    To be blunt. I think this sucks.

    For one I hate and almost always avoid first person POVs, second it seems to be written rather horribly, well in my opinion anyways. {might have something to do with my finding almost everything on Aff to be so}

    And whats the fuck with this!
    Cradle robber

    But this is the main reason.
    things like this happen a lot on Aff and sometimes whole paragraghs come out looking like it was writen by a retarded monkey on speed.

    And just overall stupid scenes
    How the hell can you spot someone looking inconspicuous?

    Terrible spelling, it's obvious the author didn't even bother to re-read it. Lazyness like that is enough to turn me off a story. If it wasn't for that, a lot of stuff didn't make sense. Mediocre at most

    Err...I can't help but think that the spelling is NOT because of the AFFnet format.

    I uploaded Incubus to AFFnet a day or two ago...It looks fine. I had to make no edits, there were no spelling errors...no errors caused by formatting.

    This story was bland, but I liked the smut. It wasn't great, but it was good enough. Some things were weird, like the 'non-magic-aided' ability to keep on banging, but hell...its PWP.

    If you can ignore the spelling errors and the odd glitches, its worth a read. Not recommended, but I won't dissuade you either.

    I agree with Yarrgh!. If you want to read plain smut, it's OK (not really good, though), but if you want some story forget about this.

    To be honest I didn't like it much. Spelling was bad and I cannot stand 1st person pov.

    average smut,awfull story plus I also hate 1st person pov
     
  10. I absolutely loved this story.:)
    It was written in such a way that it made me continue reading it.
    It was marvolous.:D
    The spelling errors are not the fault of the author. The site itself tries to translate the format, and therefore sometime messes up the spelling. So, all those who insulted the author for being lazy or carless in reguards to spelling and editing, should apologize.

    Heather, I like your story as did four of my other siblings. Congratulations!:)

    Why? Because, my friend, he pounds Tonks into oblivian. The right way.

    It's just a guilty pleasure, really.

    Smut. That's it.

    Not that i mind, of course. That's why i read it, but it's written in a sketchy teeniebopper-style that bugs me a bit. There are no trace elements of realism at all. As far as entertainment smut goes, it's really OK, since it's not really supposed to be realistic. Some plot wouldn't be amiss, though.

    Every time i try to write myself, i turn out stuff like this. Then i delete it.

    If your looking for a first person POV fic to change your mind on their quality, try reading "bungle in the jungle"- by jbern. Its what I would have a refer to as my ideally done first person POV fic. Real quality writing.
    Its at http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2889350/1/

    theres also a forum on it here on dlp as well. http://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=1629

    First of all: Why would you do this?

    Second: Jbern's Bungle in the Jungle is not First Person point of view, it's Second Person point of view.

    Mediocore smut. Absolutely no plot. Romance is totally unrealistic (hell, practically everything is unrealistic) And, of course, metamorphomagus!sex-god!Harry made me sick.

    I won't say it's a good fic... In point of fact, calling it mediocre is charitable. That said, I confess, I'm a huge fan of craddle-robber!Tonks, and if I've a craving for it, this at least does the job. Still I prefer Scion of Gryffindor or Summer of Change.
