  2. Best Romance (Fan)fiction Nominations A good romance is always nice to read.

  8. Languages

    Dutch for me! It's my native language! As for other languages - English is my best one but irrelevant. I forgot everything French and I can understand and read (most of) German, but writing is a big no, so I guess this isn't helpful either.
  9. Reading Challenge 2018

    I literally cannot read the name Carl Sagan without getting the Nightwish song based on him in my head. Thanks for that! (it is a good song tho.) OKAY SO. I am terrible at reading (well I'm not but last year I read a grand total of 2 or 3 books and the rest I read was fanfiction so I'm horrible in that regard) so I want to change that. I am pretty sure that like over 60 books on my shelves are unread (though to be fair many of those books are trilogy's so I can't exactly read a book till I finished the previous one) and I am still busy reading five or six books simultaneously (and have been for 1-2 years shame on me), so I'd like to actually get... more read because I keep buying books and that ain't helping either. So... my goal is to actually finish more than 3 books :'D And preferably get my 'unread' pile down. The books that I am and have been reading for ages are: - One Plus One - Jojo Moyes (which also literally has the shortest chapter I've ever read and which basically only consists of 6 words (from the top of my head). I'm still amazed) - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Ravenclaw Edition) - J. K. Rowling (bc rereads) - A Feast For Crows - George R.R. Martin - The Name of the Wind - Patrick Rothfuss (fun fact there is a song based on that too from the same Nightwish album :'D) - Fool's Errand - Robin Hobb - The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater So let's see how it goes!

  15. Archive Issues/Bugs

    I haven't been deleting any of them so it's a bit odd... Unless Laura or Olivia did, of course.

  19. Nano Penpals

    This year for NANO, we're doing something a little bit different! The lovely MuggleMaybe had the brilliant idea of creating a Penpal activity, so we've modified it a bit to fit in this month! Here's how to participate! -Post saying that you're in by 11:59pm GMT on November 2nd. -We will be pairing you up with someone. The goal is that it will be someone you don't know super well or haven't interacted with a whole bunch. (Pairings will be posted on November 3rd GMT) -You must commit to writing to your penpal AT LEAST 4 times throughout the month. They don't have to be super long letters, but they should be substantial and encouraging. Ideally, you'd check in more than that, but 4 times is the bare minimum. -We are only allowing each participant to have one penpal. We want you to have an opportunity to really get to know your penpal. To Sign Up fill out the following form: [b]Pen Name:[/b] [b]Full NaNo or Rebel?[/b] [b]Nano Goal:[/b] [b]House:[/b] [b]Nano Project:[/b] [b]Will you be posting as you go?:[/b] [b]Link to your NANO Nest:[/b] [b]What can your penpal do to help encourage you along?:[/b]
  20. Nanowrimo Sign-Up Thread

    The writing event of the year has finally arrived! That’s right folks it’s time for NaNoWriMo. (National Novel Writing Month) For those of you new to the writing world, NaNoWriMo is an event held worldwide every November where participants strive to write a novel (50,000 words) in 30 days. All in all this averages out to 1,677 words per day. You can find more information at the official NaNoWriMo site here (http://www.nanowrimo.org). This is the place where you can sign up on HPFT to join the rest of the crazies in this adventure. You will laugh, you will cry, you will want to throw your computer across the room when the words just won’t come. For those of you that succeed, at the end of the month you will have 50,000 words that may or may not make any sense but they will hopefully become the next great novel. To sign up, simply fill out the following form: HPFT Penname: NaNo Username: NaNo Project: Rebels, you can sign up here GOOD LUCK!
  21. There are many famous author's out there who are worth our admiration, but many of us have one special author who's writing style we really look up to. Perhaps you like writer's who write in second person or use lots of descriptive prose. Maybe you like a more direct, third person style of writing. Or perhaps you have no idea who it is you may write like! But fear not! As your NaNo story develops, merely pop sections of it into this here (12+) generator, and it will analyze your submission before letting you know which famous author's writing style you seem to share! Tell us all about who you write like below.
