JK Rowling learns of
By: I Live in a Daydream
Disclaimer: I own only my crazy little plot but Rowling owns herself and the Harry Potter Universe, Xing Li owns FFN and the story quotes belong to their respective authors. Oh, and the Wiki enteries belong to everyone that contributed.
I was washing the dishes, that evil chore, when this popped into my head. I apologize to Ms. Rowling for making her sound like an idiot but this was just to fun to write to pass up.
By the way… the way she gets to FFN is actually how you can do it, it's kinda funny, actually.
'Time to see just how popular my sweet baby Harry is today!' the crazy author of the Harry Potter books thought.
She grabbed her favorite laptop and sat at her kitchen table.
'Let's see. I need to click on Safari, then the search engine, and then let's type Harry… Potter… and ENTER!' she thought while following her mental directions.
Her wireless connection whizzed and then she was able to look at just how popular her baby was.
'161.000.000, YES! Harry darling you are so popular. Now I have lots of time before I need to make that cake for Jessica's party tomorrow so I should see more of the sites that feature my baby.'
*Several Hours Later*
After finally finishing her examination of the first seventeen sites that pop up when you use the browser Safari and the search engine Google to search Harry Potter, our most favorite/hated author came across the eighteenth.
"What is this Harry Potter Fanfiction Archive – ?" she wondered out loud. She clicked on the blue link.
'Confessions of Addison Jae Tonks? What in the world is that.' Bewildered she clicked upon the link.

A/N: Here's my latest story! I hope you like it! Please read, review, and enjoy! I'd love it! Criticism is welcome! Cheers!
August 31st, 2012
My name is Addison Jae Tonks (though anyone who calls me that is asking to be hexed. I go by Addi) and I'm a Muggleborn Metamorphmagus. Before we get into my present day life let's just start with an introduction.
'I don't understand…. Wikipedia time!' The author opened up a new tab and it showed her the top sites.
'… … ah here it is! !' Opening the site, she typed in fanfiction . net
(often abbreviated as or FFN) is an automated fan fiction archive site. It was founded on October 15, 1998 by Los Angeles computer programmer Xing Li, who also runs the site. The first fics to be posted were a few stories about Buffy the Vampire Slayer. As of 2009, is the largest and most popular fan fiction website in the world. It has nearly 1.3 million users and hosts stories in over 30 languages.
The site is split into nine main categories: Anime/Manga, Books, Cartoons, Miscellaneous, Games, Comics, Movies, Plays/Musicals, and TV Shows. As of March 27, 2009, a new feature was added to the site; the Crossover categories. Users who complete the free registration process can submit their fan fiction, maintain auser profile,reviewother stories, contact each other via email or private messages, and maintain a list of favorite stories and authors. There are also centralized communities and forums.
'What? Oh well, I'll just click on fan fiction then. Maybe it'll help.' She then clicked on the hyperlink that said fan fiction and waited for it to load.
Fan fiction(alternately referred to as fanfiction, fanfic, FF, or fic) is a broadly-defined term used to describe stories about characters or settings written by fans of the original work, rather than by the original creator. Works of fan fiction are rarely commissioned or authorized by the original work's owner, creator, or publisher; also, they are almost never professionally published. Fan fiction, therefore, is defined by being both related to its subject's canonical fictional universe and simultaneously existing outside the canon of that universe. Most fan fiction writers assume that their work is read primarily by other fans, and therefore tend to presume that their readers have knowledge of the canon universe (created by a professional writer) in which their works are based.
'People are writing stories about Harry? I've got to read them. That other… fan fiction… wasn't about him, I'll look for one that is.' She continued scrolling down, using Wikipedia to tell her everything she didn't get. Finally she found a good story and settled down to read.

Harry Potter - Another Life
Chapter 1 – Dear Diary
Pairings:Harry/Hermione, OC/Ginny, Lilly/Snape, James/Sirius
Rated:T for Slash, Swearing, Possible Nudity/Sex later on
Disclaimer:I do not own Harry Potter nor make any money from this
Warnings:Ravenclaw Harry and Hermione, Harrys brother BWL, James and Lilly alive, Divorced James Lilly, Lilly/Snape, James/Sirius(Slash)
A/N: The First Chapter is the only on that is in Diary format this is to go over what has happened before the story, so I can jump straight in for Chapter 2.
My name is Harry James Potter, I am 14 years old and about to go into my fourth year of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, I was sorted into Ravenclaw, where I met my best friend Hermione Granger, who is the smartest witch in our year, probably the whole school, I would do anything for her and I think I love her.
'This is interesting, I want more!' the author read that story then began to read more and more.
After several hours had passed….
"THIS STUFF IS AWESOME!" she exclaimed before reading even more and forgetting all about the cake she was supposed to make.
Two years later on world television…
"I am pleased to inform those who disagree so strongly with me placing Harry with Ginny and Hermione with Ron that tonight at midnight Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: HHr version will go on shelves. It will be completely compatable with the other six books and I hope you will enjoy it. Oh and one last thing… FANFICTION RULES THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" everyone stared as the crazy author pulled out a laptop and began to read.
And that is how JK Rowling learned of Fanfiction and changed her mistake of placing Harry with Ginny and Hermione with Ron.
