    Author's warnings: Sheer, unadulterated CRACK! Not to be taken seriously! Also, all digs at slashers, femmeslashers, mpreg fans, incest fans, angst fans, fans of the improbably named Lubricus spell, and fans in general are done with love. LOVE, I tell you! (Well ... maybe not so much love for the mpreg people. But come on, that's WEIRD!)

    Incredible and Angsty indeed. I loved it. 4.5/5.

    I got to this point in my life without knowing that 'Lubricus' was a thing. I hold you entirely responsible for breaking that streak.

    The fic's cool as a one-off thing and reasonably well written for what it is, but what it is isn't all that much. 3.5/5

    The joke was good, but got played out fast and felt like beating a dead horse by the end.

    Ha! Loved it. Quite clever at parts, and definitely library worthy, though it did drag on a little bit.

    4/5

    Waste of space. The joke was old before it was even made.

    Has a couple good lines. I'd say it's "amusing" more than actually funny. I found Rose's conversation with Dominque kind of charming, in a strange way. I imagine I'd find this a lot less amusing if I'd been around the fandom long enough for this type of meta-joke to be well-worn.

    3/5.

    The idea of using a Muggle computer to help with Hogwarts classes made me cringe at the first paragraph and after that, I just wanted someone to slap some sense into Rose every time she spoke (and I still want it, by the way).

    Not really funny and too long. At least the author is literate. 2/5

    I remember reading this a few months back, and I thought it was funny. There are some things I could do without (the computer, for one, though the story has no basis without it), so I say 3.5/5, rounded up to 4/5 because I actually laughed out loud a couple times. That's what I care most for when I rate crack. It's not a must read, but it's a nice story if you need to kill some time.

    The joke was good at the beginning but it got repetitive by the end. It would have been much better had she ended it at half the length of the story.

    And I didn't like the only kiss featured. Eeep.

    2/5

    I got to, "Draco was sitting across..." and hit the x. Not only for slash (and I would not have rated it had I hit eject for that reason alone), but I've seen a thousand variations of this theme, and none of them amuse me.

    The writing isn't anything special. Technical elements are so-so—Repeated sentence starts, Name 1 did this, Name 2 did that, Name 1 then did this, etcetera. Punctuation from what I read was good, except for a misplaced period. So, average.

    Hermione opening a Muggle-door to her daughter is believable. Why she'd learn anything about Harry, even if it were a joke (didn't get that far) is not.

    Writing = 2.5
    Story substance = 2
    Overall = 2.25, rounded to 2

    The author tried too hard. There are some good lines in there, but that oneshot could have been shortened a lot.

    2.5/5, rounded to 3/5
