quietheartedfsc: Hello, and welcome to the Harry Potter Panel
jazwriter: hello *waves*
alezabee: hi there
quietheartedfsc: If our panelists would like to introduce themselves. Jazzy, will you start?
BetweenLove_n_Hate: hi. sorry my attention is going to be torn between this and the OUAT panel but totally thrilled to be here.
jazwriter: Hi, I’m jazzy. lol I’ve written a few HP stories, one a crossover with DWP
quietheartedfsc: winter, you’re next.
Kaqlittle: oh I love that one.
jazwriter: I ship Hermione/Minerva
blackgrl71: Greetings! blackgrl here or you can just call me Nic. i’ve written mostly x-over Harry Potter fics
winter156: Hey everyone, I’m winter…same as jazzy, I’ve written a couple HP stories and totally ship Hermione/Minerva
quietheartedfsc: It’s been interesting to me that folks seem to ship H/M or run screaming the other way..
winter156: Well it’s because of the age difference I think…Minerva is up in age
jazwriter: I have to say I am very loyal to that couple
Jaely: I’ve not really even read any H/M stories…
blackgrl71: thanks to jazzy, she totally turned me onto Minverva/Hermione
jazwriter: the age makes for a wonderful challenge–bridging the gap
Gin Akasarahsmom: I don’t think I could ship them from the movie… but I’m told the Minerva in the book is much younger looking than they had her in the movie
Gin Akasarahsmom: so I think of younger Maggie Smith and i’m good
jazwriter: @blackgrl71 lol–woot
quietheartedfsc: The book has her looking around 35
jazwriter: true–I do picture her younger (and I make her age backwards by the end of The Cerulean Dragon)
Gin Akasarahsmom: so my imagination can meet somewhere between the movie and the book and I’m good
alezabee: Really? I didn’t know that. I was already shipping it, but now hell yeah
shesgottaread: yeah, Jazzy’s explanation allowed me to buy into H/M
winter156: I think Hermione and Minerva just fit on an intellectual level. At least, a lot more than Hermione and Ron
jazwriter: the way I write them, though, they deelop a strong connection thaat defies age–and it helps that Hermione is so brilliant and ahead of everyone else in her age group
Jaely: ugh on the whole idea of Hermione and Ron…
Kaqlittle: I dislike rons character greatly
Gin Akasarahsmom: Yes… Hermionie Ron just makes me go ewwww
winter156: I kind of like Ron, just not with Hermione
quietheartedfsc: That’s a bit brainiac marrying a mushroom
blackgrl71: yeah, i’ve always found that Hermione/Ron were totally unbelievable
jazwriter: I’m with you on that, although winter wrote a sympathetic Ron
alezabee: I’m ok with H/R in cannon, but I prefer non canon pairings in fic
raiderl_1: So what do you all think of Hermione and Bellatrix?
Gin Akasarahsmom: LOL.. I don’t
quietheartedfsc: Ok, now that’s just wrong….
Jaely: I don’t mind a sympathetic Ron he is just not right for Hermione
jazwriter: I like to think characters mature as they get older, but Ron didn’t show much of that
blackgrl71: like Minvera, i grew to really enjoy Hermione/Bellatrix
Gin Akasarahsmom: I don’t do any pairings other than Hermione/Minerva
raiderl_1: it is most of the time but KuraiBites – Those Gilded Chains We Wear is really an interesting read
quietheartedfsc: only if there’s wizarding prozac
Jaely: Oh god I’ve tired to read a few Hermione/Bellatrix and I just see bad BDSM…
Gin Akasarahsmom: it’s kinda creepy though… I mean.. really?? Bellatrix? She’s psycho!
Kaqlittle: I like some of the hermione Bella fics
mayIreadtoday: I’m not a fan of Hermione/bellatrix but I read Hermione/Luna
winter156: Hermione/Ballatrix is tough to sell, but some people have done a great job of it
raiderl_1: Yeah she is and this story is a complex study of it
claudialover4: I think I like H/M rather than Hermione/Bellatrix…she’s a bit too creepy.
quietheartedfsc: I think a really good writer can sell ALMOST anything.
