It was a sound Harry recognized, though he had heard it only once before in his life… phoenix song… It was the sound of hope to Harry… the most beautiful and welcome thing he had ever heard in his life… he felt as if the song was inside him instead of just around him…

~Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, page 376, UK edition

PhoenixSong began in 2003, and continued for over 16 years as a source of quality Harry Potter fanfiction and devotion to our favourite canon couples. The site was born out of friendships built upon a mutual love of reading, writing, and Harry Potter, and those friendships have continued to grow as exponentially as the site has done. When we began, we never would have imagined that we would eventually have almost 76,000 members!

Toward the end of 2019, our 'tech wizard' and friend, Tim, led us to realize that we must resort to putting the site into 'read only' mode. This won’t change much, overall, except that we will not be having new members or new reviews, but our content will remain here for all of us to continue to enjoy and appreciate.

We have been richly blessed by the people who have made up the heart and soul of PhoenixSong since its inception, and we will be forever grateful and proud of what all of us have built here together. Thank you, always, for creating this little corner of the world of Harry Potter with us.

For the tiny percentage of people who are interested, the code was written in 2003. Any boy, does it show. The Admin side has security that three curious children could bypass, UTF-8 is simply not a thing, Data sanitisation? Maybe, if you squint enough and were feeling generous. It's a bit of a miracle that it still runs at all.

For now, the Admin area has been disabled. This has halted a lot of problems. In the medium term, we're looking at options to secure the long-term future of the site, as an archive of a period where it seemed like the world gathered around a piece of literature and had fun with it.


Current News: Back to normal... we hope!Posted On: Saturday 21st February 2015 by Sherylyn
Well, it looks like Tim has once again performed his magic, and things on-site appear to be working properly again now. If you do encounter errors on-site, though, please do let us know via our Facebook page, and we'll work on getting them fixed as quickly as possible.
Current News: Well, we're back... mostly!Posted On: Friday 20th February 2015 by Sherylyn

Hi, y'all...

Just FYI, we've discovered that we've still got some problems on-going, apparently from the server fiasco of a couple weeks ago. Several pages/functions are still not working, including authors' ability to respond to reviews, being able to use the "your stories" link from Flock, etc... Tim's working on getting things working properly again, but that's dependent upon his available time, etc., of course.

In the meantime, let us know via our Facebook page if you find other things that aren't working on the site. We're hopeful that things will be sorted out before too long!
(You know, so that we can then eventually move to another server company, just to keep things interesting! LOL!!)
