Good morning, lovelies.  Welcome back to “A Daughter,” a fic that moved at a snail’s pace for first two chapters and suddenly skipped half the year in one paragraph.  Pacing?  What’s pacing?

Last time, Selene Darkness Raven Dementia McNoodlefish attempted to befriend Harry et al, went to Defense Against the Dark Arts, and then skipped half the year and ended up in a really worrisome relationship with Draco where she stays silent when he abuses other people and tries to cover his actions up by giving his victims candy and hugs.

The next chapter is, thankfully, shorter than the previous one.  Onward!

Good morning, everyone!  Welcome back to “A Daughter.”  Last time we met, Cellophane was sorted into Slytherin.  That’s seriously the only thing that happened.

*sets the buzzer out on the desk*

This thing is up to 15 and we’re only starting the second chapter.  It’s a bit longer than the previous installments, but a good chunk of today is just the lyrics to “Nights in White Satin”.

My apologies to The Moody Blues.

Welcome back, dearest patrons, to the suckfest that is “A Daughter.”  Last time, we met Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way Selene Amelia Badelia Anna Banana Melinda-Belynda Serpentine.  She made the Sue Counter hit 10 before the end of the fucking prologue, which really wasn’t even a prologue but more of a rambling exposition that ended in her gothing out on the train to Hogwarts.  To summarize what happened last time, all I really need to do is say she’s a part-Veela, “Pureblood Slytherin” luggage rack secret daughter of Snape and a Ravenclaw, the latter of which won’t tell anyone that she’s the girl’s mother, pretending instead to be the girl’s aunt.  Luggage Rack is also a first year who will be going right into the second year classes because she can do spells without a wand and without speaking, even though she’s only eleven.

Part of me really, really wishes I could write this all off as the work of a troll, but considering the author introduces herself as “Dymond (pronounced Diamond just spelled differently)” in her profile, I think this girl is actually under the impression that her Sue is quality writing.

Hello, lovelies!  Welcome to another sunny/rainy/windy/weathery Monday!  I know, I know… another Harry Potter fic?  I can’t help it – when I need a badfic, that’s one of the best places to find one, and I haven’t riffed a Harry Potter fic in a while.  This week we’re going to start in on a fic called “A Daughter.”  As usual, the summary is what caught my eye so let’s just start with that and dive right in.
