    Title: Harry Potter and the Assignment
    Author: thesteffis
    Rating: M
    Genre: General
    Pairing: Harry/Gabrielle/Tonks
    Summary: [PP3 Challenge]Harry's received a new job. Playing babysitter for the hottest singing star in the wizarding world. Dealing with memories from the war, a growing attraction to Tonks, and an overly affectionate teen diva... it may be too much. HxGxT
    Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2935596/1/

    It's only one short chapter, so probably not enough for most people yet. I'm just so happy to see Steffi writing again that I couldn't wait to plug the lazy bum. Go steffi go!

    OoooOoo *squeals* This guy rocks. Really the main reason I hate ff.net's policies is cause they screwed over his stories and Master E's stories.

    Taure - steffis used to write back inq 2003/2004 I think. I really loved his stories, which included HP and the White Queen and one with Harry/Hogwarts I think. He had some very very original ideas.

    This story looks also very promising. I think a few other authors tried to take up this or a similar challenge, but I'm almost positive he'll have some very twists up his sleeve. The writing and descriptions of scenes are also very top notched. Highly recommened. Big props to nonjon for pointing this out. Thank you! Thank you!

    Co-sign, I found it annoying that Harry defeated Voldemort yet some girl in his year is giving him Orders. Not to mention the premise of Harry defeating the most feared Dark Lord in hundreds of years, and is now doing bodyguard work. But, at anyrate this guy has proven himself as a good writer in the past, so we'll see.

    It's only one Chapter, thus a bit early to judge. But it seems interesting so far. A bit odd with Zabini Harry's boss though.

    I liked the interaction between Harry and Zabini, she (it's a she in this fic right?) was being all domineering but secretly pining for him... which I thought was a bit funny. Anyways, there are so many directions that this fic could go, I hope that it ends up being a good one. From what I've seen so far, it looks like it will.

    I really enjoyed this! Blaise as Harry's boss didn't phase me at all, the characterisation was done too well ... hilarious.

    I really doubt thesteffis's writing would disappoint anyone here. The problem is with getting him to update. When he used to write, it was like once every couple of months.

    Gone.

    The author page on FF.net is also empty, leading me to suspect there will be no more of this one. There are two chapters in the DLP.net archives if anyone wants them. If anyone has the rest of the chapters (were there more than two?) pls PM me so they can be added to the archive and on the HP Recycle Bin.

    Thanks.

    Alright, so I FINALLY downloaded the archives, giving me the chance to review those stories I couldn't before. This is my first one, and despite being two chapters, I hope is worth it.

    What the fuck? Hottest singing star? Stalked by a Dark Wizard? :wall:

    Ah, so this is a challenge, why would anyone respond to this? :confused:

    The first part of the first chapter is a lame murder scene that makes absolutely no sense at all.

    :wall:

    I seriously have to ask myself as I read on why Harry Potter is even an auror in the first place if he has "scars" left over. Blaise Zabini somehow becomes his superior. Instead of you know, the guy who killed the Dark Lord. Wonder how the interview process went for that one.

    What. The. Fuck. Is. This. Shit.

    Alas no, this is where the "fun" ends as this is all the author posted. Two chapters, abandoned, and such. This fic will get a 2/5 from me, and honestly needs to be taken out of the library.

    Thesteffis seems to have been highly regarded, but from these two chapters there appears to be nothing exceptional about his writing or ideas.

    Gabrielle being a popstar is just kind of stupid and ill-conceived.
