    I'm in desperate need of someone to read over my ridikulolous challenge entry before I drop it in the archive today! I'm curious if it would also classify as a great collab (I was aiming for it too) 

    Thanks in advance

      Hi Lacey! We haven't met yet, but I have seen you around. If you like, I could take a look at your story this afternoon. What are you wanting in terms of feedback?

      Hey there! 

      I am hoping for a general edit punctuation is my least strong point.  But also curious about if the story line does indeed fall under a certain theme I was hoping for it too!  I'll pm you :)

      Great! I'll take a look at it this afternoon.

I don’t have any specific images in mind but you’ve read what I’ve got so far and I trust your artistic judgment so whatever you think For colours, maybe blues and greens but whatever works and for text just the title please! (I know this is like nothing to go off of but if needed my pinterest will have more of an idea than I do lol)

    The Great British Bake Off AU Challenge Results

    This was such a cool challenge; I had a lot of fun writing! Thank you so much for hosting! I can't wait to read all of the other entries Congratulations to @aelaia and @Chemical_Pixie as well!

    My answers are the same as @VaguelyCreativeName except that I've never said y'all. XD And that I call my grandparents nanna/granddad on one side and granny/grandpa on the other side. I call the bugs woodlice because I grew up in the UK, but folks around here actually call them slaters and I get teased a lot by my best friend for this.

    Suddenly I'm writing Bill/Fleur 'English tutoring' smut that I feel like should probably never see the light of day, and I have to wonder why I can't write stories without smut these days. (Unless it's Shenanigans. And that will have smut once Vic and Teddy get together, it's literally already written.)

    society's standards ruin everything and your girl is sick of it

    I'm really sorry that your sister is unfortunately learning the toxic ways of society. It's a hell of a cycle to break out of once you get yourself in. I used to struggle with my weight a lot too, and well, it's a bit more muted these days, but there are just some things I can't imagine happening to me because the thoughts have had such a lasting effect on me. I think what really helped me was finding a good support system, as well as having a hobby to keep you occupied when your friends can't be there for you. I hope your sister finds that.

    society's standards ruin everything and your girl is sick of it

    I feel for you so much in this situation Plums, even though I don't have younger siblings (#triplet). It sucks that she doesn't have you there to guide her like you had with your older sister, but I think once she realizes all you're trying to do is really just be a good big sister and negate the negativity your mom may be exuding (even if unintentionally) she will appreciate you all the more for it. Social media is definitely much more toxic than it was when first started using it when I was 13-14 (~10 years ago). Something I've started doing in order to limit my FOMO and other bad thoughts regarding others' social lives is to set a time limit for how much social media I get to use for the day using the Screen Time feature on my iPhone (I think you can do something similar on androids?). My friend also has a specific limit of 30 minutes a day for Instagram, which she said has really helped her mindset and also minimizes her distracted scrolling throughout the day. My body image issues stem from constantly being called "anorexic" and "too skinny" when I was younger (and occasionally throughout high school and into undergrad as well) so it's kind of the opposite of what's happening with your sister, but I totally get it. Being told that I needed to "put some meat on those bones" or "eat a burger" multiple times a day has definitely still influenced my thinking of my body today as an adult, and I'm slowly working on mental positivity, even though I know that I'm perfectly healthy. Also, as my sister is a much more prolific makeup-wearer than I am, my mother actually told me last year that I need to start wearing more makeup in order to do better in professional life and that honestly took me so long to unpack and not start micro-analyzing every "imperfection" in my face. Is your sister starting to get into makeup as well? I'm not sure how the change from primary to secondary school translates to the US public school system, but I know that middle school is double rough when makeup is involved. And nowadays, with what seems like every girl and their cousin having a makeup youtube channel, the pressure to look flawless at school is only increasing, and increasing for younger and younger girls. Teenage girls are some of the harshest people out there, and when they've got the internet at their fingertips and disposal, they don't hold back. They not only promote this "perfect" life they're living, but they also are ruthless towards classmates online because they can hide behind the screen and say things they would never tell people to their faces. I hope you can work with your sister on these types of behaviors and lines of thought so her teenage years go much more smoothly than I'm sure many of ours did.

    society's standards ruin everything and your girl is sick of it

    aw that's actually really sweet and a great idea! i'm hoping that i can introduce her to more corners of social media like that so that she can be more comfortable in her body and doesn't feel like she has to warp herself in order to be validated. body image is the worst thing to struggle with imho because your body is... well, you. so i'm hoping to nip it in the bud before it progresses to anything i went through. i hope you (and strawberry and i) can come to a point where we don't have bad image days anymore

    I love, love, love that you've posted this. All of these I seem to have a couple of answers for but I lived in both Boston and Arkansas during my formative years (and now the midwest) so I think that makes a difference. What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house? TP or roll the house! What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball? Roly-poly or pill bug. What is the bubbly carbonated drink called? Coke (my Grandpa said sodee pop though and he's from Iowa) What do you call gym shoes? tennis shoes, but it would be more likely I'd call them by brand. (ie-have you seen my nikes anywhere?) What do you say to address a group of people? Y'all What do you call the kind of spider (or spider-like creature) that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs? Grandaddy Long Legs (idk why they were promoted to grandparents but they were) What do you call your grandparents? Grama, Pops, Grandpa, and Grandma. What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket? My dad, brother, and I call it a cart (my husband and mom call it a buggy). What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining? A sunshower! What is the thing you change the TV channel with? Remote!

      @Felpata_Lupin That'd be totally fine :D

      Tempting challenge, which I shamelessly accept. 

      ...you may need to nag me to write on Tuesday. 😂❤️

    3. BookDinosaur


      Do you have room for one more? I only have the one story up, but I'm happy to go wherever you may choose to direct me :P

    4. Chemical_Pixie


      I do!! I am happy to review your fic. 😊 As for me, choose what sounds most appealing to you. A Place Not Far From Here is a Next Gen Deathly Hallows mystery in a split timeline. A Woman’s Place is a feminist Order collection of related one shots about every female Order member. Golden Eagle Soaring is about Order member Marlene McKinnon, who is a journalist with a vendetta (companion piece to awp but can be read separately). 🙃

    Lost formatting?

    Hello! I was wondering if there was a thread somewhere with details about the nuts and bolts of posting in the archives. I'm particularly interested in how to maintain the formatting I do on my story after submitting it for validation. I usually copy and paste my story from pages on my mac and then increase the size of the font. But the font always shrinks back to really tiny after I submit it for validating. Thank you for your help!

    That giddy feeling when you're plotting out your story, and you're not sure on which side of the genius/insanity line it falls....😀

    SKWERLS (and Other Mysteries of the English Language)

    Ooh I love these dialect things!! I'm also very midwestern so many of mine should agree with yours, @MuggleMaybe! What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house? TP (teepee) What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball? Roly Poly What is the bubbly carbonated drink called? pop What do you call gym shoes? tennis shoes (or running shoes) What do you say to address a group of people? Hey guys/hey y'all What do you call the kind of spider (or spider-like creature) that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs? Daddy long-legs What do you call your grandparents? grandma & grandpa What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket? shopping cart (cart for short) What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining? Ooh I honestly don't even know?? Probably like a sun-shower? What is the thing you change the TV channel with? remote control (remote usually though) And then with the image thing: a) sidewalk b)right of way (the city owns it) c) curb #teamSKWERL And heyooo the US region did get me correctly, AND got my hometown as one of my 3 main cities!! So I'm very much clearly from Iowa, although some of those questions were very odd and very clearly referred to something that probably isn't a thing in Iowa/midwest, lol.
