Poll: I have a bunch of Omakes written for Super Human. Do you want then in between the text like I had planned, or in a different story? Vote Now!
Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter, and Avengers.
Bookworm and Hp fan.
I luv Rowling's setting and ideas (basically the magical world), but there's only a single character I actually like. Luna Lovegood is amazing and reading about her is so wholesome.
I have a poll up about a potential new story. Please vote, I look forward to posting it, but won't if nobody will read it.
Thanks for reading and please contribute your opinion in reviews (with pm inbox open so I can respond!)
Please vote on the polls, I look forward to hearing what you think, that's why they are there
As of now, I am currently focusing on Super Human, writing out my inspiration and momentum. I currently have 55k words written, the length of a short novel. I write in chronological order so I will be posting the chapters in the order I write them.
I could also use a beta, if you are interested please pm me. However, I work entirely in google docs and only copy-paste into FFN when I post so that none of my work falls prey to the inevitable FFN glitches. If you are available, please, feel free to pm me, I don't mind if you don't have a lot of time, just for a few mistakes may not catch, with the added benefit of getting to read the stuff as soon as I write and not having to wait for me to scheduled post it. I promise, not a lot of work, I mostly self edit but forget stuff like the versus the here and there and might forget to catch it.
I write HP fanfic and am open to ideas on what to add to the plot of my current stories(s), as I will write more in the future and don't feel like updating my profile.
As for my fanfic style, here are the fanon/canon stuff I (almost) always follow:
Dumbledore interferes in everything too much for anyone's good, greater or lesser.
Canon Ron Weasley can't be good character unless he grown up, which he doesn't until the Battle of Hogwarts in canon.
Phoenixes are just birds, not gods, they follow those who practice light magic, not necessarily the good guys.
Light and Dark magic is not the same as good and evil. The ministry disagrees, but since when has the ministry ever been right?
Muggleborns are the results of latent magic in squibs who are obliviated and kicked out, then adopted and have kids, or their descendants.
Magic and Hogwarts are sentient, just not in the same way as humans.
Each family has unique magics, this is semi-canon. For example, parseltongue, animagus, metamorphmagus, and I think there are more.
Pureblood supremacy is bad, but the idea that magicals should marry other magicals and not muggles isn't. Note that parentage doesn't matter, magicals are magicals and inbreeding is a no-no. Voldemort is just a megalomaniac terrorist with delusions of grandeur (a la snappity snippity sarcasm snape-style).
Ollivander immediately knows the right wand and is just low-key insane or a showoff.
Slytherin, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff were not the founder's real names, but nicknames sort of like those of the marauders (I do follow that in all my stories, but not all my characters know that).
There is an alternative to horcruxes that Riddle didn't know about that encases a soul in an item after the person's death and does not necessitate abominations against magic. The Sorting hat, the Giant Squid, magical portraits like Walburga Black's and those of Hogwarts Headmasters, etc. are created in this fashion, even if magical portraits are a lot weaker.
Canon pre-teen or teenager Harry Potter should not be a protagonist.
Family magic is looked down on, which is why old purebloods seem so weak, they just have a part of their magic oriented towards their family magic, but don't use it, therefore ones like Crabbe, Goyle, Parkinson, Neville Longbottom, Smith, Ron Weasley, McLaggen, Rabastan Lestrange, etc. seem so magically weak. They got a larger dose of family magic than others, therefore a lower amount of normal magic. All magicals are born equally powerful, it just depeneds on what part of their magic is made for universal magic, what part for family magic, and how they utilize it all.
Magic is a muscle, wizards are born with equal potential, some are just weaker because they are not willing to work on expanding that potential.
All who can use magic have magical cores, but the most powerful ones can use wild magic, or latent magic in a highly magical area to cast more spells and stronger ones.
She-who-must-not-be-named Tonks is awesome, just is magically weak and clumsy because she is always metamorphed and never in her natural form because of her striking resemblance to her convincted Aunt. Narcissa Malfoy dyes and straightens her hair for the same reason, while Andromeda Tonks doesn't socialize, and when she does, wears heavy glamour charms.
Harry Potter and Alastor Moody were conceived under Felix Felicis and have very strong luck, which saves their life when they should be dead, but also gives them horrible luck that lands them into those life or death situations in the first place. Similarly, Tom Riddle was concieved under a love potion, making him unable to love, but others to be drawn to him, even when he looked like a human-snake hybrid about to mate with nagini. And Snape was also concieved under a love potion, but he has the opposite. He can love but others don't like him. And Dumbledore and Xenophilius Lovegood were conceived or born under confundus charms, making them low-key insane. Ollivander is just ollivander. insanity... why not?
Luna Lovegoood is amazing, but all her creatures and insanity is a coping mechanism to deal with the death of her mother (and potential misunderstood magical gifts)
Dumbledore knew all about the events of Halloween 1981 and purposefully released the events to capitalize on the publicity of being Harry's mentor, as well as having Sirius locked away without a trial with the power to give him one, knowing about Peter as he controlled the Hogwarts wards, but still wanting harry to look up to him as the person who saved him from the Dursleys.
Harry's treatment at the Dursley's was illegal.
Petunia Evans-Dursley and Severus Snape, no matter the excuses they use were just toxic people who don't know how to let go of a decade-long grudge and get on with their lives and were just plain horrible people.
Even the Slytherins hated Snape.
The Malfoys were nowhere near as horrible as Harry's view of them was.
The series had a very tainted view of events and made everyone seem one-dimensional except the main good characters, but many readers don't realize that.
Albus Dumbledore is either naive or insane. You do not fight AK's with stunners and expect your troops to survive, as well as a teacher, he should have been able to notice abuse on at least three characters that we know of that suffered it, Riddle, Snape, and Harry Potter.
