Taking it a step further

Our experiences with Phoenix Rising, Harry Potter fandom and New Orleans inspired us to take things a step further and create Tears of the Phoenix, a nonprofit literary charitable organization that is currently accepting submissions of stories and art for an anthology whose profits will benefit Rebuild New Orleans Public Library.

Seeking: pictures for publications

Hey everyone,

I know that a lot of you managed to get more (and better) pictures than I did during Phoenix Rising, so I have a favor to ask. We continue to get international requests from the media for stories and pictures, and I wondered if any of you had some photos (or even videos) that you wouldn't mind sharing.

Specifically, we're seeking the following to have on hand:

action shots of Quidditch (and/or match video files, and link to a place it can be seen online, if available)
pictures that you have of yourself in action as a presenter
pictures of you in action working on your craft (like, you knitting a Streeler or writing a drabble or sketching at Artists and Authors Night)
pictures of the Overture Dinner where it's difficult to recognize any one person (crowd shots)
pictures of the Masquerade Ball where people are dancing and it's difficult to recognize any one person (crowd shots)

Unfortunately, we can't use posed shots for these requests.

Please e-mail photos and videos to me at hallie@thephoenixrises.org as soon as possible with your real name and a statement that we may use your pictures. There is no payment available, and while we'll pass your name on as the photographer/videographer, we can't guarantee that any of your work will be used, that all of the media outlets will give you credit for your work if they do use it--or that the story will be online (or even in English).

Thanks so much in advance for your help! We'll have an edition of From Ash and Flame online at fromashandflame later today, and will keep you updated on stories about fan activities and pre-Deathly Hallows excitement as they become available.

I'm making a desperate plea to those of you who attended the Grad Party at Phoenix Rising - if you took any pictures, can you send them my way or at least send me a link?

Hey all! hpbookcrossing released a number of books during Phoenix Rising, most, to my knowledge, in the Room of Requirement. If you were one of the fantastic people that nabbed a free book, please, please go to BookCrossing and log the book as being captured. The best part of BookCrossing is getting to track the journey of the books we set free!

Presentation Videos

I have uploaded 2 videos from a presentation. I arrived a bit late, but as soon as I giggled in the slightest, I checked my programming book to see if video was allowed and then started recording. This is the presentation Stop Cruelty Towards Magical Creatures. I'm sure you remember "the crazy C.R.A.P. lady" - her presentation seriously wins at life.

OK to all the people that were asking us (Atlanta_HP) about getting your very own Weasley is our King Tee Shirts now you can!

I have a link below to a picture of some of us wearing the lovely shirts. People took pictures of the back of our shirts I just haven't come across them yet. Just so you all know the backs have the lyrics printed on them.


Just email me with the size (up to 5X) and type (Anti or Pro Ron). They are $15 each plus $5 shipping. ($1 extra for 2X and 3X, $1.50 extra for 4X and 5X). And I will send you a paypal invoice.
