What constitues plagarism?
I'm new here and I'm wondering what exactly constitutes plagarism. For example if JRK describes travelling by port key as 'a jerk from behind the navel, floor vanishing in a rush of wind and a swirl of colours' can we use this discription in a fanfic or would that be plargarism??
