HP Fan Fiction Research Aids

Here are just a few links that you should find helpful.



Dr. Merlin's Guide to Fanfiction ~ A great, rather lengthy essay about writing fanfiction that covers quite a bit of ground and offers good advice.

UNIVERSAL MARY SUE LITMUS TEST - This handy little link will give you and your character a little personality check, a rather in-depth one and tell you whether or not your character is too much, too little or all right.  After a while, you can see the Sue-ness coming the moment you start writing. lol.  Very handy

Hermione Granger - Harry Potter Wiki ~ A very good character breakdown of Hermione Granger.

Where is Spinner's End? ~ An excellent and intriguing essay that speculates on where Snape grew up, the location and even how his mannerisms could have been developed because of that locale.  Very good reading for those fascinated with the character. Located in the HPL.

Halrloprillalar's Fan Fiction Drabble-Matic ~ Oh man, this is so much FUN.  This is sort of a mad-lib program for creating drabbles about HG/SS.  You put in nouns, adjectives, etc, then generate stories.  They can be hilarious!  Hairloprllalar is brilliant!
