Welcome to MuggleNet's fan fiction section! Feel free to browse around and read the stories, but you will need to register for a free account if you want to comment on them or submit your own.

As you have probably noticed, the site is currently undergoing some changes. Our main software has been growing a bit creaky and is in need of some care. Just like the Burrow, our building blocks are a little off kilter so please bear with us whilst we bring the site back into working order.

Whilst we are working on recapturing our beautiful dragon and that signature MNFF look, we hope you enjoy this new responsive design that should be accessible on any platform or medium.

If you discover any bugs in the code, please do let us know on our forums, over on our Facebook page, or by contacting our coder on twitter @RoxyBlackMNFF

And don't forget our Beta Boards can be found, as always, just here.

Server Migration

by Rosie @ 06/24/16 15:10  
Hello lovely authors,

With the beginning of a new Era in the Wizarding World fast approaching, we need to move to a new server. As such, the queue is currently closed to prevent anyone's work getting lost along the way.

Please bear with us for a few days whilst we pack up our travelling cases and sort ourselves out. We will be back very soon with all of your beloved content!

Please refrain from posting reviews or comments for the time being as these will likely get lost as well.

Reading from our archive is welcomed and encouraged, but you may experience some downtime during the change over. Please accept our apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.

Quicksilver Quill Awards 2016

by the opaleye @ 06/17/16 3:54  

Hello, and welcome to the eleventh annual Quicksilver Quill awards!

Everyone’s favourite MNFF awards ceremony has rolled around once again. Since 2006, the Quicksilver Quills have celebrated the best writing MNFF has to offer. Each year, stories are nominated and judged by our members. Some of MNFF’s finest readers and writers assess each nomination and decide upon the winners.

Like last year, there will be a few changes. Rather than having the traditional twelve categories, we have condensed the categories to six. In each category there may be one or two winners, and winners may be separated into one-shots and chaptered.


Categories

  • Best General Story (contains best General, Mystery, History, Marauder Era, Humor, and Alternate Universe fics)
  • Best Dark/Angsty Story
  • Best Canon Romance Story (contains the SSP of Dumbledore/Grindelwald)
  • Best Non-Canon Romance Story (contains all other SSPs)
  • Best Poetry
  • Best Post-Hogwarts/Next Generation Story

Nomination threads are currently open and will close June 30th. Judging will begin soon after. Anyone is welcome to submit a nomination either via the forums or as a comment on the archives. We are looking to find the absolute best stories from the last twelve months. They should be well-written, have engaging plots and characters, and be a good representation of the category for which they are nominated (though they don’t necessarily have to have been submitted to the corresponding archive category). In short, they should be the stories that make you go WOW.


The rules are similar to previous years but please refresh yourself with them anyway to make sure you nominate the right stories in the right categories.

Rules

+ Only stories written (or, in the case of chaptered fics, updated) since the 1st June 2015 are eligible to be nominated.
+ Stories do not have to be in the corresponding archive category to be nominated. For example, a story may be in a romance category but if you think it is particularly dark, it can be nominated in Dark/Angst.
+ An author or story can win more than one award in the same year. We reserve the right to place a cap on the number of awards given to any one author/story at a later date.
+ An author is eligible to win in a category they have been either winner or runner up in before.
+ Winning stories from previous years may not be nominated again in any category, though with the twelve month rule, we do not expect this to be an issue.
+ Please use the form provided in the first post of each nomination thread and ensure you provide a working link. Nominations that do not follow the correct format will be removed.
+ Do not second nominations “ seconding clutters up threads and gives an unrealistic indication of how many stories have been nominated. Having more than one nomination does not increase a story’s chances of winning.
+ Any author can be nominated, including moderators.
+ Each person may only nominate a maximum of FIVE stories across the six categories. Please try and keep all your nominations for a category in one post to make it easier to keep track of how many stories you have nominated.
+ There is a cap on the maximum number of stories able to be nominated this year at thirty-five. Again, due to the low estimated participation of judges it is simply not realistic to judge more stories than this. This means that nominations
will be done on a first come, first serve sort of basis.

These are changes from 2014's rule of twenty-five per member and no limit on total stories.
+ The judging committees reserve the right not to present an award in any categories where they do not feel the standard of nominations is high enough. However this will only be done as a last resort.

Judging

There is a thread open on the forums for members to volunteer to be judges. This can be found in Fiction Junction. Judging can be demanding but also fun, and we really value the input of as many members as possible in the judging process. You can find more information on judging in the sign-up thread. We do require that one be a member of the forums in order to judge, as judging does take place within the forums.

Finally…

If you have any questions, please post below! Any nominations, also post below, using this form:

The Fantastic Beasts Challenge

by the opaleye @ 04/28/16 4:58  

The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer has sent the fandom abuzz, so let's write some fic! Take any of the trailers, teasers, posters or clips that have been released so far and use them to inspire a fic or poem. It's that simple. I've provided some prompts below but you don't need to use them if you think of something else which tickles your fancy.

It could be a specific scene, line or shot from the trailer, or it could just feature a fantastical beast even if it’s not shown in the trailer at all. You could write something about Newt himself, one of the new characters introduced, or Newt's son Rolf and daughter-in-law Luna! Really, the choice is yours. Let’s just celebrate one of the many exciting things happening in our fandom right now.

The challenge will be open until May 31st, 11:59pm GMT. Please post a link to your submissions in the comments below, or post in the challenge thread on our beta boards.

Prompt 1: May 2nd, 1998
Many creatures fought and died in the Battle of Hogwarts, either for or against our heroes. Make one of them the focus of your fic.

Prompt 2: Riddle Me This
"Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense."
On October 6th 2014, JKR posted the above cryptic message on Twitter. Unscramble that and you get, "Newt Scamander only meant to stay in New York for a few hours." Use this as the first line of your fic and take it from there.

Prompt 3: Niffler
Personally, I think the trailer's stand-out star is that adorable Niffler. That's it. That's the prompt: a Niffler.
