    This Harry Potter/Futurama crossover is the first of it's kind. Nothing to write home about but I thought it was kind of funny. Decent grammar and a slightly different take on Voldemort dying.

    Err, you should read the post that's titled "Please read this before posting". Regarding formatting etc.

    Yeah, I read it when clell put it out, he's on my follow list and I usually ignore them. But "Futurama" piqued my interest. Unfortunately it's not funny, and that's critical for a xover with Futurama. Technically well written, but I didn't care for it.

    That was actually quite good! Made me chuckle, and that's worth something I guess.

    This was actually hilarious, very well done. The owl and the suicide twist were particualrly great. Damn, now i want to read something Hp/Futurama that's other than a one-shot

    That was... technically not bad, but really, really boring.

    Futurama has a lot to offer, and it's all missing here. For its comedy, Futuruama relies a lot on details, details within the setting and minor side-actions of the protagonists.

    And this story really lacks details. We get the Longbottom family tree, but that basically is it. I.e. the mechanical post owl is just a 'mechanical owl' - no description of its appeance, no creaking of metal-on-metal, etc.

    2/5

    Eh, I laughed, which is all a oneshot really has to do to earn a 3.5 from me. Rounded up to 4/5.

    Definitely worth a 3/5.

    The only issue I had with the fic was that Scruffy didn't sound Scruffy from Futarama and Voldemort didn't sound like himself (even a good, 1000 year old version of himself). He was a bit too nice IMO. Woulda been funnier if he was aloof, like meeting his missing arch-nemesis a 1000 years in the future was just another day for Scruffy the Janitor.

    I also took issue with how easy it apparently was for Ron, Hermione, and Neville to beat Voldemort and his followers, but that's more of a nitpick than anything considering this is a humor/parody fic.

    It was OK. Some of the attempts at humor seemed a little flat. Like the author was trying to insert humor into the story rather than let the story be humorous.

    The take on what happened after the DoM was interesting, if not unoriginal.

    The ending of Tom was a bit amusing, as were a few other moments, and the writing was decent if not solid. A good 3/5.
