Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!

A year ago today (July 21) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released into the world, bringing to an end (at least for now) arguably the most beloved book series in the history of literature.  Looking back on all seven masterfully-crafted books, there are still so many questions to ask and answer and so many avenues to explore.  That is what hpmssgmoments (Harry Potter Missing Moments) is going to try to do.

With that in mind, I welcome you to a very different sort of Harry Potter fanfiction community which hopefully will be fun and worthwhile for many of us who are still absorbing and enjoying the Harry Potter universe.  

The idea of this "Missing Moments" community is this:  The community is intended to be a place where canon-based missing moment and alternate point-of-view fictions from the Harry Potter universe can be listed, sorted, cross-referenced, and encouraged.

Please find more information under the cut.


Obviously, there are many, many "missing moment" stories already in existence and my goal is that this community will allow the majority of them to be organized so that they are readily accessible and we can see the complex patterns of all seven books really start to develop.  I firmly believe that the Harry Potter books are at least as rich in what is not written as what is.  If you feel the same, please join with me in this exciting new way of experiencing everything Harry Potter!

I've never run an LJ community before, and I expect that I will make plenty of missteps and mistakes.  Please let me know if you have any suggestions, concerns, questions, or comments.  Also, please feel free to join the community and dust off some old stories to submit and give them another chance to shine for a new batch of readers. 

Most importantly, spread the word about the community through your journals and web pages.  Nothing kills writers' enthusiasm faster than submitting a story and no one bothering to read it.  I hope that we can make slow but steady growth of both stories and writers/readers.  

So, in the words of Albus Dumbledore: Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak! 

Let the feasting begin!

Random Missing Moment Prompt:

Thrusday means Goblet of Fire, so from Chapter 21: Harry thoroughly enjoyed double Divination that afternoon; they were still doing star charts and predictions, but now that he and Ron were friends once more, the whole thing seemed very funny again. Professor Trelawney, who had been so pleased with the pair of them when they had been predicting their own horrific deaths, quickly became irritated as they sniggered through her explanation of the various ways in which Pluto could disrupt everyday life.
