haha, this was funny. The one scenario that makes Albus Severus an acceptable name.

5/5. This is practically the only acceptable order of events that could justify the prologue.

The author did a great job at maing the story genuinely funny as opposed to many I have read where they attempt to be funny and really miss the mark. I am feeling a bit sorry for Snape though, having to be stuck with those two and their children. What a sad afterlife.

I read it after @Stan mentioned it here: https://forums.darklordpotter.net/sh...582#post808582

It was okish and works as a oneshot, but I didn't actually laught out reading it.

3/5

Well, I guess comedy is subjective, because I've read this one at least half a dozen times and I still crack up whenever I read it. Between this, Gossip Queens and The Desk, Opalish is the King/Queen of crack one-shots. I like this one the best, but perhaps that's because it makes fun of the epilogue names. And Ghost!Snape. Really, how can anything beat 'Unca Snapey'?

Scorpius Malfoy and the the improbable plot by the same author also has some hilarious moments and makes fun of the epilogue names as well ("Ginny Potter is a stupid name, anyway. Almost as stupid as the names you insisted we give our poor children,"--"Well, it was better than naming them Humphrey, Mudd, and Giggles!"--"Shut up, Harry, those are classic names from quality literature!"--"Martin the Mad Muggle is not quality literature!"). I love Opalish -- its a real shame he/she no longer writes fanfiction.

I think this is really funny, but at the same time, it's the kind of humor that's not really situational, it's more about the dialogue and the beats, and that kind of humor is more subjective than other kinds. Same reason I find Tom Stoppard or Christopher Moore hilarious and some people just shrug and say, "meh, it was okay."

I really, really like the comedic timing here, for example:
Quote:
"You're an evil, evil woman," Snape said coolly. "Very well. I concede, name the brat whatever you wish, I'll comment no more."

"Right," Harry said, eyeing them both oddly. "So-not Wendell Ivanhoe, I'd say, not that it's not a, a nice name, but-"

"Oh, I wasn't joking," Ginny said cheerfully. "James Sirius will do quite well."

Snape tried to bang his head against the wall, but it went right through.

Harry cleared his throat. "I don't suppose I get a say-"

"No," Ginny said.
And here:
Quote:
Ginny glared. "Well," she snapped, "do either of you have any better ideas?"

"I was thinking, maybe Albus," Harry said, jiggling James a bit in his arms. James giggled happily, then pulled a horrible face at Snape, who gazed back with utter hatred in his eyes.

"Your spawn is evil and must die. Drown it before it turns on us all with destructive, murderous rage."

"Be nice," Harry admonished absently.
Anyway. One of my favorite comedy one-shots. Easy 5/5.

This tickled my funny bone quite efficiently. Never read Snape-the-Ghost and was quite happy to do so. Definitely a nice 5 minute diversion. 5/5

It was O.K. for a crack tic but honestly I don't feel it was that funny. Sort of sad on Snape's part staying as a ghost with his mortal enemies son. 3/5
