    Figured that part, disclosing what *I* do to try to minimize… spills.  However, you don’t realize how much the search engines are listening until you ask how to unclog a bathtub trap.  Maybe try searching for dating sites?

    Why’d I think of “Epipen” when I read “Epilog”?  Dunno.  Anyways, I agree, should be “Epilogue” IMO.

    I really make my plots complicated.  In my case, it’s not the intention of the canary yellow group to be evil, the canary yellow simply being a close proximity to the Hufflepuff colors around the martyr that’s been chosen, and this group is being tricked/fooled into being evil toward Harry.  Bottle green is by the next group is to (incorrectly) affiliate themselves with Harry, reinforcing the fears at the core of the slander/smear campaign being waged against him.
    In prior drafts, I had both groups in black (ie “dark”).  However, this pass through (of what I hope to be the FINAL draft), the canary yellow simply evolved, and I realized it was more effective than the black had been.  I applied the same logic to the next group, and so they’re going to be in robes of bottle green, to match Harry’s eyes.

    For villains, I like to use colors that seem unnatural or out of place. I once wrote a Steven Universe fanfic about a nefarious collective intelligence called the Splinter, which could infect people and control their minds. Infected persons had swirling orange specks in their eyes. I chose orange because it's not a color you ever see in human eyes, or a color that was normally associated with any of the main characters.

    It’s not just the forums; I’ve been getting a lot of spam “reviews” in the archives, too.
