The tapestry looked immensely old; it was faded and looked as though doxies had gnawed it in places. Nevertheless, the golden thread with which it was embroidered still glinted brightly enough to show them a sprawling family tree dating back (as far as Harry could tell) to the Middle Ages. Large words at the very top of the tapestry read:
The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black “Toujours Pur”
Welcome to _toujours__pur_, a LiveJournal community for the Black family from the Harry Potter book series.
Community Rules and Guidelines
-- All fan fiction, fan art, graphics, icons, essays, discussions and more are welcome, as long as it is Black family associated. This means anything posted to the community must prominently feature at least one member of the Black family. *** This will now also include any member of the family listed on the Black Family Tree as of JKR's January 2006 reveal of the extended tree. ***
-- Please remember, there are many centric comms on LiveJournal for many popular characters, so we ask that postings and recs done in this community are not in mass amounts. We are looking for the Black family in its entirety, and while we do count spouses as party of the Black family for this community, we do not wish the community to be flooded with those characters only. The moderator may impose a temporary hold on non-blood family members (such as spouses) if the community is flooded.
-- Use the following for posting fic/art:
Author/Artist: Title: Characters/Pairing: Rating: Summary: Warnings: Archiving: (For fic purposes: please mark yes if you will be submitting your story to Toujourspur.com for archiving) A/N:
This is a guideline. Feel free to play around with this format as you see fit as long as questionable material is warned for/rated and fics are marked with archiving intentions.
-- To ease the difficulty of adding items to memories, kindly put this in the header if you're posting fic or art:
FIC/ART, TITLE, CHARACTER/PAIRING, RATING (or as much as can fit in the header)
-- Slash, het and gen are all allowed, as well as any pairings, but the story or art must involve a Black family member.
-- Adult material is welcome, but PLEASE make sure it is rated and behind a cut. This community is not responsible for what rating an author or artist gives their work and by clicking any cuts or links on age-rated work, you are agreeing you are of consenting age to see such work.
-- Be sure to beta (or at least spellcheck) your work.
-- All art and any works/writing over 100 words are to go under a lj-cut to spare our friends lists.
Use of tags: Please tag your posts. As tags are constantly updated, please check to see if the tag you wish to use for the other character(s) in your story or art already exist by submitting your post without entering information in the tags field and then clicking “Edit this entry's tags”. Tags can be requested here for characters, authors, artists, etc.
-- Flames and spam will not be tolerated, and will be promptly deleted.
-- Any questions, comments, concerns, complaints, etc can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll definitely respond.
