Poll: What do you think about my fic, 'A Thirst to Prove Himself ' so far? Vote Now!
Author has written 41 stories for Harry Potter.
Hello, I go by Bones, no reason to say my real name...
MUST REMIND SELF TO WRITE HARRY/FLEUR BECAUSE IT SOUNDS GOOD ON PAPER. LOL.
Bootcamps: 1/300 with 150 more that could be on the way.
As of 8/26/2011 I will work on a Remus/Tonks fic for that particular story that I had in mind when I made that poll all them weeks ago.
12/19/2012: For the 'Snarry Marriage Law' poll since the side couples most voted for happen to be the ones I've planned out for 'a Snarry marriage law' fanfic in the future I'm sticking with the original side couples I had planned which are: Draco/Hermione, Albus/Gellert, Voldemort/Bellatrix.
However the couples that people have voted for the most I will use in other Snarry fanfic so it's not completely ruled out. All of these are honorable mentions: Sanguini/Luna, Lucius/Narcissa, Scorpius/Rose, Ron/Cho, Rabastan/Andromeda, Neville/Lily Luna, Daphne/Theo and Blaise/Tracey.

The couples that don't change: Lee/Angelina, OC/Alicia Spinnet, Bill/Fleur, Percy/Audrey, Remus/Tonks, Roxanne Jordan/OC Thomas, Marvin Zabini/OC Thomas
Next gen hints in the Epilogue of DH don't apply at all to my headcanon so bear this in mind.
Universe 1. Harry had three kids from Ginny and Hermione has a kid from Ron before the two wind up together. Harry's children retain their names from canon but are slightly older due to the fact Ginny was pregnant when she turned 13. Hermione was pregnant when she was 14 and had Arnold Weasley named after her uncle who is the son of Ron however not long afterwards she's obliviated. Rose is Ron's youngest daughter having been born while he was 16 with his future wife. Harry's father is Severus Snape. Remus and Tonks have a son before she dies and Remus winds up with Narcissa. Teddy happens to be much younger than Harry's children and is paired with Lydia. Bill and Fleur survive and their daughter attends beaubeatons eventually winding up with Jacques Badeaux. Draco and Luna have two kids, Leonard and Michael. Amelia and Sirius have a daughter after the war. Fred dies. Hermione's family divorced at a young age and Hermione has a sister named Jessica. David and Jane Granger are her parents and both are dentists in Universe 2-5 as well.
Universe 2. Harry and Hermione have two kids: Emma and Daniel Potter. Ron had two children: Rose like the first universe and Austin named after a relative of Ron's girlfriend. Snape has a daughter that he illegally created after a brief hookup with a sterile woman. Remus hooks up with Narcissa instead of Tonks but they can't have kids. Draco's headcanon with Luna is pretty much the same as Universe 1. Sirius dies at the end of book 3 and Harry discovers he has a son. Fred and George both have kids.
Universe 3. Harry and Ginny don't have any kids because Ginny is sterile. Since Snape and Hermione don't want kids they give up their two sons and daughter to Harry and Ginny to be adopted. Ron much like Universe 3 names his child, Austin. Draco had a kid with Astoria much like the canon universe. Sirius hooks up with Rosemerta and doesn't have kids. George has no kids and Fred has 2 kids, Olga and Jacob. Remus happily marries Tonks and has a kid.
Universe 4. Harry and Ginny have three kids: James Rubeus Severus Potter, William Arthur Sirius Potter and Lily Luna Potter. William is named after a distant uncle of Harry's. Ron has two children with his wife: Rose and Arthur Weasley, Arthur being named after his father. Arthur dies and Harry happens to be more closer to Arthur in this universe. Draco has an affair with Astoria after hooking up with Hermione having a son named Scorpius. Andromeda is Hermione's child and Draco's youngest child. Snape has a daughter with a similar back story as in Universe 2. Luna hooks up with Rolf before breaking it off and hooking up with Charlie when she turns 36. Fred and George are single. Remus's dies.
