Here is day four of special pet week. I found the summary amusing, but not so much the story.
- About two weeks till the fanfic contest
- Today's reminded me of Alicorn
, so that is our Flashback Sue of the day.
- Today's link of the day
is from TvTropes. Believe me... it fits today's entryTITLE: Parrot My HeartPERPETRATOR: Hanajima-SenpaiSUE-O-METER:COVER/BANNER ART:SUMMARY:”Like any other girl, Hero is in love with Remus. Though every girl has a chance with him, but her. For she's stuck in her animagus form. To him, she's just his pet Parrot.”FULL NAME:
Hero (Hero is not a girls name)... RemusSPECIES:
She is an animagus. She's from Brazil. Remus is a pansy that gives in to his stalker way to easily.HAIR:
She has” a hue of dark red in her hair”.EYES:
She has “apple green eyes”. You know... the eyes I've seen that I would call apple green are all photo shopped.MARKINGS:
“She pictured her body shrinking, her bones becoming smaller, narrower and hollow, her ears shrunk into her head, bright, pale green feathers began to sprout from every pore of her back, arms, head, and tail, and a strong gold feathers sprouted from her chest. In her place was no longer a sixteen year old girl, but a blue and gold Macaw parrot in her place. She spread her wings and took flight into the air, flapping her powerful wings as fast as she could.” “If Hero was human right now, her whole copper colored body would be dark with a blush. She never been so close to a man before.” We then get this description from chapter three. “When Hero was human she was very beautiful. Her skin was a light golden tone due to her Hispanic heritage, her apple green eyes were something she inherited from her French father, her curvy body from her Brazilin mother, and her hair was a mixture of her parents' love. Hero had thick, curly, brown from her mother with red undertones like her father.”POSSESSIONS:
Brazilian fighting skills of course.CONNECTION TO CANON:
Hero is being chased by Death Eaters and changes to her parrot form. She then somehow ends up at Hogwarts and chased by the students. James and company show up at Hagrid's hut. Peter pulls Hero's tail and she calls him the B word. When Remus ask if she's Hagrid's she says “hey baby” and James teases Remus about getting a girlfriend. Later she says “wait up Baby” and then says “sleep over” when Remus realizes she wants to stay with him. She's afeaid of the dark and then lets them know she is actually human. A third year who is upset with what they did to his sister then catches her and squeezes her. (His last name McCabe.) She eats chicken, so she is a cannibal. Instead of getting her help Remus confesses in chapter three that he is a werewolf. (A bit sudden I think...) Later on she gets jealous and “attacked the girl that Remus was crushing on.” (I know the writer meant this to be funny, but it is not. We then get an inner rant from Hero about how Remus belongs to her and not Hero. (The story was kind of cute at first, but this... not cute, not funny... makes me dislike Hero and feel she shouldn't end up paired with Remus with her possessive, stalkerish behavior.) Also... it passes into fall and she doesn't even try to become human. (Yeah... no.) She drops an itching bomb on various students and Remus uses the word “shit”. Then... “Hero was half way to Remus when there was a shout and a spell hit her thin body, suddenly her muscles seized up and she fell from the air and crashed harshly into the marble floor.” So they decide to take her to Harid. But... before they can Remus is attacked by a student and a curse used on him that causes him pain. “I'm HUMAN! Hero felt a shiver run through her body and suddenly her wings became slender arms; her talons lengthen into thin, slim, legs. She wrapped her legs around Nott's waist and before the boy could voice his surprise, all of the training and lessons that were vigorously burned into her brain from Brazil kicked it. Like muscle memory, her hands braced themselves onto both sides of his jaw and with a quick, rough twist, she snapped his neck. The Slytherin collapsed to the ground and Hero shakily stood up. She was still dressed in what she wore months ago, a skimpy night gown. Hero gapped at her hands amazed that there was five fingers in front of her with human skin instead of feathered wings. A groaned broke her out of her trance and she knelt down next to Remus and quickly pulled him into her lap. She ignored the icy, bite of snow on her revealing flesh. (WTF! She just killed another student! Yeah... I know he was attacking Remus, but that shouldn't have happened on school grounds!) Remus is upset and tries to get away, but poor Remus is too out of it from the curse so she gets to nurse him. In the next chapter it pretty much gets brushed aside because she killed for Remus and the guy was going to kill him. (Um... except the whole getting cursed like Remus was shouldn't have been happening.)ORIGIN:
I think it is best to say the writer didn't think things through on this one... what with a sixteen year old witch running from Death Eaters and not being at Hogwarts during school hours. From chapter three... “When Hero was human, she avidly fought against the pureblood propaganda along with her family and friends in Brazil. Though they weren't peace makers like most that fought against the Dark Arts; no—when Hero was human she used guerilla tactics, black mail, kidnap, and murder to fight the Dark side.” In typical stalker behavior Hero goes on about how much she knows him and loves him. (Sorry... this isn't love.) He's then announcing that Hero is human, something I thought
they already figured out. The guys are then like “we know nothing” and “hope to fucken Merlin this works”. She's then talking about how she will protect Remus.SPECIAL ABILITIES:
She is able to turn into a parrot. Well... her animagus form is that of a parrot. She actually can't change back. Also... she for some reason has a run in with the Death Eaters. Because she is conveniently a parrot she can also “talk”. Seems she has also graduated from school as well. She also acts
like an animal... aka as if she has an animal level of intelligence. I mean... she steals food from Lily's plate without thinking twice.” “Hero wasn't the brightest when she was human; a bit of an air-head, but what she lacked intellectually she made up with ambition. She craved to do the best even if her best was adequate at best. When Hero was human she was fun, care free, mischievous, but lazy, impatient, and moody.” (Actually... if the way she acts as a parrot is any indicator it's not an issue of her being an air-head. There is some other issue going on.) "I did. I tried very hard; every day! I just couldn't. My body would not allow me." (Baloney...)NOTES:
I know the writer wants us to believe with the lines... “but she was sill practicing. She wasn't that good at being animagai. She only manage to fully transform twice and even than it was very hard for Hero to do so”... that Hero is just not good at animagus transformation, but what I understand from canon is that if you're able to transform at least once you don't really have problems after that. I also don't think the process going wrong includes getting stuck in animal form.
Those were my initial thoughts when I started into this story. I also thought the story started off kind of cute despite the above issue and other issues.
However, as it progressed into the third chapter Hero started to become annoying and then bam... turns out she is a psychopath. The writer even tosses in an event to show off her killer moves and try to justify her character killing another person... but the problem comes down to the fact said incident shouldn't have been occurring on school grounds. Nott would have known wizarding law and known that a dead or even badly injured student would have meant trouble for him.
And then Hero goes into how much she “loves” Remus. Sorry... but the way she speaks to him. No... she's a stalker and a possessive little b-witch who needs to be sent to Azkaban. The term air-head is not a good description of her either. Actually... if she was a true air-head things wouldn't have gone down the way they did.
Anyways... this story progressed from a possible bad to awful rating to a toxic one. I'm also tagging it with the b swanitis tag... not for the sue mind you but in this particular case Remus.( Convenient really...Collapse )
