Elsie, can you float this? Thanks! Hi! OK, so I was looking through the messages, and realized something along the lines of "I like this person's story, but I wish I knew more about them".  So then I got thinking that maybe we could get to know each other here! *Imaginary Trumpets Play* So, you're probably wondering about the title, right? Well, it just so happens that The Elephant House is a cafe in Britain, one of the cafe's where JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter and the Philsosopher's Stone! So what do we do? ANYTHING! The Elephant House is like a virtual cafe!  Have conversations, ask questions, share book ideas, and get to know your fellow fanfictioners!   So.. I'll ask a few questions to get us started (NOTE: These are just basic guidelines, let your imagination go wild!) (ANOTHER NOTE: My answers are in pink)   What is your name?  Nicole   What State/Province do you live in?  Ontario!  That's right, I'm Canadian! :)  (AND DO NOT LIVE IN A IGLOO)   What is your favorite colour(s)?  Purple, Aqua   How old are you? 12   What are you currently writing? My new fanfic!  I'm also writing a novel (Or trying to, anyways).   How long have you been on The Stacks? I think since this Febuary, but have to check.   What is your favorite HP book?  Umm... I think Order of the Pheonix, but I like them all! You can basically talk about anything- as long as it is within the guidelines! Some things to talk about.... -School -Boys -TV shows or movies (PG please!) -HARRY POTTER! -Something you're writing -Upcoming stories -Anything else you can think of! Please reply and let's get the conversation going!     - Colie Bear AKA Nicole Witch, Mockingjay, Fairy, Half Blood, and Author. PROUD CANADIAN!

What is your name? Laura

What State/Province do you live in? Texas! (USA)

What is your favorite colour(s)? Purple, Neon Green

How old are you? 12

What are you currently writing? A couple new fanfics, and i stared writing a non hp related book, and i plan on continuing it, just not until after i finish with the fanfics

How long have you been on The Stacks? Since June of this year. So, about four months.

What is your favorite HP book? I can never choose between Order of the Phoenix and Half Blood Prince. But those two are defiantly my favorites.

i'm gonna use the "upcoming stories" topic....
i've posted prologues for two new stories i'm planning on writing. I haven't posted one for the second April Johnson, though, cause i'm terrible at sneak peaks and it doesn't have a prologue.
So, the second April Johnson will be the last full-length April story. But I'm not ready for everything April to die! I'm thinking of writing little 1-5 part stories of little things in April's life. Like maybe when she was younger. Like, when she get her first wand or get the letter from Hogwarts. Or maybe a little thing about where April and what she did when the Battle of Hogwarts was going on. Or even farther into the future, I could do a thing about April's kids (she has three... in the future). Little things like that.
Not only little stories about April, though. I think it would be fun to do something from the point of view of one of the Sky siblings (Matt, Ruby, and Jenny). Or from one of April's siblings (though I'm not as interested about doing that).
Then I wanted to do character profiles and back stories and things. That one's a maybe. If I do that, it would probably have more detailed descriptions of how the main character look(hair color, height,eye color, skin color, face shape, etc.), more about their family, and little facts about them (likes and dislikes, no matter how irrational. What their wands are made of. Birthdays, milestones, habits).

This is a really cool idea, Nicole (love that name, by the way. one of my cousin's also named Nicole). "Virtual Cafe". I'll come here often. :D

What is your name?  Daniella
 
What State/Province do you live in?  New Jersey, USA. MY COUSINS LIVE IN ONTARIO! THAT'S IN CANADA!
 
What is your favorite colour(s)?  Purple, Aqua, Turquoise, Jade Green (inspiration for first part of screenname), All shades of blue, green, and purple, pretty much.
 
How old are you? 12
 
What are you currently writing? Trying to write my fanfics but have been slacking off. Heh heh, just wrote slacking odd. Weird me being weird me. Meanwhile, I'm in the middle of developing a script for a playwriting contest I heard about! Will they let me write some songs for it? It'll be about a few adults fresh out of college, with big dreams of being stars and working as waiters and waitresses in a restaurant as they try to get their big breaks! So, it would be fun if there were songs...And still wondering whether I should go ahead with it even though I'm 12 and the characters I'm talking about are going to be at least 24 or 25.
 
