Trusted Author Applications

HPFF validators and archive admins are always on the look out for new Trusted Authors, but just in case we’ve missed someone, we are opening up applications for new Trusted Authors. If you meet the following criteria and wish to submit yourself for possible TA status, please send an email to with a link to your author page and the email address that is associated with your account (if it differs from the one you used to send the email). Applications will be open until July 26th. Please keep in mind that TA status is a privilege that can be removed at any time if an author is found to have broken site rules and/or the terms of service. You must meet this criteria to be considered: -Have been an archive member for at least six months (join date prior to January 12th, 2016). -Have at least ten validated chapters. -Your past five chapters must not have had a rejection, for any reason other than formatting. -No prior suspensions. Please note that the above is no guarantee of TA status. Staff reserve the right to deny TA status. If you receive TA status, you will be notified. If you do not receive TA status, you will not be notified. If you do not receive TA status, we encourage you to keep submitting chapters consistently and reapply next time. If you have any questions, please email Gryffin_Duck at the above email address.

Cursed Child Spoilers

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!

Recent Fundraiser update.

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.

Character Bios Section

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.
