    I don't know, the summary seems to adequately describe the story, at least for my purposes. I know I don't want to read it.

    What if the abuse hardened Harry instead of braking him. Slytherin, grey, smarter, defensive Harry. Arrogant Snape. Crazy manipulative Dumbledore.

    I read that as 'baking him', was very confused.

    That's why I use scryer to hide the garbage. Best feature ever.

    I'm still confused. How does someone make another person brake?

    I think it's meant to be 'break' but they can't English.

    Not necessarily horrible but I still feel the need to add this.

    Harry Potter and Forgotten Twin
    By: Sheltie1267
    This is fanfic is completely AU. It features Alive!James and Lily, Independent!Grey!Harry, Confident!Neville, and Young!Tonks. The pairings are as follows: Harry/Tonks, Neville/Hermione, and James/OC (Lily and James get divorced) Read it if you want to. Just no hateful reviews. Thank you!

    No huge spelling errors, but rather the fact that it really doesn't tell me what the story's about. The summary of the Philosopher's Stone might as well be 'a kid named Harry goes to a school and makes friends. Here are some of their characteristics, these are the pairings, and plz don't be mean to me! -JK'

    Look at the top bar of DLP's page. It is a search engine.

    I think it's a perfectly serviceable summary. It tells you exactly what the story is about: nothing. Like most fanfic, it's unlikely to have a plot.

    a really good one, btw. Tons of fandoms and our benevolent not at all murderous@Lord Ravenclaw adds other fandoms at request. you can filter based on summary terms (i.e. put -bashing or -dumbles or -manipulative or any other Red Flag) or words, or pairing, or classification (i.e. -angst)

    Potter's pets!
    By: Clovergirl18
    Harry Potter has always been an unusual boy. Dumbledore has big plans for Harry. But Dumbledore has never expected Harry to have a variety of pets. Naru the black green eyed cat, Hedwig the black and white amber eyed cat, Ren the dragon, Shadow the black and gray mist wolf, Yuki the white six tailed fox, and Alex the light yellow nine tailed fox.

    Dude you've gotta stop. All these summaries are perfectly fine, they're just summarizing shit stories.

    That's what's been posted in this thread for years. You'll have to forgive the new member for picking up on the trend and following it.

    Admittedly that summary is pretty much a dumpster fire.

    The summary doesn't mention that the literal first scene in the fic is the magical cat eating the Dursleys, I feel like thats something notable enough to mention in the summary.
