    Main Idea:
    Harry has a personality like Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. Somewhat insane and eccentric, but a genius.

    This is meant to be a comedy of sorts, but it can have some more serious parts to it as well. I'd like the finished project to be at least 100,000 words per year, so 700,000 total if you plan on doing the full 7 years.

    Rules:

    1. Harry must not be sorted into hufflepuff.
    2. Harry must seem a bit eccentric and insane like Jack Sparrow, but not retarded like Luna
    3. Harry does not have a horcrux in him, if you need a way to get rid of it use the basalik biting him as an excuse.
    4. Harry should be wanted by every female in the school (yes, even slytherins). He should know that he's extremely wanted and play that to his advantage in some situations, but not act like a pompous ass like Draco.
    Harry may not have a romantic interest in any of the following:

    1. Any male character what so ever
    2. Luna
    3. Milicent B.
    4. Tracy D.
    5. Any teacher besides Prof. Vector or Prof. Sinistra.

    Last minute thing to think about:
    Jack Sparrow is almost always looking out for himself above all others, but there are notable moments when he does look out for someone else. Like when he has Will stab the heart so he doesn't die. A similar thing can be done in the 3rd task of the tri-wizard tournament, perhaps instead of grabbing the cup himself he discretely helps another person through and lets them grab the cup (perhaps Cedric?) to help with self esteem problems, or something. Even though it's not a life-or-death thing it still shows that he does have moments where he helps others instead of himself. Of course the Voldemort would use their blood to come back and not Harry's, but that's not important anyway since there's no horcrux in Harry.

    So what you're saying JackSparrow, is that your idea for a story is where Harry is Jack Sparrow, and every bitch wants Jack/Harrys dick.

    Sounds good to me, Jack. :awesome

    Riiiight.

    Anyway. This seems silly. I'm not even sure what you could get out of this.

    Self-insert wank. Yeah, why not just go read Harem smut? (Though to be entirely fair I've only ever found one that's a decent length and has readable language).

    See, this is what I was wondering.

    Does it count as self inserting, if the person doing the inserting(the author) is not the one being inserted?

    Are you trolling or just retarded?

    If you're trolling, well I smiled and I guess I'm falling for the bait.

    If you're just retarded, well, not much I can do to help ya matey.

    (See what I did there? Arr)

    Is the braided beard optional in this story?

    Wow! So many interesting replies! Thank you all for taking time to post your criticism!
    Because I can't find any decent Harem smut.
    When he gets to age 16, yes the braided beard is required.
    No, you seem to have misunderstood me, Harry is still Harry, but with a personality of Jack Sparrow.

    That poses an interesting philosophical question - is Harry still Harry if he has a personality of Jack Sparrow? Or is he Jack inserted in a place of Harry in HP books. ;)

    Obviously since he's still going to be named Harry, then he will be Harry, just with a non-canon personality.

    Now if we renamed the character Jack Sparrow, then yes, he'd be Jack Sparrow with the personality of himself in the Harry Potter series.

    Does this make more sense?

    I think the character of Jack Sparrow who has just been renamed as Harry Potter can be better described thusly.

    So you basically want somebody to write Harry doing a shitty Keith Richards impression?

    Syaoran and I wanted to do this fic a while back. I think it'd be awesome.

    Excuse me a moment while I leave the room so that I might finally stop laughing at this. Take it from someone who has written terrible smut:

    Decent [Adjective] smut does not exist. It's smut. Take what you can and fucking deal with it. You might also check into porn, like us sane people. Much better than fapping to shitty stories written by idiots.

    The Unexpected Result Of... is a halfway decent H/Multi smut story. Warning, underage.
    It Could Only Happen to Harry is also fairly good.

    That's all I can think of, really.

    Oh, and Big D on a Diet wrote some decent shit but it's all short and incomplete (yahoo group). Still, worth reading.