Gin Akasarahsmom: yes.. it would depend on the writing… if well written anything can be good
raiderl_1: i’d recommend it’s not finished yet and loooong
Meneldur: Well, it would have to develop Bellatrix beyond a psychopath into why she is one, if she is
Kaqlittle: I like the fics here hermione goes back in time and meets Bella
jazwriter: I agree with QH–a good writer can sell just about anything, but the writer has to believe in it to get others to
raiderl_1: and that’s what it does without gratuitous bdsm
Gin Akasarahsmom: true Jazzy..
mayIreadtoday: A good writer can sell me on a chapter but if the pairing doesn’t matter sense that’s all I’ll read
blackgrl71: but i tend to shy away where Bellatrix is aall psycho instead of exploring and enhancing other facets of her personality
Alkmaion: Hm, I´m pondering a Fleur/Angelina story, with Angelina replacing Cedric in the tournament
raiderl_1: don’t mind fleur/herm stories but not a lotof good ones
Kaqlittle: I agree
blackgrl71: i’ve always been a big believer that HP -verse is easy to blend w/ BTVS. Willow seems a natural for almost any of our fav HP favs
Jaely: I’ve recently found Fluer/Hermione and that pairing really shocked me at how well it can be pulled off.
mayIreadtoday: I agree Hermione/Fleur when it works
Meneldur: Why does it seem that Fleur Hermione is one of the preferred pairing for femslash?
winter156: There are a couple pretty incredible Fluer/Hermione fics out there
alezabee: yes to Hermione/Fleur
raiderl_1: what’s best Fleur/Hermione you’ve read?
winter156: Because they are hot
Meneldur: Anything with Fleur is naturally hot
quietheartedfsc: Nic, did you have a question?
Jaely: Entwined and Entangled
mayIreadtoday: I’d guess there’s more HG/MM than HG/Fleur
quietheartedfsc: That depends on where you read, I think
quietheartedfsc: ffnet is very HG/MM centric
Meneldur: But I’ve been notiving there are certain niches
quietheartedfsc: P&P leans more to other pairings
mayIreadtoday: I like Entwined but with Entangled it’s pissing me off that their relationship doesn’t affect canon events
raiderl_1: who wrote Entwined and Entangled Jaely?
blackgrl71: actually my question was answered. but yes, i’m a huge fan of fleur and fleur/hermione fics — but there aren’t nearly enough good ones
mayIreadtoday: I hang out mostly on ffnet for Harry Potter
Meneldur: I see alot fo Fleur/Hermione, Minerva/Hermione, and Ginny/Hermione
Meneldur: I’ve seen very few other femslash pairings
alezabee: there are a few for Ginny/Tonks
Meneldur: And Entangled/Entwined was written by Metal Dragon Kiryu, if I am not mistaken
raiderl_1: I’ll read any of the pairings if it’s well written (not het)
quietheartedfsc: Like with any fandom, I think writers tend to be very true to OTPs
mayIreadtoday: Yes: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/683003/Metal_Dragon_Kiryu
Kaqlittle: there r a few hermione/pansy
raiderl_1: cool thnx I think I read it?
Jaely: Metal Dragon Kiryu
jazwriter: that is the challenge, raider–finding well-written stories
raiderl_1: That’s right, got frustrated with it though I think, can’t remember why though
Meneldur: Although it’s sometimes fun to read abit of trash
Kaqlittle: yes or finished ones
mayIreadtoday: I would love to read a Hermione/Tonks pre-OotP so Harry hasn’t been picked up yet but they’re in HQ
quietheartedfsc: then let’s start by recing a few of your favs
raiderl_1: Okay, u r right but I do have a very trashy side and liidg will never disappoint…
blackgrl71: i’ve beent trying to find a good Hermione/Tonks fic, but there are so few of them
Kaqlittle: anything by tigertales and tanithw
jazwriter: when I first wrote HP, I gave my list of recs…converting people over from DWP to HP…lol
winter156: @raiderl_1 back to the Hermione/Fluer pairing: Golden Haze by anamatics is pretty awesome fic
quietheartedfsc: I’ll add asoulsdream to that, Kaq
mayIreadtoday: I love Bonding that’s HG/MM it’s over 2000 pages, not perfect, continuity errors, and some WTF secondary character sex scenes. But when it’s on, it’s on. It’s on ffnet
Gin Akasarahsmom: I’m worried about Bonding
raiderl_1: Loved your work Jazzy – both are faves!
