    Just more evidence that buzzfeed caters to the lowest common denominator.

    13 misogynistic phrases that...

    1. What if 13 is my number?

    2.Good effort though, sugartits*. Maybe one day you'll be a real newsman.

    3. *At great personal risk I checked. I admit, phrase is inappropriate. But it was less inappropriate than dollface.

    Should I be proud or ashamed that I have never heard half of these stories?

    Relieved. Regardless of not reading it, no one can be proud that stuff like it was written. Just be relieved you haven't had to steel through those... stories.

    This list was actually how I discovered fanfiction. It certainly wasn't the most auspicious of introductions to the fandom but without it, I probably wouldn't have started searching for better stories and just remained ignorant towards the whole concept. I mean...Is it shit? Yes, but most fanfictions are and I'm actually happy that the morons at BuzzFeed wrote something semi-productive other than the usual 'What Carebear are You?' crap.

    What else would you expect, it's Buzzfeed? It's a complete shit-show.

    A shit-show with more snowflakes than the blizzard of '76.

    Or would that be a shit-storm?
    Flaky little shits?
    All of the above?

    Lol. "Very Bad Things by freudian fuckup" made the list. I think fuck up is an apt name for this list.

    Eh.

    At least
    the author was proud of it. A sentence like that just sticks in my craw somehow. Is it shit writing? Absolutely. Is there some person behind it who spent hours and hours behind a keyboard to do something that they liked and many people don’t have the balls to even start with? Yes to that, too. Another important question, are there people who enjoy it? Yes again. The list wouldn’t exist if it weren’t so.

    So what actually is the task of an artist? In so far you can even speak of them having to fulfill any kind of task, it would be to entertain and express themselves through whatever medium they wish to. If some people are entertained by it, all the better. So whoever wrote those stories checked those boxes in one way or another.

    Even if the writing isn’t up to our ivory tower standards (and I am glad for those standards) it wouldn’t hurt to acknowledge that an actual person invested a load of time into their story.

    It’s a shit list, but this hate train is ridiculous.

    Hate train? Meh, a bit hyperbolic, that. There's barely enough heat here, so far, to melt the most delicate of snowflakes. ;) (They are so very oversensitive, you see.)

    I'd say there's more hate for Buzzfeed in this thread than for the fanfic, and there's nothing ridiculous or unwarranted about that. I didn't even read the list, because I won't go to that site.

    Mental masturbation for midwits. MoR is for people who feel clever about the fact that by forcing every in world character to adhere to what amount to continuity errors, they themselves (vicariously through Harry) would be filthy rich geniuses.

    Hahahahahaha! An author writing a book for her own pleasure about a magical boarding school failed to account for real world gold markets and currency exchanges. What an idiot!

    They want books that don't create fantasy worlds, but reflect their own.

    I feel like this is some regular 4chan trolling here. Fanfic is a niche already, and you could arguably just pic 21 fanfics at random, call them the whatever your want, and people will believe it.


    I'm just kind of glad they didn't wade into the oddities of crossover fics....

    I'm not sure. Compared to Buzzfeed, even 4chan has standards.

    I feel guilty that I actually used to like H.J Potter for some time after which I got annoyed by any H/Hr fanfic.

    In a way it started my path towards the darker side of fanfiction.

    I couldn't make it past 5 chapters of Harry Crow.

    I've never read the rest of the recommendations.

    EDIT:I had read Dumbledore's Army and the years of Darkness but a long time back...

    A few thoughts about this, lovely, list.

    1. They categorized the Fics by Ship. Not by setting, not by main character(s), but by Ship.

    2. Not counting the 'No Pairing' category, a full half of the Ship categories (and almost half of the 21 stories) involve some combination of Harry, Hermione, and Draco. I'm half-surprised there wasn't a story dedicated to a polyamorous relationship between the three of them.

    3. Is Remus/Sirius a thing? I honestly can't recall encountering that Ship before.
