    Well someone had to do it.

    Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by Jack Thorne

    It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.
    While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

    Video game plot? I don't think I remember Harry being raped by Vernon in any of the HP games.

    Ok, so this isn't the usual, utterly trash story found in this thread, but I thought it was worth a mention:

    Why? Because it tells me almost zero about the story whatsoever. Things change? Well it wouldn't be much of a story if everything stayed the same.

    I suppose it could make a decent tagline, or the first sentence of a summary, but on its own it is woefully inadequate.

    A Potion to Turn Back Time by RommiCat reviews
    In an attempt to turn Umbridge into a child to save the school, the Golden Trio picks a test subject of equal distaste. Severus Snape. Set in OotP, and hints od abuse/childhood trauma.
    Rated: T - English - Family/Hurt/Comfort - Chapters: 1 - Words: 1,010 - Reviews: 1 - Favs: 1 - Follows: 3 - Published: 3h ago

    Because turning Umbridge into a child - fuck. I won't bother. The premise speaks for itself.

    I'll never understand these people who follow and fave this stuff. Are they first time fiction readers or are they just so hard up for something to read that they will read anything?

    Well, I'm just reading a fic with 1,6k favs which has an accidental baby animagus and smirking Dumbledore.

    And reviews include: "I hate Dumbles too" and "well, for animagus transformation you need stabilised magical core…"

    So, there. "These people".

    Sumerys Targaryen, first of his name. King of bad Authors and the first posters. Protecter of FFN, and Khaleesi by way of mpreg...


    The author knows how to use capitals in one summary, but not in the other. And the one with capitals came first. How is that even possible? Did all their shift keys break?

    Yeah, pity it wasn't the author's intention. There was this crack fic that Snape became a ghost and ended up haunting Harry and Ginny that was actually pretty good. Who knows, maybe someone can actually make Snape turned into a child work.

    You know, every time I read this line about how "it was always difficult being Harry Potter" and (line from the Cursed Child spoilers)
    "it is exceptionally lonely being Draco Malfoy"
    all I can think of is this. It makes it about a thousand times more cringeworthy.

    I thought this was crack. It's not.
