Thirty - Something Financial Advisor with a nasty fanfic habit... grin>
I like any well-written story, though I steer away from most slash and have been leaning towards non-traditional ships. I prefer long epic stories to one-shots. I liked HBP, though parts of it did disappoint me, like the abandoned DA, and the poorly handled ships. But the possibilites for fanfic are fantastic.
I see the HP fanfic genre taking a decidedly serious turn. The new canon almost demands a more sophisticated and more serious fanfic. The death of Dumbledore, Horocruxes, the spanking that Harry received dueling Snape. Super-Powered Harry will be less likely, and Harry will have to grow up as he leaves Hogwarts and searches for the Horocruxes.
Ships, I think are still wide open. Teen romance is a fleeting thing, (I don't even remember who I dated in High School) and a creative author can fiddle with ships to their heart's content. -Wartime makes for strange bedfellows.
Thank you to all authors out there who share their time and talent with us for free. Someday I may try my hand at writing a fic, but for now I will continue to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
