Here's what the Guide to the Potterverse* has to say about Fanfiction Writers and their culture:
The Fanfiction Writer is a harmless creature that comes in many varieties and styles. However, most of them seem to be lacking in the way of name, some of the most common having 'skate', 'gurl', '4ever', and/or the name of a character from the fanfiction the writer likes to write in it.
The Fanfiction Writer is a semi-social creature, usually found in small groupings around forums. The younger ones tend to speak in an almost untranslatable language, some of the more common words being 'chappie' and 'kawaii' and one of the more common phrases being 'plz reveiw ppl!!!' Most of the elderly ones are more than happy to help the younger ones develop into fine writers, thus a strong bond is usually created in a Fanfiction Writer Community.
Most young Fanfiction Writers enjoy having a place to display useless facts about themselves, usually in the form of thousands of contradicting quiz results, on a place called an Author Page. While this display scares many away, a few patient elders will eventually discover, if they haven't been already advertised on every available surface on the forums, stories the young Fanfiction Writer has written.

* = Yes, it's a blantand rip-off of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
(To all who liked Caffeine High: Yes, I have started writing again. Along with another idea that's been brewing in my mind for quite some time. Hopefully I'll be able to form it into an actual story.)
Still like it! ;) Malfoy really deserved that punch. Go Harry/Luna! I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: thanks. Im glad you like it.
Very nice; I can't wait to read more! Go Harry/Luna!
I can't wait to read more! This is a brilliant idea!
That...was disturbing, even for me, but HILARIOUS!! XD I can't stop laughing! I do thank you for not putting Remus is a mini-skirt (don't ask).
That was awesome. Keep writing!
Hehe...I loved #13! Who's next?
Author's Response: Um. Next, I think, is Sirius, and then James. I have very good ways for them. Muahahaha...
Not as funny as the first...But still enjoyable. ;) *cuddles with Ron*
Author's Response: I was having writer's block on the second chapter. I have that once every blue moon. Actually, once every green moon.
I understand that that was a prolouge, but are you going to make your chapters longer? Other than the shortness so far, good job.
Author's Response: Yes the oter chapters are longer, I just needed to get the prolouge out first!
Wow, this is very good. Normally I don't read anything that has anything remotely related to love letters and such, but I couldn't stop reading this! Nice job! =) I can't wait to read more.
Um...What happened to the story?
Author's Response: Sorry, slight technical difficulties. All fixed now, though.
This is so random; I absolutely love it...I seriously couldn't breathe for five minutes after reading this. You're...my hero. =D One thing, though: Those A/N's were getting a tad bit annoying...
Author's Response: I'm proud to know that my story does what it is intended to do (although not to the extent of not breathing...). Yeah, my comments can be annoying, huh?
XD That was great. It really made me laugh. And now to go find some chocolate....*starts tearing the house apart looking for some*