Universe 5. Harry and Hermione have a miscarriage and she is pregnant with Harry's child. Hermione has an affair with Charlie kept secret until their son's birth. After Charlie dies, Hermione has an affair with Draco whose married to Astoria and already had Scorpius. Harry hooks up with Ginny and has three kids with the same names as Universe 4. Snape's daughter once again has the same back story as in Universe 2 and 4. Both Fred and George are dead. Remus happily marries Tonks and has a kid. Remus' headcanon is similar to Universe 1.
Another fascinating fact: Most people who voted on my poll seem to like Dark Harry the best and prefer a submissive Harry over a dominant one. Is this important? It might be...wink.
Another interesting fact: Duster and Kumatora from Mother 3 seem to look alot like Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks from HP :D
In regards to 'A Thirst to Prove Himself' (Edit: 3/16/14):
This story is on a temporary hiatus.
I've decided to rewrite it because I'm dissatisfied with it and depending on the feedback will either scrap some of the plot entirely or do a spinoff.
After that I'm going to be finished with it for the time being. If I do intend on posting the rest of the books it'll be out of order and at a later date.
To answer some questions about 'A Brush With Trouble':
A. Regarding pairings: A reviewer seemed to be implying that this story is going to wind up Harry/Parvati/Padma harem fic. I'm being clear about this now the answer is no as I specifically would warn for that in the first chapter. Harry isn't going to wind up with Parvati or Padma for three reasons:
1. A romance between those two girls at this point would hinder the development of the main character OCs that move the story along.
2. It's overdone and I don't want a harem centric fic. I want a fic centred on characters.
3. The story isn't just centred on romance, it's also an action/adventure. A harem at this point would get in the way of my plot.
B. On this same note however if that is a veiled request for Harry/Parvati/Padma I can write a fanfic with that pairing. :D
"I, dem bones have challenged myself! I'm proud to be a part of the HPFC forum."
The fandom that matters right now: Harry Potter. I finally got around to fixing the list.
Top three favourite het pairings:
1. Snanger (I changed it, but it still counts as my hated pairing because I hated it before I had to write one. So there.)
2. Snily: SS/LE. This only takes second place because there isn't enough fanfic about any mutual romance between these two. It's like everyone likes one-sided Snily.*sad face*
3. H/G and H/HR tied for third.
Top 3 SLASH pairings.
1. Severus/Harry OTP
Call me strange call me twisted but it's awfully strange that their patronuses match.
Top 5 favourite Femmeslash pairings:
My OT3 is Harry/Hermione/Luna.
Weirdest pairings that I've ever read:
1. Hagrid/Hedwig (This one scarred me for life.)
3. Snape/Giant Squid
6. Harry/Peter...yes that's Pettigrew. FYI, it was a very good fic. ;D
8. Snape/Umbridge--I've loved Snumbridge before I seen the FF but there's one I remember loving to read.
9. Snape/Trelawney--I also adored this one. It's not really as weird as I thought it would be.
Pairings that I hate to read:
Harry/Female character--Especially when it can be summarised as the following: Cliche plot device to get preferred woman with Harry, Bashing all non-favorite characters, Over emphasis of Harry's super powers if he gets any, Harry and woman character are reduced to fluff magnets with no conflict in their lives.
(So to put it bluntly if H/HR is clearly written like a H/G with all the fluff, super powers and bashing it's not any better than an H/G fanfic. It doesn't make H/HR any better unless there's a mass of fans who think Harry would look better shagging a brunette/coughEmma'sHermionecough. Not that there's a problem with that. wink.)
Dominant male character/I allow everyone to kick my butt! Harry and I'm talking about Seme! and Uke! Tropes that ruin the complete makeup of characters.
Ron/Hermione--It's just like reading a bad H/G or a love/hate fic. I'm sorry but there was more potential for one of those with Hermione and a certain pureblood. I'm sorry but the blatancy of this couple in the books is annoying to me. Some say Hermione deserves better but I say, RON DESERVES BETTER because I've never seen such an arrogant self absorbed nag in my life. Don't believe me?
