I encountered quite a few amusing little bits, and I'd like to share them with the rest of the world. First, there are so many Hermione-going-back-in-time-and-hooking-up-with-insert Marauder
"neither Remus nor Hermione noticed. They were too involved with kissing each other senseless."
Now, I have to ask myself: is "kissing each other senseless" really a good analogy for a heavy make out moment? I mean, why would you want to kiss someone senseless--then you'd just be kissing an unconscious person and really that's just a step away from kissing a dead person (which is only acceptable in things like Moulin Rouge)
Second, and probably worse, I encountered something in a Sirius/Hermione story that is one big sap fest, involving much Hermione/Sirius making out and her saying how she's "not ready" to go further. Much joy...but I digress. So, in one very pivotal scene Lily Evans (future Potter) comes to Hermione before the Autumn Ball and says this classic line: "I need a charm...A Contraceptive Charm... I think it's time for me and James. I want to move forward, and so does he, but we need to be safe." *gags* Yes, that was much cause for laughter.
After reading this business you may say "Why on earth did you keep reading them?" Well... reading bad writing is nice boost to the self-esteem isn't it? I'm sure all of you, my fair readers, are feeling better about your own writing skills. Plus, well... I have no other defense other than that they can get rather addicting. And, you know, they aren't all bad. I have encountered at least, oh, one or two that got along all right. You know, stories that didn't include things like "your so cool" or "he through the ball." In all honesty, I read one of those one or two good stories (ok, so it was sappy...but that was a weird weekend) until nearly six in the morning one Friday night and ate Hagen Daz. Like I said, it was a weird weekend and has not been repeated. *phew*
In short, if you're looking for some poor entertainment but something to laugh about, head on over to fanfiction.net. I'm sure there's bad writing to be had in any category. Heck, there's probably bad writing on this blog...but at least there are no Contraceptive Charms.
