    i disagree with that...


    rabid dogs are too nice... we need something more vicious.. Ginny perhaps...or a nice rubber mallet to pound them into dust... something thatll take a LONG time and HURT alot...then we can feed them to rabid dogs...

    How about death by blood loss through the means of papercuts to sensitive areas of the body such as genitals, toes, fingers, tongue, and eyeballs?

    In my own fic Ginny is going to have a painful death :)


    Ironically enough at the hands of either Neville or Professor Sprout.

    Who could have guessed that Herbology could turn deadly?

    Heh. I'm reading a Post-HBP Harry/Hermione story and its pretty funny with the catfights going on between Hermione and Ginny. Hermione's calling her some awesome names, lol.

    A one trick pony is definitely what Ginny is. That stupid bat-bogie hex.

    i want to read your story, ginny is the most overrated character in the story. first girl harry meets and now he "loves" her? i thought jkr had more imagination than that, i understand that harry needs a tough woman but i guess i was hoping for someone a little less known like a susan or a katie. But i guess you set yourself up for disappointment with high expectations, don't get me wrong i loved hbp but i was hoping for some originality.

    Uh, they're all over the place:

    General storyline is a dark or independant Harry tells off Dumbledore, and Ron (sometimes Hermione) gets training to keep an eye on Harry, or keep Harry out of trouble, and turns into a powerful, stuck up asshole.

    Here is one I absolutely loathe.

    When fanfics are written as screenplays.

    My main problem is that they do not know how to do it right. The only time I could stand it is by Shakespeare after I acclimate myself to the language used. The authors that right it like this do not understand that since very little narration is used in this format that all the imagery the readers have is what the characters say. But, they do not do that and so I feel like I am a blind person watching a movie, not getting the whole picture and so cannot enjoy the fic fully.

    Basically they are writing like its a screenplay of a movie or TV show where the scenery will be filmed later and not like the screenplay of a play where the props and backgrounds are limited if not nonexistent and it just ruins whatever they are trying to do.

    If you're talking about script format, I agree completely. It's just laziness on the part of the author, pure and simple.

    If done correctly like as a play or as an oral tradition it is very good, but I have not seen anyone who could do it right.

    i love it when all of harry's friends get trained behind his back and then the trainer, usually mad eye, says its a waste of time and their skills barely hint at talent and they would rather train harry.

    All the while, Harry trains and Ron tries to take him on, but has his ass handed to him.

    The point is he should, which is why people write it.
