  1. Sweet slasher pic!

      I'm in looooooooovvveee <3.

  2. Best Non-HP Fandom Nominations

    Yup, seconded
  3. Stranger Things

    Tell me I'm not the only one who loves this gem of a show! From the synthesizer-heavy theme song to the all the numerous nods to great 80's films, there's so good stuff. It's got mystery, horror, drama and even a dash of romance. You don't even have to be an 80's child like I am to enjoy it - my 17 year old daughter can't wait for the second season. We so ship Jonathan/Nancy. : So who's your favorite character? What did you think of the ending and what about those Eggos that were left by the Sheriff? How many 80's films references did you notice? Which ones? What's your favorite theory regarding the lost knight, the proud princess, and strange flowers? Any thoughts on the Demogorgon and Thesselhydra?
  4. Feliz Navidad, y'all!

  5. Love your icon and signature set!

    2. scooterbug8515


      Thank you so much, ladies!

  8. Avoiding all social media from this point until I've watched Stranger Things S2! Be back (hopefully) soon!

    1. Rumpelstiltskin


      My plans tonight as follows: polish NaNo prepping while binge-watching Stranger Things S2 :D .

    2. Alexis Black

      Alexis Black

      Call me insane, but I'm re-watching S1 (for like, the third time) before I watch S2. :eyeroll:

    3. Rumpelstiltskin


      I probably should be rewatching season one but I'm being a rebel today :P .

  9. Learning to Write Again

    Can I join the club? First other work kept me from writing, stuff that appealed creatively (building websites; working with Adobe After Effects - a digital visual effects program; heck, even knitting). Then doubt starting creeping in when I thought about writing. Now I when I get ideas, I sort of squirrel them away even though I know it's best to strike while the iron is hot. I'll second the suggestion of challenges, but remember you don't have to limit yourself to just HP-related ones. There are other forums that host writing challenges or have writing prompts like Worldsmythswriters, Shadowplay and Candyland Couture.
  10. You crack me up with that profile cover! :wub:

    1. Rumpelstiltskin


      It's the best -- I love it! <33 

  11. Hey there! I know I'm rather late, but welcome to HPFT and Slytherin!

    1. slythercookie


      Aww! Thank you xxx

  12. Knit, write or play MAGIC ... decisions, decisions :hmm:

    1. Rumpelstiltskin


      Everything at the same time! 

  13. September Head Students

    Congrats Rumpel dearest and forever_dreaming!
  14. MAGIC - Rules/Schedule/Overview

    Can we call Specials on the same card or does each Special have to be on a separate card?
  15. Other Fandoms Crossovers

    Titles: A Waning Age series (consisting of A Forgotten Age , An Age of Change, End of an Age) Author: MC Crocker / @scooterbug8515 Link(s): HPFT [T] Length / Completed: Each one-shot is complete. Total length of series: 19,411 (A Forgotten Age: 8,188; An Age of Change: ,6473; End of an Age: 4,750) Main Character(s): Dragon Age: Leliana, Morrigan, Zevran, Varric, Cole, Dorian Assassin’s Creed: Juno/Uni, Jupiter/Tinia, Minerva/Merva (note: these are not pairings) Main Pairing(s): Dorian/Inquisitor (Male) Genre(s): Action/Adventure, Crossover Summary: Many of the major players of the Dragon Age come together one last time to protect the world they live in from being over run by worlds unknown. Other Identifying Details (if applicable): Inclusivity tags: Bi, LGBTQA, Gay Reasons for recommending: (optional) Where to even begin? This series starts off with some of the most beloved characters from the Dragon Age games as they deal with a threat that brings in characters from the Assassin’s Creed games. Scooter not only deftly executes the crossover aspects with ease (something not as easy as one might suppose), but her characterizations of some of the more unique individuals (such as Cole or Morrigan) are spot-on. I hope Scooter continues this series by weaving in the HP-verse. *crosses fingers*
  16. Today feels good - like going home to Hogwarts!

  17. Heya Aph! Are you still doing beta'ing?

    1. Aphoride


      Ahhh, sorry, I didn't see this until now! Unfortunately, I'm not - I keep meaning to get the thread deleted, and then forget *hides* I'm super busy right now with work and studying, and it would be so unfair of me to say I could because in all likelihood I'd just never get round to it :/ 

  18. Site Suggestions and Feedback

    Hey, I have a suggestion. Would it be possible to have an area of the forums where we could discuss mature stories? A Restricted Section, I believe it was referred to as once upon a time. As it stands, the rules state that content on the forums shouldn’t exceed Teen. At the same time, though, our archives allows Mature-rated tales. It would be nice to have a place to discuss these stories, or even solicit opinions or help on such material, without having to switch over to Twitter or some other platform. I’m not advocating a place to go crazy and post NC-17 stuff, just what would be allowed on the archives.
  19. Thank you so much for the lovely reviews on my poems!

    1. TreacleTart


      You're so welcome! I wanted to review more, but between packing all my stuff, moving, and quitting my job...I just ran a bit short on time. I'll be stopping by you AP again soon though! 💗

  20. Pass It Along Challenge 2017 | Alter Guessing

    Oh, really? Well then, I'm going with PaulaTheProkaryote.
  21. Pass It Along Challenge 2017 | Alter Guessing

    Ugh! I’m feeling like a poor representative for Slytherin because I’m not clever enough to know who my gift-giver was. I wish I could blame this failing on something like a lack of caffeine, but alas, I’m sitting here with a cup of coffee and I’m still clueless. Anyhoo … I’m going to guess Anonymous Gift Giver was victoria_anne. As for The Basilisk, the only clue I have is they seem familiar with my horror-centric Unspeakable fic so maybe … PaulaTheProkaryote, TreacleTart or Diogenissa. In any case, I *love* my gifts! Thanks so much! (and thanks to Bianca for pulling together this event)
  22. Six Slytherins online at the same time? Hold the presses - haven't seen that in ages!

    1. MalfoysAngel


      PARTY IN THE BODEGA!!! :banana::excited::greenstars::slytherincrest::slytherin::darkmark:

    2. RoxiMalfoy


      YASSSSSS!!!!! 💚🐍

    3. Diogenissa
  23. Thank you, Anonymous Gift Enthusiast, for the lovely Slytherin aesthetic!

  24. Dropped off youngest at college today ... :sorry:

    1. scooterbug8515


      How did it go love?

    2. Alexis Black

      Alexis Black

      As good as one can could expect. She lost her dorm key within 3 hours of receiving it. xD

    3. scooterbug8515


      As long as the key was found it is gravy. I have been there before. *hugs*

  25. Very nice job on the forum switch-over! Status updates are wonderful!
