The DG Forum

Welcome, new members, to The DG Forum! We are a group of rather devout sailors of the Draco and Ginny ship. We are primarily a writing forum--if you're not interested, we strongly suggest you join a different forum.

So you want to become a member of one of the silliest forums ff.net offers? (Trust us, we have our reasons to make a such a boastful claim u_u)

We realize this whole forum thing might seem a bit overwhelming, so here is a list of steps to follow to make the process less painful.

What To Do:

1) Visit the MANIFESTO! thread, where you'll find a brief description of our humble abode, and a list of the rules we live by. One of our most fiercely guarded rules is: WATCH YOUR SPELLING AND GRAMMAR. Keep that in mind when you post and you'll save yourself a world of humiliation.

2) Come back HERE and introduce yourself! (the process is detailed below).

3) If you have questions, visit the Forum Help thread.

4) Visit The Lair of the Sorting Queen II and fill out the application to be sorted. This will also get you on the unofficial roster of regular members.

5) Remember to keep it PG-13 at all times and in all threads, or you will not be looked upon with kindness.

--------

How To Properly Introduce Yourself:

***This is the MANDATORY first post to become a part of the forum. Failure to introduce yourself in this thread prior to posting elsewhere will result in the swift deletion of your posts.***

It's no biggie. Just tell us a little about yourself. Step closer into the light that we may scrutinize you...

*A word of advice: don't provoke us. We are a nice enough lot, but some instances of wolf pack and/or piranha pack behavior have been observed in the past in response to outlandish claims and displays of grandeur by certain ill-advised newbies. (See Tragic Case of SPaG Queen).

*We recommend you obtain an avatar before attempting to join the forum. No one likes blank creepy outline guy. u_u

You should know this from reading the MANIFESTO! (since that is step one and this is step two), but to remind you:

- KEEP YOUR GRAMMAR AND SPELLING IN CHECK.

- NO NETSPEAK, with the exceptions of LOL, LMAO, and the occasional TTFN.

-----------

Your introduction post must include answers to the following:

1) What do you answer to? (i.e., RL name, nickname, initials. The shorter the better, as we are lazy. u_u)

2) At LEAST three random facts about yourself.

3) Favorite and least favorite pairings?

4) Chains or silk ropes?

5) Mammals or reptiles?

6) Emotional outburst or slow burn?

7) Snape or Lucius?

8) Canon or fanon?

9) Dramione - love it or hate it?

10) How did you find us? (as in: how did you find your way here?)

--------

That's it. Now go to the Common Room and join in the chaos. Beware the floor is often wet with various fluids that you don't really want to identify. Have fun!

If you would like to learn more about the forum members and certain incidents in the life of this community, a compilation of the life and times of the forum is now available: The Forum Lexicon.

Sirenidae

1) My name here is Sirenidae because that's the latin for Mermaid, but you can call me Nikki cuz that's my real name yo! (Okay that was weird)

2) a-I am a varsity swimmer at my college and I'm pretty good, if I do say so myself. Lol, but no really, I love it and I went to Nationals this past year!!! wooot!!! okay that's enough bragging

b- I am addicted to the band 311. Shout out to anyone who loves them for they are my favorite band EVER. And no bashing them becuase I will hurt you. Just kidding, I won't, but I will be very upset.

c - obviously I love FanFiction, but I don't think I have to mention that here so...my OTHER fact is....

d - Well I can't decide between me being an art and creative writing major and me being absolutely enamored with the t.v. show SUPERNATURAL. okay that's all

3) Draco Ginny, dur and I hate cannon pairings when it has to do with Harry and Ginny because every time I think about their happy little family that JK Rowling created, I want to vomit. Although I have nothing against JK, she is awesome you understand...but that damn epilouge...

4) Silk ropes...made from human hair...from my back. (woops a POTC slip...man I love those movies)

5) My favorite animal is a shark...don't ask why. And I obviously like repitles...snakes and dragons. Because they remind me of...well you know...

6) Ooooh slow burn definetly!!! I heart angsnt

7) GOD damn it! well if you're going to make me choose.....I choose YOU! Snape-chu

8) Oh both definetly both

9) um I've written it...but in my defense it's because I love Draco and I was inspired by AkashatheKitty. And I swear that's the only one I'll write.

10) Er...I forget...but I'm pretty sure it had something to do with creeping on subarang's profile :)

Also...I think I'm a pretty hilarious person so...don't be annoyed when it turns out that I'm not. tee hee

Welcome Nikki. I was happy to see your name come up on our Who's Who roster.

