A taste of the fan-fiction of Harry Potter and Star Wars expanding universes
Audience, Authorship, & Agency
On 9 November 2007, Rowling's agent Neil Blair denied that Rowling was in any way involved with the purported project, and Warner Bros., the studio which owns the rights to the Harry Potter film series, denied that the novel was in any way connected to the official Harry Potter franchise.
...Now he has had millions of readers and is on his third book.
This is our LJ community for Lionchilde and I, where all the Star Wars AU are posted, along with the videos (we both made One Path videos).
Cariel http://dramatic-personae.net/
She writes for both Harry Potter and Star Wars, and mostly AU (Anakin/Dormé) for Star Wars. I think she also made some videos.
Lionchilde http://so-out-of-fic.livejournal.com/tag/fic%3A%20star%20wars
Lionchilde doesn’t only write AU fanfictions, so here is the tag to her canon related Star Wars fan fictions on her other LJ. (See the crack series Vader’s cat? It’s pure awesomeness of craziness).
Nicole http://bleeding-muse.livejournal.com/tag/crossover%3A%20vala%2Fobi-wan
She did more videos and graphics for Star Wars, but this was her Stargate SG-1/Star Wars crossover. She wrote the fiction and made vids out of it as well.
Polgarawolf http://polgarawolf.livejournal.com/profile
She writes long and big AU for the most part (I never read them, but she is a very productive writer).

"A long time ago...." ROLEPLAYING BOARDS
There are many RP boards but some of the earliest are the most interesting
These 3 emerged at the same time in 1999 - 13 years ago!
A fair number of writers have been posting at 2 or 3 of those boards at some point, sometimes even now.
The 3 boards keep a common history, including cross-posting members and characters, which tie them in a same community.

Okay so that’s my SW vid page on my fannish website, sorted out by universe (canon, One Path, SWRPG, Shattered Fates). But depending on what you need, you can watch one of the two videos I made for talks I gave about vidding. Below are the two links to my pro site:
(That’s the one where I RP and am a staff member.)
This is the Fanlore page for Star Wars fandom, where you might also find other interesting links. Fanlore is a project run by the Organization for Transformative Works that is dedicated to be a wiki of fandom (people, creations, history).
"...in a galaxy far, far, away!"
"I’m starting a campaign on Facebook. Call me a dreamer but I want Racheal to be immortalized forever as a canonized Star Wars character. I’m asking people to friend me on Facebook, the Facebook group is http://www.facebook.com/pages/Canonize-Racheal/465882630103780 Canonize Racheal.
Search it, join it, add comments."
-Rachel's Husband
Racheal Ambrose-Stinson died in a car accident a few months back (hence how it’s her husband who posted the last few entries on her site). She was a big name in SW fandom, including speaking at conventions, but a real sweetie.

In November 2007, The Scotsman reported that Rowling had threatened legal action against American computer programmer G. Norman Lippert for allegedly violating her intellectual property rights by producing and publishing the online novel, James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing, an unofficial and unauthorised continuation of the Harry Potter series.
Written as a fan fiction project for Lippert's wife and sons, the novel is set eighteen years after the end of the last official installment in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and describes the adventures of Harry Potter's son, James Potter, during his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
However, after Lippert offered Rowling an advance copy of the novel, Rowling dismissed her threat and said she supported the novel and any others like it.
Lippert subsequently produced a sequel, James Potter and the Curse of the Gatekeeper.
After the novel first appeared online in early November 2007, some Harry Potter fans on the Internet initially speculated that the site might be part of an elaborate viral marketing campaign for an official continuation or spinoff of Harry Potter, one either written or at least approved by Rowling herself.
Lipert has gotten much more good feedback than bad for his work, which is available for free download. Overall, they are fun books if you are not one of the “cannon police” and a way to really stay plugged into the potter universe.
*The tone is different from Rowlings in that the language is not as descriptive or flowery and often Lipert builds his stories off of assumed descriptions. For instance, he does not see the need to describe Cirius Black’s house in great detail because anyone that would be reading his book would already have a solid image of the house built from reading Rowling’s work.
Mistakes caught by the cannon police

o Miss-spelling Kreacher’s name

o Didn’t transliterate Hagrid’s accent

o Had first and second years in some of the same classes
After having written the first book, Lipert, in his own words, “discovered that there are two distinct kinds of Harry Potter readers. There are those for whom the magical world’s myriad details exist merely as the foundation for the story and the characters, which are the real heart of the tale; and then there are those that I have come to think of (affectionately) as the “Cannon Police.” He stated that from time to time he would receive notes of correction that were the “equivalent of Howlers” and sometimes said that he had “ruined Harry Potter”.

· The Americans come to Hogwarts for the year (headed by Benjamin Franklyn) They drive flying cars.

· An American boy attends the school for a year (an homage to the author’s son)

· A “muggle born” boy brings his hand-held game system to Hogwarts

· Merlin returns
*Series is built off of Rowling’s core universe, but there are a few elements that may have not been included had Rowling written the books herself.