How long have you been on The Stacks? Since the beginning of my summer vacay. So, since late June 2011.
 
What is your favorite HP book?  I like Order of the Pheonix narrowly, over Deathly Hallows by about .1...would have liked Deathly Hallows if Dobby and Fred hadn't died.
You can basically talk about anything- as long as it is within the guidelines!
Some things to talk about....
-School
-Boys
-TV shows or movies (PG please!)
-HARRY POTTER!
-Something you're writing
-Upcoming stories
-Anything else you can think of!
 
Adding some things...AVPM, AVPS, AVPT, STARSHIP, AND ANYTHING TEAM STARKID! If I could change my screenname, I would have changed it to starkid some sort of random number that Scholastic gives me, but I've been on a bit too long to change my name now.

OK, so it seems like we're starting to get the idea... great answers to the questions everyone, I'm really excited for all of the new stories we're going to have on this board.  Remember, this is a virtual cafe, so HAVE CONVERSATIONS!  Reply to other people's messages, suggest ideas, post random facts. 
So I'm going to start like a question of the week, which I want everyone to TRY to answer, so that we can get more ideas flowing.  They might be HP related, school related, or book or movie related. 
SO... the first question is...
 
HP: What is your favorite character and why?
School:  What is your favorite subject?  Why?
Book: What books (other than Harry Potter) do you like reading? Is there a particular genre you like?  Are any of your OC's based on characters from other books?
 
Remember... connect and comment!
If anyone has any suggestions, or ideas that they want feedback on, or questions about anything in life (as long as it is appropriate), feel free to post it!
PS:  I'm also going to try and get a newsletter going, so if you want to be a fanfic reviewer, an editor, or a new story updater, please reply to this message or in another one, stating why you want the job and why! 
PPS:  I'm also looking for someone to do a poll on different things each week... reply to this if you to do that!

HP: What is your favorite character and why?
Shockingly, I really like Ludo Bagman. I like him because he just sort of has this likeable personality and you just want to be around this guy.
 
School:  What is your favorite subject?  Why?
 I really like logic class, and foreign language because they're different classes you don't see in every public school. I'm starting to like Geometry and history. I'm growing to like Biology and... I have a couple other classes I like.
 
Book: What books (other than Harry Potter) do you like reading? Is there a particular genre you like?  Are any of your OC's based on characters from other books?
 I loved The Princess Bride by William Goldman, Contingency by Paula Wiseman (granted, it's more of an adultish book...but anyway); Ah...I'm reading Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone, because it's a really tough read, but it's been so tremendously incredible. I've got loads more that I loved, though.
I love dystopian fiction and fantasy stuff. Oddly, reading realistic fiction feels weird because it doesn't feel...real to me. I prefer capes to jackets, apparently.
I haven't really based any character off of another character that I know of.

Ah...other question suggestions:
~TV Shows
~Movies (but that could tie in with TV Shows)
~Hobbies (if we haven't asked that already)
I'd do anything you ask me to, Colie. So if you need anything, just holler!

What is your favorite colour(s)? Blue and tirqouise... oh, I just killed it. I'll learn to spell that word once, you'll see I will...
 
How old are you? 14
 
What are you currently writing? Um, nothing currently, BUT I'm planning to start a Hunger Games Alternate Universe fanfic, in which Prim do went to the Games. I'm also supposed to be writing a super-epic fanfic about Teddy Lupin but... I don't know. I made a quick plan and I'm like... poof. I don't think I'm ready for something so big yet :( I'm do gonna work on a couple of sequels for Exceed Expectations, though! Can't leave those guys behind!
How long have you been on The Stacks? More than a year and a half, I joined on February 2010

Hi!
OK, so I was looking through the messages, and realized something along the lines of "I like this person's story, but I wish I knew more about them". 
So then I got thinking that maybe we could get to know each other here!
*Imaginary Trumpets Play*
So, you're probably wondering about the title, right?
Well, it just so happens that The Elephant House is a cafe in Britain, one of the cafe's where JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter and the Philsosopher's Stone!
So what do we do?
ANYTHING!
The Elephant House is like a virtual cafe!  Have conversations, ask questions, share book ideas, and get to know your fellow fanfictioners!
 
