A place to discuss all things Harry Potter and HP fanfic
I've been looking for a Harry Potter partner to bounce ideas off of for a while now. More specifically, I'm looking for someone who knows Harry Potter, inside and out, who can help me fact-check a lot of my information. Even more focused, I'm trying to write some work on characters in the Quidditch sect of the books. I'm making an outline for a pretty long and arduous story (that I will begin once I graduate college which is sooooon) and I just need someone to help me find info or fact-check me.
I have three possibly four scenarios I can do with my character and George's romantic plot of sorts.
1. They share one innocent a few days after the Yule Ball possibly to be interuptted by a male OC who broke my main character's heart.
2. The kiss doesn't get interuptted but the kiss feels weird for both of them
3. George confuses his strong feelings for my character as feelings of love but doesn't feel anything when they kiss.
4. They kiss and no feeling arise but feel the need to put on the act for their families since their families think they would end up together.
Which one do you like best? I can't go back up so the first one is missing the word kiss."
I have another plotline that I thought of (more like copying it from one of my older real people fanfiction stories). My character and more than likely Lee are friends and maybe they go to different schools or she could be a muggle. They have feelings for each other but never confess their feelings. Something happens and they lose touch . They reconnect and the feelings are still strong but the catch is one of them is taken (Lee) but they can't fight their feelings and begin an affair without either one of the girls knowing. They eventually find out and both break up with him.
writer0890 Now that I think about it my character could be a muggle born and has to go into hiding during the war. They meet again when he's dating Katie (which is ironic because the real person I wrote this about had a girlfriend named Katie when I wrote the trilogy back in 2005/2006/2007).

I was thinking that in my newest Remus story the one where we were initially friends until fourth year and my character starts dating someone else.
Here's the idea:
I was thinking that one of her former dorm mates ends up throwing a get together/ten year reunion of sorts in 1988 for all houses. My character might have a muggle boyfriend at the time (who obviously doesn't know she's a witch since she can't tell him). She goes to the party and sees Remus briefly but he leaves early.
A few days later she goes over possibly the Weasley's, Jordans or the Diggorys. Despite them being older then her she's quite close with them and their respective children.
The problem with the Weasleys is that they would the predictable ones to choose. She would get along pretty well with the twins since they remind her of James and Sirius.
The Jordans, I usually make Mr. Jordan best friends with Andromeda Tonks née Black making Lee and Tonks God-siblings so either she won't even fancy Remus or not exist.
The Diggorys could be interesting watching Cedric grow up from a little boy and becoming friends with him. Then having him die in his sixth year. (I've written his death from his best friend's POV in Prankster) but never from an adult watching him growing up.
Harry Potter fans are freaking out over a theory about Dumbledore that makes a lot of sense...
Who is death? Death is Dumbledore, according to this new theory. Here's the evidence.
During the first book, Dumbledore gives Harry Potter an invisibility cloak, just like Death in the fable.
In the first book of the series, "Harry Potter & The Sorcerer's Stone," headmaster Albus Dumbledore gifts Harry an invisibility cloak, which belonged to Harry's deceased father, James. The gift included a note: "Your father left this in my possession when he died. It is time it was returned to you. Use it well."
Dumbledore also gives Harry the Resurrection Stone.
During the first book, Harry Potter catches a Golden Snitch by swallowing it during his first Quidditch match. Later, Potter discovers Dumbledore hid the resurrection stone within that snitch. After Dumbledore's death, his will leaves the resurrection stone-containing snitch to Harry.
"To Harry James Potter, I leave the Snitch he caught in his first Quidditch match at Hogwarts, as a reminder of the rewards of perseverance and skill," his will reads.
For a while, Harry is unable to open the snitch. A sentence merely appears on the golden sphere, "I open at the close."
But at the end of the final book when Potter is walking to his death match with Lord Voldemort, he's finally able to open the snitch by whispering "I am about to die." Inside, he finds the resurrection stone, the stone that was part of the Tale of Three Brothers. Harry is then able to see all of his deceased family members before what he believes is to be his final fight with Lord Voldemort.
And what about the third brother's Elder Wand? Dumbledore had that in his possession too.