Kaqlittle: I agree u took the letter off my keyboard
Gin Akasarahsmom: I’m not sure it’s going to end the way I want it to
raiderl_1: I’ve not read Golden Haze will look it up thnx!
quietheartedfsc: she’s definitely keeping us guessing, gin
Kaqlittle: I stopped reading bonding
jazwriter: thanks raider! I am loving your current DWP…and waiting patiently for more
blackgrl71: yeah, Bonding is pretty awesome and of course Jazzy’s stuff. since i’m a huge x-over fan, i loved how you merged DWP w/ HP. who’d a thunk it?
mayIreadtoday: I agree, I hope it ends happy-ever-after but I have no idea
Gin Akasarahsmom: Nic has a question…
raiderl_1: LOL – chap 7 up later…
quietheartedfsc: jaz did an excellent job with that
jazwriter: lol Kaq
blackgrl71: it seems as though HP would be fairly easy to x-over w/ some fandoms and since Jazzy did such a marvelous one w/ DWP, are there any other fandoms you’d like to read?
Kaqlittle: I agree just retread the first one yesterday
Jaely: where can you find Golden Haze?
mayIreadtoday: I think HP is easy to crossover poorly but hard to crossover well
raiderl_1: Kaq – yeah I stopped reading bonding too – couldn’t remember what was going on there was too much and too long btwn updates
Kaqlittle: I have read a few buffy hermione fics but none r finished
winter156: golden haze is on ff.net
jazwriter: That crossover was due to a prompt given by mxrolkr
jazwriter: the hardest part were merging the timelines
jazwriter: and keeping it believable
Kaqlittle: I agree raider
quietheartedfsc: plausability is what makes or breaks a crossover.
raiderl_1: mxrolkr deserves many thnx and you nailed it jazzy
blackgrl71: i mostly ignore the timelines, which makes it possible to write a HP x-over
jazwriter: thanks–I am glad it worked
winter156: I think that’s probably the hardest part about doing a crossover…keeping true to both fandoms
jazwriter: @winter I agree
Gin Akasarahsmom: the author has to know both fandoms
raiderl_1: But Miranda in DWP really lends herself to the HP world
quietheartedfsc: Nic is right…sometimes suspending timelines is the best way
mayIreadtoday: acs on tthfanfic.org does HP crossovers well. Nice Buffy/Ginny
blackgrl71: it did. i’m actually considering a HP/Underworld fic. Narcissa (i also LOVE) and Selene
Gin Akasarahsmom: sometimes you HAVE to suspend timelines
Kaqlittle: I like that idea
quietheartedfsc: me too.
raiderl_1: true dat Gin; especially works though when one of the verses is magical!
blackgrl71: but BTVS seems like a ‘natural’ w/ HP; Willow… magic w/o a wand, powerful magic at that
jazwriter: if not suspend timelines, then change canon
winter156: Magic is awesome
mayIreadtoday: And a Buffy/Luna I love called "The Bandersnatch"
jazwriter: magic is great for sex scenes
winter156: LOL yes it is
quietheartedfsc: HP made magic so "every day" that it’s believable to drop it into a lot of fandoms
blackgrl71: oh absolutely on the canon. you can have parts of the canon, but otherwise Jazzy is right
Jaely: I don’t know… the Characters in Harry Potter have set birthdays.. so ignoring the timeline is very hard for me to go with as Hermione is the samn age as I am
raiderl_1: Oh yeah…jazzy…esp for growing things
jazwriter: LOL, raider
mayIreadtoday: I think fembuck did that first
quietheartedfsc: a whole new take on the WonderWand200\
jazwriter: I try to stick to the correct ages
quietheartedfsc: I’ve been here too long
mayIreadtoday: the growing thing I mean
winter156: Is this going to turn into the sex panel?
jazwriter: oh, QH, it’s still early in the day!
quietheartedfsc: don’t they all
blackgrl71: yeah, the magic takes the sex to a whole ‘nother level.
