Donating to HPFF - You never know what you've got until it's gone

Posted by toomanycurls in toomanycurls - thoughts, theories, and conjecture, in Off Topic 24 February 2015 - * * * * - · 696 views

Today Jay posted a thread asking for our help to keep HPFF afloat for another year. As a site we've been floundering for a year with it becoming increasingly difficult for ad revenue to keep up with our expenses. For me personally, it would be a significant personal loss if this site were to go under which is why I am donating to keep HPFF going. ...

Excuse me for posting double blogs in a day, but I had a lovely Easter review today, so I'd like to write down here not to forget this happy feeling. Here's the beautiful review in verse on the first chapter of my second novel, "Harry Potter and a Daughter of Druid" :
 


I tried responding in haiku.:

I wrote haiku in English for the first time...

Camp Nano, overexertion and getting off-topic

Posted by crestwood in No Name Came To Mind , 28 March 2015 - - - - - - · 124 views

This blog post kind of has no purpose. Or maybe it has several purposes. I'm not entirely sure, but it's here. 
 
I'm incredibly excited for Camp NaNo. NaNo months in general are amazing fun, but also, the story that I'm planning to write has been so great to plan! If you're familiar with the fic universe I'm currently working on, you may know o...

It's Not Real.

Posted by HermyLuna2 in HermyLuna2's Blog, 28 March 2015 - - - - - - · 245 views

Since my previous blog post was quite a drama and people felt offended, I felt the need to explain myself and my attitude towards stories that do fit into the 'mold' JK Rowling has written. 

I thought it was pretty clear that I was some lone wolf howling in the desert, but I also understand that if you did take my statements about au stories serious...

Heteronormativity 101

first things first, i apologise if this blog is a little disjointed or incoherent - it's 6am and i was just woken up by a noise that my little anxiety-riddled brain decided was definitely someone hurling a brick through our window (given that my other flatmates are still out to it I'm going to go ahead and assume it wasn't, but my heart rate isn't r...

Coming back to HPFF and editing CINAS

Posted by Beeezie in Welcome to Branwen's house of mirrors, 28 March 2015 - - - - - - · 90 views

Hey, guys!

Some of you may not know me very well - I used to be super active around here, but I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus for a bit (though you may know me as visenya. or abhorsen. at TDA, where I’ve continued to be active). It's been tough for me to be inspired to make graphics and write at the same time - usually my muse only works for o...

Seven Things to Thank HPFF For

Posted by Gryffin_Duck in Essence Of Insanity, 27 March 2015 - - - - - - · 74 views

Seven years ago, March 28, 2008, I'd been meddling in fan fiction for about six months (unless you count my awful middle school fics). At this point, my fan fiction had only been posted on a very small Harry Potter forum and didn't have much of an audience. I'd thought about posting it on MNFF, where I read fan fiction, but for reasons I still can't quite...

Sirius Black; damaged alpha

Posted by chinaglaze in chinaglaze's Blog, 25 March 2015 - - - - - - · 200 views

It must be about a year since I re-read Order of the Phoenix for the umpteenth time, and began to become fascinated by the character of Sirius Black. Up until then the house itself (an under-represented character in the books if you ask me) had interested me more, but Sirius (Poor Sirius, bless him), that shadowy, two dimensional, underdeveloped character...

A Challenge Within A Challenge

Posted by TreacleTart in TreacleTart's Blog, 25 March 2015 - - - - - - · 155 views

So I joined the archives in 2013, but didn't make it here to the forums until February of this year! In the year and a half that I spent on the archives, I started a WIP and managed to write 2 decent chapters and 9 really terrible ones. In fact, I just recently went through and deleted most of it and plan to start over...but I digress.
 
When I joine...

Disappearing and The Valentine's Day Challenge

Posted by Sarah the Ravenclaw in mischief always wins the war., 24 March 2015 - - - - - - · 170 views

Hi guys! So, I know I kind of went MIA right after my Valentine's Day Challenge ended, and I'm not going to get into all of it because a lot is private and personal, and it's just a really long story that spans a lot of things in a short period of time, but the short and easy explanation is I've been bogged down with lots of illnesses and injuries lately...

