  1. Reading Challenge 2018

    Wow. THANK YOU for posting this! I've never had the guts to try and commit to one of these challenges, because RL and my staffer duties make it difficult to find time. I didn't want to add *one more thing* but I feel like this is really achievable! Okay - so I'm gonna start really small here and make my reading goal of 12 books this year. I do a lot of reading with my kiddos, and I'm going to count that too - at this point we're only reading chapter books, so it's not like I'm talking about picture books or anything. Here are my current "in-progress" books: Treasure Hunters - Danger Down the Nile by James Patterson Lab Girl - by Hope Jahren Thanks again!

  8. What Fics Would You Like To See As a Movie?

    I'm like, dying right now. Gah! Totally seconding (or thirding, or fourthing, or whatever) "The Fred Weasley Memorial Scholarship" by @sapphicsunrise . I think that story should be a Netflix series. So I can watch it over and over and over. Also, Harry Potter and the Conspiracy of Blood by @CambAngst would make a phenomenal movie. Dan's writing lends itself to fast paced action, combined with witty dialogue and a deeply intriguing plot. I'd pay to see that.
  9. Tag Requests

    Hi there! I'd like to request a Minerva McGonagall/Amelia Bones pairing. My latest story features them!
  10. Your Preferred Reviewing Method?

    Review Categories During our site-wide reviewing event, I was fortunate to receive many, many lovely reviews. It got me thinking about all of the different reviewing methods that are out there. I found myself giving quirky, fun nicknames to the different types of reviews that I've gotten over the years. Feel free to add to the list! The Super-Excited - This review contains lots of exclamation points! AND CAPS!! The sentences are short and it usually starts or ends with: "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!" The Fly-By - This is when a reader binge-reads a whole set (or maybe ALL) the chapters in your story, but takes the time to write a short note at the end of each one. Isn't is lovely to log in to the archive and see 5 new reviews?! That Special Reviewer - This is the long, detailed review that you get from that special person who always finds your new chapters and jumps one them. You know what I'm talking about—when you post a new chapter and just wait... and wait... and wait... until they've seen it and had time to leave a review. The Play-by-Play - I love these reviews. The reader is reviewing while they are reading their story and asking questions, and then when they find the answer, you can feel their emotion at how your words affected them. Gah!! So, whaddya think? Do you have a favorite "type" of review that you've received? Do you have a certain type of review that you usually leave? Can you add to the list and come up with others?
