    Summary

    [CW: Tag Vortex may stare back.]

    Tagging! How many tags does your story need? How can you tell which ones will be useful? As a reader, how can you use them to find what you want, what you really really want? When you keysmash in the forest, does it make a sound?

    AO3's beautiful and ridiculously wrangled tags do more than most people expect. Behold the mysteries, rejoice in the synonyms, and optimize your search results. Welcome to the tag vortex.

    Summary


    GRYFFINDORS. Go up the marble staircase and left, and keep travelling in that general direction; you’ll want to be going towards your left, because Gryffindor Tower is on the easternmost side of the castle, and you’re coming from the north/north-west. Once you reach the second floor, you can take a short-cut! Concealed behind a tapestry is a narrow staircase to the upper floors...


    A guide for people writing fic set in Hoggy Warty Hogwarts, who want to know where everything is, a first-person walk-through, written as if a Prefect is handing out pamphlets to all the poor ickle firsties. ^_^’ 


    ( Includes a map I made, back before the new illustrated editions came out when we still had no official guide, based on JKR's. )

    ( UPDATE: now includes a rough map of Hogsmeade! )

    Map of Hogwarts + 'A Beginner's Guide To Hogwarts' by SheFlooLikeAMadman

    Written like a leaflet for new students it also includes two maps and several charts; with very useful information about the locations of many things on Hogwarts' grounds and in Hogsmeade and additional 'good to know about' info about them.

    Great writing reference, but also helpful for readers who like to visualise the layout while reading.
