Hello All. Bella's player here. I have started a reunion Twitter account @CommuniQuills. Please stop by and leave a message. Thanks and I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Mixer Thread Tools

So, with 1800+ comments and the fun not seeming to slow down too much, I've gotten reports that the post is getting hard to navigate. I wanted to give you some tips and also a guide to the threads so you can hopefully avoid loading the entire post if nothing else works.

First, adding ?format=light after the .html part of the URL will strip the page down to its bare basics. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to stick after you leave a comment, but for viewing the entire post at once, it may be a help.

Second, I highly recommend using a tabbed browser. The new IE 7 has tabs, and I use Firefox 2.0 myself (which also has the added benefit of working with the LJLogin extension which makes it much easier to switch between names). I've got two browser windows open, one with my normal email/LJ/web stuff, and one with just tabs of the threads I'm active in. Firefox also will restore all tabs/windows if it crashes (as I found out last night).

But if those still don't work or aren't an option, below is a list of the main threads, in chronological order, referencing the charcter who started the thread. There may be (and probably are) multiple subthreads under there. If I can, I'll make a list of those later today. Also, if anyone else has the time to make the list, send it my way and I'll add it!

ETA 4/6/07: I have updated the list to include the subthreads! You folks are a chatty bunch... :D

An April Fool to Remember

Seems like Loki has targeted us as his victims for this year's April Fool trick, and the boundry between universes has melted away! We discover how life may have been if things had been different; we see other versions of ourselves; we meet people we never thought we'd actually get to chat with ;)

communiquills and hex_files are all mixed together! Have at it!

(If you haven't divulged your secret identities, I encourage you to pop over to this post and do so; you can also ask any questions about how this works there.)

ETA: If anyone wants to create a special thread for particular groups of people to congregate in (teaching staff, Death Eaters, Hufflepuffs, etc.), feel free to do so! Start a new thread and put a title in the subject line so it sticks out (replies in the thread may delete the subject). And if you email me or IM me with the link, I'll add it up in the post here so people can find it quickly :)

ETA 2: With the thread getting so huge, I have made a post of tips and tools for easier reading, along with a list of (for now) the main parent threads that have been posted so far.

Some disclaimers: This is a public post, meaning that anyone can come in and read it.

Readers should be aware that threads may include explicitly sexual or violent actions/imagery, and should proceed accordingly.

Players are asked to play all sexually-active characters at a minimum age of 15; if Animagi will be featured, please warn for that in advance (a note in the comment's subject line will suffice).

This is meant to be completely cracky, but while there is very little restriction of content in general, please remember that due to the nature of the mixer, some players may find themselves uncomfortable when faced with a different version of their character or their character's loved ones. Everyone is free to request that another character leave them be, and this request MUST be followed without exception. This post may be shut down at anytime if any huge problems arise, though I know most of you well enough to be fairly sure that this paragraph is totally unnecessary :D

Pre-Mixer Post: Wait, Who Are You?!

This post has a double purpose. First, a reminder about the communiquills/hex_files mixer that will be hosted here starting Sunday (or late Saturday night, depending on where you live, hehe). Anyone who is part of either group is welcome to come and play with any and all of their various personalities :D

And in that vein, since there are people who are part of one group but not the other, and therefore won't realise that a CQ character is the same player as an HF character they know and adore, I wanted to give you guys a place to put down that info. This isn't a commitment or anything, so if you think there's even the slightest chance you might pop in, please drop a comment in here.

Also, if you have any questions about how this is going to work, feel free to ask here as well. :)

You're Invited!

That's right -- we're having a bit of a mixer over here for both communiquills and hex_files characters! If you have a character (or several characters) in either RPG, you are welcome to bring them along. If you have characters in both, well then that's just more fun for everyone!

This will have no redeeming value. This is unadulterated crack. This is for characters of the same name to eye each other up and wonder how things could have been. Or for very interesting pairings. Whatever you like ;D

So stop by starting April 1 to see the post, and we'll just let it go until you all tire yourselves out!

This is a couple days late, but I'll be sure to make up for it at the end of the month.

Well folks. This is it. I have removed posting access for everyone, and that's how it's going to be throughout the rest of the wrap party.

Here's the deal about this post: anyone can post here. Players can post as themselves, characters can post, and readers are very welcome to read. Ask questions, share favorite moments, make plans for the future.

Basically, have lots of fun. And while this is going to be the top post here for the next month, even once the new format starts, you'll be welcome to come back to this post and continue posting.

Can't believe its been a month since you two quit school. I'm sure the fan mail is pouring in, but in case you haven't heard - the swamp is still there and Filtch is getting tetchier by the hour. I know a group of Third Years are doing laps across the Entrance Hall then up through the second floor and down again, just so Filtch has to ferry them back across. Picture of innocence in the face of his apocoleptic rage.

Mr. Burke,

The terms you have offered are adequate and it is with great pleasure that I accept your offer of employment.

I trust that you will understand that I shall require one month after leaving Hogwarts to manage my own affairs. You may expect to see me in your shop, refreshed and ready to begin my new career, no later than July first.



HERMIONE GRANGER: 9 November, 1991

Dear Mum and Dad,

Harry and Ron have become even more sports obsessed over the last week. The House team captain, Oliver Wood, has been making Harry practice just about every minute, it seems. He almost fell asleep in Astronomy on Wednesday night, Professor Sinistra was very unimpressed. I've been reading over their essays before they submit them, but nothing more than that.