Could a (small) annual fee help keep HPFF going?

Posted by SiriusAura92 in An Idea to keep HPFF, 23 March 2015 - - - - - - · 344 views
HPFF, Annual Fee

Hi all!
 
This will be my first ever post to the forums here but I love HPFF too much to see it go if the worst should happen.
 
So I thought I'd create this little place for us to throw some ideas into the cauldron and maybe, just maybe, find a gem that could save us all.
 
I fear this fundraiser becoming an annual event in order to keep t...

Quidditch, and Dobby

There won't be much about Quidditch in this entry - I feel I said most of what I had to say +here  - but I will briefly say some stuff!
 
First, another congratulations to Ravenclaw - and a special shout out to Beeezie for being (as far as I can remember) the only Chaser to join in with my antics! You guys were amazing, and your win was well-des...

Guys! I have just been approached by a rogue snake-like creature thing, demanding that I work under them to spread word of a new challenge! Look!

P.S. When all reviews and their letters/characters have officially been posted, I'll let you guys know! For now, find what you can! And remember to keep your eyes peeled for...

A Message From Rita Skeeter

Posted by randomhpffwriter in A Penny for My Thoughts, 19 March 2015 - - - - - - · 308 views

Hello everyone :bye:
 
I was lucky enough to just get a review from Rita Skeeter myself. In the review, she asked for me to post a message on the forums, so this is my medium of choice. It's full of clues, but it makes matters ten times more confusing. Anyway, lets hope we can work this out!
 
 
So well, time to start guessing.

Ron, the bad guy?

Hello people! So this has been nagging me for a while and I just wanted to hear some other people's, meaning you guys ;) , thoughts on this.

I've been reading a few stories on the archives these few days and I've noticed something. Why is Ron always the bad guy?? I mean I'm a Dramione shipper sure, but why is it almost 99% of the time that Ron cheated on...

Gryffindor Rocks My Socks!

Posted by Selene in Tea with Selene, 18 March 2015 - - - - - - · 134 views

Ravenclaw? Slytherin? Who needs them! And honestly, what the hell is a Hufflepuff?! Gryffindor is the house that rocks my socks! I may have self identified as Slytherin all these years but being. Surrounded by so many Gryffindors had given me a change of heart. ESPECIALLY after how awesome both Gryffindor and that bird house did! ;)

Honestly, all of yo...

Why Ravenclaw is really the best house

Posted by Slytherinchica08 in Slytherinchica08's Blog, 18 March 2015 - * * * * * · 144 views

Seriously guys, Ravenclaw is the absolute best house. Is there really even a point in having any of the other houses when we have a house as fantastic as Ravenclaw? Did you know that I was actually sorted into Ravenclaw on Pottermore? Well after the Twitter challenge results came back to reveal a tie between Ravenclaw and Gryffindor I knew that it was tim...

People who are excellent at writing non-linear stories! (AKA challenge results)

Posted by marauderfan in the nomadic writing desk, 15 March 2015 - - - - - - · 132 views

The Non-Linear Story Challenge was created in order to get some stories out there that are (as the title implies) not told in a consecutive, linear order. Stories told in reverse order, jumbled scenes out of order, you name it. I got really wonderful responses that used the narrative style in such creative ways.

Entries were judged on how the non-linear...

The Clichés

Posted by Lostmyheart in Cookie Jar, 13 March 2015 - - - - - - · 259 views

I've been curious for a while about the clichés certains pairings or eras have.
 
Personally I don't mind the clichés, as long as they're written well or has gotten a good reason to be there. Though I have to admit that I rarely step out of my comfort zone, which is the cave that is filled with Draco stories, often involved with Hermione *...

A Word on Diversity

Posted by shez in shez's Blog, 12 March 2015 - * * * * * · 641 views

I know there’s been talk on HPFF about experimenting with writing different races and religions and sexualities and social issues, oftentimes many at once, like it’s some double coin toss. Random examples of this would be making Harry biracial, making a Hindu Parvati lesbian, making so-and-so a feminist.
 
On the surface these may seem li...
