I hate the general level of ff.net stories. Yes, I hate it. 90 percent fics here are childish and stupid (Sturgeon's law, anyone?)
During my 5-year Harry Potter obsession when I've read everything which had Draco in it (thanks to Cassandra Claire), I've gradually learnt English slang, which was beyond useful in my work as a game localization professional. So I keep reading, although now I'm much more discriminating about what to read.
Even though I'm not into HP anymore, since I've watched BtVS and realized that I've always tried to mold Draco into Angel, even before knowing who Angel was. I've just wanted to have proof that there wasn't such thing as "beyond redemption", and - well, there isn't any lower quality for hero material than Liam the drunkard turned Angelus the sadist. And yet, Angel is not "just" a champion, but a good man, someone I would be glad to live next door to.
I've deleted my translations somewhere in 2005 because ff.net had problems with Cyrillic, and don't plan to post anything more, but who knows?
