Reviews for Harry Potter and the Overdone Plot Devices
Veronique Sarisandeul chapter 6 . 10/24/2012
Despite the fact that this is an incredably amusing parody, it only managed to hold my interest for about five and a half pages longer than the fics it makes fun of. Sorry.

I actually see stuff like this when sirius and James are supposedly Harry winds up going to hottopic and getting pericings and wearing skinny jeans and converse when he gos back to the past going to the store but Im not even sure hottopic exists in Britain let alone Surrey.
eggplantpocky chapter 11 . 10/1/2012
"Even though I don't love you, I still might shag you so that my already emotionally screwed up kid can learn about his true parentage when he turns sixteen…..No, but we mustn't!" She makes a few token protests so we don't think she's a complete slut, but we all know they're going to shag anyway.

This. There are no words for this. It also happens a lot, the token protests, usually with Hermione cheating on Ron with Draco or something.

P.S. In the canon, they mentioned that Snape did love Lily, but it was never stated/supported that their relationship was more than platonic. /flails

"...she could still feel his cool, cold, frigid, icy, chilled eyes on her."

I was practically dying by the end of this sentence. xD
ThePhoenix chapter 7 . 8/27/2012
Wow. This is really brilliant. I just about pissed myself laughing. :)

I would suggest a DracoxOC fanfiction? 'Fourth member of the golden trio?' I think that's just about as cliche as you can get. :)
HonorLove chapter 16 . 8/17/2012
This was absolutely _wonderful_! About the only correction-suggestion I have is (back in one of the Hermione chapters-I think it was the Hermione/Draco one) is that it's not "luuuuuuuv", it's "luuuuurv", b/c every 13 year-old fanfiction writer knows love is spelled with an "r". And if you're still taking suggestions (doubtful, but one can hope), there's always the "Harry in Azkaban" genre!
jennamarie chapter 16 . 8/17/2012
I was reading this at work... Probably not the best idea, I think I hurt myself laughing at a few parts... Anyways, I have a suggestion or two for future parodies. I think you need a creature fic, where Harry has a sixteenth/seventeenth birthday/sex and turns into some magical creature. The most common choices seem to be veela or elf, I choose a crumple-horned snorkax myself. Or one with dark!Harry/dark!Hermione/dark!Ron becoming the new Dark Lord/ Dark Lord's apprentice/ Dark Lord's love interest.
Sadly tho, It's been a long time since this was updated, so you've probably left this fun fic behind you... But, here's hoping!
Namara-Ashina chapter 16 . 8/15/2012
oh . . . . dear . . . . . god . . . . . it's sooooooo bad XD i don't think i've stopped laughing since i started reading this XD it's just so . . . . so . . . . . horrible in the best possible way XD
on the off chance you come back to this, there's always the de-aging fics (either Harry or Snape usually), harem fics, peggy sue fics, travelling to an alternate dimension where things are just a little bit different fics, everyone thinks Harry's twin is the boy-who-lived fics, Harry in Azkaban fics, Harry is a girl fics and sorted into another house fics
Happyfruit392 chapter 3 . 8/10/2012
So far this hits the issue right on. The only two things I would point out are that you unnecessarily capitalize the verbs in dialogues, like "Bla bla bla," Said Harry. Also, I don't think Hogwarts should have an apostrophe. Then again, you might be just doing that to parody some writers.
Guest chapter 5 . 8/7/2012
"Thou must snog!"

Sara Darkotter chapter 16 . 7/26/2012
Wow, it's been forever since you updated, but I'm gonna ask anyway...
Are you ever going to update? I haven't read a good parody like this in forever!

Also, things to parody, in case you're out of ideas:
-Veela!Anyone else
-Any number of NextGen pairings which for some odd reasons are cousin-cest and the author doesn't seem to care
-The Mary-Weresue in the Marauder Era so Remus has someone who "understands him" (Also often a transfer student...)
-Fics involving Luna: where people overdo her looniness.
Cesca619 chapter 11 . 7/25/2012
I'd say it is a sarcasm as part of this chapter did become canon after DH:P
Cesca619 chapter 10 . 7/25/2012
"Weasley, you blinked! One thousand points from Gryffindor." He snaps. "And one thousand points to Slytherin for not blinking Malfoy."

Malfoy blinks.

OMG, that's far too hilarious! I am dying laughing because of this! Blame on you!
Proper the Incredible chapter 16 . 7/10/2012
anonjune chapter 16 . 5/4/2012
LOL. This fic raised the quality of fics I could tolerate.
