Re: Fan-Fiction Discussion (Including Harry Potter Fan-Fiction)

I stopped reading fanfiction a year ago, because it got to a point where everything I read either had a) really bad grammar, or b)the stupidest plot ever (unless it was Parody). I only read it occasionally now.

Part A:

1. What type do you generally like to read?
Definately Hogwarts era. Too many cliched Maurader era stories out there.

2. What do you like better?
Alternate Universe

3) What genre do you like in Harry Potter fan-fiction?
Comedy or General. But when I read fanfiction a lot, I would read a lot of Angst. But that was back when I was AngstyTeenager!Nomolous.

4) What do you particularly look for in Harry Potter fan-fiction?
Good grammar, spelling, and writing. If the writing is bad, but the plot is good, I still won't read it. I also look for originality.

5) What do you not like to see in Harry Potter fan-fiction?
Things that happen for no reason at all. Or Hermione "maturing" and her hair turning into "a sea of chesnut and cinnamon waves." *snorts*

6) Have you written Harry Potter fan-fiction before?
When I was thirteen, I wrote a story about the young Marauders waiting for their facial hair. It was really stupid.

Part B:

Never read that much outside of Harry Potter. Just a few LotR and Star Wars parodies.

Part C:

1) Any Pet Peeves when it comes to fan-fiction?
Grammar and spelling! Please have someone beta your fic before you post it. And make sure your beta is smarter than a second grader.
