The RoseScorpius fans forum is situated on fanfiction.net, and is described as ' a haven for all who ship the next-generation pairing RoseScorpius, and an Internet home for its members.' by the creator, watching stiricide, who goes by the name of Alice. There are four moderators for the forum Alice (watching stiricide) , Vicky (vicky199416/incandescent dreams) , Louise (downstage)  and Rae (turnthepageoftime) . There are also two 'mod-sistants' - Maddie (overstreets)  and Cassie (a color will be perched) 
The forum is to celebrate the Harry Potter next generation pairing RoseScorpius, although in the chat corners, the pairing is rarely discussed, members choosing to talk about topics such as The Hunger Games, Glee, and whatever they are currently obsessing over.
The Chat Corners
The Chat Corners are where the majority of the insanity goes on, and members of the forum are able to talk to each other about anything they wish, and are able to get to know each other better. The forum are currently on their 15th Corner, each corner ending at 5,000 posts, as that used to be the limit of posts in each thread. Although the post limit has now risen to 100,000 posts, the forum as a whole decided to carry on finishing corners at 5,000 posts, for sanity's sake, and even for a little bit of nostalgia. Corners are fast moving, and usually take between 16 - 18 days to finish, although the first corner took just under four months. Recently, corners have been taking a little under a week, due to the summer holidays and an increase in membership.
The forum has a lot of very tight friendships, although it doesn't take long for newbies to settle in and feel at home. Naturally, we have surveyed every single newbie to make sure that they feel totally at home so that we can arrive at this conclusion.
Ship wars are sometimes found at the forum, whether people are arguing over their Harry Potter ships, or even ships for other fandoms, such as The Hunger Games or Glee - two fandoms that are very popular at R/S Fans. Within the forum, members are also shipped with each other, and there are sometimes even proposals taking place. The four forum couples are Sivvi, - Summer&Livvi- Mamy, -Middy&Amy- "Drizzie" - Drew&Izzie - and :Kooky" - Kim&Booky- all of which consider themselves engaged, and refer to their 'other half' as their fiancé.
On the Chat Corners, language is quite informal, often members of the forum jokingly insulting each other. Capital letters are often forgone for style, or simply because members of the forum are typing quickly, because the Corners are hard to keep up with if you're not fast and on your toes, although exceptions occur at different times of day. Some members do always use proper grammar, and certainly spelling mistakes are discouraged, although if they are made accidentally and infrequently, it is assumed that nobody would mind.
