Today's New York Times describes how the US presidential race popped up in part of the "Potterverse," and vice versa:

the Romney campaign had not expected its banners to appear on FanFiction.net, whose users have seen thousands of “Romney for President” ads while using the site to write their own plots about their favorite fictional characters — or read the work of others, including pornographic scenes between Harry Potter and Hermione Granger.
Of course, given the amount of fictionalizing former governor Mitt Romney has done in his brief political career, and how it seems to be accelerating rapidly, this ad placement seems only appropriate.
