Writing interesting summaries takes practice. [Sep. 3rd, 2004|03:35 pm]
Yaoi/slash that BURNS.


[mood |amusedamused]

And, uh, depending on what sort of story you read and your opinion of the writer, perhaps some intelligence as well.

I have admitted before that I'm not much of a fan for m/m relationships and I don't deliberately go looking for it. It just sneaks up on me. Sort of.

(I am a fan for Voldemort/Harry Potter or Tom Riddle/Harry Potter; both of which the quality and quanity generally stinks.)

Here is an exception. I just went sifting through the ff.net lists for Harry Potter fanfiction, under the character searches of Harry P. and Draco D. The reason why I did this is because I like to read summaries. Now, I know that slash is quite the theme in stories about Harry and Draco, but I did this to find and share some highly amusing summaries.

The Game
HD Harry is beeing raped by the one he loves, but who also is his worst enemy. How will he deal with this? Can he deal with this? And will Draco ever love him back? WARNING; Rape. Chapter 6 up

I think I might want to mention that, upon glancing through the story, the person raping Harry is Draco. (I think it should be mandatory that Stockholm Syndrome should be studied by everyone who writes rape stories.)

Harry is forced to marry Blaise. He is suddenly freed from his unhappy marriage, but still held captive by the pain he endured. Will Draco soften his heart and help Harry heal? Rated R to be safe. Slash.

Is it a small comfort to know that Blaise is male? No? Oh.

Flush Your Troubles Away
Draco is depressed and is unhappy with the way he looks so he finds an alternative way to feel better about himself. WARNING: SLASH and bulimia

I've marked this story for a later Report in the future.

Odi et Amo
COMPLETE. After defeating Voldemort,Harry has to face another big problem: the Wizarding World’s homophobia. But maybe he hasn’t understood that he has an ally...slash (HPDM)

After Voldemort, I don't know if facing homophobia is going to be as big of a problem. I would think, since Harry is The Hero and Voldemort is Very Evil, that Harry's homosexuality is considerably the very smallest of the two evils. One may be surprised with how the hero can get away with everything, including, well, murder.

OH my gosh Kurt Cobain!
WHOO! Harry on Drugs! Crazy gay people on the loose! Drama, drama, drama! Fighting a lunatic Dark Lord and doing acid just don't mix. Harry and Remus bondage! Eventual HD slash! RR NOT A PROMOTIONAL DRUG STORY. Drugs are bad, mmkay.

It's listed under Drama/Angst. This is slated for my next Report.

After all this, I feel it is only fair to add a slash story summary that would make ordinary, sensible slash fans glow with pride. (The story itself also horribly funny, in that oh-this-is-so-wrong-but-I-DON'T-CARE!! sort of way.)
Seven Days
NEW CH 6! (SLASH, PARODY) Virginal Draco Malfoy watches a mysterious raunchy homemade video, and then receives an owl indicating that he will be “deflowered in seven days,” unless he can first uncover the video’s sordid secrets.

The one issue I have with it is the rampant abuse of ellipses, but the potential of an excellent story exists.
Not bad for a parody on Ringu or The Ring, depending on which one you prefer.

Re: that hurt

I, um, hate to break it to you, but two of the aforelisted authors are over sixteen.
