Hi, everyone!

Thanks so much for your votes and feedback on our post earlier this week. It's been really helpful and encouraging to read what you have to say. We'll be working on ways to help you help us publicize this community - including having a banner available so you can advertise the specific theme of the week!

To that end, I introduce both the banner and the theme for this week:

That's right, our theme is HOGWARTS STAFF, in honor of the back-to-school season. Staff includes, but is not limited to, professors, caretakers, mediwitches, etc. They can be current, former, or future employees (We'd love so see some Headmaster Dippet drawings or Filch-focused fic!).

For this theme, please tell us WHICH STAFF MEMBER(s) the fanwork features.

Here, have a template!

Also, if you would like to spread the word about this theme (I'm looking at you, Minerva and Severus fans!), the following code will help you do so—it's the small banner above linking back to this entry.

We're really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

And, as always, happy reccing!

WIP/Complete: Complete
Featured Staff Member: Severus Snape, Hermione Granger
Author's Summary:Take a fertile witch, a reclusive wizard and a meddlesome ghost, add them together and what do you get? A funny little tale about the redemption that comes with true love.

Contributor's Comments: One of my go-to stories. Hermione is in her 30s and lovely and Severus is very Severus but we get to look behind the mask.

Featured Staff Member: Albus Dumbledore
Author's Summary: Step into a world in which Ariana Dumbledore lived…

Contributor's Comments: This is the fic that got me into genfic. It's really incredible, and gives the reader an inside look at Dumbledore's life-or what it could have been had Ariana lived.

Edited at 2011-09-02 06:04 pm (UTC)

Thanks so much for the rec!

Would it also be appropriate to rec this for Canon Death Reversed/Ignored? If so, I can tag it as such in Delicious and also just fill out the template on that theme for this story as well. (Or you can comment with the rec on that entry; either way.)

Hmm....it may, but she plays such a small role in the fic, I don't think you ever really see her, you just hear about her so I'm not sure if you want to include it.

Ah, I see. However, it sounds like though she's not a primary character, the story hinges on the idea that her death doesn't happen. I'll tag it in Delicious, but maybe not go so far as to add a rec on the Canon Deaths Reversed/Ignored entry.

Thanks again!

songquake for hpthemes_mods

Yes, you're exactly right! I was trying to figure out how to word that-it's late and I'm tired lol. XD

Works for me, and no problem! I'm going to try to contribute a lot now, since I've got quite a few fics in my google bookmarks. We can go back and give recs for old themes, correct? :)

Yes yes yes, please do! If you go to the hpthemes page proper, the themes are all listed as tags on the side, or you can look at our Master List of Themes. The rec lists are only as fresh as we keep them :)
