The 24-Hours I questioned all of my decisions in life

Posted by alicia and anne in alicia and anne's Blog, 30 July 2015 - - - - - - · 94 views

Quite a few of you are aware that I had a moment of insanity yesterday, which lasted 24 hours, and was completely inspired by Tanya’s 24-hour write-a-thon (She is amazing and I applaud her for achieving that fantastic goal. I feel your pain!)
I wanted to do something just as awesome and wanted to challenge myself in a way that I never have be...

The Between Two Wars Challenge Results :D

Posted by Unicorn_Charm in Unicorn_Charm's Blog, 29 July 2015 - - - - - - · 99 views

A few months ago I hosted my first solo challenge; The Between Two Wars Challenge. What I was looking for were Pre-Hogwarts stories on different characters' lives between the first and second wizarding wars. I received three fantastic entries. I mean, it was so, so, so hard trying to rank these stories, because you all did such a great job o...


Is it just me?

Posted by lilyandjamesfan in lilyandjamesfan's Blog, 29 July 2015 - - - - - - · 100 views

Is it just me, or do other people recycle things from other fics?
I mean you write a story and someone ends up giving birth, do you then use that scene as a basis for another birthing scene, or do you start from scratch?
I'm asking this because I am writing a fest piece for community on livejournal and I have copied and pasted a whole sectio...


The Answer to the Unfinished WIP Problem

Ive Found it!

So I don't know about everyone else, but I tend to have a lot of stories on the go at one time. I've also found that I get so excited about a new idea that I will pre-write several chapters before I get too keen and begin uploading the content to fanfiction sites like this one, promising readers speedy updates and all the excitement of seeing a new fic....


Why You Should Eat Ice Cream Tomorrow

Posted by raisha in raisha's blog, 29 July 2015 - - - - - - · 114 views

Kind of peculiar. Of all the things you should be doing tomorrow, eating ice cream may or may not be on your list (probably not).
But what if, and just hear me out here, eating ice cream could help someone in need?

That's an absurd thought, isn't it? How could YOU eating ice cream, of all things, help someone?

I'm glad you have so many questions about t...


Terry Pratchett Quote Challenge Results - WINNERS

Posted by PrimeSuspectsAreNargles in Dazzling Daydreams, 28 July 2015 - - - - - - · 103 views

Once again I would like to say sorry for how long this is take, and that wow, this was so incredibly hard to judge. Seriously, even though i only had 4 entries in the end, each were brilliant in their own way, and everybody used their quotes so well, and captured the essence of Terry Pratchett in some way. So, even though I don't think I originally put th...


The Story of the Fire Alarm

Posted by WriteYourHeartOut in WriteYourHeartOut Writes Her Heart Out, 25 July 2015 - - - - - - · 202 views

^ Yep, that's me.
(Well, all except for the lie, of course. :p)
While stalking the Houses to see who could figure me out, there seemed to be nothing more than some lucky and/or unlucky guesses with this guy. I sort of thought mine would be more obvious than it turned out to be, but... I seemed to have miscalculated. Whoops! :sweat:
Anyway, something I saw happen during my stalking was a question on how it was possible to sleep through a fire alarm, both in general and while on a school field trip. We started chatting about it a bit in the staff Shout Box, and it was suggested that I make a blog to explain exactly what happened, so... here we go! :D
When I was in the 8th grade, I was voted as one of about 20 people in my year to become a Natural Helper. Basically that just meant my classmates thought I was a nice person that could be seen as someone you could approach with a problem. Natural Helpers were the people you went to for peer guidance, more or less, and your classmates voted on them, and I was among the winners. (Hopefully this isn't too shocking a thing to hear. ;))
As a reward, all of the Natural Helpers got to go on a weekend field trip to some house on the water where we mostly just played games, but also did some training activities for how to be good helpers or something. (Mostly I just remember kicking ass at ping-pong, though.) At night, I shared a room with five or six other girls, where all of the beds were grouped close together in the back of the room (as in, they were practically touching), and one night... well, there was a fire alarm!
I was obviously asleep when it first went off, but a light from the hallway woke me up, and when it did, that sound flooded in. Fire alarm's are crazy loud. And super shrill. And when it hits you by surprise, it's scary. Especially when you're a young girl in the middle of the night, away from your family. But you know what I did before bolting for the door and running for my life? I jumped on every single other bed in my room to wake up the other girls and make sure they got out, too.
And you know what happened?
There was nobody there.
All the beds were empty! Every other kid had already evacuated. And that light from the hallway that woke me up? That was a flashlight from my teacher who had to come back inside to search for me after they took a head count and came up one kid short!
So... yeah. I slept through the fire alarm for at least several minutes, was eventually woken up by a flashlight, tried to save all my roommates, found out I'd been left behind instead, and finally exited the house confused and upset.
Luckily, there was no actual fire that set off the alarm, but some faulty something-or-other that did it instead. Phew! :p And fingers crossed I'm either not as heavy a sleeper as I once was or that someone tries to wake me should I ever find myself in a similar situation involving a real fire!


