I am a 29 year old Red-Blooded American female who lives in small town Midwest. I love to read and Harry Potter fanfics are some of my favorite reading material.
I have loved the Harry Potter Series since I was 12 and think J.K Rowling is a writing genius.
The Sorting Hat has placed me in Hufflepuff, I also come from a long line of Hufflepuffs, except for a few Slytherins that sneak in here or there. Loyalty to family and friends is a very important quality to have.
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
I hate certain parts of the ending, J.K. Rowling made a few glaring mistakes, in my opinion.
1. Ginny and Harry & Ron and Hermione is just expected through out the series, there wasn't anything shocking about that.
2. Tonks and Remus dying in the end is just plain WRONG.
3. She killed off one of the twins, Percy I would have been fine with he was a Prat throughout the whole series, but killing off any of the other Weasleys is a crime.
4. Sirius dying come on Harry's only family really, your gonna kill him, I mean with Remus and Fred gone where are the pranksters, with George dealing with his loss, the happiness is just sucked out of the whole series.
Top 3 Dark Lords in the Harry Potter Series
1. Tom Riddle, shouldn't have to explain why, and if you don't know then you really need to reread the books AND re-watch the movies.
2. Albus Dumbledore, he sent a child to an abusive family, and then to his death. Dumbledore was the quintessential Master Manipulator, almost every evil deed since Tom Riddle found out about Hogwarts is on Dumbledore's shoulders, I mean the man was a teacher he dealt with children on a daily basis he should have seen what a PSYCHO Tom was.
3. Gellert Grindewald, he was evil, you don't learn much about how evil he was, but through out the whole series he is still an Dark Lord, not as evil as the other two but still he was mentioned so he is on the list.
Things I love in fanfics
1. Hermione stories are my absolute favorite, that doesn't mean I won't read others, but I prefer Hermione.
2. I love threesome or more pairings, I read just two in a couple, but I love threesomes or more.
3. Weasley Bashing (preferably, Ginny, Ron and Molly, maybe even Percy on rare occasions, the others [I like them in the books a lot] it's hard but if written right I can except some of the Weasley men as evil and manipulative especially Arther with the way Molly is.)
4. Dumbledore bashing
5. Making a small character in the book a main character in the story.
6. I can live with AU/AR stories as long as they come to life and are described well by the author.
7. Hermione can be a pureblood but make her reaction believable, I mean unless her parents are abusive or ignore her, she wouldn't just find out she's not theirs and then go pack her bags to go live with another family and never think of them again. Make the break believable, who just turns around and walks away from the people who have raised you most of your life. She would either write to them or fight on leaving them, make it a normal reaction, this is Hermione we're talking about she's a Gryffindor lion not a heartless jellyfish.
Things that will make me stop reading
1. Bad grammar, be that tenses, or spelling (Authors need to read what they have written at least once before posting, sometimes just doing that can make a story ten times easier to read, and the readers don't feel like their ears are bleeding from just reading one chapter).
2. Where is the plot?
3. It's mostly just conversation, and no description of what's going on.
4. Making a known girl a boy, or a known boy a girl, (Harry is a boy, Hermione is a girl, and Draco is a boy). Now Blaise can be either because that character is not a known girl or boy, but please make it believable.
5. The characters belong on the street or talk like they should. Most of these characters were well educated or came from well educated families they do know how to speak proper English I mean they grew up in England, not in a gang or the backwoods of Kentucky. Make their language believable you do the characters a disservice if you don't represent them well.
6. The Author all of the sudden stops writing, if you start a story KNOW where you are going because once you have that fan base then they are waiting for an ending and taking four years to update is a disservice to your readers. Unless I love the story and can live without an ending, if an author hasn't updated a story in six months I take it off my Favorites list.