Gin Akasarahsmom: probably winter.. they all do
raiderl_1: Dang the WonderWand…hail hail the Just Between series!
winter156: LOL…we’re all perverts at heart
jazwriter: I can guess who will be at the Voyager panel later
Gin Akasarahsmom: it glows Cerulean Blue right?
quietheartedfsc: The first fanfic I moved to my Kindle…lol
raiderl_1: Hell ya!
Gin Akasarahsmom: hehehe
winter156: But changing anotomy is not necessarily easy to write…
quietheartedfsc: ooo..now there’s a crossover I’d like to see HP and Voyager…*G*
raiderl_1: Anybody ever do a Xover with HP/VOY?
Kaqlittle: just between series?
jazwriter: well, there are several newer HP stories I am watching, but most are WIP
raiderl_1: QH – great minds!
quietheartedfsc: Kaq…Just Between is an epic series of Voyager stories
Gin Akasarahsmom: the Just Between series is a Voyager Series written by Gina Dartt… it’s very good
quietheartedfsc: that was started originally to prove the Janeway Seven pairing didn’t work…lol
jazwriter: so, I won’t recommend them until they are finished, particularly I once recommended a story and the ending was horrible!
jazwriter: *particularly since I
Kaqlittle: I guess I need to finish watching voyager so I can read it
blackgrl71: that’s a great series.
winter156: Going to grab some more coffee…brb
Gin Akasarahsmom: ohhh… never read wips
the_dhamphir: lol… trying to see 7 as she informs Hermoine that magic doesn’t exist.
quietheartedfsc: I can totally see that scene…lol
jazwriter: I know (but I make a few exceptions)
raiderl_1: Kaq – don’t bother watching series – Gina’s world MUCH better!
blackgrl71: that would be pretty funny
Gin Akasarahsmom: LOL… raider
raiderl_1: It’s true!!!
the_dhamphir: so write it, qh. ; )
Gin Akasarahsmom: well.. yeah.. I know
Kaqlittle: really? I don’t need a working knowledge for the series?
raiderl_1: Yeah QH, write it!
mayIreadtoday: I think you do need a working knowledge for Voyager
mayIreadtoday: Especially the characters
Jaely: are we talking about Voyager or HP?
raiderl_1: They’re in space, they’re hot, they’ve got chemistry!
Kaqlittle: sorry I got off topic
quietheartedfsc: hog tie ralst, get D to agree to not seeing me for another month and tell doc I moved and left no forwarding address and I will.
raiderl_1: Yes, mayiread, you’re right, basic knowledge of characters good. now I’ll go backto HP.
quietheartedfsc: let me ask this…which verse do you prefer to write in…book or movie
jazwriter: I think if the writer does a good job, you don’t have to know too much about the fandom
winter156: I leave for a minute and come back to order to hog tie ralst? LOL
Jaely: book all the way
Kaqlittle: sometimes a combination is good.
raiderl_1: Am I a complete heathen for never having read the books or seen the movies?
quietheartedfsc: no, raide
winter156: I rely on both depending on what exactly I want to convey
Jaely: there are Fics I read that I’ve never seen them before
jazwriter: thus my point!
raiderl_1: whew. I do enjoy the ff though, brings that world alive and I
raiderl_1: I’m not hampered by canon
Kaqlittle: I don’t do that cause I hate to be confused
blackgrl71: i haven’t read the books yet
Gin Akasarahsmom: there are times I’ve read the fanfic first… then gotten into the series/movie/book
quietheartedfsc: same here
Jaely: done that many times too Gin
jazwriter: I use both and I try to stay true to canon (except the last little part when they show Hermione and Ron married)
winter156: Ron just seems wrong for Hermione on so many levels
raiderl_1: Yeah that’ll make anyone run screaming Jazzy
quietheartedfsc: I combine the 2 canons and hope for the best…and no, it’s not posted yet
Kaqlittle: pretty much
mayIreadtoday: I think it’s possible Hermione and Ron got married in a post-war high but I believe they divorce
blackgrl71: i wholeheartedly agree.
jazwriter: have I seen that yet, QH?
