"Hi, Severus," said Lily                             


Thanks for the comments about the Crookshanks story, folks. It would be great to hear from everyone who participated, even if it was just for a few posts. Thanks! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 2752390508



Okay, please excuse me, but I need to have a bit of a [rant]. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 3276373137 It would be great, if, every once in a while, folks could acknowledge the fact that I posted the official story and stats with some words of appreciation. When I look at the comments for the other Potty Games: the trivia quiz, riddle, hangman, and 20 Questions, folks get nice comments there all the time. Granted, I am not creating the story on my own, but I am certainly compiling it, thinking of a title, formatting the text and the stats, and posting it, usually very quickly, all on my own. And sometimes, i wonder, why bother trying to get things done quickly? No one seems to say a thing about it. Yes, I realize folks are busy, but I have things to do, too. It takes more than magic to get this stuff done. [/rant]

PAH,

I'm sorry that you have not been congratulated and thanked for your work getting this stuff together. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 1437562208 I have only recently started with running a trivia quiz and it really does take some time. I think the forum is a great place to be because of people like you who take the time to let me stop by and drop a few posts and feel like a part of something great.

Sooooo, thank you for all that you have done for us! flower rendeer farao jocolor

Thanks, Mona and BB. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 2752390508 I read rants on the Chat thread from other Forum members that speak of the same sort of thing in their non-Forum lives, and I thought, "Well, it happens here, too, from time to time." Anyways, I'll put my own horn away now. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 464751818

As I mentioned in this post earlier, since there is no real reason for me to hurry to post a story and its stats once it's finished, from now on Five Worders, please allow for up to a week between one story's completion and the next story's start. Thanks in advance for your patience.

Jobberknoll (from the Lexicon): A tiny blue speckled bird that makes no sound until the moment of its death, when it lets out a long scream consisting of all the sounds it has ever heard; their feathers are important ingredients in making potions that affect memory (FB). Jobberknoll feathers are used in Memory Potions and Truth Serums.

I hope this will do for a special present. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 2222139670

Perhaps these birds are found in the Forbidden Forest.

Wow, that's a lot! I went to the Archives yesterday and read a story at random, about an owl with a lime green beak. It was a pretty 'random' story actually Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 1003735042 , quite different from what we do now, but oddly enough it worked! It was very entertaining.

nice, but are you sure

Mona, back in the early days of 5 words most of the stories were random, but we had so much fun writing them. We often would try to throw out something completely outrageous just to throw the next poster for a bit of a loop. Product was not nearly as important as process. Kind of an "anything goes" philosophy. It might be fun to write such a story again. I seem to remember one with LV tap dancing, but that might have been a different fan fiction.

Hehe, Mona... I have a different take on those earlier stories... one that's not quite as appreciative as yours. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 464751818Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 1003735042

10 volumes sounds like a lot, and I suppose it is, but Volume IV is ready to post. Volume V was the most voluminous volume, with 13 stories, but after that the volumes ranged from 7 to 11 stories. And, as with other threads I've formatted, I've worked out some shortcuts, so things are going quicker than they were before.

them?" She looked a bit

PAH, to appreciate the old stories you have to remember they were never meant to be "polished". There was plenty of other fan fiction out there for that. The two who started the thread were a high school kid and another still in college. I think they had to write enough "quality" papers, so 5-words was a chance to put the rules aside and just have fun. Randomness. Chaos. Very little -if any- discussion about where the story was heading, so you truly never new what the next post would bring. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 3845856932

Seems like she's already said they're very nice, and I can't think of anything to change my words to. Oh well...

I'd love to read the Voldy tap dancing story! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 1003735042 PAH if you come across it while archiving, please let me know.

Yes, I'll keep that in mind. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 2752390508

Mona, I think that story is called 'Springtime for Slytherin' and is in Volume V, the early part. It was before I started Five Wording... I joined in midway through the 5th Volume. So before the week is out, check the Archives. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 12 858139975



EDIT: In case anyone's stuck with a follow-up to my words...
Spoiler:
Over the past two years of their friendship, Severus had... or Over the past two years, Severus had always ... etc.
