Crumpets Aren't My Style by Marz1 - SG1 - T

Title: Crumpets Aren't My Style
Author: Marz1
Rating: T
Genre: Action
Pairing: N/A
Chapters: 25
Words: 135,969
Updated: December 28, 2005
Published: August 3, 2004
Status: Complete

Summary: General O'Neill is sent on a nice relaxing dipolmatic mission in the U.K. Of course there's bound to be trouble when he runs into a murderous cult called the Death Eaters, who've some how gotten their hands on alien technology.
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1995083/1/

A great Crossover with SG1, by far the best that I've been able to find. Longish chapters, good action scenes, interesting take on Wandless magic. And of course, that annoying 'saving people thing' getting Harry into shit.

I have this idea for a FanFic. Harry is Transported to a world full of stick figures, and he comes across a new prophecy.
\"SICK O'' THE MANIPULATOR,
HE BECOMES THE MASTURBATOR.
HE GRIPPED HIS WAND WAY TOO HARD,
AND NOW HE PEES TO THE LEFT BY A YARD...\"
Wait.. Wrong prophecy.
Anyways, now he has to fight new evils to get to the Dark Lady.. the Naughty Sorceress.
I call the story... Harry Potter and the Kingdom of Loathing.

You know how Hermione told Harry that he has a 'people saving thing'? She said it like it was a bad thing. I woulda said "Well, if I didnt have this 'people saving thing', you'd be dead right now bitch so shut the fuck up!"

I tried, but I just got bored with it after a while. It was ok I guess, but not my type of book....

That was great. I read it all the way through in oh uh around 7-8 hours, so it's not that long but it was still good.

It could have been expanded into something more but it's still alright where it ended. I'd only suggest you to read it while your waiting for an update from Ravenclaw or Vash and them all.

This was on the list of priority for review, despite it being so old (and apparently neglected).

The fic is a good one, and a well mixed crossover. The characterization of the SG characters is true to form. It's an easy read, and good for a long-time SG1 fan. I'd recommend it, but with the proviso that it might not be especially interesting to someone who doesn't know the Stargate cannon. For that reason, 4/5.

Necro'ing Library threads is fine provided you leave a solid review.

I read this waaaay back; it's terrible. The crossover is completely in the wrong direction. There's nothing worse than Muggles running around the wizarding world waving guns around. It gets all rather preachy, too.

"dipolmatic" in description? First chapter is not better as it completely destroyed my interest in reading the story. For me it was almost impossible to read it. Style was extremely irritating, beginning paragraph may start in contest "the worst way of starting story", "kid" is repeated far too many times and it leaves me deeply irritated for some other reasons that I will leave not analyzed. I will go and read something infinitely better, maybe crappy sould-bond story with heavy bashing.

Funny thing, I read this story yesterday by pure chance from my HP link db due to lack of new material.

I thought the plot got quite interesting to the end. Sure, Harry is a bit weird/naive/passive, the handling of McG felt OC(but entertaining) and stupid Super!Voldemort is lame.

But the Snape/Remus subplot in its sarcastic/dry comedy style was quite entertaining. Has it aged? No doubt but compared to its competition of SG1 canon rehashing Gary Stus the story has some value due to its creativity.
