Join us for the first community re-read! We are reading Philosopher's Stone beginning next week. Are you ready? Because we sure are!! There will be discussions and drabbling. Read the How To Guide below to find out how it will all work.

2016 Philosopher’s Stone Re-Read: How It Works

Reading Weeks
Starting Wednesday, June 1, we will have a Reading Week where we assign a certain # of chapters to read and there will be a running Discussion Post. As you read, feel free to start any threads with your thoughts, questions, or opinions. All discussions will remain indefinitely open, but there will be a new post every Reading Week corresponding to the chapters assigned.

Drabble Weeks
The next week will be Drabble Week, where we host a Drabble-athon related to the chapters we read. Have you ever wanted to explore a scene from a different character’s POV? Imagine what is happening in another part of the wizarding world during a certain moment in canon? Write fix-it fic for a certain scene? This is your chance! Anyone can start a thread prompting something they want to read regarding the chapters we read, and anyone can reply with a fill of at least 100 words, and prompts can be filled as many times as people want.

Posting Unprompted Drabbles
You can also post a drabble that isn’t from anyone’s prompt. Just start a thread and with the subject line: [Unprompted Fill] Chapter #. In the reply, post your drabble.

[Unprompted Fill] Chapter 1
Across the street, Mr Pembrook peeked through his curtains to check why the streetlights were all going out one by one. To his surprise, he spotted a tall thin man wearing a peculiar pointy hat and a severe looking woman with her arms folded in front of her. Mr Pembrook….. continued…..

Posting Prompts
Comment to the post with this subject line: [Prompt] Chapter #. In the reply, write out your prompt.

[Prompt] Chapter 1
A Muggle neighbor was watching McGonagall and Dumbledore through the curtains; what was this person thinking? Did the Ministry realize they spotted magic and Obliviate them?

Filling a Prompt
Just reply to the prompt with your fill! You can add your title to the subject line, or not; however you like to do it. As long as it’s at least 100 words and anything that could be squicky is warned for (preferably at the top of the reply in brackets).

Oh, I like the idea of writing drabbles during this. Are you going to do this for all seven books?

I am so excited, I think this will be a lot of fun! I think we will see how PS goes, and then if the other mods are up for it, why not all the books? :D
