Welcome to this little corner of the universe, dedicated to giving poor, neglected Harry Potter Gen fic the attention and readership it deserves.
Are you primarily a ship writer, but suddenly find yourself writing a non pairing specific piece and you don't have a community to share it with?
Would you like to maintain your friends locked journal, but still wish for your writing to find readership beyond the confines of your flist?
Well search no more!
All types of Harry Potter Gen Fic are welcome here. Character based pieces, plot or action based pieces, and friendship pieces are all appreciated and encouraged.
What do you mean by Gen Fic?
For the purposes of this community a Gen Fic is defined as any kind of fan fiction in which action and primary focus of the piece does not center around a romantic or sexual relationship.
Now this does not mean that a romantic relationship can't be present in your fiction. For example, Ron and Hermione can be a couple in a piece as long as their relationship is not the primary focus, and the action does not center around them getting together, being together, breaking up, or has one of them dwelling on unrequited feelings for the other.
