    Title: Sisters in Law
    Author: Tinn Tam
    Genre: General
    DLP Category: General
    Pairing: None
    Words: 4,354
    Published: August 1, 2007

    Status: One-Shot
    Rating: M
    Summary: One morning, Fleur and Ginny have a little conversation of their own. Initially written for DLP's Ginny Kill Off. Warning: Strong violence.

    FF.net link: Be Gentle.
    DLP WBA link: Veela loves you!

    This little piece proves that girls really do have a more vicious sense of cruelty than boys.

    Other than that bit of important evidence: Entertaining like hell, I laughed and cringed at places. I am even more solidly convinced that Tinn needs to write us some truly twisted dark fics.

    The one-shot has very good description and mood setting, something that is rare for fics this size; it makes for a complete short-short story.

    Great characterization, Fleur has more depth than what Rowling gave her, and no it isn’t the typical fanfic description of her with legs in the air or whining about being too pretty to have friends. You actually root for her, again showing depth of character in a short piece gives it points.

    Lastly it is a ginny kill off entry but strangely without the very typical gratuitous gore. So it is a fresh take on it.

    5/5

    Not too bad. 4/5, because fleur should have been masturbating to this one.

    4.5/5 It was excellent.

    Beautiful way for Ginny to die, by getting a makeover.

    It was just lacking that little-itty-bit that would make it perfect.

    Shit, posted in Work by Authors by accident while reading the replies to the thread instead of this. :(

    4/5 - I don't usually enjoy one shots but I enjoyed this very much

    Quite frankly, if Fleur was masturbating to disfigured!Ginny, I would find the fact that we're both French extremely upsetting .

    Dunno... This one was an entry for the last Ginny Kill Off, which I started months ago then abandoned; I found the beginning in an old folder and finished it today 'cause I couldn't find the inspiration to update another of my fics.

    I'm going to hell for laughing but that was a funny one-shot. Thank you for sharing Tinn.
    Can't resist also laughing at the oh-so-French "death through fashion"
    You must suffer for your beauty!!

    Loved the French... just... awesome.

    4.9/5, because I don't give out 5/5 to one-shots on principal.

    I'm overcome with a sick kind of laughter. It's awesome, and any other word under the sun meaning the same thing.

    5/5

    Thanks for the reviews, all! I really appreciated each and every one of them.

    Logrus, your logic baffles me -- IMO a one-shot has a much better chance of getting a 5/5 than a chaptered story, where there's always a risk for it to go down the drain and/or (given the superior amount of words) contain a few irksome little details. That said, I'm perfectly happy with this 4.9/5, so thanks for that. :p

    Last, to the mod who might move this to the library: I'm thinking that "AU" would be more appropriate a category, since it's not DH-compliant. Thanks!

    My reasoning is, it's too easy for a one-shot to be perfect :p. I really only give 5/5 to chaptered stories that are complete, and blow my mind. 4.9 means it blew my freakin' mind, but I just can't give something that short or unfinished a 5/5.

    Isn't every fic in existence technically AU now? Shouldn't we now use the term AU for fics that deviate very early on in the series? To me, anything Post-OOTP is not AU, as the Harry Potter had it's basic plot all structured out by then.

    Oh my God. This is sick, this is ... just great.

    I´m still grinning like mad.

    Tinn Tam has not only proven with this wonderful entry for the Ginny Kill Off that he can write the best flames I´ve ever read but also some really wonderful humor.

    Keep up the good work.

    I agree. IMHO OOTP will likely remain the main launch point for most HP fanfiction, simply because of two reasons...

    First, its the best point to split because by the end of HBP you're entering the end game while with OOTP its more the wars just offically gone hot.

    Second, OOTP was possibly the best book of the series and the later two don't compare. Also, they make the Ginslut relationship entrenched canon and we can't have that... at least not without stomach cramps.
