    thank you all for your patience! we're going to announce the winners at the top of the blog, but this year i decided to get kind of extra and make personalized awards for every finalist as well as our winners, so rather than include them throughout, i've just put them at the bottom of the post, organized alphabetically by username. ūüíĖ y'all are incredible. ¬† best action adventure: ūü•á planetary boundaries by @lilypadi ūü•ą project azkaban by @Unwritten Curse ūü•Č the fifth house by @Amerip

    Recommendations FAQ

    By abhorsen plague doctor.

    How do I contribute to the rec section? To contribute, you'll need to start your own rec blog by going to "Create Blog" and then selecting whatever category you want to make recs in.

You can click a tag directly in a rec, or you can go to +this link. Typ

    Black History Month: Essential Black Authors to Read | The Daily Show's List

    By toomanycurls

    One hallmark of any Black History Month is getting a reading list. More important than a reading list is knowing what people have thought of books or if they are planning to read any on a given list so:  Here is a list transcribed from Essential Black Authors to Read | The Daily Show. I'd love to know which people have read or are planning to read from this list or from any list on Black History Month.  STAMPED: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Ibram Kendi and Jason Reynolds  M

a relationship between the amount of fanfiction and the engagement you can expect?

i've been thinking about this a lot lately so i wanted to put it out somewhere into the world. i think there's a relationship between the amount of fanfiction available for a fandom and the level of interaction or attention that you can expect from that fandom. i haven't written enough fanfiction for other smaller fandoms or bigger fandoms to be able to say this with absolute certainty but i do notice a trend between the amount of engagement i get in the harry potter fandom versus other fandoms

Happy Pride Month!

Happy Pride Month!¬† ¬† And I have some fun news... ¬† I'm non-binary!¬†¬† And I now go by the¬†name Jerri (which means spear ruler)¬†‚öĒÔłŹ ¬† It's been a fun journey of self-realisation and giving myself permission to love and accept myself.

Hyphens, En-Dashes, and Em-Dashes

Hyphens, En-Dashes, and Em-Dashes *originally published in the November 2020 edition of Hear Ye, Hufflepuff* There are three lengths of dashes, and, while it may seem overly pedantic, knowing the different uses for each can greatly help improve the clarity of your writing. So, how do you use each type?   Hyphen Hyphens are the shortest and most commonly used dash. Their primary purpose is in creating compound words or phrases, especially in an adjectival sense (e.g., “well-exe

Avoiding the Overuse of Epithets

Avoiding the Overuse of Epithets *originally published in the January 2021 edition of Hear Ye, Hufflepuff* This month's advice concerns eschewing pronouns in favor of the overuse of epithets. Now, first off, let's define our terms. An epithet is an adjective or descriptive phrase expressing a quality or characteristic of the person or thing mentioned. For example, if talking about Harry Potter, an epithet might be, "The green-eyed boy blinked in confusion." A pronoun is a word that r

some sorting trends in my writing that i feel lowkey weird about

so!! i have three couples i've really written a significant amount (50k+ words) about: rose/scorpius, astoria/draco, and victoire/gallagher. and i realized something that made me feel lowkey weird. so i like to think that these characters are not carbon copies of each other. i'm fairly certain they're not. but now that vic is no longer with teddy, there's a real weird pattern. (i use sortinghatchats to sort - rundown +here but basically your primary is your "why" and your secondary is your

i haven't been on the shadow and bone train as long as everyone else, i only recently got into it in the past couple of years at the latest but i immediately knew it was something i would've been obsessed with in high school and i still enjoyed it immensely. so i was beyond excited when i heard it was being turned into a show AND WHEN THEY ANNOUNCED BEN BARNES AS THE DARKLING.

fearless (taylor's version), ranked

we all know the drill at this point. i will rank the things, i will ask you to fight me about the things in the comments. let's do this. i ranked this without looking at my original track ranking, so there will almost certainly be discrepancies. not only does my taste for certain songs tend to shift (there are some that remain at the top no matter what, but the middle-bottom tends to see a lot of movement), but there are some tracks that i think i just like better on this rerecording than i

A small step towards justice. Many leaps back in rights. Thoughts on a conviction.

Yesterday a murderous police officer was convicted on three counts for the brutal murder of George Floyd. It was historic. It was cleansing. We are still starving for justice.  I moved to Minneapolis in October 2020 and live blocks north of the site where George Floyd was murdered. I've taken the kids there and explained why GFS is important, why it is tragic, and most importantly -- that his life mattered. As a new resident of the Twin Cities I could not relate to how traumatic last summer
