Featured Stories and Temperance

by Elena @ 09/05/2021 06:56 am  
I have finally updated the Featured Stories list and will keep that going. This month I have a spotlight on Dramione because it's Mother's Day today here in Australia, and I love Dramione :)

I also have a poll running about Temperance, which is Gluttony's Forums. I haven't had traffic in quite some time, so trying to see if people still like using forums.

HPFF

by Elena @ 01/01/2020 05:19 pm  
I started out in Fan Fiction on HPFF and was sad when Jay announced he was closing the site.

Today, it has a new life with new owners and new rules. While I cannot host Smut due to laws in Australia, HPFF is now accepting Smut or NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stories.

I hope to see you guys there:

Goodbye 2019, hello 2020 :)

by Elena @ 31/12/2019 01:27 pm  
While we celebrate moving into a new decade, my country is on fire. Lives have been lost, history has been destroyed, and families are homeless.

There isn't a "Happy New Year" for many people in Australia today.

So today I thank the men and women who are throwing themselves in front of these fires to protect people, homes, history, businesses, and animals.

thankyou

Merry Christmas

by Elena @ 24/12/2019 05:30 pm  
I hope everyone enjoys their holidays and stays safe. See you all in 2020 :)

This site is down at the moment. It's a known issue, so some banners may not work until it is fixed.

Tinypic

Tinypic is shutting down. Please replace your graphics as needed as I will have to. By the end of the month, all broken images will be removed, or as I find them.

R.I.P. Morgana

by Elena @ 03/09/2018 09:52 am  
It is with great sadness that I write these words. Morgana or Morgana67 on HPFF passed away suddenly. Losing one of our own hits hard as I've known Morgana for many years and we were friends on social media too.

I have Featured her stories as we remember her words, her passion, and inspiration that she shared with us. You are welcome to leave messages for her in the reviews section.

HPFT - Different Archive

by Elena @ 02/05/2018 10:00 am  

With the closure of HPFF, there is also another archive that is active with a small community of people. Check it out if you like as you may gain a new audience or find an old one.




HPFT





You can try out HPFanficTalk (or HPFT). It has a multi-fandom/OF archive and a Harry Potter-themed forum (including a year-long house cup and common rooms for each house). There are a lot of reviewing events and review request threads on the forums, as well as a tool to help any authors who used to publish at HPFF and backed up the reviews people left them there transfer those reviews over to HPFT's archive pretty painlessly.



The archive is moderated, but there's no limit to how many chapters you can put in at once and the archive staff are usually pretty fast at working through it. They're pretty permissive in what they allow, provided the right ratings/advisories are attached to the story, and they're very friendly and happy to help (including adding fandoms/characters/pairings that aren't on the archive yet if you have a story for it). They're also very active on social media.

Emails and Changes

by Elena @ 12/04/2018 10:25 am  

Hi there :)


My computer died and I did not have my gluttony email set up on my laptop, so I'm sorry if there is any delay in getting back to you. I've figured out how to access my webmail and filtering through the spam. I'll get it set up tonight so I don't miss any more emails, so I do apologise.


If there is anything on Gluttony that needs changing to accommodate your stories that doesn't conflict with the ToS, please let me know. Recently, a member brought it to my attention that I had a maximum word count so their story wouldn't post. This has now changed to no maximum words.

HPFF closure

by Elena @ 08/04/2018 02:28 am  
If any HPFFers would like transfer their stories from HPFF to gluttonyfiction.com, I am happy to validate your stories right away to avoid queue backlog. I'll check that your story is on HPFF, and if so, validate your stories straight away. If you were a Trusted Author there, snapshot that to me and I'll grant you the same access. This is a one time offer and I'll keep it open till HPFF closes. My ToS is similar to HPFF, so I have no hesitation in this offer.




Otherwise, I DO HIGHLY recommend HPFT and AO3.

Changing Servers

by Elena @ 07/11/2017 03:16 pm  

Gluttony and Temperance will have some down time as I move the site to a more economical hosting server. I apologise for any inconvenience and will let you know when the site is ready to go.


Hall of Fame - Winners

by Elena @ 05/08/2017 02:30 pm  

Congratulations :) Can the winners please contact me either by PM on Temperance or emailing me: admin[at]gluttonyfiction[dot]com so I can organise your vouchers. Awards and PDF versions of the awards are available from Temperance: Hall of Fame - Winners.

Best Ship: We have a tie. SiruslyPeeved for Severus/Lily in Unwritten and datbenik513 for Hermione/Harry/Luna in Shadowlands


Best Story: What Goes Around...Comes Around... by Holly Ilex


Best Fan Girl/Boy: Again, we have a tie: Holly Ilex and Gubby


MAJOR AWARDS:

Best Member: BKL8008 - Keith, while a silent member now, was one of Gluttony's biggest supporters over the years. He always wanted to help, try and advertise, participated in competitions and even made some badges for prizes. I am honoured to have him as a member here at Gluttony.

Best Author: ginwannabe - Choosing this category was hardest. There are so many wonderful authors on Gluttony so I chose based on the most favourited author. This also accompanied my decision along with Taryn's participation over the years in competitions and also helping with the site.

Best Reviewer: By far the easiest to decide upon, Holly Ilex with a massive 790 reviews on Gluttony. Holly was also always part of Gluttony's review-a-thons and I always looked forward to seeing her reviews. Thank you :)

I'm so sorry - Hall of Fame Awards

by Elena @ 02/08/2017 06:16 am  
I'm so sorry. I've got sick kids at the moment and my blood pressure is up - only 5 weeks to go till baby comes. I'll get these awards and announcements out in the next couple of days. Vouchers will be purchased and sent out by the 10th.

