Author has written 2 stories for Faculty, and Harry Potter.
Fanfiction Pet Peeves
ship names – combining names of the members of the ship lends to erasing the personalities of the individual in favor of a shared personality and the implication that dissolving ones personality is love
having any of Hermione's romantic interests call her 'Mine', 'kitten', or any other diminutive and/or dehumanizing name
marriage law fics where either or both of the characters fall in love with each other, because 'we're stuck together anyway' or 'we're really compatible and would never realized/admitted it without a law forcing us together'.
If there were a magical population problem, it would be easier to use the 'turkey baster method', not require marriage, and use Ministry funding to support all children through free child care and scholarships to Hogwarts. But as most marriage law fics are presented it's an attempt to enslave people (especially muggleborns), protect patriarchal norms, or provide an excuse for chosen characters to have sex (seriously that's what potions accidents are for).
The hymen doesn't have to break and is still intact in 52% of women who are sexually active:
The hymen is an elastic membrane, that can stretch:
not describing sexual anatomy right
house elves really just like working for people – magical power for a full-service housekeeper is NOT a fair trade
asking any questions in summary esp “What will happen next?” “Will they find love?”
Making Severus Snape (or any other love interest) a possessive and controlling lover, I'm mystified that anyone finds this romantic. Possessive and controlling behavior are features of a potential abuser. I read to escape reality not confirm it.
Referring to common objects as muggle: ie muggle fans, muggle cars, etc.
If I see anyone calling eyes orbs again, I swear I shall scream or vomit, depending on my mood.
Pregnancy as a plot device. Not to mention the ridiculous number of fics where abortion isn't an option or considered. I especially hate fics where the pregnant character refuses to consider abortion because there's so much death in the world/war but also mentioning not being ready for parenthood.
