In the aftermath of the Second Wizarding War, the Malfoy family didn't have many options in the career world. With the money that was left, Lucius ventured into the stock market world and Draco, after much planning (and a little begging), opened Ame Noir, the wizarding world's first club in the heart of London.

After three successful years and two more locations in France and Germany, Draco was ready to conquer America. Boston was the place to start. The city had a thriving magical community and lots of old world charm. Ame Noir Boston was opened in 2004 and has been the favourite of young witches and wizards for five years running.

Ame Noir is an AU Harry Potter-based game set in present day Boston. All original characters with a player driven plot. Be a member of the staff or one of it's regular patrons, be anything you'd like. Ame is many unique lives connected by one bar. Opening soon, we'll save you a seat.

Update on MA thesis on HP fan fiction

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!

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

Fiery Inception HP RPG, Canon to HBP, AU after, post-war

Fiery Inception
Fiery Inception
Banner by Woody, x24hoursx

Nearly two years of role-playing excellence!
Canon-compliant through the events of Halfblood Prince, AU to Deathly Hallows.
If you are looking for quality writing as well as fun play, Fiery Inception is the game for you!


Are you tired of one-liners and no character development? Tired of games that die after a few months as Muns get bored and move on to the next round of inspiration?

Our game setting began three years after the end of HBP. We are AU to the events of Deathly Hollows. We have a LOT of fun exploring the Wide Wizarding World beyond Hogwarts (no Mun-played students or classes), dabbling in politics, character-developed businesses and careers, Ministry idiocy, scary situations with Greyback and other still-lingering Death Eaters and much more.

We are an epic-style game, nearly two years old and going strong! If you are a long-term player with a dedication to character development and in-depth character exploration, this is the game for you!

Game * Plot * Rules * Available Characters * Application * Lurker Community
Admin Contact Information: fiery_inception@yahoo.com


Especially seeking Bill Weasley! Also Neville Longbottom, and Ministry personnel from various political factions! Lots of room for broad character growth and world-wide exploration.Collapse )

With so much Ministry, Political, Death Eater and Werewolf plots in which to play, there is always room for more characters to join the fun!

Hyperlinks take you to any relevant, existing history of the characters and/or general game information regarding character-types:

Neville Longbottom, Bill Weasley, and other Death Eaters, Order of the Phoenix Members, and general adult populace and Ministry workers.


We have a player-driven request for more politically neutral characters! The world is in flux and with the current race for Minister, the swing vote is essential! If you've ever thought there was no place for your Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw to shine, then look here! With so much going on, they are sure to get plot and activity!

Luna Lovegood would be welcome and would walk into a society more willing to believe and subscribe to the Quibbler than the Prophet due to recent events!

We also have a request that Daphne would love to have her little sister about! Astoria would walk into a mesh of plots regarding love, politics and family!

Kinsgley Shacklebolt, Sturgis Podmore, Alastor Moody, Sybill Trelawney, Malcom Baddock, Vincent Crabbe, Blaize Zabini, Theodore Nott, Padma Patil, Parvati Patil, Angelina Johnson, Stewart Ackerly, Eddie Carmichael, Michael Corner, Ernie MacMillian, Justin Finch-Fletchley, Emma Dobbs, Eloise Midgen, and many others are still open.

Original Adult Characters! - Non-Sue/Stu Original adult characters (at least 5 years older than the Trio) are welcome! Join one of the few SERIOUS CANON-honouring games which actively recruits for and allows OC's!
