Author has written 7 stories for Harry Potter, Naruto, and Shakespeare.
Hello! Call me Briett. I first started reading fanfiction about...oh, three months after I finished the Harry Potter books in the spring of 2008. (Yes, I'm slow to jump on bandwagons.)
I like Harry Potter and Naruto fanfiction. My headcanon for the Yondaime is Jareth from the movie Labyrinth.
My favourite pairings are probably Itachi/Shisui, Sasuke/Tenten, and Dean/Seamus. I used to like Harry/Hermione, but now I really don't. I feel like it would never, ever work. (I also, for the same reasons, don't especially like Naruto/Sasuke.) I used to like dark!Harry fics and manipulative!Dumbledore fics in which he often winds up with Hermione, but now I can't stand them because they're really rather poorly written. Although Hermione/Snape is considerably worse and if you like that then we probably won't get along.
I hate when people make Uchiha Fugaku out to be a horrible evil man who abuses his wife. I think he's just another in a line of examples from the Naruto verse as to why trained assassins make really bad parents. Other Fanon Flanderizations that bother me a great deal are incrediblyawfulfather!Hiashi, überevil!Albus, genius!Naruto, and slutty!Ginny.
Oh, and millionaire!playboy!Itachi. It's not usually bad reading...as long as you forget that you're reading an AU Naruto fic. There's nothing wrong with the genre (set in modern Japan, no chakra) in which this characterisation originates, per se, but AU doesn't mean OOC. Excessively!Asexual!Itachi, taking this and running in the opposite direction, is not much better, but...c'mon, guys. It's Itachi. He, like, hates everyone. And didn't he kill his girlfriend or something? [also, doesn't that imply she was an Uchiha? Er...]
On a related note, what is with all the let's-give-everyone-kekkei-genkai people? It's incredibly annoying. It's slightly irritating in the Naruto fandom, but since that universe already has exceedingly-overpowered-bloodline limits, (hellooo, Rinnegan) it's somewhat okay. But in the Harry Potter world...seriously? Come on. Being genetically predisposed to being good at potions is illogical, and having an affinity towards a particular element is so un-canonical and so is...well, all the things these people tend to come up.
My pet project is making a list of every.single.pairing in the Naruto fandom. The crossover pairings are pretty silly, but the weirdest ones featuring Naruto characters I've found so far are: Sakura/Pakkun, Sasuke/Pakkun, Naruto/fem!Zetsu, and Itachi/Kyuubi. Plus a lot of incest. And I'm starting to become convinced someone has paired Sakura with every single named Uchiha. Currently I've found ones with her and Sasuke, Itachi, Shisui, Fugaku, Izuna, and Madara (not at the same time, though...). [and yes, I have examples! -]
Itachi freaks me out. A lot.
So does Kurenai. Maybe it's the red eyes?
(If you are not caught up on recent events in Naruto, you may wish to avoid what is below)
10/30/11: Today I learned that Tobi is not Madara. I was on TVTropes, reading about "Dead Person Impersonation", and I highlighted a spoiler (purposefully)-and there it was. Then I looked it up on Narutopedia, and found that yes, yes, it was so.
(so he was in that sixth coffin we didn't get to see the contents of that shocked Tobi so much, then?)
I personally think it's ridiculous. I mean-really? Who else could it be? The Rikudou Sennin? I just know all of the 'Tobito' people are coming out of the woodwork like chihuahuas right now, and even though that doesn't make a whole lot of sense it isn't like there's any other reasonable choices! I mean really, unless it's a character who hasn't been named yet, who could it be? Sarutobi Sasuke probably would have had brown hair, but he was supposed to be a great ninja. I really can't think of anybody else who would have been alive when Naruto was born (you know, with the taking-the-demon-out thing) that isn't either a. still alive or b. died visibly after he was born.
Although speaking of Sarutobi Sasuke,great doesn't always mean good, and we know he was, at the very least, Uchiha-enough that Fugaku and Mikoto named their son after him. And he would have been alive at the same time Madara was, right?
Um...Senju Hashirama, maybe? But how would he have got the Sharingan? (same for Sasuke) I mean, the Mangekyou is pretty rare, is it not?
Uchiha Izuna had the Mangekyou, but seriously that makes even less sense than Tobi being Obito.
Actually, I have another idea: Tobi is really...
Neville Longbottom. What?
Do you have any better ideas?
9/3/12: well butter me up and call me a pony, Tobi was really Obito all along! Kishi, you troll!
Seriously, though, how does this make any sense whatsoever?
