    H--okayyyy.....

    Where do I start? Basically if you followed Ranma ½ at any point in the past on the RAAC you've probably already heard of Doghead Thirteen and his series 'Biker One Half' which put the Ranma ½ series into a blender, add werewolves and Scottish bikers (for no apparent reason) and put the whole thing on purree. If you haven't and are a Ranma ½ fan I highly recommend you give it a shot. It's a sick story that'll have you rolling at its unintentional gaffes and on the edge of your seat wanting to know what he'll pull next....

    Now imagine him giving that same treatment to the Harry Potter series...

    Now Add back Ranma ½...

    Then stir in the X-men, Warhammer, Sailor Moon, and Ah My Goddess...

    Now sprinkle some Star Wars, Transformers and a bit of :hbp
    involving a universe that allows for megacrossovers and an ongoing war between bad and worse ...opps wait, not THAT half baked plot...

    Are you beginning to get a feel for the insanity yet? But wait there's more, if you start reading now, we can add in a HEUG disclaimer that takes up half the fic on the first chapter, (more of a prologue than anything else...)


    LOL...I've only read the first chapter and I'm raring for more because this guy is so sick he always manages to make whatever series he tackles seem new for awhile, so I'm eager to get back to it--I just had to tell you about it first!

    My God, this guy is out of his mind. I love it. It's great. Completely mad. I wish I was a mad, hippie, stoner biker.

    This must be one of those stories you have to 'just get', cause I don't.

    I'm so with that. For the people that get this, it might be a good story. For me, a person that just doesn't get it, it still wasn't bad. I just probably missed half the main points of the story thats all. 2.5/5

    I have just found this story now, and it's actually an interesting crack-fic. The author doesn't give a damn about reviews, and just writes for fun. It shows.

    The negatives: Abused Harry. Friends with Hermione and (Sort of) Ron. What-the-fuck crossovers. Sith Harry. Super harry. HP universe fucked up beyond recognition. Lots of technobabble. Lots of OCs.
    The positives: What-the-fuck crossovers. Psychotically insane Harry. He kills people. Dursley abuse makes sense. Complete. Good Grammar/Spelling. Original plot.

    It's worth a read if you have nothing else to read.

    And using Lavender as a sex-toy I haven't really seen before.

    I agree. I've never read half the stories that is crossed over with this, but it's fun.

    I don't actually think that there is anything not crossed with this. If I don't see something mentioned, I still assume that it is in there and just doesn't get any air time.

    4/5

    It's very well written for so many crossovers. It's very humorous. I liked it. 4/5 for me.

    Edit: I felt like editing this. I'm around chapter 10 at the moment. I really like the story, despite it being with so many crossovers. And the chapters are pretty long, and very well written. I haven't noticed any spelling mistakes either. Of course, it also has apostrophe's up the wazoo, more than you can count. In any case, I change my rating from a 4 to a 4.7. It has long chapters (which I really like stories having). Good find, definitely should be in the library, in my honest opinion, although other people are going to think differently.

    If you can roll with the insanity, then this fic is good. Otherwise, it's not good. What I like is that the guy is plainly writing for fun, and doesn't let simple things like "continuity" or "reader reviews" get in the way of whatever he wants to do.

    4/5 for me, but most people would probably give it 2/5.

    In all honesty, I am now addicted. It's hilarious and well written, the author cracks me up, and I like how Harry is NOT the most powerful being in the universe--its a welcome change.

    5/5

    I recently discovered Doghead's stuff, and I have to say, the levels of enjoyment I get out of it are ridiculous. It's a badass Super!Independent!Sociopathic!Gun-wielding!Assassin!Sith!manwhore!Harry... who is by no means the most powerful being in his universe, and in fact spends about half of his time trying to fix epic fuck-ups that other people have perpetuated and paid him to fix... this is not a Harry who does a lot out of the goodness of his twisted heart, and goddamn if he doesn't work. Add to this that I don't think I've read a better executed crossover universe, and I have to give this a solid 5/5.

    okay, i honestly missed this stuff even if i read something by Doghead Thirteen a while ago.
    Now i can understand why some people say this is shit, but honestly if you enjoy the way he writes parody (and that is strictly a matter of taste) you'll get at least an evening full of laughs out of this.

    If you don't enjoy over the top parodies then stay far away because this will have you foaming at the mouth :p

    I can see how it would be popular, it follows the wildly popular method of loading the protagonist with endless things the author sees as "awesome" and then having them "pwn" any characters the author dislikes (who will of couse be quite out of character in order to make "bashing" them easier).

    Sadly, as I did not find myself imagining myself as Harry the story did not have me squeling about how awesome I am and how much I "pwn" everyone, it was simply a pain to read, especially the technobabble, honostly that stuff was just horrible.

    I'm happy for anyone who 'gets' this as it seems they have great fun, but I sadly just can't see it.

    It took me several google searches and some hard thinking; (I've just got back from an aftrer ball party) But I finally 'got' enough of it to laugh myself silly over.
    Excellent grammar, spelling and a good sense of showmanship, I felt it read like he was performing it as a monologue which is unique as far as I am aware.
    For what I understood - 5/5

    too many unless you are a true geek.
    One good thing is that he "tries" to explain the crossovers to some extent in the conversations, but even i (who has been addicted to sci-fi for nearly 20 years now) don't understand every reference, some of them are simply too obscure for the normal person.

    As i said, you either take those things in stride, or you might as well not read it.

    I think its brilliant, I spend more time choking on my water while trying to drink and to read at the same time than ever before...
    Well, the only story that tops this one in hilarious insanity and fun is 'Make A Wish', but that is pretty damn near impossible to beat.
    I give it a 4.9