So.. I'll ask a few questions to get us started
(NOTE: These are just basic guidelines, let your imagination go wild!)
(ANOTHER NOTE: My answers are in pink)

 
What is your name? Samantha (penname for everyone's convenience so they don't have to type out the dreadfully long series of characters on the top left corner of my posts which is my username...)
 
What State/Province do you live in? All I'm saying is I'm also from Canada (high five!). In a proper house. With heat. With cool(ish) weather outside. Gee, I was expecting a snowstorm today! (obvious sarcasm. Yeah, I have a habit of doing that.)
 
What is your favorite colour(s)? I have an awful lot (it says on my STACKS profile), but I'll just choose blue.
 
How old are you? 13. Almost.
 
What are you currently writing? Time Turned Upside Down/TTUD! And if there's any other ideas I get I'll suggest it here in the café and see what you guys think.
 
How long have you been on The Stacks? I think it was since August 2010.
 
What is your favorite HP book? Deathly Hallows, hands down.
You can basically talk about anything- as long as it is within the guidelines!
Some things to talk about....
-School
-Boys
-TV shows or movies (PG please!)
-HARRY POTTER!
-Something you're writing
-Upcoming stories
-Anything else you can think of!
Please reply and let's get the conversation going!

Hm, I can answer those questions!
 
Who's your favourite HP character and why? I may have mentioned it earlier, but in case not... LUNA LOVEGOOD! Aside from her eccentric personality I'm more impressed than creeped out/facepalm at her craziness by her super idealistic ideals (about Nargles, etc.). Bonus points on her sickeningly sweet innocence. :D
 
What is favourite subject? Why? With English I'm not having any problems, it's fun... yeah, I'll say that's my fave. Math's one too, given that my teacher is hilarious.
 
What books (other than HP) do you like reading? Is there a particular genre you like? Are any of your OCs based on characters from other books? Huh, I've a lot to elaborate on here... Anything that's in some way involved with magic I'll probably like, but if not then all I'll need is a pretty good plot; easily impressed person over here. I've lost count on how many fantasy books I've read over the past few years, however. As for the OC question... yes, I'll admit I've "borrowed" a thing or two from different places but I always have my own twist to both their personalities and their involvement in the plot to make up for it. Sort of; I do it out of appreciation (can you even call it that?!) for the character I based the OC on but said OC somehow ends up... unsatisfactory. *glares at Morrigan 'cause she's the only case on which this happened*
 

Coming up next in a couple days an actual blog thingy! By me! On TTUD! Hey, that rhymes!

OK... only 1 question this week, and I'm going to answer it because I feel like it!
PS:  Thanks to Lauren and Samantha (don't feel like looking up username spellings) for responding to the last question!
1. Why did you choose your username?  Is there a story behind your username?
Well... my username was chosen because when I was younger, my brother couldn't pronnounce my name properly, so he called me Colie instead of Nicole.  My dad thought that sounded like Koala, so he made it into Colie Bear, and that's one of my nicknames today!  (You can call me Colie, Nicole, Nikki, Nic, or anthing else you can think of!)

My username comes from a first attempt to make an account and TheaterChick, with the second 'c' was already taken. So my mom, being the clever woman she is, took that second 'c' out and shizam! I had a username. I like it because Theater is a huge part of me and Chik is like chick, but with a little bit of eccentricity (?) or eccentricness (?) anyway.

That's neat!
 
For how I got mine... If you've ever read/watched LOTR, or the Lord Of The Rings, the big bad's Sauron, in the form of some evil eye on a big tower, surrounded in black and the land of Mordor. Uh, yeah... my username's inspired from a bad guy, basically. Oh, well. I'm not a bad guy fan or anything; maybe I was sleepy (and thus not thinking straight) when I registered late at night. But as of the moment I'm content with my ominous, annoying-to-type-out username (I swear, pressing the Shift key all those times is beginning to drive me crazy).

i just picked random words then sounded cool together, then got the random number they gave me..... i signed in in june, so they had this weird system where they "helped" you make a username.

Really? Interesting... I always thought your username is inspired from the chapter in the Amber Spyglass that's entitiled "Abyss". But seeems like I really need to read LOTR finally. :smileywink:
