Where's Peter???
Brief entry. I just uploaded "Voices" (the story about Peter-as-rat hiding in Lupin's office during PoA) at the Pit, and you know how in HP, they let you choose which charcters it involves, to help people search?

Peter's not on the list of options.

Anywhere.

Oh, didn't you know that Peter didn't actually...um... exist back then. I mean, just look, all the fics just find convientent reasons for Wormtail to not show up at any point :)

Nevermind. I read your comment wrong.

Well, I know the grievance is for totally different reasons, but I had the same problem in LotR — Éomer wasn't on the list — so I contacted them through the suggest-a-new-category link and asked them to add him to the character list, saying that I had a story about him that I wanted to start posting. A couple days later it was added.

However, it's ridiculous that such a freaking major character has yet to be placed on the character list. Someone should be thwacked with a blunt object.

Heh, they do that in the SW category too. I noticed that when I tried to upload a P/A fic and saw they didn't have Padme, of all characters! (R2 they had, but not one of the two major heroines.) Whatever criteria, if any, they're using to select the characters they put on the lists baffles me.

Neither Bill nor Charlie Weasley are an option, but Angelina Johnson and Fleur Delacour are. It really makes no sense at all.

Uh, that makes a lot of sense, actually. Angelina and Fleur have had much more page time than Bill and Charlie.

Of course, there may be more fics out there about Bill and Charlie.

Yes, that's what I meant. :) You don't really see a lot of Angelina Johnson fics, but there are quite a few Bill and Charlie ones. Of course, I probably only noticed because I had a Bill fic and was surprised he wasn't there on the character list.

Well, Fred and Angelina used to be a pretty active ship. I don't know if it still is, as I haven't been to ff.n in forever. Most of my fics are F/A, and I remember wishing there was an Angelina option.

Well, you know, because Peter isn't exactly high on the list of characters that can be shipped left and right with Harry and/or Draco...

Well, neither is Moody.

That would explain why Hooch isn't on the list either, then.

I remember requesting it once, but I'm not sure they ever saw it. If we flooded them with say, five requests on one day they might listen.
