I am now the proud owner of an account on this site purely because I started looking for stories to read via favourites on other peoples accounts and then I thought wait a minute! I can help like-minded people by creating my own favourites lists with fics which I think are just amazing. But then I realised that I was only viewing profiles from signed reviews left on said amazing stories and that I really do not know what to say when reviewing, I mean what do you say? I LOVED YOUR STORY, YOU ARE HILARIOUS, KEEP GOING? None of which would make me as an author continue writing. So now I've decided to write a fanfic which I know a lot of you will find clichéd but it is in my favourite genre: peggy sue fanfiction within the Harry Potter universe.
I am also interested in the effects of one change being applied to what is canon (if the fanfic isn't a peggy sue.) For example Harry who grows up muggle being like Hermione in that he questions things like Mrs Wealsey not remembering the platform number conveniently when Harry is right there, when she has had 6 children attend Hogwarts leading to at least 10 years of visiting the platfrorm twice each not including Christmases. Or Harry escaping the bullying by researching methods of defence etc.
As much as I respect J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter universe, in what way would the almost Ravenclaw Hermione end up with the bane of her existence, you guessed it; Ronald Weasley!?
As such I am all for fanfiction where Hermione ends up with ANYONE else reasonable (ie within her age group or obeying the "your age / 2 + 7 = youngest you can date" or the reverse "(Hermione's age - 7)*2 = oldest she can date" rules.
I dislike the invention of new characters and also unlikely details Rowling may (not) have left out if they are done in ways that make them unbelievable, however I like the outrageously funny totally AU story just like the next fanfiction reader.