Kaqlittle: I can’t wait QH
quietheartedfsc: no, jaz…no one has
Gin Akasarahsmom: those are my favorite fic…where Hermione and Ron are divorced
quietheartedfsc: though we’ve talked about it
Jaely: I really try and stay with the cannon Characterization but not always cannon because I’m pairing Hermione with some other girl…
winter156: I want this fic QH
jazwriter: ok, yeah, I remember…ad I’m waiting to beta it, dear
mayIreadtoday: QH is your fic plain HP or crossover?
blackgrl71: i actually like when Hermione is making her own way in life after the war’
quietheartedfsc: we’ve actually talked about 3, so I’ll leave you guessing until the beta copy arrives…lol
quietheartedfsc: I have 2 plain ones and 1 crossover
jazwriter: I am in the middle of writing a new one
the_dhamphir: *stare hard my empty inbox*
mayIreadtoday: QH: cool
Gin Akasarahsmom: LOL… I know D… me too!
Kaqlittle: oh I can’t wait
jazwriter: some have seen the first chapter…
raiderl_1: Both of you guys – writing now!
quietheartedfsc: how about after con, raider…lol
blackgrl71: yeah, i’m working a a couple news fics as well. x-over of course.
jazwriter: hehe, raider
raiderl_1: oh alright
quietheartedfsc: I love your crossovers, Nic
winter156: @QH HP crossover with what?
blackgrl71: thank you QH!
jazwriter: me too, Nic–you do a great job with the details of the world where you place them (and the sex is hot)
Kaqlittle: I agree
quietheartedfsc: I try to cross dwp with everything at some point….lol
quietheartedfsc: hello, dax…
blackgrl71: one is starring Narcissa — because i LOVE her character or the charcters fanfiction writers have created
jazwriter: hey dax
Daxilla: hello. New here… sorry to interrupt
winter156: Welcome dax
Daxilla: thank you
raiderl_1: agree Narcissa is a great character with lots of potential. Kind of Miranda like.
mayIreadtoday: hey mods, how about a question about blackcest please?
quietheartedfsc: *thinking I’ll have to give Narcissa a second look*
raiderl_1: hi Dax!
Daxilla: hi raider!
blackgrl71: aww shucks. that’ll be one w/ Underworld and thank you Jazzy.
jazwriter: I would realy love to see more HG/MM stories…really only a dozen or so writers are giving us new stories
quietheartedfsc: Go ahead, mayI
jazwriter: yw, blackgrl71
Kaqlittle: and finishing them
mayIreadtoday: I’m curious about people’s thoughts on blackcest.
jazwriter: yes, Kaq, I want finished stories
raiderl_1: Hmmm. Well, depends on writer and context.
quietheartedfsc: I’m against any "-cest", but that’s a personal preference.
raiderl_1: Bellatrix and Narcissa
blackgrl71: i secretly — or obviously not so secretly dig some blackcest
Kaqlittle: I don’t read blackcest
jazwriter: I won’t read them
Jaely: thanks raiderl
mayIreadtoday: Or Bellatrix and Andromeda or any combination of the sisters
mayIreadtoday: Also blackcest includes the boy cousins
Meneldur: I dislike Blackcest
Meneldur: But if done properly, it can be good
raiderl_1: Dance of the Seven Veils by liidg – definitely is a prime example of the potential for absolute smut with the sisters and Hermione. Don’t ask me how I know that…
mayIreadtoday: I think blackcest makes sense in how fed up they were raised bitterfic does a fantastic job with The bones of the Lilac
quietheartedfsc: I have 2 sisters and just ain’t no way…lol
Meneldur: The cousins bother me less, because I did Haruka/Michiru back when I still thoguht they were cousins, before I learned of the dubbing fiasco
winter156: I agree with QH…just no
Jaely: well we already know that there is cousin Marriage in the Black family as Sirius’ parents were first consins so that is not really out of the world of possiblity with them…
raiderl_1: They’re family is so f’ed up that they would rely on each other
quietheartedfsc: cousins doesn’t bug me as much, but then my grandparents were 3rd cousins…which explains a lot of you think about it..*thought I’d beat gin and jazz to it*
Gin Akasarahsmom: 😛
Gin Akasarahsmom: You are from the south
Gin Akasarahsmom: Oh!
