    1. victoria_anne


      I did know this :D :hug:

    2. forever_dreaming


      1000% agree—Deana is AMAZING ❤️

  3. Wow I'm actually writing for the first time in months and it's actually coming relatively easy?? Perhaps I will finish this chapter in a couple weeks!!

  4. Oh hi. I'm a human disaster and I'm just now responding to reviews from the last two months.

    1. Stella Blue

      Stella Blue

      ME TOO. You've got this!

  5. Yesterday
  6. Anyone else find Star Wars fanfic hard to write?

    1. Tecla Sunrise

      Tecla Sunrise

      Yes, particularly in-universe ones: there so much stuff to research, names, planets, chronology, that one starts looking and then realises three hours have passed and he's now deep into boba feet wiki page, smh!

    2. PaulaTheProkaryote


      Yes! I end up drowning in wiki pages too! 

  7. My reviews are turning out to be...so long. I'm sorry that you have to work your way through such a rambly essay each time. :')

    1. dreamgazer220


      omg no, don’t be sorry! 😍 I was just going to tell you how much I loved them! ❤️❤️❤️ I’m so glad you’re enjoying it so much so far!

  8. I may have put the cart before the horse because I was so excited for another Star Wars fan, but hello and welcome to HPFT! :) I'm Paula, one of the muggle liaisons, and we're so glad to have you! If you ever want to chat about anything or if you have any questions at all feel free to shoot me a pm! I'm always around!

      Yellow! Thank you so much and don't worry, I forgive you, it's completely understandable that you'd be sidetracked by SWEET ANGSTY BEN SOLO OML! Btw I'm Elena and I love warm hugs:hug:


  9. Welcome to HPFT! I'm Rumpels--If you need anything, feel free to send me a PM :) .

      Aw thank you so much!! :hug::loveshower:


  10. Did I spy a Kristin? :P Welcome back, love! I've missed you! :wub:

      :loveshower::bighug::grouphug::wub: HI CHIARA THANK YOU :freeze::hug: 

  11. I LOVE CATHERYNNE M. VALENTE, ESPECIALLY HER FAIRYLAND SERIES. :wub: It's so cool you read it, I've never met anyone who has before!

    1. manno-malfoy


      Oh my God, yes! I've only read the first one but I know I'll devour the rest of them soon. And also, does this woman give writing classes because I'd give anything to write like that!!!

    2. just.a.willow.tree


      Omg yes, her writing is just stunning. It's so whimsical and descriptive and just perfect.

    3. manno-malfoy


      YES! Whimsical is the perfect word to describe it. It just made my heart melt the whole time. I also glowed with envy the whole time because I can't write like that. It's been a week since I read it and I still can't get over the writing.

  12. Good news: I lost 7 kilos!

    Bad news: I can't eat my grandma's Cassata (an insanely good Sicilian cake)

    Spoiler: dieting is HaRd

    Also: is it ok to spam like that? Idk forums are hard man

      Tecla Sunrise

      thank you so much! Yeah it is hard but i'm kind of numb to it now? idk how to explain it but it's been two months and, besides the first days, now i just get rare, random cravings like a pregnant woman! ugh ahaha but it's worth it though :))))

      (No ok, I miss cheeseburger every day!)

    3. MuggleMaybe


      also you're a hufflepuff! HELLO! WELCOME! :greenstars:

    4. Tecla Sunrise

      Tecla Sunrise

      YASS Huffle and Proud! 

  13. I haven't said hello in forever (I think it has actually been months)--so I'm officially dropping by to say it: Hello! Hope things are well :) . 

    1. Nhaz


      Hey, Rumpel! ^^ Sorry for ghosting, life just... happened... very intensely all of a sudden. So, how've you been? Any exciting developments? :D

    2. Rumpelstiltskin


      Completely understandable--life is good at happening. xD And I'm well--nothing particularly exciting on the Rumpel-front. 

  14. Unanswered reviews are back down to 0, and I wrote the first 800 words of chapter 13 of Haunting Shadows! All around a productive Sunday night. :computer:

    1. Felpata_Lupin


      Read your replies! :wub: And so thrilled you are working on HS!!! :greenstars:Also, thank you so much for the review on Jimmy... :$

    2. dreamgazer220


      Of course!! I've been meaning to get around to it anyway, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity :wub:  And I'm excited about HS, too -- I really want to try and finish it this year. 

