Update on MA thesis on HP fan fiction [09 May 2009|04:33pm]


With this message, I would like to thank all of you who answered my questionnaire at http://fanfiction.frontexperts.com (see the original message below) and have given me helpful feedback. Many of you who sent me emails with comments let me know that my questionnaire did not fully embrace your experience with fan fiction. Because a survey is a highly standardized research instrument, there was no way of avoiding this problem but I decided to broaden my research design according to the concerns conveyed to me. Thus, I would like to conduct a group discussion with fan fiction authors where they will have the opportunity to freely talk about their experience without being bound by narrow questions like in the survey.

Therefore, I am looking for Harry Potter fan fiction authors who will attend the LeakyCon 2009 from May 21st-24th in Boston and who would be willing to get together for an hour or two as a group to discuss their experience with me and the other fan fiction authors. As far as I can tell from the LeakyCon schedule, Saturday morning would probably work best to meet for the discussion. Also, it would give us a chance to get to know each other on Thursday or Friday. I will provide a space at the hotel where we will be undisturbed and make sure we have drinks and snacks. A group of 8-12 people would work best but if there are too few people for a group discussion, I would be happy to meet with any of you informally at LeakyCon to talk about your experience as a fan fiction author.

By participating in a group discussion, you would make an immense contribution to the quality and accuracy of my research. I am looking forward to meeting you in person and hearing about your life in Harry Potter fan fiction. If you want to participate please let me know until May 19th by replying to this message or at fanfictions@ gmx.net or petra.baumann@edu.uni-graz.at.

Thank you so much for your repeated help!

Harry Potter Fan Fiction - Help with MA thesis! [16 Apr 2009|12:57am]

I hope it's OK that I'm posting this message here. I do not have any financial interest whatsoever, this message regards academic research only!

My name is Petra Baumann and I’m doing research for my master’s thesis in sociology on Harry Potter fan fiction at the University of Graz, Austria. As a sociologist, I am especially interested in the social background of fan fiction authors: where they come from, how old they are, etc. Through my research I found that, many studies on fan fiction are done in the fields of literary studies, women studies, or cultural studies but there are very little sociological data available, especially on the Harry Potter fan fiction community.

In order to gather sociological data on Harry Potter fan fiction authors, I developed a short online questionnaire. If you are an author of Harry Potter fan fiction you would immensely help me with my research if you could answer this questionnaire at

The questions will take about 10 minutes to answer and there will be no spam or advertising when you click the link. The evaluation is done anonymously and the data will be used solely for academic research. If you have any questions regarding the questionnaire or my research please feel free to contact me at fanfictions@gmx.net or visit my LifeJournal.

Thank you!

Lucius [06 Nov 2003|08:39pm]

With each slow thrust Lucius buried himself deeper, body tense as he kept himself from ramming into the boy any harder. James was relaxing, pain receding even as Lucius' pleasure grew. He was desperate for completion, desperate for James'.

He angled himself differently and James gasped. It was only a small sound but enough to make him sigh and speed up a little, hitting that spot more as frequently as possible. James was soon writhing again, clutching at the blonde and rubbing his erection against Lucius' stomach. Groaning, he reached down to grasp the boys throbbing shaft, flicking his thumb over the tip. James cried out and arched into him.

A few more well aimed thrusts and they were both nearing the precipice. Lucius faught the pull, wanting it to last longer now that the end seemed so close. He wanted more. He wanted it all. He wanted to own James and for everyone to know it. He bit down hard, drawing blood, hoping that it would leave a permanent mark, yet knowing that it was unlikely. At least of a while James would be his.

James cried out against his tie as Lucious pushed the boundary further, his conscious self nearly regained control but not before Lucious ran his tongue up the dark boy's neck and bit down hard.
James strained against the new pain, just barely distracting him from the other pain. Both were mounting to something stirring inside of James, some excitement. Lucious took his cue as James relaxed just a little. The blonde began to slide, moving his hips slowly, easing into a rhythm gently. As much as James struggled against him, Lucius kept a persistent hold on his neck -- biting down just a little harder whenever James seemed too close to that edge of conscious thought.
James' breathing became ragged and heavy as he made muffled noises...it hurt but the pain was becoming almost numbing, it was giving way.