Gin Akasarahsmom: hehehe
raiderl_1: ohno you didn’t! gine
quietheartedfsc: smarty britches
mayIreadtoday: raider, have you read The Bones of the Lilac?
Gin Akasarahsmom: ROFL!… She knows I love her
raiderl_1: mayi – no who by?
blackgrl71: whoa! LOL
quietheartedfsc: bffs get away with stuff the rest of y’all can’t…lol
mayIreadtoday: I think you’ll like this: http://bitterfic.livejournal.com/53063.html
jazwriter: I just love QH’s Southern drawl…
raiderl_1: cool, thanks!
the_dhamphir: so do i jazzy. *G*
mayIreadtoday: You’re welcome
quietheartedfsc: pfft…like I’ve got one…
mayIreadtoday: And of course fembuck writes very smutty blackcest
jazwriter: you soooo do!!
Gin Akasarahsmom: hehehe… perks
Jaely: *laughs* I feel the same way about the way I talk to qh but I’m told I have one by those that don’t live in the south..
quietheartedfsc: ok…as a matter of curiousity…what’s the one pairing you could never, ever see?
blackgrl71: y’all are funny. and yes, femback writes good smut period
raiderl_1: yeah I think I’ve read some of hers but can’t remember titles now
Meneldur: Yup, Janine (fembuck) is awesoem at any kind of femslash
BetweenLove_n_Hate: So I just popped my head over, but did you already mention the growth in Hermione/Bellatrix stories? (A secret passion of mine)
quietheartedfsc: true..fembuck is da bombe
Gin Akasarahsmom: ewwwww
Gin Akasarahsmom: ANYONE/Voldemort
raiderl_1: Major ewwwww
Jaely: <– with Gin on that
jazwriter: oh, I hate seeing HG/Voldemort!
blackgrl71: Ron w/ almost anyone… perhaps Dobby? or do you mean just femslash. if so probably Hermione/Molly
Meneldur: One shoudl distinguish between Tom Riddle and Voldemort, though
Kaqlittle: I don’t like Ginny
Gin Akasarahsmom: Hermione/Molly!? Wow.. that is just so wrong…
Meneldur: And I once read Pigwidgeon/Willow
Jaely: yeah Molly/Hermione is just… wrong in my eyes…
raiderl_1: uh who or what is Pigwidgeon?
mayIreadtoday: Yup, no Hermione/Molly for me
mayIreadtoday: We did talk about Hermione/Bellatrix
Kaqlittle: Ron’s owl
mayIreadtoday: femslash fanon Ginny is very different than canon Ginny
Jaely: Pigwidgeon is Ron’s owl
Jaely: known as Pig most times
blackgrl71: what?! Pidgwidgeon?!
Gin Akasarahsmom: OMG!
winter156: An owl…really?
jazwriter: I’m sticking with HG/MM, thank you very much
Meneldur: It was humoruos.
Kaqlittle: I bet
mayIreadtoday: Anyone know this fic (I’ve forgotten where I read it) Hermione pulls a Weasley into a broom closet that she thinks is Ron but it’s really Ginny.
