Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.
I am a Political Science student at The George Washington University and a HUGE Harry Potter and Harry Potter fan fiction fan. I actually wouldn't read the books for a long time because I didn't think I would like them. Once my brother convinced me to give the first one a try, however, I read straight through the first six over the course of a week and then couldn't wait for the seventh to come out. Since I have read them all several times and have also delved deeply into the fan fiction world to feed my habit since all of the books are completed. I am not a big fan of the movies, thought I have seen them all multiple times - I just can't get past the departures from the books.
Typically I like missing 20 fan fics though occasionally I like to read alternate possibility stories, especially those written before all of the books were published because I like to see how others thought it might turn out. Though I like the occasional uber-powered Harry as a guilty pleasure I am a normally a canon purist. The way I see it it is J.K. Rowling's sandbox, she has just been nice enough to let us play in it for a while so lets not ruin her toys. This is especially true with the main pairings mentioned in the book. While I don't have a problem with Neville dating Luna or any of the other pairings put together for charectors not specifically mentioned in the books Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Remus/Tonks, Bill/Fleur, and others mentioned in the books simply should be left alone. This goes especially for Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione in my mind because those ships just seem to fit. That said the only ones I absolutely can't stand are Harry/Hermione and Draco with Ginny or Hermione. H/Hr just makes me gag (they are like brother and sister for gods sake) and given that Ginny and Hermione both think that Draco is an arrogant evil git and he things that Ginny is a blood traitor and Hermione is a mudblood I don't see them ever falling for each other.
I am in the process of trying to right my first fan fic and would appreciate any feedback anyone can give me. It is an idea I have been kicking around for some time and I finally decided to give it a go. Not normally a fan of dark fan fics but like I said can't get this one out of my head and seems like a good story to tell...let me know what you think (good, bad, or indifferent). Thanks!
