    I see all those best Fic posts and I just know I had to do something about this. Don't know if there is another one like this in existence, but if there is, no problem.

    Okay, list the worst fan fiction you have ever read. The most hated, most cliche ridden, worst characterization, baddest plot etc, etc. Mine would be split between Harry Crow, and some other WBWL Fic with abusive potters, super Harry, Drarry, Nice Voldie.

    I'd like to direct you to here. https://forums.darklordpotter.net/threads/lets-rap-about-terrible-stories.37867/

    I already started a similar thread, there really is no reason to make a new one. I know its hard for you to read past the first couple titles in a forum, but please, just try. And if you're gonna shit on something you need to do better than just a couple lines, tell us why you think its shit, and what you'd do to improve it. And why you should have a thread when the review threads are full of the same thing you're talking here.

    Be better, be different.

    Umm.. Thank You and if I comment on Harry Crow, I would say that there is no conflict there. Harry is the basic Gary stu and Hermione is his perfect counterpart. Dumbledore is manipulative, and basically useless, just like Voldie. And the worst thing to me is, Vernon Dursley brings Harry to Gringotts and manages to have a conversation with Goblins. And Hogwarts also wants Harry, in every sense.
    If I was the one writing this fic, I would have made it with pretty much the same beginning, but with some difference like Dursley abuse for some years, the wards in the house deteriorate. Goblins send their letter to Harry, but they do not get reply. They send one of their muggle spies, they consider muggle beneath them, and use them as spies and slaves. The spy gets Harry and brings him to Gringotts. The Goblins realize that this is good, and such. They train him, blah blah blah. He goes to Hogwarts, a less manipulative Fumbles, and a more powerful Voldie. Harry falls for anyone except Hermione and Ginny, with no slash. Sirius escapes. Harry and Dumbledore try to prove his innocence. They succeed. And etc etc.

    For WBWL, I listed down my reasons for my dislike.

    Talking about how parts of that story make it bad is one thing, you do it in your first paragraph. Your fix it is poorly though out and difficult to follow. If you had written it... but you didn't so summarizing how you would rewrite all the essential plot elements with no context or explanation does nothing for anyone.

    I wrote the way I would re write and makes it good for me. But you are right, it is poorly thought out and bad.

    Don't worry about it, multi threads happen and they aren't the end of the world even if Zombie gets salty. I'd rather have more than one thread on a topic rather than people reviving long dead threads where all the arguments have already been played out (though his was only a few months old.)


    As for me a really poor story I read recently gave Hermoine a tragic backstory that seemed to hinge on the premise that as her parents were muggles they would never truly 'get her' and she has been nobly hiding this pain from Harry and Ron for years and it is somehow worse than Harry living in a cupboard and being brought up by the Dursleys. I noped out when it culminated i n a long chastising rant about how lucky Ron and Harry had it compared to her and they just didnt care about her pain etc etc.

    If you are trying to annoy me, please don't. I am not in a good mood and I certainly don't want to reply to messages like this unless you really want me too.

    We don't, but the best way to write like a brit is to add mate to the end of every question.

    And instead of ass say arse.

    And instead of saying I'm gonna fuck you.

    Say I'm gonna give you such a fonging.

    And when your characters say good bye, use toodles a lot.
