    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
