Finding a harry potter fic.

Postby ckosacranoid » Wed Jun 05, 2019 1:46 pm

I have gone though my list of fav stories on fanfic met under the name cko2 and I can not for the life of me find a harry potter story that I Know I had at one point.
The story was with a new defence teacher that used a pair of old school flint lock pistols and in the end of the story he dies and ron ends up with the guns and become a gunslinger mage who ends up on the outs with his family because of his new outlook and life. I know it was a basic harry potter story and not a cross i think but nothing i found seems to make sence.

I've tried but looking for a Harry Potter fic is a lot harder than Ranma. On Fanfic.net alone, not including crossovers there are 608K HP fics, it's massively popular and this is not a story I have ever read. Sorry.

Not something i recognise. Also, there's always some risk that it's been taken down, either by the site for more or usually LESS valid reasons, or more commonly, by the author.
Sadly, it's extremely hard to figure out if it's been taken down.

There's an archive of the whole ffn that you can try search in, but don't bother unless you have the name of either author or story, because it contains literally EVERYTHING and some of the zipfiles takes insanely much time to unpack even with a high performance system like mine, archive image from 2016:
https://archive.org/download/fanfictiondotnet_repack

I was lucky at least with the archive, i found the story i knew should exist, could even find my old review of it, but the story was gone and the author seems to pretend it never existed, despite being his best story so far.

I can't help with this specific fic search as I haven't read the story in question. I can however say that there are some Yahoo Groups dedicated to HP fic searches. Most have slowed down in recent years, but still somewhat active.
@Jasonjkay, if you are having trouble with your own HP searches, try posting to one of them. When I'm looking for an HP fic, I usually pick one at random unless I know it contains a lemon scene, in which case I default to Borgin and Burkes.
I generally only ask about Ranma or Sailor Moon fics here.

Flourish and Blots
This one is part of a pair, and is primarily for G & PG-13 searches. If in doubt, use the other one.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/flourish_and_blots/

Borgin and Burkes
This one is part of a pair, and allows the more mature rated stories (R & nc-17). The other group is if you want to avoid smut stories.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/borgin_and_burkes/


HPstoryfinders
Looking for the Harry/Draco novel? Or that Snape/Hermione story that made you cry? Or even that Weasley twins one that was really good? Just can't remember where to find it? Post on this list and ask, someone just might know where it is. Gen, het, and slash are allowed. They're all equal as far as anyone should be concerned.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hpstoryfinders/

(the next is NOT a duplicate, just almost the same name)

HP_Storyfinders
Want to find that story you read, so you can read it again? Looking for a specific type of story? Then this is the list for you! If you can describe it, chances are one or more of the other members can find it if you are ready to offer your help in return by answering requests!
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HP_Storyfinders/


http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HPfind-a-fic/
Remember that chaste little kiss that gave you sweet dreams for a week? Or the time Snape confiscated a HP/SS fanfic in class? Or how about that satisfying moment when Lucius finally bottomed? -- if you know it's out there, but you don't know where: HP find-a-fic. For all your fanfiction needs. This is the most efficient Harry Potter fic finder on the net! Help us maintain the excellent service by helping to promote the group!

Harry Potter Recommendations & Links
Hey, are you obsessed with Harry Potter? Do you like fan fiction? Than this is the group for you! Here you can post and discuss anything dealing with Harry Potter. Any fiction or link goes, regardless of type or rating.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Harry_Pot ... s_N_Links/

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/pointme/info
A search group for Harry Potter (and other) fanfiction.
Please note, this group is restricted as some of the stories may be rated M.


HP-RECS
An original group dedicated to making it easier for avid Harry Potter fanfiction readers and writers to give and recieve what's new and old in fantastic hp recommendations. All slash (as we are a slash-oriented [yaoi] group), het and gen is welcomed!
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hp-recs/

There is also a HP Fic search thread on The Fanfiction Forum.
https://thefanfictionforum.net/xenforo/ ... hes.12000/
[hr] * * * [/hr]
I receive e-mail alerts from all of them except "HP-RECS" since I don't like yaoi. I know it's hypocritical but I don't mind yuri.
I'd post to the general fic search thread on SpaceBattles. Sufficient Velocity, or Questionable Questing before looking for an HP fic here,

That said, if anybody does know which fic the OP wants, PLEASE post the answer. Don't leave us hanging. Stuff like this back on Usenet is how I got interested in seeking out half the anime I watched 15-20 years ago. Crossover stories and fic searches are still a way for me to find new series that catch my interest to this day.

You guys all wanted to know if I ever found this story. The above story I found last night by chance about the gunslinger. It was one of the first set of potter piece I had saved and was going though saved stuff and random grab on it and it turned out to be the story after two years.

And once more, random chance beats proper organisation! :wink: :P :mrgreen:
