Malignant Objects by Charlie -dashdot- Blue - M

Title: Malignant Objects
Author: Charlie -dashdot- Blue
Rating: M
Genre: Drama/Action/Adventure
Pairings: Multiple and Many
Status: WIP ?
Summary: AU. Left in an orphanage, Harry Potter, unknown twin to the BoyWhoLived, was taken into an underground world of debauchery, hedonism and beauty. Meanwhile, the Dark Lord has risen, and the wizarding world lives in darkness, politics and powergames.
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2817585/1/


WARNING: There is (and don't start screaming yet) slashy references. But that is, as of yet, mild. Despite this, yeah, I do think this it's an awesome read and I am recommending it. The mild!slash is balanced by some reasoning. Here's a review that might? explain:


Quote:
Interesting. It's always fun to see something other than fics that are "rated K for kissing" and shit like that. The writing is well done, and the premise looks like it's going to be exciting. I always love the "Harry abandoned by his parents then comes back to bite them in the ass" fics.

My only concern is the slash bit. Not about it being in the story, it makes sense with the whole debauchery and what not, but I just wanna know if this is a slash fic or a story that *contains* slash in it. It makes sense that Harry, brought up in a world of hedenism, would fuck anything that was attractive regardless of age, sex, or race, but if this is a Harry becomes Draco's (or Lucious', or especially Snape's) boyfriend fic please lemme know now so I can get the fuck outa dodge. Otherwise, if this is a Harry bangs everybody and causes lotsa problems count me in. I can stand the slash as long as there's het to balance it out.

I asked the author a similar question and got the response:

Quote:
…I feel I must tell you that this story will have both slash and het relationships majoring in it…

Go figure. Still, I'm sticking with it for now. It's a good fic so far, despite.

Pretty decent story, good detail, good content, but as razz mentioned has serious slash in the making. The slash is mild so far, yes, but this is a M rated story, with a theme in debauchery. So I wouldn't recommend anyone being blind as to what'll be coming.

This story is a mess. There are so many sub plots and unexplained charactors it's impossible to find a decent story line anywhere.

Okay, I couldn't understand wtf was going with this story at all. They keep switching the scenes and characters that you can't even get what's going on...

As says the A/N in chapter two -

Quote:
A few people have mentioned this is confusing. Keep in mind that this is the ‘prologue’ and so in the next chapter, the ‘jumping’ around of the plot will settle down onto one main storyline. Promise. (kisses)

Also, the story is meant to be a tad ‘oh-my-god-where-did-that-scene-come-from?’ right now. So for now, just read with the presumption that each scene will be seemingly unrelated (the whole story won’t be like that, just the beginning) (more kisses) don’t worry.

I like the disjointedness. It's interesting, giving a range of perspective's, and it's a good way to build up the premises, feed the readers what they need to know. It can be hard sometimes, when you're starting a fic in the middle of the story, to fill in within one prologue all that's taken place for however many years.

Also, I'd keep in mind that most authors do like to keep one or two things to themselves, to leave until a little later to completely explain. But, yeah, besides the slash…

Oh, I didn't see that there...but then again I tend to always just ignore the author notes and just read the story...Oops? Thanks for pointing that out.

I dun care if it devolves into slashishness, because it'll likely be in raves/orgies, and it dun really matter then.

The fic was exceptional, love the plot idea, I've left it a good review.

Lol. It's a bit worrying, but, that A/N at the end - it gives me the impression that the author has nothing planned, and isn't too motivated.

Quote:

Right. Let's hope seventy? some reviews might sway that.

This is kind of confusing at times, with too many pov changes and relatively stupid dopehead non-magic Harry. But I'll give her that her Voldemort is exceptional and general atmosphere pretty cool, so I'll keep following it if the bitch find 70 reviews/chapter satisfying enough and keep writing.

It's not a bad story. I agree that it is a bit confusing at times. And the way it's written...well, it reminds me of a movie. Not any movie in particular, just a movie. Especially the way those girls were described and the part where Harry killed those guys .

Urgh. The author of this story...is a turd. I refuse to read it.

Timeline: I know it’s wrong, but that’s how I’m doing it.

Finishes his first year at Hogwarts – 2001
For some inane reason, the author decided to have Harry leave school when each of the books come out. So basically, he'll be in his fucking 20's by the time he graduates. And wth is he going to do in the two years between classes? Twiddle his fucking thumbs? Idiot!

Um...I think you didn't understand what he was trying to get across Sree...he graduates Hogwarts later...but he is also born later, so he graduates at the normal ages, just everything is shifted 8 years forward.

Anyway, it's pointless, because he doesn't go to Hogwarts in this fic...

Yeah, I'm thinking like the Quentin Tarantino effect - namely 'Kill Bill' or 'Pulp Fiction' - with continuous change of perspectives and tense. Still, but, it's cool.

Chapter 4's up, and.. except for the H/D part, pretty good.

Still among my top 5 WiP's to follow.

*shrugs* on the hopes it will get better. There are some aspects i could see myself enjoying if it was written differently, that's probably why i find it so annoying at the moment.

The new chapter was good, but the interaction between Tobias and his birth parents worries me.

It looks to me like this fic is on course for everyone to get redeemed and be one big happy family...I'd much prefer it for Tobias to stay the way he is.

Also, there's quite a bit of angst towards the end of the chapter.

Despite that, it's still in my top 10 stories - at the moment.
