Please don't post prompts here. This is for off-topic discussion only.

Old School Headcount

(Anonymous) 2016-12-03 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
Hi. I'm Anonymous and I'm an Old School Potter fan. I was a Slytherin, according to Pottermore. How many other old schooler's are still kickin' around?

Questions About Canon

(Anonymous) 2016-12-03 09:04 am (UTC)(link)
I figured it couldn't hurt to have a thread for random questions about the canon for those who can't find answerrs and are hoping their fellow "anons" (and not so anons) knew. Mostly because I have a question.

Does anyone know if the Niffler has a canon name and/or gender?

Kink meme question?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-06 12:00 am (UTC)(link)
More of a general question about the kink meme, which is maybe a dumb question - do we *have* to post on AO3 anonymously, or even post to the collection there at all if we fill a prompt? One of the prompts on here was an idea I already had independently, anyway, but I wasn’t sure and didn't want to do the 'wrong' thing. (I’ve never actually done the kink meme thing before). (This is assuming I ever actually write anything but I like to be prepared ;D).

(This is technically not OT I guess but it's also not a prompt?)

(Anonymous) 2016-12-06 08:47 am (UTC)(link)
Are people allowed to add their own add ons on someone else's prompt? I posted something and someone else replied to it with their own ideas on it which I did not really want? I mean if any writer would want to write it that way on their own I wouldn't have minded but it's definitely not something *I* thought of/want to see.

Merch

(Anonymous) 2016-12-06 10:09 pm (UTC)(link)
I bought the Newt Scamander Funko Pop.

I really wanted Credence, but he doesn't have a figure. But the president or MaCUSA does. WTF Funko, he's one of the most important characters in the movie!

Anyone else have any stuff yet? Anything you want?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-07 06:39 am (UTC)(link)
Be honest, kids, who here wore a robe to the movie?

*raises own hand*

So- is it okay if I make a thread collecting all of the prompts I have made under one place?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-08 09:17 pm (UTC)(link)
For ease of tracking.

Also because I am a ho-bag like that- is cool if not.

Will probably actually admit to my fills on AO3- what is shame? I have no shame, there is only Zuul.

Plot bunnies - AT 3 AM?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-09 03:17 am (UTC)(link)
Does this ever happen to you...it's past 3 in the morning, you want to fall asleep but there's just this idea that doesn't leave you alone?

What do you do? Get up to write or try to fall asleep and pray you remember it in the morning?
My dillema right now >.

prompts word limit?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-11 12:37 am (UTC)(link)
I'm seeing more and more prompts that are paragraphs long and basically whole fics or outlines of rather long stories, and I have no idea of how anyone prompting that expects it could be filled. Can we put a word limit on prompts? 250 words or two paragraphs orsomething like that?

Theseus Scamander - casting

(Anonymous) 2016-12-11 08:02 am (UTC)(link)
I'm guessing the character is supposed to be this buff dude but I can't help but want Ben Whishaw for the role.

Who would you cast?

If you were an actor/actress...

(Anonymous) 2016-12-12 10:33 am (UTC)(link)
...would you read fanfiction about you or your characters? Why yes or why not?
Let's get this discussion going!

Random thought

(Anonymous) 2016-12-12 08:30 pm (UTC)(link)
I've never been on a kinkmeme for any fandom in which Eddie Redmayne played a character and not seen a prompt about his pretty cocksucking lips, and I think that's beautiful.

Is Credence a minor? If so, then should it be tagged "underage"

(Anonymous) 2016-12-21 12:17 pm (UTC)(link)
I could not peg down Credence age during my view of the movie (and I cannot afford a re-watch). They talk of him as if he is a child or a young boy, demonstrably older than 8 or 12 but never as a young man or youth. Ezra Miller obviously isn't a teenager. Did anyone get the sense of what age Credence is meant to be and if he's portrayed as underage (despite Miller's 24 years of age) should it not be tagged?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-21 09:09 pm (UTC)(link)
I just saw this prompt: So Rowling has recently stated Grindelwald didn't use polyjuice but transfiguration and now I hate everything.

Captain Bleached Pineapple Sparrowald in place of Collin's Graves is the worst.

Where's my nope-ctapus gif when I need it?

Cigarette case?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-22 07:08 am (UTC)(link)
I keep seeing similar language describing a cigarette case that Graves or Grindlegraves has popping up in fics. Is that from the script? Or a behind the scenes book or something?

