Morning Meanderings… What Rock Is This Thy Crawled Out From Underneath?

1j

Good morning!

Last night I was reading the blog of a new follower and was reading a list of books she was looking into when she had made a comment about one that caught my attention.  She was speaking on Cassandra Clare (Mortal Instrument series) and she was saying that she liked her even though she did not approve of  the whole fanlore things and Harry Potter.

Well… if you know me at all, you know the words that stuck out for me were Hatty Potter.  I knew nothing of this so started my internet snooping late last night and found information on the Fanlore site (who knew?) regarding her trilogy she wrote called The Draco Trilogy.

Well seriously!  Where have I been – calling myself this big Potter head – movies, books, tours, board games…. and not ever having heard of this?  Why do I not own a time turner to go back in time and find these books and read them… and if you are wondering why I dont read them now…

they appear to have been deleted off the site. 

As the site says:

Author’s summary: “When Hermione is kidnapped, Harry and Draco must team up to rescue her from a thousand-year-old evil that threatens the entire wizarding world. Cursed demon swords, love potions, time travel, dementors, flying dragons, Draco wears leather, and everybody dies at least once. Except when they don’t.”

It also says the trilogy only appeared on line for about two weeks before the author pulled them to start her own writing career.  SO….. riddle me this:

Did you know of these books?

Did you read these books?

And most importantly… do you know anyone who downloaded the books?  :razz:

  1. Not a Harry Potter follower, so no, I did not! lol

    Too bad about that, though. Don’t you hate it when you find out about something when it’s too late?

  2. No, no and more no. :-)

    Happy Mother’s Day Sheila!

  3. They’re not books. They’re fanfiction. You might be able to find them if you google around. I’ve personally never read it because I was never a huge Draco fan.

  4. Once something is posted on the web it’s always out there somewhere. I haven’t read the the books but I know where you can download them. I sent you an email.

  5. If they are the ones I am thinking of they were pulled for plagiarism. Cassandra Clare was in the center of a pretty big uproar in fanfiction of plagiarism. There were blogs that exposed all the plagiarized passages, settings etc. It was very controversial since some people were huge fans and said they didn’t care, she came out and said that it was a “game” she played with her fans (“see if you can spot the reference,ha ha”) and other people were outraged. Pamela Dean was the author primarily stolen from, along with the Buffy TV series, and a bunch of other stuff. There was one clearinghouse site that detailed it all, but it was so long ago, I doubt it is still active.

    • That would explain why this site I was on yesterday said they were not sure they liked her as author after these fanfare tales were written…. Thanks for more information. :D I am truly out of the loop.

  6. But…wait…who is Hatty Potter?
