The LiveJournal community and, therefore, many of the fanworks created for the challenge are now offline.
There’s certainly no lack of fan work in the Harry Potter fandom. Slash, het (or both), gen, it’s all available in rather massive quantities, with the exception – like in so many fandoms – of femmeslash. I won’t say there’s nary a piece out there (that’s of course simply not true), but the fact of the matter is that there’s not enough. The amount of femmeslash pales in comparison to the piles of ‘regular’ slash, het and gen, wouldn’t you say?
The dearth of femmeslash must be remedied, my friends, my fellow girlslashers, because there’s simply not enough of it out there. The sapphic_hp Femmeslash Fanathon has been created for that very purpose – to give the Harry Potter fandom its well-deserved share of femmeslash. Hopefully, both writers and artists will find themselves interested and sign up!
