Fiction Alley is an archive for Harry Potter fan fiction that was created by Heidi Tandy, Flourish Klink, and others.

FictionAlley was formed in the summer of 2001 to be a "community in which no person would be unreasonably censored or senselessly banned."

While it was officially launched July 22, 2001, its Yahoo Group FictionAlleyWriters and Artists began on July 6, 2001. See Timeline for some other more specific dates.

The archive originated out of Schnoogle, a site that was created by Heidi Tandy and Cassandra Claire.

FictionAlley, a Harry Potter fanfiction, fanart, and essay archive, is being imported to the Archive of Our Own as a separate, searchable collection through the Open Doors project.

We'd love it if fans could help us preserve the story of FictionAlley on Fanlore. If you're new to wiki editing, no worries! Check out the new visitors portal or ask the Fanlore Gardeners for tips.
