Whatever Happened to Bromance? by vlad the inhaler - M

Title: Whatever Happened to Bromance? (aka Harry Fucking Potter)
Author: vlad the inhaler
Rating: M
Genre: Humor/Friendship
Library Category: Humor
Pairings: Harry/Romilda
Chapters: 3
Words: 10,596
Published: October 16, 2009
Updated: January 21, 2010
Status: Complete
Summary: Cormac McLaggen explains a few simple truths to Harry, with profound consequences. Harry/Romilda. Smut.
Link: FFN WBA

Imagine my great surprise when I found out that there wasn't a Library thread for this story. I could have sworn I saw one before, but after double-checking and not finding anything, I thought that this definitely deserves library submission. Better late than never, I guess.

I don’t think many words are needed, since most DLP members should already know the masterpiece that is this fic. The story is epic, hilarious, and believable. I found it a truly satisfying read, especially after all the ‘True Love’ stories out there. The selling point of the story is, of course, the genius characterization of Cormac. This story changed my impression of Cormac from an annoying side character in the canon to the greatest bro and wingman of all time.

Easy 5/5 for me. If this doesn’t get in the Humor section of the Library, I’m not sure what would.

I went back because you tagged this story as complete and as far as FF.net is concerned they have it marked as WIP. So if Vlad sees this thread the question is: Is this fic complete, WIP, or abandoned at a good cutoff point?

Yeah, I assumed without checking. My bad. I automatically thought that it was complete because the story had closure and there didn't seem to be any intention for additional chapters. Not sure if I should change it to WIP, though, since the story seems to be complete.

This story is complete. There are literally no words that could be added to make it better than it is. Much satisfy. Very Romilda. Wow.

Thank you Vlad you've finally brought closure to a fan. I had always gone back to this fic thinking the was more to it.

I read this last year. One of my favorites! Definitely a classic. Cromac is the best part of this fic and Harry being so bewildered. I don't think he has any idea what hes getting himself into with Romilda. lol. I'd rate this as 5/5

I'd honestly assumed this was already in the library. It remains one of the funniest things I've ever read, not just in fanfic.

It's well-written, nicely paced and for a short fic, it's a good, self-contained story. And yeah, good smut. Best Cormack McLaggen in the fandom. It doesn't try to be anything more than it needs to and it does what it should very well.

4,5/5, rounded up to 5 because fuck it, this is excellent.

I don't usually read these type of fics, but fuck it to hell, 5/5 from me dude. Amazing job on this one!

Hilarious Cormac in this one, the only one I've read and found bearable.

I'm 100% positive this was in the library (under the title "Harry F****** Potter" perhaps, it's in the WBA), but must have disappeared at some point. Regardless, this is an easy 5/5 story.

Smut was okay. Took me out of the fun when he immediately went from the wrong hole to the right hole without any... Cleaning. I'll pretend Romilda did some magic before or afterwards to fix that since it balances out with the inexperienced Harry being realistically early to arrival.

Writing-wise was great. Narrative voice was sharp. I wasn't a fan of Dobby's characterization. But I did love that fratBro!Cormac uses wizarding colloquialisms frequently which is something I feel is lacking in other fics. These little details and this gem: "You're all the same, you men." Made this a 5/5 for me.

I love this fic. It's got all the emotions captured perfectly. Harry's teenage awkwardness, Cormac's cockiness and Hermione's anger.
Also, it's probably one of the only works in which Cormac is more than just an arrogant idiot.
But most of all, it was Harry's internal conversations with Cormac that did it for me. Absolutely hilarious. 5/5

This is a quality piece of work, completely lost it here:

'Harry nodded, adding further fuel to the fire when he instinctively reached out and high-fived Cormac, which ended in a very confused series of hand gestures that Harry didn't quite follow.

"That's how we do it!"'

All hail Vlad, guy's a genius.

I wouldn't know about genius for sure, but @vlad sure is a very good and dependable tour guide.

This was pretty good. It's rather easy to envision Cormac as the archetypal frat boy. Not too many decently written stories feature Harry shacking up with his fangirl(s) in a mostly tasteful manner. 4/5

This is my headcanon for quite some time now - I think it's the oneshot that I've reread the most.
Canon Harry, hilarious Cormac, seductive Romilda with a conclusion - what more could a reader want?
5/5
