    Don't you just love cryptic summaries that tell you nothing about the story?

    Of course I do. The more cryptic a summary, the more interest is generated in reading the story. :awesome

    Converting the bookworm by adstyle17 reviews
    'I am a lesbian. Not a lot of people know, they just don't ask. The people that do are my so called 'clients'. Confused? Let me explain. I am not just a lesbian, I'm a converter. Yes, a converter. A person who uses complicated and effective ways to change a woman's view on sexuality. In short, they turn from straight to gay.' but Hermione, that's a challenge.Femslash.

    Lets see if I can figure these out. In order: Naricssa/Snape, OC/Harry, Malfoy/Astoria, Lupin/OC, Cedic/OC, Sirius/OC, ??/??, ??/??, ??/OC, ??/OC, ??/??, ??/??.

    Yeah, I got no clue.

    What I think:
    NM/SS = Narcissa M./S. Snape
    OC (Kitty)/HP = OC/Harry P.
    DM/AG = Draco M./Astoria G.
    RL/OC = Remus L./OC
    CD/OC = Cedric D./OC
    SB/OC (Cara) = Sirius B./OC
    DR/DC = Demelza R.(or Delphi Riddle)/Dennis C.(or Dirk C.)
    DC/GP = Dennis C./Gideon P.
    DR/OC = Demelza R.(or Delphi Riddle)/OC
    SM/OC = Scorpius M./OC
    CC/CM = Colin Creevey/Cormac McLaggen

    Wouldn't that last one more likely be Cho Chang/Cormac MacLaggan?

    Now that is what I call impressive. Best bits: "St. Mango's" (a mental image of an anthropomorphic mango in scrubs with a halo came to mind), and "Language: English," which I would call a gross overestimation of the writer's actual command of the language.

    Admittedly, though, the concept of "Witch Milk" sounds intriguing, and I am now actually wondering how one would go about harvesting such a thing…

    Also, this. Found by scrolling through the default story list on ff.net, which should really say it all…


    The Hogwarts Heir by writefan
    After Harry rescues the Philosofer's stone, Dumbledore won't speak with him and asks Ron and Hermione not to speak with him about it. This starts to raise questions and from there one thing leads to another. In the mean time Harry must live with his abusive relatives. This story contains abusive Dudleys and manipulative Dumbledore and will have an soul-bond later.

    It ticks all the boxes! A story title that pretty much spells out the plot, an interesting new way to spell "philosopher," an abandoned Harry, mysterious "questions" with "one thing [leading] to another, "abusive Dudleys" – for simplicity's sake I'm just going to assume that Petunia had identical twins and named them both Dudley – a "manipulative Dumbledore" and, as the crowning piece, "an" soul bond. Very Clarksonesque! Going by the way the character tags are sorted, it could even be a soul bond between Harry and Ron? You have to read to find out!
