the tfwms effect

Posted by Ravenclaw333 in Ravenclaw333's Blog, 25 January 2015 - - - - - - · 148 views

this is possibly going to be the most self-indulgent blog i've ever made (but then again, isn't that the whole point of a blog anyway?)
 
i'm proud of a lot of things about the fred weasley memorial scholarship. i consider it among my best writing, certainly my best banter, and i'm proud of its reception and the fact that it has eclipsed all my older...

Why I ship Harry/Luna

Posted by pookha in the tarn, 24 January 2015 - - - - - - · 123 views

Why I ship Harry/Luna
 
First of all, I recognize that this is only an AU ship.  It was obvious to me that Harry/Ginny was going to be canon from CoS, and for sure after HBP.
 
I first saw something here in OotP, as did many others.  I was disappointed that the ship sailed in HBP and nothing came of it.
In AU, I see this ship happening...

The Fear

Posted by 800 words of heaven in Mad Writings, 22 January 2015 - - - - - - · 141 views

So I've been thinking a lot about this lately. I'm an immigrant. I moved to Australia with my family when I was very young, so I've basically grown up with two separate versions of myself: the version of me that speaks English, and the version of me that speaks Hindi. For such a long time, it's been like living with a secret identity: I was this one perso...

This closet's a bit cramped

Posted by crestwood in No Name Came To Mind , 22 January 2015 - - - - - - · 424 views

I've never really felt comfortable doing this--like, anywhere. I've never publicly said this in any capacity, so it feels really weird for me. And oddly enough, I haven't been hiding it very much recently and have only this tremendously supportive community to thank. Anyway, to get to the actual point, I just wanted to tell you guys that I'm bisexual, mos...

Stress.
 
How does that word make you feel?  We've all experienced it; we've all been pushed to our limits; we've all learned how to alleviate it; we've all failed to alleviate it and succumbed to total breakdown (or is that just me?).  Now, I'm not talking about good stress, you know,...

2015 Story Roadmap

Posted by toomanycurls in toomanycurls - thoughts, theories, and conjecture, 21 January 2015 - - - - - - · 162 views

Sometimes my career and work carries over into writing. For instance, at work we've been going through a bunch of 2015 planning and coming up with various road maps for the year and beyond. I realized a few weeks ago that I had more story ideas (and requests now) than I could keep track of and I needed to write some of it down. 
 
This last week...

A Little Incident of Sorts

Posted by True Author in Thinking Out Loud, 20 January 2015 - - - - - - · 168 views

I could not help but share this incident with you guys! I don't know if it's funny or disturbing or what but I CANNOT stop thinking about this. 
 
So today I was sitting in Math and my teacher suddenly started to give a brief lecture about how books and movies we love have a deeper meaning than we think they do. It wasn't strange because the con...

Ta-da!

Posted by TenthWeasleyWriter in Real Life On Hold, 16 January 2015 - - - - - - · 130 views

My first blog entry in seven and a half months -- where does the time go?
 
First of all, hi! I'm under the impression that some people may not know who I am, which is weird to me because I used to hibernate on these forums, but I'm TenthWeasley/TenthWeasleyWriter, a longtime aficionado of Snape and the Marauders and pretty much any angsty romance ev...

Yajirushi is a cool name?

Posted by StarFeather in StarFeather's Blog, 15 January 2015 - - - - - - · 118 views

 Sometimes, to get inspiration for my fan fic story, I peep into HP search engine and Pottermore. When I found the name of Japanese brand new broomstick was 'Yajirushi', it made me think it was definetely named after the famous retail store. I respect the retail store, and their workers, but why Merlin's sake, it is 'Yajirushi'? ...

A Little Bit of Everything.

Lost in translation

Posted by patronus_charm in thoughts of a cat fan, 13 January 2015 - - - - - - · 182 views

As a linguist, I know all about how things can be lost in translation because I was recently faced with the dilemma of what on earth was to manage in French while in my translation exam and had to resort to the supposedly Franglais term 'coper'. Needless to say, that was obviously wrong because as much as I like to think that adding -er onto English verbs...

Retail and NaNo and Jily, Oh My!

Posted by UnluckyStar57 in Celestial Musings, 12 January 2015 - - - - - - · 119 views

Hi everyone!
 
Unfortunately for me, November was a terrible month for doing NaNo-related things, and December was equally terrible for my HPFF time because I have a job working in retail and I was working nearly every day that I was home for break.  (I worked for FIFTEEN HOURS one day!!!!  FIFTEEN!!!!!)
 
But my purpose is not to sob...

Fanfiction: Who's your audience?

Posted by shez in shez's Blog, 10 January 2015 - - - - - - · 402 views

So this is sort of inspired by ilia's earlier blog entry on writing for audiences (It's not letting me link -- but go check it out!), which got me thinking about the particular group of people I write for. Unwittingly or not, I think we all write for a particular audience or fanbase in this vast pool of HPFF fans. And we APPEAL more t...

To what extent do you write for your audience?

Posted by Ilia in The Scribbler, 09 January 2015 - - - - - - · 273 views

A few nights ago I planned out the rest of my story, Kissing in Private (m) (I'm constantly plugging myself. Sorry not sorry.) From the beginning, I'd had a few options for how the story could end, and I hadn't landed on one yet. Typically what I do when I write is I start with the general guideline and let the story write itself. However it ends, it end...

Why Satire Matters

Posted by StarlightAsteria in StarScribed, 09 January 2015 - - - - - - · 222 views

I've had a bit of a whirlwind week - I had both brilliant news and some very sad news. Combined with certain world events this week, they've led me to some rather serious thoughts, which I thought I'd share.
 
On Wednesday morning, in Paris, nine journalists and policemen were assassinated, and a further three seriously injured. For those of you who...

Why I Despise Aftermath

Posted by maraudertimes in Notoriously Notorious, 06 January 2015 - - - - - - · 181 views

So if you don't know, I have a short story on the archives called Aftermath. If you haven't already seen it, it is a pretty emotionally draining story about Teddy and Victoire and the aftermath of a terrible situation. Mature as mature can be, it is something I wrote at a time in my life where I needed to just vent these feelings out because I had nowher...

I'm Obsessed With Spreadsheets Now! (Even Less So With GIMP)

Posted by Maelody in I Have An Idea So of Course I Should Write About It!, 04 January 2015 - - - - - - · 192 views

I spent a good several hours on my spreadsheet today trying to make my main characters' class schedule (so I don't lose track of their timing) and it continued to freeze on me. Finally, I went online and found a free one that helped the whole thing go smooth as butter! Except for when I needed to take screenshots of it. Then it became complicated and I ha...

Harry/Who?! My Planning Conundrum

Posted by TidalDragon in Learning to Roar, 04 January 2015 - - - - - - · 106 views

To anyone who knows me here on the forums (or has read my profile), one of my worst kept secrets is that my next traditional novel-length project after finishing Evolution will be Shadow Kingdom , the first installment of an AU series spanning 1979-20??. The key tweaks it is based on are: (1) NO prophecy and (2) Voldemort seizing control of...
