    I remember reading HP and the GWL by SilverAegis back then which had HP transported to an AU world where he mentors the AU Fem!Harry. I think that started the whole Fem!Harry genre.

    Can you name fanfics which started tropes on its own?

    The glamour shot profile pic was reason enough.

    He also had a raging hate boner for GRR Martin and sure liked to let everyone know it lol. Like if you hate GoT/HotD/think Martin is a knob for not releasing a new asoiaf book for a decade- cool, those are all fair reasons. Just weird to post about it multiple times in multiple threads.

    Why is it that the new people who post the most always are the ones that should post less?

    He was also posting shit that was blatantly untrue, and then saying 'Well I didn't read/watch' the thing I linked" as an excuse.

    Given how much this website has slowed down and how little new content is posted lately, I would hope the ban was for a rule violation and not just for being annoying.

    Regarding the topic posed: I'm not sure I could actually name stories that started tropes, especially since it's probably been a decade and a half since I read them.

    All the tropes I remember are things that I now consider pretty lame:
    magical animagus,
    male veela,
    Harry sent to Azkaban only to then get released when everyone realizes they need him to kill Voldemort (setting Harry up to bash everyone),
    wrong boy-who-lived,
    Peggy Sue,
    government mandated marriages between people who hate each other,
    inherited non-optional marriage contracts,
    super patronuses that kill dementors,
    having literally everyone be in a giant conspiracy to fuck over Harry,
    soul bonds,
    friendly goblins,
    Americans having fused magic and technology,
    having Harry get Voldemort's memories or knowledge,
    Harry getting super powers from mixing basilisk venom and phoenix tears in his blood,
    super house-elves,
    clinically retarded Ron,
    etc, etc.

    There's another user on the platform with the same profile picture isn't there? I didn't even realise that Lucius was new.

    Earl of the North (2005) and Lord of Caer Azkaban (2004) seem to be the originators of the 'Harry is Lord of Azkaban' trope.

    It was a trope that never took off, but was an interesting twist on the 'Harry goes to Azkaban' idea.
