    How to post graphics in a story

    Hi! As a matter of fact - a tutorial has actually just been uploaded yesterday! It is a bit hard to figure out without it though, and it's a good idea to write that into the archives somewhere! This tutorial is mostly about a header for the story, but the same applies for chapter header images! I advise you put those either in the chapter summary, or right above where the chapter starts self, but it works exactly the same! It doesn't quite matter where you put the credit for the image - as long as it's there, but it's easier for us validators if it's directly below the image :3 Does this help?

    Original Fiction Fall Goals

    @StarFeather I think you've hit on something very intriguing! I can't wait to see what you've come up with for this nagini concept!! Batman is struggling to juggle all the things. We haven't put words down for two weeks. It's most distressing, but I plan to have some writing blocks coming up. (crosses fingers) @Cassius Alcindor Welcome to the cray cray portion of the site, where we try to do things inside our minds without all the fanfare. I agree that planning and plotting are two of my favorite things, and then when it comes to actually writing OF, I lose my oomph. (Hands over oomph to you) Good luck with your idea, and please allow us to cheer you on from time to time! @Rumpelstiltskin You can do this! Remember that novels are a marathon and not a sprint. Those 300 words will add up over time. Good luck on your chapter this month!! (crawls back under rock until next week)

    Nagini and Maledictus (M rated sparingly)

    Thank you @potionspartner, @TreacleTart for stopping by to tell us your thoughtful opinions around Nagini. I feel like concocting your ideas and I'll try writing about the Nagini- themed fanfiction wisely.

    @Sleepingbagonthesofa finally done with your request. Sorry it took me so absurdly long... I've enjoyed reading on so very much! Just as a fyi, I will probably not review for requests until the end of the year. I'm behind with (read: I have yet to start) the judging of the entries to the Unreliable Narrator Challenge and I would like to focus on the wishlists as well... You can still request, if you want. Just know that it will take a while for me to get back to you. Taking the chance to wish everyone a very happy holiday season!

    My rules are simple. ~ Only stories from the HPFT archives ~ I'm only accepting one story at a time. - ex: chapter one, then chapter two. This includes one-shots. ((unless I'm really into it and can't stop reading then expect a whole review at the end)) ~ Please allow for a couple days turnaround time. ~ One slot at a time until further notice. ~ All ratings are fine, but nothing too graphic, please. What I'll Read ~ Fluff ~ Cannon ~ Minor Characters ~ Original Fiction ~ Next Generation ~ Maurader Era ~ Fandoms that include, but aren't limited to: HP, Riverdale (archie comics), The Flash and Arrow. ~ Any that involves Newt. What I Won't Read ~ Adult/Minor ~ Smut ~ Extreme violence ~ Poetry (idk if I've even seen an actual poetry story outside of what the Sorting Hat says at the beginning of each term and other small areas outside the series; plus, I'm just not honestly a big fan of it.) ~ Absolutely no r*pe or anything of the sort. No exceptions. This doesn't mean I won't read other stuff, it's just what I'm comfortable with. So fill out the form below and give me something to read!
  24. We are thrilled at seeing fantastic beasts (magical creatures) which look real in the film. My child's favorite is the Niffler. I like the the Bowtruckle and the Dragon, of course (advertisement: please make an entry  @Dragon Tale story challenge hosted by...me. ). I try to like Nagini (oh, Merlin, please save her!) and snakes. Snakes or dragons are sometimes sacred creatures in Asia, on the contrary, they seem to be often hated in the Western countries. I'd like to introduce dragons in Asia.↓ I prefer western dragons to Asian ones, they are wingless serpentine creatures. In that point, the Occamy may be similar to them below. ↓ I like wings, you know I am in the Ravenclaw House. http://allaboutdragons.com/dragons/Japanese_dragon (all) What is your favorite magical creature in the films, Fantastic Beasts I or II?

    What would you do for a living in the magical world?

    You know, I too would love a journalling job for a magical newpaper / magazine. But I would want to do something where I would solve crimes on the side, too. Like a magical detective who journaled for a small-time newspaper. I could solve all sorts of crimes. The Case of the Missing Time-Turner -- solved! The Escapee Niffler Who Stole Christmas -- solved! Who Vandalized Weasley's Wizard Wheezes -- solved! Who Ate the Last of the Pumpkin Pasties from the Staff Refrigerator -- solved, solved, solved ! Or, I suppose I'd like to work at Borgin and Burkes -- that place seems pretty cool. I mean, I would probably accidentally curse myself by playing around with the objects, but, you know, you win some, you lose some and all that. (At which time I can work on solving rather unusual mysteries surrounding the crazy objects in there).

    The Great Collab of 2018-19: Rules of the Road

    The chief focus (aside from collaborating/having fun together ) is whether individual entries fit the topic and, if you so choose, the challenge theme. As long as the topic (or both) of those requirements are met by the entry they would each receive individual points. However you cannot submit the entire resulting short story or series for quality points. Only one (1) entry from within it would be eligible.

    The Great British Bake Off AU Challenge! | 16 February 2019

    Hey guys!!! I need to make one alteration to the way I've been talking about this challenge! As per the HPFT Archive, we can't put living people in our stories, but we can mention them. That includes Paul Hollywood, Mary Berry, and any of the contestants. I don't want my challenge to make anyone run afoul of the Site Guidelines, so I'm going to err on the side of caution and say that we should NOT feature those living people as characters in the challenge entries. They can be mentioned, but no dialogue or anything beyond a quick mention. Sorry for changing things. It's completely my bad for forgetting the Site Guidelines, since I've been away for awhile. I hope that doesn't mess anyone up!
