Introduing a New Fan Fic Land Comm! [24 Aug 2010|06:31pm]

orlidepp
    First to the moderators, if this isn't allowed, I'm sorry, but I didn't see where it said it wasn't.  Delete it, or ask me and I'll remove it.  I honestly did check, but I could have overlooked something somewhere.  I also fully accept that this is not an excuse and take the blame that is due me if I've failed to read something important.

    Now to the rest of my friendly comm mates!  :-)  Many of you are probably familiar with the concept of land comms where the members compete in various activities to see who can gain the most points or reach a goal line first.  I thought it was a really neat concept when I first came across it but quickly found myself bored with the art competitions.  It's the fan fic I want, and all fan fic that I've geared this new land comm after.
 
    There are five teams -- one for comics, one for movies, one for TV shows, one for cartoons and anime, and one for books --, and each team will be striving to reach 5,000 points first.  Challenges will be both weekly (drabbles/short fics -- from 100 to 1,000 words) and monthly (longer fics -- 1,000 words and longer).  Other things may also be done to earn points as we go along.
 
    The URL is http://community.livejournal.com/fanficland, but there is a simple form that must be filled out before memberships can be approved.  The form is posted in the first message on the board and should be answered in a comment left to that message.  Please do not reply to this post if you are interested but post over at Fan Fic Land if you are as this is the only time I plan on bothering this wonderful comm with my own comm.

    I hope to see at least some of you there!  Thanks to the mods for this chance to share.  Thank you all for taking the time to read this post and for all the talent, work, and effort you already put into making the world of fan fic a bigger, brighter, and better place for us all!

Update on MA thesis on HP fan fiction [09 May 2009|02:08pm]

sociologistff
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

Harry Potter Fan Fiction - Help with MA thesis! [16 Apr 2009|01:14am]

sociologistff
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

Harry Potter Parody. Read it Now! [09 Sep 2006|06:46pm]

valeriefrankel
Henry Potty and the Pet Rock: An Unauthorized Harry Potter Parody
For everyone who loved Harry Potter…and for everyone who didn’t.
 
TITLE: Henry Potty and the Pet Rock: An Unauthorized Harry Potter Parody
AUTHOR:
Valerie Estelle Frankel
FANDOM: Harry Potter
RATING: G
GENRE: Parody, Humor, Elseworld
SUMMARY
 Catastrophe strikes ChickenfeetAcademy, and it’s not just the cafeteria food. Lord Revolting, murderous goldfish-flusher, needs Really Wimpy’s pet rock to conquer the world! While battling him with squirt guns and cheesy how-to guides, Henry Potty aces Hobology, preps for America’s Funniest Fairygodchildren, and tries to avoid laundering Professor Snort’s dreaded hankies, or worse, watching A History of Cabbages in Polish. All the while, the least likely character watches, coveting the pet rock for her own sneaky agenda. What part does Socks the parrot, wisecracking pet of Headmaster Bumbling Bore, play in all this? Will Revolting dare the ultimate villainy and spoil the book? Will this novel waste your entire morning? There’s only one way to know…

Fanfic vs Canon [02 Sep 2006|07:08pm]

[ mood | annoyed ]

I have been keeping up with a story on FF.Net entitled "Teach Me To Live" by Daughter of Thranduil. She apparently got an anonymous review from some one who is strictly into following Tolkien's storylines when it comes to FF, Now I write fan-fic as do most of you in this group and this type of anon review aggravates me.Especially if the person doing the reviews has not read the books in question. At least have the guts to be honest about who you are.Read more...Collapse )

Title C'est La Vie
Author cryice
Fandom Harry Potter
Rating PG 13
Category Humor/Romance

Summary Post Hogwarts. This is a light hearted
story mild on angst if any about the lives and loves of some of our favorite HP charachters after the war.

Disclaimer The characters and settings used in this story belong to J.K Rowling. ‘The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous’ is a product of the wonderful Jilly Cooper, i.e. I don’t own that either.

I'd like some help with plot holes, grammar, spelling and the general flow of the story. Any input will be much appreciated, thanks :)

Draco Malfoy woke up with an audible groan. He tried to move, but something large was covering the bottom half of his body, blearily he opened one silver eye in hopes that his distorted vision could tell him what it was. Said large thing was red? No, he squinted again, said large thing had red hair, short red hair! Shutting his eyes again he hoped that when he looked again it would all be nothing but a figment of his very morbid imagination.

finally a place to find a Beta for my story [22 Aug 2006|10:51am]

arelenriel
[ mood | accomplished ]

I write LOTR fanfics primarily. I have needed a Beta for a while and am glad I found this community. So heres a little about the story
Title: Estel(Sindarin for Hope)
Summary;In Fourth Age 119 Aragorn is given the choice of the Peredhil.To remain mortal and pass to the Halls of Mandos, or to choose his elven heritage(Elrond's nephew 42x removed) and return to Valinor with Arwen so that she may be reunited with her family.
I have reached chapter 9 on this story and it is posted under the pen name arelenriel over at FF.Net, but readership has fallen off a little lately. I am more known for Tales of Symphonia stories over there. So if any are interested in Chapter 10 drop me a line.
