Fansite [07 Sep 2007|09:23am]

jorowlingrocks
Hi everyone =) [If there's anyone out there]

I'm setting up a fansite for Jo, JoRowlingRocks.com, and I'm in need of some Jo graphics & fanart; they're a bit thin on the ground compared to the cast! If you have any that you'd like to have featured on the site please let me know! =D You'd get full credit, of course, and a link to your LiveJournal/DeviantArt/other website if you wanted.

More HP Details from J.K. Rowling [26 Jul 2007|08:46am]

Check out this article from the Today Show interview with J.K. Rowling--it gives more information on what happens to the surviving characters, including jobs, some potential romance, and a bit about Hogwarts. Obviously, SPOILERS ABOUND.

Thoughts on the book?

I could write a big long post, but I'm just going to say that I loved it. Absolutely and totally, and I'm moved just thinking about it.

Wow.

That's all I'm saying until everyone is ready to talk, but I figured I could give the community a poke.

Hello? *echoes* [09 Jun 2007|06:02pm]

Is this community dead?

I'm wondering this and also: has someone sent the Box off yet? I was just thinking of writing JKR an "appreciative" letter once I finish DH to tell her how I got into the series, how it's changed my life, things like that. I could send it independently (I'd like that) or could sent it to the Box, but I'm not sure if all this is still moving :(

I really hope the community wakes up and gets the Box sent! This was an amazing idea :)

I'm going to promote the comm in my personal LJ, but I can't guarantee anything!

[ mood | tired ]

*waves* I just stumbled across this community and I'm very glad I did, even if it's not too active =P Here's a little introduction...

Name: Becca
Age: 17
How many times have you read the books?: Haha, no idea!
Other interests: Gigs, reading other books, writing, learning French...
What drew you to this community?: Well, it's been a while since I've seen it now, but it made my blood boil when people started being nasty to Jo about how long HBP was taking to write, then what happened in it, etc. I actually made my own "letter to Jo" kind of thing with around 230 comments on it, and I got a letter back from Fiddy Henderson saying that Jo appreciated it very much but couldn't reply personally because she was busy with family... that was actually more than I expected to get back so I was quite pleased =)

Which HP Mary Sue Are You? (WITH PICTURES)




Native-American Seer and Remus Lupin's One True LoveYou are the exchange student from hell. You are a Ravenclaw, a Seer, a multi-animal Animagus, and you randomly spout very short sentences of deep, Zen-ish philosophy. Remus Lupin confides his lycanthropy to you in 24 hours flat. You are responsible for teaching the Marauders to become Animagi. You will warn the Marauders about the traitor in their midst, you will bring Lily and James together, you will send James to help Snape when Sirius plays the prank because you have Seen this, you will tell Lily the way to defeat Voldemort when he comes after her son In short, you will either forsee or facilitate all major and minor canon events, which is ironic because your author conveniently overlooks the fact that you've never been mentioned in canon despite all that.

Which HP Mary Sue Are You? (WITH PICTURES)




Dumbledore's daughter and Snape's One Twoo Wuvv You are hauntingly beautiful in a familiar way, and have a gift for Healing. You're good enough at potions to have Snape intrigued. You have been brought up as an orphan, and have never known love. Your hair shimmers like autumn leaves, even though autumn leaves do not shimmer. Dumbledore himself does not know of your existence, and you will go to Hogwarts seeking your father, but will find love with a greasy git instead. You will be the cause of Snapes loyalty to the good cause. You will love everyone you see, including Voldemort, which will cause him to spontaneously combust, thus making you the true saviour of the Wizarding World. Then you will decide that you have had enough excitement in life, drop your original intentions and start making multiple Snapey babies.

Attempting to be brave here! [13 Apr 2006|06:45pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Hey lovely JKR supporters! I really like the idea of this community, however, it's not updated very often. =) I wasn't sure if I was allowed to do this, but I thought I'd give it a whirl huh?

Let's talk about Jo!

If you could ask her one question, anything in the world, what would it be and why? Honestly, I want to know. ^.^ I would ask her when most of her ideas come to her. As a writer meself, most of my inspiration comes from taking a shower. I know, wtf right? Those plot bunnies know when to strike!

So anyway, what would you ask Jo?

Hey y'all, don't know if you've seen this yet. Way to go Rolling! Talking about eating disorders in a world that suddenly decided that anorexia and bulimia are lifestyles and not "diseases" is a very brave thing to do.

Supporting Jo [31 Dec 2005|02:35am]

prongsie
We're at the very end of the year, in the midst of the holiday season, a time when people generally think about helping or giving to others. This community was created to show support for J.K. Rowling and her work, especially after the backlash from fandoms after the publication of HBP. However, now that that's died down a bit (hey, it's still out there, I know) you can always support Jo in other ways as well.

Jo nominated for TIME's Person of The Year! [16 Nov 2005|06:24pm]

[ mood | excited ]

I thought this would be appropriate, since this community is dedicated to supporting Jo. :)

She's been nominated to TIME Magazine's Person of The Year, and there's a place where you can vote online. As of right now she's winning with 63% of the votes. I think it would be great if she won, so I strongly encourage everyone to vote!

You can vote here.

We need more letters! There are nearly 400 people in this community, so come on everyone...

...and write a letter!

Refer back to The Big Box o' Love Movement if you have any questions. :)

Also, remember, if you would like to send along a piece of art instead of a letter, please post it on pro_jo_icons and we will print it off and include it in the binder!

Big Box O' Love Update! [08 Aug 2005|11:10am]

paddita
[ mood | hopeful ]

Alright, the update is a few days late, but things have been busy here!

So far, we have 19 letters for the Movement.

Thank you so much to everyone that's sent one in! If you haven't sent yours in, please do so! I don't want to send this with any less than 100 letters! Beg everyone you know to write a letter of support and send it to paddita@hotmail.com.

**Oh, and as for packaging/sending, what do you guys think of a binder of sorts, with all the letters in plastic divider-type sheets, so they look and remain in nice shape over the years?** Comment with your thoughts.

For a demographics-by-county update:

1 from England
1 from Australia
1 from Israel
1 from Panama
1 from Croatia
11 from the U.S.
3 from Unknown

So please, please send in a letter! We started off with a bang, let's end that way! :)
