    y'all, let's speak plainly: the last year has been fucking hard, and we know that a lot of our members are really struggling in a lot of ways. we've heard from many members that the overall empathy and support this community gives to each other has been a bright spot for a lot of people in this very difficult time, which we're very happy to hear. thanks for being part of it; we appreciate all of you, and we'll continue to work to improve our community to make sure that that's reflected in everyo

Original Fiction

Original Fiction Recommendations Honestly, the fact that some people have the skill to write original fiction and the courage to share it never ceases to amaze me. Below, you'll find instances of our phenomenally talented OF writers from the FFT archives. I'm in awe of them. As always, let me know if you check these stories out and, if so, what you think!   sour dumplings and rice by @just.a.willow.tree Length / Completed: 7645 words / 3 chapters (incomplete) Genre(s): Angst,

seeing stars by crimson quill

seeing stars by @Crimson Quill THIS. THIS WHOLE THING. i mean this whole series but also THIS! i don't know if it’s the way abbi used colour through the fic to immerse you in lavender’s mood and mental state or the dreery relatability if life just going a little bit grey, but it touches a note in the most heartbreaking way. we’re seeing lavender in her post-parvati world, hating herself for letting her go and also feeling almost undeserving of the love she had, which in itself is gut wrench

LGBTQIA+

LGBTQIA+ Recommendations I'm bisexual, so LGBTQIA+ fics hold a special place in my heart. I especially love stories that show me a side of characters I haven't seen before. Please see below for particular fics that I think do the queer community justice. And let me know if you check these stories out and, if so, what you think!   Coming Around by @magnifique Length / Completed: 1103 words / 1 chapter (complete) Main Character(s): Nymphadora Tonks Representation: Genderfluid,

but did you provoke him? by ronsgirlfriday

but did you provoke him? by @RonsGirlsPatronus advisories: consent issues, domestic abuse.  🔪 this is a hard story. it's also a powerful story. snape has never been the most sympathetic of characters, to say the least, but in this melanie takes him and his family - and the glimpses we got of them in the original - and spins it out into this solemn, terrifying, spellbinding story. the themes running through it are disturbing and dark, but melanie deals with them with real, sensitiv

ink stains on my sheets by shadowycorner

ink stains on my sheets by @shadowycorner -- eli does such a great job at writing a broken hermione after the war in this that it filled me with such longing for something and i don't know for what. hermione feels guilty, she's running but i don't think even she realises what or who she's running from, but she's so used to constant, terrible and unrelenting danger that she simply doesn't even know how to exist without fighting against (for) something and trying to stay alive. and that

all your darkest roads by grumpy cat

all your darkest roads by @viking grumpy fox so this is slightly different from kris’s other dom and vic stories, here we focus on the two sisters' relationship. we find vic standing on the edge of a cliff outside their family home, and honestly those cliffs just SCREAM to be written about because there's just something about characters looking out over the sea and being full of thoughts. it’s beautiful and dark and extremely poetic, showing vic in the middle of a literal and mental storm,

the road not taken looks real good now by down-in-flames

the road not taken looks real good now by @down-in-flames -- this is a sad and heartbreaky jily featuring the combination of champagne problems and 'tis the damn season by taylor swift and honestly, taylor does such a brilliant job of weaving those two songs into a story, i felt like i was sitting in the car with james and lily, suffering along with them. the story is partly told in flashbacks which work really great in the context of the story, slowly leading us towards the moment tha

Draco Malfoy/Hermione Granger

Dramione Recommendations My absolute Harry Potter OTP is, as it's always been, Dramione! I adore both characters and feel they have such chemistry, especially in the hands of a good writer. Please see below for particular fics that I think do them so much justice. And let me know if you check these stories out and, if so, what you think!   In a World So Cold by @WindingArrow Length / Completed: 11,130 words / 7 chapters (complete) Genre(s): Angst, AU, Drama, Hurt/Comfort, Roma

