Update on MA thesis on HP fan fiction [09 May 2009|04:05pm]

sociologistff
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! [16 Apr 2009|01:15am]

sociologistff
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
Banner by Woody, x24hoursx

Over one year of role-playing excellence! fiery_inception is different from all the rest! If you are looking for quality writing as well as fun play, this is the game for you!


Are you tired of games that degenerate into fluff, smut, crack and soap-opera-style silliness? Tired of one-liners and no character development? Tired of 'Gaywarts'? Tired of games that die after a few months as Muns get 'bored' and move on to the next round of 'inspiration'?

Our game began three years after the end of the events of HBP. 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 still-lingering Death Eaters and much more.

It is not remotely an exaggeration to say we have some of the best quality, most dedicated writers in the role-play fandom. We are an epic-style game, over one year 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!

It's Harry Potter's sixth year at Hogwarts and the Wizarding World is tense due to increased Death Eater activity. Remus Lupin has been reinstated as the Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor and is trying to help Harry get over the death of his godfather, Sirius Black. Severus Snape is spying on the Death Eaters for the Order, though the DE's think he is spying on the Order for them. The Death Eaters are devising a plan to kidnap Harry Potter later in the year.

Come one, come all! This is a new Harry Potter Roleplaying community, for all you HP enthusiasts out there.

The time is 1 year before Harrys birth, 2 years before Voldemorts downfall. The wizzarding world is in chaos, half of the wizards revealing themselves as Death Eaters, the other half too scared to do anything. There is hope however. There are a small band of wizards and witches who are willing to try and stop Voldemort, headed by Albus Dumbledore. Hogwarts is still running, though classes are regurly dispruted by Auror searches of the castle, much to Dumbledores annoyance. The main focus of classes is defence against the Dark Arts, though some feel the Dark Arts themselves should be taught to the students. Dumbledore is trying to keep the school unaffected by whats happening, but its hard when students parents are dying, and their world is in chaos.

The muggle world is in slight turmoil, though they have yet to spot a connection between all the random acts of violence happening across the globe, putting it down to "bad luck" or "bad karma". Muggle Authorities have been told by the Ministry whats happening, but they refuse to realise Voldemorts full potential danger.

Focus
As the focus of this game is the Order, no students will be accepted. We are accepting original characters, but OCs will not be allowed in the Order. There are several characters from the canon that are just a name, so you can feel free to be creative with their lives and personalities while still playing a canon character. Our current most needed/wanted characters: Peter Pettigrew (urgently!!), Alastor Moody, Frank Longbottom, Arthur Weasley, Molly Weasley, Milicent Bagnold (Minister of Magic), Junior Barty Crouch, and many more.
