HTML codes to use other features, such as italics, or bold or chapter break, etc. I think the instructions can also be found on the site. (2/2)

If you meant uploading @missyanne, yes, as far as I'm aware the format has to be plaintext, or you could copy/paste your chapter in the chapter box. You could also use HTML codes (1/2)
06/25/20 02:40 pm London Time
Do you mean uploading?
06/25/20 02:40 pm London Time
I have no idea. How are you downloading them? And from where? This site? Are you using a certain browser? Operating system? Link?
06/22/20 02:00 am London Time
Ach! It's been forever since I downloaded a new chapter. I can't seem to download my file unless it's plaintext, Am I doing something wrong?
06/20/20 03:41 am London Time
Yes, As long as Snape and Harry interaction is a main part of the story. :)
06/20/20 02:57 am London Time
I have a story on A03 that focuses on Harryís parentage as the Dark Lordís son, and Severitus is in the background. Can I post it on here? Itís incomplete, though.

Hi! When does the Triwriting Championship open for business?
06/14/20 09:58 am London Time
It sounds familiar... I'm thinking maybe something with "Emerald" in the title?

For some other good fics that were not mentioned yet. The Moment of Impact series by Suite Sambo. The Guiltless and The Poor Of God pairing. Perception Is Everything. These are worthy of re reads!!!!
