  1. Eeeeee I just saw your lovely review, thank you so much! :bighug::wub: 


    Yessss! I've been looking forward to this ever since I ran out of chapters to read on HPFF years ago I love this story and am so glad you're posting it here! Very exciting. Congrats
  3. Stranger Things

    In other news, Steve is the best. Also, despite my mini-rant there, I did really love the season! I like that they dealt with a lot of the after-effects that everyone would be dealing with following the events of S1. And I really liked Kali and hope she's back in S3 - I think there's a lot of potential with her character.

  5. So sorry to do this but I'm going to have to withdraw from this challenge. Hannah Abbott is now available if anyone else wanted to write about her!
  6. November Story of the Month Nominations

    Title: to the end of time Author: clairevergreen Link to Story [+Rating if Mature]: (M) Warnings [if applicable]: sexual content Why do you think this Story deserves to be Nominated?: This story is a series of snapshots about Parvati and Lavender over time and the characters are portrayed so wonderfully - as individuals as well as their relationship to each other. And the story showcases Claire's incredible ability to say a lot in few words. It's just a really great story
  7. Learning to Write Again

    I can totally relate. There was about a year, starting about May or June last year when we all started to move to HPFT, when not only did I have no inspiration to write anymore, but also just lost all my love for writing and my heart wasn't in it anymore. It felt like a chore. I also only had one reader so there was minimal pressure to keep pushing through the writer's block. It was kind of hard getting back into writing after that, as you've said. But, I just dove right back in and it turned out okay. One thing that helped me was to read some past reviews that people had left for me years ago, which reminded me that people liked my writing. It's a great way to boost your confidence about your writing so you feel good when you're starting off again! And as others have suggested, challenges can be great to actually prompt you to put some words on paper. HP, other fandom, original fiction prompts, whatever you're feeling. Nonsense! Of course you're good at writing! Besides, I think the fact that you've been spending the interim editing only means you're keeping up your writing skills, because editing uses those same skills. You're looking over your past writing, improving it to your current standard. That means you're a better writer than when you began writing Rule Breaker all those years ago. Hope NaNo has been productive and that you've been able to get back into the swing of things a bit!

  9. Can we appreciate the fact that 'Fireleg' is in the list of murder weapons? xD And First-Year's Botched Potion. Bahahaha I hope it's one of those xD

      I'm so glad someone got the fireleg thing :P When I explained it to my husband his reaction was less than I hoped for.

  11. I'm writing a chapter in which Lily is applying for a job... and each word I write is reminding me that I really should be doing the same instead of writing fanfic xD

  13. I should probably not be signing up for challenges right now but.... ooh look! a challenge that sounds really excellent that I'm going to sign up for (as a maybe) Can I see 13 please?
  14. dog days

    several things stood out to me about this blog: 1. your original fics sound rad. 2. fall is the best and I'm happy for you that your muse has returned! 3. Hahaha right? because chai literally means tea. I don't think you have to say tea afterwards, people should know what you're talking about. Also along these lines I recently visited the La Brea Tar Pits which is kind of the same weird translation issue because "la brea" means "the tar" so it's called "the the tar tar pits" /tangent 4. I need to move to this town
