Welcome to Not The Trio, a community devised for those of us in the fandom that love the minor characters. Whether we find a lack of artwork, icons, fanfiction, or what have you devoted to these lovely, yet hardly known characters.
This Community will feature almost anything we can think of. However, everything is shipless! There are communities devoted to minor ships, and to them, I thank thee. But for the time being, this is a place to explore the characters that are so briefly seen in the Wizarding World. This does not stick strictly to Hogwarts, but also the surrounding area of Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley, St. Mungo's, the Ministry of Magic, The Order of the Phoenix, Death Eaters, and so on and so forth.
I must ask however, that we not include the major characters such as: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Draco, and so forth.
This is the post that will beg you not to disclose any information about the plot of HBP until everyone has had a chance to read and enjoy for themselves. Other communities are doing this too, so please make sure to remember that when posting new fic, or commenting about the new book.
So, here's what we've come up with:
1) No spoilers on top level posts for the period of one month unless they are behind an lj-cut - any posts not matching these guidlines will be removed and the poster have their posting access suspended until the spoiler period is over.
2) No spoilers in comments unless the original post contains a spoiler cut - comments will be removed when found.
3) All fic containing canon from HBP must state it has spoilers in the heading and be behind an lj-cut even if it's only a drabble.
