The authors' works, including this project, were featured in an article in The Wall Street Journal discussing the growth in popularity of fandoms.In 2007, a web-based novel, James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing, was written by a computer animator named George Lippert.The book was written as a supplement to fill the void after Deathly Hallows, and received eventual approval from Rowling herself.
She called it "for the dangerously obsessive; my natural home." The third site of 2004 was Muggle Net, a web site featuring the latest news in the Potter world, among editorials, forums, and a podcast.
Rowling called the project "extraordinary" and "most inspirational", and paralleled its mission to "the values for which Dumbledore's Army fought in the books".
At one time, Warner Bros., which owns the rights to Harry Potter and its affiliates, tried to shut down the sites.
A well-known work of fan fiction is The Shoebox Project, created by two Live Journal users.
