  2. The Fairy Tale Challenge | Deadline: 1 March 2018

    Apologies for the double post -- My story will be based on Maid Maleen
  3. 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?

  4. The Fairy Tale Challenge | Deadline: 1 March 2018

    I am spending some time brainstorming for this challenge, and I am browsing through this awesome fairy tale database from my undergrad university. (Kind of proud of it lol.) Dropping it off in case it might be helpful for anyone else who is still choosing a fairy tale. http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/folktexts.html [Note to mods: I don't live anywhere near my undergrad university anymore, so no worries on location data ]
  5. HPFT Cookbook

    I like food. I mean, I know food is also challenging at times. But it sure is delicious! (And also necessary for our survival, etc. etc.) Over the past year, I've been cooking a bit more - and I have come to really love trying new recipes. It's fun to have a lot of variety in what I eat, and very fun to have the satisfaction of successfully making something. Our HPFT community is so international and awesome, I think it would be fantastic for us to have a place to share favorite recipes. While you may have a lot of these, the idea is to share either the ones you return to time and time again, or those new discoveries that you want to cook all weekend and then gleefully serve to everyone you meet, including total strangers. (No? Just me?) Anyway, you get my point Before we start, here are some resources for converting between metric, Imperial, and US cooking measurements: +handy charts // +handy calculators When you share a recipe, also copy and paste the recipe index from the previous post, and add your recipe (with the link, if there is one). That way, we can always see and use all the wonderful recipes without lots of searching. Here's the format for the index: I'll start us off... INDEX 1. Vegetarian Shepard's Pie (V, Vg, $) V = Vegetarian / Vg = Vegan / GF = Gluten Free / $ = Budget friendly +Vegetarian Shepard's Pie, via Budget Bytes There are a lot of things I love about this recipe. I'm not a vegetarian, but I do try not to eat meat with every meal. Unfortunately, I am a crazy person and don't really care for bread or pasta, so it can be hard to find vegetarian options that keep me full. This one definitely does the trick! It also feels like great comfort food to eat, while actually being pretty healthy. Since it's easy to access online, i'm not going to write it all out, but I have some tips. Tips: - I always include the lentils. I can't really imagine the recipe without them and don't understand why they're listed as optional - Keep in mind, you will need to prepare or buy mashed potatoes before you start (having leftover ones on hand is ideal) - For ^this reason, I usually use canned lentils to save time; they work fine (I promise! I have also used dried and tasted little, if any, difference) - I use chicken broth rather than vegetable broth, because I find it more flavorful. Obviously, I realize this makes it not vegetarian - While it's good either way, it's nummier with cremini mushrooms than button mushrooms, imo Now, share your recipes, please, and let's get cooking!
  6. Holiday and Diversity Writing Challenge Winners!!

    I am super delayed in replying to this, whoops. Anyways, Thank you SO MUCH! I had a great time writing my entry, and I've loved reading all the other entries, too!
  7. The Fairy Tale Challenge | Deadline: 1 March 2018

    well dang. I LOVE fairy tales, AND I could write OF for this, AND one of my goals this year is to write more OF.... basically, I'm in! Not sure which story yet, but I'll let you know.
  8. Archive name: banshee Story Title: Nights Like These Link to story: +link [M] Reason for nominating: This Dean/Seamus fic shows a very believable way that the two might get together. As usual, Julie writes brilliantly. It's heartbreaking to watch Seamus struggle, but then so, so lovely to experience the realizations of love alongside both of them. There's just enough passion in this, and the romance is SO CUTE. I swear, it is literally impossible not to root for Dean and Seamus once you start reading this fic.
  9. F.R.O.G.S. Nomination Rules

    I know stories cannot win again in the same category. Does that rule also apply to member categories (best reviewer, most versatile)? Thank you!
  10. Reading Challenge 2018

    GOAL: 50 books Audiobooks are very much included because otherwise there's no way. I also want at least 5 of these books to be written in Spanish. ^^^LITERALLY THE SAME, Aph! I have 33 books I haven't read, and I am really striving to read all of them by the end of the year. Although, several of them are massively long (e.g. War and Peace), so... yeah, we'll see. BOOKS READ A Darker Shade of Magic - V. E. Schwab (in progress) The Bear and the Nightingale* - Katherine Arden (in progress) *audiobook
  11. Happy New Year to you!  I was recently remembering our review swaps an eon ago, and I miss them.  :)

    1. MuggleMaybe


      Aw! Well we should do one again! <3

    2. Pixileanin


      Yes, yes we should!

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

    Oooooh GREAT topic! I haven’t read some of the ones mentioned above, but 100% agree about Dormitory 2.6A, the Stygian Trilogy, and Kill Your Darlings. I think I’d be too afraid they’d ruin things with How to Tame a Marauder or The Fred Weasley Memorial Scholarship, honestly. I also think pretty much everything by Mistress would make a great movie, but I’d especially like to see 30 Days of You and Me. Also: Icarus by Stella Blue, Actions Speak Louder Than Words by Veritaserum27, Lying Josephine by writeyourheartout, and Chicks Before Broomsticks by banshee. and, er, this is awkward and I hardly expect agreement since it’s as yet completely unfinished, but I might die of happiness if there was a movie of Elaborate Lives by, um, me
