Tough Guide Disclaimer: We do not own Harry Potter OR the Tough
Guide to Fantasy which we have shamelessly used as a template. We naturally
highly recommend Diana Wynne Jones’s fine and hilarious book to any fantasy
Disclaimer to our readers and beloved fanfic writers: We tease
because we love. We could hardly be aware of the new fanon if we had not
spent countless hours enjoying it! While we admit to irritation with some
of these rules in general we have taken great pleasure in the many plot
devices and descriptions mentioned below (Rugi is particularly fond of
Snape’s silky voice) (Gwena makes no comment on his voice but admits a
weakness for his spicy smell).
And of course: All reviews (Yes even Flames) are welcome and encouraged.
What all of this means
Welcome to the Harry Potter Fanfic Hogwarts (from now on known as HPFH)!
As a wise tourist you have utilized this handy guidebook to take you through
the many rules, requirements, and regulations of this most fascinating
locale. Though we are certain that many if not all of our readers are
well-versed in the nature of JKR’s creation, this Guide is dedicated to
the variations that many minor authors have made on her work. It would
be pathetically naive for the tourist to believe that knowledge of JKR’s
most excellent books would adequately prepare them for HPFH. Thank you
again for your attention.
1. OFT – Official Fanfiction Term signifies a word that, while not necessarily
considered so in our world, bears a more specific or useful meaning in
HPFH. Examples being Voices that are always silky or Sleep which
has the OFT of restless or talking in it.
2. While the authors (Rugi and Gwena) are seasoned travelers in the lands
of Het relationships we are novices in the area of slash and thus this
guide can generally only be recommended to the tourist interested in these
regions. We will certainly accept advice from experienced slash travelers
and add their information as it comes.
3. While the lands which we have traversed have often exceeded the PG-13
rating, we will endeavor to keep this guidebook at that level and save
our own blushes.
4. The entries in this guide are listed in alphabetical order. Relationships
are listed under the name of the male involved. Characters are listed
under the name they are most generally known by in canon and everything
is cross indexed.