It's one of the reasons why I first hated Harry/Hermione. Countless times Hermione and Harry preach that they see each other as brother and sister. Yet Hermione takes away Harry's attention when he clearly had a date with Cho. She hugs him, Harry does nothing about it so naïve to Hermione's affections even when he clearly dislikes it. Hermione is clearly crushing on him and how do I know this? Well she doesn't exactly tell Ron that she wants to date him by the end of fifth year and clearly Ron thought at the time that Hermione wasn't interested. Then lo and behold, 'Jealous Hermione' appears. 'I had an interest in you how dare you go out with Lavender'. She didn't even say that she had a crush on Ron neither did she tell him exactly why she was upset, it's clearly obvious that she has a crush on Ron throughout the books, Ron was oblivious to it and it's understandable she didn't exactly come clean about it yet it seemed she expected him to guess that she liked him. Then she turns around and makes a big spectacle about it like a whiny child.
With the way she's always so subtle with her affections it's clear to me that she liked Harry before that.
An excerpt from DH proves that: "I have seen your heart, and it is mine. I have seen your dreams, Ronald Weasley, and I have seen your fears. All you desire is possible, but all that you dread is also possible... Least loved, always, by the mother who craved a daughter . . . Least loved, now, by the girl who prefers your friend . . .
Me: WTF. Notice that the locket isn't even speculating. It could have said 'the girl who possibly prefers your friend' but it didn't say that. You trying to tell me that Ron has somehow figured out that Hermione loved Harry before Ron was told that Hermione loved him.
Second best, always, eternally overshadowed . . . Why return? We were better without you, happier without you, glad of your absence... We laughed at your stupidity, your cowardice, your presumption-Who could look at you, who would ever look at you, beside Harry Potter? What have you ever done, compared with the Chosen One? What are you, compared with the Boy Who Lived?"
Then the bushy haired harpy has the nerve to say that Ron has the emotional range of a teaspoon.
R/HR's romance is built on love/hate, an overused cliché that isn't even used an interesting way and I can understand why...because without this 'overused' cliché the romance between them would be BORING.
Harry/Luna--It's not that I dislike them but more that I can't see any chemistry between them that doesn't sound like something that was spawned at the spur of the moment.
Neville/Luna-- Again I don't really see the chemistry but I can understand the couple but it's not something I really care to read unless it's a side couple.
Pairings I hate to write:
Snape crossgen with everyone but Harry and Hermione, Sirius or Remus crossgen, Blaise/any male characters except Harry or Draco, Theo/any male characters other than Harry, Sirius/Remus, Draco/Ginny, Neville/Luna, Seamus/Dean, Dean/Ginny, Michael/Ginny, Michael/Cho, Ron/Lavender, Cormac/Hermione, Harry/Cho, Rowena/Helga, Godric/Salazar, McGonagall/Grubbyplank, McGonagall/Hooch, McGonagall/Sprout, Sprout/Grubbyplank, Sprout/Hooch, Hooch/Grubbyplank, McGonagall/Hermione, Crabbe/Goyle, Angelina Johnson with anyone other than Lee Jordan, Alicia Spinnet/anyone other than OMC, Tracey with anyone other than Dean or Blaise, Padma/any female character, Parvati/any female character, Anthony Goldstein, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, Dumbledore crossgen over one generation apart, Dumbledore with any female characters
Stuff I was challenged to write but couldn't write:
Oliver/Luna--I wouldn't even know where to start with this pairing.
Sirius/Remus--Seriously? How did these two ever wind up together?
All cliches I love: Creature fics, AUs, Azkaban fics, TT, New Schools, Evil Snape, Guardianships, Manipulative Dumbledore, Parodies, Political fics, Runaway Harry especially after he returns years later.
Pet peeves/dislikes of HP fanfics:
The trope in which most Harry slash and some Hermione/male other than Ron shippers follow: Why in all the universe do stories with Snape/Hermione, Draco/Hermione, any male other than Harry or Ron/Hermione, have Harry and Hermione as close friends? When I say close friends, I'm not meaning what Ron and Harry had since book 1. These fics have Harry and Hermione sleep together, have talks together, hug each other and comfort each other.