A flash of triumph went through Lucius as James finally stopped trying to up the pace and finally gave over control. He brought his hand back up and spit on it once more, bringing it down to cover his erection, coating it thoroughly. He pushed gently against the boys opening, pushing him up to gaze into James' face. The Gryffindo boys face was flushed and damp, eyes clearer than they had started out as. He layed a kiss on his chin, then his cheek, wishing again, that he dared take off the gag.

James pushed himself against the intrusion, then froze. There was no doubt to be some pain. Lucius wanted there to be some reminder of this tomorrow, which was why he hadn't used any lubrication spells, but it was likely to pass. He continued to drop kissed over James' face and shoulder, drawing the boys attention away from the pain. James began to relax and Lucius pushed in another inch, his back and shoulders tense as he fought the urge to just give in just give in and let his own desperation take over.

James couldn't stop himself even if he wanted to -- and he didn't want to. He groaned through his gag loudly, his breath quickening to sharp draws exhaling only in sounds of pleasure.
He pushed against Lucius, rolling his hips up and against Lucius' hips. He kept grinding harder against Lucius; anything to satisfy this built up need that was coursing through his whole body. His heartbeat quickened. The attentions that Lucius was giving to James' neck were bringing James to the edge and as their erections met James nearly came -- it was almost enough and he sensed it.
He brought his body forward more violently now, instinct knew it was close. The hand on James' hip made for some resistance but James was fiercely trying to break through. The feeling was maddening and it made James desperate. Lucius pushed back a little harder, bringing the rhythm down little by little. James became lost in a less intense but more perpetual state of ecstacy. His movements slowed and soon he was just rocking gently, letting Lucius' hand guide the pace.

A few more twists and James was writhing beneath him, bound arms pulling him closer. Lucius' breath had started to come as rapidly as the other boys and he realized just how much clothing was keeping him from his prize. Moving his hand away from James, the blonde began to riggle out of his slacks, nearly popping the button in his haste.

James cried out desperately, arching forwards to bring his erection to press against Lucius' stomach. A harsh curse escaped the taller boy before he could stop himself, the sudden contact enflaming his already raging desire. He scrabbled at his pants, kicking them off and tearing at the buttons of his shirt. This uniform wasn't likely to survive this little excursion and at this point Lucius was past caring.

He latched onto James's neck once more, bathing it with his tongue as his hips jerked to meet the Gryffindor's, flesh finally meeting blessed flesh. Heat course through him, bathing his usally cool frame in a strange warmth he had never experienced before. One hand was curving around the boys hips, trying to still the frenzied movements so he could prepare himself, while the other still half supporting his body weight. James kept straining against him, trying to bring himself to completion even as Lucius was trying to slow them.

The bitter silk didn't taste like anything to James anymore. The cloth had lost all quality in his mouth, it was simply in the way. James could feel himself get hot, his face was warm and red -- it felt almost numb. The breathing was rhythmic...and had he been paying any attention he would have noticed it matched perfect pace with the Slytherin's own heavy breaths: the deep gasp of air, the harsh exhalation as the excitement and pleasure built upwards.
James was blinded by the new sensation penetrating his body, there was no recognition of just who was settled between his legs. There was just the knowledge that another body -- cold but firm -- was breathing on him, holding him...consuming him. He never would have thought...another boy... ...or had he? True, there was that Lily girl...but there was something(someone) else, too. Something about...
His mind swirled the thoughts around in a blur before he could complete the thought. Lucius re-captured James' consciousness by slipping one more finger inside; James groaned in-spite of himself and rocked his body against the steady strokes. He didn't notice Lucius' darkening smile twisting his pale face. All James noticed was the provocative heat in his groin and painful erection....he didn't notice as Lucius slowly began to move himself down, little by little...

Lucius [16 Oct 2003|05:03pm]

Smiling wickedly, Lucius spit on his hand, settling himself comfortably between James' legs. His movements were hindered by the bound arms about his neck, but Lucius continued on, holding himself up with one hand, the other traveling low on James' body. He knew that anything that disrupted the Gryffindor's pleasure was likely to wake him from his daze. Any shock to his system and Lucius would lose out on his chance at having a go at the boy. Lucius smirked into James' tanned neck. Not bloody likely.

