We at HPFF could not be more excited for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! Being that our users are from all over the world and will be reading/watching Cursed Child in a variety of ways (and at a variety of times), we are asking authors to please use the "contains spoilers" warning for any and all stories and chapters that contain spoilers for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. We have also added a new era called "Cursed Child" to be used for stories that are based off that part of canon. This is different from the "Next Generation" era which is generally used for stories that take place after Deathly Hallows canon. While we won't reject your stories for not using the spoiler warning or the Cursed Child era, we hope you will respect your readers' wishes not to be spoiled before they've watched/read Cursed Child. In the words of J.K. Rowling, keep the secret and don't be a Wormtail!

Thanks to those of you who donated to our March fundraiser, HPFF's immediate future is secure. While we didn't raise the target amount needed to keep us online for the next year, the funds raised will allow us to cover our overheads for the next 6-8 months approximately.

Once again March has rolled around and it's that time of year when we ask you to help us keep HPFF online.
HPFF has been here for 15 years and in all that time we've only had to ask for your help to keep us here since 2015. Here at HPFF we think it is a very special place, a one of a kind even. Yes there are other HP Fanfiction sites out there but I think you'll agree that none of them can hold a candle to HPFF.
While you can come along and read and write stories to you hearts content as well as enjoy yourself at the forums, have you ever stopped to think that although it may be free for you, someone has to pay to keep the site online. Servers, management, software, etc all cost money and unfortunately now that the HP fervour has died down a little, our advertising no longer pays all the bills, in fact it pays a bare minimum. Which is why once a year we ask you to help us out.
If you enjoy the site and would like to still be enjoying it for the next year and beyond, we'd ask that you make a small donation to help keep us online. If we can't get funding we will unfortunately have to close our servers and go offline. Over the years, several staff members have donated over ten thousand dollars to keep the site here for you (as well as working all the hours that God sends to run it), but they can't be expected to constantly top up our funds.
So If you'd like to make a donation please visit http://www.gofundme.com/hpff-2016 and thanks in advance.

We recently added a new section to our forums for authors to post character bios for their original characters and minor canon characters, as well as head canons for major canon characters. It is located in the Flourish and Blotts section of the forums, under the Hall of Prophecy. Please remember to read the rules thread before posting. If you aren't already a member of our forums, now is a great time to join! We hope you enjoy reading about all the fantastic characters our authors have come up with.

The queue will be closed to all non-Trusted Authors from Dec 23rd through Jan 3rd. We will re-open to new submissions on Jan 3rd, 2016. Please plan your new chapters and edits accordingly.
