    Coffee and Chocolate Deathly Hallows Spoiler Policy

    Happy Deathly Hallows Release Day!

    Well, since it’s finally here, I thought I’d take a quick moment to let y’all know what the Spoiler policy is here for those of you who might take a little longer to read the new book.

    Since I have quite a list to get through already, I will not rec any fan fiction here for the remainder of July and all of August that was written after the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. So fear not, gentle readers: everything posted here within that time frame will only allude to canon from the previous six books — though I make no guarantees that some of these author’s guesses might not be accurate. However, rest assured that, at the time all of those fics were written, they were still in fact only guesses and not canon.

    Starting September first, all bets are off. At that point, if you have not finished the book in English I seriously doubt you’d be able to avoid the spoilers anyway and any warning I might add will be mostly entirely useless. At some point in the future I’ll just have to go and remove all the spoiler notes anyway, which is a fair pain in the arse, and so I’m opting not to put any in.

    I am planning on creating some sort of graphic to indicate whether or not the fic is 100% canon friendly, so as to clearly mark them from the stories that are AU or have become AU by virtue of being written before Deathly Hallows was published. Why? Because if I were surfing this site, it’s something I would like to see, and since I’ve got all these admin-like powers, I figure why not? As in accordance with the general spoiler policy outlined above, this marker will not appear before September first so as not to appease the spoil-me-not readers.

    If by September first you have still not read Deathly Hallows and still somehow remain blissfully ignorant of plot details, then I would advise not clicking through to any fanfic dated as rec’d after August 31. You have been officially notified and warned.

    Happy reading!
