[Oneshot] Real Forms by Jeconais - M - Oneshot

Discussion in 'Almost Recommended' started by Redd Lenses, Feb 2, 2008.

    Title: Real Forms
    Author: Jeconais
    Rating: M by Jeconais, but not really
    Genre: Parody
    Pairing: Harry/Tonks
    Published: April 22, 2007
    Words: 896

    Status: Oneshot
    Summary: Written to lightly mock a Harry/Tonks cliche
    Link: fanficauthors

    As per below: This is a drabble. It has not undergone Jeconais' usual revision and is therefore not as high quality as much of his other work.

    After reading so many of those ridiculous Honks fics where he doesn't want to take advantage of her metamorph abilities this was a breath of fresh air.

    A decent one-shot, though nothing terribly special. Gimmicky, like most one-shots (including my own). I certainly wouldn't rate it among his best work. 3/5

    "This chapter is rated Mature please login to continue." really got to me. Edit after I register for ffa.net

    Edit: Hmm. What to say?

    It's mildly amusing. But that's all.

    I would probably like it more if I read more Harry / Tonks stories where Harry says all that sappy crap, but I don't, so it was a moment of pleasure and nothing more. Unsatisfying in the long run, considering that I had to sign up for the damn site to read it ヽ(≧д≦)ノ 2/5

    On a completely unrelated note, I enjoyed looking at your avatar, Redd Lenses.

    I remember this one, I think we have a really old thread about it, or maybe it was mentioned in one. Either way a fun way to spend five minutes.

    I don't think its Library worthy. Not bad but not at all special.
    2/5.

    Heh, not bad but as already stated nothing special.

    Still, I'm a Honks fan so I'll give it...

    3.5/5

    I think it needs to be stated that this is just a drabble. Its not proofread or edited or anything. The reason why this story isn't up to par with most of his work is because it due to its nature hasn't gone through his editing process.

    Seeing as I consider myself a Honks-reading veteran this is quite refreshing. I wont rate it, though, 'cuz we don't rate plot-bunnies here. There's not ebough even for a one-shot. It's just a tiny skit.
    P.S.
    I have to agree with this one. It's barely a T.

    A good plot bunny, nothing more, nothing less. Somewhat enjoyable, but not that special beyond that IMO. I've seen much better from Jeconais, but I completely understand why he wrote it nonetheless.

    It rates a meh...

    Nothing spectacular or funny or even engaging, like some of his other work. While I can relate to the frustration of reading all the overly goody-too-shoes Harry exonerating the beauty of Tonks natural, this was still bland.

    3/5
