Hi everyone!

My name is Sarah, am 33, but suffering from a severe Peter Pan syndrome so want to stay young forever
I am a very, very proud Hufflepuff. My house is covered in Hufflepuff items and I own more yellow clothes than I ever thought I'd own hahahaha

I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands but also lived in London for a while when I was studying (I went to dramaschool).

Used to write a LOT of fanfics, never about HP though, did always like to read them. Dream is to one day actually write a book.

I have a bookstagram account that I share with my sister and one we are quite proud of (@bookmermaids).

I've seen The Cursed Child in London twice and last Christmas I went to New York to see it there. I've been to the HP studios in London 5x now... dream is to go to Orlando and see HP world (and go to Disneyworld. As I am a MASSIVE Disney nerd and go to Disneyland Paris every year).

I have 2 cats, they are brothers, they are 8 months old, I got them when they were very tiny and sick (they were found outside in a box). Their names are Romeo & Mercutio and I love them more than anything.

Besides Disney, HP and books in general I'm a massive music and theater/musical lover.

Oh and my dayjob is working for a charity ❤
No clue what else to say but do ask any questions you have ❤

Hello. My real name is Dawn and I live in the Cleveland, Ohio area, USA, where I am a librarian at a public library.

I first came to this site over ten years ago. I started writing HP fan fiction when a bunch of young teenagers who used to hang out at my library challenged me to write stuff they could read that would continue the Harry Potter story. So I did.

Then, things happened. One of my favorite "library kids" died of sickle cell. Just weeks later, another four were killed in a horrible car accident. I grieve them to this day, so many years later. The world was stripped of those beautiful young lives and the great futures they had before them. But a couple months ago, one young man, now nearing 30, came in and asked me to finish the story I was working on when I stopped.

So, that's what I'm doing. However, I have discovered that I now do not like the current story, The Truth Will Out, as I had begun it all those years ago, so I am completely re-working it, going back to early chapters to edit in plot developments for the story as it is now going to go off in a completely new direction.

Dedicated to Bianca, LaTieka, Evanna, Ben, & Dez.

So glad to have you here Sarah. Your bookstagram is just as lovely as your heart. Can't wait to bond over Harry Potter with you!

Hello there! I'm a writer from California. I write about a boy named Liam Wren, a Hufflepuff who is post-Harry Potter but pre-Next Generation. I haven't posted on this site since before the transition of management, but I watch my reads here and I'm planning to come back.
Welcome back!

My heart goes out to you, I'm so glad you found the inspiration to continue.

Hello!

I'm Blue Kat! I've been reading/writing fanfic for over half of my life, which is a crazy thing to think about. I started out mostly in the LOTR fandom, but started shifting to Harry Potter in college and now that's pretty much exclusively what I read/write as far as fanfiction goes. I'm a sucker for fics with Fred or George Weasley as the romantic lead and I really enjoy well-written OCs. I have two fics in progress here.

In real life, I'm a librarian and I enjoy many things that you might associate with a librarian--reading, writing, knitting, cats, cardigans, answering questions, learning new things.

I somehow managed to be completely unaware of HPFF until right around when the relaunch was announced, but I think I was researching reader's advisory for fanfiction, which led me to Fanfic Recommendations, which led me to here.

Hello!
I'm Nina 1299 :)

I've been an aspiring author for about 12 years. I've written various kinds of novels, short stories, and probably about 30 fanfics. Half which I've deleted, and the rest can be found in various places such as Ao3 and FF.Net.

I have loved the Harry Potter series since about 2003, when I picked up the first books in the library one day and eventually bought the entire set of books and movies.

I'm also a big fan of nearly every Disney film, Star Wars, and Marvel movies. Movie nights are a big thing with my family! I'm a mom of three children.

Hi there! So glad to have you here with us. We're definitely building a site for writers, readers, and lovers of fanfiction of all genres, but Harry Potter is the core so it's awesome that you're a fan of HP fanfic, especially with Fred or George as the lead. We'll need to have more focus on those threads for sure!

