    I find it baffling how people like this never even bother to offer an explanation as to how mpreg works (not that I'd want to hear it).

    Can You Ride A Horse? » by J.W.Fathom reviews
    What would a English School of Magic want with a Tennessee country girl? Harry is bewitched, as is Dante, where will this lead them? How will Hogwarts react to a girl that isn't afraid to get dirty? Read, and see. HPxOC
    Rated: T - English - Adventure/Humor - Chapters: 14 - Words: 27,659 - Reviews: 3 - Updated: 2-12-12 - Published: 12-29-11 - Harry P. & OC

    The last time someone wrote a summary like that, I shot a man.

    The ambiguity is what kills this. The complete disconnect between title and summary, the mention of Tennessee, but also the random occurence of Dante. I was sure it was a random male OC, but it might actually be the name of the female OC. Weird.

    I love the random capitilization and spelling mistakes here.

    This is either one of the worst summaries ever or one of the best. It does the job very well but it is also completely retarded.

    Just the sheer WTFness of this.

    A romantic parody about trying to killing enoby darkness? Sounds interesting.

    I feel like I've already read the story without actually reading it.

    Self-explanatory D: It's not even a fic.

    Being a gay Hero hunted by a crazy Dark Lord with delusions of immortality, a barmy old Headmaster who thinks it's his job to save the world, and the odd vampire trolling through the halls at night looking for a midnight snack isn't easy. Just ask Harry.

    I'm not sure if this is awesomely bad, or just bad...

    Just bad. If it's going to be slash, why the fuck would you throw it in like an awkward red-headed stepson?

    It's like Miranda Flairgold's fic with marginally better writing and slash. Not that I've read more than a few chapters of either...

    I read a few chapters here and there of it a while ago. The summary is God-awful, but the AU she built was impressive. Emphasis on the AU. Can't remember most of it, but that's more than I can say for most fics.

    Rambo 5: The Wizard War reviews "You know what you are... What you're made of. War is in your blood. Don't fight it. You didn't kill for your country. You killed for yourself. God's never gonna make that go away. When you're pushed, killing's as easy as breathing." HP/AGHarry Potter - Rated: M - English - Adventure/Friendship - Chapters: 1 - Words: 1,825 - Reviews: 32 - Published: 1-5-12 - Harry P. & Astoria G.

    I don't even... I've tried some of this author's work, and he makes his romantic conquests for Harry known (if its in the summary, somehow someway there is going to be a lemon between the two), so how Harry becomes Rambo and falls in love with Astoria Greengrass is beyond me. I almost wanna see how it turns out, but not really...

    Actually, Harry Potter becoming Rambo could work. We just need Shezza to write it. He writes a very good remorseless!Harry before.

    Firstly, Rambo!Harry. That sounds fucking awesome, it's certainly not the worst idea for a crossover I've ever seen. Secondly, what's wrong with that summary? It's better than most of the ones on FFN.

    This summary isn't full of spelling mistakes but I feel it still deserves to be here:

    wat.

    The worst thing about this is that the story will probably go on get many more reviews than half the entries in the Library, though I suppose they'd consist of 'OMG SEW GD' and 'MOAR PLZ'.
