wondering just what to do during these dark, cold months (or long, hot ones as the case may be).

Look no further than our Salt and Pepper Fest!

Banner announcing that claiming is open in the Salt and Pepper Fest 2019

There are still six weeks left until the due date. Plenty of time to select a prompt and create an entry focusing on life after fifty.

You can find the sign-ups and available prompts here! General fest information and rules can be found here.

We hope you'll join us! :)

P.S. Today is [personal profile] sdk's birthday and I know there's nothing she'd like more as a gift than for you to sign up for the fest. ;)

Before rolling around in all of the holiday fest delights in December, why not check out the sign-ups for the Salt and Pepper Fest? You can find them and the available prompts right here! General fest information and rules can be found here.

Banner announcing that claiming is open in the Salt and Pepper Fest 2019

Before you sign-up, please read the rules and guidelines for this fest here.

Ready? Okay!

A few quick things:

1 - Prompts can be claimed once for Fic and once for Art and are first come, first served. We will indicate as soon as possible if a prompt has been claimed for either fic or art and strikethrough it if it's been claimed for both.
2 - We will email you as soon as possible to confirm you got the prompt you wanted (or your second choice if your first was already snagged, etc.) so please sign-up with an email address you check regularly.
3 - The prompts were placed in the category where they seemed to fit best but please check out all three as some could have fit into more than one section.
4 - Remember, your creation is not a gift, so if you stray a little from the prompt, want to substitute in a different character or a pairing, that's perfectly fine.
5 - Conversely, if none of the prompts strike your fancy, but you still want to participate, you may sign up to create your own idea! You may also use any unclaimed prompts from previous years.
6 - Sign-ups via proxy are allowed.

Sign-up Form

To sign up, fill out the following in a comment below. Comments are screened as this is an anon fest! :D

Please make sure you indicate which prompt you are claiming by letter and number.

PROMPTING FOR THE SALT AND PEPPER FEST IS OPEN CLOSED!

Before you run off to leave us all your fab prompts, please check out the general rules for this fest and the prompting guidelines below!

Prompt Guidelines

1. Anyone can leave a prompt regardless of whether or not you're planning on claiming one. Submitting a prompt doesn't commit you to anything.

2. You can leave up to seven prompts. Prompts can be in the same comment or listed separately.

3. Prompts must be relevant to the theme of this community - any canon character at 50+. (i.e. a prompt focusing on Harry as a young parent would not fit.)

4. That said, we want all sorts of prompts! Fluffy, angsty, light or dark, gen, slash, femslash, het, threesome/moresome, character studies, mysteries, drama, comedy--anything goes!

5. Keep in mind that this is not a gift exchange. Your name will not be listed with your prompt in the claiming stage or when the fest is posting. Claimers will also be able to deviate from the prompt if their muse goes in a different direction (switch out characters, go with a different overall tone, etc.)

6. Prompts may be edited for clarity.

7. Prompting is open now until the end of Saturday, Nov 17th (midnight, EST). We'll edit this post when prompting is closed.


Prompt Form

Leave your prompts by filling out this form in a comment below!



Brief explanation of the form:

Prompt: Can be as simple (word, phrase, song lyric) or as specific as you like. Please do not outline an entire plot, however. :D
Suggested Characters/Pairings: This is optional and can be left blank if you'd like!
Theme/Tone: Fluffy, angsty, etc. The overall mood. Also can be left blank if you'd like!
Additional Info: Here you can leave likes, dislikes, squicks, or anything else that doesn't fit above, but keep in mind that as this is not a gift, creators will not be required to stick strictly to these things. Also optional and can be left blank if you'd like!
