Fanfiction

Fanfiction refers to fiction written by fans using characters/situations from an original piece of work (in this case HP by J.K Rowling); books, movies, t.v show, etc. Fanfiction can be seperated into het, slash and general.

Het refers to heterosexual pairings, example Harry/Hermione. Slash refers to pairings of the same sex, example Sirius/Remus. Homosexual pairings are also known as yaoi. Lesbian relationships are commonly referred to as "femslash" or "femmeslash".

Unconventional pairings or non-canon pairings refer to a pairing that was not present/promoted in the original storyline, example Ginny/Luna, Severus/James, Draco/Hermione.

Adult/Mature fanfiction can either contain sexual content, explicit language or violence.

Fanfiction.net is a popular site which contains all genres of fanfiction and over 450,000+ Harry Potter stories.
