Hi! Call me Pen. :)

SMUT! Click if you're an adult PK oldbie!
Read our feature on author HARRYS MISTRESS!





Hi PK authors,

I've been wondering about these questions for ages. I suppose this is the best place to ask them. To make it easy for anyone to answer, simply copy and paste the template below onto your posts.

If you've got more questions, go ahead and ask. If you've been accepted only recently (congrats!), then you can celebrate here! thumbup.gif

[i][b]1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?[/b][/i]


[i][b]2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites?[/b]  Which of [URL=http://talk.portkey.org/index.php?s=&showtopic=27481]these indicators[/URL] did you notice first?[/i]

[i][b]4.  What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?[/b][/i]




As a lazy Fic Mod, I notice and/or get told about the following answers:

1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?

Whooped for joy?

2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey? Which of these indicators did you notice first?

At least one said she never received her acceptance email. Then one time she logged on to her fanfic control panel (users.portkey.org). She squealed when she saw the "Author Options" menu.


3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

I always smile when I see stories uploaded merely hours after I've approved them. Such enthusiasm! biggrin.gif


4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?

Peer pressure? IPB Image The emoticons? devil.gif Some kind of deal? devil.gif (Max, where are you?!)

Hi! Call me Nelli. :)




1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?

I grinned very widely and felt my heart jump. I don't care if it's not biologically possible! It did happen!

2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites? Which of these indicators did you notice first?

I got an email. One of the best ever. wink.gif

3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

*thinks* Two hours? Maybe a little more.

4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?

I love Pumpkinpie and I love writing about it. PK had a vast amount of great stories on its list, and I felt that I would love to be included among such a lot of talented authors.

Hi! Call me Diana. :)




1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?

Ah well I can't really remember when I got accepted but I can tell you I was surprised, utterly and completely surprised that I was accepted. Because I send in a rather not so well betaed vision of the very first smute fic I ever wrote. I still can't believe that I got the authornumber 269 but there are now what over 5000 more authors that is uncanny.


2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites? Which of these indicators did you notice first?

Heaven which fics I always adored and someone where I rather look up sent me a really nice e-mail so I knew right away before I got to the site I was accepted. Hmm I don't even know if it were at that time so noticeable, though.


3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

Uh, thats hard but I believe I posted the same chapter just a couple of hours after I got the approvel. Uhm well it got directly so about 17 reviews, just I was so stupid and deleted this story accidently so you'll never read the nice, really nicest reviews I got since I post my fics here.



4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?
A guy called Mola made me write once a smute-story almost one and a half years ago. We chated and he asked why I don't write such stuff uh and well I told him I'm no good in it but someway he got me that far to give it a try. After that I needed someone to beta it, guess he was the one who did so.
Since it was NC-17 I needed to become a Portkey-author or I couldn't have post it at all though I did it anyway on FFN but ssh I got punished for it. The only time ever that I was banned anywhere on net for 3 weeks.

Hi! Call me Nielle. :)





Pen, do I need to answer these? You know my story probably better than I do! tongue.gif At the very least most of this is probably well documented at Wonky.

1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?

My jaw dropped.

2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites? Which of these indicators did you notice first?

I honestly can't remember if Pen told me before I got the email. Regardless, my jaw still dropped at the email.

3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

Again, can't remember that well, but am pretty sure it was the same day.

4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?

The first question is a loaded and lengthy one. I came to PK to read fics, certainly not to write any. As to the second one, Pen knows it was peer pressure and getting "caught in a thingy of my own thingy". tongue.gif But PK Author... still funny about calling myself that.

Nielle, wondering where the time goes.

Erm, something like this:

biggrin.gif biggrin.gif *throws imaginery confetti*


2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites? Which of these indicators did you notice first?

Email and email. With comments from Pen. *happy dance*


3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

Oh, I did it right away.


4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?

Erm... I faintly remember finding it by chance, and then saw the D/G forum and was like, "oh, joy!"

'Cuz everyone (namely Nitya tongue.gif ) was pressuring me. tongue.gif

Hi! Call me Mallory. :)




1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?

After the confusion wore off, I was very happy and proud of myself, since I had to apply a couple of times.

2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites? Which of these indicators did you notice first?

Randomly logged into my fanfic user controls, and saw the autor options list.

3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

Less than five minutes.


4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?

Portkey hosted all my fave pairings, so I automatically bookamrked it. The fanfics were(still are) of good quality, and the people seemed friendly so I decided it would be nice to post here as well. thumbup.gif

Hi! Call me Sandra. :)

SMUT! Click if you're an adult PK oldbie!



1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?

I remember going through my usual buckloads of emails from various Yahoo groups and reviews when I came across The Email. I think I just smiled and was really pleased.

2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites?  Which of these indicators did you notice first?

Emails are usually what makes me aware. So yeah, emails.

3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

*scratches head* I dunno, it's been a year(literally)! I either posted it on the same day or waited a while...

4.  What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?

Well NAPPA's FFN profile directed me this way and I just visited the fanfic side for... months. Then as I joined the forums as a newbie I came across the message that said to apply. I shrugged and decided to try it out. To my surprise I was accepted...

Hi! Call me Kris. :)




1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?

I was pleased. I, uh, guess I was happy.... whistling.gif tongue.gif


2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites? Which of these indicators did you notice first?

Er....E-mail I think.

3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

I think it was like a day..maybe a little sooner.

4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?

I was "lured" on when I saw that it had J/L shipping. I didn't feel like becoming an author until I talked with Romy (Angel-Wing) and she encouraged me to give it a try.

Honestly, I hardly remember.... tongue.gif

Yep, I probably do. I know a lot more than many Wonks or other writers do about their own PK authorship stories.

At the very least most of this is probably well documented at Wonky.

Yeah, but only a few people bother to dig up Wonky threads.

QUOTE
My jaw dropped.

Oh come on, you knew we were going to accept you! I mean, at least 2 Fic Mods --Pat and myself-- invited you here! I even made a note in a Wonky Thread Index #__. It said that I'll let Pat approve your application since he volunteered to do it. He said, "if you [apply], let me know so I can approve [your application]".

Why'd you think I put those devil icons there, in my first post? Hah!


Kris, I remember you asked me if your application went through.

Hi! Call me Jennifer. :)




1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?

I was shocked, happy, and amazed at the same time. Honestly I wondered why I had been accepted. Oh, and not to mention relieved because it finally worked, thanks to Pen.

2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites? Which of these indicators did you notice first?

Erm...I think I got the email first, went through said emotions above, and then checked out the author's panel.

3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

I had to wait a day, I think, because my betas weren't done reading my first chapter. dry.gif

4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?

What lured me to Portkey originally was the new and exciting experience of meeting a bunch of HP fans online. I had never been on a message board before and I wanted to see what it was like. Best thing that's happened to me in years.

As for why I wanted to become a PK author...I was pressured. Some people read my ficlets and said I should, so deciding it wouldn't hurt to try I went ahead and tried to send in my application. Complete chaos. After spending some time in school PMing Pen we discovered that the apostrophe in my username was screwing everything up and she helped me fix it and send in my author's application. So really, all thanks goes to Pen. smile.gif

Jennifer

You're welcome. While re-reading this and other posts in 2008, I had the idea to make this H/H Ficlets Archive. People, go look for Jennifer's stories in there!