Story Connections - Writing in the Same Universe

Posted by toomanycurls in toomanycurls - thoughts, theories, and conjecture, 24 July 2015 - - - - - - · 257 views

By now you've all submitted your answers for Would I Lie to You so I can talk about one of the facts I shared. Some people (I'm looking at you Gryffindor) doubted whether all my stories were in the same universe which has prompted me to illustrate how when where my stories cross one another. I've been meaning to do this for close to a year but procrastina...


Headcanon: Wizarding Bulgaria

Posted by Nhaz in Yeah, whatever, 23 July 2015 - - - - - - · 156 views

Okay, I decided to flesh the Bulgarian wizarding world out. I may be getting annoying with all this Bulgarian stuff I'm posting (I'm wondering myself why I decided to do so), but it's a blog, so reading is optional.
What we have from canon:
Bulgaria's wizarding ruling body is called Ministry of Magic, like the one of Britain.
Some of the st...


faceclaims (aka tumblr ruins me)

Posted by The_Crookshanks_Saga in The Blog of an Undercover Ninja, 23 July 2015 - - - - - - · 107 views

I think a lot of people here are aware of the slight addictions I have with anime, tumblr, and anime tumblr. So recently, this amazing artist called Noran (you can find her here http://noranb-artstuffs.tumblr.com/ (M)) has taken an anime called Haikyuu!! (10/10, recommend with all my heart) and drew lovechildren for a few of the more popular ships. This...


Finding My Way Home

Hi friends! 
So. I finally made a blog. 
I'd been thinking about creating one for a while, but I had no idea what I would write about, so I just kept putting it off. But I decided last night that I was going to make one today, no matter what, and here I am!
For my first blog post, I wanted to talk a little bit about the four...


Random Review Comeback!

Posted by Owlpost68 in Reviewers of the Round Table, 20 July 2015 - - - - - - · 165 views

Hi everyone, it's been a long time, but I'm back and it's all because of a author's response to a review I made.
So, on a different note, I think it's even funnier that I named the blog Reviewers of the Round Table because I have named my Tablet Sir Facely III of Microsoft, and have even made up names for the keyboard, pen and cover. So now I'm eve...


The Riddles Unravelled!

Posted by nott theodore in nott theodore's Blog, 20 July 2015 - - - - - - · 187 views

I know what you're thinking.  Right now, you probably don't want to see another riddle in your life and quite a few of you are probably looking round for books to throw at me (although I can assure you that I will throw them back, if you get that violent :p), shouting 'Sian, stop being so evil, we hate you and your riddles!'

Some Reflections on Asexuality and Fic

Posted by Ravenclaw_FTW in Well I Wonder, 18 July 2015 - - - - - - · 282 views

On this rainy Saturday, I wanted to share some thoughts I've been having lately as I've gotten back in HPFF and fic after a long-ish hiatus. Before I begin, I want to remind everybody that the thoughts I express in this post are purely my own, and I obviously am just one piece of the larger ace1 community. I don't speak for the community (who could?). (P...

Cursed Child

My first blog entry ever  :yahoo:  and it is about...the CURSED CHILD! You know, the play being released in London next summer that is a -- I mean isn't a prequel to Harry Potter, and that I won't be able to see until it is publicly released in probably about five to seven years because I am a broke American!
That play.  :( ...


Why I write, and why I love HPFF.

Well here goes my first blog entry, and to be honest with everyone, I'm pretty nervous guys. I guess I better actually start before I get cold feet. Gah, dumb self-conscious nerves...
Anyway, last year was my senior year (or was it this year, since summer isn't over?) and I signed up for the very first creative writing class that's been made...


My 100 Challenges Challenge: A Fourth Of The Way There

Posted by TreacleTart in TreacleTart's Blog, 17 July 2015 - - - - - - · 131 views

Hello. Hello. Hello
So I joined the forums in February and shortly after joining decided to challenge myself to complete 100 consecutive challenges on the Challenge Thread. (At the time there were only a handful of challenges up and little did I know how hectic it could get.) I hoped that by creating this challenge for myself I might write more f...


The Beginning of the End

Posted by Gryffin_Duck in Essence Of Insanity, 17 July 2015 - - - - - - · 95 views

Last week I finished writing Albus Potter and the Pureblood's Secret (the sixth installment of my seven novel Albus Potter series). That means I have just one more novel left and the series will be complete. This is very bittersweet and of course brought about a lot of nostalgia and reminiscing, which I will now share with you.

First, a bit of backstory...
