    So, I finally got round to reading/skimming Cursed Child and as expected I hated it. There's been plenty of discussion on the script so I'll skip that for now.

    Are there any fix-it fics for this steaming pile of dog shit? Preferably no bashing of Ron, Dumbledore or Ginny.

    And I don't mean fix-it fics where Harry ends up with Hermione or Daphne or where Albus is actually a product of an affair that Ginny had with Malfoy or some other BS.

    Literally any story that turns Cursed Child into something that gels with what we know of the characters from the Original would be welcome. Maybe a fic where Harry didn't turn into a complete shitty excuse for a father and can actually soundly trounce a teenage girl with daddy issues.

    Heck, I'd even be satisfied with a story where a character points out all the stupid stuff (Scorpius being Astoria's and Voldemort's child?).

    At this point, I'd even take one of those "Reading the books" stories as long as the readers acknowledge the incredulity of the actions that happen in the story.

    He is actually Draco's and Astroia's son but for some reason everyone thinks he's Voldemort's.

    A person in the real world goes back in time to prevent The Cursed Child from ever being released, but is opposed by a deadly robot also sent from the future.

    In all seriousness, so much of what I've heard about Cursed Child sounds so much like the worst kind of fanfic that I don't think it's even worth trying to fix, and I have no clue where someone would even begin if they were to try. It'd have to be pretty much a complete rewrite going far beyond what could rightly be called fix-it.

    It's the girl that's Voldemort kid. Dolphin girl or whatever her name is. And Bellatrix is her mother.

    Anyway, you know how the saying goes. You can polish a turd, but... Actually, some turds aren't worth the attempt.

    There is a popular novelisation of Cursed Child that attempted to flesh out the play. It didn't change much stuff from the play itself, but added context and attempted to make sense of it all --

    This isn't a recommendation (I haven't read the story), but I've seen it recommended now and again, so putting it out there.

    How could anybody believe that, given that he is eleven years old nineteen years after Voldemort dies?