Gin Akasarahsmom: Magic does seem to make more pairings possible than normal
Meneldur: As in, Pig falls in love with Willow and just worships her
quietheartedfsc: ok, now that’s just too wrong for even this setting
blackgrl71: Jazzy i think you could Narcissa some justice…
blackgrl71: i’m just sayin’
Meneldur: But I’m sure I once saw Pig/Hedwig, and Whomping Willow/Giant Squid
Jaely: yeah any mention of animals in a pairing and I’m not going to touch it…
Meneldur: So there are weirder things out there
raiderl_1: someone once did giant squid with Hermione
mayIreadtoday: It’s HP it’s fandom is vast
jazwriter: @blackgrl71–Narcissa and who?
blackgrl71: i concur
Gin Akasarahsmom: hard to think what that would be, but you’re probably right
Jaely: oh no…
quietheartedfsc: ok, evil underbelly is showing
blackgrl71: Hermione? Luna? or a x-over
raiderl_1: I say Hermione and Narcissa
jazwriter: yeah? hmmm
winter156: The magical creatures would be interesting to pair up…though a lot of mythology research would have to be done
mayIreadtoday: raider, that you wouldn’t read?
Jaely: what is being asked now?
raiderl_1: after the war’s over
jazwriter: winter–I didi tons of research for the animagi
raiderl_1: mayi, what wouldn’t i read?
jazwriter: since they are magical animals
mayIreadtoday: You said Hermione and Narcissa — what were you referring to?
raiderl_1: oh, a pairing for QH
Kaqlittle: makes sense that u would have to, Jazz
winter156: @ Jazzy- And Minerva is one…so it stands to reason a lot of research was done.
quietheartedfsc: which pairing for me?
mayIreadtoday: Oh, I thought you were answering the q about pairings you wouldn’t read.
quietheartedfsc: what’d I miss?
raiderl_1: maybe that was blackgrl – who to pair with Narcissa
Jaely: don’t know QH I missed it too..
blackgrl71: yeah, i’m mean turn a slightly tortured-post-Voldy-&-Lucious Narcissa… who needs to be loved — and not by her psycho sister.
quietheartedfsc: ah, yeah..def Nic..lol
jazwriter: yeah–I hate writing sometihng on the fly–I want it to be believable
raiderl_1: me too jazz i m brutal with research!
winter156: I think all good writers are crazy researchers
quietheartedfsc: even magic can’t suspend believablility totally
winter156: It has to line up somewhere with physics
blackgrl71: i agree. i hate reading a fic that’s not even close to suspending my disbelief. but then i’m fairly jaded so i might not be a good person to judge
raiderl_1: but how much of our knowledge of physics is bound by the limits or our minds?
Jaely: I research all the time for my HP stories.
winter156: Even if it’s just to break the rules of the universe, one must know what those rules are before breaking them with magic
jazwriter: raider–it’s storming outside right now (it sounds like the house is going to blow over)–does that help inspire you for your story? *big smile*
raiderl_1: LOL! Yes!
raiderl_1: hope your house still stands once it’sover!
blackgrl71: i also enjoyed enhancing characters’ powers — Asher Henry does some good stuff w/ Hermione (and sex magic)
raiderl_1: this was fun guys!
quietheartedfsc: Thanks to all our panelists
jazwriter: Jae–that’s good! Research can only make the stories better!
Jaely: I guess I did…
raiderl_1: yeah Asher does.
winter156: Thank you QH! For all the work you put into this.
mayIreadtoday: I’ve never heard of Asher Henry.
raiderl_1: thankyou guys.
Kaqlittle: yes thanks
mayIreadtoday: Hermione with who?
blackgrl71: research is good. i’m so thankful to the HP wiki. i’m doing a ton a research for a DWP fic i’m almost finished w/
raiderl_1: Asher Henry on ffnet
jazwriter: The best writers check out their storylines to make sure they make sense
raiderl_1: uhm Bellatrix I believe mostly
blackgrl71: yeah, QH thanks for inviting me & setting this up
jazwriter: thanks to all of you for the great discussion!
raiderl_1: bye qh!
winter156: Thanks everyone for the great discussion. Bye!
raiderl_1: thnx all!
quietheartedfsc: yvw nic
