4:05PM - Update on MA thesis on HP fan fiction

Hi!

With this message, I would like to thank all of you who answered my questionnaire at http://fanfiction.frontexperts.com (see the original message below) and have given me helpful feedback. Many of you who sent me emails with comments let me know that my questionnaire did not fully embrace your experience with fan fiction. Because a survey is a highly standardized research instrument, there was no way of avoiding this problem but I decided to broaden my research design according to the concerns conveyed to me. Thus, I would like to conduct a group discussion with fan fiction authors where they will have the opportunity to freely talk about their experience without being bound by narrow questions like in the survey.

Therefore, I am looking for Harry Potter fan fiction authors who will attend the LeakyCon 2009 from May 21st-24th in Boston and who would be willing to get together for an hour or two as a group to discuss their experience with me and the other fan fiction authors. As far as I can tell from the LeakyCon schedule, Saturday morning would probably work best to meet for the discussion. Also, it would give us a chance to get to know each other on Thursday or Friday. I will provide a space at the hotel where we will be undisturbed and make sure we have drinks and snacks. A group of 8-12 people would work best but if there are too few people for a group discussion, I would be happy to meet with any of you informally at LeakyCon to talk about your experience as a fan fiction author.

By participating in a group discussion, you would make an immense contribution to the quality and accuracy of my research. I am looking forward to meeting you in person and hearing about your life in Harry Potter fan fiction. If you want to participate please let me know until May 19th by replying to this message or at fanfictions@ gmx.net or petra.baumann@edu.uni-graz.at.

Thank you so much for your repeated help!
Best,
Petra

12:56AM - Harry Potter Fan Fiction - Help with MA thesis!

Hello!
I hope it's OK that I'm posting this message here. I do not have any financial interest whatsoever, this message regards academic research only!

My name is Petra Baumann and I’m doing research for my master’s thesis in sociology on Harry Potter fan fiction at the University of Graz, Austria. As a sociologist, I am especially interested in the social background of fan fiction authors: where they come from, how old they are, etc. Through my research I found that, many studies on fan fiction are done in the fields of literary studies, women studies, or cultural studies but there are very little sociological data available, especially on the Harry Potter fan fiction community.

In order to gather sociological data on Harry Potter fan fiction authors, I developed a short online questionnaire. If you are an author of Harry Potter fan fiction you would immensely help me with my research if you could answer this questionnaire at
http://fanfiction.frontexperts.com

The questions will take about 10 minutes to answer and there will be no spam or advertising when you click the link. The evaluation is done anonymously and the data will be used solely for academic research. If you have any questions regarding the questionnaire or my research please feel free to contact me at fanfictions@gmx.net or visit my LifeJournal.

Thank you!
Best,
Petra

8:31PM - New member with a lovely parody fic to post

Title:Harry Potter and the Brisket Loaf
Author: evil_underlord
Rating: R
Warnings: Parody! Swearing, sex, violence, spoilers up to HBP, and also for Dan Brown's the Da Vinci Code. Xover, but in a good way. In fact, it takes part completely in the Potterverse, but has a few *outside* influences.
Disclaimer: This is book 7 before it's even been written yet and as such is not owned by me at all.
Length: 21,000 words

Notes: Professor Robert Langdon of Harvard University thinks he is an ordinary boy - until he is rescued by two stunningly attractive and devastatingly intelligent women, given a job at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, learns to play Quidditch and does battle in a deadly duel. The reason: PROFESSOR ROBERT LANGDON OF HARVARD UNIVERSITY IS A COMPLETE MARTY STU WIZARD.

Oh yeah. And Harry Potter did some stuff too.

All parts can be found via the link above, or alternatively, in the memories. Hope you enjoy.

This was originally written as a pinch hitting assignment for the wizard_love community.

Title: "The Lies We Tell Ourselves" (1/1)
Author: _starcrossed_
Rating: NC-17 for smutty content
Pairing: Snape/Tonks
Warnings: None
Disclaimer: The Harry Potter novels and all of the characters contained therein belong to the very talented J.K. Rowling. I merely borrow them from time to time for my own stories. I write this stuff for pleasure, not profit, and no copyright infringement is intended.

This way lies the fic...Collapse )

Warnings: Angst, post-war, 'c' word, more angst, some gore, character death

Wow. I just sat down and wrote 2,500 words by accident. All you committed ficcers, do you write like this?

It just all spilled out onto the page! I think the twins made me write it - I've been dying to slash them forever, but GoF definately helped, with their awkward yumminess. I'm hugely hugely proud of this, purely because it just spilled out of my head onto the page, as if I was a fluent writer who could conjure ideas in a second and spill them. Apologies for the character death, I hate myself for it.

Title: Grief
Author: LadyWhisp/Shywild
Pairing: Hermione/Twins
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: I don't own or claim to own the characters, setting, or any other Harry Potter material. All the property of scary multinational types.
Warnings: Character death, incest, sex, angst, both het and slash.
Spoilers: None at all that I can think of. Please don't shout at me if you find any...

Concrit hugely appreciated.

For the first time in their lives, the twins have a burden so heavy they cannot share it with each otherCollapse )

Current mood: artistic

4:30PM - FIC: Learning (HP/SS, ~40 000, NC-17)

Title: Learning

Pairing and rating: Harry/Snape, overall NC-17

Warnings: pre-HBP! This fic was conceived, started and almost finished long before HBP made it into existence. Thus the plot developments taking place in Book 6 are largely ignored.

