We're also starting something new this issue. As of right now, I'm not sure if this will become a permanent thing. It would depend upon the interest and response shown, as well as what the other mods think. But since we currently have a Picture of the Day and Moment of the Day, I thought it would be neat to do a Video of the Day.

Video contains spoilers for the OotP movie

So without further ado, Collapse )

Mod note..


Well guys, since it's been more than month that the community has been updated, and with the lack of HHr things lately, the community will be coming to a close very soon.

And yeah, I'm just joking.

I do apologize for the lack of updates, though. I don't know about the other mod's, but life has been really kicking my behind from left to right. Which is why I haven't had enough time to be on line, and even less time to gather up some links for an update. I do bring some good news. We finally have a new co-mod. So people, give a round of welcome to the new co-maintainer; lykeleia! She's been helping us for quite some time now, and I know very well that she'll come in handy to the community. Especially on time like these.

And on a last note, you guys can expect an update very soon. :)

Harry/Hermione Moment of the Day:

Philosophers/Sorcerer's Stone

The steep spiral staircase up to the top of the tower seemed the easiest thing in the world after that. Not until they'd stepped out into the cold night air did they throw off the cloak, glad to be able to breathe properly again. Hermione did a sort of jig.
"Malfoy's got detention! I could sing!"
"Don't," Harry advised her.
Chuckling about Malfoy, they waited, Norbert thrashing about in his crate.

Harry/Hermione Moment of the Day:

Half-Blood Prince

"I cant bear the idea that we might never come back," Hermione said softly. "How can Hogwarts close?"
"Maybe it wont," said Ron. "We're not in any more danger here than we are at home, are we? Everywhere's the same now. I'd even say Hogwarts is safer, there are more wizards inside to defend the place. What d'you reckon, Harry?"
"I'm not coming back even if it does reopen," said Harry.
Ron gaped at him, but Hermione said sadly, 'I knew you were going to say that. But then what will you do?

Issue 51


Two months, huh? I think we've broken our record. There really isn't any reason for the community to be this behind with the issue. Seeing as there's more than one mod, it really should've been updated ages ago. I do apologize for the lateness of the issue, though. Like the lovely calikalie has mentioned, we are looking for new people that will definitely update the community when none of the other mods are available, so we should have something announced by next week. I can't promise that the community will be updated every week, but I can guarantee that it won't be this much of a gab between updates. And yes, we are going to update weekly. So this issue will have everything between the 19-25th. Also, seeing as the community has been re-vamped, I was thinking of coming up with a new section for the issue. I have some ideas, but you guys are more than free to throw anything out there.

And before I forget, to all the Americans HHr'es out there, hope you guys had a terrific Thanksgiving day. And I really hope you guys had a huge piece of pumpkin pie to go with that dinner. ;)

Yes, I'm done. Lets get it on with it, shall we?

Harry/Hermione Moment of the Day:

Chamber of Secrets

"I wish I knew why someone did try to chuck it," said Harry. "I wouldn't mind knowing how Riddle got an award for special services to Hogwarts either."
"Could've been anything," said Ron. "Maybe he got thirty O.WL.s or saved a teacher from the giant squid. Maybe he murdered Myrtle; that would've done everyone a favor .....“
But Harry could tell from the arrested look on Hermione’s face that she was thinking what he was thinking.
‘What?’ said Ron, looking from one to the other.
‘Well, the Chamber of Secrets was opened fifty years ago, wasn’t it?’ he said. ‘That’s what Malfoy said.’
‘Yeah …’ said Ron slowly.
‘And this diary is fifty years old,’ said Hermione, tapping it excitedly.
‘So?’
‘Oh, Ron, wake up,’ snapped Hermione. ‘We know the person who opened the Chamber last time was expelled fifty years ago. We know T. M. Riddle got an award for special services to the school fifty years ago. Well, what if Riddle got his special award for catching the Heir of Slytherin? His diary would probably tell us everything: where the Chamber is, and how to open it, and what sort of creature lives in it. The person who’s behind the attacks this time wouldn’t want that lying around, would they?’”

mod update: changes

Firstly, I understand that it has been quite some time since this community has been updated with new links. I cannot speak for the rest of the co-maintainers, but I myself have been quite busy with my offline life and have been active in other fandoms lately. Therefore, I have a couple of points of interest to discuss.

  • I am contemplating adding another co-mod, who is active in the fandom, to partipate and post an issue if any of the others and myself should be busy. This is to keep the newsletter running smoothly, efficiently, and to keep its watchers from wondering why there is such a lapse of time in between posting. If anyone is interested, please leave a comment below. I am looking for at least one volunteer, or perhaps two. All comments will be screened and my co-mods and I will make a decision in a few days.

  • Also, since the fandom isn't as active as it once was a year ago, I've decided that once a week updates should be more than necessary rather than every day or even every couple of days. Once the news starts to pick up and the movie/book draws closer, then the updates could very well increase, but for now, we're shooting for once a week. I also planning on implementing a tags system as well as another system, which should make submitting material far easier.

    On the subject of co-mods, I would also like to give a big thanks to movedbyyou for posting whenever she could and nousia for her numerous contributions.

    And finally, to start off this "new era", I've put up a new layout, which has been long overdue. I hope you all enjoy it and I hope we can start off again on a new foot. I apologize for not being able to post for awhile. Hopefully, by adding new co-mods, this community can receive a much needed lift.
