The Bard's Dream

At the time of the Roman invasions, a young druidess, Elidan, discovers both her past, and her new destiny in shaping the future. Charged with protecting secret artifacts of the druids, and from Atlantis, as atonement for crimes in a previous life, she flees north to Anglesey, the sacred island of the druids. With the aid of the Sidhe, she reaches the druid stronghold, ahead of the Roman legion. But the Romans also seek the power of the artifacts, and will stop at nothing to discover them.

So... because this is about writing, I figured it'd be an okay place to post this (even if no one has posted in a while). If not, feel free to delete this post or tell me to remove it.

I'm involved with a new HP fanfiction archive that just opened today. It accepts all stories up to an equivalent of PG-13 and all pairings save bestiality and student/teacher. If you need a place to post your writing besides LJ, this would be it.

It's called Spiraling Stairways: http://spiralingstairs.net

I just figured I'd mention it. Thanks!

12:51 pm - Challenge 2: Parvati and Divination

justams
I figured it was time to post a challenge here again, or just post anything at all really. So yeah, here's a new challenge. Might not be too exciting for everyone, but hopefully some will give it a try. I think I will myself. :)

Parvati stops believing in Divination.
The rest is up to you. If it's just temporary insanity from her, or long-lasting is up to you. So is the length of the fic, but it would be nice if you made it a little longer then a drabble. :)I wanted to make a minor character challenge, as I always find them very interesting.

if anyone have any ideas to challenges, let us know! And continue posting your fics here, or asking for help to them, even if things are a little slow right now.

1:25 pm - Beta

pinchofthyme
My name is Thyme, and I am a writter. I am currently writting a Charlie Weasley/Katie Bell fic (I love weird pairings like that) and I need a beta. Is there anyone here who would like to help me?

If you want to see samples of my older work (from a few years ago) go to here though that website is very out of date I'm afraid. If you can help me please post here.

9:42 pm - Chapter 2. The dinner.

madeleneg

The second chapter of my fanfic But I don't care. I have a beta reader now, and I just send it to her to beta it, but I just couldn't resist posting it, even thought it's not beta read yet. I will post the beta read version as soon as it's done, or change it to it then. But you now, please look away from the spelling and grammar mistake you find.

Title: But I don't care. Chapter 2, The Dinner.
Rating: This one is PG I guess. But it will be higher in the coming ones.
Pairings: Remus/Tonks.
Spolier: YES! It's spoiler from book 6.
Summary: Both Remus and Tonks thinks they are gonna eat a good meal with the Weasley family, but when they notice that the other one is there too, it all change.
A/N: Beta read version of this story will come soon.
If you didn't read chapter one, you can find it here: Chapter 1

10:24 pm - Memory organising/affiliates

justams
I have organised the memories for this community, so that it will hopefully be easy to look for old fics and discussions.
And I wonna ask everyone to be specific in the subject line when posting. It makes it easier that way. Especially discussions and things like that.
Some day soon I'm planning on making banners and codes for this community, and go searching for affiliates. If anyone of our members have any communities/sites that are HP and/or writing related and want to be affiliates, just leave a comment here with a link.

8:55 pm - Inspired by the new book?

justams
First of all I wonna say to people that please do not post spoilers! If you have anything to say about the Half-blood Prince, put it behind a cut, and with a spoiler warning.

Were you inspired?Collapse )

11:17 am - Fight/Action scenes

justams
I need some advice on fight/action scenes in general, not just harry potter.
I've been writing lots of fics for a tv-show called The Tribe, and most of them have some sort of action scene. But the thing is that I'm never happy with any of them.
How do you write everything that's happening in a short period of time without making it too much like a summary, or without making it sound like people are just standing around waiting for their turn to do something? Any suggestions or advice?

current mood: okay

9:23 pm - Question.

inkflowers
As the release of HBP is drawing near, what do you wish to see more of in the book? I know I want to see more of Percy Weasley and his Rebellion.

Will Harry be angrier, angstier, or just weirder? XD Interesting to think about.

4:30 am - Where should I go with this?

hazel_eyes_86
A person on my board wanted me to finish a story for her that an author had abandoned but I have no idea where to go with it that isn't too cliché, what do you guys think?

11:51 am - Eep, dead community?

inkflowers
Since there hasn't been much posting, what's everyone up to? Are they going to do much writing over the summer?

Oooh, summer booklists! Recommend a book - it's always fun. :) I recommend Eragon by Christopher Paolini, which is about a boy who finds a dragon egg and then befriends the dragon that hatches from it. And then gets himself into a mess of adventure. The author was fifteen when he started writing it, and nineteen when it was published. (You can colour me jealous.)

Go on, it's your turn. ;)

9:00 pm - Weird questions.

inkflowers
All right, people, I have a challenge for you! A fun one, hopefully.

Describe what you think these characters look like, however short or long you prefer:

Vincent Crabbe
Ron Weasley
Seamus Finnigan
Professor McGonagall
Professor Snape

Also, of which character would you like to see in more fic? And why is it popular to write so porny fics in the HP fandom at the moment? Just wondering.

10:49 pm - Going away

justams
Hello everyone!
Sorry for not being very active here. I'm going away to Greece for three weeks, and just wanted to say bye first. Maybe I'll have some ideas for this community when I get back. In the meantime, I'm sure inkflowers will keep things going.

And so this isn't completely spam, I have a question.

What is your biggest pet peeve? Or the most common or annoying mistake you see? Could be anything, like characters being OOC, or spelling mistakes... whatever annoys you, not only in HP fanfic, but any kind of stories.

current mood: tired

4:42 pm - Dialogue

anyotherknight
Mods, if I'm barking up the wrong tree, just delete.

I've got a problem regarding dialogue punctuation (which myself and three betas have all missed whilst tearing apart my work). What do you do when you need (or just want) to split two sentences with a dialogue tag, but they aren't different enough to warrant a new paragraph?
