There was also a good deal of controversy in fandom when the author was blacklisted from FanfictionDotNet for [[{{Plagiarism}} plagiarizing]] lengthy passages from a Creator/PamelaDean series without attribution (and, apparently, lying about having permission to use the passages in her fanfiction, although she did sort of get permission after she was caught). This is often confused with the series using a large amount of quotes and scenes from TV series (including ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'') and several published works, which were credited at the end of each chapter. Avocado, the person who first discovered and reported the Pamela Dean plagiarism, wrote [[http://www.journalfen.net/community/bad_penny/8985.html#cutid1 here]] a recount of the plagiarism debacle.

** It should be noted that the same gag was used in an episode of {{Friends}}.
*** Knowing Cassie, ''Friends'' [[{{Plagiarism}} probably used the same wording too]].



* DancesAndBalls - Seem to happen a lot, including the the [[FandomSpecificPlot usual and inexplicable restaging of the Yule Ball]], although this series may be the TropeMaker there (well, aside fom ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'', obviously).
** The weirdest instance of this: a formal ball is thrown for Harry's seventeenth birthday party in ''Draco Sinister''. Because Harry would have enjoyed that ''[[SarcasmMode way]]'' more than the low-key seventeenth birthday party he later had with the Weasleys in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]''. And whose idea was this? Sirius's! Because it's so in character for Sirius Black to throw a Creator/JaneAusten ball to usher his godson into wizarding adulthood.

* FunctionalMagic: Obviously present in ([[TransplantedCharacterFic most]]) ''Harry Potter'' fanfics, but notable here due to Cassie being... rather bad at following the [[MagicAIsMagicA internal logic]] of the PotterVerse. For example, Salazar Slytherin is depicted as having gotten his BlackMagic powers from the demons of hell, while the books explain that Dark Magic is fueled by hatred, not infernal forces. This can be excused since the explanation for dark magic was written after the Trilogy had already ended. Making Draco The Heir of Slytherin, which directly contradicts nearly all of book two, has no such excuse.
** Simply put, Cassie was pretty good about following her own rules (God knows the thing ran long enough for her to develop them), but not Rowling's. And as it went along, she tended to pick up [[ChekhovsGun guns]] from her own [[ChekhovsArmoury armoury]] rather than from the actual ''Potter'' books. Basically, she tore Rowling's mythology down to its foundation and then cheerfully built her own mythology over it.

* InformedAbility - We're told that Draco can keep his emotions in check at all times, but he rarely does.

The Draco Trilogy was an epic ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' FanFic series written by the BigNameFan Cassandra Claire, now a published author of the ''Literature/MortalInstruments'' series under the name of [[Creator/CassandraClare Cassandra]] ''Clare''. It used many of the same tropes found in ''Mortal Instruments'', and deviated wildly from Harry Potter {{canon}} because it was begun before the fifth book was released. The series consisted of three novel-length fanfics: ''Draco Dormiens'', ''Draco Sinister'' and ''Draco Veritas''. It began with a standard FreakyFridayFlip plot and developed into a complicated tale involving all sorts of magical inheritance, the four founders of Hogwarts and more.

* FandomSpecificPlot - As noted above, the Yule Ball plot, although with the brilliant subversion that absolutely nothing happens except for pointless drama involving Draco and Ginny not getting together for the twelfth time. Oh, the angst! Cassie really has the wrong idea about the Yule Ball. First of all, ''it's part of the Triwizard Tournament and not an annual event''. In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire Goblet of Fire]]'', the Yule Ball is important enough to be attended by Ministry officials and have the most popular wizarding band provide the music. In the Cassie Verse, the Yule Ball is basically a high school prom ''and'' it's [[PartySchedulingGambit trumped]] by something called the Seventh Year Pub Crawl, causing seventh years to actually regard the Yule Ball as beneath them. In ''Goblet'', the ball takes place on Christmas Day with Harry specially being amazed how many people were staying over break so they could attend. Cassie conveniently has it take place ''weeks'' before Christmas break.
