The Squeamers; Where are they?

Posted by lexiatel in lexiatel's Blog, 24 July 2014 - - - - - - · 87 views

Here's something I have been thinking of lately. I only remember a few squeamish moments in the series. Like when Ron pulls out the wand covered with troll snot (I picture his film face right now, lol), and of course, when he's spitting up slugs.
 
But I have been thinking more and more about this... Today, I went to pick up this cutworm "thing". Ugh...

So I Was Hypnotized...

hypnotism and 1 more...

So I recently experienced one of the strangest things of my life thus far, so I thought it would be an interesting way to kick off my HPFF blog by talking about it.
 
I’m still reveling in the weirdness of what hypnotism is. I’ve seen hypnotist shows before, but I’ve always had some trouble believing in them completely. I recently a...

My Long Overdue Explanation To Unexplained Hiatus

Posted by Maelody in I Have An Idea So of Course I Should Write About It!, 19 July 2014 - - - - - - · 171 views

So a few months ago I said I'd tell everyone why I was gone in a few weeks after I had already been gone for a month or so. Yay me for priorities, right? Well, for those of you who have been wondering (there are a few of you, right? :3) I'm afraid my excuse isn't so great. I haven't been off saving the world, I haven't been having a super breakthrough wit...

The Lost Wolf, Chapter 4: A Reminder

Posted by maryhead in maryhead's Blog, 16 July 2014 - - - - - - · 65 views

The Lost Wolf, Chapter 4: A Reminder  Cassandra, however could not end her rambling speech, as a pretty angry man suddenly burst the door open, leaving the girl laying supine on the floor of the entrance hall. Bill's scowl, however, turned quickly into a worried frown when he realised who was the author of such a commotion.
".. Cassie? What are you doing here?! You look awful!"

What I Learned From Event Five

Posted by UnluckyStar57 in Celestial Musings, 13 July 2014 - - - - - - · 186 views

With the last horrifying seconds of Event Five behind us, I've decided to start typing again.
 
But instead of writing a review on a story, I'm writing a review about reviews. :p
 
I know that some of us really went above and beyond for this event, with review counts in the triple digits before the week was half over.  Some of us did what w...

Hello, everyone! This is Gabbie again, making another blog after what seems like a century ago. A lot of you have known me for a while  (Or have noticed me lurking here and there like a ghost) but I've noticed a lot of new faces on the forums lately so its nice to meet all you new people and for those of you that know me, I've missed you a lot! :shy:...

You have been working on this plot for quite a while, you've almost perfected it - you know exactly what's going to happen during that chapter, how every scene is going to be played and what things are going to affect the main characters decisions and personality.
 
All these great details, you've got it all figured out - how the mood of the story s...

challenge, winners

Hello!
 
Seriously, I don't even have an excuse as to why I'm so late announcing the winner of this challenge. I didn't mean to, I just sort of forgot and kept putting it off, even though I decided on the placings straight away. So, sorry to the three of you that entered that I left reviews for, telling you the results would be up that day. I lied. I...

"What's a G-I-F?" Being a Twenty-Something in the HP Fandom

Posted by my_voice_rising in pink teacup., 03 July 2014 - - - - - - · 269 views

Hey, it's been a while.
 
Let me begin by saying I am not at all trying to mock people for being of a younger generation of fans.   Nor am I trying to open a discussion containing age-specific information.  Let's keep it TOS-friendly, yes?

This week I attended a mandatory wine tasting for work (oh nooo free wine.)  A...

Okay, not really CONSTANT VIGILANCE!! but I did get your heart pumping. :happy:  As I write this, July 1 is nearly over.  A typically normal day, the start of the best month for birthdays (if I do say so myself), 122 days until NaNoWriMo begins...just a usual day.
 
Unless, you are this HPFFer.  July 1 marks my HPFF anniversary and thi...

-You don't even remember what a normal sleeping pattern looks like. 8am is totally a bedtime.
-You've replaced the 'useful' bookmarks on your browser with a myriad of HPFF ones (Bus timetables? Pfft. I'm not leaving the house)
-Your family/flatmates/significant other don't quite understand what's going on, except you keep muttering about points and Hogwa...

Writing a Blind Character

Posted by AlPotterFan in In A Nutshell, 29 June 2014 - - - - - - · 171 views

So for one of my fanfictions in another fandom, I'm writing this story in which the girl goes indefinitely blind due to an accident while at school. It's the first time that I've written about a character that's disabled and I was a little bit wary of the idea of first but decided to do it anyway because what the heck.
 
Now, I am someone that suffer...

It's all in your Perspective

point of view, writers tips

Readers and writers alike:
 
What is your preferred Point of View (henceforth, POV) in stories you read or write?  As a writer, I'm struggling with choosing the best one to accurately portray my characters thoughts and their interactions with the people around them.  I feel like first person POV comes the most naturally, as that is what we...

Third place goes to All Grown Up by LightLeviosa5443 (15+)! 
This one shot goes over what it's like for Tonks to watch Teddy grow up without her. Even though it's very short, it flows nicely and rings true to the characters. It's quick rea...

An Analysis of Reads

Posted by toomanycurls in toomanycurls - thoughts, theories, and conjecture, 21 June 2014 - - - - - - · 542 views

While we're waiting for Lockhart to judge the entries for Event 2 - I decided to do a fun analysis on read counts and reader attrition. I've seen quite a few people post about their read count looking whacky because it goes up and then down from chapter-to-chapter in a multi-chapter story. To start off with: here's a graph of the spread of reads throughou...