The unforgivables, like everything listed by the ministry are not exactly that. The imperius curse could save someone from suicide or give them a forceful adrenaline boost to escape a dangerous situation. The AK was designed to kill livestock without bloodshed and the 'you need hate to cast it' is BS. You need the opposite of love, which is indifference, hence why it could be used on livestock, or hospital patients that could never heal and whose relatives don't want them to suffer. The cruciatus, I think is a different thing entirely. I think it wasn't meant to have an incantation, and that the words were added later when it was turned to torture. I think the spell was designed as a pure expression of magic, and the patronus is another version. It is just pure magic released from the wand, if you want to torture someone, your magic will fulfill that demand and make them feel like they're being tortured. If you want to keep people safe, weather from love, hope, joy, or other positive memories and the intention of safety, it can keep you safe. It can be used as a healing version, a concealment spell, or any other spell. Others were stemmed from it, to make it easier but more focused, hence the incantation and wand movement.
Harry Potter is a metamorph. Maybe not a very powerful one, maybe he didn't get taught. But why else would his hair never need styling, cutting, or grow back when Petunia sheared it off?
If canon characters were shipped with not alive, not sentient things (idk but it's a thing), it would be Drapple (Draco Malfoy/ Green Apple, an actual thing) Ron Weasley/ Chicken (could be a thing), Luna Lovegood/Pudding (also a thing), Harry Potter/Treacle Tart (i'll make it a thing), Hermione Granger/Hogwarts: A History (most definently a thing), and OC/Hogwarts (thingymajigy that supercalifregilisticalexpialedociously could be a thing).
The Dursleys were being paid for Harry's upkeep. I know what kind of job is required for their lifestyle, I grew up in a household just slightly less well-off then they were, my parents gave me one or two presents for my birthday, not thirty, but my dad did have a low-key sports car, while my mom drove a mini-van. And my dad was the only one out of my parents that had a paying job (my brother and I were plenty for my mom, though she did have more college degrees than my dad). And the type of job and attitude needed for only one person to work that kind of job for that lifestyle is one Vernon never could have kept. It needs way more than forty hours a week and a hardworking hufflepuff attitude my dad and many others have, but Vernon certainly didn't.
The weasleys were lower middle class poor, but not broke-poor. They probably just funneled money into their kid's hogwarts education instead of new clothes and homeschooling (which would have been a lot smarter, with how Hogwarts is a danger magnet). I doubt Hogwarts comes cheap.
And that's it!
Also, please note that my characters are not overpowered. My style of writing, however, is that in which I draw the readers in in the beginning by having 'wow, powerful!' protagonists. But I later explain how what they do is usually the result of good creativity to deal with what they have at their disposal. BUt some canon characters which were overpowered in canon will stay that way, like Voldemort. No normally a powered person can cast a dozen AK's or crucio's in a row. He's absurdly powerful, but after he made Horcruxes he became insane and/or lost some of his potential with his soul. Regina Grey in Morrigan Returns 2 (the first one has been put on hold for the time being) is not even that powerful, she just knows some 'magic hacks'. And she is more powerful with her words than her magic. She is powerful, yes, but only about as much as an adult harry if he had all the same resources she had at her disposal. It will be hinted at until I reveal it sometime closer to the first task, maybe, that Regina did not grow up being homeschooled and then only learning magic in Ilvermorny. She had 2 absurdly powerful parents, just like Leo, and also got taught a lot of stuff normal people don't get taught. She is not all-knowing, neither is she all-powerful. She is powerful and knows a lot, yes. But it is actually not that hard to guess where her information comes from. The best invisible source(s) (hint: RS and H-E). in Dark Marauders, the marauders are just an extremely good team, and just like in canon, they will not bend over backward to please anyone, in this case, Voldemort. They will work with him, yes, but not serve him, at least not like the other death eaters, most of which seem incompetent in canon anyways. Dark Lady Pendragon, I'm pretty sure I've already revealed who the dark lady is, wait did I? Nope. Got it, that's the next chapter. Anyways, if you don't know this yet, she is powerful because of a few individual talents that it WILL be explained how she got when she didn't have it in canon. She is also very good because of the sheer amount of allies, and very powerful ones that she has. If you don't know yet, she has all the freakin' goblins at their back. An entire magical race, one shrewd enough to have kept control of almost all the wizard's gold even though dozens of rebellions over the centuries (whose fault those were are different topics, as it stands they did happen). That and all of House Back, because though by the time Sirius appeared in canon, he was the last unmarried male heir to hold the black name, he was not, by far, the last of his family. They were extensive, and they were powerful. So canon is low-key sexist because it holds to the idea that the Black blood ran out, even though there were about a dozen women born Blacks still alive by that point, not to mention people born or raised by Blacks. Also, do you really think the Black family, described as extremely paranoid, almost to Moody's level, kept itself to only Britain, the country whose government was most likely to turn on them, especially with Dumbledore leading it? No way. Any other criticism that is important I will probably put in my author's notes.
Furthermore, for people looking forwards to heroes who win gloriously and know they are good, Et Cetera, go read someone else's work. one of my favorite FFnet authors with this style is RobSt. I ALWAYS write anti-heroes. Always. I like reading about heroes, but I am unable to write them for the simple reason that I cannot buy into that mentality. Every single one of my stories, even if it isn't revealed yet, had the MC having to control themselves, and decide whether or not power is worth it, and what they are and aren't willing to give up, and at the good and bad of power is. I also don't write one-sided villains if I can avoid it. It may seem that way, but they aren't.
My MC will be an anti-hero, my villain will believe themselves to be in the right, and will most likely be Machiavelli style or the like. Because nobody does anything believing themselves to be wrong or evil. And I don't write normal heroes because characters deserve depth, especially the main ones.
