Lie Low at Lupin's
“Sirius, I need you to set off at once. You are to alert Remus Lupin, Arabella Figg, Mundungus Fletcher - the old crowd.
Lie low at Lupin’s for a while
; I will contact you there."
Adagio

Stories that use characters, events and other elements from an existing narrative
Story: what narrative is
Discourse: how narrative is told
"imagined narrative"
Conclusion
“Fanfic exists in the interstices, in the ellipses and the enjambment. Fanfiction exists in the moment before the wave function collapses. A transformative work doesn’t actually transform the original media it is based off of (because the original medium exists in a fixed state and cannot be literally changed by fans unless the canon creators allow it to be so) so much as take the essential structure of the narrative and the characters and twist it, turn it, rotate and reflect it until we’ve built a fractal around it.”
We hope you enjoyed our presentation!
