Prefects' Potpourri Blog Ideas

Recommended Posts

belgian quaffle

Hello HPFTers!

Your prefects are here to ask if you have anything you'd like to see in the monthly potpourri blogs! Unlike the In the Spotlight blogs, the potpourri blog posts can be a bit of anything. Examples of some past blogs have included fic recs, advice columns, facts and information relating to some of our favorite things, and staff appreciation. We wanted to reach out to the community and see what kinds of things you might be interested in seeing in the Prefect blog in the upcoming year! This could be a specific idea or a general topic- we'd love to hear anything you're interested in!

Please feel free to post any ideas you have in this thread or to reach out to any of the prefects via PM if you'd feel more comfortable! We look forward to hearing any ideas you may have!

Thanks!

The Prefects

I was looking back through past Prefect blogs and saw that a while back you did a thing where you wrote letters from Lockhart to staffers, which I thought was cute and funny. I'd love to see some more creative, tongue in cheek things like that. Maybe letters from each of you to one of your characters that's giving you grief? Or swap it, letters from your characters to you about everything you do that annoys them? Reviews of fics on the archives from the perspectives of your own characters/HP characters? 

Along the lines of facts and information about your favorite things: Maybe an entry about your favorite vacation memories/destinations? An entry where each of you is asked what kind of work you would do IRL and what you think you would do in the wizarding world?

I second all @RonsGirlFriday's ideas. 

It would be neat to see a post about books you're currently reading; and maybe one about writing tricks/tips you like to use, or websites you find helpful.

Maybe blogs on the books? Just a blog (maybe one for each book?) when the prefect talk about their favourite bits/general thoughts looking back etc.

A fic rec list of specific rare characters would be cool! like we have a decent number of fics for uncommon characters like Gabrielle Delacour, Marietta Edgecombe, etc

I'm always looking for writing resources (about sensitivity writing, finding your voice, plot/outline development, things that force me to write) 

Maybe an inclusion of tiny writing prompts as a challenge like the question of the month thing (ex include a banana in your fic or include a random line for a chance to win x)

Maybe introduce us to a smaller fandom that as a whole we aren't familiar with and tell us why you love it
