Summary

Since the reign of Grindelwald in the 1940's, pureblood traditions have rapidly digressed. The suppression of muggles and muggleborns lead to an extreme alteration in lifestyle. This can be clearly seen by those who uphold the old ways.

Where students were once indoctrinated into magical culture, they are now highly influenced by muggle philosophy and religion. We no longer teach muggleborn students pureblood etiquette, but instead teach children with magical upbringing muggle studies. Primordial and ritualistic magics have been abolished, labelled as dark, and Judao-Christian holidays have replaced the ancient Sabbaths. In place of Yule or Samhain, we find Christmas and Halloween. Elemental magic has become taboo. Our mannerisms and customs have been classified as archaic.

Lord Voldemort's pro-pureblood movement quickly gained support from the ancient wizarding families. He promised to restore honor to the noble houses. But when his methods failed, what began as a political faction was revealed to be a hate group. Now, their tactics have deteriorated into terrorism.

Many of those who once believed in his cause have attempted to distance themselves from the revolution, only to find that abdiction comes at the greatest of costs. Those who outwardly rebel are executed. Any who dare refuse his service are coerced into doing his bidding, or disposed of all together. The Ministry of Magic is on the brink of collapse.

But from the ashes of the debilitated community, a few vigilantes rise to fight against him. The Order of the Phoenix, lead by Albus Dumbledore, battles for dominance.

Welcome to war. Which side will you find yourself on?

A reader's companion for the Harry Potter series that takes history out to play. I thought this might be useful for any writers who are looking for back history or doing research for an HP story---it's full of useful background information for stories.





Harry Potter and History was written by a group of historians who are also Harry Potter fans (many of them active here on LJ), who decided to research how the wizarding world is rooted in real history. The wizarding world is both magical and historical, after all, and it's fun to explore how things like bezoars, potions, spells, the Wizengamot and the Ministry, and Hogwarts itself are all rooted in Muggle history. The book has a timeline that compares wizarding history with real history, and discusses topics like how the Malfoys stack up against real English aristocrats, and the history of werewolves.

If you like history and Harry Potter, you'll enjoy this.

I'm stuck on what kind of creature Hermione should be. For the story she needs wings and a mate. I really don't want her to be a Veela or Harpy or anything that has been used a thousand and one times. If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful...In the story she will be Dark, the Grand Daughter of Tom Riddle Jr., Dumbledore will be manipulative, and Ron will be an idiot. I want her mate to be a dark Pureblood... Maybe Lucius but I'm open to suggestions. If you have an Original Caracter idea I'd love to hear it. I have written another Harry Potter story before but it was for a friend and I really liked it so I thought I'd write one for myself. If you want to see the other it is here:

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

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
