Misused Homophones/near Homophones: your/you're, their/there/they're, lose/loose, definitely/defiantly (seriously, WTH). It won't stop me from reading a good fic, but you have no idea how happy it makes me when someone gets it right.
Epiphets: Ravens are birds, and cannot be used to describe a dark-haired character. Blond = male. Blonde = female. There is also nothing wrong with using the character's name.
Super Ukes: Calling them girls with penii is an insult to girls. Most girls aren't that weepy. And they at least have a semblance of a spine. Where did all the backbone go, people?
Character Bashing: Especially if it has no basis in canon. Ron/Hermione/Ginny/Dumbledore betraying Harry for money has NO BASIS in canon.
Gratuitous Japanese: I get that there are some things that cannot be translated; honorifics, when used correctly (there better be a good explanation if Sasuke ever uses 'chan' for Naruto) are welcome. Using 'nani' instead of 'what' is jarring, not clever.
Harem Fics: I don't know...most of the fics I've tried under this label tends to have super-macho men that's just so badass (kind of a jerk) their love interests don't mind sharing him so long as they get a piece of him. Maybe I'm oversensitive but it sounds a bit...sexist? Inverted Harems are no less annoying - all that melodrama, ugh. I have read and enjoyed fics with polygamy, but they tend to be equal from all sides rather than focused on a single character.
