    I'm digging Pokemon again but the lack of decent stories out there means trawling through the pages of utter shit is a common task, the sort of which makes you question life.

    "Okay. I can explain. See, on tumblr, I hitched my online brand to Lucario via Lucario chatposts (kinda like the ones I made for the gay dads au, except with me and lucario and before I did those ones). People enjoyed them, I did more of them, they started implying I might have a thing for lucario and, well, once you speak a thing into existence.... So yeah, technically it's a self insert/lucario but I couldn't find a tag for that and if I say LucarioxReader, you can pretend it's YOU lucario is being intimate with and share the shame and guilt with me. Some pet play, some light bdsm because even though i'm not into the scene it's still kinda neat. i wouldn't do it with a real dude, cause i don't trust like that, not anymore, but hey with a telepathic dog who hugs back and can fuck? why not."

    What the ever loving fuck.

    Everythings a meme anymore. Can't tell if serious or not -- a fine line which leads to insanity.

    "Hi guys this is my first story and this story I'm not sure with the rating so it may change may continue if it is liked but onto the summery. what if..."

    "Hi guys this is my first story and..." is already enough to know it's going to be shit, though.

    I hate that word on principle, the repetition really elevates things though.

    Santa Paws by Teddylonglong
    Santa Claus takes pity on Harry Potter and rescues him from his abusive relatives, giving him one of his puppies as his familiar. What if the power the Dark Lord knows not was his puppy familiar, who could access spiritual magic of the North Pole? Completely AU, partly OOC. Pairing Harry-Luna. Completely AU! Partly OOC, Dumbledore/Weasley bashing.

    At least they aren't shipping eleven year olds like a weirdly high amount of other fics I guess.

    This is why I really hate AO3. The purpose of the tag is so that when someone searches for it, your story will show up. Who would ever search up a tag like "obviously there are no other ships than Draco's parents in this installment"? It doesn't improve the amount of clicks your story is going to get , if anything, you're going to get less clicks.

    The worst part is that this could actually be a decent story. A canon-compliant(ish) fic from the POV of Draco where half the stuff he said in canon is meant to be said in a sarcastic/jokey tone but everyone thinks he's serious.

    Title: Enraptured


    Summary: This is a rework of Keira Andrew's "Kidnapped by a Pirate"... Kindly do not accuse me of Plagiarism again because I am not gaining any financial profit from this and the only reason I am putting this work back up is because all my readers have insisted on it. The summary: Harry never thought that a bloody savage pirate would be the one to free him from the strict and conservative

    Reading this thread filled my heart with joy.

    I've got to save the old threads for the future when I get really depressed.
