  1. Hey Thorn, I don't have an issue with arranged marriages in general (as a Trope). There are some good stories with realistic reactions. The characters might learn to love each other, or at least work together to achieve common goals, and that can be a great narration and not all that far away from the reality (and even in modern times there are arranged marriages in parts of this world, unthinkable though it is to us). But I have a feeling many writers miss that point entirely. Those aren't that horrible though, I was referring more to the whole "the magical world is low on population, so everyone has to marry and procreate, or like, go to Askaban. And it just so happens they pair up all former Griffindors with Slytherins." There is a number of those, and of all the ones I looked at, there was exactly one where all the characters actually got together and took action against the government, which, to me, would be the logical reaction to that generation. In every other, Harry and Co. just bend over and take it. Like... what? And well, as for females: I still maintain that those writers don't actually know their biology.
  2. I have no idea how m-preg fictions even exist. Maybe a lack of sexual education for teenage (american) writers? In any case, the very definition of "female" is that it is that part of the species that bears children. I'm not sure if the writers of these are aware of the logistics of conception and birth, but the two or three times I got far enough for that I didn't get the feeling they were. Maybe Mary and Jesus are to blame? Who knows. Mary Sue is just boring, not really a hate. It makes me give up a story fast though. Just some examples that really get me to bang my head against the wall: (not sure these are tropes? what exactly are tropes?^^) Harry Potter - Marriage Law - I mean, the concept isn't that far off in terms of fanfic ideas, there is great potential for former enemies to actually work together against a government trying that sort of thing. Only, no writer goes that way! It's more like, "Hey, the government made some stupid law, we really hate it and we really hate each other but, oh, we're suddenly in love." -and that every time I make the mistake to click that sort of fic. It's generally horribly narrated. Harry Potter - Inheritance - Harry inherits a ton of money/ titles, and all he does with it is going shopping like a kid in a candy store. If I had Voldemort after me and I inherited anything between 20 million - 50 billion galleons, a cool wand and a 7 lock compartment trunk would be the least of my worries. Hired Muscle, buying influence in the government, whatever... it's super rare that a writer actually ever uses the money from Inheritance. Same with the titles/government votes. Something that's so dumb it's almost funny is a Harry Potter Non Magic AU It's like... just go call it original fiction and simply use other names for you characters... Harry Potter Magical (creature) inheritance stories are not my thing, but if it also includes having to marry and have sex with your magical creature mate who just so happens to be a very specific person... that's just .... It basically screams "I can't write proper character development and romance so... magic! the characters I want together have no choice!" Meh. Maybe my expectations are too high... /Rant off I don't read much outside of HP, (though I could probably go on endlessly with these HP abomination of plot ideas). Anyway, great to know that this sub forum exists. Hi everyone Sammy
  3. Hey, does anyone know where those disappeared to? An old link I have doesn't work anymore and the search function doesn't turn anything up... Thanks for helping. Sammy

    Chapter 12

    Well Ben's really not having an easy time. Looks like a card house about to collapse.
  5. Hello Sammy Blue

     

    It is 6 AM here(haven't gone to bed yet). So today I am the early worm. I want to wish you a very Happy Birthday and I hope you have a really great day. Be well.

     

    Take care

    Chapter 4

    Well I think the reason he approached them was well done. As for them being in the same place at the same time? Well... that's the thing about writing stories isn't it? There is probably thousands of students coming in new that year and visiting that spot. Out of them only one is there at the same time as Neil & co. Of course you could now tell a story about a different guy that goes there at a different time, but you didn't, because that would be pointless. While it sometimes seems like things just so happen to fall into place, if you look at it differently, of course we narrate the characters that meet, not the ones that don't meet. So you could really say, the reason you're telling Mason's story is because he met Neil at that spot. ❤️ (PS: Did I mention I'm a dad now, too? )

    Aaah, I was so focused in the housing, I didn't even consider they could meet at university looking forward to the next chapter already! The football players at a gay bar sounds interesting too

    Chapter 2

    Great chapter! That place that's up for sale... I have a feeling about that...

    Chapter 1

    Well that was a good start and I liked that you went over many major characters again like you did. While I do remember a lot, it has been quite some time since the last book. I wonder if Ben is our mysterious hunted character? Seems a bit suspicious almost that he got so little mention yet he was mentioned.

    Prologue

    Wow this totally made my day! So far, we don't know much about the story yet, but I agree with what was previously said, I don't think Mason is the one being hunted... Looking forward to reading more.