If I want to read a SS/HG tell me why do I need to read a fanfic where Harry and Hermione have to convince their lovers that they aren't an item, where the two radiate sexual tension and possibly have unspoken crushes on each other, and where the two induce jealousy on the man in question. A man and woman who are friends generally don't elicit these questions unless they are lovers. I hate the whole beat around the bush make it H/HR or don't hint at it because I will read fanfic with this trope and totally imagine them as a couple don't think I won't...trust me it won't be pretty and Hermione will have an early grave.
The complete and utter dissing/blatant disregard of books 5-7: Why? I feel it's an excuse to diss the couples mentioned at the end of book 6. If we're completely disregarding these 'books' then I have to ask can we completely assume that Ginny isn't after Harry's fame so I can write H/G without Ginny being called a fangirl or a whore. Seeing that the passage at the end of book 6 clearly alludes to her being one of the two.
Male pregnancy or MPREG for short
Fics that describe injury to the detail especially self-infliction.
Fics that have characters coerced and manipulated through trauma.
Rape especially when it's used for a dramatic effect.
Any Harry fic that has two or more chapters explaining through goblins about his sealed powers, good fortune and moneys that was stolen by Ron and Ginny or any variation of any character.
Snarry oneshots with fluffy smut-like endings.
Ridiculous names for OCs
Bashing of least favorite character to
Tiny rants on Ginny, Harry and Hermione: Ginny isn't a whore, a skank or dating Harry because of his fame. She can date men because she's a girl...Heck she can date women and be proud of it. She can temporarily be a fangirl because deep down aren't we all FANGIRLS? LOL. For Merlin's sake she may have red hair but this chick doesn't look a thing like Lily. Lily in the books has DARK red hair and Ginny has red hair that I believe was described as FIERY. This girl may be as smart as Hermione but those two girls are nothing alike. Ginny doesn't act a thing like Hermione. She's Fred in disguise dang it. So make her dang funny not some dang sap.
Hermione even with complete disregard of books 5-7 has always been a nag, self-absorbed, boy-oriented, stuck up and conceited harpy. Book 2, she didn't even see that Lockehart was a fraud. So book 6 can't be dissed for Hermione making stupid decisions based on falling in love. Book 4, Hermione was 'flirting' with Harry and thus became the direct cause of why Rita Skeeter printed that rubbish about them. So book 7, wasn't the only time Hermione had stupid relationship drama. Book 3 wasn't exactly one of her best moments walking out on Trelawney teaching divination because who knows it could have been useful. So book 5, 6, 7 Hermione isn't the only time, Hermione acts conceited thinking that she's right all the time and thinks it's her job to juggle everyone's problems with her abilities.
OOCness unless it's justified and I'm feeling extra tolerant.
I cannot stress how much I despise reading fic with Remus calling Harry, 'Pup', Harry calling Sirius, 'Siri', Harry calling Ginny 'Gin', or Harry calling Hermione, 'Mione.'
Those who preach that Hermione and Harry are the perfect match and diss H/G. I don't have a thing against the hardcore H/HR shipper but for Merlin's sake if all the stories are just Super! Harry fics bashing Ron/Ginny/Molly etc how is that any different than a H/G story with the same thing. Change Ginny for Hermione and you still have an OOC sap fest. The only difference is Harry shagging a brunette who from stories I read offers him competent instruction in the mechanics of shagging as he apparently knows it before the two even start dating. Make with that what you will.
Hermione being the prime motivation behind a 'wooby' Harry's actions is another pet peeve of mine. First of all, read the books...seriously. In fact why not write another H/HR ripoff of the seven books and try to justify the reason Harry would love Hermione the first time they met and blow off Ron. For one Harry has never loved Hermione and omitting the books that every H/HR shippers cares about isn't going to change that fact. Harry and Ron both hated Hermione because she was a know-it-all, she's high strung with her knowledge so much she comes across as condescending to both Harry and Ron even though there are times earlier in the book where her knowledge has steered her wrong. Does anyone think that Harry would easily look over her condescending attitude towards him to better himself? I'm just amazed he didn't lash out at her in spite though he may have well did a good majority of his 'mistakes' in the books out of some spite.