Next you'll want to head over to the Sorting Lair and post a few more answers for us there and then join in the craziness of the Common Room and start looking around.

Also...I think I'm a pretty hilarious person so...don't be annoyed when it turns out that I'm not.

No problem that, as long as you don't claim that you are the funniest person alive and then have the sense of humour of Filch you'll be just fine.

But do watch out for the SPaG nazis, that is my only word of caution to you dear. Welcome to the funhouse.

Nik and Nikki. Ooooooh.

I won't be confused.

Anyway, welcome. You seem like an entertaining one. Hope to talk to you soon. ^_^

I am addicted to the band 311.

You can sit here by me. *pats couch*

I LOVE 311! ^_^

Oh, and, uh-- yeah. The rest of your post was nice, too. u_u

Welcome! :D

1) What do you answer to? (i.e., RL name, nickname, initials. The shorter the better, as we are lazy. u_u)

RoS or Reign

2) At LEAST three random facts about yourself.

I am double jointed in my left hand. I have seen Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint in real life. I love chocolate.

3) Favorite and least favorite pairings?

Fav - Draco/Ginny, Scorpius/Rose. Least favourite - Don't like to ship bash but I'd have to probably say Dumbledore/Giant Squid :P

4) Chains or silk ropes?

Silk ropes. More Malfoy-esque I believe.

5) Mammals or reptiles?

Mammals

6) Emotional outburst or slow burn?

Slow burn

7) Snape or Lucius?

Snape - he is my favourite character in the entire series.

8) Canon or fanon?

Both. Without Canon we wouldn't have Fanon.

9) Dramione - love it or hate it?

Can tolerate it, though I have pro pure-blooded leanings.

10) How did you find us? (as in: how did you find your way here?)

GoldenFawkes reviewed one of my stories and mentioned the forum :)

rowan-greenleaf

Welcome, Reign. I'm Rowan. ^_^

Two things caught my attention about your post:

-Snape is your favorite character. (Yay! *high fives* Mine is Lucius, but I adore Snape. It's incredibly frustrating to me that intelligent, perceptive people haven't learned to appreciate him. *glances at Leigh pointedly*)

-You said Golden reviewed one of your stories -- plural. Lately we haven't gotten that many active D/G writers, so I snooped around your profile a bit. u_u *waves hand*

If you're looking for good D/G recs or you have good recs to make, definitely check out our rec threads. I can't link right now (I'm at school and they block copy/paste), but check out our HP Fic Recommendations thread and our Must-read D/G One-Shots thread. And our OUR Recs thread, too.

Anyway, yeah, make yourself at home. ^_^

Heck yes! Same here! I love that man.

And, welcome, Reign. I'm Vicky. I hope you stick around.

Aerileigh

Hello, Reign! Without sounding terribly fangirly, I have to say that I love more than one of your stories (I don't think they're all on ffnet). I think you'll find many people here who share your love for the finer, darker things--and I'm very glad you're here.

^_^

Rowan...no need for glaring, darling. I just like my men to have clean hair and self-confidence. A la Malfoy. Is that perceptive? Perhaps not. But it's a Friday and I'm feeling shallow.

7/10/2009 #12
scubarang

Welcome Reign. I have enjoyed your stories at FIA and I'm glad to see you here. I see that you have a few stories here that I haven't read before so I think I will start reading A Walk In The Sky tonight. I may even read Deliver Me From Evil again as it has been a while.

I loved your Dangerous Liaisons, there are quite a few D/G versions of this but I find that yours is not as over the top as some of the others. And your latest, The Pureblood Society is lovely. Kim (Boogum) is most deserved of your praise and you will meet her soon no doubt.

I see that you have followed the instructions and posted in the Sorting Lair so we shall look forward to seeing you in the Common Room soon.

Hybrid-Kothari

Hi Ros, welcome to The Dull- that's the name this place goes by. I'm Giane, or Gin.

You seem to be very popular among the D/G writers, so don't be too surprised when you find a review from me, ok?

I hope you stick around for long. This place is sometimes a little bit overwhelming from the quantity of email you would be getting, but it's pure fun.

7/10/2009 . Edited 7/10/2009 #14
ClosedAccount2012

You guys rock! Thanks for the warm welcome, and I will most definitely be around to stay :)

Rowan - Snape is the most complex character out of the whole series, what we found out in Deathly Hallows just absolutely blew my mind. I love that guy :) I will definitely take a look at the recs, though I daresay I've probably read them all teehee.

