Okay, I think I'm slow on the uptake but anyone who hasn't already should go right now and read Being Hermione Granger by Amphotera.

In my opinion, so far, it's one of those stories that is just written so carefully and intimitally. I appreciate her characterization of Hermione as a girl exploring her flaws and talents and her confusion over Snape. Which brings me to how beautiful she writes Snape.

There are some scenes... the bookstore scene... the musings on masculinity...the unicorn scene...Hogsmeade trips... the side plots...

I'm really wondering how the author will finish her story. And I hope she continues to update.

Enough of me waxing poetic, go read if you haven't and if you have than yay. :D

Curious: Favorite story(ies)of ss/hg you've read old and new? Ones that were more "pg-13" or had little of the above that rating stuff?
I'm kinda looking for something to read. But I do prefer a Hermione in school setting. I just find the dynamics interesting as well as  Hogwarts magic and faculty interaction.

So drop me a line... Even an older story that perhaps I've forgotten.

Because otherwise I may just have to go back and reread Pet Project for the tenth time, or Second Life, or Silvering Divide .... :P

Whenever I get a craving for a certain type of ss/hg story I post here because I know that if any people know where the stories are it's you guys.

Some of my favorite ss/hg stories are ones where there is a lot more to the story than romance (though I love the romance). I really love when Hermione's at school, but the story goes into maybe the faculty or school politics or outsite politics (like how the Order works or the magical government). I just find it fascinating because you take regular aspects and mix it with magic and it's just so interesting. I love when stories really explore the Harry Potter World...

So I was wondering if any of you know a story (stories) where this is the case?

I hope you're all doing well too. :D

Hi everyone,

So I received this prompt request from magikofeden. I thought it was a really great idea and decided to write a drabble for her. The drabble references A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. I think that literature is open-ended and, therefore, a drabble referencing it would also be the same. Having said this, I hope you enjoy it. It's pending at the TPP as well.
Read more...Collapse )

So I just read that one-shot by Snarkyroxy with Hermione in her third year and what may have happened if she met Snape after quitting Divination.

It was wonderful. I hope you've all read it. :)

And it's made me wonder if there are other good stories that give a new spin of Hermione in school and her interactions with Snape without romance. I mean, she was there for six years and in those years there had to be more interactions. She was a student and he was her teacher.

It's hard not to want the romance as well, but I'm just wondering if any of you have read any good stories that fall into this category.

Hello fellow book lovers!

Okay, so in my mind a battle has been going on for several years now: Hardcover vs. Paperback.

Why has it been provoked?

I don't know if you guys have noticed, but Barnes and Noble mostly carries paperbacks. In addition, Terry Pratchett (one of my favorite writers) for some reason has his books as mass market paperbacks with no hardcovers in stock. I have bought some of his hardcovers used... But I do find it very odd that someone as successful as him would only be selling books in paperback. I would love some wisdom on that one. "sigh"

But I was wondering what you guys thought about the different formats, because I've been trying to come to terms with paperbacks. They are cheaper (I recently bought two Pratchett books from the bookstore in paperback because I really wanted to read and I wanted them -some form of them at least- on my bookshelf). I figure I could always buy them in hardback later on from some used bookstore.

I've just been obessing a bit when I'm reading one of the books because I don't want to crease the spine... I hate the idea of the glue decaying and the cover bending. "sigh"

I don't know, I'm hoping maybe you guys have some positives to say about paperbacks that could get me on the bandwagon. You know, able to accept the format and just enjoy the damn words. "laughs"

So I was watching this show on the history channel about the tracking of Tsunamis. The scientists talked about plate tectonics, rock layers, new tracking devices etc.

It just got me thinking about how when we go to school we learn about actual science and history and math and literature... And we also touch upon other cultures within these topics sometimes (hopefully).

But what about Hogwarts/Magic students? They learn the subjects that we read about in the HP books; the topics that are relevant to their world and their discoveries etc...

But what about plain science, math, history, literature? I guess the important muggle discoveries that have clearly uncovered important perspectives and developments. Do they not learn about the Renaissance, or  the world wars? Or what about the Pythagorean Theorum? Or what about climate change, the environment, or how the body works?

I guess magic tends to defy certain things like physics maybe, but what about all the other things that are human history, or that affect the earth that both muggle and magical live on? And going  back to physics, what about the solar system though? That's a constant development that affects muggle and magical I would think.

I was just thinking...

Hi Everyone!

Happy April. I hope it has started nicely for everyone. I also want to give my best to bluestocking79 who has had a tough week with not feeling well and then the fire incident. Best wishes.

I also wanted to show off this:

It's so pretty! My favorite color happens to be green as well. I have to say that it makes me rather excited as it's my first banner. :D Wisdom was the first story I successfully wrote for SS/HG. Thank you TPP.

I need your opinion:

So you know, you gotta love Haldir from LoTR (the book and the movie since he has such a prescence in it). I know that some of you don't know who I'm talking about "laughs" (I didn't either really until recently). But, he's a great character and symbolizes so many things that can be admired. He's one of those characters to think about and even use in life. If you know what I mean...

Anyways, done with the thoughtful part!

But I would like your opinion on which icon you like best.

1.  2.  3.  4. 

These are what I could find so far.

There's something about elves... :D
