Welcome to THE PETULANT POETESS, a moderated online fiction archive dedicated to both Harry Potter Fanfiction and Original Stories and Poetry.

The Petulant Poetess archive was founded by NotSoSaintly in April of 2005 with the idea of creating a friendly atmosphere, dedicated to guiding and encouraging budding authors as well as accommodating the more seasoned writer. Stories going through the moderation process receive a final polishing through communication with the author with the express intent of presenting quality stories for the reader. A list of hard-working admins who contribute their free time out of love for the craft of writing and helping others may be found on the About Us page.

So grab a story off the shelf, pull up a chair, and get comfortable; the library is open, the tea (or coffee if you prefer) is hot, and everyone is welcome.

Please note that access to adult-rated stories requires a membership, which is restricted to people over the age of majority. View our Terms of Use and Compliance Statement for more information. Our Submission Rules are readily available to all writers who wish to post with us.

Hosting, TPP, and Thou
When TPP was in crisis four years ago, our community rallied together with an auction to save the site. Generous people offered the fruits of their creative labours, and other generous people bid and won those fruits. We were able to pay for two years of hosting for the site.

Two years ago the threat of losing the site and everything archived here once again reared its head. Together, we got past that hurdle, as well.

We must ask once more for your generosity to help us pay the bill due in a few days; fees, once paid, that will allow us to continue enjoying the TPP community's creativity and skill for another two years. With other HP archives rapidly disappearing, it is more important now than ever to preserve our archive and our community: if we come together, as each are able, we're confident we can do this. 

We appreciate the support of our fanfiction community in every aspect: the artwork, stories, and poetry created by our generous authors and artists; the reviews from our avid readers that form the bond between author and audience; and the patience, support, and kindness shown the hardworking members of our volunteer admin team. We have spent the past ten years building each other up, building the archive - your continuing financial support helps keep us alive.

Our PayPal Donate button (and Not So Saintly's old message, back from the days when our benefactress was able to support the rising cost of servers herself) is here: http://thepetulantpoetess.com/donation.php
