I've been a massive Harry Potter fan since 2005 thanks to a brilliant friend of mine who introduced me to the series. I've enjoyed the world of fanfiction since I discovered it back in 2000, and I haven't stopped reading them since. I enjoy a writer who can not only tell a good story but keep her/his readers interested. I dislike cliche type of fanfics, and mushy over the top love scenes.
My favorite Harry Potter paring is Hermione and Ron, and it irkes me when people pair them against other people when in my own opinion R/HR deserve no one else but each other.(I blame the movies for people's obsession over HR/H...why??? Have you read the books?)
I refuse to read crappy fics as well, bad grammar makes me want to hurl, and OTT characters will have me shut off the screen and never return to that pile of nonsense again. I do believe people can grow into their writing, and this why there are betas for that. PLEASE USE THEM.
Anyway, right now my favorite authors are Kari and Jes, whom I do believe you guys should check out their stories (in my favorite author section), as they are a great example of well written work, especially if you are a fan of Ron and Hermione. And who knows I might take a stab at writing myself as I do enjoy it but only for my own piece of mind.