Vicky - Hi! And thanks :) I'm glad you love Snape too, he's just so multi-faceted!

Aerileigh - If you're talking about Yours Forever, Ginny or Innocent Eyes, I actually took those down recently due to the fact that they made me cringe with their cliches and bad SPaG (the terrors of having written them in my early teens LOL). Oh and I share your love of the refined Malfoy looks though I much prefer Draco :)

Scubarang - This is my fifth attempt at getting all my stories up at FIA and I'm really determined this time! Boogum can back me up on that haha. Let me give you a piece of advice, don't read A Walk In The Sky if you can help it. It is another fic that I wrote when I was young and it still makes me cringe but I didn't have the heart to take it down because its the first piece I ever finished :s Anyway, thanks heaps, I really appreciate it :)

Gin - Your post was so sweet! I'll make sure to stick around, I'm glad to find even more DG shippers!

7/10/2009 #15

Reign, join us in the CR! Right now!

This is not a request. *thunder*

But seriously, c'mon over.

Element's Sole Protector

Um, what's up? I'm Element's Sole Protector...and I will be right back because I need to copy-paste those questions.

*rushes off*

*rushes back*

1) At LEAST three random facts about yourself.

I) Every time I post on forums lately, people seem to never reply. Is it me? TELL ME IT'S NOT ME!!!

II) I love stuffed animals and Pokémon waaaaaaaaay too much, but at least I got over that first obsession...

III) I tend to steal other people's awesome sayings when I can't find my own.

2) Let us know who your favorite pairings are (and your least favorite as well).

Pairings I Love: Harry/Hermione, Draco/Ginny (so HOT!!!), Albus/Minerva, Snape/(...someone meaningful)

Pairings I Hate (a.k.a. I Would Only Read These Under Torture): Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Snape/James (does this even exist?), Parent/Child in general (...don't ask), and really, reeeaaalllllllllllllly crosses-the-line Snape/Harry.

3) Chains or silk ropes?

Errrrm.... chains? Whichever one I could get out of the easiest, I suppose...

4) Mammals or reptiles?

Mammals. Kangaroos are SO CUTE!!!

5) Emotional outburst or slow burn?

Slow burn until the core overheats.

6) Snape or Lucius?

What kind of question is--crap, I hate choosing!

I love Snape. There's just something about his snarkiness...

7) Canon or fanon?

8) Dramione-love it or hate it?

Would you hate me if I said I avoid it at all costs?

9) How did you find us? (as in: how did you find your way here?)

Well, you see... I was bored with nothing new to read, and so I thought I'd look at forums for a while, and when I found this one I was like "...Sure, why not?"

That's probably the most boring thing ever, but oh well...

7/10/2009 #17
VickyVicarious

I) Every time I post on forums lately, people seem to never reply. Is it me? TELL ME IT'S NOT ME!!!

I'd have to get to know you before I could answer that. Or give you the silent treatment, as the case may be.

II) I love stuffed animals and Pokémon waaaaaaaaay too much, but at least I got over that first obsession...

Ah, Pokemon. (I still have a big box of cards.) Ah, stuffed animals. (My bed is piled; I never even got over that, ha.)

I love Snape. There's just something about his snarkiness...

Every times someone picks Snape, I'm disposed to like them.

Welcome, got at nickname? I'm Vicky.

Element's Sole Protector

HOW DID I MISS NUMBER 7?

7) Canon or fanon?

*looks around* Sorry, JKR.

I loooooooooove fanon. Canon just makes me sad lately...all those deaths... Plus, with fanon I get to read about the craziest and the most realistic things happening to some of my favorite characters in books (and don't try to tell me they're not real, it doesn't work!)

7/10/2009 #19

Hi, Vicky!

Oh, nickname--you can call me Element, ESP, or Criminally-Insane, or Kitsune... if there's not already a fox here.

7/10/2009 #20

Kitsune's not taken...

Though I might shorten that to Kit if you don't mind and I feel lazy.

Anyway: Sorting Lair, then come join us in the CR!

Hi Kit. Welcome. I see you've already posted in the Lair, so your next steps are:

1. Do not disappear (if you wish to leave and never come back, be a dear and let me know)

2. Post in other threads, often.

Thank you!

Not a fan of anything with Snape

Well, that's unfortunate. Do you like D/G at all?

8) Canon or fanon?

Meh. Canon = original writings of J.K. Rowling, fanon = what we mere mortals do to screw up her perfect Ginny loves Harry universe. *cringes*

Haven't given it a try
