Fandom: Harry Potter

This is (and probably always will be, given the nature of Harry Potter fandom) a work in progress. I'll be adding to it and updating it over time.

I'm no longer actively maintaining this list of Harry Potter communities; it was last updated in 2009. Comments on this post are now frozen.

newbieguide is closed to new entries, so I can't turn the list over to anyone else here. If anyone would like to maintain a similar list elsewhere, and would like the HTML code for the list below as a starting point, email me at penknifewrites [at] aol.com; I'd be happy to pass it along.



Harry Potter fandom on LiveJournal is huge. There are hundreds of communities devoted to nearly every possible pairing, genre, and fan activity. This post lists some of the biggest and most active Harry Potter communities on LiveJournal, and the communities listed under "COMMUNITY FINDING AND PROMOTION" should help you find others.

The Harry Potter books and movies have many young fans, so it's important to note that many of these communities contain adult (sexually explicit) content. Some restrict membership to adults only. Please read the user information for communities carefully when deciding which communities to read or join.
