      Staff/Prefect Hunt - June 2018   06/11/2018

      There's a lot more activity around the site these days, and after some discussion, we decided to change our application process a little going forward. We'll still hold onto any applications submitted for three months before you need to reapply (i.e., until September), but we'll be giving people the chance to apply for the first week of every month. (Other than this one - for this month, applications will be open from June 11 - June 18.) You can find the application +here. A more detailed rundown on how HPFT staffing works can be found +here.

      I put so much effort into the CSS coding for my fic on ao3, and it feels like...almost a waste to put it on hpft with none of that. What do folks think? Do you have fics that have coding on ao3 but not hpft? Can I ask people to preferably read it on ao3 but leave the review on hpft? buh.

      What are some good names for the half- Japanese OC female?
      I haven't decided if her father is the older full or half-brother of Patricia Rakepick. If her dad is the half-brother of Patricia Rakepick, the OC won't know if he is the full older brother they won't be close for some reason which I haven't thought of yet. Any insight?
      Thanks for the help :).

      I can’t decide if I want to host a Peter Pan quote challenge (again) lol or if I want to do “inspired by artwork” challenge where I pick a painting or sculpture on which to base your story.

      Yeah, I absolutely have to agree -- that's a fantastic plot idea. I'd say hit up that outline and run into the sunset with that idea.

      I missed the last one of these, but they sound so cool so I thought I'd throw in something recent of mine that I enjoyed writing, even though it's pretty short.   Story Title: Laundry Day

      Will you be available for Q&A? If so, do you prefer live video, live audio, or text only? I can be available for Q&A, but it'll have to be text only as my current internet situation is not the greatest and live video/audio likely would not be supported very well.

      Sorry misread my bad. Not intentional.

      Hello Emma! I’m here to ask some questions and give you some love <3 1. Anthony is related to Tina and Queenie Goldstein, so I was wondering if he’s at all close with the American Goldsteins. Are those Goldsteins also Jewish, in your mind?  2. Do you have religious headcanons for any of the other characters? (For example, I know that Kaur is Sikh. Also, slightly related question: do you headcanon Harry to be Hindu?)  3. How do you think Anthony went about his religious observances at Hogwarts? Do you think Hogwarts accommodated him in any way? Was there also a community of other Jewish students? (I’m asking this question based on what you’ve told me about the idea of penance for your community’s sins too, and that if someone in your community sins then everyone in the community has sinned as well).  I’ll be back with more questions later, but I also wanted to say that your writing is spectacularly creative and I’ve loved beta-ing for you. <3
