    My first evar romance fic!
    I made a few mild corrections to the one that's in the WBA section. I realize that HG fics aren't so much appreciated here, but give this one a chance.

    You got me wondering with your intention when you labeled this a 'H/G' story. It either had to be a major Ginny bashing or something way out there. This was clearly quite out there. Although, it seemed kinda plain and awkward to me at first, getting further in the story you had me laughing the whole time. I would rate it as at least a 4 out of 5 just for the major humor factor. It was a nice read for a somewhat boring day today was.

    Okay... that's fairly silly. It's not bad, really. I enjoy the little fourth wall breaking, although to be honest, it's not as funny as I'd hoped it might be. That's the first time I've seen HG like that - although I once read an interesting RL (Remus Lupin) story that also had a HHr (Harry Harry-reversedgender) pairing in it.

    You may just have some potential here.

    I'll call it 3/5.

    Didn't like it. 2/5 from me. I didn't really find it funny at all.

    3/5 from me. It's not laugh-out-loud funny, but more of a groan-funny.

    I was going to have this whole H/G story "Oh it's another Harry/Griphook story" joke going until I read it ... (shudder).

    I smiled. It wasn't enough to warrent an outright laugh, but decent.

    3/5

    I smiled a bit and chuckled at one part.

    I'll give it a 4/5, but only for the sheer originality of it. Especially since this is something that should have already been done many times over.

    Yeah, I sort of wrote it for the shock value and just to be the anticliche. It wasn't meant to be written as the best fic ever, because then I wouldn't be writing it.

    That being said, It made ME snicker.

    If you made a smut scene at the end, it would be the gem of all h/g stories. I would link it far and wide on h/g fan sites for great justice.

    I didn't find it funny. I did find it epic in its shock value though...

    So between 4 and 5 out of 5 for me.

    More like forced humor to me, but this made my day:

    <table class="myborder_no_bottom" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tbody><tr><td class="myborder_only_bottom" nowrap="nowrap" valign="top" width="1%">IamwhoIamnot
    2008-02-18
    ch 1, [​IMG]</td><td class="myborder_only_leftbottom" valign="top">abuseWtf is wrong with you!

    harry and ginny are meant to get together, so I dont see why "Ginny deserves death for all that fandom has overused an underdeveloped character." Shes not underdeveloped she played a huge role in chamber of secrets. And harry is really out of character, he didnt like goblins or wierd stuff like that in canon...

    Im not sure whether to report this or not!</td></tr></tbody></table>

    Uhh....wow. I didn't really expect that.

    That was super ultra cliche soap opera....featuring Harry and a goblin?

    3/5 for the hospital tube thing

    Made me laugh a little. What I did found really amusing was imagining the face of the foolish little fangirl reading this.... such horror, mmmmh, delicious, one more point just for having excited me.
    3/5

    This story makes me want to write a short multichapter story with the pairing as HG (where it leads the reader into thinking, 'When will Ginny show up?').

    Erm..........Okay.....Different, I suppose. Kind of bland, but almost amusing none-the-less