After a moment of brief hesitation -- from worry of James relizing just who he was, not from second thoughts -- Lucius brought his hand down to trail down the boys erection. After a few moments of teasing caresses, he continued, bringing hands down to press against the boys opening. James froze a moment and Lucius was sure that he's just lost his chance, but James moaned and wriggled a bit. Lucius circled the tight ring a few times, nuzzling against James' chest, letting his breath come out in slow puffs. Then, he entered the boy, one finger, slow and easy so as not to harm him.

James' breath left him in heavy pants as he squirmed, not quite trying to get away, yet not quite accepting the intrusion. Another finger joined the first and James cried out, as much pain as pleasure evident in the his voice. Lucius didn't give him much time to register anything as he twisted his fingers, searching even as his stretched the boy.

Ah! There we are... James pushed against Lucius' hand, loud shouts muffled by his tie. It didn't seem that there would be any struggle after this point.

I know, I know this will move eventually -- but in the meantime I doodled a little James!

James gasped through his gag, saliva escaping the corners of his mouth. His once-bright eyes were glazed over and half-lidded. It didn't matter, he didn't need to see -- let alone think -- to feel what Lucius was doing to his body.
Lucius' mouth sucking on his neck directly fired the longing in his groin...and with Lucius' hand already there, enveloping his erection and stroking it rhythmically, the sensation only mounted on itself. James' primal self had taken over.
Lucius pushed James' trousers down past the knees. James could only oblige as he kicked at his pants, tangled under Lucius. He managed to kick them completely off his legs and he sat open to the pale teen's attentions.
James brought his bound hands down, around the back of Lucius' elegant neck; James' arms rested on the smooth, almost alabaster shoulders and he pulled in closer as best as he could. He suddenly needed to be much closer.
...And he needed...he didn't know what he needed...but Lucious was providing something, and it was all James could do to keep himself from coming.

Lucius [07 Sep 2003|08:33pm]

Lucius ran his one hand down to James' hip, stilling the frantic movements. He moved the other to tug at the others pants, fumbling with the button and slipping his hand inside. The reaction was instantaneous as James moaned into his gag and thrust upwards. A soft chuckle escaped his lips as Lucius wrapped his hand around the boys erection.

The blonde continued run his mouth over James' neck, moving lower to delve his tounge into the hollow at the base of the boys throat. His own breath was becoming more erratic, his blood coursing heatedly through his veins and Lucius knew he wasn't going to be able to deny himself his own desires for long. The pulsing length being thrust within his grasp was only reminding of his own clamouring need. He pulled James' pants down further, satisfaction coursing through him as James lifted his hips eagerly to better allow the action.

James was vaguely aware of his own erection growing in his pants. The smell of the other boy -- a fresh sweat, a spice like cinnamon and a very small hint of sulphur -- was hanging around him, intoxicating his senses. He nuzzled forward into Lucius, his black hair falling further infront of his face and obscuring his glasses.
Somewhere...his mind was protesting. It was faint and barely audible to James as it tried to compete with the sound of Lucius' harsh breath in his ears. No...no...not Lucius...stop... James' own moans were muffled by his tie but they drowned his thoughts. No...
There was no resistance as Lucius pushed James' shirt completely off his torso. The sleeves clung to James' arms, the bundled shirt pushed against his bonds and further restricted his movement. James twisted awkwardly under Lucius, frustrated more with his restraints than the Slytherin boy over him. All James could do was submit as Lucius' mouth worked upwards while Lucius' hands worked down...

Lucius [27 Aug 2003|01:11am]

Sick bastard, wasn't it? A great deal of amusement touched Luicius' thoughts. What would that make you, Potter, for enjoying this so much?

But Lucius didn't say this out loud. No, that was likely to have broken the daze James seemed to have found himself in. That would have brought back the struggle. It would be much more amusing to see the boys horror and self disgust as he realized that he had been a willing particapant.

The blonde movement, previously harsh, turned gentle. His mouth found it's way once again towards the other boys neck as he settled himself more comfortably over to of James. The boy arched up to meet him and there was a strangled moan as both became more aware of the others growing arousal. James' breath had quickened, coming more heavily with each moment that passed. There was a desperation in his movements as he writhed beneath him and Lucius knew that James was his.

