1. Introduction to Mid Fortune
Yes, Miss Fortune was meant to be an AD Carry. But I like playing champs out of meta. Check out my JungleCrank guide and you'll see exactly what I mean (That's following the meta rather, Blitzcrank was made to be a melee fighter). Anyway, this guide will be on AP Mid Fortune! You'll start wondering if I am a troll, but check this out: 0.05 AP ratio on Impure Shots (It may not seem like much, but she can stack it really fast.), 0.8 AP ratio on Make It Rain, and 0.2 AP ratio on Bullet Time (Which is actually a LOT more than it is) make her a viable choice. But please, do not play her in ranked, as with all of my guides (already published and soon-to-come) play her only in normals until you get familiar with her. Even then, don't bother.
2. Pros and Cons of Mid Fortune
a) Amazing Aoe Ult
b) Great early level burst
c) Strut allows dodging skill shots that much easier
a) Her main non-ult ability, Make It Rain, has a long cooldown
b) Hard to trade in lane safely
c) One smart Flash can dodge all of MF's main damage

8. Skill Combos
a) Quick early burst combo: Autoattack - Double Up - Autoattack (Double Up resets your autoattack timer)
b) Ranged kill combo: Make It Rain - Bullet Time
c) All-in combo: Make It Rain - Ignite - Impure Shots + Autoattacks + Double Up - Bullet Time
- Be sure to be always moving between your autoattacks to dodge skill shots!
9. Early Lane Phase
At this time, your main goal is to farm up for items. However, at level 1, you can use the AA-Q-AA combo to harass your enemy effectively. Be sure to time it right and retreat quickly so you don't take too much minion damage. If you are up against a melee champion, effective autoattack harassing will put them behind farm. If you packed AD runes, abuse the additional 9~15 AD to your benefit. After putting 2+ points into Make It Rain, you can harass a bit with it as long as you aren't spamming it and getting yourself low on mana. At level 6, you can try to roam or go for a kill with Bullet Time. If you at least made them burn flash, it is definitely worth it.
10. Mid Game
11. Late Game
Your ult will deal massive AOE damage to the whole team. Be sure to only fight when your ultimate is up, or else you will deal almost to no damage unless you get in close range. A good positioned Bullet Time has the power to grant you victory.
12. Team Fights
Team fighting as Miss Fortune is really simple. Position. Ult. Use your Make It Rain in advance or after the ult channel to slow any threats coming toward you and/or your AD Carry. With W's attack speed bonus, the passive magic damage, Spellsword, Lich Bane, your autoattacks will hurt a fair bit. Kite to your full abilities and deal as much damage as possible without dying.
13. Synergizing Champions
It is a known fact that AOE ults synergize well with pretty much anything. But for Miss Fortune, AOE CC is extremely important as they can hold an entire team in place for the full duration of Bullet Time. I'm pretty sure how destructive Katarina's Death Lotus can be when fully channeled. Similarily, Bullet Time offers the same luxury.
Few examples: Kennen, Amumu, Sona, Malphite, etc.
14. Closing Comments
I do feel that my guide is suited to the very obvious and best-case scenarios, and not all games will turn out the same exact way you wanted it to. Regardless, have fun with AP Mid Fortune in your games, trust me she works better than you would think.
