  1. Your Preferred Reviewing Method?

    Like most people I tend to do more the stream of conscious type review, mainly because if a fic/chapter is several thousand words long I'll have forgot a lot by the end of it but also because I feel like it makes my reviews longer. If I just read it all and then put a review at the end I struggle to get a paragraph, it's just "great fic...loved X and Y.." which I don't like leaving people. It just feels really generic, and a bit of squealing/capital letters is always good! I'm also really positive, even though I love it when people leave CC on my work, bar the odd spelling error, I don't tend to leave it in reviews. I just try to be nice and point out the good things!
  2. November 2017 Bulletin

    I love the idea of a bulletin, this is amazing! Congrats to all the new staff members and prefects, you're all going to be amazing! Great job to all the winners and featured stories, some more fics to add to me to be read pile! And Happy Birthday to all the November babies!
  3. Learning to Write Again

    I know how that feels! When I first joined the site in 2012 I was writing everyday and now I'm lucky if I write a few times a year! I'd love to get back into it but I have no motivation for it. Just take it slow though, writing something now is an achievement even if it isn't a long term fix. And personally I think Challenges are a great way to get you back into writing, ones that give you a prompt or the first line are good if you don't feel like planning either. You can just see where it takes you. And don't worry about feeling like your writing isn't as good any more, just jump back in and if you still feel like that I'm sure there's a beta on here who could help or make you feel better about it. Good luck with Nano as well!

    congratulations guys!
  10. The Dialogue or Description challenge Challenge Deadline: 15th December (because I start uni on Monday and that's when I break up for Christmas so that's when I'll realistically have the most time to judge and leave prizes) Challenge Details: So basically I was talking to some of you lovely people (and I don't remember who, I'm so sorry ) and it kind of appeared that most people preferred writing ether dialogue or description, not really both. Therefore this challenge is going to get you to try and specifically write the one you don't like, but with a little bit of help. If you're interested, leave a comment and please say which you find the hardest to write, dialogue or description.(don't cheat, cause then it's not much of a challenge) Then, after about 2 weeks I'll pair you up with someone who is the opposite and together you have to try and write a story, one person doing the dialogue and one person doing the description. Obviously you can help each other out but not to much, I want this to be somewhat difficult! Therefore, no takers or maybes, just please try your best to get it written and only one-shots accepted for this! Also, feel free to keep entering after the two weeks is up, I'll just keep putting people together as they enter! Accepted Fandom(s): Just Harry Potter for this challenge, otherwise it would be too difficult (unless you can find a fandom both of you and myself are interested in!) Accepted Ratings: Any as long as it's accepted on the archives Rewards: I'll review every entry and try to get graphics to people but I'm not very artistic so no promises! 3rd place: 1 additional review for each author. 2nd place: 2 additional reviews for each author. 1st place: 3 additional reviews for each author + Meet the Author Questions!

  12. (Cursed Child)The Sorting of Albus Severus Potter

    I love Albus having been sorted as a Slytherin, as most people have said it really helped to show that Slytherin isn't just for bad guys! I think it's nice to show that you can be a ‘good’ guy like Albus, and still wear the green uniform. Because good and evil aren’t that black and white, most people are elements of both and I think Cursed Child shows that really well, especially in Albus and Scorpius. I also had an inkling after reading the nineteen years later part in Deathly Hallows that he would be sorted into Slytherin, but it's justified so it makes sense to me. I think as the Wesley's get married and have children, they won't just automatically all be put into Gryffindor. There must be other traits that they value beside bravery and other typical Gryffindor ones. I also wish we knew what houses the other next Generation kids were sorted into because Albus still seems so against being a Slytherin at first, but it made me wonder weather it was against being a Slytherin or against being in another house beside Gryffindor like the rest of his family.
  13. Prefect Change

    Thank you for everything Reene and it's been so much fun working with you!
  14. This month's nominees for Story of the Month are: Title: Immortal Misconception Author: AbraxanUnicorn Link: Immortal Misconceptions (m) Warnings: Sexual Content, Slavery, Hate Speech & Domestic Abuse Reason for nominating: Despite the warnings on this, the piece is hilarious, humour can be so difficult to get right but Meera kills it. I think it's an amazing piece because I didn't stop laughing when reading. Such an enjoyable piece that will have you in stitches! Title: All the Truth About Jimmy Portman Author: Felpata_Lupin Link: HPFT (M) Warnings: Sexual content, violence Reason for nominating: Even if you're not familiar with Chiara's amazing Liar universe, you need to give this story a read. I'm not even usually a fan of AUs but this one grabbed me straight away (and, hey, the Marauders live!) It's a fantastic What if? story where Neville is marked with the scar, and gives the universe you know so well a fresh feel. Chiara's been working hard on it lately, and I think it deserves recognition. Title: Secret Keeper Author: poppunkpadfoot Link(s) to story With Rating: HPFT [T] Warnings (if applicable): Substance Abuse Why do you think this story deserves to be nominated?: Peter is definitely a character that doesn't tend to feature in fanfic and Kayla has done an amazing job here writing from his pov. I loved how it focused more on Peter's relationship with the other Marauders than I had seen in pretty much any other stories. It's a fantastic little snapshot into their lives (and of course there's Sirius too, would it be a Kayla story without him? ) Title: The Recombination of One's Soul and the Psychological Aftereffects: a Case Study Author: @Rumpelstiltskin Link(s) to story With Rating: HPFT (M) Warnings (if applicable): Sexual Assault, Violence Why do you think this story deserves to be nominated?: What is this, even. Like, I don't even understand what this is. Rumpel does an absolutely incredible job of presenting an alternative universe in which Tom Riddle experiences remorse and survives DH... and shows how incredibly toxic he continues to be despite that. Highly recommend. Title: The Ultimate Betrayal Author: @RoxiMalfoy Link(s) to story with rating: +Here (Teen) Warnings (if applicable): None Why do you think this story deserves to be nominated?: I had an extremely tough time picking a nomination for this month, but I ultimately chose this fic because of how well Deana wields Percy Weasley's character in this AU. Having to throw Percy into a dark story where he was forced to decide between what the Dark Lord was offering and what was previously noted as the standard 'right way' was something that had to be done very carefully in order to stick to Percy's canonically pre-established characterization. Deana uses that characterization to bring an entirely new depth to Percy that plays directly into the sequence of the plot in the first two exciting chapters of this awesome tale (hint, Deana, update ). Title: The Department Author: poppunkpadfoot Link(s) to story With Rating: The Department (M) Warnings (if applicable): Domestic Abuse Why do you think this story deserves to be nominated?: Kayla did a great job in describing Sirius Black, a rookie Auror who got to know his brother's death. She broke new ground in her writing. Title: Beyond Repair Author: MuggleMaybe Link(s) to story With Rating: T Warnings (if applicable): N/A Why do you think this story deserves to be nominated?: This is such a great story about the relationship between Lily and Petunia. It''s a really refreshing fic and shows just how complicated a sibling relationship can be.
