It is set during Harry’s sixth year, and begins when unforeseen consequences with Polyjuice Potion in Potions class cause Harry and Draco to become indefinitely body-swapped. Valentine was a strange mixture of Lucius and Voldemort. Pre-review October 30, Because nothing says Halloween like reading one of the most controversial fanfics of all time. I actually wasn’t when I started the Draco Trilogy, and caswandra was one of the things that writing it taught me, is that I have to outline or I will get lost and wander around in the middle.

I’m not sure whether it was a cunning plan to gain prestige and get a professional contract or whether it was just the naivety of early pioneers of fanfiction figuring out what was allowable and what wasn’t However, after reading Draco Dormiens I think cassanda it would be easy to use a similar dynamic between the main three characters in an original YA fantasy fiction.

However, if you are the type of a person who takes offense easily, please do not read forward.

This is quite interesting. There’s solid writing here, beyond the borrowed elements.

The Draco Trilogy

I honestly love Cassandra Clare, but this? I can’t believe this is actually on Goodreads. This and a very limited amount of other fandom works at that time opened people’s eyes to the possibility that fanfiction could actually be very good, that in some senses it could be as good as canon.

Im trying to clearly distinguish between Tom Felton, who is a good-looking young boy, and Draco, who, whatever he looks like, is not drsco nice man. In Junewhen the fanfic was one chapter away from completion, it was reported for plagiarism and Clare’s works were deleted from the site.


I also have not read Draco Dormiens and it seems like the perfect plot that I would enjoy so now I have another on my reading list! The trilogy contributed to the casssndra of Fanon Draco, called “Leather Pants Draco” after a famous scene in Draco Sinister where Draco ends up looking good in incredibly tight leather pants.

I’ve been feeling a bit inferior because I have major writer’s block and I just read all this clwire stuff by our pantheon so Draco Veritas totals nearlywords. The series begins with a love triangle where both Draco and Harry are interested in Hermione. Probably because Clare’s Hermione doesn’t resemble Rowling’s.

Draco Dormiens

Perhaps she was dishonest, but perhaps she was just a young but talented fan writer making mistakes while trying to get out the best fanfiction she could, or perhaps it was a combination of the two. As far as I can tell they are the two most popular Harry Potter fanfics. City of Bones I could actually finish — it was a painful experience in a way that’s at least half funny, AND it contains a quote that describes said experience perfectly “If you were half as funny as you think you are, you’d be twice as funny as you are now”.

I mean, triangles like that are commonplace in YA literature, what makes the difference is how well they are written. I have never been so enthralled by anything I’ve read online. Of course, with the original series the author cannot plagiarize any lines or passages from other authors In addition, they are the stereotipical characters found in every single book written by Cassandra Clare I have read: Every detail of Rowling’s world is slaving away in service of poor humor not much different from that of the worst American comedies.

Unavailable as of 23 April ; archived version here. The story is now an AUdiverging from canon after Goblet of Fire. If this is what it takes to become a National Bestselling author, I definitely will not be hanging up my hat anytime soon. I secretly judge other bookish people for reading her books, especially the fannish type, but I realize that’s probably me holding a silly grudge for way too long. Also, I really don’t want to be next to be blacklisted.


To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: Fred and George are also perfectly as cheeky and mischievous as they are in canon. After the first two books in her Mortal Instruments series everything started repeating itself. It’s a YA romantic comedy and it’s also an adventure novel, and the two things coexist together quite well.

There was also a good deal of controversy in fandom when the author was blacklisted from Fan Fiction Dot Net for plagiarizing lengthy passages from a Pamela Dean series without attribution and, apparently, lying about having permission to use the passages in her fanfiction, although she did sort of get permission after she was caught.

It took me three years to even name them.

The Draco Trilogy – Fanlore

Draco turns into a human being on page 16 when he’s learnt that Hermione feels sorry for him! Apr 27, Pesky Bee rated it did not like trliogy Shelves: April 5, deviantArt search for Draco Trilogy. I don’t agree with what she did later with her own novels, and they never really appealed to me.

Claire was about as above board with using lines from other shows as one can be. And Jace, of course, was undeniably Draco. Instead, she left Casssndra Mortal Instruments and started writing a steampunk trilogy set in Victorian England.

Static snapshots of the search results can be viewed here and here Date: Sorry if I gave that impression. Both boys then fall for the girl, and she’s attracted to both trilgy them and agonizing over which one is right for her. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Still, even though she did wrong, I’m not quite ready to lynch her. For me there’s no gray area in plagiarism: It’s not a long novel, at around I don’t usually tell anyone the real reason I haven’t read any of her books because I know they’d think it’s weird and not that serious.
