Is it okay to submit one of your own quotes? :)
Sorry, no. We don’t take quotes from personal accounts or from people who aren’t already in the public eye. You can read more about our reasons for that here.
How does this thing work?
That depends on what you mean by “this thing.” I’m assuming you mean the submissions box. There are rules on the submissions page.
Hi I just noticed one of your names is Fiona. That's also my name. You have an awesome name. Enjoy an awesome life with an awesome name. (Carmen's pretty too;)
*high-five* You go, other Fiona! And thanks!
I think it's awesome that you use proper citations and don't cite the character or, god forbid, the actor. Screenwiters are too often left out of citations.
Thanks! We always think it’s important to credit the content’s creator. :)

You have a minor mistake on your last post! The Hufflepuff one! It should say "The Dresden Files: Changes" but you replaced the colon with a capital L. c:
Got it! Thanks!
How long does it take for a quote to go from the inbox to the site? Also, how strict are your criteria for a quote going to a certain house?
Oh grey-faced Anon, we point you towards our FAQ:

Can you guys post actual Harry potter quotes? Not trying to be mean i just want to see some :)
"We do not take quotes from (or relating to) the Harry Potter books, because the purpose of this blog is to find the crossover in other works. Quotations by JK Rowling that do not pertain to the Harry Potter books, however, are welcome.”
We do once in a blue moon post Harry Potter quotes for when we hit follower marks. You can find them at these links:
If somebody's already submitted a quote I wanted to submit but put it in a different house than I would have, is it still okay to submit it for the house I think it fits?
Yes! Here are some examples of times we’ve done this in the past:
"You will never be able to escape from your heart." — Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist) for Slytherin and Hufflepuff
"Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings." — Salvador Dalí for Ravenclaw and Slytherin
"When you can’t run anymore, you crawl. and when you can’t do that, you find someone to carry you." — Joss Whedon (Firefly: The Message) for Gryffindor and Hufflepuff
"We are men of action. Lies do not become us." — William Goldman (The Princess Bride) for Gryffindor and Slytherin
So yes! We encourage you to do so. :)
You quoted Naruto, let's get married.
We’re flattered, but polygamy’s illegal where we live. :)
I want to submit a quote from a movie based off a book. I'm not sure if the quote I have is from the book as well or just the movie. Should I just have it from the writers of the movie?
You could try to do a quick Google search and see if it’s attributed to the book or the film. If it’s a well-enough known book, which I assume it is if it’s got a movie, then you should be able to source it. If not, source it to the screenwriters and Fiona and I will take a look and see if we can find which it comes from (or both).