Dumbledore acquired the Elder Wand's powers during a famous duel before the books take place. During his demise, the power of the wand shifts from himself to Draco Malfoy accidentally, and then ultimately to Harry Potter, who defeats Malfoy in a duel.
So with all that knowledge, here's the theory that's floating around Tumblr. The theorist also notes that Dumbledore first met Harry Potter at King's Cross and that he was ultimately behind/involved in the deaths of Severus Snape and Lord Voldemort.
WHY THE HARRY POTTER FANDOM WILL NEVER DIE
In many official ways, Harry Potter is complete, finished, done. The final book in the series, Deathly Hollows, was released eight years ago, the final movie, four. J.K. Rowling's adult novel, far removed from the wizarding world she created, has been made into a miniseries, and the child stars of the film franchise have moved on to so many post-Potter projects, they survive press interviews without fielding a single question about the fantasy saga.
And yet, a video tribute to The Boy Who Lived created in May went viral last month. ABC Family seems to hype and air Harry Potter weekends at least once a month. Childhood nostalgia is at least part of what makes "Hedwig's Theme" a siren song for millennials. And while the latest companion installments to the film franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, will certainly invigorate fans, the promise of new chapters isn't what's keeping the fandom alive. The vigor of the Harry Potter fan base is due to the fact that an online community grew as the series progressed, accruing more and more fans over time. As people continued to discover the stories for themselves, they were able to easily find and join likeminded fans in online forums, many of which center around specific fan-generated projects.
Harry Potter fan projects can be large and sprawling, mixing purely fan-made creations with elements of the franchise. In July 2009, a young theater group called StarKid posted a recording of a show titled A Very Potter Musical to YouTube. In an opening-frame disclaimer, the group assures fans, "This Fan Musical is produced and performed solely for the personal, non-commercial enjoyment of ourselves and other Harry Potter fans. It is in no way sponsored, approved, endorsed, or affiliated with J.K. Rowling of Warner Brothers or Warner Brothers or any of its affiliates."
But then the musical began garnering some mainstream attention. Six months after it was uploaded to YouTube, Entertainment Weekly gave it an honorable mention in its list of the "10 Best Viral Videos of 2009." The third installment, performed in front of a live audience at the annual Potter fan convention LeakyCon, featured Evanna Lynch, who plays Luna Lovegood in the Potter films, reprising her role for the fan musical. And in 2013, The Fault in Our Stars author John Green referenced a joke from the musical during an interview on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. A fan-made creation had achieved its own fandom (including its own collection of Etsy items) and managed to enlist a star from its source material to collaborate. A big part of the fandom's power is its ability to create cultural touchstones that can extend the fandom's reach, not just sustain it.
Lynch isn't the only Potter actor to have a hand in the fandom. Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy, directed a documentary examining the Harry Potter fandom titled Tom Felton Meets the Superfans. When Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, was asked after the final film wrapped if he'd ever don the trademark glasses again, he suggested he might play Harry in a live action production of Potter Puppet Pal's "The Mysterious Ticking Noise," a fan-made viral video with over 160 million views. It's not that unusual for actors to dip into fan culture, with Marvel stars musing at and praising fan art, but it's often from an outside perspective, without a mind toward collaboration.
Perhaps the greatest strength of the Harry Potter fandom is fans' ownership over the story now that Rowling has put down her pen. Last month, The Huffington Post profiled fan artists who create "racebending" drawings of their favorite Harry Potter characters. The artists imagine a Hermione different from Emma Watson's portrayal or even Mary GrandPré's illustrations, one who can be transferred into new fan art and new fan fiction — and one who certainly doesn't have to be white.
Even if Fantastic Beasts was scrapped tomorrow, or if the distant remake of fans' dreams (starring Watson as McGonagall and Radcliffe as Dumbledore, of course) never happens, the fandom will nevertheless continue to expand — and most importantly, to create.
My character's best friend's parents die in a car crash on the way to Kings Cross to pick up her and her sisters. I was thinking that my character's best friend has to fight for custody of her two younger sisters (13, 11) with their muggle grandmother (dad's mom) She's almost 18 but I know in England the age of adulthood is 17.
