    Title: Shake Me!
    Author: RoxieSnape
    Rating: M/R/NC-17
    Genre: General/Drama
    Pairing: Harry/OC - NO slash
    Chapters: 35
    Words: 211,862 / 238,730 (txt / Ficwad)

    Status: Complete
    Summary: AU Harry disappears ten years ago, from his relatives. When he comes back he is not the innocent boy everyone knows. The Boy Who Lived, grew up differently than anyone would have imagined. He's not the goody goody way to polite boy from Number Four, he's a sarcastic, arrogant little twit, who has love deep down and wants to be loved. But can he open up to anyone around him? And what happens when Dumbledore finds him and wants him back? There will be multiple shippers. Harry will not be with one person only, not till the end of my story anyway.

    This is an AMAZING fic. Seriously, if you haven't read, it then read it. This is one of the best fics I have read, even better than Shezza's stuff imo. Harry is such a player and a badass!

    This is a great fic. It gets a little crappy 2/3's of the way through for a few chapters, but then it picks up again. I really like this fic.

    GOOD CALL, MASTER SLYTHERIN! :D

    I didn't like it, to be honest. First, I find the idea of Harry in bloody Hufflepuff to be repugnant, regardless of the reasoning behind it. Second, that damned fucking baby of his. Pointless, and a source for ridiculous amounts of filler material that made it rather obvious to me that the author had nothing better to write about. Third, the presence of more Harry/Hermione than I like to stomach, even if they didn't work out in the end. Add in some rather unsubtle Cho bashing, and you have a formula for an LT2000 bitch rant. Story had some good points here and there, but it just never really had anything truly outstanding to make up for all the negatives.

    I thought him being in Hufflepuff was hilarious! The H/Hr was a bit shit. I thought the build up to the baby was good with the girl dying but the baby wasn't thaaat bad.

    What I want to know is how she got away with the sex scenes when many others were much less intense.

    The story was OK, although sometimes a wee bit strange.

    Aye, Hufflepuff might be good for a laugh, but I don't think it really works in a serious fic like this. And I find that more highly acclaimed fics tend to get away with the ecchi more easily. I still can't believe sometimes that Prince of Darkness hasn't been deleted yet. The exception to that rule seemingly being poor Shezza, whose gotten axed for explicit content on more than one occasion if memory serves.

    I didn't like like the fact that Harry had a kid. But other than that I love it. Harry sleeping with Justin's sister is classic....

    yeah we've discussed this in some other thread I think, and we both agreed.

    Sticking him in Hufflepuff, and making him everything a Hufflepuff "isnt" was retarded.

    The baby bit got on my nerves, I cannot stand filler material at all, so much more the author could of used.

    And I think I've seen enough of the "arrogant ragamuffin who just wants to be loved"bit to vomit up blood, I'd rather have the "kill em all" Harry, at least then he doesn't come off cool one moment, then like a bitch the next

    This story annoyed me to no end.

    It had so much potential... Which all got promptly pissed down the drain. The baby was important to the story, but I would rather have the fucking thing die with its much and an angry Harry who wants vengeance.

    FF.net are really annoying. I mean seriously, with all the slash on there why axe the few good Het stories that have just a small fraction.

    LT2000: Don't worry about your story getting axed. Your content isn't that bad in comparison to all the other ones.... Plus it is pretty popular.

    I think you can't get worse than some Slash stories and those never get deleted

    Do you think that some of the mods are female slash lovers and that is why they tend to not delete slash?

    Don't even try to understand the admins over at fanfic.

    I checked this story out again (I read a LONG time ago) and I hated that moment after he kills the people who MURDERED the mother of his child, and Harry's like, "How could I do such a thing? I am as bad as Voldemort. What has become of me?"

    From that point on it was down hill only getting better towards the end. THis story could have been A LOT better. Could have done without the Harry Hermione also.
