I liked it. It was original in many aspects. It had a pairing that I haven't seen done much and the potion was a nice touch. Not bad at all for such a short romance fic.

It was an pretty good fic. Well written and the pairing is one where Pansy is Pansy.

Morons need not apply

You bumped a three-month old topic...for that? What in hell possessed you to do that? You've been around for a while, too. What the fuck?

Are you stupid or just retarded? If this was a meaningful post then I can understand but WTF is wrong with you.

You have been here long enough to know we don't like bumpers and you go do this. I get the feeling you want to feel the banstick as it does its thing.

Hmm.. I guess that is the reason not to start posting while drunk.. I’m So sorry. I didn't mean to revive this thread when it was that old, but you know gin goes in, mind and memory goes out.

What actually made me post is the fact that Random probably is in the top 4 know (see respected/famous/feared) posters of NGE fanfiction (Random’s best works are all Lemons). It surprised me a lot to see him doing HP at all.

That being said I can see why you refer to this:

Please note that Library threads are excluded, I know that I doesn’t mean that I’m allowed to necroposte, but please, when citing something at least make sure it applies.

regards

Nope. Bumps in the Library threads are excluded from the general rule, but only if you give an honest, well-though-out opinion about the story, or notify us about an update and critique it.

Obviously, your post does not fall under either of those categories. That would be a waste of a post in any thread. If you had edited you post, and put some thoughts about the story in it, then we would have been fine with it. Sadly, you didn't do that.

Yes I get the point. I’m not exactly stupid, I was jut drunk.
But now the nitpicking:

[/qoute]

That is not right according to:

[qoute]

[/qoute]

Library threads are excluded from the rule, no questions asked, if you want it different, then at least rephrase the rule so you got it covered. In its present form it doesn’t apply to library posts even if they doesn’t have a "well-though-out opinion about the story". That being said the second part of the rule is still relevant. and I accept that.

Summed up: don’t start yelling about necroposting when the rule doesn’t apply. Yell about the lack of content in my message, that is relevant and is covered by the rule, and of cause I can understand and respect that.

/K.

(Post Scriptum).: I don’t have a problem with the rule, I was just drunk. What I have a problem with is someone trying to make a part of the rule apply to me when it doesn’t!

Actually, it does apply. Instead of you posting anything to do about the story, you posted

That has nothing to do with the story. You bumped just to say, OMG he is writing, LIKE WOW!!!!oneoneone!!eleven!

If you were to post, I like the story because blah blah blah. Then it wouldn't have mattered.

Hmm.. just to make this simple:

Rule:
No more necroposting. As I said, only post in an old thread if you have something damn good to say. Library threads are excluded from this, as we want your opinion. This doesn't mean you may post "they updated!".



Part that doesn’t apply, as said reply is within the library department:

No more necroposting. As I said, only post in an old thread if you have something damn good to say. Library threads are excluded from this, as we want your opinion.



Part that does apply:
This doesn't mean you may post "they updated!".



Interpretation of rule:

Do not necropost, unless major points are being brought up ( No more necroposting. As I said, only post in an old thread if you have something damn good to say.). This doesn’t apply to posts in the Library (Library threads are excluded from this, as we want your opinion). Never the less please post relevant stuff. (This doesn't mean you may post "they updated!".)


Be careful what you post as rules, some people take them literally. And in that case everything but posting they updated would actually be okay.


As I stated before, the only reason I make such a fuzz about it is because of a dislike for correctness (being hit in the head with rules) when it doesn’t apply.

It's common sense. Don't bump a three month topic if you have nothing relevant to say. Yes, it is in the Library, but that only means you should say something about the story. You, did not.

This was decent for a quickie romance story. The characterizations are solid but dull, and the writing is mostly good (save for the author's annoying habit of misspelling Hermione's name).

I kept waiting for something exciting to happen, but it never really did. The story is basically about Harry realizing things are not always what they seem -- with respect to both his reputation in the school and the complexity of people like Pansy. It's not a story I'd ever want to read again. But I guess Harry and Pansy's relationship was developed slowly and plausibly enough...

3/5

Well the fact that it starts on chapter 9 is annoying, started reading it thinking it was the first chapter. And now I'm stuck knowing the ending before I've read the story.

I liked it, it wasn't spectacular but it was a decent read. It addressed the stereotypical characterization of the houses and I actually liked Pansy. Ron at the end was a nice touch, that he was the first to "accept" her or at least say that in order to no cause a scene there.

In other stories he would have started shouting like a moron while the other Gryffindors nod and yell "outrageous!".

For me it is a good 3/5

I really liked this story. It's one of the only ones that I'll go back and read a second time, because I liked it that much. It's hard to find good Harry/Pansy.

4/5
