My fan fiction stories take place in the magical world created by J. K. Rowling in her seven magnificent Harry Potter novels. I ignore other sources, especially the movies, but also Pottermore, Twitter, and interviews of Ms Rowling. One reason is it allows me freedom to envision what happened after book seven ended or how certain events transpired within the novels that Ms Rowling did not cover in detail. Another reason is the volume of additional unconsolidated information; it is hard to keep track of and reference it (just look at various wiki sources on the Harry Potter universe and you will see what I mean). Finally, readers may not be aware of some or all of the new information and might confuse Ms Rowling’s authoritative additions with my own fanciful ones. If you find I have slipped up in this approach, it was not intentional.

 

Across all my stories, I have tried to be internally consistent. An event in one story will have occurred in all other stories that take place in the same timeframe or later. The description or interpretation of the event may vary based on the character’s viewpoint, their level of knowledge or participation, etc. – hopefully like real life. In this way, the stories complement one another, though each stands alone.

 

 

Some of my stories are quite dark, but I hope not too much. One of my themes is to expose the evil of the dark side and eliminate all traces of glamour or excitement often associated with it in commercial media. So now you know one of my biases. You’ll probably pick up some others as well. A section preceding each story provides a suggested minimum maturity level for story readers, along with the type of content which might be objectionable – much like a movie rating.

 

My stories are for fans. I emphasize this because I don’t spend time on exposition of J. K. Rowling’s characters, places, magic, or story history. It wastes time for the fan writer and the fan reader. Besides, how could you improve on what Ms Rowling has already perfected? I only use exposition when I create new characters, places, etc.

 

I have no grand scheme or arc to my stories. The ideas just pop into my head, usually when I’m walking for exercise, and sometimes when I am trying to fall asleep.

 

My first story idea was actually a dream, complete from beginning to end. I wrote it exactly as I dreamed it. In fact, it was so vivid, I woke up from it and couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I got up and wrote it all down. That was the first time I had ever written a story in my life.

 

I thought it would be my last, but to my surprise, other story ideas just started popping up at random, though only one at a time. I don’t seem to get a new one until I have completed the last one. As I write this, I am working on story number ten. Each time I wonder if there will be another.

 

I occasionally, though rarely, quote from J. K. Rowling’s novels. When I do, the text is bolded, and I reference the quote and source in end notes to the story.

 

I hope you enjoy reading my stories as much as I have enjoyed writing them. My greatest pleasure is reading them aloud chapter by chapter to my wife, my dearest and greatest fan.
