I am sure you all know who Harry Potter is. The iconic series written by J.K. Rowling is about a wizard-in-training who joins the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, makes friends and battles enemies during his coming of age story while he struggles against the forces of evil that threaten to end his world.
But can an AI writer make up Harry Potter fan fiction? Today we find out! We used my favorite AI writing tool ShortlyAI to try to write a Harry Potter fan fiction around the subject of Quidditch. Here are the results 🙂
What AI Writer Did I Use for this Test?
I chose to use ShortlyAI because, for me, it is simply the best on the market. I have tried many AI writing tools and ShortlyAI has had by far the best output for me. When I say many, I mean this many!! Conversion.AI, Niche$$$, Writesonic, Kafkai, ContentBot.ai, GoCopy and ContentVillian.
All of these services tell you the same thing, that they can help you write unique and readable AI written content quickly. But, for me, only ShortlyAI does this consistently (trust me, I have done a lot of testing!!).
Also, ShortlyAI is the only writing tool that has the ‘write for me’ function. You simply use the built-in editor app to start writing and at any point click the ‘write for me’ button to let the AI write for you. Hopefully, this test today will show you how awesome this feature is.
This is how I set everything up. I simply opened up the ShortlyAI editing application and typed the following into the article brief section:
‘This will be a fan fiction story based around the fantasy world of Harry Potter. This story will talk about how Harry Potter turned into a professional Quidditch player.’
I then started the fan fiction by writing ‘Harry Potter had played Quidditch a few times before,’ so I am not really giving the AI much to work with, just the basic premise behind the fan fiction story (that Harry Potter turns into a pro Quidditch player).
This was the result:
This is the raw output from clicking the ‘write for me’ button until the app told me it was the end of the story. I have done no editing of the output at all. Here is an image showing the finished story in the editor app in ShortlyAI:
Am I Happy with The Results?
This fan fiction story was achieved by giving the ShortlyAI writer some basic information and half a line of text, so I am blown away with the end result. Is this going to win any awards……no! Is it a complete and done fan fiction…..no! But the fact that this AI was able to come up with the basic idea of a Harry Potter fan fiction story all by itself is pretty amazing to me.
There is one other famous example of someone trying to write a fan fiction using AI, and they did that by specifically training an AI first on seven of the books in the Harry Potter Series. It’s impressive that ShortlyAI can come up with something so coherent with little to no training done to the AI algorithm.
What Does Mean for You?
If you are a content creator in need of writing services, you might want to go through a few different AI writing tools. I personally used them all and finally found one that could write things like this that I want.
Is it perfect? Nope, not even close. Is it the best? At this point in time, surprisingly, it is! Of course, usually I will edit the outputs or ask the AI to regenerate if it writes anything incoherent (another awesome feature in ShortlyAI). But you get the idea!
At this point in time, the writing AI cannot write full stories or articles, but works great as an AI writing assistant. Using such a tool, the amount of writing you can do in a day increases massively!
If you want to try out Shortly AI for yourself, head over to their pricing page on their website, or sign up for a free trial where you can test out some of their writing outputs for yourself!
And If You Are Still in Doubt…..
Maybe some of you are scoffing and asking why I didn’t use another tool… well this part is for you. I am yet to find another AI Writing tool with the seamless ‘write for me’ function like in ShortlyAI, so I only had two options. I turned to Writesonic, another highly rated AI writing tool and asked it to write a full article on the topic of Harry Potter fan fiction. And for clarity, I will also ask it to write a blog intro on the topic, to see if it can be more coherent when doing shorter bursts.
The Full AI Blog Writing Tool: WriteSonic
Writesonic offers the ability to come up with a full AI written blog post, so I used the same inputs as above to get it to generate a similar Harry Potter fan fiction. This is the result.
The problem here is that Writesonic doesn’t have a story writing service, so you can see that the article post tool can’t really write a story. But if we only think about how coherent the text is, you can clearly see that the Writesonic raw output requires much more tweaking than what we got from ShortlyAI. The flow is all over the place, for a start 🙂
The WriteSonic Blog Intro Tool
Using the same input as used with ShortlyAI, I got the following blog intro output from the Writesonic blog intro tool.
Granted, this is a bit more coherent. The problem is when you only have a blog intro tool it can be tricky to piece together these shorter paragraphs into a full-blown fan fiction story.
Hopefully, this quick comparison helps you see how on point the ShortlyAI tool is! After seeing the output above, if you are interested in Writesonic as well (I suppose it is one of the few AI writers to let you do full articles) you can check out their official page by using the button below.
