    The magic trunks, who could forget the amazing trunks that can do anything, it started with RossWrock (at least I think it did) and now they are in nearly every clichè story out there.

    Or random resorting.

    Or Lily is a daughter of a squib and in reality the heiress of Voldemort/Grindelwald/Slytherin and many more.

    Mostly, but the peeves topic went off topic, besides, we might see something new, and it allows me to vent my anger after browsing some fics.

    And here we can gather the clichès so that coming Author's can see what not to do.

    I know this story it's great. (Eppy is just plain evil)
    Another clichè Harry becomes a god and then does nothing but worship Ginny.

    Example of that one is that Archmages story. He comes back something like 3000 years old, yet acts like a moron with Ginny...THEN CLICHE #2, he goes back to Hogwarts...what the fuck? Unless hes going to be a teacher, then screw Hogwarts.

    This was covered in peeves, but where Ginny starts beating up on him and he doesn't slap her back.

    Hmmm then what's with Harry comes back to school and sees Herman in a different light, because she matured (meaning from "oh you're a girl" to "sexiest girl in Hogwarts").

    Cliche: Ginny saying she understands what it's like to have Voldemort in her "head" since she wrote in the diary.

    A)she doesn't fucking remember any of it, just randomly waking up in strange places

    B)how the hell is point A comparable to Harry having to deal with feeling the guy's mood swings?

    C)Ginny still breathing, period.

    But yet she's not a whore because none of them ever touched her "special place" she was saving for Harry, and he always gets with her.

    I'm sorry, but if my girl has sucked off half the school, I don't give a flying fug if she's wonderful, a technical virgin, AND smart to boot, I aint trying to be with the school's Hoover vaccum.