Disclaimer: No, the boys are not mine. I'm sure that came as a great surprise.

Summary: Dumbledore's dead, and the war is hanging above a chasm of uncertainty. A teacher and a student, as that have always been. But in what discipline?

Author's notes:
First off, much love and gratitude go to my three brilliant betas, ideom, stellahargrove and luci0logy. I know that some of you now hate certain words ('receptor' *g*) because of that fic, but fact is, you did a fabulous job and without you it wouldn't have been readable at all. Thank you!

Second, it goes as a present to kuteki because she was the first to guess the pairing when I asked you to, some time ago.

And third, this is my (if late) birthday treat for all of you. Because chocolates don't travel via cable. *g*

8:37PM - New Discoveries

Title: New Discoveries
Authors: obi_spanker and pookie_1
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Sex with a student, but of legal age; dirty talk
Pairing: Sirius/Ginny
Summary: Loosely based on a RPG we play on, but other then minor character pairings nothing of that main storyline has been kept. Sirius has been ejected from the Veil and is alive and well, Ginny is nearing the end of her seventh year at Hogwarts when she runs into an old friend-smutness ensues.

This is the first of a long series of stories we are working on with this pairing. And was started before the release of HBP, so the events of that book did not happen in our AU verse.

Disclaimer: We own nothing but our pervy minds and some crappy computers. All characters and locations are property of JK Rowling, bless her little heart for the world she gave us to play in.

One big thanks to our wonderful beta, braidbabe, your the greatest girlfriend!

Part Two

Title: Execution At Dawn
Author: recyclemyheart
Rating: R
Spoilers: SS, CoS, PoA, GoF, OoTP, HBP
Shipper: Slight Draco/Harry, more pronounced in future chapters.
Warnings: Slash and Angst
Summary: The Summer after Harry's sixth year, he is in search for the final Horcruxes. The search leads him to Draco Malfoy, who is awaiting his execution in an Azkaban cell. Is it possible that Draco Malfoy isn't as guilty as Harry thought?
Disclaimer: The characters and places all belong to JKR. The lyrics belong to the Libertines.
Authors Note: This might become a chaptered story. I was thinking about Harry leaving, and the thought that Malfoy might not be as guilty as everyone thinks he is. That would bother Harry. So for now i'm saying this is a WIP.

For those of you who have been following along with The Mirror of Erised, I am not stopping with that one. I was just inspired to write this one, so pursued it. I'll still be adding on to The Mirror of Erised.

It's only my second story. So, don't be to harsh.

Chapter 1

Chapter OneCollapse )

(1 sneaks in anywaysneak in anyway | Do you have a permission slip??)

9:18AM

New Chapter Added To The Mirror Of Erised!


Title: The Mirror of Erised (5/?)
Author:: recyclemyheart
Rating: PG-13 or light R
Spoilers: SS, CoS, PoA, GoF, OoTP
Shipper: Draco/Harry
Summary: Harry is growing up. He has seen more than most boys his age. Lost in a spiraling depression, he is thrown out by a sudden realization: he no longer sees his parents in the Mirror of Erised. Now he sees: Draco Malfoy?
Disclaimer: These characters do not belong to me. They belong to JKR. :) The Lyrics also don't belong to me, they belong to Anna Nalick.
Author's Notes: I'm nervous about this chapter. More nervous then the others. A lot of this was taken from notes or diary entries I wrote, and twisted to fit the characters needs. I have always believed that a story is strong if the author puts more of themself in it.

A few notes, from questions I have been asked:

1. The "Dark Haired Man" Will become important to the story.
2. Draco's notebook will become an important aspect of the story. I won't say how.
3. I have been thinking about making this a tad bit Remus/Sirius. Of course in the past, but I might just write another story for that. It was just a thought, not a sure thing.

Another this is, this chapter isn't as long as the others. With school it has been hard to find time to write. Honestly, I didn't want to rush the story. So, I am taking my time with it. Some chapters will be shorter then others.

I hope you all like it.

Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Chapter 3

4:22AM - FIC - Snow - Sirius/Remus - PG

Title: Snow (1/1)
Author: katrinavt
Date of completion: 6th September 2005
Genre: Complete and utter Fluff.
Time: New year, 1996. Order of the Phoenix.
Rating: PG
Word count: 2261
Pairing(s): some Sirius/Remus
Characters: REMUS, Sirius, Harry, Ron, Ginny, Fred, George, Tonks
Warnings/Spoilers: None.
Disclaimer: The characters and the place all belong to J.K. Rowling, and I am making no profit from this at all. Sadly.
Summary: Remus finds fun in the snow, and discovers he doesn't have to be ashamed of his alter-ego.


Have no idea if this works in regards to Hogwarts school terms, but most normal British schools start back about the 9th of January. And I have no idea if 12 Grimmauld Place has a garden. If either thing's wrong... ah, well, it's not meant to be a great long meaningful fic ;) I can't believe I'm writing this in September, but Remus wouldn't let me ignore it. It's so candy-coated I think it's been cooking in Willy Wonka's factory for a week or more.
