    A well written one-shot, that I found to be quite funny. I normally avoid one shots, but this one had me chuckling for quite some time.

    Heh. The whole idea of Harry/Squid is a bit disturbing, but it's funny overall. 4/5.

    Hey, it's funny but it's nowhere disturbing or freaky. The disturbing parts aren't mentioned at all. You all should scourgify your dirty mind!

    Well, there are some disturbing fics out there ... I once saw a McGonagall/Crookshanks pairing ... and Padfoot impregnating some stylish poodle ... that was disturbing ...

    Back to Ishtar: The plotbunny has great potential. Anyone remembers the power the Dark Lord knows not?

    ....That was a waste of my time.

    It features:

    Happy Harry.

    Nonsubtle references.

    Batshit weird ideas about Squid culture (Atlantis?).

    802 words total.

    I don't mind length at all, but if you're going to write comedy, it should deliver.

    This didn't.

    2/5 for not destroying the English language.

    From the IRC:

    <xiph0>Xiph0: "Hermione peered into the bucket. "Harry, it's a … squid? A little one. But it has green eyes. They practically light up. So those …" "
    <xiph0>Xiph0: OMG LOL!
    <xiph0>Xiph0: I WONDER WUT HAPPENEDEDED?
    <xiph0>Xiph0: [/sargasm]
    <linked_up>LINKed_up: LOL
    <mrmucus[lurk]>MrMucus: ^ should post that
    <xiph0>Xiph0: Will :D</xiph0></mrmucus[lurk]></linked_up></xiph0></xiph0></xiph0></xiph0>

    1/5 for not being a horror and no squid/females.

    Eh ... this is crap.

    It's not really bestiality. It's not particularly funny. It's not really anything but a waste of time, imo.

    1/5

    This is not supposed to be beastiality, it's supposed to be a humorous drabble, and in that regard, I think it succeeds.

    I'll have to agree with Xiph on this. It fails to deliver.
