​Harry Potter Moment of the Week 2017 #12

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a weekly meme that is hosted by the wonderful Lunar Rainbows!

What’s your favorite Harry Potter fanfic?

I…actually have never read a fanfic, Harry Potter or otherwise. If any of you have recommendations to good ones, maybe I’ll check them out? I’m willing to read them, I just never have before.

    1. I really honestly don’t even know what’s out there so I don’t know what to ask for lol I’m sorry I’m horrible at specifics sometimes. Nothing erotica, though I’m sure that exists somewhere. 😂

      1. It does exist but I’m not into reading that so I wouldn’t have been of much help there. 😂😂😂 Okay, time for a little fanfiction education. Are you familiar with the terms canon divergent, alternate universe (au) slash and original character (oc)?

      2. I have heard the term ‘canon’ but tbh I don’t know what it means… 😅 and no to the rest. I haven’t even heard of those terms… I now feel like there’s an entire world I’m missing out on though. 😂

        I suggest you check this out. It’s like a mini fanfic dictionary of sorts. Also, I read the comment below and usually what happens when you google it is that the not-so-great fics light up. Bad grammar, awful spelling and completele lack of a plot. Not saying it happens always but it does. I have a few fics that I’ve been loving recently! PG13 but slash. If you’re fine with that, I’d be happy to share! Alternately, you could go to fanfiction.net and archiveofourown.com and look for HP fanfics there. Be sure to enable the filters though, so that you are presented with stuff that you’d be okay reading.
        Hope this helps! Have a wonderful day!

  1. As someone who once lived very deeply in the rabbit hole of Harry Potter fan fic, let me first say, that yes, while there’s a lot of crap out there, there are some amazing, well-written, stick-with-you-forever stories. Fan fiction has always been very progressively diverse in ways that mainstream lit is only starting to even try to catch up with. And, some big YA writers got their start in the HP fan fiction community: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Lev Grossman.

    I’d recommend starting with the forums at “Fiction Alley” in the “Readers Corner” section. You can look at some of the recommendations there, or just go straight into the forums, let everyone know you’re new, anything you wouldn’t want to read (you can ask to be capped at PG-13 for example), any ideas for what you might want to read and the very friendly community will no doubt have tons of recommendations for you. http://forums.fictionalley.org/park/

    You could also check out this Buzzfeed article, though I admit, even though I spent years in the fandom, I don’t recognize anything on their list. I do, however, recognize a lot in the comments section. https://www.buzzfeed.com/annamenta/shut-up-theyre-so-in-love-i-cant-even?utm_term=.agdMRpqdO#.ppyQxD0eo

    I hope you enjoy!
