    June Activities 2010

    More information on The Category Patrolling Project can be found here..

    This month's featured category is "Post-Hogwarts." Link to category.

    A request: When you post the summary, could you please post it in italics instead of in quotes? The reason for the request is that when I try to copy/paste your posts to this thread (I basically click on the 'quote' button and take all the content), the summary doesn't show up as it is in quotes. The thing is, I then have to copy/paste individual summaries and match them up with the links and other information, which leaves a lot of space for error/mismatch of summaries. I'd be grateful if you post the summaries in italics instead, which will work easier for me. (And, if necessary, I'll add the quote tags when I repost the stories to the other thread.)

    Post with these details, please:

    Summary:

    The whole world has gone crazy, tipped on its side, changes happening so quickly that Harry can’t keep track of them all. He isn’t at the centre of it anymore – he’s drifting peacefully somewhere on the very outer rim, and he likes it this way, and he never wants to go back.

    He has a dream one night. Soft hands lift him out of his bed. He opens his eyes and their faces are like maps of a country he’s never been to but has always wanted to go. They say they’ll take him to a place where all he has to is breathe.

    He says okay.


    After Voldemort's defeat, Harry struggles to come to terms with love, death, and the end of innocence. One-shot. Rated for very, very mild sexual implications.

    My review for Russia's To Tell The Truth is here.

    Looking over your author's page, I noticed you tend to write OCs or more obscure characters rather than the ones we know and love. What do you like about the lesser-known characters, or what do you dislike about the well-known ones?

    Which fic of yours has been the easiest to write? The hardest?

    And similarly, your favourite and least favourite?

    (I tend to find that my favourites are the ones that were hardest to write, but I don't know if that's everyone or just me being odd. >.>)

    My review is here for Forty Days a Charm

    What inspires you to write your stories? Do you find specific things, or are they really just random?

    You wrote a lot of fics for challenges, is that because the prompts were too good to give up, or did you just want to enter them?

    Do you find it hard to write with a prompt or easier?

    How does it feel to be featured author?

    Oh GOD Queen O' SPEW, WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY did you choose that fic? WHY?

    I like OCs and obscure characters because I feel like they're more open for me to experiment with. I would NEVER EVER write Harry because I feel like he is JKRs character and I would never feel that my portrayal of him was accurate enough. I like OCs and obscure characters because I can make them my own, really. I also think that it is SO much more interesting reading about obscure chararacters because you don't know what to expect.

    The easiest fic to write, for me, was 'Forty Days a Charm' I think. It kinda flowed the best out of all my fics. Hardest to write was 'To Tell The Truth' i only submitted it because it was for a challenge, I was never happy with it.

    My favourite fic has to be 'I Never', it was my first one accepted and the reviews that I got for it made me want to write for the rest of my life

    My least favourite fic is of course 'To Tell the Truth' (so the opposite to you, Jen LOL) I hate hate hate hate it. Which is why I wish you'd picked ANY other fic to review >.>

    Thanks for the review and the questions, Jen! *squish*
