Welcome post A community for anything related to Cedric Diggory, this includes fiction, art, manipulations, vids, and general discussion.
In order to combat fandom fractionalizing, this comm brings it all together ... as long as it has to do with Cedric. Fiction? Any pairing welcome here (het or slash) -- or none. Any rating, any length. Visual art? Same deal. Discussion? Have at it. One-stop shopping for Cedric.
But because this is one-stop shopping POLITENESS REIGNS. Please. That means if it's not your pairing or preference, don't read or look at it. No flaming, no posts about how "idiotic" one pairing is over another, etc. And yes, actually, that includes pairings that aren't directly related to Cedric. We'll have no wars here between the Harry/Hermione contingent versus the Ron/Hermione contingent ... or anything else. That, btw, includes Jo, herself. If you've come here to bitch about how you hate her writing, Harry Potter, and etc., er ... why are you here?
Please note, there is a difference between flaming, and polite or constructive criticism. Flaming and ad hominem attacks are not welcome, polite or constructive criticism is fine. Also when posting discussion or comments or what-have-you, please always keep in mind the difference between a "fact" (Cedric Diggory is a fictional wizard in the Harry Potter universe) and an "opinion" (I think Robert Pattinson's Cedric was the best thing since sliced bread, OR Cedric is Teh Gay).
Because this comm does cover a lot of potential ground, we ask for a little assistance from posters. It would be terrific if in the Header you could preface your subject with FIC, ART, VID, MANIP, or TALK. Also, if you're bringing fiction, art or something with a title, please include a header something like this:
TITLE: AUTHOR: SUMMARY (if applicable): CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: WARNINGS/RATING: (Anything else we should know:)
That above is a suggestion, not a hard and fast rule; add to or subtract from it as necessary. But if you're bringing fiction, we really, really suggest you not neglect a summary. We also insist on the use of GJ cuts for long posts, please!!! Show consideration to your fellows. Anything lengthy (e.g., stories, big art, etc.) that does NOT appear inside a cut will have 24 hours to be corrected and then it'll be deleted. Please always double-check your post once you've made it!
Adult Material: Is welcome, but if your story or visual contribution contains it, please so indicate. We do not require ratings, but we do require a clear indication of adult material within. If your contribution contains material that may be disturbing or potentially offensive, please indicate as much in warnings (which are in addition to the "adult" rating). If telling WHAT the "disturbing content" is would seriously undermine the plot, then it doesn't have to be spelled out, but it should be clear that this story (or art piece or vid) contains potentially disturbing content. If I have readers complaining to me that so-and-so had Cedric and Amos performing hot monkey sex on the kitchen table in front of mum and there was no indication that it was more than "adult" ... er, I'm going to ban some arses.
Remember, as this comm is one-stop-shopping, minors may join and posts are not (at least at present) moderated, so ALL adult material should be clearly marked and squirreled away behind cuts (or even hosted on one's own website or journal). I do not mind the use of links to other journals or websites here.
If you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
