Reminds me strongly of Ruskbyte's "Flying Without A Broom". It was quite funny, but when I read
Quote:
"You really need to get a new catch phrase," Poppy said in a sing song voice. "Looser."

"The conversation isn't about how much of a looser Severus is," Dumbledore said firmly.
I was left wondering. Is this an example of Dumbledore and Poppy not being familiar with slang, since it's done twice, or two typos?

Overall, 4/5

It seems to me that lots and lots of fics actually use the word 'Looser', when intending to use 'Loser'. Or 'loose' for 'lose'. It's a very common mistake.

"Stupidfie, looser.... Methinks that either his beta dropped him or else his account was hacked, cause there are spelling and grammer mistakes all over.
Ending was decent though, Worth a chuckle or two even if it does look like he was drunk and possibly high when he wrote the first half.

3.5/5

Most of the mis-spelling looked intentional, but he played it far to much.

I think Stupidfie was drunk Harry's version of Stupefy, since he didn't actually cast a spell afterwards, he just punched the person.

I thought it was worth a chuckle, not hilarious, but, like most of Rorschach's fics, definitely worth a read. 4/5

I just didn't find it amusing at all, honestly. It was on of the poorer things I've ever seen him write before. Mouth didn't even twitch. 1/5.

Heh, it was a fine oneshot. Typical Blot, some easy humor and chaos, ending up in a harem. Someone should really get him laid...

Like everyone said, it wasn't one of his best works. But I rate it 5/5 because I think that it is funny when you don't compare it to the author's other works, and it deserves a place in the library.

I agree with Lore. This made me laugh quite a bit. 5/5 from me.

Formulaic.

1/5

I really can't see why people find him funny.

I enjoyed it, but it's far funnier if you drink absinthe before reading it. I highly recommend it.
That said, I enjoy Blot's writing. 5/5

I would normally give this a 2/5, but it should not go into the library.
1/5

I give this a 1/5, because Rorschach just might be popular enough to get this fic into the library regardless of the quality of the actual story.

The title is pretty good though.

Eh, I give it a 2/5. Not nearly as good as his usual stuff, and I'm really starting to think the Blot's got a case of Dr. T-itus. Inferior in every way to Ruskybyte's story.

I hadn't even compared his story to Ruskbyte's. If I had, it would have given less than 1/5. Alas, that is impossible because of the review system. There are a plenty of writers technically better tha Rorschach. Rorschach excels at dialogue and plot, but his writing comes out as average.

I was looking for an excuse to get drunk, so I will make myself a glass of Absinthe and give this fic a try.

Will edit later for a review.


Edit: I have to admit that I was expecting better from this author but without comparing it to other fics by rorschach I would give this a 3/5
