Potions and Snitches
Snape and Harry Gen Fanfiction Archive


With credit to (and with permission from) our amazing JA Worley comes CozyFest- a fic fest to help us all ease into those longer nights and colder temperatures. Much of this is borrowed from Cozytober, which is a cross-fandom fest, but I've edited the prompts for P&S slightly to fit a little more with the Potterverse.

🍂**Welcome to CozyFest**🍂

This mini fic fest is all about autumn and cozy vibes. Think the smell of the earth after it rains, wearing fuzzy socks and warm hoodies, drinking a mug of your favorite hot drink, and cuddling up with loved ones. At the same time, October is spooky season, so think about haunted houses, ghosts, and things that freak people out. The fun part of this event is you can turn any of the prompts into cozy vibes, or turn any of them into creepy ones. Welcome to CozyWinter.

🍂**How To Participate** (See end of post for rules) 🍂

Answer one prompt, or answer them all. Answer them in any order you want. Also, mention which prompt or prompts you’re using in your starting authors note (Example: ‘I’m participating in cozytober this year, and I’m using the prompts: Ghosts, cool rainy days, and favorite warm sweatshirt).

I just finished my first fic fest story! This was so much fun, I will definitely be trying these out more.

Wondering: Can I enter story(ies) previously written but as-yet-unposted so long as they reflect some of the CozyFest prompts? 🐢

Yes, that's fine. If it's unposted, it's new.