Lucius moved his hands over James' body, the cold smooth fingertips igniting new sensation against James' skin. James drew in a sharp breath around his gag. He couldn't swallow and the tie was quickly soaking up his saliva. The taste of silk and blood in his mouth was a bitter combination.
Lucius attacked James' neck again, sucking deeply just above the collar bone. His platinum hair was fine and soft as it brushed the side of James' jaw.
James whimpered through the crimson and gold silk; he squeezed his eyes shut...But what his mind was trying to refuse, his body could not deny.
He felt himself slipping, his mind shutting down. The heat in him, that had been so full of anger and fear, was adopting a new quality. His sweat was no longer cold on his brow. James could feel his face in a warm flush again. With his eyes still closed he gently pushed upwards against the Slytherin, pushing his body into Lucius' advances.
Whatever objections his mind may have had were becoming lost to what his body already knew.

Lucius [26 Aug 2003|07:55pm]

Lucius studied his handy work for a few moment. As much good as that gag was going to do him, it also caused a few problems. Plundering the boys mouth had been quite the experience and after that small taste he was already hungry for more. Of course now James would be unable to call for help, but the temptation was almost enough to make him remove it. Almost. Calculating logic had always been a Malfoy trait and he was not about to take the risk for such a needless desire.

Instead, he latched onto James' throat, dragging his teeth against the frantic pulse point. He forced his knee furth between the boys legs as bit down a little harder, hands wokring furiously at the buttons of James' shit. He relished in the continued struggle, pleasently surprised as it continued despite the restraints.

James gave a sudden, muffled squawk and Lucius looked up to find the boys face a mask of disgist and, amazingly, the beginnings of pleasuer. In that moment Lucius let himself show his surprise. The expression was gone as quickly as it had come. His mind whirled with new possibilities. What would be worse for James than being advantage by his most active rival? Enjoying it.

His hand caressed against the flesh at the boys side, a repeat of the action he thought had likely caused the reaction. He wasn't to be dissapointed.

Sirius [25 Aug 2003|05:23pm]

Where is he? Sirius thought angrily, stalking through the corridors. Snape was nowhere to be found, much to Black's chagrin. He felt like he'd searched everywhere! However, there was one more section of the castle he hadn't looked in.

Taking a right turn, Sirius stopped dead in his tracks when he saw Snape... but it wasn't only Snape. Remus was there, too. Tucking himself behind the corner, Sirius frowned. What the hell is that prat up to? And why is Remus here, instead of in the dorms...?

[james] bound [25 Aug 2003|08:59pm]

Lucius' icy breath against James' cheek only intensified the burning sensation welling up inside of James. He turned his head away and violently tried to break free from Lucius, each jolt carrying a little more weight and force. It soon became clear, though, that Lucius would be able to hold on far longer than James could writhe. James' adrenaline for the situation would diminish completely...and who knew what Lucius would try then.
James opened his mouth, and began to shout again.
"Let me go! Fuck you, Lucius! LET ME GO!"
Someone was bound to hear his screams.
Lucius sat back a little, annoyed that Potter wasn't willing to play. Without any warning, he curled his fist behind him and cracked James square in the jaw. Lucius shook his hand once and stretched his fingers. He then brought the hand to rest by James' throat.
The blonde leaned back in, insisting for a third time in an cool whisper: "Play nice."
James was stunned - in every way. He felt himself go pale and sweat break out along his forehead. His mouth felt numb, a thin line of blood trickled from his lip. The coppery taste was nauseating. He stared at Lucius from the corner of his eyes as his head rolled to the side. "Let me go...", he pleaded once more.
Lucius had already removed James' tie.
James reduced himself to begging, "Please, please, let me go..."
Lucius smiled, his teeth barred almost viciously. He wadded James' tie up with one hand, and stuffed it into James' mouth.

Lucius [25 Aug 2003|11:44pm]

Lucius merely pinned both James' arms above the boys head, moving to lay heavily against the other boys more muscular frame. He freed one hand, using it to loosen and remove his tie. Before James caught on to what he was doing, the green and silver striped material was tied securely about both of the boys tanned wrists.

James’ balking intensified as realization dawned and cobalt eyes turned wild and panicked. Lucius merely smirked menacingly and trailed one hand down to tug hard at a clump of black hair. He bent to whisper in the boys ear, "I thought you were told to play nice."
