    I see that this author has even more quality works.

    The one that I'd struggle with the most out of their stuff is the X-Men cross-over where Harry's mutant name is Arsenal. Purely because I'd never be able to read it without thinking about the football club.

    I struggle to understand the ideas of the author's stories. Or rather how a sane person could come up with them. There are FF writers, that mix a couple of tropes, connect them in the most basic way and call the result their story. Then there are those, who add or divert a bit from that plot to give their story a somewhat individual touch, which is completely acceptable. Lastly, there are stories based on unique ideas. These can either be satisfying and refreshing, the sort of stuff DLP is hunting for, or crazy and/or retarded. The FFs mentioned above fit into the latter category. Exclusively.

    That used to be my first reaction as well upon seeing a story (and a fav/follow count) like this. It’s either that, or they know exactly what they’re doing, which is ostensibly worse. Oh well, tastes differ.

    Speaking of…

    This one got a new summary (and was apparently reposted by the author) since it was last mentioned in the v7.0 thread. It is not an improvement.

    Gotta give it to them, some complete dedication to take it to that extent. I've seen that fic name floating around in lists for years at this point.

    You mean like one of these? Oh, that‘s some good stuff. Good stuff indeed. I mean, discounting the questionable grammar and formatting, the summary already gives away the pairing, premise, plot (because let’s be honest, this is not going to end in failure for Harry) and what would probably count as twists for this kind of story – Sirius and Remus getting over their dislike of Snape as they recognise he’s Harry‘s One True Love, presumably.

    Also, 235,000+ words and 3,375 favourites. I mean, come on.

    Yes, but I am pretty sure there is another story which misleads people.
    I had started reading the story without looking at the author's name and was feeling puzzled while doing so...

    Summaries may be accurate, but interpretations exist.

    I was thinking exactly that a few weeks ago.

    I wonder if blocking her will stop her stories from appearing in search?

    Its.. only two words. There was more story in the summary.

    But I guess that's the point.

    So I did a crawl through FFN recently to look for promising fics. Ended up finding mostly not-so-promising fics.


    The fic is actually worse than what te summary suggests.





    And then I found this gal, a true prolific master of fanfiction.


    And that's only a fraction of her ongoing fics. It's incredible.

    Regarding betrayal fics, it's not just Pokemon or Harry Potter. Unfortunately, while HP has a lot of diverse tropes, Pokemon is limited to two: Betrayed!Ash and Aura!Smart!OP!Ash >.< May or may not include harem, multi or/and many legendary pokemon.
