Poll: What animagus form should Harry have in my story "Bed of Roses" Vote Now!
Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.
Ok, so I only read Harry Potter Fan fiction, and from that genre there are a bunch of things I like, and others I rather despise. Keep in mind that I put up with some of my dislikes given the fic is written well enough. Here's the list.
-Harry centric (all stories should be Harry centric, he's the main character, what's the point in reading about some other minor character's life... unless of course that information is listed in relation to Harry and what Harry's doing!)
-Dumbledore Bashing (Dumbledore's choices are sometimes WAY too fishy for him to be caring about Harry as much as he says. Though some pro-Dumbledore fics I have read were admittedly good)
-Hermione and Ron Bashing (both of them piss me off a lot in different ways. Hermione doesn't understand ppl and their feelings a lot, and Ron... well Ron is a JERK a lot of the time)
-H/Daphne Greengrass- I just like Harry with Slytherin girls who are cannon (Not Pansy though, she looks like a pug :) ). Especially with Tracey and Daphne because they don't really play a role in the books other than to fill the Slytherin girls dorms so there is a lot of wiggle room for creating their personalities.
-H/D- it's HOT!!
-H/OC- a lot of times its done really well, and fixes the problems that arise from doing other ships.
-Haven't seen it before, but I think, if Hermione had her priorities straightened out, that a Hermione/Neville ship would work out quite nicely
-Harry acting exactly like James (Harry is his own person, just because he looks like James doesn't mean he should act like him!)
-DARK!Harry- Harry's not dark or evil, get over it!
-Heir!Harry- when Harry is suddenly a pureblood heir, or heir of Gryffindor, or Merlin, it completely defeats the purpose. The whole idea is that Harry isn't any of that but he still manages to come out the hero!
-Evil Lily/James- sometimes I read it, but it's so sad! I like them being nice people!
-H/Hr- It's not going to happen, and why would you want it to happen?
-HP/LP- even weirder
-R/Hr- I know it's cannon, but that can't keep me from thoroughly despising that ship. It makes no sense, they are too different from each other (and Hermione needs someone slightly more intelligent)
Out of the Chamber: A story that starts at the end of second year and follows Harry as he decides to become more proactive about his life. Harry (hopefully) won't become perfect in this story, but he will realize that he needs to work harder and can't just rely on luck to solve his problems. In addition to working harder Harry will also make new friends and become more social both within Gryffindor and with other classmates as well. As Harry gets older he will eventually have some romantic relationships as well, though romance is not the intended focus of the story. I will try to keep things loosely to cannon, but this is an AU story.
