Re: Flash Fiction

His new friend was a member of a medieval reenactment society and he wanted to impress her. So he enrolled in a class and forged a respectable shield. But his makeup was dreadful; he looked more like the Joker than a jester. Maybe he should arrive on a horse? (49 words)

Re: Flash Fiction

He was a Queen’s Guard, one of only four, standing outside Buckingham Palace. His rifle wasn’t loaded; he might as well be carrying a sword. Today his biggest challenge was fighting the urge to laugh, which could cost him a week’s wages. But some people were just too funny. (49 words)

Re: HP Fan Theories

My favorite fan theory involves the Deathly Hallows and the Peverell brothers. In the theory, Voldemort is Antioch, the eldest brother who was killed after seeking the power of the Elder Wand, Snape is Cadmus, the middle brother who died to join a dead girl he once loved, and Harry is Ignotus, the y...

I really love HOL so far and plan to make time for it, but I'm worried I'll forget about a forum for a week or something, which might look bad. Any advice for real-life-HOL balance? This is just an addition to Scarlet's ex...
