    Fan Artist UpTheHill on Dramione, Erotic Art, and the Magic of Portraits

    Part of our mission at FAN/FIC Magazine is to highlight amazing fan creators and pull back the curtain on their creative processes. For our second interview, I talked to UpTheHill, an incredibly talented fan artist whose work is lighting up the Harry Potter fandom at upthehillart.tumblr.com. In the following interview, we discussed Dramione, graphic tablets, the magic of portraits, and how we’re all shameless trash. //

Héloïse and Abélard: Star-Crossed Lovers in the Real World

Flamboyant But Forgotten will be a regular column by contributor Rachel Cohen. In this column, Rachel will highlight some of the lesser-known historical figures whose backstories, personalities, and occupations make great fodder for creative fanfiction writing. It was Shakespeare who coined the now hackneyed “star-crossed lovers” in Romeo and Juliet.  The stars did not like those two, so both Romeo and Juliet died. //

    On September 1st, we held our very first Flash Fic Festival. Participants had 24 hours to create, write, and edit a ficlet based on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Although the spirit of the challenge was to build community and encourage writers, we promised to award our favourite fic with a beta-edit, a PDF compilation, and a lovely fan art postcard. //
