Update on MA thesis on HP fan fiction [09 May 2009|01:47pm]


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!

Harry Potter Fan Fiction - Help with MA thesis! [16 Apr 2009|12:21am]

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

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 (sociologistff.livejournal.com/).

Thank you!

New Lucius Fanart [13 Apr 2006|12:12am]

Check out some Lucius fanart if you're bored. Nothing too naughty as of yet.. I'm working on it- kind of bogged down by commissions at the moment. Will also be some Lockhart and Lockhart x Lucius stuff here soon. Enjoy : )

Guess who got Lucius/Gilderoy for fanfic100. Guess who also has too much time on her hands while at the college.

Title: Rekindle All The Dreams It Took You A Lifetime To Destroy
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Lucius/Gilderoy
Prompt: 001. Beginnings
Word Count: 924
Rating: PG-13
Author's Notes: First chapter of what looks to be a long Lucius/Gilderoy fic, with some elements of LYWB, but mostly on its own. Hopefully I'll be able to finish this time. Looks to be pretty dark in here after a while...not intentionally, that's just the way this thing wants to go. For now, I'll try to chill it with the dark. The beginning is heavy, though. I'll shut up now before my notes get longer than the fic.

Title from Nick Cave.

Introduction and self-pimping, sorta. [17 Feb 2005|08:47pm]

[ mood | shy ]

My name is Dal, also known as slaygirl or Dalet Slash on fanfiction.net...I'm co-mod of this community. *waves*

My ongoing project for over a year and a half was a fic called "Like You Wouldn't Believe," which is a long, as-of-yet incomplete Lucius/Gilderoy fic. It's rated PG-13 for non-graphic nudity and some language and situations; it's also roughly 33k, but 28 chapters, so it's not a difficult read due to the chapters being painfully short. It was reasonably popular in its day, and also includes mild Gilderoy/Walden.

The fic hasn't been updated in a long time, but I've recently reopened it and started work on chapter 29. There's so much story left to tell, and I haven't gotten around to doing it yet. Heh... *sweatdrop*

I'll be sure to keep you posted on the adding of chapters, if you're interested. If you're not...well, feel free to slap me and tell me to shove off. ^_^

And...here's the fic.

Like You Wouldn't Believe

A silent comicCollapse )

I know it sucks, but we needed something up here. I do like how Lucius and Gilderoy look. I wish I drew it. :/

I hope you enjoy.
