The World Wide Web just happens to be home to an enormous selection of fansites wholly dedicated to the Harry Potter universe. So many of them have become hugely successful, due in part to J. K. Rowling's interest and the general amazingness of her books. Today we're looking at some of our absolute favorite HP fansites!
Mugglenet was created in 1999 by Emerson Spartz and has become the Place for the Harry Potter Fandom. With over 27 million visitors to date, it is without a doubt a great place to meet new HP lovers, discuss ideas, learn about the history, and keep up on news. On Mugglenet, you can learn everything from name origins to mistakes in the books, you can add to countless threads about thousands of HP-related topics, you can receive movie updates and pics, and you can write and read fanfiction. It's a wonderful thing, really.

Also huge among Harry Potter Internet fanatics is the concept of fanfiction--fan-written stories that branch off of the HP world, using JKR-created settings, characters, magic, etc. Here are some links to gigantic fanfic sites:
