I DIDN’T READ THIS A YEAR AGO LIKE I PROMISED regal-fish I WOULD BUT I’M GONNA DO IT
DO IT TOMORROW
I’M ACTUALLY SO EXCITED
#then read maya’s drop dead gorgeous #WHICH STILL HOLDS UP IN TERMS OF NOSTALGIC HPDM FANFICTION #god this fic was so popular #look at any harry potter rec list circa 2003/2004 and i guarantee this will top it #lmao i can’t believe fiction alley is still a thing #LUISA HAVE YOU READ THE MS SCRIBE STORY?? #lol fandom
i’ve been celebrating neville and harry’s birthdays by reading nostalgic hp badfic lmao i’m very excited about this. i can’t believe this is one of the fics that gave harry/draco their ship name. i can’t belive their ship name is S.S. guns n’ handcuffs. who allowed that? and why?
wait….you want me to read GOOD harry potter fanfiction???? I CAN TRY
and yes!! iirc the above post took place in the midst of of us discussing pre-2005 fandominternet and you reminded me of the ms scribe story!!!
the hp ship names were the best. like i’m so upset this didn’t translate over to other fandoms. i still remember the fiction alley forums and people debating names for like the most obscure ships imaginable (“h.m.s books & looks” is still one of my favourite ahahaha - i’m on fanlore rn and apparently sirius/regulus used to be “cruise of the damned” omfg)
TRULY, “GOOD FIC” IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER. although what can be bad about harry and draco as aurors of the future who may or may not be in love with each other while ron runs a magical car dealership and unspeakable granger tutors crabbe in her spare time? also harry is a veela. the best.
yes i remember now!!!! the online harry potter fandom was such a unique experience aha
