Share This article is not part of the Harry Potter universe. This article covers a subject that is part of the real world, and thus should not be taken as a part of the Harry Potter universe. The Draco Trilogy is a Draco-centric epic written and posted in instalments by Cassandra Clare over a period of six years, consisting three novel-length stories: Draco Dormiens, Draco Sinister, and Draco Veritas.
In the beginning there is a love triangle where both Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter are interested in Hermione Granger. The trilogy contributed to the popularisation of Fanon Draco, called "Leather Pants Draco" after a famous scene in Draco Sinister where Draco ends up looking good in incredibly tight leather pants.
Contents [ show ] Author Judith Rumelt, more commonly known as Cassandra Clare, is the author of many Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings fanfictions, including the Draco trilogy, notable for a plagiarism controversy. Her fanfictions were taken down after Clare began her published career with The City of Bones.
As of today, she continues to write the Shadowhunters Chronicles, and plans to write the Magisterium series with Holly Black. Draco Dormiens "When an accident in Potions class turns Harry into Draco and Draco into Harry, each is trapped playing the part of the other. Romance, mistaken identities, Really Cunning Plans, evil bake sales, a love triangle, and snogs galore.
Net in August It is the shortest novel in the series by far, totaling roughly 70, words. The story is an AU, diverging from canon after Goblet of Fire. The need to keep this a secret, the even greater need to find an antidote, and a love triangle where both Draco and Harry are interested in Hermione, power the plot of the novel.
Draco Sinister "When Hermione is kidnapped, Harry and Draco must team up to rescue her from a thousand-year-old evil that threatens the entire wizarding world. Cursed demon swords, love potions, time travel, dementors, flying dragons, Draco wears leather, and everybody dies at least once. Net in late It only appeared online in its entirety for about two weeks before Clare took down her fanfiction in order to embark on her profic career.
Plagiarism controversy The story first became the subject of major controversy when one reader identified an extensive sequences of action, description and dialogue from Draco Sinister, Chapter 9 as having been lifted from The Hidden Land, an out-of-print fantasy novel by Pamela Dean.
Though this was sufficient to get Clare banned from Fanfiction. Two characters might have a lengthy conversation which Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans will recognise as dialogue from the show, or Harry might answer a question with the words of a character from Babylon 5. Readers would guess which parts were quoted and what the source was, they would suggest lines to include from different sources that would fit this or that character, and there were unofficial "quote-nabbing contests" with other fanfic writers.
However, in spite of the relative candidness of these practises, they contained huge potential for trouble because they relied heavily on context to be understood. Another major issue, related to the use of pop culture dialogue, was that Cassandra Clare reproduced concepts, rough scenes, descriptive phrases and dialogue from several fantasy novels. Such borrowings were often not cited, or cited in such a way as to make the amount of borrowed text appear far less extensive than it actually was.
Notes and references.

Cassandra Clare and the Chamber of Not-So-Secret Plagiarizing
Author Appeal : The female characters are always excited whenever they get to wear old-fashioned Pimped Out Dresses which are thoroughly described —sometimes enough to temporarily overshadow in their minds the life-threatening circumstances they are in. The girls also tend to think a lot about how the boys in their lives smell differently. Apparently this is important in weighing their relative attractiveness—and no, none of them seem to actually smell bad. Beautiful All Along : Hermione.
They were still Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Draco, but with her own spin on the personalities. What the author of this post was saying was that Cassandra took those spins in personality of her fanfiction, and put them into the personalities of her original characters in TMI. But I agree with you whole-heartedly. I adore the series and all that it has to offer. November 22, at am said: Totally true!