  15. Last week
  16. I saw you have a goal to bullet journal this year. I bullet journal too!  I don't know if you're on twitter, but if you ever want to share your spreads with me, I'd love to exchange ideas! :D 

    1. Renacerá


      Oh my gosh, so cool! I’m not on Twitter (except for career stuff), but I’d totally love to PM on here about it!

      How long have you been doing it?

  17. Oh God, just found fanfiction I wrote TEN YEARS AGO! It's so cringe-worthy I couldn't finish reading it HAHA

    1. greisful


      dsjglkdfjglsd same, I opened up an old fic that I wrote in my prepubescent years and there was no saving it, I just had to delete the whole thing it was so terrible.

    2. RoxiMalfoy


      OMG! I was actually JUST reading a Next-Gen fic that I found last night, that was written clear back in 2011. I had forgotten nearly everything that happened in that story, but I was so surprised to find that it wasn't actually THAT bad, lol! xD I started college in 2012, so I never finished it... But now I'm kinda wondering if perhaps maybe I should revisit it at some point in the near future? o.O 

  18. Has anyone seen my muse? I REALLY need to finish this next chapter instead of wasting time on the internet...

    1. StarFeather


      Merrrrlinnn your magiiic come baaack!


    2. Tecla Sunrise

      Tecla Sunrise

      Time on the internet is never wasted thoo

  19. Oh my goodness you actually went and left a review on my oneshot on ever fanfic site that I've posted it on thank you so much that was so sweet of you


    1. Elena


      Same story, same review :) It was deserving. I can't understand why you'd get negativity for it - and I'm a Snape lover.

  20. i can't believe this is actually happening but i've actually written smut? i don't even know if it counts as smut to be honest? but it's been written and it's probably not that great but the person who gave me the idea for the fic wants it so i guess my mediocrity will have to do?

  21. If anyone is looking for nonfiction to read for a reading challenge/just ‘cause, I highly recommend “The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human” by Jonathan Gottschall! It’s a great meta-look into storytelling and (for the science nerds) delves into the evolutionary purpose of storytelling too :D 

    1. PaulaTheProkaryote


      This sounds great! I'm adding it to my reading list!

    2. forever_dreaming


      Literally I was just about to DM you telling you about it :D I think you’ll love it! 

    3. 800 words of heaven

      800 words of heaven

      You had me at science nerds :wub:

  22. I'm so sorry I missed out on the 1st race with you tonight, @MegGonagall. I was too busy being awesome, lol!!! :roflol: 

    1. MegGonagall


      But you’re always awesome, so your excuse is invalid. :P 


  23. my first fanfic is up - so exciting

    1. PaulaTheProkaryote


      and it's very cute so far! I can't wait to see where it goes! :)

    2. magpie


      aw, thank you, just saw your review! thrilled that you liked it!

    3. Veritaserum27
  24. I've finally updated Abigail's sequel :D

  25. I know Rita Skeeter was the main journalist for the Tournament in canon but do you think there could be room for a rival journalist who actually tells the truth?

      I was playing with the idea of my OC Carissa reporting on the tournament. Although, she mostly writes about Quidditch so I'm not sure if she'll be qualified.

    3. forever_dreaming


      I think that would be okay. I think a lot of the Tri-Wizard tasks have a similar pace to Quidditch matches, so someone able to keep up with that pace and write well about something so action-packed as a Quidditch match can probably handle a Tri-Wizard task (assuming the tournament you’re referencing is the Tri-Wizard Tournament).

    4. Hufflepuffbookworm1990


      Yep, I'm referring to the Triwizard Tournament. Although, I was planning on her also writing about the Quidditch World Cup that would be too convenient, don't you think? 

  26. Review swap? Anyone interested? :rose:

      YESS! also, ciao carissima, è bello trovare un'altra italiana :)

      Anyway, let's go back to english cause I'm new here and maybe we can't speak another language :)

      So, I'll go review something of yours!;)

      You can review anything here on my page

    3. Felpata_Lupin


      Stick to English is better so mods don't get crazy checking :P but I doubt the occasional Italian will be a problem ;) Anyway, I'll try to review something by you soon, probably tomorrow evening. Thank you for your review on Dear Emmeline! :wub:

    4. Tecla Sunrise

      Tecla Sunrise

      Yeah I thought so too :) don't you worry, take all your time, and you're welcome :D

  27. After listening to the previous president Obama's interview, I happened to find youtube bbc reading Jane Eyre (read in very basic English) and it's the first time for me to read it through. I noticed the very intrinsic theme of Harry Potter or Downton Abbey in that story.
