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.

2017 Quicksilver Quill Awards! Nominations open!

2017 Quicksilver Quill Awards! Nominations open!

Yes, that’s right, everyone’s favourite MNFF award ceremony has rolled around once again. Since 2006, the Quicksilver Quills have celebrated the best writing MNFF has to offer, last year giving thirteen writing awards across six categories. 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.

Over the last few years, changes were implemented in order to streamline the judging process. However, this year, instead of removing a category, we’re actually adding one - Best New Canon. This is to recognise all the amazing new stories our authors have been writing inspired by the additional material from Pottermore, Fantastic Beasts and The Cursed Child.


+ 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
+ Best New Canon

Nomination threads open today and will close at the end of the day on 30th June 2017, at which point there will be a one week break in order to assign judges to each category. Judging will begin in mid July. Anyone is welcome to submit a nomination either via the forums, as a comment here on the archives or via the MNFF tumblr. 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.


+ Only stories published or updated since the 1st June 2016 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 funny, it can be nominated in humour.
+ 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.
+ 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.
+ There is no limit to the number of fics you can nominate.
+ 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.
+ 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.


As with the past few years, a thread has been opened on the forums for members to volunteer to be judges. 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 takes place within the forums.

If you have any questions, please post below!

The NOTP Valentine Ficathon

by the opaleye @ 01/20/17 23:59  

Fic Masterlist:
Love and Alchemy by Kerichi
Sticks and Stones by whichone
The Other Woman by whichone
Threads of Hope by Oregonian

Not all ships were created equal. Some are just more doomed than others. We’re going to celebrate that.

We don't just have OTPs. Most of us have ships we don't like, or even hate. This ficathon is for those ships. The NOTPs.

In this activity you will write fics or poems for various ships you don't particularly like. Rather than a challenge, it’s more of an activity to give some ships you don't really like a go, and to see them in a new light. All fics will be posted here in a masterlist and featured on the MNFF tumblr.

So how is this going to work?

+ Write a fic for a ship that you currently do not like or once disliked. As per usual, you may write as many fics as you like!

+ Fics should be 800+ words. They can be one-shots or chaptered. You may also write a poem.

+ This activity will run until March 1st, 11:59pm GMT.

+ We have a thread on the beta boards where you can post prompts for writers to use, but writers do not need to use the prompts if they don't want to.

+ Go to this thread to read the prompts and post your own. If you claim a prompt and write a fic, you can post the link to your fic in the comments below or in the Great Hall here.