you're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece by grumpy cat

you're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece by @viking grumpy fox aka grumpy cat 🕯️ kris' writing is always gorgeous: dark and deadly, with layers of angst and drama and a real flair for finding that line between going right to the edge making you as the reader hurt and struggle and feel almost too much with the characters, and falling over into just going too far. lily/sirius is almost a ship made for her writing alone: it's deep and messy and incredibly beautifully tragic -

six impossible things by something wicked

six impossible things by @something foxy -- deni decided to rewrite revival, her old louis/oc story that i was seriously hooked on and it's this - six impossible things (because lbr all the next gens are a lil mad, aren't they? all that fame and glory...). there's just one chapter up (deni write more pls soon you have to) but it pulls you right into the world of rona mckenna. it's obvious she's had some difficulties lately with her mental health, that's she's been through some stuff an

the color of violets by kuusi palaa

the color of violets+ by @kuusi palaa 🥀 there's something incredibly delicious about sinking your teeth into a twisting, turning, grim-dark mystery and that's exactly what this story is. it's dark, it's dangerous - there's this sense throughout it that something's not quite right but you can't say exactly what - and when you're rooting for Evan to get to the bottom of the mystery and solve the case, you almost don't want him to because you know solving it is only going to lead to somet

pomegranate seeds by @page thirteen. -- i legit can't tell you how damnably fluffy this original fic is and how seriously jealous makes me of the familial relationship(s) depicted in it. the story is told from the poc of liliana, whose friend's aisha's (later girlfriend's) grandmother, nanny is the grandmother we'd all love to have. she loves to cook for her family and cooking and feeding them is an act of love. she also loves liliana and embraces her as part of the family from the tim

this calls for a toast, so pour the champagne by @tinyporcelainehorses -- i love redemption fics, and i've always thought dudley definitely deserved one. so when i saw this story on the archives i couldn't resist starting it and i got hooked from the first couple of paragraphs - the idea that dudley is the muggle cho eventually gets together with is freaking brilliant and i love that take on cho's story (the crumbs we got from jkr at least). the two of them meet at harry's wedding and

Writing Conflict

Writing Conflict *originally published in the May 2018 edition of Hear Ye, Hufflepuff* Narratives need conflict to drive them forward, but choosing a conflict or problem for your characters to face can be difficult. There are two main types of conflict that you can incorporate into any story (internal and external) and within those are a few categories. Below, you can find examples of some of them. To choose the conflicts that work the best for your story, think about where you would

Quarantine Media Consumption

Hello, my dears! This is going to be a short entry, but I'd love to start conversations with anyone who's seen the shows I've watched in quarantine!   I don't know if they have enough interest to justify an entire thread in Other Fandoms, so I thought I'd just put them here and await your replies! To preface: I didn't watch much anime growing up (mostly just Sailor Moon since it was on Cartoon Network—and I 100% acknowledge that Amara and Michelle greatly influenced my sexual awakening), so

Some 2021 Resolutions

HAPPY 2021! 🎉 Usually, New Year's Resolutions are quite triggering for me because of the association with dieting and weight loss. But since March 2020 I've been in eating disorder recovery, and it's important that I don't focus on the dieting anymore. Christmas and New Year were still very difficult and triggered some panic attacks, but I was very determined to not focus 2021 around my usual fears. So, I decided to think of things that would really make me happy.    1. Finis

so this can all be blamed totally on @Aphoride and @pirate grumpy cat because i was asked to pick a cocktail for just one of my characters and now here we are with six which is all purley self indulgent but has also kept me entertained all afternoon. for anyone who doesn't know, i work in a cocktail bar, i also write characters who all like to excessivley drink because art imitates life, so here i've written out what their cocktail of choice would be along with recipes incase anyone would actual

earthquakes in croatia

i posted this on twitter already but i know some of you don't follow me there and my account is set to private so... two days ago, two earthquakes hit central croatia resulting in extensive damage in the towns of petrinja, sisak, glina and the villages around them. yesterday, an even bigger earthquake (6.3 magnitude) hit the same area. the entire city centre of petrinja is ruined with numerous collapsed buildings, it's the same in sisak and glina (in which 90% houses got destroyed), with h
