Who are the people who carry the pimp cane? (So glad you asked!)
We are writers, readers and artists of the Harry Potter fandom who value creativity, originality and an open mind.
It matters not if you're a newbie, oldbie or a lurker. We embrace all pairings, het, slash, gen, poetry, prose and the many forms that art morphs into.
Sound like you? Then you're in the right place!

Under the age of consent:
*To join this community you have to be above the age of consent in your country of origin. If you are not, the mods take NO responsibility for your actions and what you find here. (we have a hard enough time keeping ourselves out of trouble! heh.)
Our Active Challenges:
-- On their way --
electricandroid, dacro, and dmitchell1985 (so far, and we do have some silent partners as well)
Da RULES! (ok, we don't have many, but there are a few things that should be mentioned)
1) Please warn for any sexual behaviour involving underage characters in your heading (also see rule #9 below) Whether or not to warn for other things is totally up to you.
2) No RPS (real people shipping). Keep the stories/art focused on the characters they portray, not the men or women themselves (i.e. Snape stories are fine, but Alan Rickman stories are not.) Crossovers with Boy Bands or anyone else who is a real person are not allowed. (and you will be slapped for good measure)
3) You are welcome to put as many plot bunnies up for adoption as you desire. But do credit the author of the bunny if you use their idea for your story/artwork. It is common courtesy (and keeps you on their Christmas list).
4) Please try for originality - or at least attempt an interesting twist on a cliché. And I know we shouldn't have to say it, but plagiarism is RIGHT OUT! :)
5) We do not require you to have a beta (proof-reader). However, if your story has repeated mistakes such as grammar, spelling, etc., we will kindly request that you find a beta. As always, there are people here willing to help out.
6) All Stories are rated by the author/artist. They have full control and responsibility over who they wish to read their work. the_pimp_cane is not liable for any stories or pieces of art which you may feel have been mis-rated.
7) We ask that all members try to leave constructive feedback as often as possible - even if it's just one line. There's no better feeling than knowing that people are reading/viewing your work. Comments are like pumpkin juice for the soul!
8) Flaming, Trolling, or making any other vicious nuisance of yourself in any way, shape or form, will not be tolerated. (and you will be publicly spanked!) You will normally be given one chance, then be placed on moderated status. Finally - if there is a continued problem - you will be
9) The mods reserve the right to pull any story or post which does not respect the guidelines given below (modeled upon those of the Inkstained Fingers Website):
Rules concerning underage characters:
a) No fiction involving explicit sex with a character under age 12 is allowed, although indirect references to such activity are allowed if necessary to the story (i.e., hints of child abuse).
b) In stories with a character between 12 and 15, they must be showing signs of puberty (i.e., growing pubic hair, voice changing, developing breasts, etc.)
c) When in doubt, email the moderators at [tpc.comm at gmail dot com] and ask them to review the story. These stories will be moderated by at least 3 people - and majority vote wins.
10) Have fun! Meet your fellow members! Join the challenges! Above all, give us your feedback and suggestions. It's you who make a community what it is and what it could be!
Open spaces are still available.
