    Worst Summary Ever (in my opinion):

    "I'm not good at summaries. Just read the story please." Or any variation of that.

    Ugh, it makes me so mad. People who do this don't even try, and usually the stories are shit.

    I mean, if you can't even write a summary it makes sense that you fail at writing a story as well.

    I don't understand how anyone can actually like this shit. Making canon nice people into the worst sort of abusers so thoroughly stomps on my suspension of disbelief. And there are so many far less stupid ways you could create the conditions where this crossover takes place.

    How about "parents die in a horrible accident and MC is sent to live with relatives in another country!" Cliche? Yes, but at least it's not retarded like a baby found face down in the bath tub.

    Not exactly a summary, but a writing prompt from reddit/r/writingprompts, but I couldn’t find a better topic for it

    The Apache is such a meme at this point… still funny, though.

    Isn't it great when the hurt and the comfort come from the same source? The adult rescuer grooms the child for molestation, but hey, he's got soothing words and a sexy baritone voice. So elegant and romantic.

    Draco is a dominant Neko that likes Harry! Harry is an ordinary human who not only is abused by the Dursleys but by some people he thought he could trust. What happens when their friends are convincing them to confessor each other? What will happen when other people find out? Read to find out!
    Yep, it sounds like shit. Flaming dog shit.

    The first mistake of anyone reading this summary was clicking on a Wattpad link... (EG is whistling nonchalantly)

    I took a peek at it.
    It's even worse.
    I switched to AO3 because of it. I used it when I was 11.

    Ugh. It almost like the know nothing about Sauron.

    He's an angel know for his technology and craftsmanship. He served Aulë, the angel of craftmanship. His entire thing was being interested in making and building things. It was also his downfall to becoming Sauron (a theme I don't like very much). So yeah, good job mangling a fallen angel known for being cunning and using technology to defeat his foes.

    When your fic needs a legend at the start of the first actual chapter, you know it's gonna be good.


    Sauron wouldn't even need an army to conquer the real world. His greatest strength before the third age was in manipulating peoples arrogance and ambition to his own ends, it would take about five minutes to have all the most powerful world governments secretly serving him.

    Also, a different story…

    How do they come up with these names?

    The idiocy doesn't seem to end.

    I like how they feel the need to specify that this differs from the movies.

    Yes. Language set to english, rated: all and no angst and then I just read whatever seems interesting. Or not horrifying, as it is.

    In His Shadow » by tpaturi Èleanore Jamie Alexandrie-Anais Adélaïde Margaux Potter was always overshadowed by her brother. Forgotten. However, it's time things change, and she'll come out on top.