Featured Stories - Hall of Fame Awards

by Elena @ 24/06/2017 06:37 am  

I have Featured the stories on Gluttony that are nominated in the Hall of Fame awards to make it easier to get to. Remember, voting opens for two weeks on July 3rd. For any new members, this is a chance to see how our comps and awards works so if you want a chance to win/participate - have a look around the forums. If I get enough interest, I can re-open the Review-a-Thon which was always crazy fun :)

Hall of Fame Awards - Nominees

by Elena @ 18/06/2017 04:18 pm  

The Hall of Fame awards has begun. I have just posted the Nominees for Best Story, Best Fan Girl/Boy, and Best Ship. You do have to be a part of Temperance, the forums, to vote - However, voting will not commence till 03 July, 2017.



All Nominees were selected by previous wins/or nominations (if not enough members to fill nominee spots) in the P.I. Awards and/or being in the top categories on Gluttony.



As some nominees may be gone from Fan Fiction - or moved on to other sites, if you recognise a pen name, give them a poke to let them know. I will contact each member, but Gluttony/Temperance may have old information.



The nominees are:



Best Story:



What Goes Around...Comes Around...by Holly Ilex



Of Dogs and Dragons by Labby



Circle of Love by juls



Redemption of Malfoy by gnilworkj



In a Family Way by Georgia Weasley



Best Fan Girl/Boy:



Holly Ilex


Labby


Reallyginny


Ford The Prefect


Gubby



Best Ship:



Romina Stephanie for James/Lily in Stars Shining Bright


Pookha for Dudley/Lavender in Dudley and Lavender: A Love Story


SiruslyPeeved for Severus/Lily in Unwritten


datbenik513 for Hermione/Harry/Luna in Shadowlands


Georgia Weasley for Draco/Asteria in Enough*



*Entry allowed as all nominees were picked from winning in the P.I. Awards. To be fair, Georgia Weasley's story won in 2010 (Winner for Best Ship (Harry Potter)), so I wanted her to have a chance in the Hall of Fame Awards - But her story had been deleted from the archive. She has reposted what was re-written of her story today so it can be read.

Pure Indulgence Awards - Hall of Fame

by Elena @ 04/06/2017 01:23 pm  

I will be kickstarting the Hall of Fame Awards off at midnight on the 19th of June (Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST)). I will list the chosen nominees for Best Story, Best Fan Girl/Boy, and Best Ship. I will have this nomination open for two weeks before opening the voting for two weeks. I'd like for people to be able to read the authors nominated to vote before voting begins. Voting will run from midnight on the 3rd of July to 11:59pm on the 16th of July (AEST).



During this time, I'll be deliberating who will take the three major Hall of Fame titles: Best Member, Best Author, and Best Reviewer.



I will announce all winners and allocate prizes/awards on the 17th of July.



Happy Fan reading 😊

The Pure Indulgence Awards 2017

by Elena @ 13/05/2017 04:21 pm  

I will host these in October. Samples and a poll for interest is listed on the forums. You do need to be a member of the forum to participate. I have created a poll on Gluttony too, to register interest. I do have a baby due in September, so I do need to know if the interest is there to host these :) Please poke your friends, post your stories, read and review so you can nominate or be nominated. I have MANY categories, so people generally walk away with an award or two.

Hall of Fame Awards

by Elena @ 25/03/2017 02:03 am  

The Hall of Fame awards will be held later this year. I will have 3 categories (Best Story, Best Fan Girl/Boy, Best Ship) that can be voted by peers with the winners receiving an Award and a $10 Amazon e-Voucher. Those that are nominated, all I ask is that you update your account with your current email address so the winner can receive their voucher or email me your details to admin[at]gluttonyfiction[dot]com.



3 separate categories will be picked by myself. These categories are: Best Member ($30 e-Voucher), Best Author ($20 e-Voucher), and Best Reviewer ($20 e-Voucher) and an Award.



The nominees cannot be nominated by members. I will base my selection on various criteria for example, but not limit to: activity on site past/present, the site stats, previous competitions and awards.



This is open to all Members and Authors on Gluttony as end of 31/12/2016.



This may be an annual event. It will depend on interest and participation.



For any new members or potential members - this is an opportunity, not just to be a part of a community of awesome people who share your passion, but to also have the chance to be recognised and thanked by your peers for being a 'fan'. This world is ours - how little or how much you want to be a part of it is up to you 😊

Hall of Fame Awards and P.I. Awards

by Elena @ 26/02/2017 01:28 pm  

I will be announcing details in the coming weeks.


The Hall of Fame Awards cannot be nominated for, but voting can take place in some categories.


The P.I. Awards will possibly go ahead in August if the members come back for it. I did try in 2010, but no-one came back to the site to participate. This is for YOU to thank your favourite Authors, reviewers, graphic artist etc. So please spread the word and hopefully 2017 will see people being Awarded.


New Skins

by Elena @ 07/01/2017 06:57 am  

I have added new skins. If you find any glitches, please let me know. Otherwise, enjoy :)

Competitions Closed

by Elena @ 25/12/2016 12:18 pm  

Gluttony used to host the fun Review-A-Thons and other comps where Amazon Gift Vouchers and other prizes were won by members. As the site, has slowed, the competitions section is now closed. If we pick up in members and get enough for participation, I will re-open this section.



Prizes were/are all out of my pocket - Gluttony (a.k.a. Me) will NEVER ask for donations for hosting, site costs, or prizes. This site is here purely for fans to share with other fans.
