FANFIC FRIDAY: Back to School! – School AUs September


Hello fanfic readers!

September has come and posts about going back to school are flooding Tumblr. That’s why we have decided that our Fanfic Friday theme for this month will be school-related! That’s right, we are going to be offering you plenty of recaps having to do with School AUs (middle school, high school and college). Hopefully that will cheer up those not so happy to go back to school!

This past Tuesday, September 1st, many Potterheads celebrated the start of Hogwarts school year (among them, James S. Potter). In honor of all those wizards heading back to Hogwarts, we have collected 10 fanfics set in Hogwarts! Because we all know that a magic school is the best type of school there is. Have a great school year!
