7:40 pm - FanBoys at Prophecy 2007

Are any of you attending Prophecy in Toronto in a mere 18 days?!?!!? I'm going, I'm on a slash panel for formal programming, looking for fanboys to share a room with as well. I have a double at the Sheraton and already have one room mate, looking for 2 more. Let me know if you are going or if you're interested in a room share.

1:49 am - Hello, potentially dead comm -- Let's get active... over in some other comms. :titter:

Hello, folks.

It's been awhile since I've updated. I have some fic-exchanges that I'm busy busy writing, so I've been trying to focus on that. But I have to say that the slythindor100 comm is blowing up! Several excellent fics over there. If you haven't checked it out, please do so -- you won't be disappointed!

Also, I've taken over maintainer duties at two communities:




hpdrabble_dares is a dead community at the moment; the last post was july 2006, I think. I must say, I like the concept of the group, which is why I offered to take over when the original maintainers said they no longer had the time to do so. Basically, there's weekly dares, be it a pairing or a prompt or whatever, and you write/draw it. So, for instance, one challenge was a "Crookshanks" challenge... and there were three excellent responses! Another was a Fred/Cedric/George challenge and physixxx ended up writing a funny and sexy three-parter. redcandle17 responded to a Cedric/Viktor dare with gusto with "Warm Welcome"!!! Not to mention the Porn Haiku!!!!!!!! <-- hello? i'm SO not kidding!

So much potential in that community. Go check it out! Read some of the challenges and responses to get a feel for the comm, as I'm gonna keep it roughly the same. Plus, I've re-done the banner and lay-out and some side banners and I'm kinda proud of 'em. I'm going to re-start challenges in March, and even have monthly prizes of some sort to the participants (challengers and responders).

As far as harry_submits, I think that comm is relatively okay for now. I think I might do some fic exchanges or something or maybe even something called 'IDENTITY CRISIS', whereby writers will draw a request and artists will write one. I think there was something similar done last year... or maybe the year before, I forget. I want to do something that makes it more than just a 'hey, I wrote a fic and I'm x-posting it everywhere', you know what I mean? Any suggestions would be wonderful, of course.

But, in the meantime, yeah.... hpdrabble_dares wants you!

1:36 am - What would you guys think of an 'multimedia exchange'?

Just to get us posting and interacting with each other some (come on, fanboys, let's stick together!), how would you guys feel about a "Multimedia Exchange"...?

I say 'multimedia' because I know not all of us are writers or artists, but all have something we can 'exchange'... like, a 'mix tape', whereby all the songs either tell a story or simply "feels" like they're singing about your favourite coupling/pairing, or fanfic, or movie!canon, or whatever.

Or, it could be a poem, music uTube vid, whatever... "media" can mean so many things.

So, waddya guys think?

2:49 pm - introduction

I just found this community and wanted to introduce myself. I've been in HP fandom since the publication of GoF. I was at Nimbus and Lumos and was fortunate enough to be a presenter at both. I'm definitely headed to Prophecy this summer and am trying to finalize a proposal before the February 1 deadline! (Unfortunately, work schedules prevent me from going to Phoenix Rising or Sectus.)

My interests in HP fandom hit a couple of different areas. I enjoy both writing and reading fanfic, with a preference for gen or m/m slash. I also like exploring the educational uses of HP, though I haven't done nearly as much of that as I would like. Most of the time, though, I tend to lurk and just soak up as much HP-related stuff as I can. These days, the fandom has grown so large that the sheer volume of great stuff that's being produced is mind-boggling.

I was particularly excited to find this community, because in my experience, the vast majority of HP fandom (or at least my little slice of it) is female -- though that may have something to do with the fact that I gravitate towards slash and slash-friendly stuff. Anyway, I like the idea of seeing what a community of fanboys can do. Can't wait to see what happens.

3:02 pm - Shameless Self-Promotion

Hi!  Thanks toemmagrant01,who, when she found out I wasn't female recommended this community.