Keep it gay?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-23 07:21 am (UTC)(link)
How do you think the upcoming films will treat Dumbledore's sexual orientation? Do you think it'll be addressed at all? The fact that JKR didn't even reveal it until the HP series was over makes me doubt, but if his and Grindelwald's relationship is going to be a significant part of the story I'm not sure how it could be avoided completely. I guess it could be just subtext. I really wonder if they're going to be more open about it this time around.

new round (s)

(Anonymous) 2016-12-25 09:57 am (UTC)(link)
hey mods, i know this is unlilely since the new round has just started but have you guys considered freezing the prompts for a week or so to give people a chance to fill the prompts? right now we have dozens of new prompts every day, and it's really hard for people to actually take some time and fill them, given that everything is so frantic. in my experience this makes a KM burn itself out in a few months, because nothing gets filled and people lose interest.

Newt's family and Hippogriffs

(Anonymous) 2016-12-25 10:48 am (UTC)(link)
Is it canon that Newt's family/mother raised Hippogriffs? I seem to have found it in at least two fics.

(If fanon, it's lovely fanon!)

Pairings reminding you of the dynamic of other ships?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-25 02:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Since I recently realized that the Graves/Newt dynamic I'm seeing in fic is really, really close to Roy/Ed from FMA. Anyone else reminded of ships from other fandoms?

new round rules

(Anonymous) 2016-12-25 05:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Are we supposed to repost prompts, or are we allowed to fill prompts from the previous round?

Topic Policing

(Anonymous) 2016-12-26 05:11 pm (UTC)(link)
(disclaimer: I'm not the OP of the sex tape prompt0

First of all, you can't "tag" topics on a DW comment meme so stop asking people to do it, this isn't Tumblr or AO3 and even if tagging individual comments was possible, that would not stop you from having to see them without installing some extra browser extension. You can only ask them to leave a warning in the subject line of the comment. This is common kink meme etiquette, so there is nothing wrong with maybe making that clear in the rules. I don't think anyone would object to having a "Please warn for iffy subjects" rule.

Second, the whole point of a kink meme is for people to be able to ask for anything they want, no matter how weird or gross or inappropriate. That's why so many people post anonymously, so they can ask for what they want without shame. It takes some fans a lot of courage to ask even anonymously. Sometimes...they are going to ask for things you, personally, think are Gross and Inappropriate! But another common kink meme rule is that when you see something you did not want to see, you let.it.go. If it's a prompt you think is inappropriate, then the prompt was not meant for you anyway. Not every prompt will be for something you enjoy or even want to hear about. Sometimes you'll want brain bleach.

Welcome to Kink Memes.

The only way these things work is if everyone agrees that everyone likes things other people think are Gross and Inappropriate. Everyone draws the line in a different place. When you tell other people not to ask for certain things just because you don't like them, that's called Kink Shaming. It's generally frowned upon. Most kink memes have a firm policy against arguing over the appropriateness of prompts (unless the prompt is specifically violating an already clearly established ruling from the mods)

Once you start policing what people are and are not allowed to ask for on a kink meme, it will not stop. Everyone will start thinking they get to yell at other people for prompts they personally don't like. This meme already has rape, child abuse, incest, bestiality, and regular RPF, which are all topics which, by themselves, are taboo and could lead people to come here and tell us "hey, stop writing and asking for That Gross Thing".

You may think there's a difference because the sex tape was real, and everything else asked for is fictional (including the rest of the RPF prompts) but that doesn't make a difference to people who think you shouldn't be writing Harry Potter porn at all.

High quality movie download?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-27 12:48 pm (UTC)(link)
I've seen gifs on tumblr with high quality versions of the movie but all I can seem to find are dodgy versions... Does anyone have a link to these versions and would help a poor anon out?

Quodpod

(Anonymous) 2016-12-28 03:11 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know why this bothers me so much, but I have seen several fics which mentioned characters playing quidditch at Ilvermorny or which quidditch team is their favorite. And maybe I am needlessly nitpicking, but I would like to point out that while they sure have Quidditch in America the most popular wizarding game in the USA is supposed to be Quodpod.

Gramander -- where did it come from?

(Anonymous) 2016-12-30 06:57 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm really shocked at the popularity of this pairing, don't get me wrong. A lot of the art is definitely appealing, but where did it start and how did it get big so quickly?

Fanart you enjoy

(Anonymous) 2016-12-31 02:46 pm (UTC)(link)
I thought it'd be nice to have a thread where people can share fanart they like. Please, link to the artist's own page if you can--we want to give credit to the people who make this stuff for us :)
