"...and really excellent sugar quills, which you can suck in class
and just look like you're thinking what to write next..." (Ron
Weasley, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban)
"Oh, look they've got deluxe sugar quills
those would last hours!" (Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood
Welcome to the Sugar Quill!
Quills are the Hogwarts choice for writing utensils,
not to mention that feathers are important in lots of ways in HP - just think
what Fawkes' tail feathers have accomplished! But ours is made of sugar, meant
to be sucked in class for the alleviation of boredom and the sweet inspiration
of new thought. Plus, Ron likes them. And hey, that's enough justification for
us, right there.

Due to a number of database-related problems, and a number of life-commitments, The Sugar Quill Forums have been inactive since August 2008. The Sugar Quill Administration continues to host the Sugar Quill and to make all of the previous threads and stories available in "Read Only" mode, meaning that visitors will be able to read past discussions but not actively post new messages. Our Flourish
and Blotts Fan Fiction Archive will not be updated, but we leave the Sugar Quill Archives online so that people can continue to read and enjoy these wonderful stories.

should that mean that it is not real?" -- Albus Dumbledore, Harry

Read as much as you can. Keep writing and then throwing it
away until one day you do something that you don't think belongs in the bin.
Stick to writing what you know about. Don't give up. -- J.K. Rowling, March
4, 2004, regarding becoming a writer.