Since I saw a few posts requesting stories, I thought I would let you know that my page is chock full of them.  Be warned, my OTP is Harry/Ron, and all of my stories reflect that.  I have three multi-chapter stories, and a wide range of one-shots (more than a few with sequels).  Each story is rated for content.  I just didn't want to be tranferring so many of them over here, so feel free to stop at hedwigs_bane and check them out!  Thanks.

Major P.S.: All the links for the stories are at the top of the page.  The one-shots are in order, and should be read that way so you don't stumble onto a sequel before you read the original story.   If it's confusing, I'm sorry, but I am happy to offer guidance. 

current mood: Helpful

8:45 pm - Multi-Chapter eBooks

Last week there was a post recommending emmagrant01's Surrender The Grey as a multi-chapter fic. Well she has uploaded both Left My Heart and Surrender The Grey as eBooks. She's also included a text only version that does not include the artwork from the stories.

They can be downloaded HERE

If you haven't read either, be sure to read LMH first, as STG is the sequel to it. I'm planning to download both to my laptop, as I've only read bits and pieces of both stories.

1:10 am - Is this comm dead???

Say it ain't so!!!!

We need more boy!support in the HP fandom!!!

Ich heisse Brandon! Ich bin 29 Jahre alt und ich mag Harry Potter slash!!!

I am gay... a Dj... I'm writing some stuff now, hoping to start posting soon! I don't particularly like smut, but I do like gen-like fics where the slash content is incidental moreso than the focus. Kinda like what that Ian Anon dude was doing before he dropped off the face of fandom.

Other than that, I don't really have an OTP in particular. I like it all if it's done well. I'm more plot-oriented anyway.

So, if anyone has any good multi-chaptered fics that focus on plot, send 'em my way!

7:33 pm - Greetings!

Greetings from another fanboy!

I'm a 37 y/o gay physician in central New Jersey, originally from New York City. I started reading HP when book 2 came out, and have been a fan ever since. I discovered slash fanfic a couple of years ago (don't ask me how). I primarily ship Drarry, though I'm secondarily a puppyshipper. Ron and Hermione are OTP, just don't ask me to read hetporn.

I don't write. I did co-write two fics in Anne McCaffrey's Pern about 15 years ago, but have not written anything since. I wouldn't dare try writing Potterporn, as I have no confidence that I'd get the voices right (my Pern fics were all original characters). I do, however, beta-read for the ever-wonderful twistedm.

10:19 pm - Prophecy anyone?

Hey youze guys, I was wondering if anyone here is heading off to Prophecy next year? And if that was the case I was conteplating perhaps a panel or presentation of the fanboy's role in HP. I only came to this idea this past week, so its a bit in the earliest stages, but I wanted to know who was planning on going to Prophecy.

5:37 pm

I stumbled upon this little community and was quite pleased to find I am not the only fanboy out here. It's also kind of nice to call myself something that has boy in the name as I haven't been referred to as a boy for quite some time.

I've been involved in the fandom as an avid reader of great fanfic for over a year and only recently decided to de-lurk and open an LJ Account to comment on fics and thank the authors who put so much time and energy into their work. Along the way I have met some truly excellent people.

Sadly, I do not write. I have about as much creativity as a paperclip. I do, however, respect great writing and great writers and consider myself a member of their appreciative audience.

My OTP is Harry/Ron. The bond of friendship is simply too irresistable. I am mostly a fan of adult!harry/adult!ron pieces that explores the friendship and love between them. Unless I am looking specifically for a Harry/Ron fic, I don't ignore other work simply on the basis of the ship contained therein, het or slash. I also like Ron/Hermoine simply for the fact that if Harry can't have Ron, then Hermoine should. Oh yeah, I do like smut for smut's sake too, just for the record!

Well, that's a small bit of me as introduction. Friend me if you like. Ignore me if you like. I have a bit of a rec list at my journal page. Take a look if you want to find some truly wonderful writing.

Special thanks to our founder and maintainer arrmaitee.

1:17 am - Just Another Fan-Boy

A great big hey there from the new fan-boy on the block. I started reading the Harry Potter books after Prisoner of Azkabah had come out. But I didn't get involved in the fan-dom until I attended The Witching Hour in Salem, MA last year in October. It was at that time that I was dubbed a Total Fan-boy by emmagrant01.
