Random facts about me:
Name: Gamma Cavy here, Kes on Dragonfable.
My stance on pairings and shipping: I'll read pretty much anything as long as its well written, but I can't write them myself. Don't ask me to give romance anything more that a side mention in my work.
A little more about me: I am an avid Dragonfable player since before Nythera apeared, and am usually there fighting side by side with my dragon, Veritas Violet-Wing, whenever I'm not watching Fullmetal Alchemist(2009 version), reading Pandora Hearts, or writing. I have two beloved pet guinea pigs, who purr at me often, and my all time favorite movie is Ratatouille, with G-force being my second. (It has guinea pigs, how could I not love it.) I am something of an artist, work with birds and goats, and love drawing dragons. Pencil is my preferred medium, be it colored or normal, and I am of the opinion that people who use hard and soft pencils to draw with are over complicating things, having gotten the same results with your basic pencil.
Hogwarts house: Hufflepuff
Our house motto:
Hufflepuff: house with the stupidest name. The loyal, the hardworking
The ones who were too tricky to be caught being tricky
Smart enough to want a life outside the ivory tower
And just enough temperance on that foolhardy daring.
Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.

AU - alternate universe. This basically means that it can't relate to the canon verse in anyway .eg highschool fics and vampire fics about stories that aren't already about highschool or vamptires etc (ie not Twilight :P)

Guidelines for Crossover Fanfiction
1. Power levels must mesh. If doesn’t matter if you think universe A kicks so much more ass than universe B, crossovers where one side drastically owns the other are auto-fail. For believable conflict, and thus an interesting story, sometimes canon apparent power standards must be modified. Doing this heavy-handedly will make the other universe fans angry. Not doing it at all is worse. Just use a little logic, people. If the lead of one universe is nearing forty, and one’s a teenager, the passage of time alone allows for growth. Just because area-of-effect spells aren’t commonly seen in HP doesn’t mean there aren’t any. Hell, Pettigrew blew up a street and killed a dozen Muggles with one spell. I repeat: Pettigrew.
Example: Naruto ninjas have greater speed? Meet Harry Potter apparation. Why isn’t it used in HP combat? Well, think about it. Two wizards using apparation in a battle are going to basically have a high-stakes game of tag, based more on luck than skill. Sensible duelists are going to go for skill, thus minimal apparation. And there’s always the chance that one may be dueling within an anti-apparation ward.
2. Both universes must be present to some extent. In other words, a character crossplant is not a crossover. A boy raised in the ninja world called Harry Potter who’s not involved with Hogwarts, Britain, Voldemort, etc. is called an OC. Just because you call a random LotR elf ‘Harry’ does not mean it’s Harry Potter or a crossover. Call this the ‘if it looks like a duck’ principle. If it looks like a ninja, acts like a ninja, talks like a ninja, was raised like a ninja, and never had contact with magic or the magical world, it’s likely a ninja, not a wizard.
3. Share the pain, share the glory. Anakin Skywalker is the one Chosen to bring balance to the Force. Taking down Voldemort is Harry’s job. Even if it’s a HP/Star Wars crossover, and you think Anakin owns Harry, they are both leads and heros. Respect that, instead of flipping Harry the literary middle finger, and the crossover’s chances of being a success instead of auto-fail drastically improve. It’s one thing to expand a hero’s duty to encompass another universe; gloryhounding in favor of your preferred lead is an entirely different animal.
Corollary: Reincarnation-style crossovers can avoid this issue entirely, but only if done well and carefully. If Harry’s the reincarnation of Namikaze Minato, something of Harry must remain – he must still use magic, still interact with the wizarding world/Harry’s friends, etc. – or you have ventured into the land of lead-replacement, another auto-fail.
4. A crossed universe must be internally consistent. This consistency will usually come at the price of an altered canon, with alterations varying from minimal to great. Wait, Merlin was an Ancient? That’s kinda neat, but not HP-canon relevant, unless the story in question involves Harry being a squib with the Ancients gifts. On the other hand, if the crossed universe involves Harry being a son of Sparda, then post-GoF canon is by necessity blown out of the water. One, because devils and demons will be a known if uncommon threat, and two, because the potential consequences of Voldemort’s rebirth are positively hellacious. Handwaving this is almost certainly auto-fail.
5. Good and evil are subjective. As easy as it is to draw lines in the sand, the Good Guys of respective universes are not always going to agree on what Good is. Buffy and the Scoobies kill supernatural stuff. Wizards are usually Ok, but anything they see as a demon is fair game. House elves, for instance. Or centaurs, or Dragons, or some of Hagrid's creatures. Even more importantly, megalomaniacs out to enslave the world don’t usually team up. Use each other, yes. And even a megalomaniac out to enslave the world may find himself fighting with the forces of Good against a megalomaniac out to destroy it utterly. For a skilled writer, this can be very fertile ground. Very, very difficult to pull off realistically, yes, but to do so would likely transcend the bounds of epic storytelling.