SLASH for the sake of SLASH--Good example: Read any Sirius/Remus fic. Find one that isn't OOC, keeping in mind any speculation on their orientation. It kind of feels off putting from the established canon because the characterisation of the characters are sacrificed to make their relationship work.
Pairings I hold a secret fetish for (Edited because I changed my mind after I forgot about some.): Godric/Hermione, Neville/LilyLuna, (I totally forgot about Snumbridge BTW. I love that pairing. :D) Snape/Umbridge, Snape/Trelawney, Sirius/Trelawney.
Stuff I hold secret fetishes for HPFF: SNAPE BASHING. EVIL! Snape, but only when he completely destroys Harry's life and is very competent.(What this person likes Snape but also loves the complete bashing of his character?) Yes, I think it's especially good when Snape is in a crack pairing.
Stuff I'd prefer to read in the fandom order from 1-10:
1. Harry/Snape slash--Preferably with Harry as the dominant and especially when Snape acts vulnerable. 'But Harry is the perfect bottom character I mean he has those big green eyes and short stature he's so a bottom, so why?' My reasons: The #$#$ stereotypes and it's so easy to do that to his #$# character because his lack of experience and I don't like the easy route. I mean the only reason I don't like H/G is because this fact makes it so awkward. At least Harry is a little more experienced in H/HR fics. :D
2. Comedy/Parody, pairing doesn't matter.
3. Angst, Horror, Hurt/comfort--Primarily when a character appears vulnerable or expresses their evil! side.
4. Snape/Harry mentor stories, not guardianship or Severitus though.
5. Snape/Harry guardianship fics.
6. SLASH with great plot.
7. Any story with interesting plot and adventure as long as the writing isn't too bland.
8. Anything relevant to what I'm writing.
Stuff I'd prefer to write:
1. Harry/Snape with dom! Harry and sub! Snape
I have issues with the unequal distribution of power that comes in Dom! Snape fic.
2. Remus/Severus with dom! Remus and sub! Snape
Thank the artist Yuki-pon for that.
3. For the most part I write Dom! Harry and Sub! Snape in slash fanfic.
4. Parodies! Crack!
5. Just about any pairing I'm challenged to write.
6. Evil! Snape with redeemable qualities.
7. UGLY, CANON SNAPE--No silky haired man here. Snape is ugly and I still pair him up. LOLs
8. Grey! but not good! Draco
9. Evil! Lucius
10. Prankster! Ginny
11. Yandere! or Sidekick! Luna
12. Bad ass! Hermione
13. Manipulative Dumbledore
14. Friendly! Ron
15. Redeemable! James Potter Sr.
16. Redeemable! Peter
17. Player! Sirius
18. Complicated subplots
Top Twenty favourite HP characters: *Combination of faves from canon and fanfic.
1. Severus Snape--As a 'fangirl' I can say that I actually hate him alot more than I like him, so wrap your head around that one.
2. Harry Potter--Not Canon, but Fanon totally reeled me in.
3. Ginny Weasley--Hate her in fanon, but adore her in canon.
4. Sirius Black--Badass in canon esp in book 4 and 5.
5. Sybil Trelawney--I totally forgot all about adding her to my list.
6. Hermione Granger--She is badass in canon before book 6.
7. Dolores Umbridge--Other people hate her but I love her. She is so evil.
8. Peter Pettigrew--I think he deserves a second chance. I mean if Snape and Draco can have second chances why can't he?
9. Minerva McGonagall--Always an interesting character to me.
10. Bellatrix Lestrange--She has a very interesting and captivating personality besides being a complete psychopath.
11. Lord Voldemort--A very interesting character to me.
12. Luna Lovegood
13. Lucius Malfoy
14. Padma Patil
15. Parvati Patil
16. Rabastan Lestrange
17. Albus Dumbledore
18. Ron Weasley
19. Remus Lupin
20. Seamus Finnagan
I'm taking requests for fics.
Keeping in mind that I will not write anything I dislike.
Another note to keep in mind:
When reading the fanfiction below keep in mind that though some works are deemed complete they are only 99% complete. I actually deem works complete when I'm 100% satisfied with them. 99% complete implies that the story is complete to read as a story but the material might be adjusted at a later date.
