The Harry/Draco Big Bang: Erised Challenge is a collaborative project designed to inspire long, plotty stories of all ratings and genres accompanied by illustrations. It is modelled after the original Harry/Draco Big Bang, Baby Challenge with the moderators' permission.

The sign-ups for authors and artists started in January 2011 and the H/D Big Bang: Erised Website went live on September 1st, 2011. In the end, 14 authors and 35 artists took part in the challenge, and all together, approximately 950,000 words and 97 artworks were submitted[1].

"We are proud to present to you 14 novellas by our talented writers, accompanied by over 90 artworks from some of our finest artists. The genres range from canon to fanon, from dark to fluff, from creature to mpreg, in short: all that H/D fanwork has to offer."[2]

The website layout and set-up were done by phoenixacid with banner art by lizardspots. The code for the main page and the fic page was developed by grey_hunter and dragon, respectively.

Masterlist

Chì mi na sgoran fo cheò: Only winds and rivers, life and death by wemyss [PG-15, 60,200 words]
Summary: Teddy Lupin, who has a job of academic research in hand, blags his godfather and his cousin – Uncle Harry and Uncle Draco – into taking with him, an Autumn voyage from Orkney to Inverness, and through the Caledonian Canal to Fort William and the Road to the Isles, in hopes that they’ll get sorted and realise they’re as destined a couple as their sons are. He’d not thought that it should want trows, hogboons, revenant Vikings, the great each-uisge of Loch Ness, assassins, international incidents, and the People of Peace to effect that end.

After a rocky start, Draco examines the body and discovers a strange ailment which makes the man's magic grow out of control. With Draco’s help, Harry investigates the mystery.

'The Play’s The Thing!’ by tigersilver [NC-17, 82,000 words]
Summary: Harry Potter is not happy with the life he’s landed in. He’s trained to be an Auror, was invited to be one, but now he’s considered too valuable to be allowed out in the field. He faces a life of paperwork, migraines and the petty miseries of being a desk jockey. Draco Malfoy has just returned to England from Romania, where he worked his tail off at the Dragon Preserve. Now he requires a paying position and Malfoys are still somewhat persona non grata. Fortunately he has good friends, and among them are three lively Witches: the wifty yet strangely prescient Luna Lovegood, the scheming and fun-loving Ginevra Weasley, and the brainy and well-organized Hermione Granger. The three Witches cooked up a real cauldron-boiler of an idea: forming a troupe of Players for the purpose of presenting theatricals to the Wizarding folk. For the play’s the thing, as the Bard once said, and the world is in need of some enjoyment.