I delete half of what I write too, I'm the worst about it haha. We'd love to read what you've written so far, feel free to share what work you'd like to with us. A thread is coming soon for writers to share their fanfic stories.

I'm a huge Marvel fan, I'm a mother of one and MCU films are our favorite for sure. So glad to have you here!

Hello! I'm Darsy, and I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I just turned 40 this past Friday, and I've been writing fanfiction since 2003, and Harry Potter fanfiction since 2005. I found this site in 2007, and I'm lucky in that my stuff is still here somehow, with all the reviews intact! When I'm not writing I crochet and knit on commission.

I mostly write about Hermione, Remus, and Sirius, but I have a variety of oneshots with different pairings as well. I am currently writing almost exclusively on an OC/Sirius OC/Remus story that I'm very proud of, it's going to be very long. I also have a soulmate Remus/Hermione work in progress, and another time travel Remus/Hermione I haven't started to post yet. I write very fast, and average about 20,000 words a week, but despite the speed I promise you it's good stuff.

My Harry Potter claim to fame is that I went on hiatus in 2009 to have three little girls and came back in 2017, posting a new chapter to a popular story after 8 years. Someone tweeted about it and it went viral! I am still working on that story, slowly but surely! That one is on here from when I first posted, it's a Hermione/Sirius time travel story.

Hi there! My name is Jheri and I live in Denver, CO. I'm originally from Michigan, though. I'm currently in the tech industry. I have been a professional writer for five years (I write for big tech, currently, but I've ghostwritten novels, articles, and web copy/content), but I started writing goofy short stories when I learned to put together sentences around age six or seven. I haven't written fanfiction since I was eleven, but I've recently picked it back up again at the ripe age of twenty-five.

I have a sweet Maine Coon kitty named Athene and two chinchillas named Pandora and Loki. Sometimes you may see me re-edit a chapter ten times because Athene likes to walk across my keyboard. ;)

Welcome! We're happy to have you here with us, picking up writing fanfiction again is awesome, can't wait to read some of what you've got! I have a little boy who likes to 'help me work' which means sometimes I have to re-edit what I write or take it very slowly as I show him how to type haha.

hello lovely friends!

I’m maraudeer and I’m a Ravenclaw! I live in Boise, Idaho and I love reading, piano, and rock climbing. I use far too many italics and ellipses when I write because I love to be dramatic.

I came to this site because I had just finished Harry Potter for the I don’t know how many times, and it broke my heart every time I stopped living, being a part of that universe. I’ve grown to love how fanfiction creates new stories, new characters in a world that feels like home. Writing fanfiction allows for me to just...express everything that piece of literature has meant to me and never let go of the familiar feeling, while adding my own elements and characters as a writer. I'm currently writing a Jily story and its been really fun to take my own approach to their dynamic.

I can't wait to meet so many great people in this fandom and read more great fanfiction ! xoxo

Hi all, most people online refer to me as 'Legion' but I prefer Lia. I found this site from a link on reddit.

I've been sorted into Ravenclaw by Pottermore but most of my favourite characters to read about are in Slytherin, though my absolute favourite character is probably Hermione. (But I am a Ravenclaw, truly.) I'm 28 and I live in Canada. According to Pottermore my Patronus is a ginger cat, which seems oddly accurate, as cats are my favourite animals and I'd own about 50 if I wasn't allergic. (Okay, I'd more likely own 2, but just the idea of drowning in a puddle of cats is appealing.)

I've been reading Harry Potter fanfic for over 10 years, and I started writing my own this year. I hope to find other people to talk to about writing fanfic--the fic I'm working on at the moment is my most ambitious writing project to date, and it's been a rollercoaster of emotions.

Outside of writing and cats I like kpop, and eating novel and exciting foods. On my bucket list is to eat strawberry kakigoori and an authentic chip butty in their home countries.
