1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    It's a three. Crabbe and Goyle get the best scenes, and they're worth reading the whole thing for; the rest is funny, but forgettable.

    How the hell did you find this gold nugget in a sea of AU/OOC tripe on that site?

    I'm not super active there, but I check in every couple days. DLP can kind of be an echo chamber at times (like any online community, really), and occasionally someone recommends something good. That's how I found The Anatomist, too, by the way, which is a really excellent piece of Sherlock fanfic. (They occasionally have threads about non-HP fanfic).

    Yeah, it's mostly worthless (every day there are posts where people say "hey I'm looking for fics that do X" and 95% of the time I'm like, "why would you ever want to read X?" But occasionally there's something from out of left field, like this.

    I really enjoyed it, this is my type of humour. I enjoyed all of them, but Malfoy and Zabini were a bit of a disappointment. Quite a bit, actually, but this is easily a 4/5.

    I did chuckle a few times. Crabbe and Goyle were great, but the others fell kinda flat. Malfoy especially, because of the hair jokes that simply don't have a punch anymore. Malfoy's scene was saved by Snape trying to fish a hair-care potion out of him.

    Still, it's a parody and Snape was pretty funny. That's why it lands somewhere in the middle, with a slight tilt towards the "good" territory.

    3/5
