I want to apologize for this post being a day late. I am doing NaNoWriMo and was so focused on my word count that I forgot. I will try not to make it a habit.
Project #2 is going to be VACATION POSTCARDS!
Go pick out a hilarious local postcard and send it to your Quill Pal. Perhaps you live by the beach that means Harry could taunt Snape with the idea of lush surf and a hand with his sun tan lotion.
Have fun with it!
Sign up deadline is Friday Nov. 12th.
Ps: If you haven't sent out your Project #1 mail, do that today!!!
The deadline for our first project has come and passed!
This means that by the end of today, though I'm aiming for within the next hour, you will have your quill pal! So get your thinking caps on, your stationary out and your tongue ready to lick some stamps because it's time to swish and flick some post outta here!
For our first project we're going to be doing PARTY INVITATIONS!
That means you get to create a fun party, all the details and invite your Quill Pal to join you. Maybe you'll be inviting Lucius Malfoy to an 80's costume night or Susan Bones to a Haunted Tea Party. Get creative! Let your imagination run wild!
If you are up to the challenge then comment below. Deadline for joining this project is Thursday, October 28th.
If you have questions about the project feel free to ask. Remember, Quill Pals will be handed out once the deadline has passed.
Also, tell all your friends to come by and join the fun!
Here is a place for you to leave any comments you might have, project suggestions and questions.
Comments are screened so let us know if you specifically don't want your comment shown later.
This is the post where you must give us your information in order to participate in the Mail Projects. All comments are screened so that only the mods can see your information. When your information is given out to your quill pal of the week, we will do so in a Lj message or email.
In a comment please give us the following information.
I'm Tiffany. I'm 21 and have been a Harry Potter fan for near on 10 years now. I am a huge fandom lurker and role player/cosplayer. I met Sasha (stupid_drawings ) at Terminus in Chicago a little over two years ago now. We recently talked about doing in character letter writing to each other once she moves away from me in November. The mention of that had her telling me about this community and the mutual decision to get it going once more. Since she is busy with getting things ready for her move, the bulk of getting this up and running has fallen on me and I am totally up to the challenge!
However, we are going to revamp how everything here goes down.
First, We're going to have a post where you comment with your mailing info as well as a list of characters that you would love to get mail for. Comments will be screened so no one but myself and Sasha will be able to see your info. Once you have done this you never have to give us your info again. I will store it in a secure document for future use.
Second, we will post the mail project of the week. All you have to do is comment letting us know you are in for the project. This allows you to participate as your schedule and wallet see fit. After the sign up deadline hits, we will message you with the information of the person you will be writing to. You will get their mailing info and the list of characters they want to get mail for. Then the fun happens! You pick one of the characters to write to and write! You can write to the character as anyone from the books. Let your imagination go wild. Write to Ginny as Lucius Malfoy or to Snape as Ludo Bagman. The choice is yours and the options endless!
Since mail can be expensive and everyone has busy lives, we're going to do a mail project every two weeks to start with. So we will post the project, give you a couple days to sign up and then, hopefully, more then a week to complete it and get it in the mail.
We have lots of fun project ideas lined up already and are always up for suggestions. I will put up a post where you can post your suggestions for projects in the comments.
I can't wait to get started and I'm sure you can't as well. The first project will go up on Monday the 25th of October. Until then spread the word! The more people involved the better!
See you soon!
Has everyone gotten their RP letters and/or ATC's they were supposed to get?
There seems to be a lot of not-received's surfacing.
Well, now is your chance to vent it out! Sign up to send and receive a howler!
Comments screened, of course. Just reply with:
Sign ups will close Sunday, October 21st at 8pm, emails will go out shortly after. Don't delay, sign up today! :D
Just a reminder that you have until Oct. 13th to sign up for the Holiday Pocket Shrine exchange!
Our holiday exchange will be Harry Potter themed pocket shrines. These are just little mementos you can carry around with you to remind you of things you love (in this case, HP!). There are website that can tell you how to make them, but it's pretty much whatever you want to do with it. Matchboxes and Altoids tins work really well, but anything that could fit in a standard pocket would work. Mixed media, anything you want to put into it.
What I need from you is a comment with:
Your favorite character:
What you love most about HP:
How is HP significant to you:
Any other thoughts:
You will receive a name and this person's feelings and favorite thing about HP, which can be your inspiration to create a more personalized pocket shrine that will be cherished forever.
signups will be closed on Oct. 13th, pocket shrines will need to be done and mailed by Dec. 10th. Now, obviously, I can't make sure you mail them on time, this is the honor system, so please only sign up if you intend to make one and send it out. I think that's a good amount of time to work on it.
