Our winning matchups are as follows:

With 37.9% of the vote, Neville/Luna will be the ship for our lead snake slayer!  Please please, we need a Luna writer to send in application or give me a wink!  You know who you are (I'm begging, begging!)

With 44.8% Draco is on his lonesome, unable or unwilling to nurture a relationship with the weight of wrath upon his shoulders.

With 59.3% it looks like LavLav is with Mr. Finnigan, and will be there to sooth his hurts and complain about the lack of showers in the RoR.

With 44%, Pansy has dropped Draco like a hot potato, and is taking up with the suave Blaise.  With she has to keep his eyes on her instead of following Ginny?

And with 95.5% Hufflepuffs Hannah and Ernie will be there to support each other!

As for the other ships of note, don't be disappointed, as unrequited love or a wandering eye can still be mentioned here and there!

Please submit your application to be part of a character writing team ASAP!

Hello all, just a quick note that the SHIPPING POLL ends TOMORROW Friday 8/24.  Please vote if you haven't and encourage others to join the community to vote as well!

Also, we are still accepting applications for lead writer and helpers, and will for another week.  Please take a look at the application and send yours in ASAP.  We've got some great applications so far and I'm really excited to see how things will be shaping up when things get off the ground in September!

Lead Character Applications!!!! [Aug. 16th, 2007|03:31 pm]
Year Seven at Hogwarts, the other sides of Deathly

First, a remind that the SHIPPING POLL is still running, and will continue until August 21.  Please VOTE!!!


Now,  We will be accepting applications for LEAD CHARACTER WRITER for the next two weeks.  If you wish to be the lead writer for a particular character, or wish to be on the character team that provides insight, support and beta-ing for the Lead Writer, please submit an application.  If you know a writer you think would be perfect for representing a particular characters PoV, please encourage them to join and submit an application.  When writers and teams are chosen, then bids will be made in the time for various scenes to be completed, as to which characters point of view the scene will take place (i.e. do we read about the attempt to get the fake Sword from Neville, Ginny or Luna's PoV).

Note, not all characters will have major scenes in their PoV.  The main characters to be represented by PoV will likely be: Neville, Ginny, Luna, Draco, Snape, Lavender, McGonagall, Hannah or Ernie, unless a case can be made for other characters.


Comments will be screened, so applications will be seen only by the moderators.

SHIPPING POLL TAKE 2-the other when went nuts [Aug. 14th, 2007|10:42 am]

Yes, I'm late!  Yes I'm sorry!  But I had to take folks to the ER and lots of other stuff.  Sometimes, you just really want a Time Turner.  Hmm...plot bunnies plot bunnies

Without further ado, I open the SHIPPING POLL!
Ties will mean that the plot should probably take into account both ships.  The moderators reserve the right to sort out any confusion, but will explain any rationale to the best of their abilities after the fact.
Also, applications to apply for lead character writer will be up by the end of the week!!!!!  Check your f-list for more details soon.

Reminder for Shipping and Some proposed Rules [Aug. 2nd, 2007|04:34 pm]
Year Seven at Hogwarts, the other sides of Deathly

No, I have not dropped off the face of the earth.  I wanted to let up on the community posts for a bit, and allow DH to sink in a bit more to everyone's consciousness.  I also am battling vertigo at the moment, and feel like crap.  But enough about me.

First of all, this is a reminder to go and visiting this thread on "shipping debates" before I post the official vote on August 8. 

After the voting is completed (I figure having a week in which to vote). Once these are chosen, I will be posting a finalized timeline, and key scenes for the story.

The moderators and other have been talking about the best way to go about writing a comprehensive story, and not just a series of disconnected fics.  We propose that instead of volunteering for a single scene, we have authors volunteer for specific characters.  I will be posting a thread in a few days to start taking application for characters. 

To be considered to be the "lead" writer for a character, you need to show that you will stick around, are willing to work with others, and have written something within the HP fandom in the past, or are willing to submit a sample fic to the moderators.  You must also be willing to write the ships that are decided on by the community at large (and I pray that's not too weird....canon people, canon).  Overall, I think this will be more a gen story than a shipping story, so that shouldn't be too difficult.

If you want to participate, but are daunted by the task of writing a character all the way through, or are a complete novice at writing but really interested, you can become part of a group surrounding a particular character or scene and work with the lead author about your ideas and perhaps help beta in that area.  Scenes involving multiple major character may be dominated by one particular characters point of view, but the leads for the other major characters involved should be consulted about any major plot points occurring in the scene.  All disputes will be moderated by the moderators (heck, that's our title, darnit).

I welcome any comments about this proposal, please make your opinions known.  I don't want to chase anyone off, but I also want to have us try and come up with a really great story.  Writing by committee is not easy, as can be seen by the number of crappy TV shows, but sometimes it can be a beautiful thing.

Shipping Debate is open [Jul. 23rd, 2007|01:33 pm]
Year Seven at Hogwarts, the other sides of Deathly

Sorry for the spamming today, but I'd like to get this out here for discussion.

Ok, I really want everyone to be calm about this.  I am going to list those potential 'ships that could be explored in this story.  Obviously, we can’t have them all.  Please be nice about this.  I’m going to list those I can think of.  Then I’m going to add a comment with my personal preferences, and the arguments for those.  I encourage everyone to add their own comments, trying to sway others to their point of view.  Flaming will be deleted and put your membership at risk.  On August 8, I will put up a post for voting on potential ships for several major characters.  Community members may vote there as to what ships will win.  The overall story will remain PG-13, but outtakes at higher ratings may be added.  I don't think shipping should be the main focus of the story, but it will play an important part of the lives of people under immense strain.

 

 

Unless part of the vote and not countermanded by the vote, author may add references to other relationships to be added to the Grimoire

Plot points Debate [Jul. 23rd, 2007|01:28 pm]
Year Seven at Hogwarts, the other sides of Deathly

I'm going to start a discussion of the kinds of scenes and plot points you'd like to see happen in Year Seven at Hogwarts.  Below is a list of things I would like to have incorporated into the claims list and the Grimoire.  I will be updating this as people comment with their ideas.
The moderators are also talking about trying to keep one author or a small collaborative group of authors working on a particular characters PoV, a little bit like a RPing situation.  I'd like to know your opinions on that.  We need a way to keep flow and continuity changes consistent.

Timeline and Cast [Jul. 23rd, 2007|10:36 am]

This is the current state of the timeline from DH and the cast mentioned in DH.  The timeline will grow as plot points are discussed, and the cast will grow larger (I'm purusing the lexicon at the moment for more Slytherins and younger folks in Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, etc)

First Draft of Rules [Jul. 23rd, 2007|10:30 am]
Year Seven at Hogwarts, the other sides of Deathly

naiad8
[Current Mood |stressedstressed]

Somebody help me with icons, please!

Rules

 

The goal of Year Seven at Hogwarts is to come up with a single coherent story regarding the events at Hogwarts during the time of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, from the beginning of the school year through the events of Voldemort’s defeat (and maybe a bit afterward).

That said, this is not your typical fic-a-fest, and it will require a lot of discussion and working together.  But here at LJ, that’s the best part, isn’t it?

 

 

We want to work together and maintain a sense of a common goal at all times.  Please be kind!
