    Any parent who calls their child “Thorax” should have child protective services knocking at their door in the immediate future.

    Coming to think of it, that one counts for “Mosag” as well.

    That's actually MLP import character, and I think that the protagonist is supposed to be their queen (or is a queen of another special race) who keeps loli looks despite being 218 and then teleports to HP-verse to become Snape's daughter.

    Why would a 218 old queen teleport to HP-verse to become Snape´s daughter? Why would anyone?

    Thanks for the explanation. That’s an… interesting backstory for sure. I have absolutely no clue about MLP, so I’m just going to accept it.

    Oh boy, you can tell a story will be good when it has cussing Harry in it.

    The Shock of it All by Fairywm reviews
    A freak potion accident renders our hero without memory of who he is. Watch as the new Harry takes Hogwarts by storm. No one is going to tell him what to do. AU 4th year. Super!Unfettered!Cussing!Harry. Some bashing, but not stupidly so. Not a crossover, but with a lot of Sci-fi references. Harry's a bit of an ass.

    The better question, is how could someone write 211k words of that shit.

    You'd be surprised. The longest work of fiction in human history is a Super Smash Bros Brawl fic that's straight up garbage.

    211k words is nothing. There is an ultra trashy and still ongoing fanfic for KanColle - Ambience: A Fleet Symphony that has 4.5 million words and 400 thousands in spin-offs.

    And I thought the RWBY Fandom being taken over by 400k+ snorefests was bad. For some reason fanfics seem obsessed with being incredibly long; a while ago I thought it had to do with the serial format, but the Three Musketeers (the only book I have on me that was published serially) looks to be only just over 200,000 words at worst.

    Didn't the author of that say he started writing it to improve his English?

    It's quite a huge leap from writing fanfiction to practice a foreign language to writing the longest piece of literature known to mankind.

    He did, but there are entire chapters that are just copy/paste dumps.

    Title: The Road Not Taken

    Link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10525216/1/The-Road-Not-Taken

    Summary: There are always moments that can change a story dramatically, in small or large ways. Here, we choose the road not taken, the road less travelled... and

    that will make all the difference. Here, we follow the story of 'what might have been'. (Harry befriends someone in Diagon Alley and it changes his life.

    Neville-Harry friendship. Sort of a self-insert but not really?) SEQUEL UP

    Nope, not seeing that is wrong with that summary.

    It’s vague as hell, for starters. The first part consists of banal generalities, and doesn’t really say anything except “This is not canon,” which should be obvious. In the second part we finally learn that the story diverges when Harry meets Neville in Diagon Alley, which is useful, apart from the summary then safeguarding with the “Self-insert but not” line. Either it’s a self insert or it isn’t. If it is, just say so! What we’re left with is a summary which has an abundance of useless cliches, (“The road not taken, the road less traveled”), and a severe lack of useful information. Basically, there’s no substance.

    It's still better than probably 95% of the summaries on this thread though. Not because it's any good, because it isn't, but because a very low bar has been set in regards to the 'worst'.

    That's like every trash Pokemon trope rolled in to one summary. All that's missing is Ash's friends betraying him other than the love interest.

    Thought I'd check out fanfiction.net for the first time in years. This was one of the first stories I came across...

    Champion Veela by HotchnerReid Fangirl reviews
    Snape is an Alpha Veela, and Harry is his submissive mate. Competing in the Tri-Wizard Tournament marks him as an adult, and he gets his creature inheritance much sooner than normal. Snape tries to avoid his mate at first. Abused, innocent, sweet Harry (OOC). Non-canon. Good Malfoy's. Slash. Spanking. Snape/Harry. Remus/Sirius. Protective twins. Big brother Draco. De-aged.
