experiences at Hogwarts and then the first day that Harry and Ginny have without Albus. Even though it will not give us a view into their entire life, I think that if I construct it right, it will give my reader a taste of what they don’t have. I think that in my sample I did a good job of getting my initial ideas on the table and get the creative process rolling by starting to establish my characters and their roles amongst each other. My purpose in writing this is to give readers what they do not have. As an extreme Harry Potter fan, I know I was not satisfied with the ending that Rowling provided us with and giving a little extra something would appeal to readers I believe. My audience would be anyone who has grown through the books as they have grown up and have read through all the books to understand references and dynamics.

Julia Lesses October 11, 2011 4) As a reader would this type of fan fiction be of interest to you? 5) Would this serve as a nice Segway into my next paper and finally my research paper? 6) Should I focus on the kids at school and away from home or should I more focus on Harry and Ginny at home with Rose? Sample: Albus leans out the window, and watches his father, mother and younger sister waving him goodbye as the Hogwarts Express moves out of platform 9 ¾. He was still sitting on his knees, looking out of his window until the last glimpse of his family was out of sight. He turns around and settles into his seat in his compartment on the Hogwarts Express. Across from him sits his older brother, James and his cousin, Rose. James, already having gone to and from Hogwarts on the Hogwarts Express was already extremely comfortable and seemed to have already forgotten his family in the distance. He had the compartment door open and the compartment quickly infiltrated with his friends. Albus and Rose look at each other mirroring the same nervous face as new faces come into the compartment. Down the corridor Albus can hear the Honeydukes Express trolly making it’s way through the crowds of excited students. James’ friend Thomas asks Rose what her name is and she quietly answers with a “…err umm Rose..”. James, hearing this timid response from Rose snickers with his friend Daniel. Rose nudges him and looks at Albus and widens her eyes. Albus sits in silence and thinks about his mother, father and his sister Lily. He thinks about what they’ll be doing after this and feels a sense of jealousy when he imagines they would be going to breakfast with his Uncle Ron, Aunt Hermione and his cousin Hugo. Albus had always been the quieter and less outgoing sibling, much like his father when he had first arrived on the Hogwarts Express. e Julia-From Lauren Elder What you do well: I think you’ve chosen a great fan fiction topic to show family dynamics. Your use of the present tense is really interesting stylistically. I think that the way the siblings interact is realistic.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
