Hello, dear Patrons, and Happy Festival of Consumerism to all my fellow Americans. And for our international Patrons who live in places that don’t celebrate the American Thanksgiving but still have Black Friday sales – sorry ’bout that.
I’ve decided to ‘treat’ everyone to a short fic from an author who technically hasn’t been in the Library before – AuthorAndrewCharlusPotter. I say technically because damn but does this boy have a lot of sock puppet accounts, including one where he claims to be the real JK Rowling, but doesn’t really make any effort to alter his writing style between accounts and mostly seems to be using them to reinforce his particular brand of rabid fanboy nonsense showcasing a very strange preoccupation with blood, hair color, and the torments of Wizarding Hell visited upon non-canon couples and the authors who write them.
This one starts off relatively ‘normal’ by badfic standards but then drops sharply off the map and into Batshit Crazy Land.
Sounds like fun!
The Weasley Curse
That would be the fic title, yes. There was some vague mentions of a curse in a previous fic – one allegedly written by JK Rowling and not AACP, I might add – but that particular one focused more on the way names of people destined to be together can “sound right” together and some sort of strange blood-bonding marriage ceremony that causes both spouses to die if there’s ever any infidelity instead of the alleged curse.
Like most of the author’s works, this one starts off with a rambling Author’s Note; sorry, with two rambling Author’s Notes.
(AN: All whom marry into the Weasley family become redheads but if a female weasley marries someone outside of the family, she takes on the hair of her husband, while the husband takes the hair of his wife. Before they get together… In other words, if Ginny marries Harry, and Harry marries Ginny, Harry then becomes redhead, while Ginny will be raven haired. So on an so forth, but it only happens with female Weasleys, but not the male weasleys because the male weasley are always redhead even when they are born.)
That’s … That’s not how genetics work. Like, at all.
Uhh…hey everyone, it’s been a hot minute, huh?
If nothing else, it’s been long enough for me to finally watch the Star Wars franchise, the entire MCU, the X-Men franchise, and the Jurassic Park series. I even played Mass Effect for the first time (as far as you know). Imagine all the new fanfiction topics I can riff on now.
Anyway, here’s a Percy Jackson fanfiction I found on the orphans sheet.
Don’t look at me like that, I’m lazy. Shut up.
2488: Mass Murder Effect: The First War Crime (Was Committed By The Protagonists) — Chapter 8 Part 1Posted: November 26, 2019
Hello hello all you patrons, and welcome back to Mass Effect: The First War.
Previously, turian forces made landfall on Earth and started beating the crap out of the Alliance and UN. And, really, that was about it.
Oh yeah except that the humans fought back using anime mechs, which was never put on the Bingo Board because I never thought any HFY story that took itself even remotely seriously would actually try it. This is the second or third time that has happened with this story; somehow it has actually gone beyond HFY and into something that’s a class all its own.
I still don’t know why the author even thinks giant robot wolves would even work when even the DARPA brochures he seems to consult for the majority of his technical background acknowledge that they are at the very least unfeasible with anything resembling current technology and only applicable to very rare military situations.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your guest host, BatJamags, and I’m back with the midpoint of our harrowing journey through this five-chapter chunk of The Shadow Warriors! Before we get started, here’s your chapterly news briefing:
Chapter 28: Happy Birthday/Halloween
Yello, dear Patrons, and welcome to the third and (thus far final) chapter of SH.
In the previous chapter
Hugh Mann Ryan was dragged into the school by Rea, who is actually some sort of hall monitor of some sort – presumably this is why she was swimming around outside the school in her terror-fish form. Once inside, he was taken to Empra, the school’s headmistress, who was swimming around in a giant tank before changing into clothing that wasn’t quite the right size so her breasts partially popped out. She then informed Hugh Mann Ryan that she hadn’t sensed any other survivors so they were probably all dead.
And on that cheerful note, on to the next chapter!
Data Entry 3: The Food Chain
This was mentioned previously, but there was no explanation given. Hopefully the author’s had time to come up with something by now.
As Ryan let Empra’s words sink in, he was escorted by Rea to the living quarters part of the Aurora. Here, there were individual cabins a lounge and a dining area.
“School starts at 0800 hours,” Rea stated. “Don’t be late.”

Critiqued by TacoMagic and Retired Darth Lord Crunchy
Heyo, patrons! Welcome back to the final installment of Chapter Twenty-One! What did we do last time, Crunchy?
“Musical spinning and moisture followed by copious female speak. Beyond that, the start of spelunking.”
Honestly I didn’t think even that much happened. Regardless, let’s jump into the last bit and see if Vikki can finish strong!
(Spoiler from the future: She can’t.)
