Hello. I am Lunar Cycle, and I a fanfiction author and reader. I have an AO3 account, which is where most of my stories are located. I specialize in writing fics about my favorite characters (mainly Lupin, but Barty and Wormtail as well.)
Hi there! It’s wonderful to have you here with us. We’d love to read your work, soon. I hope you enjoy it here.

Hello! My name is Ann. I used to lurk on this site, way back in the day, but never found the courage to post anything! Recently, after realizing how dreadfully I missed writing, I decided to return to my first love, and participate as a writer this time too.

So, um, hi, my name is Melanie, and I'm full of feelings to be typing on an HPFF forum once again. I was a member here forever and a day ago, having joined around 2009. The last time I posted anything was probably 2012 or so. I always said I'd come back and never did, just putting it off, being overwhelmed IRL, and losing motivation until last year (I think) I received an email about the site being shut down (right? I didn't hallucinate that?).

Last month my sister randomly texted me and asked when I was going to finish one of her favorite WIP's. She said she would drop in on HPFF once in awhile to see if I'd ever come back. I told her the site was shut down, she sent me the link to my page and I just could have died, I was so shocked to see all my stories still there! I think that was the nudge I needed.

This month I'm doing NaNoWriMo, working on an original fic, and I've hit a wall with it and my mind keeps wandering back to here, where I have WIP's that are near and dear to my heart that I've never finished. I'm eager to get acquainted with these new forums and meet some new friends (maybe even find some old ones?)

I love writing Ron (see: username), but possibly even more than that, I love writing Percy, a rich character who doesn't get nearly enough attention. Two of my beloved WIP's are about Percy, and I'm currently working on updates. I also like writing Snape and exploring new ways to depict that whole hot mess. And once in a while I like to do a one-shot about more minor characters or non-canon pairings.

Reading back over my old fics is interesting. Some I still love as much as I did nearly a decade ago, and some have serious issues and I may end up reworking some or just plain taking them down. But it's a great process of learning and growing!

I'm so glad your sister let you know the site was back up. It's wonderful to stumble across old work and remember how you felt when you were writing it. We're glad to have you back with us and looking forward to your new work and reading what you've published so far. :)

hi guys! my name is kat and I used to be a semi-active member on hpff (and the forums) in 2010-2012 and then again in 2015 and here I am again??
I'm 23 years old (even though I just almost wrote 22??) I live in Chicago and have a huge variety of artistic-lean hobbies.

I discovered HPFF when I was NINE and joined after deathly hallows came out because I was curious about the next gen of kids! I actually had no idea that other fandoms also had fanfiction for a few years after the fact, and I definitely credit the site for introducing me to a life-long love of writing, even if I would rather cut off my foot than link anyone to my old fic :censored:

I'm a firm Slytherin, I dream of being a novelist one day, and I mostly write on ao3 these days (sorry, mods) though I've been revisiting some old favs on hpff this year, which is what prompted me to remake.

things I like: harry potter, taylor swift, painting, kid shows, marvel movies, soapy tv shows, youtube, vine, one direction, buying books

nice to be back :)

Two things:
  1. Welcome back!
  2. The soundtrack to like...80% of my fanfic writing is a Taylor Swift song. :)

Thank you! And tbH that is such a mood, I'm always trying to make my characters be the stars of tswift songs..what were your top three favs on lover?
In no particular order: Cruel Summer, Death by a Thousand Cuts, and Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince. Honorable mention to Lover, Paper Rings, Daylight, and I Think He Knows. I love Soon You'll Get Better, but I cannot listen to it without sobbing, so I'll put it in its own category. How about you?

If anyone's still around o/ I'm Monika, and I take up a lot of issues with HP, but enjoy the world building, so I generally use it as my playground for writing fantasy. I wanted to gain a wider audience for a current fic I'm writing, and was wondering how active the site is :0 I'm stupid desperate for validation, lmao.

Was also wondering what the general writing culture is around here? As well as how to upload an avatar on the site and/or a cover image for the story?

The forums a bit quiet. This site was originally owned by someone else and shut down, then new owners took over. Within saying that, people are still posting to the archive regularly. Once you've posted your story, add it to the right forum for people to see you've posted and you can request reviews.

This is really helpful, actually!! Thanks :D I'll continue to update it and poke around for a good forum.

Hello, and thank you for allowing me to participate!
I've been writing Fan Fiction for various Fandoms since my early teens, and Harry Potter Fan Fiction since the publication of "Philosopher's Stone". So happy to find a site that is up and working, and I hope to soon upload not only all of my past works, but new content as well... Robert is the name, De Hwyl is my Welsh Nom De Plume, meaning "Of Cheer". It is also the Welsh Feminine nomenclature, making it mean "One who makes the ladies laugh" -- or "One who is laughed at by ladies." So enough language lecturing -- and back to writing again -- I've revived a project that I started almost 15 years ago, and hope to see through to finalization this time; a three-novel set encompassing an Alternate Universe telling of Harry's sixth and seventh years at Hogwarts, and some time beyond. The middle book, "Harry Potter and the Philtre of Promise" has been finished and is being uploaded chapter by chapter as I correct some minor details with the information I didn't have at the time I wrote it. The first book, "Harry Potter and the Rampage of Ages", is half-finished and has been in limbo for the past eight years, but I've started on additional chapters to finish it. The third book, "Harry Potter and the Legacy of Evil" is outlined and awaiting writing time. Looking forward to reading other's works as well as getting back into the Fandom.
